Synopsis:

Life unfolds in the most unexpected places. Story of a Street Corner follows the bustling activities of a street corner, but not the ones you would expect. A hungry mouse, a moth desperately seeking the food caught in a spider’s web, and a love triangle unfolding between the posters lining the street are all depicted with an original musical score as the only sound.

Broken Down Film

Broken Down Film
  • Movie (1 ep x 6 min)
  • 1985

The short Broken Down Film is just that: broken. The film has aged poorly and the projector has trouble keeping the frame straight, but the protagonist is well aware of this. Exploiting these conditions the bumbling cowboy attempts to rescue a damsel in distress and win her heart.

Both Tales of a street corner and broken down film have a rather unusual drawing style for anime that gives them a similar feel although their contents are not comparable. They have something old fashioned to them that gives thema fresh look. If you liked one, you might want to give the other a try

Chirin no Suzu

Chirin no Suzu
  • Movie (1 ep x 45 min)
  • 1978

As a child, Chirin the lamb is taught by his loving mother to be wary of leaving their pasture; wolves and other predators are a constant threat, though the naïve Chirin believes they would never eat his kind. But when a wolf breaches the perimeter and kills his mother while she protects him, Chirin decides he must do the unthinkable: find the wolf and demand that he trains Chirin to be strong. Chirin must undergo rigorous conditions and be the very thing that he despises so that he may have his revenge, but will he lose himself in the process?

LadyPsychic

While they have different plots and different animation styles, both Chirin no Suzu and Tales of a Street Corner start off seemingly happy and innoccent but become rather dark and depressing towards the end.  If you want to watch an older anime that becomes surprisingly dark, then check out both.

Singan

- both of these short movies take place in the street and feature inanimate objects as characters;

- both are dramas;

- both involve a love story either as a main plot or a subplot;

- both employ animation techniques that make them look different from usual anime.

So, if you liked the one, try the other too.

Memories

Memories

This set of 3 fantastic stories will take you from the haunting delusions of a space explorer, to a bio-chemical threat with the power to wipe out all of Tokyo, and finally to a day in the life of a young boy who lives in a world ruled by cannons. These stores will capture you with their intriguing storylines and awe inspiring artwork.

Cannon Fodder (the third movie in Memories) and Tales of Street Corner have a unique style of animation. Also both of them show the absurdity of war in an interesting way. If you liked one, you definitely have to see the other.

Ningyo

Ningyo
  • Movie (1 ep x 8 min)
  • 1964

With no speech, Ningyo relates the story of a boy who falls in love with a mermaid. Their love blossoms in wonderful places (and through amusing games), but when living in a world of prohibition, one can not daydream as he pleases: torture and brainwashing should teach the boy what reality is made of, and that does not include mermaids...

Both Ningyo and Tales of a Street Corner are about an impossible romance in a world where daydreaming is out of the question. Though the stories are different, both are quite similar in the way they focus on the story and keep it as pure as possible, not bothering with amazing effects or implicit aspects.
