Top five animated features
Hi All,

What are your top 5 favourite animated features? I have only recently acquired taste for animation, but I do know already that I like movies a lot more than series. Since I haven't seen all the classics yet, I think that the top 5 format of recommendation will be the best for me - and, hopefuly, somene else. So far, my own top 5 looks like this:

1. Porco Rosso
2. Akira
3. Spirited Away
4. Ninja Scrolls
5. Blood: the last vampire

Top tens will be appreciated, too, as well as specific recommendations :)

1. Spirited Away (Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi)
2. Princess Mononoke
3. Akira
4. Perfect Blue
5. Ghost in the Shell

Well, I'm not really sure about the fifth one. I mean, it was entertaining and all, but it didn't really make much sense until I had watched it about five times. And the ending just sucked.

1) End of Evangelion
2) Perfect Blue
3) Angel's Egg
4) Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
5) Ghost in the Shell

top-5 list
hmm, my personal reccomendation (sorry if my english isnt too good, its almost a second language now...) is just watch everything you can, dont worry about other peoples list - just watch everything you can get your grubby paws on... :D of course, there are a few good ideas in the other lists...

anyway, since you asked for a top-10 list, i feel obliged to give you one (in no particular order) -

jin-roh: the wolf brigade
iria-zeiram the animation
my neighbour totoro
wings of honneamise
the early gandam movies (before gandam wing - although endless waltz was decent)
patlabor 1+2
m.d. geist
princess mononoke

i guess that counts as 10, couldnt think of any more at the moment - titles are too long... usually, ive found, the more obscure the movie is (at least in the west), the better it is - i dont know why...

or, perhaps better advice - watch everything miyazaki hayao and early gandam have to offer, plus some oshii mamuro and other old stuff thrown in for good measure... :)

p.s. - oh, yeah, xterm is incredibly right...

|somenight, you will all know, and fear my name. by then, however, it will be too late. - nuriel "zedore" xavier|

1) Spirited Away
2) Laputa Castle in the Sky
3) Nausicaa Valley of the Wind
4) Black Cauldron
5) Fantasia
6) Grave of the Fireflies
7) Lupin III Dark Order of Assassination
8) Lupin III In Memory of Walther P-38
9) Princess Mononoke
10) Hell Teacher Nube

Anything by Miyazaki is well worth watching.
