* There are a total of 12 ''OnePiece'' movies so far: ** Eight of them are [[NonSerialMovie Non Serial Movies]]: Movie 1 takes place before Sanji joins, [[Anime/ClockworkIslandAdventure Two]] and [[Anime/ChoppersKingdomOnTheIslandOfStrangeAnimals Three]] before Alabasta ([[ContinuitySnarl although neither Vivi nor Robin appear]]), [[Anime/DeadEndAdventure Four]], [[Anime/TheCursedHolySword Five]], [[Anime/BaronOmatsuriAndTheSecretIsland Six]] and [[Anime/TheGiantMechanicalSoldierOfKarakuriCastle Seven]] between Alabasta and Water 7, and [[Anime/OnePiece3DStrawHatChase Eleven]] just after Thriller Bark. The 11th movie is notable as the first (and only) OnePiece movie to be rendered in [[AllCGICartoon 3D CGI]] instead of hand drawn animation.

* ''Franchise//PrettyCure'' has roughly one movie of this sort per series. (If [[SixthRanger Hikari]] hadn't been in the first movie, it would have been ''exactly'' one per series.) Like the ''Anime/SailorMoon'' movies mentioned above, all of them are disconnected from the parent series' plots but seem to take place somewhere along the way.

* ''Franchise/DragonBall'' has had 18 movies released theatrically in Japan (4 for Dragon Ball, 14 for Dragon Ball Z). The majority of them do not fit into the series continuity and are usually basic re-imaginings of the series sagas (Movie 7 featured three more androids made by Dr. Gero. Sound familiar?). In addition to these, there were 3 made for TV movies (that do fit into the series continuity), 2 [=OVAs=] and 3 live-action adaptations (with only one being more or less official). So far, the only movies considered canon is Battle of Gods and the upcoming one.

* Similarly, there are ten ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' movies. The [[Anime/NarutoTheMovieNinjaClashInTheLandOfSnow first]] [[Anime/NarutoTheMovieLegendOfTheStoneOfGelel three]] [[Anime/NarutoTheMovieGuardiansOfTheCrescentMoonKingdom films]] are set in Part 1; the first takes place before the Sasuke Retrevial arc, the latter two sometime during the filler arcs. The seven Shippuden movies seem to take place respectively [[Anime/NarutoShippudenTheMovie before Sai's introduction]],[[Anime/NarutoShippudenTheMovieBonds before Sasuke killing Orochimaru]], [[Anime/NarutoShippudenTheMovieInheritorsOfTheWillOfFire sometime after Asuma's death]], [[Anime/NarutoShippudenTheMovieTheLostTower 20 years in the past]], [[Anime/NarutoTheMovieBloodPrison some nebulous time around Pain's invasion and the 5 Kage Summit]], [[Anime/NarutoTheMovieRoadToNinja some nebulous time before the 4th Shinobi World War]], and [[Film/Naruto7TheLast 2 years after the war]]. The first nine are [[NonSerialMovie Non Serial Movies]], with the tenth being explicitly stated to be canon.

* ''{{Robotech}}'' was set to have a movie which used footage from ''Anime/MegaZone23'', but a combination of ExecutiveMeddling and poor reception in test screenings caused it to be shelved. * TheNineties ''Manga//SailorMoon'' anime had three, one in the second season (''Sailor Moon R The Movie''), one in the third (''Sailor Moon S The Movie''), and a final in the fourth (''Sailor Moon [=SuperS=] The Movie''). None have anything to do with their corresponding seasons but seem to take place in just 'somewhere' in them. The S movie is the only one directly based on anything, a standalone manga chapter, The Lover of Princess Kaguya, Naoko Takeuchi wrote purposefully for adaption... there are quite a few plot diversions between them though. Oddly enough, the 1st and Sailor Stars seasons never got movies for them...

** It does fit in passably, considering the episodic nature of ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' - a reasonably long amount of time could pass between any two given episodes.

* ''FairyTail'' has one movie (''FairyTailTheMovie:PhoenixPriestess''), and a second is in the works, the latter being written by writer Hiro Mashima himself. The first movie also had a tie in written by him.

* The ''VisionOfEscaflowne'' movie radically altered characters and motivations, hitting similar themes in a very different way than the series.

* ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' has the original 1986 movie, which was basically a BloodierAndGorier big-budget version of the earlier TV series produced by Toei (who also did the TV series); the ''Legends of the True Savior'' movies from the late [=2000's=], which also retold events from the manga, but with new [[AdaptationExpansion story elements]]; and the LiveActionAdaptation [[Film/FistOfTheNorthStar from 1995]].

*** WordOfGod stated that the movie is meant to show us [[spoiler: the Bebop crew's last full mission together, before Ed's departure and Spike's death.]] That places it squarely in between episodes 23 and 24.

Don't let that fool you though. In Gurren-hen the beginning of the movie shows [[spoiler: Lord Genome's rise to Spiral Knight and fall to despotic tyrant.]] Then it's pretty much the same until:[[spoiler: Adine, Guame, Cytomander, and the new general: Viral (Yes that Viral, complete with his own Enkidu-daiganzan) all attack the Dai Gurren-dan at once. Simon later snaps out of his wangst after trying to climb Suzaku to save Nia. (Suzaku is at least a mile in the air at this point) The generals then combine their mechs to form the Dai-Gan Doten-Kaizan which falls after a combined attack by the entire Dai Gurren-dan (GIGA DRILL BREAKER! DAI GURREN-DAN SHOOT)]] Lagann-hen then takes the last episode of the series and raises it to the power of itself after: [[spoiler: The ENTIRE Dai Gurren-dan (Only Kittan died, the rest of the {{Mauve Shirt}}s survived) get their own Tengen Toppa Ganmen. (Even Nia) After Lord Genome converts the Big Band Storm all of the ganmen combine to form SUPER Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. From Super Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann's drill comes Tengen Toppa's drill. From Tengen Toppa's drill comes Chouginga Gurren-Lagann's drill. From Chouginga's drill comes Arc Gurren-Lagann's drill. And from Arc's drill comes Gurren-Lagann. Viral does a Cannonball Attack. And then Simon and the Anti-Spiral fistfight. Then Simon turns his own blood into a drill and goes straight through the Anti-Spiral.]]
