5. Perfect Blue (1998)
There are so many twists and turns in this film and you won't know who the killer is until the very end, because it keeps you guessing. It's so good it’ll make you wonder if you’re crazy or not after watching it. Okay that's a bit of an overstatement, but it's definitely a great film.
4. Dragon Ball Z: The History of Trunks
Out of the Dragon Ball Z family, Trunks is my second favorite character, with his dad Vegeta being my favorite. This was the second Dragon Ball Z film I watched and it tells the story of what might happen in the future if past events aren't changed. It reminds me a little bit of X-men: Days of Future Past in the sense that someone-Trunks in this case-goes back in time to create a better future for his family and his friends.
The fact that he's the only one left to take on the deadly androids in his timeline makes you root for him even more. It was interesting to learn more about this version of Trunks and his motivations as to why he's come to the past.
3. Sailor Moon R the Movie: The Promise of the Rose (1993)
Sailor Moon was also one of the first anime series that I watched and this was the first Sailor Moon film I saw. I still have it on VHS. It’s about the power of friendship and how relationships can take a turn to the dark side.
2. Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn (1995)
I remember watching this film while I took care of my grandma, I was in 12th grade in high school and classmate named Brandon let me borrow his VHS tape and my grandma and I watched it. There were a lot of funny moments and great fight scenes. It wasn’t just a great film it was a great memory.
1. Ninja Scroll (1993)
This was the first anime I had ever watched and it was my introduction to anime. It was an amazing experience. I remember sitting down in my cousin’s apartment in St. Thomas U.S. Virgin Islands and watching this film. I was captivated by the story and action sequences. Though I was a kid and my cousin made me close my eyes at parts, I still remember what an awesome film it was and cherish the memory.
