I have a couple of reasons why I hate this question. Firstly, what I consider to be my favorite anime at one point may be completely different from the one I consider to be my favorite at another point. It completely depends on not only my mood but also the circumstances that I'm going through at that time. So, really, the question of "What's your favorite anime?" for me is really complicated to answer.
I always get a little nervous when beginning to review a movie and this one is no different. I really do hope that I can give it the recognition it deserves, particularly as a cult classic. I knew it should be a film that I would like, but I never expected to be so drawn into a story, so drawn into the film, as quickly as I have been.
