In honor of Earth Day, I bring you my Top 5 Environmental Anime!
1) Tokyo Mew Mew - The villains repeatedly make comments like “Look what you’ve done to this planet…”, all the magical girls’ powers come from endangered species, and the main character and her love interest spend dates doing things like visiting endangered animal exhibits and cleaning up pollution. The manga also included extras discussing the real-life animals the characters were based on.
2) Origin: Spirits of the Past - This is a world where we’ve literally messed up nature so bad that it came to life and started fighting back. The call to action is laid on pretty thick. This movie wants you to go green! The trees are also drawn beautifully. I haven’t watched it in a long time, but it’s the perfect Earth Day movie.
3) Princess Mononoke - Industry vs nature is the biggest theme in this classic Miyazaki film. Majestic talking wolves and beautifully animated forest scenes make it a must-watch.
4) Mushi-shi - In this anime, mushi are just another form of life (like fauna, flora, etc.) trying to coexist with humans. Even though some pretty creepy horror things happen to the characters, it’s made clear that mushi aren’t evil, they’re just a part of nature. And they deserve to be protected, like other natural creatures. Also, more beautifully animated forest scenes!
5) Spice and Wolf - All of Horo’s problems start when people stop worshipping the wild, natural things of this world (like her) and start focusing on business and profit. And, once again, beautifully drawn nature scenes!
So, yeah, if you’re in a mood to see pretty scenes of the natural world and be reminded why we need to save it, these are my reccomendations!
