9- ‘The Girl Who Leapt Through Time’, by Mamoru Hosoda (2006)
This film available on Netflix praised Hosoda to the top after taking charge of Digimon Adventure, and was one of the first to show the good balance that exists in the anime between custom and manners and science fiction.
Based on a high school student able to travel back in time to a point in her past, it’s the direct precedent of Your Name, marking a before and after in the genre.
10- ‘Perfect Blue’, by Satoshi Kon (1997)
Perfect Blue is one of the best-known films on the list, mainly thanks to Darren Arronofsky’s free version of the film with Black Swan.
Directed by Satoshi Kon, it portrays the depression suffered by the singer of a J-Pop group after her manager decides to remove her from the group. With fantasy traits provoked by the protagonist’s own mind, Perfect Blue earned a place as one of the best animes in history.
