Alright, /a/, time to get fucking serious.

Serious Business: There is a big difference between a series that you consider as your favorite, and a series that would be considered as a masterpiece.

A masterpiece, in my opinion, is something that is versatile. If said series is a mecha, it would need to be fucking awesome even without any mecha. It wouldn't need any ass, bullshit, mindfucks, or twists.
A favorite? It's something you liked, most likely by chance or taste.

Give your favorite, and something you consider a masterpiece.

Evangelion is my favorite, but I actually think most of it is shit.
Mushishi was a fucking masterpiece. They took the most horribly boring genre ever conceived and made it awesome.
