Best Anime Films Thread

  • What are your best Anime Films?

    My personal List:
    5 Eureka Seven: Pocketfull Of Rainbow (Although It has flaws)
    4 Evangelion 2.22
    3 Howl's Moving Castle
    2 Nausica Of The Valley Of The Wind
    1 Akira

  • All Satoshi Kon films, all Mamoru Hosoda films, Princess Mononoke, Porco Rosso, Castle of Cagliostro, Castle in the Sky, Akira, Redline, Ninja Scroll, Sword of the Stranger, Space Adventure Cobra, Mystery of Mamo, and a few others I can't remember right off hand.

    Also, Mamoru Oshii is an over-rated director and all his films are boring as dirt. The only good Ghost in the Shell movie was Solid State Society, the one Kenji Kamiyama directed.

  • Solitary Movies

    Grave of the Fireflies
    Ninja scroll
    Perfect Blue
    Spirited Away

    Part of a Series:

    Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya
    Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Rebellion
    Steins;Gate Fuka Ryouiki no Deja Vu

  • Oh wait, I completely forgot the Cowboy Bebop movie, too.

  • @Firefly:

    Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Rebellion

    Aiya, I can't believe I forgot that one.

  • Just a few that have yet to be mentioned…

    The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
    Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Adolescence of Utena

  • I second the 'anything Mamoru Hosoda does' sentiment. He's yet to fail for me (though I've admittedly not seen his One Piece movie yet). I would also throw in Whisper of the Heart, which to me is easily the best thing Ghibli has ever done. Beyond that, hmm…oh! I've not seen a lot of Kon's work either I'll admit, but...Tokyo Godfathers. If you haven't seen it, you need to see it. Like, now.

    For show related movies, I'd definitely toss Fullmetal Alchemist: Conqueor of Shamballa, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, and the first Pokemon movie (that I still need to see subbed) out there. Oh, and Cowboy Bebop: The Movie too I suppose, as I enjoy it more than I do the show actually.
