Top 10 Best Anime Movies
The Top Ten
My favorite animated movie ever, every time I watch it again I cry every time and get chills.
This is hands down one of my favorites anime movies that I ever seen. - tony222
This is not just a movie it is a masterpiece and I can't tell what effect this movie had on me after I finished it. must watch.
This Is The Best Anime Movie I Have Ever Seen. Everything Is Awesome Especially The Background Music
How is this in second place. This is legendary anime that cannot be compared with other.
Emotions in anime character is best to watch number 1 soundtrack
I will never get tired of watching this movie, it's just so nice... And the ending kept me crying as it is just too touching... The best movie I have ever watched!
At first, I feel not watching this anime until Disney have televise it. It's a masterpiece full of symbolism and great character development for our mc. Every scene is fully detailed or animated which the unexpected for an anime which have been created hand drawn. that's real dedication right there by the creator. No anime movies comes close in terms of storyline, details, character progression and hard work to this one.
No film has a sense of greatness and scope like Akira does. IT GETS BETTER WITH EACH VIEWING.
For a 1988 film, it took 7 animation companies and 10 years to make the visuals...honestly, I have never seen any movie come close to the smoothness of Akira. Most of it is animated at 24fps.
Akira was the first movie to pre-record the voices of the actors, and then lip-sync the mouths of the characters (which is why you should never watch Akira with dub). All the characters keep moving all the time on screen, and there is never a dull moment.
Also, this was many people's first step into the world of anime, and it showed everyone that cartoons could be enjoyed by adults too.
People complain about it's confusing plot...they don't realise that Akira was never aiming to deliver a good story.
Akira is a visual treat for the eyes, not to mention the Dolby Atmos audio in which it was recorded sounds amazing.
Do yourself a favour and go check out Akira 720p ...more
An Anime film like no other. Stunning. The motorcycle battles are amongst the most exciting action sequences ever created. My only complaint is with the English voice acting.
Akira started the Anime craze in America. In the late 80's early 90's you could only get this Anime from infomercials and 1-800 #'s. First introduces as this new cutting edge style of Animation fresh from Japan and it was not marketed to children but to Adults. That is the problem with a pole like this being a matter of opinion and open to children not old enough to remember where it really began. Take it from me, if you have not Seen Akira at least once, you have no room to claim any expertise in Anime or it becoming relevant outside of Japan. However, here I will also note that although Akira started the Anime craze in a America, it was by no means the first Anime nor the First Anime to come out in America. Both of those distinctions actually go to AstroBoy. - Mystsofvoid
Well, Akira wasn't really the first anime, but it's definitely the forefather of modern anime. - MKBeast
The animation in this movie is OUTSTANDING. I felt mesmerised watching this movie for the first time, one of the best anime experiences. - MilesRS777
It's the most ambitious, emotional, and quite frankly best film that I've ever seen. Watch it and be happy with what you have.
A must watch. The rice ball scene literally broke my heart. This is the best anime movie I've ever seen.
"Have a riceball niichan! "
Paused the movie and cried for 5 min straight
The story is so good and emocional, even makes you cry
Please watch it -
I love this film. I consider it the greatest anime movie ever. It has an awesome adventure, an extremely romantic (but in no way sappy) love story, a war between three factions, and an enormous battle. It has everything. I love this film and I have now seen it around 30 times. It gets to me every time. I fall in love with the characters again every time I see it, I experience the story as if I have never heard it (though I have memorized the script and the scenes), and get depressed for a few days every time I see it (every few months) thinking about it. I have never seen another movie so powerful. Movies are supposed to move you in some profound way, and this film definitely does so. I think that this deserves top spot. I've seen Spirited Away a few times and I think that it is overrated. Many people who voted for it have probably never seen Princess Mononoke. Personally, I find Spirited Away to be a bit more childish that Princess Mononoke, but that is because Miyazaki's films are ...more - Mightyena5875345
I know you're thinking this:
But this movie should be number one.
AND THIS IS A MIYAZAKI FILM!
