Which is the best anime so far?
If by Anime I can consider both series and films, I would say my 10/10 are (in no particular order):
“J-pop idol group CHAM! has spent the last two years entertaining its fans.
Sadly, all good things must come to an end, and CHAM! must see one of its members, Mima Kirigoe, leave the group to pursue her acting career.
While Mima's choice is met with a mixed response, she hopes her fans will continue to support her. However, Mima's life begins to change drastically after her departure from the group.
Wanting to shed her pop-idol image, she takes on a role in a crime drama series, and her career as an actress gradually becomes more demanding and taxing for both Mima and her manager, Rumi Hidaka.
To add to Mima's growing unease, an obsessed fan who is incapable of accepting that Mima has quit being an innocent idol, begins stalking her; a new anonymous website begins to impersonate her life with intricate detail; and CHAM! also appears to be doing better without her.
One by one, each disturbing development drives Mima to become increasingly unhinged and unable to distinguish reality from fantasy.” As a rule of thumb, there are not any bad films from Satoshi Kon, you can watch them all and you will be impressed by the quality.
The main issue is that with health complications he passed away, so we lost a great mind, what we can do is hope that Madhouse will develop his last film that he left in his drafts. Mushishi From MAL: “"Mushi": the most basic forms of life in the world.
They exist without any goals or purposes aside from simply "being." They are beyond the shackles of the words "good" and "evil." Mushi can exist in countless forms and are capable of mimicking things from the natural world such as plants, diseases, and even phenomena like rainbows. This is, however, just a vague definition of these entities that inhabit the vibrant world of Mushishi, as to even call them a form of life would be an oversimplification.
Detailed information on Mushi is scarce because the majority of humans are unaware of their existence. So what are Mushi and why do they exist? This is the question that a "Mushishi," Ginko, ponders constantly.
Mushishi are those who research Mushi in hopes of understanding their place in the world's hierarchy of life. Ginko chases rumors of occurrences that could be tied to Mushi, all for the sake of finding an answer. It could, after all, lead to the meaning of life itself.” There are some sequels related to Mushishi that are just as good, and you should definitely give it a try.
I didn’t give them a 10, but a 9. P.S.: recently I did a rewatch of the series and it was just as great as the first time, it is slow-paced and, at least for me, it helped me relaxed from this hurried contemporary life. Kaze Tachinu From MAL: “Before the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, before the great war that tore Japan asunder, Jirou Horikoshi lived in a world of dreams - dreams of flight, and dreams of making the world a better place. Kaze Tachinu is the story of the man who created the Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighter, the most famous airplane in Japanese history.
From his childhood in Fujioka, Jirou dreamed of designing flying machines like his hero, Italian aviation pioneer Giovanni Battista Caproni.
Through disaster, romance, war and loss, Jirou continues to chase that dream - learning along the way that once released into the world, dreams can take on a very different shape.” I was eager to its release and watching it for the first time was so good.
I’d say that most films from Studio Ghibli are good, so you should definitely try them all out. Kimi no Na wa. From MAL: “Mitsuha Miyamizu, a high school girl, yearns to live the life of a boy in the bustling city of Tokyo—a dream that stands in stark contrast to her present life in the countryside.
Meanwhile in the city, Taki Tachibana lives a busy life as a high school student while juggling his part-time job and hopes for a future in architecture. One day, Mitsuha awakens in a room that is not her own and suddenly finds herself living the dream life in Tokyo—but in Taki's body! Elsewhere, Taki finds himself living Mitsuha's life in the humble countryside.
In pursuit of an answer to this strange phenomenon, they begin to search for one another. Kimi no Na wa.
revolves around Mitsuha and Taki's actions, which begin to have a dramatic impact on each other's lives, weaving them into a fabric held together by fate and circumstance.” There was a controversy related to this film because some people think it is overestimated, others think that the Oscar Academy was insane fot not even considering putting it as a nominee, I am one of those that is deeply in love with this film, I love Makoto Shinkai’s work in general, even if the story doesn’t please me, the whole aesthetic behind it is breathtaking, I also cheer for a healthy and long life for him. Monster From MAL: “Dr.
Kenzou Tenma is a renowned brain surgeon of Japanese descent working in Europe.
Highly lauded by his peers as one of the great young minds that will revolutionize the field, he is blessed with a beautiful fiancée and is on the cusp of a big promotion in the hospital he works at.
But all of that is about to change with a grave dilemma that Kenzou faces one night—whether to save the life of a small boy or that of the town's mayor.
Despite being pressured by his superiors to perform surgery on the mayor, his morals force him to perform the surgery on the other critical patient, saving his life and forfeiting the mayor's.
A doctor is taught to believe that all life is equal; however, when a series of murders occur in the surgeon's vicinity, all of the evidence pointing to the boy he saved, Kenzou's beliefs are shaken.
Along his journey to unravel the true identity of his little patient, Kenzou discovers that the fate of the world may be intertwined with the mysterious child.” I know I said before in no particular order, but Monster is one of the best animes I have ever seen and my favourite.
I know that it isn’t for most people, some think it is slow-paced, which I can’t deny, but I see a reason for being like the way it is; others point out flaws that most of the time aren’t really logically based.
All in all, I would suggest you to give it a try, and if you do and finish it, there is a “secret” ending that you will find reading “Another Monster”, which is a sequel for the anime, it hasn’t become an anime and I don’t think it will, but you should read it.
BTW there were talks about Del Toro making a live-action version of the anime, drafts have been made, Naoki Kurosawa - the manga’s creator - approved it, but we are still waiting.
