Global Astroliner Gou (2006)

Subject

A police officer built like a gorilla, and his three sidekicks, work amid the demihuman scum of a colourful metropolis.

Commentary

Designed, to some extent, like a trailer for a cheap 1970s SF action flick, but mixing lots of other stuff in there. Good music, which also matches well.

Kung-Fu Love (2006)

Subject

Psychedelic short clips from a magical girl story about a girl with a yin-yang hairdo battling bad guys, crying and smiling with her friends.

Commentary

Looks like a far more stylish cousin of Windy Tales (2004). The original title, Tatoe Kimi ga Sekaijuu no Teki ni Natte mo means roughly “And what if the whole world went against you”.
