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…
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?
Both of these Studio 4C music videos have a very distinctive style and deal with the world being viewed in a different light. If you like one, definitely watch the other.
Two music videos of exactly the same style by Studio 4C. If you liked the one, you should definitely try the other.
"I have only abandoned my body, I still live here" - are the words emailed to friends of Chisa, several days after her death by suicide. As Lain delves deeper into the world of the "Wired" (also known as the internet), the line between it and reality becomes more and more unclear. Close the world, open the nExt.
Though Survival is only a music video, it still heavily resembles Lain.
Both leads are teenage girls who fall out of touch with reality and struggle to cope.
Survival is far more upbeat with it being a rock music video and all. Lain takes the idea through the extremely serious and "out there" route. A pleasant contrast if you enjoyed either.
While worlds apart in length, these two anime are very similar.
Both are psychological and rather abstract works (Lain moreso) which reflect on the way we live our lives, how we stick with others to belong to a social group and how the superficiality of our acts may sometimes make us lose sight of the foundation of our existence.
The two of them leave lots of things for the viewers to figure out themselves, so the experience will most likely be different for every person.
Besides, the art style and designs for each really resemble each other. I'd even daresay the same people were involved.
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.
A lone basset hound wanders the empty streets of Tokyo. Humans are long gone, only distant memories remain in storefronts, buildings, and abandoned shrines. All the hound wishes is for someone to play fetch with again, and it faithfully finds a new ball each day in hopes that a curious being will cure its loneliness...
