A solid, definitive ending to a solid series that sets the bar for what harem romance anime can be.
ODDTAXI: In the Woods
A reframing/retelling of the main series that is slightly more condensed, and with a tiny amount of new content/story. Not suitable to watch "instead of" the main series, but to be done after.
Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop
A wholesome, feel-good, low-stress adorable piece that channels the essence of teenage summer.
A magical and soul-stirring piece with beauty musically, emotionally, and artistically.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0
A fantastic prequel with a slightly more serious tone than the original series, and fantastic acting and animation.
Ghost in the Shell 2.0
An important, seminal cyberpunk experience that has aged a little since 1995, but still an interesting piece that cements the genre.
Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.01 Thrice Upon a Time
Finally a satisfying, well-balanced, cathartic finale to all Evangelion.
Evangelion: 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo
All new story from the series at this point, though a lot of the character development is the same, and primarily focuses on Shinji.
Fate/Stay Night: Heaven’s Feel III. Spring Song
Studio ufotable flexes on the entire anime industry again with some of the most gorgeous art and animation, coupled with Yuki Kajiura's perfect soundtrack. Unfortunately, the "rules of magic" gymnastics and overly complicated philosophy was distracting and made it more difficult to immerse as the previous movies.
Mirai is a magical family-focused movie that feels like a modern, Japanese "Coco" but with much less stress and more appreciation for simple things.
