    Millennium Actress.

    For Satoshi Kon, I really like the simplicity here, and that includes the ending which I've seen some complaints about. It's almost certainly his best looking movie, I was really impressed on that front. My Kon ranking goes something like:

    Perfect Blue > Tokyo Godfathers > Millennium Actress >>> Paprika

    I actually have a hard time figuring out where to file this one in my head. It's a wonderful movie, but it leaves me with so little other than a lot of beautiful images and a hollow ambivalence about love and aging (not going to touch how it pairs up with Perfect Blue), which is hard to stack up against the much more direct and obvious emotional highlights in Perfect Blue and Tokyo Godfathers. Not that this one is tough to crack or anything, just having trouble sorting out my feelings or saying anything about it.

    King's Game. You get exactly what's advertised on the cover. I found it hilarious, and even moreso given its extremely low ratings on Anilist and MAL.

    Usagi Drop. Slice of life genre, seems like for mature audiences. This is maybe the most realistic anime: not only its characters lack special abilities, but they don't use luck either. 0%...

    Usagi Drop. Slice of life genre, seems like for mature audiences. This is maybe the most realistic anime: not only its characters lack special abilities, but they don't use luck either. 0% violence. Regular people from the real world could recreate the story from the anime, but it's still nice and cozy, that's amusing. Manga is reportedly different and controversial though.
