I hope someone can reply with more information about the content and/or quality of each:
- as I recall, this ranked highly in one of the Best of the 2000s threads. = This is a good show that definitely deserves at least a single watch. It's slow, beautiful, and sweet. I don't think that I will ever watch it again, but I am glad that I watched it at least once. It definitely is one of the best produced shows out there.The Garden of Words
= I have mixed feelings about this one. If you are just in it for the animation and beautiful artwork, you are in for a treat. If you want anything more than that (let's say a decent plot), you are going to get frustrated. The main character made me nearly go mad with his love story with the teacher. The show as a whole seemed a little self-centered.The Place Promised in Our Early Days
= I was really excited from the summary, but the movie fell a little short for me when I considered my expectations. It definitely was good and sad, but it just lacked that perfect mix for me. It wasn't terribly slow, but I can't say that it was exactly great with pacing.Voices of a Distant Star
- I think I've heard a lot of people say they like this, but I can't remember anything else about it. = You feel bored and then you feel sad. You need patience to watch this film and appreciate it. I had patience when I watch it, but I know now that that patience has been used up with the first watch. Definitely one of the saddest ones on this list though.Children Who Chase Lost Voices
= I absolutely loved this show. What puts it above most of the titles in this list is that the plot was actually exciting. I loved the ending, the drama, and the art wasn't bad either.
