2012’s most recommendable anime and superhero movies


Here’s a nice year-end wrap-up survey, goo Ranking looking at the animated and superhero movies that people would most recommend.


Between the 5th and 7th of November 2012 1,049 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 58.8% of the sample were female, 10.2% in their teens, 14.6% in their twenties, 27.5% in their thirties, 25.1% in their forties, 11.0% in their fifties, and 11.7% aged sixty or older. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.

I’ve seen none of the Japanese ones on the list, but I enjoyed Brave, missed Puss in Boots as it had a very limited dubbed release, but I just saw Frankenweenie recently on a plane, and I thought it was really hilarious. I presume it is low scoring because it wasn’t released until after the survey was conducted.

Here’s a trailer for the top film:
