    Maybe. There's always someone voting for a favorite when it asks for something else.

    Yeah but that sit was crazy. It was like Yu-Gi-Oh times 3. I once went to a mall that was having some Pokemon event. They had to close it down because there was more people than fire safety standards allowed!

    Untrue. G Gundam's influence cannot be overstated. There are many, many manga and video games that reuse G Gundam's plot and characters nearly verbatim. It was also most Japanese viewers' first exposure to Yasuhiro Imagawa, who is one of the defining mecha genre directors.

    To put it a different way, the ending of the parody baking manga Yakitate!! Japan is only comprehensible if you're familiar with the plot of G Gundam and recognize that it's being parodied. That's how famous the G Gundam plot is-- you can assume everyone reading a manga in Japan recognizes it.

    its that the same Yasuhiro Imagawa who was Story Boarder for Z Gundam Episode Director for Sentō meka zabunguru so if your of my age Z Gundam would have been First Exposure to 今川 泰宏

    She meant as a DIRECTOR. Although it really wasn't Japan's first exposure to him as a director, as he had already been working on Giant Robo: The Animation prior to that.

    Also, not all of us grew up in Japan, much less when Z Gundam was airing.

    1. Giant Robo wasn't finished until 1998 due to production delays and as an OVA, was probably watched by fewer people than a TV series would have been. G Gundam finished airing in the 94-95 season and was extremely popular toward its end.
    2. Yasuhiro Imagawa's actual first series as director (that I know of) was Mr. Ajikko, an adaptation of a cooking manga. It was pretty popular and aired for around 100 episodes. That said, this isn't really the sort of material Imagawa became best-known for, although there is a guy in Mr. Ajikko who's pretty reminiscent of Master Asia.
    3. Imagawa's contributions to Zeta are why Tomino chose him for G, but it should be noted that he did not work on every episode of Zeta Gundam. That show employed fourteen different storyboard artists, in all.
    4. Generally, nobody cares much about minor credits like episode direction, storyboard, or unit director when it comes to a show's creative content. It's rare for those creators' individual styles to substantially influence the finished work. The credits that get the most attention tend to be director and producer, who have final say over everything.

    1. Fair enough.

    2. Well, I learned something new today.

    3. See above.

    4. Hey, it was bigone that mentioned the fact that he worked on some story boards for Zeta Gundam.

    Heh, I didn't mean to imply that all of my responses were directed completely at you by quoting you. Sorry about that, if you felt singled out.

    Like most Americans, most exposure to Tomino ended up being completely backwards. I watched a VHS fansub bootleg of Char's Counterattack in the 90s, got hooked on Gundam, then discovered Tomino's other original IP creations. To this day I'm still working through his backlog.

    My personal favorite Tomino shows are probably Xabungle and King Gainer.

    I think Gainer is seriously overlooked sometimes.

    As one of his series that doesn't rely on "Hey? These guys? They're all dying before I finish this. ALL OF THEM."...yeah, it definitely is.

    This list of 100 animes was published in Animage.

    The only rankings is the spots 91-100, who are the Top 10 of the readers. This Top 10 was also published separately. Through this Top 10, we could discover that n°92 of the list must be Saiyuki.

    The other 90 animes were a choice of Animage itself.

    Why is there missing spots ? Because the guy who posted the news on a Google group only wrote the animes he recognized. And he never posted a scan of the article, like others asked. Someone else said he saw the article and that Heidi was on the list too.

    If Heidi is really on the list (but which number ?), this leaves 24 missing spots.
