This is just my  personal choice . I could write pages on each of these films but for you guys I like to keep it sort and digestive .There are some great 80’s titles out there I still haven’t got around to watch  . My advice if you are starting to get into anime dont cast away the past as it properly the best quality ,especially for its time. If yourself have any personal recommendations , leave them them in the  the comment box below .
