Some favorite anime scenes.

Some while back, there was a meme going around on Twitter where folks were listing off their top ten anime episodes.  I decided to make a full entry here at the Lounge instead, and somewhere along the line it morphed from favorite episodes into mostly favorite scenes.  So it goes I guess, once you start writing you never know where the Muse will lead you.
