    AniMetacritic V.2: Top 50 Standalone Anime Series

    Favs/dislikes: 7:1. In November 2013, Kadian created [url=http://thecartdriver.com/animetacritic-v-2-more-reviewers-more-lists/]AniMetacritic V.2[/url], a list of the highest rated anime by 161 reviewers and critics (based on ratings from their MAL profiles). It is an expanded version of Scamp's original [url=http://thecartdriver.com/animetacritic-what-anime-reviewers-think-are-the-best-and-worst-anime-of-all-time/]AniMetacritic[/url] list. This is a list of the top 50 standalone series on AniMetacritic V.2. I am defining "standalone" as any series which is the first (or only) series in its franchise (so sequels and remakes are excluded).

    Favs/dislikes: 16:1. Below are the films that have won over five "industry awards," defined as those awards selected by professionals in the movie business. I limited the pool of film industry bodies to those from the following countries: Australia (AACTA, formerly AFI), China (Golden Horse & Golden Rooster), France (Cesar), Germany (Lola), Great Britain (BAFTA), Italy (Donatello), India (Lotus), Japan (Awards of the Japanese Academy), Mexico (Ariel), Russia (Nika), Sweden (Guldbagge), and the United States (Oscar). All titles are sorted first by total, then by year of release. The leader (at 23) is "The Last Emperor" with 9 Oscars, 9 Donatellos, 3 BAFTAs, 1 Cesar, and an award from the Japanese Academy.

  8. 100 Anime (BFI Screen Guides)'s icon

    100 Anime (BFI Screen Guides)

    Favs/dislikes: 28:0. This list is from Philip Brophy's book [url=http://filmstore.bfi.org.uk/acatalog/info_178.html]100 Anime[/url] (2005). "100 Anime is an exploration of the wonderfully complex and beautifully disorienting world of Japanese animation - anime. This expansive and mind-blowing book delves deep into the chaos of meaning gorged by anime's mutation of Eastern/Western themes, images and sounds." This is not a list of the "100 Greatest Anime." Some of the titles were selected in order to analyze Japanese pop culture and to show how vast the world of anime is. The list is in alphabetical order. Missing from IMDb: SD Gundam (1988)
  9. 100 Years of Japanese Cinema's icon

    100 Years of Japanese Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 14:0. List of movies that was mentioned in BFI documentary project
  10. A Guide to Pinky Violence's icon

    A Guide to Pinky Violence

    Favs/dislikes: 28:0. "Pinky Violence" refers to a genre of Japanese action cinema which began in the late 1960's and continued through the mid 1970's. Typically featuring a young female protagonist, these films often told stories of revenge or gangland violence. Despite the word "pinky", these films were not usually softcore (although a couple of titles toe the line). While certainly characterized by considerable nudity as a means of luring in a waning cinema audience, sex scenes were limited, typically in furtherance of the plot, and extremely mild in comparison to the "Roman Porno" line being produced at Nikkatsu. Instead, the focus is on wild, outrageous action, colorful direction and a spirit of youthful energy. The genre primarily refers to a line of films released by Toei (one of Japan's major studios), however two series from rival series mirror the sensibilities enough that they are often included: Toho's "Rica" series, and Nikkatsu's "Stray Cat Rock" films. This list is based on the list suggested by KamuiX in his article "The World of Pinky Violence, An Intro." It is grouped by series, rather than chronology, with stand-alone films appearing at the bottom of the list. IMDB's coverage of Japanese films is not always great. The following films should be on this list, but lack an imdb entry: Zubekô banchô: Tôkyô nagaremono (AKA Delinquent Girl Boss 2) Terrifying Girls' High School 4: Animal Courage All three films in "Joshi Gakuen" series Bankaku Rock Hell's Angels: Crimson Roar

He is today the reference in terms of treatment of manga and animation news thanks to his freedom of tone and his expert analysis. This collection brings together the 100 Japanese animated films that have made history by specifying its qualities and numerous production anecdotes. Written by a team of experts, in partnership with AnimeLand, this ideal animathèque is as essential for the novice who will be able to discover films according to his tastes as for the die-hard fan who will hasten to take up the challenge of watching the 100 films of the selection.
  16. Art Theatre Guild of Japan (ATG)'s icon

    Art Theatre Guild of Japan (ATG)

    Favs/dislikes: 16:0. Art Theatre Guild (ATG) was a film production company in Japan that started in 1961 and ran through to the mid-1980s, releasing mostly Japanese New Wave films. ATG began as an independent agency which distributed foreign films in Japan. With the decline of the major Japanese film studios in the 1960s, an "art house" cinema group formed around ATG and the company moved into distributing Japanese works rejected by the major studios. By 1967 ATG was assisting with production costs for a number of new Japanese films.

    Asia Shock: Horror and Dark Cinema from Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, and Thailand

    Favs/dislikes: 58:0. A viewer's guide to accompany the book of the same name by Patrick Galloway. The list features every title reviewed in the book, in the order in which they appear.

  20. Cinemaya's Greatest Asian Films's icon

    Cinemaya's Greatest Asian Films

    Favs/dislikes: 28:0. In 1998, Cinemaya asked 34 critics (mostly Asian critics) to list their 10 favorite Asian films. Cinemaya published all of these lists in issue #41 of the magazine. #1 Tokyo Story appeared on 20 of the lists. This is a list of films that appeared on at least 2 lists. See [url=https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0AhCbA3xledPhdGNGLXJ5VmtlZl94R015NDNwWEgxbnc]this spreadsheet[/url] for vote counts. 6 of the critics listed "The Apu Trilogy" without specifying an individual film, so I counted each trilogy vote as a vote for all 3 films. You can see some of the top 10 lists in this [url=http://books.google.com/books?id=lZZ-mxaqP6IC&pg=PT416]Google book preview[/url].

    Donald Richie's A Hundred Years of Japanese Film

    Favs/dislikes: 67:0. Called "the dean of Japan's arts critics" by Time magazine, Richie takes us from the inception of Japanese cinema at the end of the nineteenth century, through the achievements of Kurosawa, Mizoguchi, and Ozu, then on to the notable works of contemporary filmmakers. This revised edition includes analyses of the latest trends in Japanese cinema, such as the revival of the horror genre, and introduces today's up-and-coming directors and their works. This list is from the 'Selective Guide to Dvds and Videos' included at the back of the book, where Richie provided capsule reviews of the major subtitled Japanese films commercially available in DVD and VHS formats.
