Disney is forever synonymous with cartoons and animation, and while the recent Pixar films (Pixar is owned by Disney) have gathered critical acclaim, they’re still a far cry from some of the best Anime movies ever made.

During the late 80s and the 90s, Anime went from a niche viewership that was rarely available in the Western world, to almost mainstream it is today, mainly because of a few films that changed the way the Western audience looked at animes.

Here are ten anime movies that surpass virtually anything Disney has made, including the Pixar films.

10: 5CM Per Second (2007, IMDB link)
9: Cowboy Bebop (2001, IMDB link)
8: Tokyo GodFathers (2003, IMDB link)
7: Princess Mononoke (1997, IMDB link)
6: Paprika (2006, IMDB link)
5: Howl’s Moving Castle (2004, IMDB link)
4: Ghost in The Shell (1995, IMDB link)
3: Grave of The Fireflies (1988, IMDB link)

Surpass in story quality, revenue, artistry?

I'd expect a few people here to slam anime, but whatever. I've seen most of those movies, and most of them are pretty damn good. Cowboy Bebop on there kinda suprised me. The movie really wasn't that great compaired to the show.

Never saw that one. Berserks gotta be my favorite, followed by Cowboy Bebop.

Perhaps it was because of a hallucinogenic additive, but I saw Fantastic Planet when it premiered in 1973 and was pretty impressed.

Most anime is just way too bizarre. Ghost in the Shell was excellent, however. I liked the TV series, too.

Where's Dragon Ball Z?

While Dragon Ball Z was entertaining for a while, when it got to the point when only 10 minutes would pass in a span of 5 episodes, it got kinda worn down.
