I often try to make the case that Akira is one of the greatest works of entertainment ever made. I don't usually succeed.

Does that make me an autist?

If we included manga under the anime margin, Berserk would be on that list. Eva, not so much. Its just pretentious BS.

If you're talking to film buffs, you could probably point to the ending and relate it to the ending of 2001.

film = medium for recording
movie = any type of motion picture.
flick = movie.

Film and Cinema are the only ones that don't apply.

Fun and solid series, but they're hardly works of art.

If I had to nominate something it'd be something with a highly unorthodox story or artsytle.

Maybe something like angels egg or La maison en petit cubes>>119580677

The best anime has always been OVA's and movies. They tend to have much higher budget and thus much better animation. Their target audience isn't a bunch of Otaku so they can't be successful just be having some cute girls and video game references thus the writing also tends to be better.

TV anime is literally the lowest end of the anime spectrum. OVAs in their 80s and 90s golden day and movies from all decades consistently put out great works out.

Even if you want to say that Eva is the greatest TV anime ever produced, it's still not relevant because the movie version of Eva was better. Same with Madoka, the movie version is better. Literally the only TV anime ever made that can compete with the best OVAs and movies was Utena.

There's Madoka the Eva of this generation

One of my favorite films is actually the Silver Linings Playbook, which was released a few years back with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper.

Really great film. Hits home if you've ever had anger issues. Who am I talking to?

>while eva is actually intellectual
Eva is just characters refusing to work though unprocessed trauma leading to dysfunctional relationships all while caked under religious symbolism and bleeding robots.
I hope you mean intellectual as empty pompous story elements.
I'd rather watch an anime about quantitative easing and government spending destroying the economy and people futures.

Agreed. That's the honest truth right there, even though we don't always care to admit it. Ghibli? That's art. Sorry, it just is. Get over it. LoGH? Same deal. Incredible scope and ambition executed to perfection = art.

Do you truly believe that Ghibli is better than the Takahata series trio: Anne, Heidi and Marco?

Utena is the best TV anime but I'd argue that it's better than all of those OVAs and movies too.
