Neo Tokyo (Meikyū Monogatari note ) is an anime anthology film released in 1987. The film has three segments:

  • Labyrinth (directed by Rintaro): A girl and a cat wander through a surrealistic city and encounter a circus.
  • The Running Man (directed by Yoshiaki Kawajiri): A race driver has telekinetic powers, which go out of control.
  • Construction Cancellation Order (directed by Katsuhiro Otomo): A robotic construction crew won't stop working on a cancelled project.

Streamline Pictures released an English-dubbed version under the title Neo Tokyo. Later, ADV Films released a bilingual DVD with the Streamline dub, still titled Neo Tokyo. Also, The Running Man was featured in one episode of Liquid Television (with a different English dub).

Tropes:

  • Superpower Meltdown: This is pretty much the entire premise of the second segment. A race driver's telekinetic powers go out of control, killing all of his opponents and ultimately himself.
