Synopsis:

Neo-Tokyo (commonly called Manie-Manie Monogatari) is a collection of three sci-fi stories, based on the stories of Taku Mayumura. "Labryinth Labyrithos", "The Running Man", and "Order To Stop Construction" were directed by Taro Rin, Yoshiaki Kawajiri, and Katsuhiro Otomo, respectively. Ranging from an abstract demented clown to malfunctioning robots, each of these short stories are sure to entertain.

Take the X Train

Take the X Train
  • OVA (1 ep x 51 min)
  • 1987

Nishihara Toru is an everyday guy with an on-and-off girlfriend and a position working for a train buff. Things become complicated when a ghostly vehicle dubbed the X Train begins to ride the rails, destroying everything in its path. The catch? Somehow, it seems that Toru is connected with the X Train by a strange power, which draws the attention of some very dangerous and power hungry people who would wield it for their own...

Neo Tokyo and Take the X Train are quite similar in animation style and blind storylines. The flow and the atmosphere created are one in the same for both of these, except I thought the music for X Train was way better.

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 NeoTokyo and Tobira o Akete contain the same sort of surrealistic storytelling that at once captivates and confuses the viewer. If you've seen one of these anime with a dizzy-but-happy sensation of "What am I watching? I don't care, this is great!", then the other is right up your alley.

Twilight Q

Twilight Q

From the depths of the human imagination comes Twilight Q, a Twilight Zone-style set of two tales based upon the paranormal and supernatural. In one story, Mayumi and Kiwako find a camera that supposedly came from the future, with very interesting film and already-taken pictures inside. Secondly, a tale by Mamoro Oshii which chronicles a strange occurance of planes turning into carp in mid-air, much to the dismay of private investigators and the media alike.

Twilight Q and Neo-Tokyo share more in common than just being short stories. The stories themselves range from an interesting plot, to a fairly abstract tale that will confuse you. Animation styles are also similar in various tales of each, so you'll enjoy that as well. I definitely think if you liked episodes of one of these, you'd appreciate the other.

Ugokie Kori no Tatehiki

Ugokie Kori no Tatehiki
  • Movie (1 ep x 11 min)
  • 1933

Under the pale glow of a full moon, the night air is filled with spirits and magic -- mere humans would do well to stay at home on nights like these. If you happen to be a shapeshifting fox, however, the time is ripe for a exploring a run down temple nearby, no matter how ghastly its appearance may be. As it happens, sometimes appearances are not deceiving: the temple is haunted by a mischevious tanuki who does his damnedest to scare the intruder away! A fierce battle of wits between the mythical creatures starts. The tanuki seems to know every trick in the book, but the fox has been around the block a few times too...

They are both really alike by totaly insane plot :)

Neo Tokyo contains three diferent stories but I guess Ugokie Kori no Tatehiki could take part in Neo tokyo too. Both animes are magical, really crazy and sometimes even unclear what the main idea of the author was.
