Amazing Nuts (2006)
Collection of 4 music videos created by the progressive Studio 4°C, a little over 13 minutes in total, in different styles. Similar to Sweat Punch (2002).
‣ “Glass Eye” (2006)
Unclear. A woman, possibly homeless and addicted to some hallucinogen, ponders a spinning white feather, and ruins are repaired as a vibrant modern city.
‣ Global Astroliner Gou (2006)
A police officer built like a gorilla, and his three sidekicks, work amid the demihuman scum of a colourful metropolis.
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.
‣ Joe and Marilyn (2006)
An entertainer sings about two lovers, in front of an audience of assorted weird characters.
Poor character design.
‣ Kung-Fu Love (2006)
Psychedelic short clips from a magical-girl story about someone with a yin-yang hairdo battling bad guys, crying, and smiling with her friends.
Looks like a more stylish cousin of Windy Tales (2004). The original title, Tatoe Kimi ga Sekaijū no Teki ni Natte mo means roughly “If the whole world went against you”.
