Which short did you like best?
Pic might be related
It's been so long since I've seen it. That scene was the one I remember the most so I think that's my favorite. It was so cool how she fell in slow motion.

A Detective story.
That samurai one.
The rest were varying degrees of awful.
Beyond was fucking beautiful.
Also, I really enjoyed the skate scene in Kid's Story. I also liked World Record and A Detective Story
Kids story and art style was so cash!
Second renaissance was my favorite, I remember when KND did a parody of it too.
Beyond and A Detective Story are close seconds
Agreed, I loved it when I first saw it, but none of my subsequent viewings have been able to capture that same magic in full. On the other hand, World Record gets better each time I watch it, and went from being a kind of dull conceptual short to my current favourite of the bunch, alongside Kid's Story.
I wish there was more actual anime like this The Animatrix is really what made me into a full on lover of anime in the first place and is easily the best entry level production you can watch outside of Ghibli.
Matriculated is the worst short.
>Second renaissance was my favorite, I remember when KND did a parody of it too.
There's other collection of experimental short films anon, a lot of stuff by studio 4°c too.
Beyond or Second Renaissance.
All of them were great but Matriculated wasn't on par with the rest and took longer, too.
the one with the magic regenerating bottle and The Second Renaissance
>mfw during The Second Renaissance
>mfw watching that soldier get ripped out that mech
Well time to have another movie night.
>I wish there was more actual anime like this
There are plenty of good anime anthologies out there.
You should stream for us, anon.
I would but, Gotta head to bed, I actually care about my grades this year
Kid's Story was best.
Should rewatch though.
Beyond and Second Renaissance were the best
I like the one based off of my highschool
This was hands-down the best. Detective Story was close though.
Who directed it again? It felt like a Satoshi Kon thing, although I know it wasn't him.
This succeeded in making me want to rewatch it.
Definitely that one. I'm a sucker for surrealistic stuff like Ghibli and Gainax.
The mecha designs in Second Renaissance were cool. Range Murata worked on them.
Detective Story and World Record were also pretty ballin'.
Which one was the one where that runner broke free from the Matrix for a few seconds?
His art books are fucking mind blowing too.
Speaking of Kon though, too bad he died before he could adapt a H. Murakami novel
I'd rather have Masaaki Yuasa do Murakami, actually.
The one with the black sprinter that snapped out of it for a few seconds or the detective one.
Second Renaissance is objectively the best.
World record, definitely.
Lord knows Tomokazu Tokoro already directed "The Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World - Without the Hard-Boiled and with Christian Themes Instead: Lite ed."
>I couldn't enjoy Haibane Renmei until the final episodes because I had read Hard-Boiled and everything HR did, it did too but better and earlier.
But you're right, that's be pretty great, plus he's actually alive as well, which is a large point in his favour.
That scream when that soldier gets ripped out of the mecha still haunts me
These guys got the right answer.
>The samurai one
At best that was cool but empty.
World Record or Second Renaissance
Shit, now I need to buy the Animatrix.
I've watched them (Genius Party etc), they aren't nearly as good because they emphasise experimentalism over the mostly focused plots that Animatrix had.
Avenues of expression and experimentation are always goods and should be appreciated as such.
That doesn't necessarily mean you aren't correct in your criticisms however
Kids Story for Juno Reactor
God Trinity was hot in detective story...
The one where the runner breaks free from Matrix bonds.
