Reactions Around the Web
Why isn't Hyouka on here?
What about KimiUso or AnoHana? And if we're including movies, then KokoSake too.
I was really glad to see Baccano! included on here.
I was expecting some newer titles on here, but I guess the classics don't really age that fast.
It's sad, but I guess it makes sense that slice-of-life anime didn't make it onto this list...
