Man, I remember my folks rented Princess Mononoke for me 'n my brother around when it first made its DVD debut at the local Movie Gallery (which went bankrupt in 2010), I musta been around 8. They turned it off after seeing the corrupt boar-god lie slain in a puddle of sizzling goo, having cursed the prince to 'suffer as I have suffered'.

Needless to say, I was hugely disappointed. One of the top 20 animes ever made.

I've heard of both of those, really should get around to watching.

As far as anime movies go, my tops are: Innocence, which is considered the second Ghost in the Shell movie. As some folks here may know, GitS was a huuuuge deal in anime (and manga), which contributed a great deal to the aesthetic of The Matrix, already mentioned here a couple posts up. Also Spirited Away, which to my mind is Miyazaki's magnum opus.

I'm very sensitive to the voice cast (*usually when I hear it dubbed first), so much so that, even if the rest of the anime is total crap (plot, writing, style, etc.), I'll enjoy it nevertheless.

The absolute best English voice cast ever featured in an anime is that of FLCL, which blows heavy-hitters like Cowboy Bebop out of the water (of course, a fair few voices appear in both).

A friend of mine turned me on to the first Dofus movie (showed me this clip), which though technically a French production, is nevertheless more 'anime' at the heart of it than most of the shit I've seen. Very worthwhile.

*Granted, most run-of-the-mill anime is unwatchable in English & simply must be watched subbed.

Oh yeah, baby! That's that good-good, as the kids say. Very easily the greatest soundtrack an anime ever had, beside FLCL & Cowboy Bebop.

Listen to that, man. Are you kidding me?!
