The animation is more of a dynamic medium of representing ideas than it is a genre. From Disney to Manga, not only kids but adult of every age enjoy the occasional animated movies to refresh their minds. The subtle growth of animation in mainstream cinema is changing the landscape of entertainment world and is also changing the way of expressing stories. The computer-animated movies are often represented to reach out to a huge number of audience with a message or moral in the most creative way possible.

In Cartoon movies, we see brightly coloured characters and imageries posses abilities beyond any human being are capable of, and those characters have potential to speak to every age group of people. These movies show us that one's imaginations can do wonders in bringing certain characters alive on screen. Isn't it amazing to able to see the stories of an imaginative and creative world?

Hollywood has produced some of the best animation movies in the recent times while Japan, other Asian countries rule the international arena of Anime movies. 2017, 2018 animated movies like Coco, Peter Rabbit, Despicable Me 3, Incredibles 2 have won the hearts of the audience and minted huge amounts at the box office.

Speaking about Indian cinema, Bollywood has tried its luck in animated movies like Chhota Bheem Aur Krishna, Motu Patlu: King of Kings, Hanuman, Bal Ganesh. etc but they didn't receive a great response. South Indian film industries like Tollywood and Kollywood try their luck with animation movies now and then. Tamil film Kochadaiyaan starring Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone was one such attempt which ended up as a big failure.

Here we have compiled a list of 75 best anime movies of all time. Be it is marvel or dc animated movies or Japanese Anime movies you can find it all here.
