What do you get when you cross a robot, a baby, a parasol, and a homicidal personality? Just one of the players in a futuristic and violent game of life and death. Children with guns, demented astronauts, slick shade-wearing badasses, robots gone wrong and more clash in a bloody and frantic experience through the streets of a dystopic city.

Four Day Weekend

Four Day Weekend
  • Music Video (1 ep x 4 min)
  • 1998

A couple in love fools around in their apartment, until a strange occurrence sees the once gentle face of the city start to change. Running down familiar streets, the spinning cogs and pumping pistons turn into intimidating silhouettes as haunting spirits dance forth from the once peaceful people. Can the pair find each other once more, or are they instead destined to chase the fragile bubbles dancing through the air?

Short music videos with the distinctive style of Studio 4C. Extra is definitely the better and stranger of the two but Four Day Weekend is also worth its mere handful of minutes.

Glay: Survival

Glay: Survival
  • Music Video (1 ep x 5 min)
  • 1999

A girl walks the streets with her three friends; together, they take pictures, sing karaoke, and attend concerts, having fun every step of the way. However, while passing a few young boys, something happens to the girl, and her view on life suddenly changes…

If you liked the abstract themes in either Survival or Extra then it's worth watching the other. Not only are both from Studio 4C, but they are both fairly fast paced as well.

Kakurenbo: Hide & Seek

Kakurenbo: Hide & Seek
  • Movie (1 ep x 26 min)
  • 2004

Near the ruins of an old and abandoned city, there is played a game simply known as "Otokoyo." It is said that when children play this game, they go missing one by one. Some say it is ghosts. Others say it is demons. But for Hikora, one thing is certain: his sister disappeared playing the game and he will do whatever it takes to find her, even if it means playing the game himself. He and seven others will do just that, all for their own reasons, and learn that rumors aren’t always fictitious. Escaping with their lives will become the main concern when this game of hide-and-seek turns deadly.

Most definitely a case of style of substance as you explore the futuristic streets of neo-tokyo in these two visually outstanding shows.

With a very dark tale, the story unfurls in a somewhat confusing way. I don't think these are shows to be overly analysed, more a case for the viewer to sit back and enjoy the artistic talent used to produce both Kakurenbo and Extra.

If you're a snob for outstanding animation, I think you should give both of these a try.

Tekkon Kinkreet

Tekkon Kinkreet
  • Movie (1 ep x 110 min)
  • 2006

In the rusty and run-down Treasure Town, young orphans in their respective gangs rule the roost and use the landscape as their playground. The violent Black and naïve White are two such orphans who are unafraid of fellow children and Yakuza alike; never have they found a foe who could best them in a battle – until now. A strange man and his even stranger (and seemingly indestructible) henchmen have plans to tear down Treasure Town and erect an amusement park in its place, and they’ll cut down anyone who stands in their way. Can Black and White save their home, and each other?

Extra and Tekkon Kinkreet are both set in a hyper-violent (that includes children), visually-crowded (tons of tall buildings, electrical lines criss-crossing the city, and all manner of other structures every which way) city that gives them a very similar feel/atmosphere.

Tobira o Akete (1995)

Tobira o Akete (1995)
  • OVA (1 ep x 11 min)
  • 1995

Nonoko is a little girl who is about to go to sleep, until she spots a spirit, who has longed for Nonoko to notice him, in the shadows beyond her open door. Nonoko follows this spirit into a beautiful dreamy world filled with many colors. Flying through the air she encounters many different things from birds, to flowers, to a couple of odd looking fish, in a world that she must somehow revive all by herself.

Both Tobira o Akete and Extra are two shorts directed by Koji Morimoto and produced by Studio 4C in which the emphasis is on their sense of (very similar) visual style. While there is an element of childlike wonder and imagination in Tobira o Akete, while Extra is a somewhat plot-less music video, they are otherwise quite complimentary.
