Alright,to start with, ''Im not much of an Anime freak, as you may think off on noticing that ive actually dedicated an entire article on it'' Anime is something I just watch when I suffer from boredom or completle joblessness. I am nor a collector of it nor an addict. (Unlike those who eat,sleep and drink anime, going to such extent, even to have profile pics on it)But has it had an effect on me?..yes,to some extent. Infact the very main blog url, is anime inspired. Over the years boredom has forced me to watch a few. I liked a few while disliked the others. So this article is the ranking of my top 3 anime series-
1) The Full-Metal Alchemist
Summary-"Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain,something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first law of equivalent exchange. In those days we really believed that to be the world's one and only truth." In an alchemical ritual gone wrong, Edward Elric lost his arm and his leg, and his brother Alphonse became nothing but a soul in a suit of armor. Equipped with mechanical "auto-mail" limbs, Edward becomes a state alchemist, seeking the one thing that can restore his brother and himself... the legendary Philosopher's Stone.
This is the series that I completely fell in love with. Having only 51 espiodes, FMA has changed my life alot. From the storyline to the main slogan there is not a single part of it that I disliked. The very own URL of this blog,'ironblood alchemist' is one of character in the series. There is another series called FMA-Brotherhood, which has the same characters, but follows a different storyline. From the world of alchemy to the Elric brothers,human transmutation to homunculi, this series has everything to keep you bound to it, untill its very end.

2) Death Note
Summary- Light Yagami is an ace student with great prospects--and he's bored out of his mind. But all that changes when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami death god. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies, and now Light has vowed to use the power of the Death Note to rid the world of evil. But when criminals begin dropping dead, the authorities send the legendary detective L to track down the killer. With L hot on his heels, will Light lose sight of his noble goal... or his life?
An amazing series. For me DN was divided into two parts. The series was intresting in first half, however after the death of L , it gets a bit boring. But overall a pretty good series to watch. The twists and turns in the mystery solving is truly awesome. Its something that makes you think on what your next move would be. Death note is right up there.

3) Naruto
Summary- Twelve years before the events at the focus of the series,the nine-tailed demon fox attacked Konohagakure. It was a powerful demon indeed; a single swing of one of its nine tails would raise tsunamis and flatten mountains. It raised chaos and slaughtered many people, until the leader of the Leaf Village - the Fourth Hokage - defeated it by sacrificing his own life to seal the demon inside a newly-born child, whose origins are as yet unknown. That child's name was Naruto Uzumaki.
There are two parts to the Naruto series. The childhood days and Shippuden. The childhood days are pretty senseless, more of a story about a little Naruto running around like headless chicken. Although its this series that provides us with a base for the shippuden series. Its the shippuden part what I liked more. More fights , akatsuki and a whole lot of suspense. Naruto is currently the most read manga on the internet, and third on my list.
There are other anime which I have also seen such as bleach( which i would rate as my fourth best ),hellsing,devil may cry etc.But not good enough to beat my top three.. FMA forever!
