    LOL, seeing Apocalypse Zero on the list. Something about anime doing that kind of violence just doesn’t have the same effect as when live-action does it for me. Plus I thought the violence went too far in that one.

    Also, I never expected you to have Ghibli films in your top 100. Although Kiki and Totoro are the simple ones that don’t try to incorporate too much (which is part of the reason why I love them), so maybe it’s not that surprising.

      I love Apocalypse Zero’s grotesqueness. Its vulgarity is high art.

      And yeah, those are the only two Ghibli movies I have any real affection for. Castle in the Sky is a decent adventure movie, but the rest of Ghibli’s output is way too saccharine, too emotionally manipulative, or pushes its environmental agenda too much for me. They’re damn pretty, but they’re also kinda petty and precious.

      I know I’m, like, the only guy that feels that way, though.

      But yeah, Kiki and Totoro and straight-forward, simple kid movies. They don’t condescend like so many kid films. They’re fun coming of age shit.

    What made you move “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya” from the initial top 50 list to all the way down well below in the top 100?

      Everything that came after the original TV series really soured me on the series as a whole. Endless Eight didn’t piss me off as much as it did other people, but it was a bit of a waste. And that movie pretty much abandoned everything I liked about the series in favor of sad moe Yuki and stuff like that.
