Highlander: The Search for Vengeance is one of my favs along with Batman: Ninja, there is also Bleach the Movie 2: Diamond Dust Rebellion plus Metropolis that I like.
Spritted Away, I've seen, while its nicely animated, I find the story kind of, meh, just not something I really like, it kind of feels as if it should of been a short series instead of just a movie, to fully grasp the world its set in along with its characters
What Miyazaki films do you like? and HIghlander Search for Vengeance is a nice work from Yoshiaka Kawajari.
I don't really care about the director and that, I'm looking for good animation and good story telling when it comes to anime.
I'm sure you seen Princess Monononoke, Totoro, Nausicaa, Castle in the Sky, Kiki's Delivery Service, Howl's Moving Castle etc.
And since you like Highlander animated movie, seen Ninja Scroll, Wicked City and Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust from same director?
Er, no, I have Ninja scroll in a DVD boxset I got ages ago but I just never gotten around to watching it, its just gathering dust with some other things.
