Genius Party

Genius Party

Seven stories are told in seven very different ways. In a Dahli-esque Serengeti, a tale of a hunter and hunted unfolds. A young boy finds a useful device and is sucked into a futuristic battle. A slow-paced train ride takes two delinquent school children for a ride to the beach and down memory lane. And a baby travels through his dreams because of the ‘Happy Machine’ – amongst other tales.

Short, sweet and a deluge of random animation both ani*kuri and Genius Party feel more like animators showing off what they can do. Although the stories may not always be the most coherent and make sense, they are definitely a fun ride.

If you enjoyed one, you will definitely have fun with the other.

Ani*Kuri15 and Genuis Party are two excellent compilations where the (famous) directors got to let their imagination run wild in order to come up with a stunning short-movie. The duration in Ani*Kuri is a mere 1min30 per movie, where 15 minutes each in Genius Party, but if you enjoyed one of these, I think you'd enjoy the other regardless of the difference in time.

Studio 4 worked on Ani*Kuri15 as well. There's also work by Makoto Shinkai and Satoshi Kon on it. Both are abstract and strange.

Digital Juice

Digital Juice

From the minds of six directors comes Digital Juice, a Studio 4C collection of six shorts that border on the unusual. From chicken's insurance to trips to the moon, to a wine glass that might be... pregnant?! You can find it all here in one confusing and abstract twenty-minute package.

Both are collections of shorts made by various directors.  In both collections, the shorts vary in animation style and content.  If you like one of these collections, then you may like the other collection.

Nicknames Nicknames says...

Both are a collection of shorts in which different directors try to tell a story in a very short amount of time. The genre of these shorts vary in artstyle and genre so you can find a comedy short, an action one, and even some abstract shorts. So if you liked one of these collections go ahead and check the other! You won't be dissapointed.

Both Digital Juice and Ani*Kuri are collections of shorts that are all directed by a differente director. Both of them are also full of weird stuff. But if you enjoyed either of these and need more... well, watch the other.

Genius Party Beyond

Genius Party Beyond

In five beautiful and unique fantasy worlds, five different tales unfold. A young boy worries about his pregnant mother; a mismatched group hunts down a legendary treasure on the Giant’s Isle; and a small village must determine the fate of a giant fallen meteor. These stories and more unwind to a musical backdrop in a world as varied and interesting as the next.

From the minds of many animators, these shorts are almost an exercise in the beautifully bizarre. If you liked ani*kuri, Genius Party has the same stunning visuals, but has a more coherent storyline.

If you have an hour or so to burn, and want something simple to enjoy, I would say give these two a try :)

Gag Manga Biyori

Gag Manga Biyori

What do you do when the Emperor of Japan has been replaced with... an alien from Planet Octopus?! From intense motorcycle races to crazy machine inventors from Holland, from sea voyages to battles about emo trading cards, there's never a dull moment in the life of the bizarre. Join an eclectic cast as they are visited by a Ramen Fairy, are reincarnated over and over, solve cases like detective pros, and overall have a laughably ridiculous time!

Both of these short series are full of random and often bizarre content. While Gag Manga Biyori is more fast paced than the majority of the Ani*Kuri shorts, if you liked one then it's well worth checking out the other.

Neko Ramen

Neko Ramen

Taishou is the dedicated owner and chef of a small ramen shop in Tokyo – and he's also… a cat?! Though enthusiastic to run the best possible eatery, the feline's cooking skills leave much to be desired – a fact that Tanaka-san, Taishou's most frequent customer, experiences on a regular basis. With part time helpers such as a kleptomaniac bum, and schemes to bring in business such as serving a restaurant critic gourmet food instead of the usual swill, Taishou's ramen shop is never a dull place to patronize or work at!

Ani*Kuri15 and Neko Rahmen have similar purposes: each episode is animated by a different animator with a different vision/artistic style. These animators had to work around tight restrictions (a pre-determined concept in Neko Rahmen and a criminally short time limit in Ani*Kuri15), but the results are fascinating, nonetheless.

Both are really short, and easily finished whenever you have a tiny bit of free time.

Amazing Nuts!

Amazing Nuts!

Four touching and intriguing stories are set to a backdrop of different songs: a futuristic cop patrols the streets to fight against crime; a girl experiences an out-of-this-world vision of the world after ingesting a variety of pills; a badass battling chick fights her way to happiness and manages to stoke the flame of love; and two lovers meet and exchange a beautiful rose.

Omurqi Omurqi says...

Ani*Kuri15 and Amazing Nuts! are both collections of very short movies (1min each with AniKuri, 3-5min music vids with Nuts). Each of these compilations let you experience a variety of art-styles and stories, some with vibrant colours, others more greyscaled, but all short enough to stay interesting. While both of these compilations have a different way of storytelling (short stories vs. music videos), because of their wackiness and variety, if you enjoyed one of these, you'll surely enjoy the other as well.

Fuyu no Hi

Fuyu no Hi

With the wind and rain pummelling down upon him during a long journey, a man finds his coat has crumbled and his hat torn. Then, in the depths of self-pity he is reminded of a master of mad verse who once travelled the same lands. Now inspired, he writes of horses shaking the dew of their manes, harvesting rice fields in the fading light, and willow trees dropping their leaves.

While Ani*Kuri15 is inherently funnier and far less abstract, both of these anime are efforts of multiple animators combined. If you're a bit of an animation nerd and enjoy seeing a variety of animation techniques used, then you'lll likely enjoy both of these.

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.

Neo Tokyo

Neo Tokyo

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.
