If you liked the Diary of Tortov Roddle, The anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
Carving a lonely figure on the skyline of his home city, Catman is a solitary guy who spends his days as he pleases - except, he doesn’t always have that much luck and really hates the town he’s living in. From whiling away the hours at the slots to playing drunken games of bowling, Catman just gets on with life and does whatever he feels like.
These two series might seem very different, but I find them somewhat similair. While Tortov Roddle is more slow-paced fantasy and Catman action-packed and foul-mouthed, both are shoet web series with unique styles that set them apart from the masses. They also follow a lonesome traveller of his own road.
Catman is still revelling in his solitary lifestyle, and wanders the streets passing the time however he sees fit. From becoming inspired by his kung-fu movie hero, to starting up a feud with a local apple salesman, the apathetic and foul-mouthed feline takes each day as it comes, even if it means getting beaten up or losing a possible lover…
A adventure-seeking, lonely traveller is the main character of both Tortov Roddle and Catman II. Though the latter is a little more action-packed and foul-languaged, there's something similair in the animation style of these titles that set them apart from the mass. I see no reason to skip one or the other.
In a lush and detailed fantasy world, magical airships sail amidst floating islands and villas. Luxurious earthly homes lie amidst hillsides of flowers and trees, and a lone pond houses a single shoot of life. Miniature tram cars come and go, ladies’ dresses flutter in the breeze, will o’ wisps dance in the midst of dusk and lights flicker warmly. With a lack of narrative, Iblard Jikan shows us these visions and more alongside a soundtrack of lilting melodies.
Armed with a set of binoculars, a colonial hat and a net, a mustached researcher wanders through an apparently normal city. That is, it would be a normal city were it not for its many strange inhabitants and occurrences such as a clock-faced man, a pink beast, a morphing green blob, floating garbage and some rather large birds. On occasion the green blob mimics the researcher's net or binoculars, and the researcher frequently resorts to his binoculars if he wants to see any of these strange things.
Two examples of strange, charmingly surreal and voiceless short works. Tortov Roddle is admittedly by far the stronger of the two, but Perspektivenbox is also worth watching if you enjoy this kind of short.
Chihiro and her family are on their way to their new home, when they discover an abandoned amusement park. After Chihiro's family mysteriously turn into pigs, she is thrown into a surreal world of magic and fantasy. Join her as she struggles to survive in the bathhouse of the gods, ruled by an evil witch who has stolen not only her name, but her way back to the real world.
If you liked Diary of Tortov Roddle, you should try watching Spirited Away, since both movies have an amazing magical reality (even though the world in Spirited Away seems to be more rational). Also the worlds share some elements (try to pick them up!).
