Willie Wonker and the Chocolate Factory - I was a well behaved boy before, but that story made me determined to be better. Because all I was focused on back then were sweets.

Surprisingly, Star Wars Episode 1, because Darth Maul , obviously. They were doing reruns of old episodes before the release of The Force Awakens, and Darth Maul was an old flame. Long story short, I began exercising regularly, cut bad food, got fit , lost weight . Who's ever seen the movie and Darth Maul, will understand.

I would say Mobile Suits Gundam 00 -A wakening of the Trailblazer- is the best, and I highly recommend it. Even if it's SF animation movie, it makes an appeal to the importance of understanding between humans through wars between humans. This animation is serialized, 1st season and 2nd season which respectively consist of 25 stories, and finally became a movie. So, I suggest you to watch 1st and 2nd season before that movie if you'd like since you can understand each character's background, relation between them, stories, etc, which make you feel touched.
