Austria erit in orbe ultima ("Austria will be supreme in the world", sometimes incorrectly given as "Austria will be the last (surviving) in the world"). Austriae est imperare orbi universo ("It is Austria's destiny to rule the whole world").


1. Attack on Titan

Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, very sad things constantly happening

3. Big O

Take a millionaire like Bruce Wayne, put him in a giant robot, and then have him fight other huge robots. Also, bonus, the whole show is one big quest to solve the mystery of how every single person in the city lost their memories all at the same time. It's trippy and cool and definitely a weird, good time.

5. Cowboy Bebop

Take the coolest crime noir you've ever seen and put it in space. It's known for its gorgeous art and beautiful jazz-inspired soundtrack. There's a reason it's a modern classic.

7. Death Note

An overachieving high school student gets a notebook that will kill anyone whose name is written in it. When he starts killing bad guys with it, let's just say things get out-of-hand real quick.


Oh boy, so FLCL is only six episodes long and let's be glad it's that short. An angsty teenager discovers that when he, uh, becomes aroused, giant monsters crawl out of his head and start to destroy the city. Luckily, he has a robot friend that helps him beat them. It's also not really about any of that. But it is. But not really.

10. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

Inglorious Basterds, Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Harry Potter (especially the later books), steampunk

11. Fushigi Yuugi

Chronicles of Narnia, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, world-spanning adventures
