I'm surprised the Evangelion movies are so far down. They are my ultimate favorites. And what about Hotarubi no Mori e? That's a popular short film that literally made me cry. It should have been on here.

Yeah miyazaki works are all great and studio ghibli.. but no one here recommends 5 cm per second! Well I dont recommend it either.. cause it will break your heart..

anonymous on February 07, 2013:

@movies2k: Cartoons are shitty art done by pot heads and drug addicts that couldn't land a real job. Anime is the best artists creating a true story with no bullshit

@iepurashul: Film z watch it b___

iepurashul on January 15, 2013:

Why even make a list if its the same movies on everyone elses list? ok we get it, they are good movies but there are so many other ones people wanna hear about instead of the same ones over.

anonymous on November 14, 2012:

I would have included Digimon The Movie

anonymous on October 20, 2012:

If you ever get a chance, look up the movie "Green Legend Ran". It was one of my favorites growing up, but it's been a while since I've seen it.

bleu-vert on October 20, 2012:

huh, I am lucky your poll is not about pick your favorite out of them. There are SO many works of art in your list, and Hayao Myiazaki is simply incredible.

anonymous on October 19, 2012:

@RobbieM LM: I totally agree :)

anonymous on October 09, 2012:

Ghost in the Shell is the best anime movie ever.

anonymous on August 30, 2012:

@anonymous: well apparently there is a sequel to 5 centimetres per second. In case u want to look into it.

anonymous on August 21, 2012:

I've seen like 9 of the movies here and they were all amazing and interesting....the only problem is that it is sooo hard to find these movies subbed..I don't like dubbed(besides ponyo, spirited away, and howl's moving castle) because if it's not done right, their mouth keeps moving but the words stop....I like the original voices...it just sounds natural and I get more pulled into it...but I'm going to watch these movies :)

anonymous on August 20, 2012:

@brobi338: Naruto has worst movies I have ever seen. Actually I was surprised to see One Piece movie 10 there, but it's canon so people are bound to like it.

TwistedWiseman on August 16, 2012:

Akira, Princess Mononoke, My neighbor Totoro, good stuff :)

RobbieM LM on August 15, 2012:

Grave of the Fireflies needs to be higher. It is more emotionally draining than most live-action movies and takes a devastating toll on your soul and way of thinking

anonymous on August 12, 2012:

I love every second of these movies T^T

ArifWidodo on August 12, 2012:

Summer Wars!!!!

Yeahhhhhh!!!!

CalobrenaOmai on August 08, 2012:

I've seen majority of the movies that are on this list; none of the ones I've seen disappointed me, very please. I'm surprised R.O.D isn't on the list; that's an amazing movie as well.

russianandeuro on August 07, 2012:

I've seen Spirited Away and I can say that it is nicely done.

plasterbrain on July 26, 2012:

I heard Perfect Blue was good; would anyone recommend it?

kylie123101 on July 26, 2012:

kylie123101 on July 26, 2012:

anime is nice plus the air master movie rocks

anonymous on July 26, 2012:

Castle in the sky is a good one! but i really liked princess mononoke! :)

kinsy25 on July 13, 2012:

Love the girl who leapt through time and Spirited away, but Evangelion 2.0 definately gets my vote!

Andrew Po (author) on July 10, 2012:

@movies2k: Yes, cartoons from Japan basically.

anonymous on July 09, 2012:

What about 8 Man!?

anonymous on July 04, 2012:

@anonymous: No one asked your opinion, dude. you wanna make your own list? DO IT. I'm sure it will be different than this one, and someone will post on your list and say "this list sucks more than i can take" or some dumb shit like that. I think it's a pretty damn good list. And no one is going to ask you to post your top 100. You think your "top 100" is so special? then post it and stop complaining.

movies2k on July 04, 2012:

Anime movies I don't understand what they are. Someone draw them? You mean to say they are cartoons right? Is it the same thing as cartoons?

Onemargaret LM on July 03, 2012:

Anything by Hayao Miyazaki is wonderful!

Onemargaret LM on July 03, 2012:

I agree totally! "Spririted Away" is the best. My daughter made me watch it when it first came out and I still love it!

anonymous on July 02, 2012:

@anonymous: soo true

cherak9 on July 02, 2012:

The Cat Returns should be higher!!

kindoak on June 16, 2012:

Nice list! I have seen 4 of them, many I didn't know about.

anonymous on June 14, 2012:

one of the best anime movies ive ever seen is Mardock Scramble: The first compression! very rude though!!

anonymous on June 14, 2012:

@anonymous: I am preeeeeeetty sure that Eden of the East movie is just a sequel of the TV series. And made after the series was aired.

anonymous on June 13, 2012:

omg i love howls moving castle is so cute

giftedwizard on June 08, 2012:

check out my squidoo and i tell you a little secert

anonymous on June 07, 2012:

yeahhh!! Howl's moving castle and spirited away is the best...

anonymous on June 06, 2012:

In my opinion Howl's moving castle SUCKED!

anonymous on June 01, 2012:

No King of Thon? No Eden of the East movie that spawned the TV series? No Final Fantasy VII; Spirits within or FFVII: Advent Children? No Secret World of Arriertty. This list sucks more than I can take. You should ask me to post my top 100.

christina-watson-73 on May 30, 2012:

Hayao Miyazaki is the best

Margaret Schindel from Massachusetts on May 22, 2012:

I'm a HUGE Miyazaki fan!

anonymous on May 21, 2012:

The Iron Giant

FallenAngel 483 on May 17, 2012:

Akira is my favourite but there are some here I haven't seen yet.

anonymous on May 17, 2012:

Im sorry but 5 cent. per seconds was the worst movie i ever saw. I was dissapointed. I just expected more from it

anonymous on May 16, 2012:

Vexille: 2077 Isolation of Japan. My pic to at least be on the list. I would recommend this movie to anyone. Visually impressive and intriguing.

anonymous on May 07, 2012:

Ninja Scroll should be a lot higher IMO.

anonymous on May 05, 2012:

Why is Return of the Cat higher than Whisper of the Heart? Whisper of the Heart is an amazing movie. Just because people aren't fighting 24-7 in it doesn't mean it's not good. It's poignant and beautiful.

anonymous on May 03, 2012:

Noooooo....where's Laputa: Castle in the sky???

anonymous on April 22, 2012:

Love Princess Mononoke

anonymous on April 21, 2012:

Summer Wars!

norman-harrison on April 20, 2012:

Have to agree with all the Miyazaki films being near the top. He's one of my favorite filmmakers.

anonymous on April 20, 2012:

anonymous on April 20, 2012:

Ouran Highschool Host club!!!!!!!

anonymous on April 08, 2012:

@anonymous: I feel the same way. I was affected so much mostly because I also tend to second-guess myself and regret things. So I kept thinking how it could have ended happily if they made that extra step to keep in touch.

brobi338 on March 29, 2012:

were is naruto!

MindPowerProofs1 on March 23, 2012:

Nice :)

anonymous on March 21, 2012:

@anonymous: Wholeheartedly agree. Gut-wrenchingly painful. Might as well have stabbed my heart out and left it to bleed on the floor.

I hate it so much because I love it. Gah.

anonymous on March 17, 2012:

Nice list. I think i've seen all of the top 10 listed, as well as some of the others. BUT no End of Evangelion! *rage*

i wish tales of the earthsea had been added but otherwise your list is definitely great. I agree with them all and I also have found other anime movies to watch-- I'm off to watch Paprika now
