Is there a true list of must-watch anime? Given the diversity and longevity of anime as a genre, it's a tough claim to make. That's probably why the guys at FrontRowCrew, hosts of the GeekNights podcast, are making it. At a full afternoon panel at Anime Boston Friday, Rym and Scott gave us their guide to landmark anime series and films that shaped and influenced the medium. These are the gold standard for their particular genres.
The hosts professed an affection for shows that aired on the Sci-Fi channel as they grew up—shows that, like RoboTech and Akira, were among the first works of anime to find fans across the pond.
Some of the titles below are obvious classics, while others are lesser-known influencers. What do you think? Is this the ultimate list of fundamental anime?
