Kids and toddlers, their parents and their grannies, all of us like anime films. Why do we like them so much? Various people give various answers. Children like the fairy tale stories, their moving bright pictures, and their dazzling characters, with whom they befriend and associate with. Parents like them, for, at least, a small break, when they could forget about all their humdrum and schumdrum life problems. And grannies like anime, because of their grand children. As our grandkid once said to us, “From all my relatives, I love my grandma Oksana most of all.” On our question “Why?”, which we asked together almost simultaneously, he answered simply, “We see the animated cartoons and anime films together.”

Mybe, it has some secret, which I failed to discover.

Surely, we could continue our list of the best anime fillers for a long time. The list is very long. Every year dozens of them are produces on various studious. Nevertheless, it is desirable not to watch of them, and not to turn, in such a way, into an anime seeing couch potato, but to be selective a bit. Some of them have excessive number of the scenes of violence, some of them are too aggressive, some of the them are too weird so far.
I think that just only the best ones are better to see, especially those which give catching stories about true friendship, noble romance, true love and heroic fighters who fight for the right things. Such anime film, to my mind, are the best. They could be seen in a family circle, they could be discussed with all your family members. And, those, which penetrated deep in the souls of your children, you could remember for long years. And you could mention them even while chewing the fat, remembering the kid years of your children, who turned into teenagers, and young adults. So, do not forget about anime fillers, they not only entertain but they also make your family relations closer.
