Memories

Three episodes, three different animation styles, based on three science fiction short stories by Katsuhiro Ôtomo.

Ep.1: Magnetic Rose - In the Bernard 4th Galaxy, the space salvage ship Corona receives a transmission on the emergency frequency from a wrecked spaceship. The distress signal comes in the form of a piece of opera from 'Madame Butterfly'...

Ep.2: Stink Bomb - A lab technician at a pharmaceutical company comes into work with a bad case of the flu. His co-workers suggest that he try the new medicine sample sitting on their boss' desk. He does so without realizing that it's a new kind of weapon that's been secretly developed for the government. One little pill and he's suddenly a walking biohazard...

Ep.3: Cannon Fodder - A day-in-the-life tale of a little boy and his family whose entire society revolves around the firing of enormous cannons at an unseen enemy.

Japanese animation at it's best. The first segment "Magnetic Rose" was an engaging drama/action short and kept me on the edge of my seat. The second segment: "Stink Bomb" was more light...
