Last week, One Piece Movie: Red surpassed all previous anime films to rank tenth at the Japanese box office. Dragon Ball Super: Super heroes also set an opening weekend box office record for an animated film. The success of these films led to a huge increase in the number of animated films.


These films lack nowhere in plot, dialogue, cinematography or direction and have greater visual possibilities than live-action films. As Red receives a worldwide release in the coming months, it could secure a place among the world’s highest-grossing animated films, as well as Super hero. However, the current top 10 is not easy to beat.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

ten The Wind Rises (2013) – $136,454,220

Studio Ghibli’s inspirational historical drama about Jirou Horikoshi was director Miyazaki Hayao’s final film. It gave the anime industry a blockbuster despite the movie bordering on both sides of the political spectrum. The wind picks up accumulated $136 million worldwide.

Jirou was the Japanese aeronautical engineer responsible for designing the Mitsubishi Zero, the fighter plane used during World War II. The film’s perceived anti-war stance drew mixed reviews, but it couldn’t break the spirit of the plot. Technically, the art is jaw-dropping and the pacing is steady, but the dreamy sequences stand out as the best aspect.

9 The Secret World of Arrietty (2010) – $149,411,550

A Studio Ghibli film based on a book, Arrietty’s Secret World, is an adaptation of the 1952 novel The Borrowers by Mary Norton. It follows Shou as he learns about his unique neighbor, miniature girl Arrietty, and her family. It’s a breathtaking story of an unusual friendship that thrives despite all odds.

The film’s animation and music are surreal. The plot may lack serious conflict, but the film is worth watching for its incredible attention to detail. The rich character development, especially the main character, Arrietty, makes up for the plot holes.

8 Princess Mononoke (1997) – $159,414,369

A violent film in the Original Studio Ghibli canon that captivated American audiences, Princess Mononokegrossed $159 million even in 1997. It’s a story about the connection between technology and nature while advocating a path for harmony and coexistence.

All the main characters in the film have mythological origins. The most intriguing aspect of the film is Princess Mononoke’s fierce personality versus Ashitaka’s innocence and goodwill. The film has dark overtones but makes full use of symbols to make it empowering. It blurs the lines between good and evil rather than having a traditional narrative of good versus evil.

seven Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie (2022) – $166,368,128

The film is based on the precursor Jujutsu Kaisen Volume 0, which served as the pilot for the Manga series. The story of Jujutsu Kaisen 0 takes place before the events of the animated series. It features Yuuta Okkotsu and the anime series’ antagonist Getou’s backstory is revealed.

Yuuta’s character development is endearing, and as a result, the film’s superb fight scenes follow. Additionally, the characters of Zen’in Maki, Inumaki Toge, and Panda gain the depth they need. As usual, Gojo Satorou’s charisma and dialogue make him the attraction. The animation is fantastic, as you would expect from Mappa Studios.

6 Aging With You (2020) – $193,840,806

grow old with you is a magical and adorable story about Hodaka Morishima and Hina Amano. The film is set during an outbreak of uncontrollable rain in Tokyo. The film became the highest-grossing Japanese film of 2019 and grossed $193 million. The film was also criticized for sharing many parallels with Your Name.

Everything about the art and animation, including character design, scenery, and movement details, is excellent. The plot is grounded and features realistic main character stories without annoying cliches. It has emotional weight to drive the audience alongside the visual effects.

5 Ponyo (2009) – $204,171,810

Ponyo
Tells the story of a goldfish, Ponyo, who escapes from the ocean and his savior, a five-year-old human boy, Sōsuke.
Ponyo is one of the most likable characters created by Studio Ghibli. Although aimed at young audiences, the film earned $204 million. At the Tokyo Anime Awards,
Ponyo
also won Best Anime of the Year. The film’s endearing exchanges between Ponyo and Sōsuke are its cutest feature. It has inspiring concepts and stunning visuals, especially the ocean scenes. The film has a perfect and dreamy dubbing. Although it is a children’s film, it is a love tale in the truest sense of the word and suitable for all audiences.

4 Howl’s Moving Castle (2004) – $235,347,345

Howl’s Howl’s Moving Castle Is a fantasy film loosely based on the 1986 novel by Diana Wynne Jones. It is an adorable and inspiring story about a little girl Sophie, who transforms into an old woman and ends up living with a wizard named Howl in his castle in movement. The premise is interesting, but the characters’ personalities may seem typical of Miyazaki.