Who gives a crap? This movie is one of his best, but is still not for families, which is his usual path. It's VERY bloody, with violence and nudity. THAT is why it is number 8. - BronySyndrome
Hayao Miyazaki's masterpiece. It is more than a good anime film, but one of the greatest films ever made. The animation is beautiful and the characters you will never forget.
Miyazaki movie and is enough in itself
I love it! it's a bit boring and childish at first, but it gets better and better after they meet Totoro!
Only anime movie I saw as a kid and it is still one of my favorite movies. I am into details and stuff with animation and it blows me away every time. - mikeford
Just watched this movie yesterday. I started crying my eyes out when it ended. This was an adorable, funny, and magical ride that I didn't ever want to get off. - Absolite
Beautiful detail, comedy, and adventure. Another Miyazaki film that anyone will enjoy. - BronySyndrome
It's Epic, It's Awesome, It's Adventurous, I had no idea but I will make a web series spinoff of this film, even though my sister calls this film a CRINGE but do not tell anyone except your friend at School (Only if you are in Indonesia) that I suspect a beautiful character and she's a girl... Clever enough? Well she's none other than Sophie. Shooked enough? (Even though my mum is bothering me) well I guess I really want to make a fan-made animated series about her in a modern world, Imagine That.
I watched this first when I was five years old, and since then watched it every day, until my mother "accidentally" deleted it from the planner.
I cried for hours because we couldn't get it back, and so my mother had to purchase it from the Internet.
Seriously an amazing movie... I don't know what it is... It just makes your heart swell.
The plot is amazing, as well as the characters. I especially love how the main character is somehow beautiful and still finds true love, despite being turned into an ugly old lady.
This movie just feels like home to me.
These dudes are pointless. how come this movie is in number 7?!
I ADORE THIS MOVIE! I have probably seen this movie twenty times or even more than that. The cast is amazing, the story is fascinating and intriguing, and the characters are so well done! And lets not forget the beautiful imagery throughout the film and the wonderful excitement of magic used! I think I actually own two copies of this movie! I hope anyone who reads this list will watch this wonderful, amazing, perfect adventure!
This coming from a guy who normally only watches action anime I gotta say I love this movie a lot it is easily the best anime movie ever and prolly one of the best movies ever, I loved the way he changed from being a bully and prolly the coolest guy In school to the guy no one talks to then becoming a normal guy the only part that wasn't the best was how they never ended up dating like we all know they are going to right after but still I wish at the end they would of done something better than teach me how to live mabey like be the reason I want to live or something like that well who knows mabey they did and the dub sucked and also I still don't understand why she tried to kill herself like before he came back I would understand but he seemed to make her want to live why did she decide to kill herself after meeting him and being happy I don't know its just weird no one but her family was happy with her for 18 years she meets him is finally happy and then she decides to kill herself ...more
This movie made me think about how people never change, yet I think it adds to the fact of human nature and how flawed we are. Hands down a must see, I would recommend to the drama/romantic genre of people
THE BEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME. IT TACKLES DEPRESSION, BULLYING, FRIENDSHIPS, LOVE, SUICIDE, FAMILY. A LOT! I LOVE THIS MOVIE SO MUCH
My favourite movie of all time. Should be number 1. Kimi no nawa might have better animation and fantasy than this, but no other storyline has touched my heart so close. It's so real, painful and heartwarming at the same time. Not to mention an amazing soundtrack too.
Confusing as it may be, I absolutely believe it deserves a higher nod. It does an excellent job of leaving the audience with hope that humanity can eventually come to understand each other, to lower our mental walls and truly connect. Even after the horrific bloodbath that is the first half. - NyxAvatar
8th place is not bad at all, but I think it should be ranked much higher!
This ending is just EPIC "EINS, ZWEI, DREI! "
Greatest piece of art ever created in the history of mankind!
This film deserves to be in the top 5 at least. One of the most influential films of all time. The underlying themes are so good and you need to watch it several times to fully grasp its meaning. One of my favorite anime films for sure.
