Howl’s Moving Castle (2004)

Ramshackle in its construction but endlessly interesting. Just like its titular house, it’s a little hard to follow but there’s so much to explore and enjoy here, from the intriguing anti-nationalist themes (see the contrasting flag bookends) to the characters both nuanced (see Howl’s noble but immature hero; Sophie’s unique coming-of-age arc) and quirky (I heart Calcifer and Turnip-Head). Beautifully animated (every one of the numerous settings is stunning) and rich in both drama and humour.
