The 100 Best Anime of the Last 100 Years (according to TAAF)

In case some of you are not aware, this year marks the 100th anniversary of the Japanese animation industry. Recently, the staff of the Tokyo Anime Award Festival put together their list of the 100 best anime to be released/launched in the last 100 years, and apparently, the titles are in order of release time. If you're curious about whether or not any of your favorite anime made the cut, you can view the entire list at the Otaku USA website (I know some of my favs did).
