Greatest Japanese Animation Movies of All Time


The Top TenXW

1Spirited Away

I remember when I lived in Japan and would read the books... (Military family) I watched this at a young age loved it then and love it now.

This is the single movie that even Disney would give its utmost respect.

My favorite movie from ghibli Studios, right next to Tototo for me. - Haudeare1944

5The Secret World of Arrietty
6Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
7Princess Mononoke
