    I want to hurt Asuka! End of Evangelion is overrated! Almost everyone from that series can go get burned and get lost!

    You can't watch the Diasappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya as a stand alone film. You need to watch the series to understand the movie. Such as why Kyon doesn't always like going on adventures with Haruhi, Why Kyon got mad when Ryoko Asakura returned, why Kyon traveled back in time and why Yuki was tired of reliving those two weeks of summer over and over again.

    After the literal endless EIGHT bullshit, I was not wanting any more Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. But the movie was pretty good.

    Suzumiya movie was like reading the novel on the screen. It was so faithful to the source material that I couldn't believe it. An amazing movie that deserved first place!

    I think the endless eight might have killed Haruhi. Sure it's an original concept. But who in the right mind would sit through 8 full episodes of the same day being repeated but with minor changes each time. Like the outfits change each time.... It's pure insanity and a suffering of the mind.

    The lack of Tamako Love Story makes me very sad. One of my favorite movies ever, let alone anime films. It is the single most true-to-life adolescent romance out there, and everyone needs to watch it.

    I blame the Endless Eight for the end of the Haruhi anime. It was an interesting experiment, and I'm proud to say I've sat through the whole thing, but it was still a pain in the ass that ate up half of season two, and left it with only two other stories to tell. No wonder we haven't seen a continuation. But I still want one.

    I would personally choose Dragon Ball Z's 8th movie : (Broly : the legendary super Saiyan) over battle of gods or any other movie, but I understand why you did not choose this master piece as some people with poor taste hate that movie and would post a lot of negative comments about it.
    personally I think Broly's backstory is the best villain story ever, you can not identify with that problem, and you can not comprehend it, because you are not as evil as Broly, and you power is not Maximum.

    Battle of Gods was decent, the fight was even better done in the anime late and the universe 6 saga tournament was also good but beside that rest (fillers, resurrection of f, trunks arc) are worse than GT.
