We’re now 62 days into the 100 Day Anime Challenge. Today’s question is: What is your favorite Anime Movie? Well, to be honest, I haven’t seen nearly as many strictly Anime Movies as I have just Anime series. What’s more, most of the Anime Movie’s I’ve seen are Ghibli films, my favorites there being Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and Castle in the Sky. I did, however, get a chance recently to watch Your Name, by Makoto Shinkai.
With all the crapshooting going around about the supposed upcoming Hollywood adaptation of the film, I thought i’d highlight some of the things that made the show good. The first thing the show features is a lot about Japanese culture and society, in fact, it’s based heavily around it to make the actual concept of the show work. The haunting, ethereal art gives me chills every time I look at it, the lens flares and vivid colors are just astoundingly beautiful. The music, the voice acting, and everything else was very wonderfully made and performed, creating a total masterpiece of a film.
I still prefer some of the Ghibli films over Your Name, I think, but it’s a wonderful movie, and if you have a chance, I definitely recommend the watch. What are some of you guys’ favorite Anime Movies, and why? Let me know down in the comments, and I hope to see everyone again tomorrow!
