The word on the street is that Hayao Miyazaki is retiring and, while that makes me feel sad, he leaves us with one of the greatest back catalogues of all time. It's got me wondering: what are some of your favourite anime movies? And what are your favourite anime in general?
My favourite current Director working in anime is easily Mamoru Hosoda. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time was one of my all time favourites but his recent movies continue to raise the bar. Be warned: if you're a parent, The Wolf Children Ame And Yuki is going to drag every single tear from your body with vigorous force. You will lose at least a kilo in water weight.
But what about you guys and girls: what movies would you recommend? And are there any good new series worth watching?
