The Summer of Harry Potter was a huge success in that I read all of the Harry Potter books in succession. It was also a huge failure because it took me three seasons, not one, to do so. This year, I’m setting my goals a little more realistically.
This is officially the Summer of Good Anime Movies. This largely came about because I get some internal shame when I remember that I’ve seen zero Hayao Miyazaki movies. I’m going to correct that, and then I’m going to watch some other critically acclaimed and popular anime movies that I also haven’t seen. I’ve picked 10, but the actual selections could change if I can’t rent some of these from digital streaming services, or if something really hot comes out over the summer. The good news here is that I could feasibly watch all of these over a long weekend, but I’ll try to spread them out. This list isn’t in any particular order.
