And 'Kimba' was the first Anime series filmed in COLOR!!! while the original 'Astro Boy' was Black & White, so 'Kimba' must be post-Astro Boy
    It was probably the manga I had in mind.

    I would have to agree with both of you on this matter as well

    Leo (Kimba) isn't on the list. While he was very popular in the US and got quite a bit of attention post-Lion King he's virtually unknown to Japanese who weren't alive in the era he was on television. He's most well-known with young Japanese as the mascot for the Seibu Lions baseball team. With only a 3 volume manga series and no availability on DVD: Leo tends to be stuffed into the corner with Unico as a "cute mascot character" from a comic for small children. Tezuka's other series' have proved to have quite a bit more staying power: Black Jack, Ribon no Kishi (the first shoujo and possibly the first tv anime produced in color ~ though it aired after a number of others), Pheonix, and Adolf are all still widely read and reguarded as classics. Black Jack is by far the most famous (though Tetsuwon Atom was more "groundbreaking").

    Starblazers (Yamato) isn't on the list either... though plenty of people will argue that it deserves to be. A similar series, however, is.

    More hints:

    1966 - Mahou Tsukai Sally (guessed)

    1974 - Alps no Shoujo Heidi (guessed)

    1977 - Ginga Tetsudou 999 (guessed)

    1988 - Tonari no Totoro (guessed)

    1979 - Kidou senshi Gundam (guessed)

    1995 - EVA (guessed)

    2003 - Hagane no Renkinjutsushi (guessed)

    2005 - children's

    So I wonder what that 1977 SciFi series then, as both 'Space Pirate Captain Harlock' and 'Galaxy Express 999' are both 1978 series...

    And the 1981 mecha series can neither be the original 'Mobil Suit Gundam' (1979) (unless its the 1981 Movie adaptation of the TV series) nor 'Macross' (1982)

    Though I wonder if the 1974 series is 'Heidi, Girl of the Alps' (Alps no Shoujo Heidi)
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    This is a list of most influential anime AND manga :P If the manga came first, that date comes first too (I've listed the first date in the description, not necesarily the anime air-date).

    That's a 2nd mixed up date for me (1981 is indeed the film and 1979 the series) and three right answers for you.

    1988- movie
    Thats Akira isn't? Its either that or Grave of the Fireflies. But I'm going to stick with Akira.

    I wanted to know the 1966
    So I looked around and found

    Sally, the Witch
    Mah& - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I have never heard of this before.

    Sally, the Witch
    You are correct, sir. 1966 = Mahou Tsukai Sally, the first Magical Girl anime.
