Memories- Magnetic Rose

I came Across this anime unintentionally while flipping through tv channels and it simply absorbed me in. The anime 'Memories' is a film that consists of 3 unrelated episodes, each is written and presented in a rather enigmatic format. Of these three Magnetic Rose was my favorite and so I wish to share it with you. (It is divided into 5 parts on youtube) I also rather liked the stylization of Cannon Fodder(the third episode), which would be of particular interest to you folks that like unique art styles!

Ohhhh "memories" it's been a long time i saw these animes.

Otomo Katsuhiro (akira) had really very strange (and interesting) ideas. ^^

Cannonfodder is indeed the most impressive i think - a society living for a "long gone" war.

"Fire and Ice" from Ralph Bakshi may be another good classic and "Herrscher der Zeit" from René Laloux, sadly i can't find any english version of it.
