|Case Closed The Movie: The Time Bombed Skyscraper||Masterpiece||Classic movie! Conan has to discover and disable the bombs planted around Tokyo by maniac that seeks for revenge against Kudo. Of course as a sugar at the end, Kudo's love interest is in danger because the last and most dangerous bomb is located in the building where Ran is. Emotions between Ran and Kudo are shown during that most intense scene in the movie.|
|Digimon Tamers (TV)||Very good|
|Digimon: Data Squad (TV)||Good|
|Digimon: The Movie (U.S.)||Good|
|Dragon Ball (TV)||Very good||Classic shonen, great comedy, unique characters and interesting plotline. Actually this anime is where the techniques and skills began developing, from the simplest to the more complex moves, strategies and skills. Dragon Ball really did much for shonen culture. The improvement of typical shonen fighting is widely seen in Naruto anime.|
|Princess Mononoke (movie)||Excellent|

Once you give in to the absurd, over-the-top ridiculousness of Symphogear, you'll never look back. ― Symphogear isn't a “traditionally good” show.
