Essential Anime Films

"riccardinho"
 
Grave of Fireflies [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Grave of Fireflies [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"The greatest anime film of all time, no argument. A harrowing masterpiece on a level similar to Schindler's List, but showing the effects of war on two innocent children. Truly stunning."
Laputa - Castle In The Sky [DVD]
Laputa - Castle In The Sky [DVD]
"My favourite animť film of all time, Castle in the Sky (aka. Laputa) is a breathtaking mix of escapist adventure, stunning animation and awesome music.  One of the best family films available."
Neon Genesis Evangelion - The End Of Evangelion [2002] [DVD]
Neon Genesis Evangelion - The End Of Evangelion [2002] [DVD]
"Best if you have seen some or all of the series, the End of Evangelion is one of the most startling films you will see. Shocking, harrowing, confusing but beautiful to watch and wonderfully executed."
Kiki's Delivery Service [DVD]
Kiki's Delivery Service [DVD]
"Truly uplifting and endlessly rewatchable, Kikiís Delivery Service is guaranteed to leave even the most cynical viewer grinning from ear to ear by the end.  Awesome family entertainment."
Spirited Away [DVD]
Spirited Away [DVD]
"A worthy Oscar winner, Spirited Away manages to capture the surrealism of Alice in Wonderland and imbue it with real heart and power, managing to get its message across without ever being patronising."
Akira - The Ultimate Collection [1991] [DVD]
Akira - The Ultimate Collection [1991] [DVD]
"I know Akira always turns up in these lists but thereís a reason for that. Itís still fresh, itís still a superb piece of animation, and itís still great sci-fi. The film is a must have."
Urusei Yatsura 2 [DVD] [US Import] [NTSC]
Urusei Yatsura 2 [DVD] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Not available in the UK, this is probably the best of the Urusei Yatsura films. Surreal, dark but still funny and also doing a Groundhog Day scenario several years prior to the US filmÖ"
Patlabor 1 And 2 [1989] [DVD]
Patlabor 1 And 2 [1989] [DVD]
"Classic mix of police drama and giant robots!  The plots are complex and involving and the mechs are refreshingly treated as tools of the trade and nothing more, with the story taking centre stage."
Perfect Blue [1999] [DVD]
Perfect Blue [1999] [DVD]
"Probably the only anime psychological horror available in the UK, Perfect Blue uses unsettling music and some confusing animation to really draw you in to the splintered mind of the main character."
The Castle Of Cagliostro [1980] [DVD]
The Castle Of Cagliostro [1980] [DVD]
"Excellent adventure film recalling classic heist movies such as The Maltese Falcon.  Hugely entertaining with great action sequences and humour, and wonderful set pieces.  Well worth buying."
