11. San, Mononoke Hime (1997)

I like anime movies. They are quite enjoyable and the best thing is that you don’t have to be invested in them for longer periods. So, if you just want a quick anime break go for a movie. This anime is really nice to watch. IT shows a conflict of interest between humans who want to advance their technology with little to no regards for nature while others who want to protect it. San is generally known as Princess Mononoke. Her raising was kind of like Mowgli. After being abandoned by her parents the wolf goddess Moro raised San as her own daughter. San is now the princes of the Beasts and Spirits and fights against those who try to harm the forest.
