โšช BAREFOOT GEN (1983) โšชย

โšช ANGELโ€™S EGG (1985) โšชย 

In a surreal, deserted world, a girl walks aroundwith a large egg. That doesn’t seem like a premise on which to base an entire animated feature film, but in Mamoru Oshii’sย Angel’s Eggย it succeeds very convincingly.ย Angel’s Eggย is an anime like no other. With virtually no dialogue, the film takes the viewer into a world characterized by its symbolism.

โšช REDLINE (2009) โšช

What contains more car violence than eleven Fast & Furious films combined? Yes, the anime Redline! Directed by Takeshi Koike, this car racing anime is an adrenaline rush. We follow the story of JP, a rebellious racer who competes in the galaxy’s deadliest and most illegal race, the Redline. Redline fits within the booming sports anime market, a subgenre that is very successful in Japan. But the film also draws inspiration from the games world and is therefore part Formula 1 and part Carmageddon, with a touch of Wacky Races.

โšช STREETFIGHTER II โ€“ THE ANIMATED MOVIE (1994) โšช

Time for pulp! Remember, it was 1992 and we only wanted one thing: to play Street Fighter II! Ryu, E. Honda, Chun-Li and Dhalsim had a huge impact on the gaming world: fighting games would never be the same again. In 1994, Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie, directed by Gisaburล Sugii, was released. The plot revolves around the intense rivalry between street fighters Ryu and Ken and their confrontation with the evil M. Bison, who is looking for the best fighter in the world.
