First one that comes to mind is Hotarubi no Mori e. Not entirely sure how I found out about this one, but it was a tear-jerker. I've re-watched it a few times because I thought it was worth it and it's a beautiful story; I believe it's based on a manga? Or vice versa. Another one would be Grave of the Fireflies, which just happens to be another movie that will tug on your heartstrings and having it set during World War II does not help make it any less depressing. I have a certain affinity for emotional anime movies, but not for Western ones XD Anybody else have any favourites or recommendations?

    The ones that I can think of are only The Girl that leapt through time and Wolf Children. I liked Hotarubi no Morie e as well, but I can't consider it as a favourite.

    Hm... 5cm per Second, it has to be mentioned =)

    And obviously EVA movies. They are something I will surely never forget...

      I'm not a fan of Anime in general but I absolutely love Studio Ghibli(I regard it as a separate movie category of its own). Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle, and The Cat Returns are just some of the greatest ones.

        I really enjoy Summer Wars, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Redline and more recently Spirited Away.

        Summer Wars is my favourite movie of all time.

        Have a few, and Howl's Moving Castle would have to be one of them. Found the film to be pretty emotional; left me crying throughout the end. xD"

          Akira, I watched this when I was 6 and about a month ago I would just watch it like 3 times a day.
          Barefoot Gen, really good movie about how evil the people who gave the command to blow up hiroshima.
          Grave of the Fireflies, this movie sucks it is so bad it made me cry for like an hour because of how powerful it is. I am currently trying to get my hands on the guys memoirs to learn more about why he believed it was his fault his younger sister died till the very end of his life. It hit me really hard because of how realistic it is and when I put myself in his shoes I could really feel the pain. The worst part is how he said it was his fault right until his own death. Very sad, the movie sucks do not watch unless you want to have your spirit crushed!

            Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away are my all-time favourites that I faithfully watch again and again every year.

              Yeah I'm going with Howl's Moving Castle as well. The scenery is really good.

              I'm not that into Spirited Away, but with each watch I start appreciating it more, so I'll give it a mention.

              You watched Akira when you were 6?

              Can't imagine what your child mind thought of it.

                I unintentionally watched it, I was at a friends house and we were going through some old stuff and found it so we thought "Cartoons cewl" and popped it in, I remember the motorbikes, lasers, cool music and some messed up stuff.

                I kinda forgot to mention it since it's a movie series, but my absolute no.1 movies are Kara no Kyoukai.

                  Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle are amazing, Princess Mononoke too. I love Calcifer in Howl's Moving Castle, such a funny flame x3
                  I really enjoyed The Secret World of Arrietty, it had such a cute story and good animation, I recommend it.

                  I'm planning to try watching Ponyo some time, I think it looks pretty good~

                  I haven't seen a lot of Anime Movies, so in addition to the ones listed here I'd have to say Hal.

                  Oh! You've watched that one? I was excited about it when they announced it and only recently watched it subbed :P Was tragic, and slightly confusing, to be honest...

                  I had to look up some explanations, but it was pretty good. When are we getting better AI's?

                  XD Same, but the animation was well done and that's what interested me. Haha, I'm not entirely sure I'd want an AI to act as my lover, but if they have unconditional love towards you, why not? :P The Mardock Scramble movies were good as well, though the only one of the 3 that was memorable and interesting was the first one \: The second one seemed like a waste of time. GoHands and their overuse of blue-green gradients XD

                    Redline and Perfect Blue are the only two that come to mind, because for whatever reason I don't really care about anime movies. Perfect Blue was pretty good, but Redline is damn near perfect, and it has everything you could ever want from a racing movie. I heard the ending was kinda unpopular but I love my movies with just a lil bit of cheese.

                    I also liked Redline tbh but... since it was pretty much Madhouse experimenting, it's not my top favorite but the animation is fantastic, exactly what would one expect from Madhouse =)
