Magnetic Rose is always unconvincing, and the story grows, and grows and becomes unbearable - the artwork saves it. Stink Bomb has the same problem. There's nothing worth developing there, it's just an idea growing to a paroxism of stupid. But brilliant artwork, and great humour. Cannon Fodder is a great idea, brilliant! The artwork original. But the story unfolds strangely. It seems to stop before it gets anywhere.
yep the Magnetic Rose were the one who deserved the maj. stars but I Loved Cannon Fodder too.. the scene's transition was so artistic. kinda Surprised when i noticed it was belonged to Otomo-sama
Magnetic Rose 4/5
Stink Bomb 2'5/5
Canon Fodder 3'5/5
Magnetic rose: 3 stars
Stink Bomb: 4 stars
Cannon Folder: 5 stars
You might want to read this AFTER watching the movie. Although I don't agree with many of the author's statements, this is a very detailed and extensive review.
"Cannon Fodder" is a wonderful movie.The drawing style, the one shot camera work, its rhythm... Amazing movie.
Was not really able to enjoy the other two.
I respect "Magnetic Rose" for its story, but the late 80's style of the cartoons... Maybe it goes well with the story, but didn't catch my eye.
And there's nothing to say about "Stink Bomb", better not spend your time talking about it, neither watching it.
An interesting anime anthology film. Magnetic Rose is a very powerful and a heartbreaking story that shows how we cling on to our memories, wanting to repeat our favorite moments forever. Stink Bomb is darkly comedic story about a worker who has an odor that can kill anyone, funny if an average story. Cannon Fodder is a very beautiful looking anime, something that resembles an avant-garde European animation film.
The first film (Magnetic Rose) gets you excited for the next 2 parts with an interesting space/horror plot but other than the interesting art style of the third (Cannon Fodder) it doesn't ever build on the excitement that it starts with.
