Wow, this was a toughy. What a challenge this thread poses! 😅
I like it. 😉

I've intentionally left some of the more obvious choices out of my list to make way for a few obscure gems. In the final reckoning, I've picked six films, three TV series and three "others".
  • The Case of Hana and Alice (film, 2015)
  • Giovanni's Island (film, 2014)
  • I Want to Eat Your Pancreas (film, 2018)
  • Patema Inverted (film, 2013)
  • The Wind Rises (film, 2013)
  • The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (film, 2010) if it's allowed to count under @NoSurprises' rules, otherwise it would have its place taken by...
  • The Boy and the Beast (film, 2015)
  • Kill Me Baby (TV series, 2012)
  • Kill la Kill (TV series, 2013)
  • Punch Line (TV series, 2015)
  • Black★Rock Shooter (OVA, 2010)
  • The Dragon Dentist (TV special, 2017)
  • Japan Animator Expo [the whole thing] (ONA, 2014)

As a bit of a disclaimer, there are some key titles in my collection that could perhaps have been contenders but that I simply haven't watched yet — ones such as Made in Abyss, Girls' Last Tour or Flip Flappers. There was also one short film by Production I.G that pained me to leave out of the list, and I can't even name it, because that would count as an honourable mention!

It was Li'l Spider Girl from 2012. 😛
