Having watched the triple-feature "Memories" a while back, I decided to move onto another, titled "Short Peace". "Memories" featured some great content, but it was mainly held up by a single part of it. "Short Peace" went for completely different genres and styles and threw them all together, bringing a more inconsistent feel that made the whole idea of packaging of them together a bit meaningless. Manie-Manie: Meikyuu Monogatari or "Neo Tokyo", on the other hand, is more of a package deal in that each part aids in the enjoyment of the entire threesome. All of these parts are memorable and all are engaging. From read more

The first segment is “Labyrinth labyrinthos” by Rintarō about a young girl named Sachi trapped in a game read more
