A traveler is confronted by spirits in an abandoned shrine; a story of honor and firefighting in ancient Japan; a white bear defends the royal family from a monstrous red demon; ragtag soldiers battle a robotic force in futuristic Japan.
On what apparently is a parallel world, time flows in a much slower pace than normal. The ocean remains on a solid state of matter as the eccentric individuals who inhabit this land casually wander over it.
A trilogy of separate stories. In "Labyrinth labyrinthos", a girl and her cat enter a strange world. In "Running Man", a racer takes on the ultimate opponent. In "Construction Cancellation Order", a man must shut down worker robots.
I have absolutely zero idea what was going on in this short film but it is absolutely gorgeous and shows a very well thought out and dizzyingly detailed world that adheres to some wild logic that we as the audience are not privy to. The music is great, the ending theme done by Crystal Kay. Would highly recommend to fans of great fantasy and followers of the unclassifiable genius of Masaaki Yuasa and Koji Morimoto.
