"Anthologies can sometimes be memorable and amazing while they can also be bland and forgetful. Katsuhiro Otomo has had experience in the past bringing an anthology of short films together with his release of Memories. Now once again Otomo has brought us a new anthology called Short Peace that focusing on four separate stories called Possessions, Combustible, Gambo, and A Farewell to Weapons. The question is, does this anthology deserve a spot on your shelf?"
