Princess Budu sleeps, and dreams. She dreams of whimsical fairies and a wicked, restless beastial spirit. Her dream is one unmoored from identity and self - perhaps she is the fairy, perhaps those other fairies are other persons also. Also moving through her dream, always recurring in her thoughts is her lover Prince Kamar. The beastial spirit desires Budu; Kamar desires Budu, and she only has eyes for Kamar. Through her dream she floats and fades across an Arabian fantasia of minarets and mosques. These flickering moments, fleeting snatches of slumbered thought, are filled with an intoxicating, ethereal beauty.

In feudal Japan, evil spirits known as mononoke plague both households and the countryside, leaving a trail of fear in their wake. One mysterious person has the power to slay the mononoke where they stand; he is known only as the Medicine Seller, and he vanquishes the mononoke using the power of his Exorcism Sword. However, in order to draw his sword he must first understand the Form, Truth and Reason of the mononoke. Armed with a sharp wit and keen intellect, the Medicine Seller wanders from place to place, striking down the mononoke in his wake.

Watching either of these anime, you might think: Is there any other anime quite so wonderfully beautiful, so self-consciously artistic in its appearance? Well, here is another such title. To be fair, 1001 Nights is merely a short and one about a fleeting dream, while Mononoke is a full series with plot and character and so on - but if you enjoyed one, definitely consider watching the other as well.


Weak (yet considerate) guy finds himself surrounded by hot girls with supernatural powers that fight for his affection. Sekirei is more sweet love whereas R+V is silly love. However, I think they fall into the same category and would recommend looking into R+V if you like Sekirei.

Open Your Mind

Open Your Mind
  • Music Video (1 ep x 35 min)
  • 2005

Travel to a world inside a bubble where fantasy and technology mix with one another to form beautiful imagery. In the span of three acts, you’ll swim in the depths with sharks and whales; soar on the winds with alien birds; and run through fields with the creatures that live in harmony with their surroundings. The unique score is combined with stunning CGI and real life footage, gradually laying out the landscape of a world filled with life and beauty.

These short works of animation are meditative beauty, with a focus on imagery and music. Open Your Mind is the slower and more lenghtly of the two, but it's possible if you enjoyed one you may enjoy the other.
