The phrase ‘anime you can watch with your girlfriend’ is typically associated with Hayao Miyazaki’s masterpieces, and that’s ok. After all, he’s brilliant.

 Metropolis (2001)

Detective Shunsaku Ban and his nephew Kenichi come to Metropolis to find Doctor Laughton, the man wanted for selling human organs. In the meantime, Laughton, under the direction of Duke Red, who runs the city, creates the first artificial man Tima, who looks exactly like Duke Red’s late daughter. Kenichi meets Tima, taking her for a simple girl, who can’t remember who she is.

Metropolis is based on the same-name manga, written by Osamu Tezuka in 1949. Tezuka is often called the ‘god of anime’ and officially considered the founder of the modern Japanese manga. Metropolis stands out not only with Tezuka’s distinguished artistic style, but also a deep story that touches upon social and racial inequality.
