* Naoki Urusawa. Having finished 20th Century Boys, I declare it to be one of the greatest works of fiction ever made (in my opinion, the greatest work of ficiton of the decade goes to Full Metal Alchemsit Brotherhood). It contains EVERYTHING that should make an enjoyable experience from great characters to an interesting world. The suspense is very good, a signature of Naoki Urasawa, the story itself is unique and something that nobody has seen the likes of before and everything flows so naturally and comes together so perfectly. It doesn't even contain a lot of motivational speeches which even good anime are guilty of using, like ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' and ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and yet, it says little and leaves such a huge impact. It is depressing but is also very idealistic; its both a deconstruction of shonen and a reconstruction in the end. In all, to say it is genius is an insult to the book itself. It makes ''Watchmen'' and ASongOfIceAndFire look like they were written by five-year olds.

* ''WatershipDown'' has some of the most gorgeous description that the world has ever seen, and pacing like no other. The way Richard Adams fills the silences of his story with lyrical and vivid depictions of the surroundings is an inspiration.

Added DiffLines:

** Part of what made Korra awesome was that it was written to deal with problems that are relevant to the ''audience''. Terrorism, corrupt governments, and Kuvira's appeal to strength of a strong leader, Korra didn't talk down to the audience with simple plotlines. It showed them problems and trusted that they would be intelligent to understand what was happening.

Added DiffLines:

** A very special round of applause has to go to book 3 for being the best possible season in the entire franchise. It takes everything good about both shows and weaves these good aspects together so well. Also, this book managed to do really well in the continuity department. The best part is that, while there were many filler moments in ''Airbender'' and previous seasons of ''Korra'', not a single moment in book 3 of ''The Legend of Korra'' feels wasted because every single moment has some level of overall importance to the story.

* WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic: It's so refreshing in this day and age of cartoons featuring brainless sociopaths to see a show with such well developed and memorable characters and plots that don't end with needless cruelty. It's also rare to see a show that beautifully plays aesops straight, instead of [[SpoofAesop cruelly parodying them.]] Best of all, despite having a mostly female cast, the show and it's characters are well rounded enough to appeal to all ages, of either gender.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Milo}}'': Sure, it seems like a basic kids' show at first, but it manages to avert some {{cliche}}s seen on other children's shows and it's also fun to watch. Examples of cliches it averts are that George is not a BumblingDad, the parents never scold the kids but they have personalities, names and are not ParentExMachina's, older children (with the exception of Elise's brother) are nice to younger children, {{Aesop}}s happen but most of them are not {{Anvilicious}} and not every episode has one. And there's also no sexism (except in episodes that teach ''against'' sexism.)

* The English translation (no idea about the original Japanese version) of ''VideoGame/BatenKaitosOrigins'' is amazingly brilliant. Not only is the dialogue very well written, the story's self-aware nature comes as a pleasant surprise. Then again, it was translated by Nintendo, who have a bit more money to spend on this sort of thing than BandaiNamcoEntertainment did for the first game, but still at times it's hard to believe that both games come from the same series.

* While ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' has a lot of flaws (something that I went over in a review) one thing that is so right about it is its storyline. It was arguably my favorite fantasy story since ''PansLabyrinth''. The excellent cast of characters, [[GreyAndGrayMorality the grey morality]] with every character and faction having enormous flaws, it was about as compelling of a fantasy story as I could ask for and it allowed me to overlook the flaws that it had.

* WarrenEllis is one of the [[CrowningMomentOfFunny funniest]] and most [[CrazyAwesome imaginative]] writers today. His tried and tested approach to writing involves getting his hands on an already popular concept, [[RefugeInAudacity injecting it in]] [[EyeScream the retinas]] with bizarre technologies, hilarious dialogue, surreal settings and then [[UpToEleven turning the whole thing up to 11]] makes him a writer to definitely look out for. Case in point: ComicBook/{{Transmetropolitan}}, ComicBook/{{Nextwave}} and the [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague JLU]] episode "Dark Heart."

* The beautiful, refreshing lack of SiblingRivalry tropes in ''TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan''. Think about it-ten children, all with one main personality trait, in a show that's more about action than character. It could have gone wrong in so many ways, and yet look what we've got. TomboyAndGirlyGirl sisters who aren't constantly at odds with each other, altercations that ''don't'' escalate into resentment and dysfunction, the kids care more about solving the cases and working together than their differences. Makes me smile just ''typing'' about it.
