Here is an introduction to some great anime, modern and classic, drama, sci-fi, action, and romance. You're guaranteed to find a gem you haven't heard of in here (or you just watch too many cartoons, grow up).
Proof that quality animators haven't left the second dimension behind, including the big guns of Disney and Studio Ghibli and lesser known animators like Sylvain Chomet. Including "Lilo & Stitch", "Spirited Away" and "The Triplets of Belleville"
Inspired by the industrialized Western world of the 19th Century, these post 2000 films often feature alternate realities where steam-power was never supplanted by electricity. Fans of H.G. Wells, Conan Doyle, or Jules Verne will have plenty to pick from.
Jules Verne would be so proud/confused! Steampunk finds a happy home in these Japanese animated adventures, including 'Wings of Honneamise', 'Castle in the Sky', and, of course, genre defining gem 'Steamboy'.
