What is your recommendation list?
The name is somewhat self explanatory. There are so many new, old, or never heard of Anime/Manga's out there. With such a variety of Genres and style and a just as or more diverse community consuming these stories, it is difficult to actually label what series are must watch/master pieces.
So here is what this is: These two lists (Anime and Manga) are must watches, they are the tickets into Otaku and Japanese Otaku Culture and should be in everyone's arsenal of known series. They are master pieces which for their own reasons deserve to be on this list. So recommend and discuss your favorite works or just great series on why it should be on this list and why everyone should watch it.
This list(s) should be intelligent and every entry have a set explainable and clear reasons as to why it is a must watch.
Here are examples of how and how to not post a recommendation:
Bakemonogatari is a must watch because of its mastery of story telling, using small clips and fast edits of text to portray the feeling or joke into a scene. Sadly most of this is lost during translation.
Naruto should be on the must watch list because it is so cute! NARUTOXSASUKE FTW!!1 (not hating on Naruto or anything)
Please post a link to the MAL summery page within name text. Visit the Markdown tutorial if you are unsure how.
These lists will be living changing and evolving with the discussion. Each entry will get a summery for the reason it was nominated and will have the argued plus's and minus's. Then it shall be voted in or out of the list.
So let's write this list(s), and see great series we have over looked. Please specify which you are recommending, the Manga or Anime or both.
