I came Across this anime unintentionally while flipping through tv channels and it simply absorbed me in. The anime 'Memories' is a film that consists of 3 unrelated episodes, each is written and presented in a rather enigmatic format. Of these three Magnetic Rose was my favorite and so I wish to share it with you. (It is divided into 5 parts on youtube) I also rather liked the stylization of Cannon Fodder(the third episode), which would be of particular interest to you folks that like unique art styles!

I saw this movie for the first time years ago, at anime club at college. It's impressive.

Have you seen Tekkonkinkreet? That's another anime movie with amazing visuals. It's also rather philosophical which I liked. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0A97Qz7X6A It's about two orphaned children who protect a made-up place called Treasure Town.

Ohhhh "memories" it's been a long time i saw these animes.

Otomo Katsuhiro (akira) had really very strange (and interesting) ideas. ^^

Cannonfodder is indeed the most impressive i think - a society living for a "long gone" war.

"Fire and Ice" from Ralph Bakshi may be another good classic and "Herrscher der Zeit" from René Laloux, sadly i can't find any english version of it.
