Made In Abyss Movie 3: Dawn of the Deep Soul is the first animated continuation of the series storyline, debuting almost 3 years after the first season’s conclusion. The movie-level budget used to animate one of Made in Abyss‘ deadliest foes, Bondrewd, only served to increase the apprehension present in the series, making it one of the most tantalizing and traumatizing horror movies and sequels ever made.
After being cursed by a demon boar that attacked his village, Prince Ashitaka is instructed by the village elders to travel west in search of a cure for his curse. When Ashitaka arrives at Iron Town, he is thrust into the middle of a conflict between Lady Eboshi of Tatara, and Princess San, the human representative of the Sacred Forest Spirits.
Unlike Hayao Miyazaki’s other works, Princess Mononoke is a much darker film, focusing on the discourse between humans and nature in one of animes best historical fantasy movies. And though Ashitaka is the first character introduced, the true conflict is between the equally strong-willed women, Eboshi and San, which is a hallmark of Miyazaki films where the female characters take center stage, not relying on a male hero to save them.
The third and final installment in the Fate/ Stay Night Heaven’s Feel movie trilogy, Spring Song shows Shirou Emiya, Rin Toosaka, and Illyasveil von Einzbern learn the true identity and prepare to fight their shadowy enemy that has already claimed the lives of countless humans and servants, knowing that one mistake means certain death.
Compared to Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works, Heavens Feel is a significantly darker and more tragic route. Its large cast of characters and alternate characters introduced in Heaven’s Feel provides a dynamic previously non-existent in the series which leads to a fresh and exciting take on the popular series.
After her parents stumble across an unexplainable buffet that turns them into pigs, Chihiro finds herself stranded in the Spirit World scared and alone. During her search for her parents and a way to turn them back to their human forms, Chihiro is forced to work at a bathhouse where she meets a young boy Haku who assists her in her search.
Spirited Away captivated audiences by having a simple, and often unreliable female protagonist who stumbles often, but never gives up in her endeavor to return to her parents. When it was released in 2001, it provided an exciting and relatable example for many young female anime fans and opened up the genre of anime to a massive and entirely new group of fans.
After defeating the three vampire hunters who had previously overpowered Kiss-shot Acerola-Orion Heart-Under-Blade the Iron-blooded Hot-blooded Cold-blooded vampire, Araragi is faced with the choice of whether he should return her final limb and restore her to power, as no one knows what she would be capable of at full strength.

Kizumonogatari III: Reiketsu-hen, the final installment of the Monogatari series prequel movies, became massively popular for its first true depiction of the full extent of Kiss-shot’s powers. It also served as both foreshadowing and explanation to previous plot points that were mentioned but never elaborated upon in the main series, making it arguably the most important installment in the entire Monogatari Series.
Mitsuha Miyamizu, a young girl from the countryside who dreams of life in the bustling city of Tokyo, and Taki Tachibana, a hard-working and stressed high school boy from Tokyo each spend their days wondering how the other’s “ideal” life would be. When one day they wake up in one another’s body, the two strive to find one another and meet face to face.
On top of the compelling and growing love story between Mitsuha and Taki becoming one of anime’s cutest couples, which was both genuinely adorable and increasingly mysterious as the plot progresses, Kimi No Na Wa., similar to other movies created by Makoto Shinkai, has astounding visual animation. The beautiful and well-detailed backgrounds are only surpassed by its exceptional score by the RADWIMPS, which directly ties into the movie, at times even causing Makoto to change the pacing of the movie to better fit the music.
After his failed attempt to apprehend a movie pirate, Gintoki finds himself transported 5 years into the future where the world has been ravaged by the “white plague.” Gintoki then must find his teammates Shinpachi Shimura, and Kagura to aid him in his investigation and eradication of the “white plague.”
Gintama Movie 2 is a standalone film focusing on Gintoki’s past and provides a previously unknown backstory for the character who until then was just an exceptional comedic relief character. Its unique position as a side-story movie makes it accessible to new fans of the series, allowing them to experience the characters’ dynamics while also spoiling none of the main story’s arcs. It’s a novel concept for a movie released so far along in the series and it paid off with excellent reviews and a whole wave of newly inspired Gintama fans.
Years after The Great War ended, Violet, while seeing a steady increase in her fame, sees the world slowly move away from “Auto Memory Dolls” as the world transitions to using phones the closer the Leidenschaftlich Radio Tower comes to completion. As the world changes around her, so do Violet’s emotions as she comes ever closer to understanding the meaning of “love.”

The Violet Evergarden Movie earned its popularity by showcasing the end of Violet’s journey from an enemy-killing robot to what can only be called a human.

Shouya Ishida, after spending his youth bullying his fellow students, the deaf Shouko Nishimiya among them, becomes the subject of bullying and ostracization when he is solely blamed for the entire incident after Souko moves away. Now a senior in high school, Shouya makes it his mission to find Shouko and make amends for the terrible ordeals he put her through.
Koe no Katachidrew audiences for its grounded representation of the effects of bullying, both from the bully’s perspective, as well as the one being bullied, and cemented it as the best standalone anime film of the 2010s. The decision to not make Shouya feel sorry for himself and instead grow to understand the pain of what he put Shouko through, made his journey of atonement significantly more believable and brought the characters to life in ways many movies have fallen short of.
Two years after the Yorozuya group’s dissolution following the invasion of the O-Edo Central Terminal by the Tendoshuu, Gintoki makes his way back to Edo. After regrouping the Shinsengumi and Yorozuya, Gintoki and the two groups fight back against the Tendoshuu in their attempt to reclaim Edo.
Gintama: The Final is an exceptionally animated movie and was able to devote a significant amount more time and resources to perfect every scene to the utmost extent. But its true greatest accomplishment is being the final installment of the Gintama series, with the animators going all out to end the series on the highest note possible, giving Gintama, one of the most popular manga created, a proper send-off.
