Best anime Movies?

Post by Sacha » Wed Feb 01, 2006 10:01 am

A while ago I decided for myself to stop collecting Anime-series and concentrate more on anime-movies.

Now I was wandering what is the best anime movie you have seen?

My top 5 is:

1. Nausicaa and the valley of wind
2. Akira
3. Venus wars
4. Princess Mononoke
5. How's moving castle

I know.. 3 Ghibli movies in my top 5, but thei're just so damn good!!

I should really watch evangelion, too see if it's as complicated as people say.
Then again, maybe people are just dumb

Top Five:

1. Spirited Away
2. Tonari no Totoro
3. Laputa; Castle in the Sky
4. Full Metal Alchemist: the conqueror of Shambala
5. Metropolis

2. neon genisis evangelion
3. Nausicaa
4. Akira
5. Appleseed (2004)

Though it varies from time to time.

1) The Grave of the Fireflies
2) Akira
3) Vampire Hunter D *it's a tie between both Vampire Hunter D movies*
4) Mononoke Hime
5) My Neighbor Totoro

Wow, I'm noticing that most of these are Miyazaki films, but who's complaining? The guy and his crew are fantastic story tellers and animators!

I'd have to add one more movie to that which I just saw two mornings ago. Entertained the heck out of me.. the Prince of Tennis movie! X3 They went SERIOUSLY over the top with the Seigaku players signature moves. Right down to the over the top tennis match between Ryoma and Ryoga at the end!

It was way too much fun. X3

why do people think akira is so good? I've watched it three times know, and I'm not really a fan, it didn't give me something new (felt like the story was done before just in another way) and there's wasn't enough spectacular action to make up for the lack of an interesting storyline.

the animatrix probably doesn't count as a movie, because it's just different scenes in different drawing styles, but I did like it.

fullmetal alchemist the movie was awesome, too bad the subs where screwed up for like 1/7th of the movie.

ghost in the shell 1 and 2...the first one was decent, a bit entertaining, but it didn't bring me somethingnew either, graphical 2 was better but I have a version with no subs, so I can't even make a judgement on it.

and I have yet to watch spirited away, can't find a downloadable version with subs...

and too dynastysat, when you're watching bleach, stop at epidode 60 or so, it really goes downhill from there and storywise , you won't miss a thing, I promise...I'm gonna start watching bleach again when the story gets better (I'll know when my friends tell me, they're bleach fanatics)

Because you probably didn't get the underlying themes. That, or didn't find them interesting.

1. Jin-Roh
2. Akira
3. Ghost in the Shell 1&2
4. Princess Mononoke (simple, but good)

I dunno on the others.

where anime movies are concerned, miyazaki's always comes first :roll:

for me, 'The girl who leapt through time' beats all.

For me, of course Miyazaki's stuff is top. Other movies I really like:

--> Cowboy Bebop
--> Initial D 3rd Stage
--> Bleach: Memories of Nobody
--> Naruto Shippuuden

I also like Disney movies. Although they're not anime, they're great.

Anime movies that I want to see:

--> Lupin III: Green vs. Red
--> Naruto Shippuuden: Bond
--> 崖の上のポニョ (The Cliff-top's Ponyo)

I'm sure there are more, but I've been pretty behind on what's been coming out due to work. Probably be hitting up the DVD rental place quite a bit since summer break has now started. ^_^

I like Miyazaki's movies, don't get me wrong, but I don't think they're amazing. All of you are acting like fanboys (and girls) :P

I've got to say, Akira is also pretty mediocre at best as well.

I guess I'm a little biased as I prefer Manga over anime and for that reason, I also don't think I could name my favourite 5 anime movies.

My favourite Miyazaki movie is Princess Mononoke though.
