Synopsis:

A lot can happen in a minute. Aliens can begin their invasion of Earth, only to be thwarted at the first step; cats can plot their revenge on their careless owners; and children can frolic in the fields with a giant robot. Ever wondered what the average day in the life of an animator is like? Or can a small pellet-spitting alien distract a young boy while he reads manga, in order to escape from his room? And will the machine that a small boy and his pet built allow him to steal a kiss from a girl? From following a group of young women recovering from heartbreak, to the owner of a music store who views his customers as little more than cash on legs, still “the clock ticks on and on in 60-second cycles.”

Genius Party

Genius Party
  • Movie (7 eps x 15 min)
  • 2007

Seven stories are told in seven very different ways. In a Dahli-esque Serengeti, a tale of a hunter and hunted unfolds. A young boy finds a useful device and is sucked into a futuristic battle. A slow-paced train ride takes two delinquent school children for a ride to the beach and down memory lane. And a baby travels through his dreams because of the ‘Happy Machine’ – amongst other tales.

Short, sweet and a deluge of random animation both ani*kuri and Genius Party feel more like animators showing off what they can do. Although the stories may not always be the most coherent and make sense, they are definitely a fun ride.

If you enjoyed one, you will definitely have fun with the other.

Ani*Kuri15 and Genuis Party are two excellent compilations where the (famous) directors got to let their imagination run wild in order to come up with a stunning short-movie. The duration in Ani*Kuri is a mere 1min30 per movie, where 15 minutes each in Genius Party, but if you enjoyed one of these, I think you'd enjoy the other regardless of the difference in time.

Amazing Nuts!

Amazing Nuts!
  • OVA (1 ep x 15 min)
  • 2006

Four touching and intriguing stories are set to a backdrop of different songs: a futuristic cop patrols the streets to fight against crime; a girl experiences an out-of-this-world vision of the world after ingesting a variety of pills; a badass battling chick fights her way to happiness and manages to stoke the flame of love; and two lovers meet and exchange a beautiful rose.

Ani*Kuri15 and Amazing Nuts! are both collections of very short movies (1min each with AniKuri, 3-5min music vids with Nuts). Each of these compilations let you experience a variety of art-styles and stories, some with vibrant colours, others more greyscaled, but all short enough to stay interesting. While both of these compilations have a different way of storytelling (short stories vs. music videos), because of their wackiness and variety, if you enjoyed one of these, you'll surely enjoy the other as well.

Fuyu no Hi

Fuyu no Hi
  • Movie (1 ep x 39 min)
  • 2003

With the wind and rain pummelling down upon him during a long journey, a man finds his coat has crumbled and his hat torn. Then, in the depths of self-pity he is reminded of a master of mad verse who once travelled the same lands. Now inspired, he writes of horses shaking the dew of their manes, harvesting rice fields in the fading light, and willow trees dropping their leaves.

While Ani*Kuri15 is inherently funnier and far less abstract, both of these anime are efforts of multiple animators combined. If you're a bit of an animation nerd and enjoy seeing a variety of animation techniques used, then you'lll likely enjoy both of these.

Gag Manga Biyori

Gag Manga Biyori
  • TV (12 eps x 5 min)
  • 2005

What do you do when the Emperor of Japan has been replaced with... an alien from Planet Octopus?! From intense motorcycle races to crazy machine inventors from Holland, from sea voyages to battles about emo trading cards, there's never a dull moment in the life of the bizarre. Join an eclectic cast as they are visited by a Ramen Fairy, are reincarnated over and over, solve cases like detective pros, and overall have a laughably ridiculous time!

Both of these short series are full of random and often bizarre content. While Gag Manga Biyori is more fast paced than the majority of the Ani*Kuri shorts, if you liked one then it's well worth checking out the other.

Genius Party Beyond

Genius Party Beyond
  • Movie (5 eps x 15 min)
  • 2008

In five beautiful and unique fantasy worlds, five different tales unfold. A young boy worries about his pregnant mother; a mismatched group hunts down a legendary treasure on the Giant’s Isle; and a small village must determine the fate of a giant fallen meteor. These stories and more unwind to a musical backdrop in a world as varied and interesting as the next.

From the minds of many animators, these shorts are almost an exercise in the beautifully bizarre. If you liked ani*kuri, Genius Party has the same stunning visuals, but has a more coherent storyline.

If you have an hour or so to burn, and want something simple to enjoy, I would say give these two a try :)
