So, this is another latest Japan's greatest list, but anyway here it is via Anime Nation:

What do you guys think? This is actually not very similar to other "greatest anime of all time" lists I've seen.
Are these only titles that aired on TV Asahi or something?
Some noteworthy ones:
They like Beauty and the Beast that much too? Cool, they like Disney classics too.
Hamutaro the greatest of all time? Its cute but um no.
Mantantei Holmes (released in the US as Shelock Hound) its directed by Miyazaki. (Some eps.) I saw this anime as a kid, so it does have the nostalgia factor.
Pandakopanda (Panda Go! Panda in US) So its THAT good? Maybe I'll check it out.
Jarinko Chie (Chie the Brat) by Takahata I think. So there's a Takahata full length film but no Miyazaki? Interesting.
