Greatest Japanese Animation Movies of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Spirited Away Spirited 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

Not really. This is more focused towards kids. One of Myazokis worst.

10 Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie

I loved seeing the Akatsuki members as heroes in this movie!

The Contenders

11 Cowboy Bebop: The Movie Cowboy Bebop: The Movie
12 Wolf Children Wolf Children

Such a beautiful story reminiscent of Miyazaki movies

13 Castle In the Sky Castle In the Sky

Castle in the Sky has to be one of my favorite Studio Ghibli film (as a die-hard Studio Ghibli fan) like how Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is my favorite Sonic the Hedgehog game. Do you want to know one major reason why? It's because both have similar elements (the titular "castle in the sky" is a simile to Sky Sanctuary Zone)! I give them all 10/10! - The Ultimate Daredevil (aka Kieran Glen Harris Stark)

Most of the movies are directed by hayao miyazaki including this movie.Hayao Miyazaki is the best animation director

14 Paprika Paprika
15 Howl's Moving Castle Howl's Moving Castle

This definitely deserves to be on the list. It is an amazing anime movie.

Loved this as much as spirited away. Should be number one

16 Evangelion 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance Evangelion 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance
17 Yugijoo de Movie
18 Sword of the Stranger Sword of the Stranger

It is a great action and adventure anime movie, a little like Ninja Scroll which is in the top ten

19 Samurai X - Trust and Betrayal Samurai X - Trust and Betrayal
20 Millennium Actress Millennium Actress
