As kid growing up during the 90’s, I’ve spent my weekday afternoons and weekend mornings watching some great anime on TV. Now during my time, only a few anime from Japan were shown, but boy did they stick to me good! During my 90’s childhood, I enjoyed such classics like Mobile Fighter G Gundam, After War Gundam X, Gundam Wing, Ranma 1/2 which was my personal favorite, Akazukin Chacha, Yu yu Hakusho, Slayers, Gate Keepers, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Rorouni Kenshin (Which was known as Samurai X at that time), Slam Dunk, Zenki and of course, Pokemon and the original Digimon. For me, the 90’s anime had that certain appeal that most anime nowadays lack.

Now, fast forward to the 2010’s and we are now bombarded with one remake or reboot after another from 2011’s Hunter X Hunter reboot to Space Battleship Yamato.

The 90’s produced some great series and it’s surprising (to me personally) that some big names like Cowboy Bebop and the Gundam series listed above did not even make it to the top 10, however, these are classics and people may just want them to stay as is.

Cardcaptor Sakura ranking low on the list is surprising but it may be because there are some speculations circulating around that the classic magical girl anime will indeed be getting a reboot soon.

Some of the anime which made it to the top 10 did not come as a surprise as some of them like Slam Dunk and Yu Yu Hakusho have ended before the final arcs of their respective mangas. Rurouni Kenshin meanwhile only followed the manga up to the Shishio arc and featured original anime stories onward.
