Synopsis

Sweat Punch is a series of five Studio 4°C shorts collected as a direct-to-DVD package film entitled Deep Imagination.

1. Professor Dan Petory's Blues
Puppet Professor Dan Petory comedically discusses a series of serious or strange occurrences.

2. End of the World
"End of the World" is a science fiction story about a young alien girl named Yuko as she escapes from the world of humans. After meeting Kazumi, a human girl Yuko met at a rock concert, the girls head to Kazumi's apartment. Before Yuko even takes off her shoes, however, she leaves through Kazumi's TV with her trusty cybernetic steed FACE to wage a retaliatory campaign against hordes of S&M monsters from another dimension, and the evil queen of Yuko's world.

3. Kigeki (Comedy)
Set during the Irish War of Independence, a five-year old girl goes out in search of the mysterious Demon’s Castle - home of the Black Knight whose services she hopes to recruit. The Black Knight is a dark, young, skilled swordsman who will only accept a particular genre of books as advance payment.

4. Higan (Enlightenment)
An injured man lies completely still in a hospital room with doctors hovering at his bedside, appearing serene and peaceful as he slowly succumbs to death. However, in his own mind, memories of a recent battle vividly flash by. Thoughts of death and chaos haunt him, even in his final moments.

5. Garakuta no Machi (Junk Town)
One summer day, a young boy encounters a little robot at a shopping arcade-a hungry little robot, it turns out, as he devours one machine after the other, growing in size with each "meal". This story of a boy, a machine, and their little adventure is the tale of an unusual friendship, enriched by the details of daily life and seen through the director's unique visual style.

This review is for Kigeki (Comedy).

Wow. I don't really know what to say. It's good, that much is certain. It's basically a dark fairy tale about a swordsman and his hobby, and the little girl who finds out about it. I really can't say much more than that without spoiling anything, since it's so short. Just go watch it, there really isn't any excuse since it's just 10 minutes. The animation is very breath taking, in fact it is hauntingly beautiful, and appears as though it was shot through an old film camera, you can see all the artifacts read more

This review is for End of the World.

Like a work by Andy Warhol, End of the World failed to leave much of an impression on me, playing too much on modernism than anything of substance. Maybe if I was in some deluded state, not as quick, not as sharp, insightful or judging, it would have kicked me off my rocker and taken me to la-la land. But, presently, I'm not.

If you've ever watched American 90s cartoons, End of the World has the same feel and animation as those (or at least its closer to cartoons than most anime). Bright colors and a read more

Recommendations

the characters, atmosphere and color palette are very simillar.
Both are anime shorts, which give you a glimpse of several different worlds. A variety and mix of everything. Both are worth a watch just to see the huge range of things animation can take us.
