Children who Chase Lost Voices or Journey to Agartha (Hoshi o Ou Kodomo in Japanese literally meaning Children Who Chase Stars) came out in 2011 in Japan. It is written, produced and directed by Makoto Shinkai. This is the same man that did Garden of Word. (which if you have not seen, go watch it) Actually any thing by Shinkai would be fine, I have never been disappointed with his movies.

Then read or watch at least one of there works, trust me there is a whole library to choose from. Cliff note about them, they are an all female mangaka group that have been producing original manga since 1989. Cardcaptor Sakura is just one one their many many works, that came out in 1996. The anime came out in 1998 and the movie came out in 1999.
