La Maison en Petits Cubes

La Maison en Petits Cubes

An old man resides in a city mostly submerged by water, living in a home he had to build on top of his old one. His daily routine now consists of smoking his pipe, drinking wine, watching television and eating the fish he catches. Living alone in the silent desolation of the elderly he is surrounded by photographs but no people. One day he drops his pipe into the water and it disappears into his old, submerged home. To retrieve it he rents a scuba suit, but once he descends into the place he used to live he is overwhelmed by the memories of the life he used to have - the family he used to know.

La Maison en Petits Cubes was the first anime short to win an Oscar, while Atama Yama was one of the previous nominees - but more than that, they're both superbly animated shorts with a grainy somewhat European look and focus on an elderly man, his very real problems depicted through fantasy elements. While they differ in how they treat that man - La Maison with tenderness, Atama Yama with cruel satire - they appeal to the same sort of audience.

There are many reasons for liking La Maison en Petits Cubes and the amazing art it features is one of the obvious reasons. Atama Yama is drawn in a similar way using a little distorted image and it looks just as good as La Maison. If you are a fan of this art style, you will definitely enjoy both titles.

Perspektivenbox

Perspektivenbox

Armed with a set of binoculars, a colonial hat and a net, a mustached researcher wanders through an apparently normal city. That is, it would be a normal city were it not for its many strange inhabitants and occurrences such as a clock-faced man, a pink beast, a morphing green blob, floating garbage and some rather large birds. On occasion the green blob mimics the researcher's net or binoculars, and the researcher frequently resorts to his binoculars if he wants to see any of these strange things.

Aside from the fact that both of these are works by Koji Yamamura and therefore share the same distinctive style, both of these animations focus on a single person in a city and place an odd twist on it. If you liked the 'odd factor' of one you may enjoy the other.

Gut feeling rec! If you lked Atama Yama and not Perspektivenbox (or vice-versa) I would be rather surprised. Same mood and all that.

While Atama Yama and Super Kuma-san don't share much in common other than extreme weirdness and a sort of surrealistic set of imagery, I can only think that if you really enjoy one, you can't help but enjoy the other.

Neo Tokyo

Short, random, and a darker color scheme... for fans of Atama Yama or parts of Neo-Tokyo, you are sure to like the other.

Robot Carnival

This collection is comprised of 7 very different and unique stories. This OVA series preaches of intriquing storylines and fantastic artwork, each from a different artist. Each story has a different interpretation or concept about the one theme upon which this collection revolves: Robots. This interesting anime classic has least one story for everyone.

Atama Yama and Robot Carnival are both insightfully done with fantastic imagery and very busy visuals. While Atama Yama is considerably shorter than Robot Carnival, both can be enjoyed equally on their own merits. If your a fan of things thare are a bit bizarre, both are sure to please.
