Hey everyone! I haven't been posting much here lately. I've been very swamped with school, but I've had this idea for a discussion lately. There have been plenty of discussions on best/worst animators of the series, but I'm curious what individual episodes everyone thinks look the best! I like top tens so I'm going to do a top ten ranking! I've given a lot of thought and this are my picks! Feel free to share however you'd like!

1. 124/125 Ikuko Ito. I decided to combine this in one spot because they both look equally beautiful, and they were done in succession by the same team.
2. 149 Katsumi Tamegai
3. 163 Mari Tominaga
4. 68 Ikuko Ito
5. 44 Hisashi Kagawa
6. 111 Ikuko Ito
7. 120 Katsumi Tamegai
8. 172 Miho Shimogasa
9. 166 Ikuko Ito
10. 6 Kazuko Tadano. Although I actually don't think this is one of the best animated episodes, I included it because it was the first episode of the series I consider to be well animated and have a good aesthetic.

That is my list! I'm very curious to see all your thoughts!!! I included the animation director for each episode, but it's not necessary.

Episode 151 by Mari Tominaga was one of my favorites, along with 171 by Takayuki Gorai. Even Minako Itō and Kiyoshi Matsumoto were nice.

Ones I'm not too fond of were Masahiro Ando's from season 4-5 (I actually was one of the few who liked his style and I feel it went downhill after the third season), and Michiaki Sugimoto, the latter did a better job on Yu-Gi-Oh!

I also love 151! Mari is such an underrated animator! And Ando did have some lousy episodes, but a couple, 60 and 90 in particular, looked great! 60 almost looked like Kazuko or Hisashi!
