Robot Carnival
This anthology contains eight short animated films from top Japanese animators, all concerned with robotics. The range is broad, from comedy to suspense to love stories. Not every segment is completely successful, but the overall quality is high. Dedicated anime fans should be pleased. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

    I first saw Robot Carnival on cable, many years ago. I bought it on VHS, back in the day, and watched it several times. Now, at last, it's available on DVD (Blu-ray would be nice). You can read the synopsis in the product description, and I don't want to spoil anything. I'll just say that this movie is a classic. While some parts may seem dated, I feel that it still holds up today, and should be (IMO) required viewing for any anime connoisseur.
