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...
One rain-soaked evening, a young girl wanders through the streets and runs across a very curious and unique new friend...
Both are short films that feature a character making friends (or trying to make friends in the case of Je t'aime) with a robot/android. Both are rather melacholy and both feature characters walking empty streets. Both also have the themes of friendship and lonliness.
Both of these are slow shorts that involve robots(/android). They also both share a similar melancholy feeling. If you liked one you'd probably enjoy the other as well.
Two melancholy, beautiful shorts about a person/creature that meets a robot. I felt sad after watching both of them, but they are great watches.
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…
Glay is one of the most famous J-rock bands, and both of these videos feature their songs; also, both were created by eminent directors: Kouji Morimoto and Mamoru Oshii respectively. So, if you like Glay or just want a quick watch with quality animation, good music and some interesting story, give these two a try.
Haruka, the only known survivor of a cataclysmic global war, has taken refuge with a diverse group of sentient robots with distinct personalities.

In the far future, soldiers sift through the rubble of a post-apocalyptic landscape and come across a broken-down robot who shows the men its memories, watching a young girl grow up from a small child to a newlywed, just before disaster struck.
Two sad tales in a post-apocalyptic landscape - Memory focuses more on flashbacks of what used to be, while Je t'aime centers on the lonely life of the last inhabitant on Earth. Both have a similar tone and feel and will tug at the heartstrings.
