The short anime is something that we generally see as a kind of self-contained story and that’s how it is in Sonny Boy, with the difference that you don’t know what happens when it starts or when it ends . This anime is made based on ideas of the existentialist doctrine in such an organic way, that if you have a master’s degree in philosophy this will be a reference work for any study, but if you don’t know anything… you will end up with your head blown up in a satisfactory way.

Life Is a Dream has its short anime version and it is this … more or less. Serial Experiments Lain is a story in which reality and dream behave in a homologous and parallel way , however it is difficult to distinguish which is true after a while. We cannot guarantee that one is the other and vice versa and that is what you will question yourself for 13 episodes here.

All the wonderful and bizarre style of Masaaki Yuasa is in Ping Pong The Animation , a work he made based on the manga by Taiyo Matsumoto . Here, the implications of what sport represents are raw and wild, from what talent means to how complicated it is to understand high-level sports development.

No matter what anyone tells you, remember that The Promised Neverland only has one season and it’s wonderful . Just as we pretend that Dragon Ball GT does not exist, here we have to do a similar exercise, because the first season of this great manga was an odyssey of emotion and terror that has no comparison with its similar ones .

Darwin’s Game

If you are a fan of action and role-playing sagas, this is definitely your place. Darwin’s Game is a short anime in which a video game takes place in real life and, obviously, it is not as much fun as it can be behind the screen. However , the way he manages to make his world logical makes it also a great action piece with characters that are not only interesting, but also perfectly developed.

Pop Team Epic

Irony is one of the favorite resources of the Japanese to make comedy and Pop Team Epic is the culmination and the pinnacle of what we understand as funny in this same industry. This duo, born from classic comic strips, is exactly the form of animation you deserve after carefully analyzing all the details of Evangelion and Hideaki Anno’s 30 interviews.

Again wondering and questioning where our humanity is is a theme in Eve no Jikan. This small anime, divided into six small but very rich chapters, turns a cafe where there are no differences between humans and robots into the center of a philosophical and technological discussion that will come to our lives at some point.
