Whether you like brainy or brawny styles of entertainment, you won't be disappointed with this collection.

Neo Tokyo is a classic anthology from the (then) emerging talent of Yoshiaki Kawajiri[Ninja Scroll, X: TV, Highlander: Search for Vengeance], the accomplished director Rin Taro [Metropolis, Galaxy Express 999, Harlock, Dagger of Kamui, X: The Movie], and the hit manga artist Katsuhiro Otomo [Akira, Memories, Spriggan]. Rin Taro starts off the film with "Labyrinth", which features a gothic and psychedelic take on Alice in Wonderland in the vein of Coraline. It's mysterious, but charming, in its somber but whimsical explorations of a curious girl. Kawajiri takes the series into a darker direction with his cyberpunk-inspired "Running Man" segment. It features a race-car driver who can't seem to quit his addiction to his car, what with him literally physically connected to it as it he were a computer terminal. An unusually different directorial approach from Kawajiri, Running Man depicts the demise of a proud competitor at the top of his game. The races themselves are also unusual in that they're shown at night with only neon signs to guide the drivers-clearly a race-track the Wachowskis "borrowed" for their take on Speed Racer. Finally, the last segment from Otomo, "The Order to Stop Construction", tries to go back to more lighter fare, although still in the black comedy vein of entertainment. It features a bureaucrat who has to shut down a Latin American-based building project in the middle of the swamp. The problem is that it's so automated that a Terry Gilliam "Brazil"-like automated machine is the only one available to answer to him, and he can't even find it in the mess of tangled wires and parts.

I liked the new of Fist of the North Star, it had a good story, classic fights and bad guys with just enough to make it a fresh dose of an old favorite. NeoTokyo, however, while at one time was probably cutting edge in animation it is now obsolete and should be shelved and used for reference material only, the entertainment value is gone. If you must see what animation was like waaaaay back when, the story of the car racer is watchable, the kid playing with his toys is painful, and the last show has a few humorous moments but it is quite dry. If you can get the FotNS movie for a significantly cheaper price than the Neo/FotNS combo, do it, your not missing much, but if they are around the same price, Neo is Ok for a once through before it's inevitable shelving...
