The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya

This is the best anime movie from a TV series that I've seen. KyoAni's love for their craft is strongly felt here in a beautiful and emotional piece. All the good of Haruhi improved while trimming all eye-roll moments.

Serial Experiments Lain

The unsettling lovechild of The Matrix and Donnie Darko (yet predecessor of both), Lain is an existential ride that is hauntingly more relevant today than when it aired 22 years ago.

Koyomimonogatari

Mostly an OVA collection of half-episodes, except there are a few plot-critical episodes, specifically near the end. A nice breather before diving into the final seasons.
