Animatrix

Animatrix

Witness the true beginning of the Matrix: how men created the machines and how those machines stood up against their masters, and the effects of the great war that waged between them, which in the end led to the fall of mankind. Watch the ship Osiris and its efforts to warn the remaining humans of the imminent attack; follow a champion who happens to break free from the Matrix; explore the exploitation of a glitch in the overall system; observe the story of the Kid and how he was found by Neo; travel with an investigator who tracks the well-known hacker Trinity; and learn the secrets of the Matrix in other wondrous ways.

Both animes are feature a conflict betwwen humans and machines with machines that are out of control (The Jags are very similar to the Sentinals). The animation of Vexille is excellent like some of the episodes of The Animatrix. If you liked one it might be an idea to check out the other.

After the third world war, the organization known as the General Management Control Office constructed the city of Olympus – the only place where chaos and anarchy doesn’t hold sway. It seems unthinkable that terrorists are out to disrupt this pristine society, but the threat becomes very real to SWAT officers Deunan and Briareos when their squad mates are killed during a hostage situation. Bent on catching the lone escaped terrorist, they soon find themselves involved in a plot to undermine the whole existence of their Olympus.

Both works examine some of the ethical and moral concerns that would arise should society closely integrate technologies that blur the boundaries between man and machine, e.g. bioroids, androids and cyborgs.

Karas

Karas

Unbeknownst to humans, demons from an overlapping dimension walk amongst them in the streets of Tokyo. The balance between the worlds is kept by the crow guardian Karas and Yurine, its master and voice of the living city. However, the time of harmony nears the end as the once-Karas Lord Eko returns. Seeking to purge humanity for its evils, he terrorizes the city with his minions that feast on human blood. The ultimate battle between good and evil awaits; can Yurine and her newly initiated Karas prevail against Lord Eko and protect their city against his monstrous horde?

There is something about visually attractive scf-fi that makes us want to watch it and both Karas and Wonderful Days are stuffed with graphical excellence. If your "eyes" have enjoyed one, they will like the other too.

Planzet

Planzet
  • Movie (1 ep x 55 min)
  • 2010

In the year 2047, the invaders came without warning, annihilating most of humanity in days. And while the survivors banded together to form a new world government to combat the threat, by 2053, mankind's outlook is bleak. Now, in a final desperate attack, hope lies only with a soldier who lost his father in the invasion, and a weapon more powerful than belief.

Plot? Who needs plot when you've got CGI?

Vexille and Planzet provide fully CGI anime, although their plots are nothing more then a mishmash of science fiction action cliches - in Planzet's case, very obviously the plot of a Gundam movie (and a pastiche of mecha in general), while Vexille's influences are cyberpunk and the Matrix. Pretty much you get CGI sci-fi action that's empty and forgettable, but if you watched one for that, the other also provides.
