Fireworks

An interesting, mysterious story that while gorgeously animated, feels more like a stand-out episode of a Sci-Fi TV series than a standalone movie.

Goblin Slayer

A visceral love letter to Dungeons & Dragons, high fantasy, and tabletop RPGs that highlights the ugliness and toll such a world would take on its characters.

The End of Evangelion

If you, like me, finished the main series thinking "Well, I'm not really sure what happened, but there's another movie to wrap up those loose ends" then this won't be too satisfying. While some questions are answered, it creates more than those it answers. It does have one of the greatest fight scenes I've seen in animation.

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Evangelion is what made Mecha a great genre, filled with existential psychological enigmas and religious imagery. It is easily one of the most influential anime ever to have been created.

Fate/Stay Night

Definitely not a good show to have be your introduction to the Fate universe, even though it does do decent world-building. The music isn’t bad though, and if you like Fate and have seen the other adaptations, it won’t be a total waste of time.
