Just kidding, think what you want, there's no point arguing with Eva fans. Nandemonai Nandemonai. Jiane.
Don't get me wrong... I love EVA, but I just think that it tends to dominate these things. I can name at least ten different anime series or films that I've seen that I enjoyed as much as (or more than) Evangelion. And that's what it comes down to - enjoyment. EVA's plot depth is something uncommon, but a series with a plot nowhere near as complex or deep (like Dirty Pair or Ranma) can easily be more enjoyable.
I enjoy Trigun because of the fantastic characters and story presentation style. It's not one of those series that has all the fun stuff at the beginning and then chucks a load of spoilers at you halfway through, making the series dark and serious for the rest of it's days. It spends several episodes larking about, gives you some plot (woven in with the old spirit of the series), and then spends some more time larking about until the next bit. I'm not at the end yet, but there's been a fair bit revealed already, and the series has succeeded in never losing it's original feel.
That's one reason why I like it better than EVA. Go and watch Episode 18 of EVA, then go and watch Episode 8. Doesn't feel the same, does it? Do the same thing with Trigun, and it does, give or take a character or so. There's pleanty of series like that, and pleanty that just spend their time being funny and loveable - and that's what I love.

I found Neon genesis's animation style rather flat and dull, and with the dark and contraversial storyline I found it a little depressing. I like my anime bright, cute and colourfull with a actionate storyline full of funny and serious characters. Like Nadesico or plastic little!

This is only the beginning...
I agree with whoever said that we should have a 'best series APART from Evangelion' poll.

This may be my personal lack of knowledge showing here...but I bet a Japanese anime fan would be astounded at the lack of votes for Gundam.

I haven't checked this in a long time but not much has changed... Eva just racked up a lot more votes...

Cowboy Bebop is still in 2nd though... That's good...

Aaaargh! So many choices!

Kenshin, Gundam, FLCL, Eva, Slayers, Robotech (Well only the Macross Saga for me), Lain, Cowboy bebop, Escaflowne, Trigun....

I think I will go for Kenshin, it is my favourite.

Angry Kenshin or Lain?

I would have to remain with Kenshin because it's the first series besides all those insanely popuar ones I got stuck on. I really like Lain, even though the only character I know about is Lain , and I've been stuck on Weiss Kreuz and Outlaw Star before, but that's about all. I wish I knew more like so many people here...----. Well, enough about that. Yeah, well, I think we all know Eva is gonna win. I don't see what's so good about that series besides Kaworu...

Oh, what a surprise. EVA has 31 votes. How thoroughly unpredictable.
