Anime of the Year 1998-III Summer - Serial Experiments Lain

Anime of the Year 1997-IV Fall - Kenpuu Denki Berserk

Kenpuu Denki Berserk is inevitably the winner here, but I also favor Elf wo Karu Mono-tachi II as a firm masterpiece because it's the rare sequel that even surpasses great original. Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan - Ishinshishi e no Chinkonka can be considered as borderline masterpiece.   1. Kenpuu Denki Berserk Berserk 剣風伝奇ベルセルク [OLM] (Finished 25/25) Tags: Seinen Gore, Military
