3. A Silent Voice-
We love all the movies equally but, this one has to be one of the favorites of all time. Many beautiful movies emerged during the year 2016. A Silent Voice handles topics like tormenting, blame, peer pressure, and kinship excellently. The main characters of the movie are Shouya Ishida and Shouko Nishimiya. Shouya and Shouko start out as classmates at the beginning of the movie. Shouya focuses on Shouko who is an international student and is hard of hearing.
Shouko ends up leaving the school due to the torment of Shouya and his classmates. When the instructors start searching for the reason, Shouya’s classmates, turn up against him. Overpowered by regret, Shouya turns up to be a secluded teen who seeks to apologize to Shouko. They end up meeting at the later part of the story and end up falling in love. Shouya even manages to apologize to Shouko for his behavior. We’ll let the end remain a mystery for now. A Silent Voice is the best romantic anime, sad movie of all time.
4. Whisper of the Heart-
Hayao Miyazaki, a renowned animation master wrote the script for Whisper of the Heart. The film follows the story of a young girl, an aspiring writer who meets an ambitious guy who dreams of being a luthier. While visiting Senji, she discovers an antique shop, owned by Senji’s grandad.
She draws inspiration from a statue in the antique store and moves forward to write a story about a cat-shaped sculpture coming to life. The young guy and the girl fall in love with each other and work simultaneously towards achieving their independent goals.
This is definitely not your typical romantic movie. The story revolves around the love story of two boys who meet at the upcoming chorus festival. Rihito Sajo is an honor student who enrolled in his high school with a perfect score on the entrance exam. Hikaru Kusakabe is a part of a band and is incredibly popular among the girls.
Sounds poles apart doesn’t it? Who would have thought they would cross paths and fall in love with each other? (We gave away the entire story with these questions lol). After school, these two regularly meet and Hikaru helps Rihito to improve his singing skills where their feelings for each other slowly grow and peak when least expected.
6. 5 centimeters per second-
The best part about Makoto Shinkai’s movie is that he creates such beautiful stories using simple topics. When you first watch the movie, it will seem like another movie to you but, as you continue to explore and understand it, you’ll realize that it’s far from normal.
The story revolves around two best friends who grew apart with time. The two main protagonists of the movie, Akari and Takaki were inseparable as kids but the distance between them grows as their families moved apart. One day, Takaki embarks on a journey to visit his old friend. The film tells the story from the perspective of two friends and from the perspective of the people they meet along the way.
Each one of us holds our own beliefs and desires close to our heart and most of the time, things don’t go along as the way we wanted them to be. Two people can fall in love within 5 seconds, minutes, or, hours and also fall out of love within this time. Sometimes, we cling to our beliefs and desires but, reality doesn’t always support it the same way, and then our heartbreaks. This movie teaches us that one should not think of these incidents as the end of the journey but a part of the journey and that two persons are meant for each other only for a certain amount of time.
