I’ve recently stumbled upon a website “Anime Movie Guide”, the owner, whoever he/she is, made a list of “the best and only the best anime movies”. Here is the link.
I really like the list they have made. Too bad they didn’t include Yoshiaki Kawajiri’s movies, especially Vampire Hunter D. Thinking of the other famous ones that aren’t there I would name Angel’s Egg (haven’t seen it yet), Redline, Macross: Do You Remember Love, Barefoot Gen (have not yet seen this one either). But I mostly am happy with the list in terms of completeness.
I think there are a few movies that don’t need to be on the list. Like movie versions of TV series, namely Madoka Magika movies and Evangelion remakes. I understand that you can watch Evangelion: 1.0 on its own, so it is just as good a movie as anything else. But you can’t watch Evangelion: 2.0 on its own, you need to see the first movie first, and that starts to blend the boundary between a movie and a series… anyway, it is not too big of a deal.
They also have an OVA guide, but it’s very incomplete at the moment. Still, there are a few interesting suggestions there =)
That’s it from me, see you next time ^_^/
