    My favourite animation is the one from Spider-Man into the spider verse. It literally looks like it was ripped from a comic book. Gorgeous!

    I personally think that Isao’s films are so much more beautiful in its content and emotion expression than many of Miyazaki’s. Not all, but mostly.
    Isaac is too underated.

    This is a very long debate of opinion about best or top anime. But honestly you didn't really explore a lot of animated film.

    Edit: but I'm just a simple man if it's animated film I automatically like.
