I have all of these movies, I think, with the exception to a few. I also pre-ordered Sakasama no Patema (ships on 10/20). Some of these movie may have been subbed in Chinese, unfortunately. But most are subbed in English.

Rurouni Kenshin - Kyoto daika hen [Keishi Ohtomo]­

This is the opening song for the original anime:­

This is 'Heart of Sword' with movie trailer:­

This is an anime super classic. I'd put it on the level of Yuu Yuu Hakusho and Dragon Ball Z.
