This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
Combined the average ratings (Critic's & Users) from IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and Letterboxd, and then weighted and tweaked the results with general film data from iCheckMovies (incl. # of Official Top Lists) and IMDb to reveal the 150 'Greatest' Animated Movies of All Time.
This list is from Philip Brophy's book [url=http://filmstore.bfi.org.uk/acatalog/info_178.html]100 Anime[/url] (2005).
"100 Anime is an exploration of the wonderfully complex and beautifully disorienting world of Japanese animation - anime. This expansive and mind-blowing book delves deep into the chaos of meaning gorged by anime's mutation of Eastern/Western themes, images and sounds."
This is not a list of the "100 Greatest Anime." Some of the titles were selected in order to analyze Japanese pop culture and to show how vast the world of anime is. The list is in alphabetical order.
Missing from IMDb:
SD Gundam (1988)
Onderhond's Top 100 Animated Films, as published on the forum of the Dutch website MovieMeter.nl
disclaimer: as of March 20th 2017, five movies will be added to the list each day, until 100 is reached.

Note: I am assuming that Deko-bô no jitensha ryokô is the same as Dekobo no Jidosha Ryoko (jitensha is probably just a misspelling).
"Noir is a genre from the 40s and 50s that features hardboiled cynical heroes, femme fatale, and bleak, sleazy settings. These anime either take place in 40s and 50s, or are considered Neo-Noir: titles that combine elements of Noir in a modern or futuristic setting."
In November 2013, Kadian created [url=http://thecartdriver.com/animetacritic-v-2-more-reviewers-more-lists/]AniMetacritic V.2[/url], a list of the highest rated anime by 161 reviewers and critics (based on ratings from their MAL profiles). It is an expanded version of Scamp's original [url=http://thecartdriver.com/animetacritic-what-anime-reviewers-think-are-the-best-and-worst-anime-of-all-time/]AniMetacritic[/url] list.
This is a list of the top 50 standalone series on AniMetacritic V.2. I am defining "standalone" as any series which is the first (or only) series in its franchise (so sequels and remakes are excluded).
This is a clone of a list I made for a friend who expressed an interest in getting more good films under her belt. Many of these are just plain entertaining, others are essentials. There is a nice balance of english and foreign language films, genres, and tone.

"Some of the best stories ever told have been in anime (Japanese cartoons). They come in all sorts of genres, including comedy, drama, and thrillers. These cartoons are popular all over the world for their incredible art style and in-depth stories that they offer. Whether you are looking for a playful or serious story – and one that is as fantastical or realistic as you want it to be – there is likely an anime out there for you. A lot of anime fans would find it hard to choose a single favorite anime. They have so much variety between them that one may be a person’s favorite in one category, whereas another is their favorite in a different category. This makes it pretty hard to determine which anime is the best objectively. Plus, it is a very personal decision, making it subjective by nature.
One of the more interesting genres appreciated by anime connoisseurs is the horror anime genre. The fact that it is drawn art makes it very easy to introduce some disturbing, fantastical, and implausible themes without stretching a budget or running into similar issues. There is a huge variety of horror anime out there today – it even has a few subgenres of its own. If you are looking for a new show to watch, you might want to consider an anime. Horror fans will appreciate watching a few of these Japanese cartoons. Whether you have seen an anime before or not, you might want to check out the following list of the Top Twenty Horror Anime Series of All-Time."
"When you're looking for a good scare, think about checking out anime series and films. You'll discover a chilling universe of vampires, bogeymen, urban legends, and demons from beyond. Of course, there are a few ghosts and zombies to be found as well. Note that many of these are suggested for teens and up. A few are definitely for mature audiences only."
