Let's get started!
Renton’s life is thrust into adventure and mystery when an interstellar mech pilot on the run crash lands into his home. Together with a group of renegades, they fight to oppose a military force threatening their livelihood.
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
When Makoto discovers a device that allows her to leap into the past, she uses it to relive and redo events. Once she realizes there’s a limit to her time jumps, and that her actions have consequences, she tries to use her newfound power to correct her mistakes.
Still grieving the death of her father, Momo tries to adapt to this major life change with the help of three yokai, the supernatural creatures of Japan.
Loosely adapted from The Little Mermaid, an aquatic girl with a siren voice comes ashore to join a band. The animation in this film can be fast and loose when it wants to be, and it fits the friendly tone of the story. It introduces new mythology to existing mermaid lore, and Lu's charm easily matches Ponyo of Ghibli fame.
During a time of turmoil in a fantastic realm, an immortal being discovers a foundling child and raises him as her son.
