A few months back, I published a post titled: Favorite Anime Directors.   This list consisted of famed animation directors.  As a follow-up, I compiled a list of my Favorite Anime Movies.  These films are in no particular order because Top 5 or 10 for anything is too hard to narrow down, I just refuse to do that to myself.

Anime NYC Overview

Anime NYC was this past weekend and first, we want to give a huge shoutout to Anime Girls NYC. Meeting Stephanie was awesome since we talk back and forth on WordPress often, we actually unknowingly met at the checkpoint as I was complaining about taking off my backpack again to get in on the show floor after coming from the Artist Alley and she turned around and agreed. It was a funny first meeting before we met on the show floor and officially introduced ourselves to each other. Check out her blog and her review of Anime NYC here.

Favorite Anime Directors

Who’s the best anime director(s)?  Is a question that often pops up in conversation.  And while these answers vary from person to person, They are often biased.  Think about it?

So Liz, who are some of your favorite directors in the anime industry?

While the licensing companies have gotten a lot better over the years. Most fans still prefer subtitled anime. Continue reading
