Format:DVD
I'm still pretty new to this wide new world of anime, so I can't really compare Memories to other works in the genre. I can say that it is a most interesting and impressive production made up of three very different short films from some of the leading names in anime. I don't think the visuals are quite as dazzling as that of more recent anime films, but the artistry of these three episodes certainly does help define the very different worlds in which the action takes place and demonstrates the compelling, visceral powers of anime. We have the celebrated Katsuhiro Otomo to thank for this project; each of the three films, if I'm not mistaken, was adapted from a short manga piece in Otomo's graphic novel Memories.

Episode One is Magnetic Rose, directed by Koji Morimoto of Animatrix fame. This is a beautiful, haunting tale of a most unusual space rescue mission. The crew of a space garbage collection ship responds to a distress signal from a dead part of space. Two crew members board the debris-shrouded vessel and enter a completely different world, one fueled by the memories of a beautiful young opera singer who apparently retreated to the isolation of space following a tragedy in her life. I won't pretend to have understood every thing about this story, but it is wholly captivating. The men encounter lavish rooms including opera houses and living quarters fit for a princess, holograms and other visual artifacts of "the young Madam" Eva entertaining guests and audiences, and decayed artifacts that sometimes come to life in front of their eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars finally! memories for the masses! June 4 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
i first saw 'memories' in 1996 and i am still blown away by it everytime i watch it. and i watch it a lot. my fansub copy from way back when should soon be replaced by this dvd edition.
the first segment, 'magnetic rose' is my favorite anime of all time. how could it not be? although the story is based on the manga by Katsuhiro Otomo, 'magnetic rose' was directed by my all time favorite anime director Koji Morimoto. Not only that, but it was created and produced at one of my favorite anime studios of all time, Studio 4C. on a side note, my 2nd favorite anime is 'Porco Rosso' by Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli.
'magnetic rose' features lush visuals, high quality animation, top notch production and art design, and an intruiging story concept. very atmospheric and lyrical, the film is set to snippets of puccini's 'madame butterfly'. Characters moving in weightlessness are animated more convincingly than Gundam 0083 (ok, so it's a tv series, but it's still done pretty well), and concept design for space vehicles and ships are both functional and believable. backgrounds are beautifully painted as well. what many people may not realize is that quite a bit of cg is used in this film also. from the spaceships and flying pods to the rose itself, it is so well done that one may not quite realize it until a second viewing. the worlds of reality and illusion are cleverly blended in this film, and will keep you watching until the breathtakingly poetic ending.
if i was stranded on a desert island, all i would need would be wi-fi access to the net and this film.
the other two films in this series bear mentioning too.
'stink bomb' is entertaining in its outrageous situations. if you like a lot of explosions in your anime, this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's not to love? March 11 2004
Format:DVD
From Katsuhiro Otomo (and others) comes three completely different stories. Each of them interesting and original in itself.
MAGNETIC ROSE is about a couple of astronauts who investigate an old space station. It has the atmospheric mood of a traditional ghost story but is set in a science fiction like reality. This one immeadiately became one of my favorite pieces of animation that I have ever seen. Glorious hand drawn traditional animation with minimal but beatifully incorporated cgi elements where necesary.
STINK BOMB is more of a funny story but definately a good one. A boy accidentaly swallows a pill that turns him into a biochemical weapon. As he unwillingly and unknowingly goes on a path of destruction through Tokyo the army deplores increasingly aggresive and desperate means to stop him, and as the story gradually grows in scope the viewer doesn't know wether to laugh at the silliness of it all or shudder at the realistic horror of biochemical warfare and it's consequences.
CANNON FODDER the final entry is probably my least favorite, although it does have a unique look and a refreshingly original story flow as the entire movie unfolds with very few and almost seemless cuts. The camera simply travels around from place to place never stopping, as we follow the lives of a family in a weird alternative reality (or possibly a grim future) where the inhabitans of a city full of giant cannons spend their entire existance firing shells at an unseen enemy.
These are sort of like the short animations from projects such as "Animatrix" and "Heavy Metal" from the 80'ies only better. Each of them adds something new and brings a fresh idea forwards and it is a gem in any collection of anime. Here's hoping more projects like this one will see the light of day in the near future.

5.0 out of 5 stars scent of thought
Magnetic Rose alone is worth the purchase, the following two stories excellent icing.
Mystical romance, quest of spirit, irony of war, evolution of reality itself.

WOW. This is some good stuff, and it should be since it was produced by Mr. Otomo, the same person who created Akira (the reason I am an Anime fan now). Read more