Definitely a top 5. Don't know what it's doing this far down the list.
12? Are you kidding me? Ghost in the Shell is possibly the best aniem movie ever made. This should be at least up there with Akira, Perfect Blue and Miyazaki's stuff.
I can't realise why this movie is so low on this list I mean you did not put it not in first top 5?!?! while some stupid movies put above it.
I love sakura story.its really sad
Heartwarming and beautiful
It’s a pretty cute classic.
I truly love this.
I dunno if the sub was better but the dub made me cry
I love this
It touches me emotionally 😭, so glad I was able to watch this
I love this movie so much! I think it needs more love, the story was such an adventure, it was as if I had my own wolf child. And, the ending was sad but happy at the same time!
I love this movie go watch it. It has great characters, and a great plot, which revolves around a young mother, Hana, who has kids with a werewolf who dies. Now the completely human Hana is forced to deal with Ame, a cowardly, frail boy at first, but evolving into a more brave and strong version later on, hating who he is and not having any social skills, or wanting to run away and protect the mountain that because... Well, I won't spoil that. And Yuki, a spitfire of a girl constantly getting in trouble at the beginning, and just wanting to be normal and embracing being human at the end, having to choose: Wolves or people?
It was just such a beautiful movie. Everyone should watch this at least once.
Ame became an ass at the end, though. What kind of kid doesn't say goodbye to his mom after all she's done for you?!
Such a mind-bending, tense thriller. One of the best out there, even. With a relatable protagonist, well-done animation, intense scenes of sexual and physical violence, disturbing ideas, a fantastic soundtrack, and a genuinely engaging plot, Perfect Blue is possibly Satoshi Kon's best film. And it's his first. - regularshowman
People who've actually understanded the true psychological und symbolic meaning of this masterpiece won't deny that this is one of the best pieces of art ever created.
His power is maximum.
A grt combo of fight scenes with epic background music. A must watch for all dbz fans, n so for the others if u r into action/anime fights.
I absolutely love this anime movie it so cute I have watched it just about a million times its great for little kids and older people who are still into fantasy and fairy tales its one of the cutes little movies EVER!
Just watched it! It's so beautiful, with the characters and the story! I enjoyed it a lot. This movie is so cute! Ponyo is a great movie! You should check it out!
I LOVE THIS MOVIE! WATCHED IT ABOUT A THOUSAND TIMES I have to say it is a cute adorable film that will warm hearts please watch it
It’s a great movie a lot of people will say it’s about a little fish with powers growing up to be independent but on the journey ponyo meets a boy and on that journey they become best friends
Best pokemon movie and anime movie ever
One of my favorite anime in my whole life
Truly the best anime movie ever created.
Oh no Pokémon heroes is the REAL answer
Love it... Genre of it"s on... Very underrated here... Animation, the characters, style and the music... Mish-mash of everything Sci-fi, spaghetti western, samurai films... Tarantino anime so to speak...
I voted for this, this is a masterpiece with good story and a famous theme song - wren6
My second favorite my first is spirited away
Might be the best anime movie I've ever seen
I just recently saw this, and it's great. - CrypticMemory
I love the Akatsuki members, and I much appreciated this alternate reality, where they got to be protagonists.
Naruto road to a ninja is amazing it made me cry I never cry not in original movies but this movie is my favourite
16? I even cried watching this movie
I love road to ninja Rock Lee is so crazy!
I have watched this show since as long as I can remember I have watched a lot of Studio Ghibili movies and this is one of them I like
i'm 14 right know 10/29/19 and I love anime in jeneral
This is a very interesting movie. The plot is unique and the writing is spot on. Sure, the plot and lore behind the movie can be very confusing at times, and the main character, Nausicaa, can get on my nerves at times. But it's still a great film. Makes me want to see more movies by these people.
Beautiful score, very touching at times. Great characters and a lovely but of sci-fi. Don't forget this is a very old film and has aged beautifully.
Oh this film was just amazing & heart touching. Can't understand why it has taken a low rank.
It was just perfect
Funny that it is ranked so low yet it remains the favourite film of Makoto Shinkai for so many; definitely up there with Your Name and definitely a cut above 5 Centimeters Per Second.
This is the film that made Makoto Shinkai known for beauty.
This is better than the broly movie - ikerevievs
Best movie of all time
Very good. better then other dbz movies
Could have been a lot better no should have been a lot better
Gives you aim in life
It's a great story anyway, but this Movie tops everything. I's length is nearly 3 hours but every single Moment, every single situation is made up so lovingly. There is not a single scene which could be considered as boring. In my opinion this is the best Anime Movie I've ever seen.
This movie is so amazing because of the music the animation, the story, but most of all kyon's choice monologue I get goosebumps
I love this movie and it gives the the series so much more of a compete feeling!
I love the novel so I love the movie... I wonder how haruhis hot pot taste like... Laugh out loud. Kyon x Haruhi forever! Go haruhi! You are the best anime, movie, concert, light novel, manga, game etc. Forever!
A hidden gem that I wish I found sooner. The sword fights and animation is fantastic. And the premise for this movie is simple and relatable and character development is great; making you yearn for the main protagonist to be victorious.
One of the greatest sword fights ever anime or live.
Best movie with great sword fighting...
Only 5o? This is a good anime, ending was alright but left you thinking. Good battles, good moments, and most of all good vibes.
Absolutely amazing anime movie, you must watch it and you will understand - OreSama
It’s pretty good, not gonna lie. I wish I saw more of the other girl though.
It's one of the most cinematic movies ever created, the visuals are out-of-this-world. It is a classic contemporary portrayal of loss, distance and unrequited love with lots of symbolism that is absolutely heart-wrenching. If you're looking for something truly beautiful, realistic and heartbreaking, you should definitely watch 5 Centimeters Per Second!
One of the true great anime movies. Blending beautiful animation with realistic storytelling and drama, Five Centimeters Per Second is the template for which all slice of life anime dated after 2007 take after. It's not just my favorite anime movie, it's one of my favorite movies period.
One of the best anime movies I have ever seen... I absolutely loves it. I really think it should have been higher but who am I?!?
When I first heard about this movie I had no idea what it was but I decided to watch and straight away I loved it.
My favorite anime movie ever and I watched 5 out of ten of the movies in the top ten list
AMAZING MOVIE! Fun to watch and enjoy with the family.
One of the most intense anime movies I've seen - fuadmondeo
An elegant story beautifully drawn and stands the test of time.
Ninja scroll should be number one. The art and plot alone is enough.
Ninja Scroll is at least as good as Akira. Jubei is literally a legendary warrior, and now he's a classic.
I love this anime
In nice and sad happy angry but I really like it and I think in needs new chacters an
I ship nastu and lucy.
One of my most favorite anime movie ever, not to mention fairy tail is my favoraite anime of all time.
Natsu x lucy
BOI THIS MOVIE IS COOL
Trippy, but cool <3 - Lollipopz
THIS IS BETTER THEN THE BROLY MOVIE! - iSym
Friendship, love, time all in one
It teaches you to make the most of every moment, loved it
I cried when I saw it
Best movie ever
Loved it loved it loved it! Not sure why it's rated r though. Princess mononoke was pg13 and had way more gore.
This is my first ghibli film, probably my favorite too
Very underrated film - jameshoward
I love this movie
I don't know why this movie isn't in the top, this movie is one of the best movies is just amazing and so awesome
Beautiful movie and beautiful story.
Beast movie dudets :3
This was good but the sequel bloodlust was 10 times better! Wish I could find bloodlust because it's my favorite anime movie next to akira.
Dude janemba had no chance against gogeta but good enough to beat Goku super saiyan 3 which was way better than Goku vs Frieza
AWESOME probably the best fusion character ever way better than gotenks but vegito is better than both of them combined
It's the best movie ever this list stinks
This is my most hyped Naruto movie to watch.
