Noiseman`s progressive, or weird if you will, concept is accessible because of its short length and simple, self contained story. Normally,something with a visual audio idiosyncracy like this is difficult to approach, and is therefore confined to its own niche following. Sadly, Noiseman doesn`t have much more than a small niche, but given the chance, most viewers will probably find that there is some mass-market appeal.

I believe a majority of people who watch Noiseman will enjoy it, but I doubt it will make too many avid fans. The plot is a little too complex for the alloted time. It doesn`t flow quite as effortlessly read more

Good anime. Good story, but it's too short anime and this is big minus, because not all of the things understandable. It may be better if it was full-length anime.

Anime: Superflat Monogram
Superflat Monogram and Noiseman hide short but cohesive stories behind visuals that seem like the brainchildren of kids on acid; that is, they are both flamboyantly cute yet head-spinningly surreal. The music they employ is chaotic with samplings from nearly every imaginable musical instrument between them, but the masterful way they are integrated with the animation, kicking beats in right when things get exciting, makes these films feel like very polished music videos.

Both are very good short movies, both are good characters and visuals, both have surreal and dark atmospheres, psychedelic.

Anime: Redline
Redline and Noiseman Sound Insect have their strengths in the same areas. They depict colorfully detailed futuristic cities, they're hyper kinetic even in their "slow" portions, and they combine frantic visuals and sound to create consequential and climactic action.
