Titles are pretty important to an anime’s identity. They are one of the first things that fans identify and, you know, it’s how they are marketed for money. With any luck, they will be short and catchy — but not these puppies. Oh no, like this intro, they just go on forever and threaten you with hand cramps and headaches as you try to remember them!
Goo Ranking asked the Japanese community to rank the best anime with long titles. They aren’t ranked by character length, just really good shows with long titles.
And for some reason, Japanese fans voted for Oreimo twice.
