Anime to Watch Before You Die

Anime News News Japanese Pop Culture News

Recently Japanese media site MyNavi held a poll for it’s readers asking what anime you must watch before you die. The results were determined by over 7000 MyNavi users and as such shouldn’t be taken as solid fact, because you know this is the opinion of random people and this is simply a list of their opinions. Now that I got that out of the way, here is the list of anime they believe you must watch before you die:
