Top 10 Best Anime Moviesloganruckmanman
The Top Ten
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!
I watched this with my friend just this year and it made me love anime. It might have been because it was so mysterious, or because I love the concept of the spirit world, but something about it just amazed me.
I've seen Spirited Away a few times and I think that it is overrated. The plot seems a little week at spots and the love story isn't very powerful. It did not leave such a mark as a few other animes, such as Princess Mononoke, did for me, but that is just my opinion. Many prefer the story of Spirited Away. I personally hate the ending... It seems anti-climactic to me. It has just been so hugely advertised and distributed in America that other anime films don't even stand a chance. - Mightyena5875345
I didn't enjoy this movie...V 20 Comments
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
In my opinion, is the greatest anime of all time. The animation is incredible, and completely hand drawn. It is filled with action, adventure (and quite frankly, a hell of a lot of language), and one scene that has always grossed me out: The scene where Tetsuo transforms into the blob thing. Did I mention that this movie ALSO started the anime fandom (Otaku) in America? You can't become an anime fan until you watch Akira. - BronySyndrome
This movie is so cool! It's violent, it has strong language, and EXCELLENT hand drawn animation.
Rated R.. - BronySyndrome
This one was literally voted best a in ever. This was the reason America embraced animeV 1 Comment
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!
Spirited Away is the most popular anime movie of all time.
Akira is the best anime movie of it's era.
Grave of the fire flies is the best emotional anti war anime of all time.
My personal favorite is wolf children.
But Howl's Moving Castle, is the best anime movie of all time. It's got a bigger universe than spirited away, a better written story and ending than akira and a much wider range of audience than grave of the fire flies. If I had to make a top 5 it would go like this...
1. howl's moving castle
2. spirited away
4. grave of the fire flies
5. princess mononoke
Oh Hayao Miyazaki, you've done it again. This film delivers adventure, action, and magic. A fun film. - BronySyndrome

ITS ONE OF THE BEST ANIME MOVIES YOU WILL EVER WATCH! - DeamonMyutsu
Must watch once. I guaranteed that this movie makes you cry.
So sad he lost so much and the imagery is beautifulV 7 Comments
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.V 1 Comment
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
Beautiful detail, comedy, and adventure. Another Miyazaki film that anyone will enjoy. - BronySyndrome
Such a great movie. This should be #1. I watched this as a child, and I still love it.
I love Totoro so much - TwilightKitsuneV 5 Comments
8th place is not bad at all, but I think it should be ranked much higher!
This ending is just EPIC "EINS, ZWEI, DREI! "
Mom is too blind!
She hears what she wants to hear!
It is just fantastic. - dagegen99V 1 Comment
This needs to be on the top. It's way more intriguing and 100 times more touching than spirited away. Don't know about all people here but this was the best anime movie I saw in 2016.
How could be this anime is not the number one? Excellent scoring, fantastic animation, and last but not least, the heart-pounding plot twist yet filled with a bit comedy to freshen up our mind while watching!
This should be number one, the events that happen are so sad and happy at the same time. Even watching it the 8th time feels like the second time. If you like anime, highly recommend you watch this.
How can this not be number one? Fantastic animation, great, great characters and a compelling, moving, utterly engrossing story. And as for the ending...wow!V 6 Comments
The best movies have I ever seenV 2 Comments
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?
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?!
I thought this movie was amazing! But it was so sad...
I LOVE this Movie Simply the bestV 3 Comments
When I saw this film I immediately fell in love! I am close to saying that it has climbed to my number one, it is in competition with Whisper of the Heart and Garden of Words for me! - SidneyHando
First anime movie I saw and it sparked my now insane passion. To all who it concerns, it is on Amazon prime on the video store
Best pokemon movie and anime movie ever
Truly the best anime movie ever created.
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.
Brilliant...just brilliant! Every bit of it is pure genius and beauty. The dialogues,the characters, the plot,ALL OF IT.A must-see for sci-fi fans! - Tia-Harribel
My second favorite my first is spirited away

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
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.
