This is just a thread I created to see what everyone’s personal favourite anime is, and the reasoning as to why. I personally have a few anime I would consider my favourites. Though if I had to limit it to one it would definitely be Gintama. In my opinion the most human anime I’ve seen. To start off the anime has exceptionally great characters, to list a few: Gintoki (My fave), Kagura, Shinpachi, Takasugi, Okita, Katsura, Hijikata and who can forget Sadaharu. That’s a lot of good characters. However it’s not just the characters that make the anime great, it’s the balance between comedy and drama/action. This anime is somehow the funniest of all time and one of the most intense at the same time, probably why it seems so human to me. If you want to see some good action definitely check out the shogun assassination arc: it’s one of the best in shounen. And let’s not forget the openings, no kidding Gintama has some of the best if not the best openings and endings. Just to mention Mob Psycho and Gurren Lagann are a close 2nd and 3rd respectively.
