Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
Rounding out our list is an entry which encapsulates perfectly everything that makes anime special: inventiveness, imagination, style, and heart. While it certainly is not the most popular one show on this list, we feel it’s one which hasn’t gotten enough love and attention, despite it being one of the boldest anime out there. Set in an alternate timeline, the series features awesome mecha battles between the world’s greatest three superpowers, commanded by the exiled prince, Lelouch, the show’s protagonist. It’s bombastic, stylish, and wonderfully animated, and it’s the perfect entry to finish off our list with.
