Against insurmountable odds, Cloud, Tifa, Barrett, Cid and the rest of the gang must band together one last time to defeat Kadaj and save the world from annihilation.
Was it the computer-animated effects? Was it the hardcore fights? Or maybe it was the adventurous feeling the anime had? Whatever the reason, FF VII: AC and DB: Path to Power both have all these aspects. Don't be scared of getting called a fanboy. The DB movie is a much shorter and better retelling of the DB series, the FF VII movie has the usual cool characters supported by the usual ground-breaking animation. They are both worth seeing!
Kagome is a normal high school girl who falls into a well, transporting her back in time to the feudal era. Upon her arrival to this world, she mercifully unleashes Inuyasha, a half demon. As if this isn't enough, she also discovers that she is the bearer of the Shikon no Tama, a jewel of great spiritual power, a jewel which has just shattered into a million shards. Now, along with Miroku the priest, Sango the demon hunter, and Shippou the mischievious fox-demon, they must set out to find the Shikon shards and defeat the evils of the demon Naraku.
InuYasha and DB: Path to Power have quite a few things in common: nice fights, an adventure to get stronger, a story that is cut into several parts, and of course a very strong male lead. InuYasha adds some romance and comedy, but that doesn't make it less appealing to DB fans. These two anime will definitely be liked by the same fans.
Long ago the infamous Gol D. Roger was the strongest and most powerful pirate on the seas. As he was about to be executed he revealed that he hid all of his wealth, including the legendary treasure known as One Piece, on an island at the end of the Grand Line - a treacherous and truly unpredictable sea. Monkey D. Luffy is a spirited, energetic and somewhat dim-witted young man with a very big dream: to find One Piece and become the Pirate King! However Luffy is no ordinary boy, as when he was younger he ate one of the Devil's Fruits and gained its power to become a Rubber Man. Now in this grand age of pirates Luffy sets out to gather a crew and sail to the most dangerous sea in the world so that he can fulfill his dream... and maybe even his appetite!
There are plenty of anime where a character with great powers fights his way through a load of villains while becoming stronger. Yet there aren't plenty that add such a relaxed, fun and adventurous feeling to it. Both One Piece and the 4th DB movie are pure enjoyment aimed at the same fans.
In another world, there exist many countries, each with different cultures, customs, and traditions. From technological marvels to folk legends, each location yields a vast wealth of insight of its people: their hopes and their dreams, their failures and fears. Kino is a traveler whose goal is to visit as many new places as possible, learning about others' ways of life, but also making sure to stay clear of their affairs. Together with the talking motorrad Hermes, Kino sets out to explore the beautiful world and meet its inhabitants, wherever they may be.
Both of these titles deal a lot with traveling to strange lands and meeting a variety of different people. Kino travels a lot for the sake of traveling; and while Dragon Ball has more action, in this movie there is an emphasis on dragon ball hunting, and to do this Goku travels just like Kino.
