hmmmm top "2 vote" film is 69 (with an 1 & 3 ranked votes)

There is only 32 lists ...

Still to come 23 with the following rank :

69,70,73,75,76,77,80,81,84,85,86,87,89,90,91,92,93,94,95,96,97,98,99
32 is a decent amount of participants for this kind of poll.

With that kind of voting spreads of 2 votes movies I would have made it a top 75.
Still thanks for doing this.

Well I don't know what Afro Samurai is, but that screenshot sure makes me want to check it out.

State of Play deservedly on there, would have voted for it if I had been able to come up with a ballot (haven't seen many mini-series and don't have an easy way to figure it out).

US-producted anime with Samuel L Jackson doing one of the lead characters and RZA doing the score.
But the most interesting talent involved is no doubt Takeshi Koike.

I met one of the producers of Afro-Samurai a couple of times when I lived in LA. Later, I told an animation nerd I knew about it, and he reacted like I had met jesus and buddha rolled into one. Still haven't seen it, though.

Surprised to see this is listed as a mini-series on IMDb, never noticed that before. It played in Berlin as one continuous film (I assume other film festivals as well) and was distributed here like that.

Would've voted for Boogiepop and Haibane, but I don't see them as mini-series. They're just regular TV series, lasting 1 season. I assume Lain and Kino no Tabi will pop later on, but feel the same about them too.

Would have voted for Horace and Pete if I had considered it a mini-series. Thought it was a continuous series that was cancelled after one season.

Anime is Kinda difficult to find the right place ....

Is Lain an Mini Series ?
FLCL ... Maybe More

So ... It's less than 16 Episodes so it fits here somehow.

If it first aired on TV in a weekly slot then I consider it a TV series. The 13-ep format is also quite normal in the anime scene.
I don't really see the point of listing them as mini-series, even when they fit the criteria for the poll. But I know I'm a minority in that.

I guess the question is: was there any intention of making other seasons ? That's what makes things like Firefly clearly not miniseries to me, but I don't know enough about the anime world to know how these things work.
