Tales of a Street Corner

Tales of a Street Corner

Tales of a Street Corner is the first experimental anime produced by the legendary mangaka Tezuka Osamu. It portrays how life circles around a certain street corner, with music leading the way, as animals, people, even posters and lamps interact with each other. Tezuka deliberately left the plot quite vague and concentrated his efforts on the emotional side. As every event is in sync with Takai Tatsuo's musical score, and all characters are represented by their own distinct tunes, Tales of a Street Corner displays the whole gamut of emotion, varying from peacefully calm to warlike rage.

In the wake of this strange meeting, Naota then sees his world turned upside-down as robots start spontaneously popping out of his head and wreaking havoc on the town. It seems that the scooter-riding stranger is back and she has answers to what’s happening to Naota. So much for boring days…

Nekojiru Gekijou

Nekojiru Gekijou

If you were to think of the most brutal and sadistic duo ever, who would you come up with? Hitler and Stalin? Darth Vader and Sauron? Martha Stewart and Donald Trump? I suggest you think again. Nekojiru Gekijou describes the everyday life of Nyatta and Nyako, two seemingly lovable kittens. There are also pigs, humans, and other animals in this series, and they’ve all got one thing in common: they all fall victim to vicious verbal and physical assaults from these cute looking cats. Nyatta and Nyako could be described as the most racist, most ignorant, most hateful, most politically incorrect characters seen in any show so far and it would still be an understatement.