RELATED: The 10 Studio Ghibli Movies With The Best English Dubs

The character and background designs are complex. The soundtracks also give the film the ideal nuance. The film is set against the backdrop of a war with another kingdom and takes an anti-war stance in the narrative. Other themes of old age and self-acceptance also take center stage. For English speakers, Howl’s Moving Castle has one of the best voice acting.

3 Spirited Away (2001) – $274,925,095

Released in 2001, Taken away as if by magic still holds its place as the most intriguing animated film. It also won the Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature at the 75th Academy Awards. The film tells the story of a ten-year-old Chihiro Ogino who unwittingly enters Kami’s world. The popularity of the film is well justified.

RELATED: The 10 Best Studio Ghibli Movies (According To IMDb)

The film looks like a lucid dream. Smooth animations leave nothing to chance, making Taken away as if by magic a magical experience. The use of lights, shadows, shapes and colors, especially with spirits, is vivid. Taken away as if by magic lacked characters who were clearly good or bad. Everyone has a bit of it, and some have let their darker sides show more. It is realistic and takes place in a fantasy world.

2 Your Name (2017) – $357,986,087

The most beautiful romantic comedy animated film, your name, soared to the top of the charts after its initial release in 2016. It’s smart and emotional, with a well-executed twist. The animation is so gorgeous that it can make the audience watch the movie twice to appreciate the art.

This love story is moving and touching. It’s harder to inject fiction into a love story. However, the story of your name does the job without seeming extra or unnecessary. This gripping story about Mitsuha and Taki waking up in each other’s bodies one day and living each other’s lives as they search for each other will leave everyone speechless.

1 Demon Slayer The Movie: Mugen Train (2021) – $453,210,959

The most recent demon slayer film, Train Mugen, broke all sales records and quickly became the highest-grossing animated film of all time. This dark fantasy action movie is based on the Mugen Train arc and is the direct sequel to the first season of demon slayer.

The action scenes are breathtaking. Arguably one of the best fight scenes in the anime is the final battle between Rengoku and the upper tier three monster. Train Mugen is Ufotable’s best movie of all time. The movie is near perfect, with a gripping plot, great music, and thrilling 2D and 3D visual effects. It’s a two-hour work of genius that brilliantly illuminates the field of animation.

“Rakka Ryūsu” Special VP:

It looks like Crunchyroll has finally realized that it’s not just anime series that audiences want. We also want to watch animated feature films. Luckily, they’re hard at work, and those anime movies are coming very soon.

Crunchyroll and their new/old anime movies

Not really one of the anime movies coming in September, but a good watch nonetheless.

Crunchyroll is proud to announce that a whole host of anime movies are coming to their streaming platform in September 2022. The list of upcoming anime movies is quite long. Genres range from dark fantasy horror for Jujutsu Kaisen 0 to fun sci-fi comedy-drama for The girl who crossed time. All in all, there is something here for everyone when September rolls around.

You can see a full list of anime movies Crunchyroll will be adding to the streaming service in September below:

Crunchyroll: September 2022 Anime Movie Releases

September 1st

Afro Samurai: Resurrection (Gonzo)

"Afro Samurai: Resurrection" key visual.
Get ready for more blood, gore and afros than ever before.

Afro Samurai (Samuel L. Jackson) has avenged his father and found a life of peace. But the legendary master is forced back into the game by a beautiful and deadly woman from his past. Nowhere are the flames of hatred more intense than in the eyes of Sio (Lucy Liu: Kill Bill). She won’t give up until Afro learns the brutal lessons he gave to those who stood in his way.

This helmet is oddly hilarious to me.

Bang Dream! Poppin’ Dream! (SANZIGEN)

It looks a lot like another idol anime. It just makes me want The Zombie Country Saga.

September 8

ODDTAXI in the woods (OLM)

"ODDTAXI in the woods" key visual.
As zootopiabut if it was a dark and mysterious drama.

Taxi driver Walrus Odokawa lives a lonely life without family, social activities, or stimulating conversation. His only friends? His doctor and a former high school classmate. But her mundane existence is thrown into chaos as interactions with seemingly unrelated fare – a student, a nurse, a comedy duo, a thug and an idol group – converge with a missing girl on her way out.

Wait, can walruses even sweat?

