Synopsis

Containing shorts that couldn't be included in the original, Genius Party Beyond weaves stories that are both deep and insightful: the idea all life is relative in size, the consequences of an oppressive government, and how to deal with your darker desires, among others.

From the directors and artists of works such as Samurai Champloo, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Akira, come a multitude of thought-provoking tales, to create a collection equalling the original in storytelling genius.

Like previous Studio 4c collaborations "Batman: Gothic Knight" and "The Animatrix", the Genius Party shorts are less about showcasing deep stories than they are about showcasing the wonders of animation. Unlike the previously listed collaborations, the Genius Party shorts are primarily personal projects made by both established and independent animators. The only thing that can be stated about the shorts as a whole is that they are wonderfully imaginative and colorful, and the Beyond shorts are arguably even more imaginative than the original Genius Party works.

The first short, "Gala", directed by anime regular Mahiro Maeda of GONZO fame, is essentially a music video read more

Time to go BEYOND…….



Gala: From director Mahiro Maeda of GONZO, this is set up more of a music video (although better than current music videos) when a meteorite crashes upon a village and the only way to keep it under control is to perform music or soothe it. The music itself drives the energy and life in this anime because everything else wasn’t helping at all, but it doesn’t mean it was bad. It was just the usual animation and art-style of this short.



Moondrive: Kazuto Nazakawa, known for work in Samurai Champloo, The Animatrix and director of the anime sequence in Kill Bill, Vol. 1 read more

Just like I did in my review for the first Genius Party, i'll give a rating for each short then an overall rating.

1. Gala - 8
2. Moondrive - 8
3. Wanwa the Puppy - 7
4. Tojin Kit - 8
5. Dimension Bomb - 9

Unlike the first Genius Party where 3 of the shorts were bad and the other 4 were good, Genius Party Beyond doesn't have a single bad short. Wanwa the Puppy is the weakest of the shorts, mainly because the animation style can be a tad off putting at times, but it's still a good short. Gala, Moondrive and Tojin Kit are very good, but read more
