4.) Final Fantasy: Advent Children
This has to be one of the most memorable anime films, ever
Taking place after the events of Final Fantasy VII, the world begins to recover from devastation by working hard towards a new future.
Although, a new threat emerges as three individuals strive to resurrect Sephiroth by using the remains of the extraterrestrial villain, Jenova. One man, with the help of others, seeks to end the destruction and chaos that will be brought upon everyone by the three individuals.
With all of their efforts, they fail to stop them and now have to face the evil that is Sephiroth.
This has to be one of my favorite anime films.
Taking place in the future where a new and revolutionary psychotherapy treatment has been conceived called PT. With the help of a device called DC Mini, the therapy can act as a dream machine/detective in order to enter into the minds of others and explore their unconscious thoughts.
Before a bill can be passed to allow such a technique to be used on the public, a prototype was stolen which sent the research facility into a frenzy.
If in the wrong hands, the device can be devastating to others with the ability to completely erase a dreamers personality while asleep. Scary!