PSYCHO-PASS Sinners of the System: Case.1 Crime and Punishment (IG production)

I become strong ghost in the shell vibrations of that.

PSYCHO-PASS Sinners of the System: Cas.2 First Guardian (IG production)

The ghost in the shell the vibrations become even stronger.

PSYCHO-PASS Sinners of the System: Cas.3 Beyond the Paleness of Vengeance (IG production)

That’s over 9000!

September 15

The girl who crossed time (Crazy’s house)

"The girl who crossed time" key visual.
A.K.A: Time travel for fun until it’s not.

After waking up late, missing her pop quiz, repeatedly embarrassing herself, and starting a fire in her home economics class, high school student Makoto Konno thinks she’s just having one of those days. And just when she thinks she’s succeeded, her bike’s brakes malfunction, putting her on a collision course with a speeding train. The fatal accident would have been the perfect end to the worst day ever, but the weirdest thing happens: it jumps back in time.

Nice reminder of the theatrical release poster in this thumbnail here.

The Stranger’s Sword (BONES)

"The Stranger's Sword" key visual.
Oh look it’s chibi Sif!

This classic tale from studio BONES is a hidden gem of its time! Pursued by fearsome Chinese assassins, young Kotaro and his dog encounter No Name, a mysterious stranger who finds himself drawn into the pursuit. The unlikely companions form a bond to save the dog from a poisonous attack, but chaos erupts when the assassins find Kotaro, and No Name must face his past before a horrific fate happens again.

It gives me strength Dororo vibes, but with a mixed dog.

Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic (Pictures A-1)

Aliases: the zombie Titanic bow.

Embark on the next great adventure of Ciel and his demonic butler, Sebastian! After hearing rumors of a particular company bringing people back from the dead, the two board the luxury liner Campania on its maiden voyage to investigate. Incognito within the mysterious Aurora Society, they discover familiar faces and a sight they cannot believe: a woman risen from the dead! But surprise quickly turns to dread when the staggering corpse attacks.

September 21

"JUJUTSU KAISEN 0" key visual.
I swear it’s like Bleachbut with a battle panda.

JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 follows Yuta Okkotsu, a nervous high school student, who enrolls in the mysterious Tokyo Jujutsu High School under the guidance of Satoru Gojo after being haunted by the curse of his childhood friend.

But with a little more horror than Bleach normally would, and that’s saying something.

September 22

High speed! -Free! Departure days- (Animated Kyoto)

AKA: This swimming anime.

Before making waves in high school, Haru and Makoto made their mark in middle school! Dive into the past with your favorite swimmers and new faces as they learn what it’s like to work together and make new friends.

Free! -Timeless Blend- The Bond (Animated Kyoto)

Now apparently with diving too.

Free! -Timeless Blend- The Promise (Animated Kyoto)

How many swimming anime can you have in one day?

Haru and Rin swim towards a bright future. But will they be able to meet the challenges that await them? After all they’ve been through, with their friends by their side, they’re going to make a splash!

Free! -Road to the world- the dream (Animated Kyoto)

September 22 must be World Anime Swim Day or something.

September 29

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion I – Getting Started (Sunrise)

AKA: Animated Compilation Part 1.

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion II – Transgression (Sunrise)

And now for part 2 of this anime compilation.

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion III – Glorification (Sunrise)

Well, this must be the last part now, right?

Code Geass: Resurrection Lelouch (Sunrise)

"Code Geass: Resurrection Lelouch" key visual.
Oh wait, that’s technically part 4.

He gave his life to save the world and protect those he loved. The day Lelouch vi Brittannia fell was the day this war-torn world found peace. Now, as his friends work to keep the peace, a terrorist attack could risk everything. Can the brilliant tactician outwit death and save them all? Where will Lelouch’s legacy fall here?

Was the whole anime compilation movie arc just to set up this sequel? Oh good?

Although the film tells a touching underdog story of humanity and heroism, what’s most impressive about Promare is its neon-pastel aesthetic with vivid hues of pink, blue, yellow, and black that are completely mesmerizing. The artistic direction of Promare looks stunning, with a clever use of light and shadow that plays tricks on the eye, manipulating space to create movement, tone and depth. The film’s varying use of camera angles keeps the eye moving, with fast-paced scenes that put you right in the thick of the action, taking place before you’ve enjoyed the pages of a manga.
