LA Times Anime Top 10

Definitely something worth talking about here. LA Times writer, Charles Solomon gives his list ofTop 10 anime from the past year.  FUNimation overwhelmingly takes 7 of the 10 spots.

1. Evangelion: 1.11 You Are Not Alone -  “A must-have for anime fans.”

2. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - “Even more of an emotional and visual wallop than the much-loved original.”

4. Eden of the East - “An exciting, off-the-wall fantasy.”

5. Oh! Edo Rocket: Season 1,  Part 1 - “Part Jules Verne-esque adventure and part knock-about farce.”

6. Soul Eater: Part 1 - “Freewheeling silliness and supernatural adventures.”

7. Trigun: The Complete Series Box Set - “One of the best-loved series of the ’90s”

8. Dragon Ball Z Kai - “Funnier and more exciting than the original.”
