For the past 40 years, Hayao Miyazaki has long been considered one the greatest anime directors of all time. And even though he still finds ways to keep churning out films, it's inevitable that his retirement is fast approaching. But the worldwide phenomenon of Your Name, which even surpassed Spirited Away as the highest-grossing anime to date, proves that Makoto Shinkai is a director deserving of that title. Whether you're awestruck by the gorgeous animation, bopping to the awesome Radwimps OST, or crying your eyes out (the most common side-effect of watching a Shinkai film), his movies make an emotional impact on audiences everywhere. 

From his short films, like Someone's Gaze, to his new features, Weathering with You, this list ranks all of Shinkai's movies. Which are your favorites?
