For today's blog post, I wanted to talk about some anime films that I'm looking forward to watching for the first time. It goes without saying that some of the best animated movies have come from overseas (I'm from the U.S.), but I'll say it anyway.
Some of the best animated films have come from overseas, with heavy emphasis on Japanese in this case.
If you are a Hayao Miyazaki fan, then you would most likely enjoy these as well. My list consists of some films that have released in the last few years, and a couple others that I'm looking forward to seeing in the near future. And well, if you don’t know who he is, you're missing out on life and should immediately hole up in your room for a day to watch some of his amazing films like Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Grave of Firelies, The Cat Returns and Ponyo to name a few.
These films are not his, mind you, but I'm willing to bet that they will give you some similar feels! In any case, here's what I'm planning to watch:
▪︎ Weathering With You

▪︎ Summer Ghost

▪︎ Fruits Basket: Prelude
