I’m the guy kneeling. I cos-played as Johnny from Guilty Gear

This anime is probably the most popular on the list. Excel Saga came to America in roughly 2001 (exports were hard to come by…and usually terrible dubs…dark times indeed) This zany, completely bats#!t crazy anime is a must watch.

It never really got the following it so deserved, even though it hit best seller a few times. its a healthy, yet short 26 episodes. After the first episode, you’ll be hailing Il Palazzo before ya know it. Its not exactly binge-able, so take it an episode or two at a time.
