From diary writing to spy catching, to thwarting alien invasions or extinguishing fires, there’s nothing these robots can’t do.

In a futuristic Earth where robots live side by side with humans, performing tasks and roaming the streets at their whim, a young boy walks through a city by himself. While passing by an alley he spots a quirky red robot who, upon destroying and eating another robot, grows a mechanical piece onto its makeshift tail. Intrigued, the boy observes the robot as it methodically eats and grows, and whether he likes it or not, this stray robot soon appears to not want to leave the boy’s side...
In both Junk Town and Kimagure Robot robots go about their activities often oblivious to the concerns of the humans about them. In both anime, the distress of the people is comedic to the audience.
If you like short anime about robots, then you're in luck with both Junk Town and Kimagure Robot. While Kimagure is generally more humourous, if you enjoyed one, it's likely you'll like the other.
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.
Both Amazing Nuts! and Kimagure Robot are a series of stylish shorts produced by Studio 4C. While Kimagure Robot is interconnected and is entirely about its humour, Amazing Nuts! features four seperate shorts with elements of humour and music video - but both are full of an entertaining style that makes them a joy to watch.
In the year 2099, the world of sports has been changed forever due to the addition of athletically inclined robots. For Karu Duck High's baseball club, these expensive opponents on Eagle High's team present a large challenge, especially if they want to win the championship, and their pride! With no money to spend and one player short, the team decides to do the only sensible thing -- purchase a second-hand maid robot to help them win?! As the tournament approaches, this group of students must help a cleaning machine be a baseball star, all without ruining her circuitry!
The year is 48650 and in Merkur, humankind is at war with the machine race. High in their regal mansion, the quirky robots Lady Drossel Von Flugel and her servant Gedachtnis spend their time discussing the intricacies of life. From the art of letter writing and human verbal communication to the trials of owning a pet, the two show themselves to be utterly clueless. Then again, who cares when you have a robotic monkey to play with?
Both are unusual short comedies involving robots. I personally liked Fireball and Fireball Charming but didn't really enjoy Kimagure Robot; however, that may be only a matter of my subjective taste. So, check them both.
