Most Favorite Anime Series

by twostepbehind_onestepaway | created - 02 Apr 2014 | updated - 04 Apr 2014 | Public

It's based on my own personal preference.....A lot of great anime series might not be in this list (either because I didn't watch that anime yet or I didn't thought I like that anime more than other anime in this list)......Although ranking in this list based on my preference the order of the titles might change over time and i might add new anime title later on....its only a list of my most favorite anime series (that I have watched up until now)......
