Animated feature films by Studio Ghibli. While Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is not officially created by Studio Ghibli, it's success was the reason the studio was founded, so it deserves a spot on the list.

The J-Film Pow-Wow has been going for nearly four years now and during that time we've reported on the annual Top Ten lists put out by various online and print sources and Chris, Bob, Marc, Matt and Eric have spent our fair share of time scouring and critiquing other people's Top 100 lists of Japanese films. It got to the point where we thought we'd put ourselves out there with our own list, something beyond our monthly Top Ten lists. With that in mind we pooled our collective movie-going experiences and have come up with the J-Film Pow-Wow's own Top 100 Japanese Films list.

Now, before you read on you should keep something in mind. This list was tabulated by all five of the Pow-Wow crew making lists of their own favorite Japanese films - not films we felt were historically important and not films that parroted other lists that have created the present canon of Japanese cinema. Our main concern was to come up with films that we held a real heartfelt love for. Once we drew up our lists we ranked them, assigned a points system and cross referenced all five to come up with this Top 100 list. There are some obvious picks ranking in obvious positions, there are some critically-favoured films in the Japanese film canon that didn't fare as well, and there are a lot of surprises. Those are the films on the list we're all most excited about.

[Updated 10/06/17]
Studio Ponoc just released Trailer #3 for Mary and The Witch's Flower. Looks awesome: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfCNyIQ6yzU

This is a comprehensive list of Studio Ghibli related people and their work.
It contains some older work by Miyazaki and Takahata which is everything from before Studio Ghibli's formation in 1985 (Yes, Nausicaä is actually not a Studio Ghibli Movie). Including Miyazaki's and Takahata's directorial debuts Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro and The Little Norse Prince as well as some well-known World Masterpiece Theater TV Series directed by them.

The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness is a feature film long, behind the scenes, documentary following the work at Studio Ghibli during the production of Miyazaki's and Takahata's final movies The Wind Rises and The Tale of the Princess Kaguya.
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24wViGZKVu8

Work by Studio Ghibli staff after the announcement to restructure the company in 2014:
Ronia the Robber's Daughter is a CG animated TV Series based on the children's book by Astrid Lindgren. Directed by Hayao Miyazaki's son Gorō Miyazaki, animated by Polygon Pictures and co-produced by Studio Ghibli.
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRRNrqqfMgA

The Red Turtle is another co-production, this time between the Dutch-British animator Michaël Dudok de Wit, German distribution company Wild Bunch and Studio Ghibli. The movie was nominated for 2017's Oscars in the category: Animated Feature Film.
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sw7BggqBpTk

Even though Miyazaki (once again) went into retirement 3 years ago he decided to come back and work on the animated short film Kemushi no Boro (Boro the Caterpillar) set to release in summer of 2017. Here are some clips taken during production:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4-6YI04IiE

After the restructuring announcement, part of the staff decided to create Studio Ponoc in 2015. The word Ponoc is Croatian for "midnight", it's meant to symbolize that a new day is starting. Here is the first trailer from their newly announced movie Mary and The Witch's Flower directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (Arrietty and Marnie) set to release sometime in 2017:

Thanks to all who’ve made this a very popular list, in spite of glitches causing dozens of fans to suddenly disappear :(

A big welcome to the land of cinematic wonders!

I’ve aimed for a rounded overview to include not only personal favourites but popular hits and international award winners, animé landmarks, avant-
garde films, the New Wave, erotic “pink films” and the great classics that are still the glory of world cinema.

Much of silent cinema before the 1930s has been lost, its Benshi narrators displaced but good finally to have the landmark film Souls on the Road on Mubi. In the 20s directors were able to learn their trade through prolific practice, aware of and encorporating developments in both the Soviet Union and the West… and then, what a wealth of wonders! Older masters: the unequalled aesthetic refinement of Mizoguchi, the charm of Shimizu, the quiet observational wisdom of Ozu, the tragically curtailed promise of Yamanaka, the balanced restraint of Naruse, the muscular humanism of Kurosawa… Then, a new generation from the late 50s, in full swing in the sexually freer 60s: the idealism of Kobayashi, the political bite of Oshima, the earthy subversion of Imamura, the cool of Suzuki and Masumura. the avant-garde Terayama.. So many to explore: Yoshida, Ichikawa Kon, Teshigahara, Shinoda, Wakamatsu, Kumai, the documentaries of Ogawa and Hara, the stop motion master Kawamoto, the blood soaked Fukasaku.. the rise of animé, with the international success of Studio Ghibli and Miyazaki’s beautiful flights of fancy, the spiky Tsukamoto, the popular appeal of Kitano, the prolific shocker Miike.. up to the present with Koreeda, Naomi Kawase, Sono, Kurosawa Kiyoshi… oh and i almost went without mentioning Samurai and Godzilla.

Hand-drawn. Computer graphics. Stop-motion. Oil paint, canvas by canvas, or stick figures, line by line. Animation isn’t a genre. It’s a medium, capable of telling any story and eliciting any emotion, from a toolbox as varied as any live-action filmmaker’s.

Now we present the 100 best Fresh animated movies ever (they had to be 60% or higher on the Tomatometer), drawing from all of cinema history.
