First of all I can never ever tell anyone and impose my top Anime to watch you. All of us have our own preferences, I can only suggest. You have to judge for yourself.
Also I didn’t want to go into long explanations of each anime and it just ends up to be a spoiler. Each one liner is not designed to MAKE YOU watch it. It was just what i remembered from all of these animes.
Of course I watched more animes than these but these are the ones that I remember the most because they had interesting plots, the animation design were great, I cried, I fell in love with them and most importantly I wish that this anime would go on forever and ever.
