Nausicaa of the valley of the wind. this movie was my favorite growing up, for one thing the hero is a girl that actually does something! not the be pretty and cute crap or the uber girly stuff the other girl shows were in the 80's but actually stands up and fights for her people. Also the whole movie was just so creative! till this day I think it's one of Miyazaki's more under-rated works Second favorate is actually a new addition, I haven't been into anime since the early 2000's but every now and then a little show would grab my interest. Maou-sama (Sadao Maou) is a demon king that fled to the human world and currently is flipping burgers in Mac Donald. he lives on the edge of poverty but finds that he likes this simple life, nobody prosecuting him for being born a demon, no heroes or chosen ones and whatever money he has was earned. He's a bit silly most times but when push comes to shove he SHOVES. He's very protective of his friends (arch demons like Lucifer) and takes responsibility for their mistakes like a leader. The anime was only 12 episodes but it was packed with feelings that I followed the manga once it ended.
