    Suzumiya movie was like reading the novel on the screen. It was so faithful to the source material that I couldn't believe it. An amazing movie that deserved first place!

  • Eduardo Catacora-Lopez

    Ridiculous list. Samurai X the movie it is clearly the best anime movie by far.

    One Piece Strong World was ok, but what was a masterpiece was One Piece Film Z. that movie became emotional by the end

    I think the endless eight might have killed Haruhi. Sure it's an original concept. But who in the right mind would sit through 8 full episodes of the same day being repeated but with minor changes each time. Like the outfits change each time.... It's pure insanity and a suffering of the mind.

    The lack of Tamako Love Story makes me very sad. One of my favorite movies ever, let alone anime films. It is the single most true-to-life adolescent romance out there, and everyone needs to watch it.

    I blame the Endless Eight for the end of the Haruhi anime. It was an interesting experiment, and I'm proud to say I've sat through the whole thing, but it was still a pain in the ass that ate up half of season two, and left it with only two other stories to tell. No wonder we haven't seen a continuation. But I still want one.

    I would personally choose Dragon Ball Z's 8th movie : (Broly : the legendary super Saiyan) over battle of gods or any other movie, but I understand why you did not choose this master piece as some people with poor taste hate that movie and would post a lot of negative comments about it.
    personally I think Broly's backstory is the best villain story ever, you can not identify with that problem, and you can not comprehend it, because you are not as evil as Broly, and you power is not Maximum.

    Naruto Shippuden: Road To Ninja. Seriously that movie with Naruto and Sakura hating their lives, but at the end learning to accept that their lives are blessings in their own ways, and all their friends with their alternate quirks and personalities.

    It's funny that they inserted Kizumonogatari but we all knew why it isn't at the top 10 (Srusly) and Do all the Detective Conan Movies COUNT? *Tho Evangelion is...... and I could name some Kyoukai No Kanata,HxH, and Zatch Bell (Really needs A HUGE LOVE AND fandommm... Surprised Love Live was not here *Triggering some people mwuhaha!!! (Just for pun,No Harm Intended -- But just asking..)

    Battle of Gods was decent, the fight was even better done in the anime late and the universe 6 saga tournament was also good but beside that rest (fillers, resurrection of f, trunks arc) are worse than GT.
