“What do you do when there is an evil you cannot defeat by just means? Do you stain your hands with evil to destroy evil? Or do you remain steadfastly just and righteous even if it means surrendering to evil?”
Many of us have watched a lot of anime through the years, but there will always be that one list of anime in the back of your mind that become timeless and close to your heart. No matter how many years have passed they still remain the best of the best, because let’s be honest, anime is not what it use to be.
This will include series/movies/OVAs. there are also many series in this list that i couldn’t decide which i love the most, so there isn’t a particular order.
Ghost in the shell
I really like the Ghost in the Shell franchise, but the 1995 animated movie was my favorite. the execution of the animation and the story/plot was definitely something special, and no matter how many years have passed it still remains one of the best. The fact that the Matrix was inspired by the GITS 1995 movie supports my point.
The music for stand alone complex by Yoko kanno was awesome.
Rurouni Kenshin - Trust and Betreyal OVA mini series. (the franchise better known as Samurai X)
You guys have no idea how much i love this OVA, because not only am i a sucker for symbolism and everything that has to do with Feudal Japan, but because this mini series did a wonderful job at conveying so much wisdom and depth. It has something poetic about it. to me it’s a masterpiece.
i have the DVD somewhere around my house, but, i can’t find it and i’m freaking out about it, cuz from what i’ve heard you can’t find that original version anywhere anymore since it was discontinued , so basically it’s a rare relic. 3 :’D
