More and more anime movies are getting shown here in Southeast Asia these days, and with some anime movies showing in Japan next year, we can’t help but get excited at the prospects of seeing them. And with that, we’ve made a list of five anime movies from Japan that we are excited to see.

Mazinger Z The Movie: INFINITY

Mazinger Z has always been the quintessential Super Robot anime. The franchise has thrilled multiple generations, and this movie is bound to introduce a new one to the franchise. The movie celebrates 40 years of Go Nagai’s legendary manga, and with advancements in animation technology being applied in making this film, this one promises to be exciting to watch.

Girls und Panzer das Finale

As the title suggests, das Finale will be serving as Girls und Panzer’s conclusion. It will be divided into six parts, with the first film premiering in Japan on December 9th. The movie is also planning to make a  4DX/MX4D screening in Japan.

The Seven Deadly Sins Movie

Aside from the upcoming second season of Seven Deadly Sins (not the ecchi one), Nakaba Suzuki’s hit shounen manga is also getting itself an anime movie. However, not much is known about the film yet, but we’re still pretty excited anyway.

Godzilla: Planet of Monsters

Gen Urobuchi writing a Godzilla story, with Netflix streaming the anime globally. Nuf said.

Macross Delta the Movie: Passionate Walkure

This anime movie will be recompiling a few scenes from the hit Macross Delta TV anime. However, what makes this movie remake special is that it will be adding new scenes to tell a different story, much like what they did for the two Macross Frontier films.

So there you have it, our picks for anime movies we’re definitely most excited about. What other anime movies do you wanna see? Will you watch it on the big screen if it hits your country? Let us know in the comments below.
