Top Renting Japanese Animation Films

(May 26, 2015)
My Neighbor Totoro The Wind Rises My Neighbor Totoro
Once again, Hayao Miyazaki's "Spirited Away" (2001) is in the #1 position of this week's Top Renting Japanese Animation list. He also directed the other two films on the podium: "The Wind Rises" (2013) and "My Neighbor Totoro" (1988). As expected from the grandfather of the Anime world, he also landed the 4th ("Princess Mononoke"), the 6th ("Kiki's Delivery Service") and the 7th ("Nausicaa: Valley of the Wind") positions. Hiroyuki Okiura's "Letter to Momo" (2011) broke the Miyazaki straight run through the Top 10 by taking 5th, Isao Takahata's "The Tale of The Princess Kaguya" (2013) took 8th and "Attack on Titan" rounds out the Top 10. Goro Miyazaki's (Hayao's son) first film "Tales from Earthsea" (2006) has been in the Top 10 since its release, this time landing in 9th. There even are more Hayao Miyazaki films scattered throughout the Top 100 (he's directed 26 titles so far -- you'll find them mostly towards the beginning of the list). If you are a regular in the Anime section, odds are pretty good you've seen everything mentioned so far already. Even so, scan through the Top 100 list, there may be a few titles you haven't seen yet. However, if you are new to the world of Anime, your best bet is probably to try a Miyazaki title, go with the classic "Akira" or start one of the more popular series (Sailor Moon, Cowboy Bebop, Death Note, One Piece, etc).
