Started interesting, then went really random, then sad at the end... Interesting, but not as good as Final Flight or Second Renaissance...

Top 5 of Animatrix:

1. Second Renaissance
2. Final Flight of the Osiris
3. Detective Story
4. Kid's Story
5. Matriculated

Overall, some good, some bad... but still good if you like the Matrix.

Boring in my opinion. I agree that it started off good, then the middle part got really drawn out, the ending was pretty cool though.

5/10 from me.

had an interesting concept, but the ending felt rushed and it ended really awkwardly in my opinion. it didn't really leave any time for the weight of what just happened to sink in.

Didn't really like this one. Didn't like the art or the story. Why does everyone have to die in like 5 minutes and why did that one robot decide to carry her instead of killing her like the rest.

5/10, final score for Animatrix 7/10.

Ranking of all of them.

1.The Second Resistence
2.The Kid's Story
3.Final Flight of the Osiris
5.World Record

8.Detective's Story

The first 3 parts were a good prequel to the whole story. Some side story's here and there, overall a fine bonus material.
I used to be a big fan of the matrix franchises. Too bad that the whole hype around matrix died out for me a long time ago.

This one would have been great if not for the horrendous art style.

Character design felt western.
I didn't like this.
Also they got wiped out way too easily.

This one's definitely marmite. I love it but I've always been a sucker for Peter Chung / Aeon Flux, which this basically is.

They harvest people innit. I guess the others couldn't be taken alive.

It's Chung, he's western and has never dwelt on action-for-action's sake. It seemed like a fairly big fight, just offscreen.
Watanabe's were as, if not more, western though surely.

I like the stories and designs in these shorts. this kinda make me hate anime, because it's deceiving... only 0.000001% of animes are as interesting as this. The only weak point is the Final Flight... epidose, which is very much like the movies.
