Japan’s top cinema rag Kinema Junpo has published a list of the best anime movies of all time.
The ranking, covering Japanese animation and arrived at by a panel of 67 film critics and other experts:
1. Lupin the Third: Castle of Cagliostro
2. Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
3. My Neighbor Totoro
4. Crayon Shin-chan: The Storm Called: The Adult Empire Strikes Back
6. Nagagutsu wo Haita Neko
Urusei Yatsura 2
Taiyō no Ōji
The Tale of the White Serpent
Summer Days with Coo
Castle in the Sky
Grave of the Fireflies
With apologies to those expecting results in an easily comprehensible top 10 format.
As expected, Ghibli handily dominates the rankings, along with a number of classics from the last century.
