Robot Carnival

Synopsis: This is a Fantasia-like anthology of robots. The most noble are Presence, Deprive, and Nightmare. Nightmare is the story of an evil, cybernetic overlord that rises one night and unleashes its robotic servants. Deprive is a science fiction tale of a young girl who has been abducted by an invading army of robots, and only a mysterious cyborg can help her. Presence is about a young toy-maker who makes a beautiful, female cyborg. When she becomes "a bit too real", he destroys her, only to be haunted by her spirit for the rest of his life.

- Hey.

- Nice to see you.

- Nice to see you.

- Hello.

Good day. Such lovely

weather we're having.

Pardon me.

Nice to see you!

Hey! What are you doing?

This is so rude! Stop this!


You insolent children! Stop this at once!

For heaven's sake!

These little brats.

Oh! Hey, stop!

You'll be punished!

Hey! Who do you think I am?

That hurts!

Look at that!

Look how high it went!

Cool, huh?

I did it, huh?

Talk about height!

Delicious soup.

This warmth is a sin.

I'm going out, Papa.

Do your best at work, okay?

My wife is a hard-working

career woman.

I feel envy akin to jealousy

towards her at times.

Because she's dynamic,

assertive, and dependable.

She works hard enough

to put any man to shame.

- Hey! This way!

- Hey, stop it already!

How long are you going

to keep at this?!

My colleagues say I'm a feminist.

I acknowledge that myself,

but it's not quite the reason.

Don't startle me like that.

Break time over. The time has arrived.

Return to your place of business.

Yes, yes.

Work, work.

I have a secret.

I've never told my family, of course.

I've never known a mother's love.

I'm sure that's why... desire to marry

far exceeded most people's.

I sought femininity in my wife.

What's wrong?

Oh, go on without me.

Hurry, please!

I'm coming!

Don't I have a name?


I believe I would

like to fall in love.

What are you talking about?

I don't recall programming

those words into you.

But you're lonely, yes?

What are you talking about?

I think I heard it

in your voice.

You're still a little boy, aren't you?

I'm surprised. You're becoming

aware of such things?

Don't cry out like that.

Don't come at me like that.

What do I exist for?

I want to be closer to you.

Does a machine feel pain?

There's no such thing as

a robot gourmet, right?

Can a robot even

have a personality?

But I know myself very well.

I want to have all kinds

of exciting experiences.

All of my own will.

Oh my.

Such a cynical smile.

Heading out, are you?

Yes, Dad.

Next time, all three

of us will come.

Be good to Mom, okay?

Now, say goodbye

to Grandpa.

See you later, Grandpa.

Make me a toy next time, okay?

Okay. Take care on

your way home.


I've been waiting for my prince.


...couldn't be...

...your "Daddy-Long-Legs."


Dear? The Wind's starting up.

Dear, you're not a child, now.

Do as you're told.

You bastard! Right!

Time to teach you a lesson!

- Yayoi, is it ready?

- Yes, but is it okay to use it without permission?

Won't everyone in the

tenements be angry?

Shut up, dumb-ass!

Japan's in danger!

- Daimaru! Get shoveling that coal!

- Right!

Start it up!

Go, go, go!

Hey, hey, hey! You big stupid thing!

Hold it right there!

Attention, villain who disrupts the

peace of our post-Restoration world!

We of the tenements created this mechanical

palanquin for the harbor festival.

We weren't expecting this to be

Steamer Benkei's first time in action,

but I, Komagata Sankichi won't

move a step from where I am!

Now I'm coming to bust you up,

so you better stay put!

Let's go! Forward!

- Denjiro! Raise right foot!

- Yes, yes.

You idiot!

Move it more gently!

Sankichi! Someone's come out!


Stop it!

Let's see...

That's... oh!

It's a foreigner...

A-A-A foreigner! Hey!

Fukusuke! It's a foreigner!

- Hey, what do I do?

- Sankichi, please, calm down!
