Thanks for such an overwhelming response on my thread, never expected such a great response, really thanks.
Sorry to say but as the response is huge I can't reply to everyone out there, I am reading all the posts.
I think I should add more Animes to my list too, so here it goes:
1. One piece - best
2. Naruto - best
3. Death note - very nice anime, so much thinking
4. One punch man - exciting (specially the last episode of S1 and S2)
5. Attack on titan - one of the best
6. Jujutsu kaisen - manga is lit, anime will be great in upcoming seasons
7. Demon slayer - best animation
8. Hunter x Hunter - such a great anime
9. Chainsaw man - good
10. Spy x family - good
11. That time i got reincarnated as a slime - good
12. Tokyo ghoul - they ruined season 2
I don't have count of how many Anime's I have watched, list is huge and there are much more. Thanks everyone for your suggestions too, will definitely watch them when I get time (already have most of them in my watchlist as I have heard quite a lot about them like Full Metal Alchemist, My hero academia, bleach, initial D, etc. They all are in my watchlist and will watch them for sure).
The following BHPian Thanks Itachi_Uchiha for this useful post:
Watch full metal Alchemist first then watch full metal Alchemist brotherhood. They are essentially the same anime but watching FMA first will give you a much better context. FMA and FMA brotherhood have different endings and some details are different the reason being when FMA first aired the manga wasn't done (IIRC) but they had to end it. FMA brotherhood was aired when manga was done so it will feel much more complete but doesn't set up context properly because it assumes you have seen FMA.
Demon Slayer is another cool anime, the animation is top notch.
AOT should have a different ending compared to manga. Mappas has said they are giving it a different end but it definitely is a wild ride! Eren Yeager is definitely one of my favourite characters now.
Thanks for advice on FMA. And yes I also heard the news of AOT's ending being changed, well I also hope they change it.

Well if you want to enter the anime world then I advice that you should start with something small like one punch man or death note (they are small yet so good), then you should move on to a bit bigger ones like attack on titan, full metal alchemist, hunter x hunter, my hero academia, etc. You can also skip the 2nd suggested ones and directly move on to naruto and naruto shippuden, one piece, bleach, etc. I hope this suggestion help you.

But I absolutely love Jujutsu Kaisen - for the animation (Gojo's eyes OMG), the strong plot and the stronger characters (no damsels in distress here, sorry). Pretty sure it might enter my favourites list above if the creators maintain this standard.
And if Korean webcomics count here as well, I'm a huge Solo Leveling fan. The plot is meh, the characters are even meh-er, but what a sheer hallucinatory power trip that webcomic was!!
Great post, Gojo's eyes are truely amazing . Another Solo Leveling fan here, I have heard the Anime for solo leveling is coming out soon.

Well, you got to be kidding me!! Haven't watched Initial D, but on a car forum talking about anime. You just committed a blasphemy.
Just joking . But seriously, you have to give it a try. The first couple of seasons have some CGI (Computer-Generated-Imagery) in the animation but you'll get used to it pretty fast. The races are pretty sick and the show gives some detailed explanations about cars and driving.
Plus, you'll get a whole new appreciation for Eurobeat after watching this .
Yeah I know I am the odd one here (haven't even watched Initial D yet), but I ensure you that its in my watchlist and will definitely watch it at the earliest.

One small request: can you please also post the source where your favorites can be watched, it will help people discover great content.
Well, to be fully honest here, Nor do I have the subscriptions of all the ott platforms neither all the Anime's are available on those platforms. Most anime are there on crunchyroll and netflix but crunchyroll sometimes doesn't suit me (like it don't have all the languages, etc. Though I am absolutely fine with watching anime in Japanese audio with English subtitles but sometimes I like to watch English dub too)
And some animes are not available on these platforms too, so to watch my favorite Animes I always prefer Telegram, its the best method for me (I guess its unofficial method but I don't have any choice either) and there is also a website named ''zoro . to''(spacing it oddly because I don't want to give website links here cause I guess mods won't like it)(best for watching anime's online). These 2 are my methods of watching anime.

It's super rare to find someone who is a fan of Hayao Miyazaki in India. Kudos to you for mentioning some of my favourite movies.
I think this perception has to do with exposure to the beautiful world of Anime. Miyazaki is master of storytelling and his world building makes you appreciate the finer things in life and calm your mind. His works give immense respect to nature and are often known for strong female characters (Be it Satsuki and Mei in Totoro, or Princess Mononoke). I have converted my entire extended family to fans of Studio Ghibli with screenings of Totoro and Kikis delivery service.
That said, there are some Ghibli movies which literally challenge even the grown up audience. Movies like Grave of the fireflies which can make even adults tear up.
I can also assure that viewers like Mr. Narayan, Jeroen, Foxbat and Skanchan might enjoy the movie The wind rises which is about the creator of the Mitsubishi Zero (Jiro) fighter planes.
Makoto Shinkai also is equally gifted individual. Your name, 5 centimetres per second, weathering with you are so beautifully made that they ended up grossing all time highs.
If you do enjoy similar movies, Try Silent voice, The girl who leapt through time, Wolf Children.

Ghost in the Shell is a 1995 movie depicting a future. This is the same Cyberpunk genre as Akira but totally different. From my evaluation, Ghost in the Shell challenges more emotionally and intellectually than Akira.
Standalone complex is a series based on the same movie and same characters. The series is also a slow roast. The concept is unique. The characters are beautifully fleshed out and by the end of the series, you are really attached to the characters.
PS: I am sorry for going overboard.
