11 Animated Movies to Never Watch Without Your Siblings

Siblings are the friends you have been born with. Even though sometimes you feel like hugging them with love or come near to strangling them in frustration, these are the individuals that make life colorful and the people you cannot live without. They are your go-to peeps for anything from advice to friendly fights to mischief. In honor of the precious times we get to share with our siblings, here are eleven animated movies that capture the essence of sibling-hood and that you should never watch without your brothers or sisters chilling beside you.

1. Grave of the Fireflies

This is probably one of the most heart-breaking sibling stories yet. Going through the extreme hardships Seita and Setsuko had to face, mixed in with the joy the siblings found in each others company during the trying times of WWII, this is most certainly something to never watch without your brother or sister.

2. Brother Bear

An underrated Disney movie, as can be inferred from the title, this film is filled with ideas of brotherhood and the special bond between siblings. It also highlights the idea of forgiveness in family and that sibling relations do not always have to be tied by blood (or even species!).

3. Lilo and Stitch

"Ohana means family...", and this is most certainly one of those films that define family in terms of sisterhood! The ways Nani tries to make life easy and sweet for her little sister and Lilo's reciprocation of those feelings surely will hit home.

4. My Neighbor Totoro

Two sisters, a cat bus and a giant forest spirit. My Neighbor Totoro follows the heart-warming tale of Satsuki and Mei as they find themselves going on the most unimaginable adventures of their lives, which, in the end, grows their sisterly bond to great lengths.

5. Brave

If you and your siblings are known to be partners in crime, then this is a film to see together. The mischief caused by the faithfully supporting little brothers of Merida and Merida herself are sure to remind you of the good memories you hold with your siblings in causing trouble together!

6. The Incredibles

What if you and your siblings had super powers? What kinds of adventures would you get into? Who would be your villains? If short on ideas, this movie will hopefully provide some potential fuel for your imaginations to run wild!

7. Big Hero 6

Tragic yet filled with "feels," a bittersweet story about a boy finding his brother in his brother's creation that helps those in need.

8. Kiki's Delivery Service

Though there are no actual siblings in this movie, the relationship between Kiki and Ursla can be defined as a sweet sisterly love.

9. Lion King

Okay, this is probably one of the worst sibling relations, but, at least watching it together with your siblings, you can be thankful that your sibling rivalries don't get this much out of hand (I hope)!

While the last two aren't movies (unless, of course, you binge watch them!), they most certainly deserve a place in animations to never see without your siblings!

10. Avatar: The Last Airbender

Between the hilarious yet loving dynamic of Sokka and Katara and the cold rivalry between Azula and Zuko, this show is filled with the tiny details of sibling-hood that makes having siblings one of the best things in the world.

11. Fullmetal Alchemist/ Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

(Note: Fullmetal Alchemist differs from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood in that the latter follows the manga plot line while the former presents a whole new story with almost all of the characters from the manga. Also, if interested, following the series end of Fullmetal Alchemist is the movie, Fullmetal Alchemist: Conquerer of Shamballah.)

Saving the best for last! If this doesn't show sibling bonds to its highest glory, I don't know what does. Fullmetal Alchemist/ Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is the tale of two inseparable brothers who are on a dangerous yet adventure-filled journey to restore their bodies after a tragic incident. These brothers would sacrifice their lives for the others well being if need be and nothing can break the special relationship they have with one another. In my opinion, this is a top must-see with your siblings if you haven't yet already done so!

So, get your pillows, grab some popcorn and start reminiscing memories and plotting out new adventures as you and your siblings enjoy these films together!

As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.
