    Sea Prince and the Fire Child

    Really one of the unsung masterpieces of 20th century surrealism, Masami Hata's second film with Sanrio retells Romeo & Juliet using only paint and symbols, and could have forgone dialogue altogether as its beautiful orchestral score delivers all auditory storytelling needed. Had it only lost 15 or so minutes to the cutting room floor, Sirius no Densetsu would doubtlessly rival Tonari no Totoro and Tenshi no Tamago on a list of gorgeously animated dreams.
