Fantastical music videos with a fascinating anime visual montage make these two shorts a great quick watch. Both seem to be almost experimental at times, with different animation styles complimenting the musical accompaniment. Just sit back, and enjoy as neither show will disappoint.

Cat Soup

Cat Soup

Cat Soup is an extremely abstract, abnormal, and at times, disturbing adventure, from the director of Nadesico. This 30 minute OVA follows two kittens through what seems to be the underworld, as they search for one of their lost souls. Along the way, they encounter new (edible) friends, scary situations, and even the end of the world! Will these felines manage to return unscathed? Or more importantly, avoid becoming the main course for dinner? Confusion abounds in this quirky OVA.

Cat Soup and Tobira o Akete don't have a lot of dialogue, or a lot of plot for that matter, but they make up for that with oodles of atmosphere. Each is more like the staff's showing off the inventive world they created, which is as cute and cartoony as it is bizarre and surreal. Cat Soup is rather darker, though.
