These are all films that really got me to respect Japanese animation as a higher art form...feel free to leave comments to discuss...whatever anime influenced you as a kid or student of film/animation would be cool too...but I feel like these are all must watch classics.

I absolutely love Perfect Blue! Satoshi Kon was a true genius! The movie is actually what made me want to pursue film once I graduate high school

Akira. Even though the ending never cease to make me question a lot.

Out of the list, I've only seen Akira. While I wasn't very enthralled by the story and characters, I found the art and animation to be amazing. Nuts to think that it was made several decades ago. I'll see if I can find the others on legal streams or if my library might have copies.

The earliest films I remember seeing are the first Pokemon and Dragon Ball movies. It wasn't until I saw Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away that I truly impressed with some anime films.

Perfect Blue: Satoshi Kon brought adult themes to anime. He is missed.

I own all of them beside Vampire Hunter D.

My vote goes to Ninja Scroll. It's just an enjoyable samurai anime without having to think too much.

Perfect Blue and GITS, but I'll give the nod to GITS because the original movie is so amazing and a tad more accessible than Perfect Blue.

RIP Satoshi Kon
