1. Princess Mononoke (1997)
Why of all the Disney movies, when i sat down for this list, this movie came to my mind first? I dont know but then this movie is captivating and very very visually appealing.
animation is great, story is really cool and characters are so cleverly made. you will surely fall for it even if you are not a fan of anime.

2. Howl's Moving Castle (2004)
do you know what makes movie great? "magical moments" yes ones that make your heart feel something that is why people love taxi driver, pulp fiction, and i guess tangled.

this movie has its really great magical moments like in the start when howl is flying her to her home, I really really wanted to be her!

3. Grave of the Fireflies (1988)
Grave of fireflies tell you a story of a brother and a sister who are surviving through a war. It's a very heart warming story and you can't help it but to cry in the end.

You have to watch it to feel this movie and no it's not your typical anime movie.

4. Spirited Away (2001)
This is the highest rated anime film out in the world. It also won an oscar and the animation, visuals, story telling and story is really great and engaging.

Even if you are not fond of anime, you still have to watch this movie.

5. Ponyo (2008)
ok Let me be frank, this movie's story did NOT make any sense to me. If it has made one to you, please do tell me. This movie though has a story issue yet I liked it because of its animation. the visuals are great. Hats off to animators for animating whole sea for us. You will see huge fish moving in the sea and its absolutely eye candy.

So because of that, I recommend it to every one. :)

6. Whisper of the Heart (1995)
Everyone can relate to this movie frankly since we all hit cross road during high school, when we want to decide what we are going to do with our life.
I liked the movie, it is very subtle, very smooth and watch out for music scene. It just made me go all emotional.

7. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984)
This I believe was the first venture of studio Ghibli and its nearly 3 decade old but when I was watching it I was thinking how on earth did they do those visuals and effects back in that time?
The story is great I even liked it more than spirited away's story. The visuals as I stated above are outstanding. If you havn't seen it, please do. :)

8. My Neighbour Totoro (1988)
This is sole pleasure movie. Sotry wise there isn't much to talk about, but its the moments in the movie and the way things progress that make you love it and feel it the way characters feel. It's so charmingly beautiful. I was in love with this movie in first 10 mins.
Can't praise it more. :)

its amazing how when you watch movies with your teachers, you get to know characters more, may be its because they hit space bar too much to say, look at the walk, look at the expression lol

45. Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011)
Kung fu Panda was AWESOME. It was epic so naturally you have higher expectations from the second movie but here is what happened.
This part 2 has a lot more going on than the first part so where we had a first part with great moments, funny dialogues and just plain fun scenes, now we have little fun moments, not so funny dialogues and lots of back ground stories to original story so though it had it all, it lost its soul somewhere in between. :(
My borther watched Kung fu Panda 5 times in cinema and this time I had to ask him 3 times to go watch kung fu panda 2 with me in cinema (my first time his 2nd) he refused.
oh but its not all bad in fact, animation is superb. They also experimented mixing it with other type of animation medium and it worked brilliantly. The last scenes are amazing.
so over all, I'd still would like to recommend it to people :)

46. Rango (2011)
I can't believe I am giving it a 7, I thought it would be like 9 star movie, but man it was boring!

May be I have yet to see lots of west movies to understand this humor but then what's the point of this movie if referencing is required.

Texturing: AWESOME, Lighting: way too perfect, Visual effects: too cool and mind blowing but story: nah its fine.

We were discussing it in our class too and none of my class fellows liked it, we were all like watch it for texturing only!

47. Rio (2011)
Rio is here because it has a very simple story (even cliched) but has a soul to it (people might disagree with me here) but I enjoyed it and laughed at it.
The scenery is amazing, they created whole Rio in 3d so wow! There is some very awesome action going on it too and yes the Jamoe Foxx song is awesome :)

48. Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hool... (2010)
animation: awesome
visuals: simply breath taking

but

story: very cliched, script could be tighter, little humor could do something in there and characters could have progressed more

so yes it is boring and not as much as fun as one can anticipate but since the list title says, awesome animations so it has to be here because WOW, it looks AWESOME.

I am an animation student basically so i love to see animations here is a list of all animation i watched and loved, I hope you will like them and also, list is not in any particular order! I don't have the heart to rate them also i know how hard it is to make animation so i go easy in ratings (i usually go bit harsh lol) so by and large they all are awesome for me!

if your favorite animation is not here, tell me and I'll watch it! I love seeing more and more animations!

update: as much as i hate to admit, i have never seen an anime series and whenever I try to search, bazillions of names come and i go o.O and end up watching nothing at all. so if you have seen good anime series, let me know :)

great list! i watched about 18 of those and loved them all, i've gotta watch the rest too. You can watch "Rango", it's a bit different kind of animation, but interesting :)
And i'd def. add Avatar to this list.
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Jun 9 8:09
Rango was in cinema here in pak but I was busy with my exams. now I am waiting for a dvd. will surely see. Avatar was a live motion with cg, I was looking for complete animations! :)
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Jun 14 2:01
One movie missing in the impressive list, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole
Posted: 3 years, 5 months ago at Jun 14 11:36
oh yeah, i have it downloaded, just didnt get a chance to see. Once I am done with thesis, will definitely see! :)
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Aug 9 5:39
Of the ones currently listed you haven't seen, I've only seen 3...Coraline is amazing. Spirited Away & Corpse Bride I enjoyed but I feel like they're overrated a bit. All 3 are worth watching though.

Any of these you haven't seen I highly recommend: Mary and Max, Tokyo Godfathers, Princess Mononoke, both Vampire Hunter D films, Akira...and I swear there are others but I'm drawing a blank. Must be my bedtime. :P

I love Studio Ghibli!
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at Jul 29 19:11
Nice list!! Cool to see your love of Ghibli going strong. Just wondering, have you seen Whisper of the Heart?? It's my favourite Ghibli film, well worth a look.
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at Jul 30 4:49
I did but forgot to update the list. will add :)
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Oct 9 19:32
Great list! You might add Moribito to this list :)
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Oct 10 0:39
Good list! A few of these I didn't like, but it still gets my vote. One Piece is a fun anime series, and I agree, Moribito is great too. Also, for movies, try The Castle of Cagliostro and Vampire Hunter D.
Two animated movies I want to see are Frankenweenie (coming out soon) and Hotel Transylvania (at theaters now) :D
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Oct 10 5:44
yeah some of these don't have very strong story to back them up but I liked the animation, the way characters moved and the action, follow throughs, awesome!
Both movies sound great, I have yet to see them too. :)
Posted: 2 years, 1 month ago at Oct 12 6:01
You, Madam, have the unfortunate luck of having gained my attention by asking what anime to watch, but let's just go with movies for now. Perfect Blue, Summer Wars, Sword of the Stranger, Redline, Steamboy, Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone and 2.22 You Can(not) Advance.

You can message me if you want more anime recommendations.
Posted: 2 years ago at Oct 31 20:37
princess mononoke it's a masterpiece it maybe somekind of creepy for young kids but it's a special fantasy story. outstanding list
Posted: 2 years ago at Oct 31 20:52
I have a list of anime you might check out: http://www.listal.com/list/anime-fraterlucis
I haven't seen all of these, so if you watch any of them that I haven't, let me know your thoughts on them.
