What is it?
The 1987 Japanese anime anthology original video animation (OVA) Robot Carnival.
What is it about?
This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this anime OVA:
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.

I saw this or part of this anime (animated) anthology movie many years ago probably on the Syfy channel, and recently my brother GC and I watched it.
This movie was not as good as I thought that it would be, it was better in the beginning with my favorite being Presence, but things got worse from the middle on; and so overall this was pretty scatterbrained, experimental, and incomplete.
I hope that someone will make a Robot Carnival 2 one day that is better than this.
