Memories Fan Club

Magnetic Rose
"Magnetic Rose" is about what happens when a deep space corporate freighter is called upon to investigate a distress signal from what ought to be a derelict space station. The space station is run by the deranged AI imprint of a lovelorn, jaded opera diva, who controls the station's functions, including its life support systems and (to more dramatic effect) its VR holography and supporting nanotechnical systems.

Of all three short films within "Memories", Magnetic Rose is generally considered to be the best, with fans often praising its emotional potency and skillful direction. Directed by Morimoto Koji. Script by noted anime director Kon Satoshi, based on a story by Otomo Katsuhiro.

Stink Bomb
More comical in tone than "Magnetic Rose", "Stink Bomb" concerns a young man who shows up to work at a bioresearch facility whilst flu-ridden. At a colleague's insistence, he takes some pills. These turn out to be part of a biological weapon program—the young man soon acquires a (literally) deadly body odor and becomes a walking weapon of mass destruction.

Cannon Fodder
In a walled city perpetually at war, everyone's lives and livelihood depend upon maintaining and firing the cannons: millions of cannons, ranging from cannons the size of the Seagram Tower to cannons the size of a beer bottle. The entire city is cannons: they take the place of smokestacks, of satellite dishes and TV antennae. The action directly concerns a young boy and his cannon-loader father, but is really about the faceless masses who slave to fuel and maintain this parody of the twentieth century war machine.

Loved this movie and is certainly underrated. Magnetic Rose is just beautiful and Cannon Fodder is mind-blowing.
I must say i do see logic behind merging them into one as they were realeased as one feature.
Thanks for the invite by the way, i wouldn't have noticed a club any other way.

I loved all three of these episodes. Cannon Fodder and Magnetic Rose were my favorites.

Well, they were all merged into one entry on MAL anyways....

Though, this matter is still open for debate if anyone objects.

Sounds OK to me. ^_^

I'm thinking of changing this club to the "Memories Fan Club". I do think that Magnetic Rose is the best of the three, but they're still one package and are meant to be watched together.

What do you guys think?

This movie is probably one of the best I've ever seen. I've very surprised finding this hidden gem even though it's a high 7 rating.

10/10 due to the lack of flaws in its story telling.
