Do you know what the best anime movie of the last couple years is? I'll give you a hint: it's nothing by Makoto Shinkai, the Tyler Perry of anime. It's probably this one.

Let's talk about anime movies for a second. There are three kinds of original anime movies:

A. ghibli
B. Over-produced trashy teen romances for the lowest common denominator that could've been live action

The former being responsible for projects such as the Berserk movie adaptations, a Batman miniseries, and a film adaptation of one of my favorite manga Kaijuu no Kodomo and the latter having made popular French cartoon series Wakfu. I had high hopes having enjoyed Wakfu a great deal, but those expectations fell woefully short. The production quality and pipeline of Studio ...
