Concept Sentences

Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots is the story of a young artist struggles in a insensitive and programatic world.

Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots is a futuristic story of a young artist who finds support on the love for a professor to break through in a programatic world that forgot the value of art.

Set in a futuristic and programatic world where success is exclusive to rich people with access to medicine of high performance, Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots tells the story of young artist Yoshimi. To express her art and find peace with herself she will have to forget her pride and allow her beloved professor Joakin help her fight the status quo.

Fuch’s reactions

My version of Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots happens in a not so far future in a multiracial metropolis. Spaces are modern and over designed with straight and curve lines. The temperature is a bit cold. There is no gender or racial inequalities, but hierarchy is defined by financial status. Wealthy people has access to modern pills that make their brains and bodies work in a much faster and efficient way. This new class of super-humans created with the help of expensive drugs were nicknamed Pink Robots. Every one has a public score that define access to jobs and other opportunities. In this data driven word, people forgot the value of art and emotion. Relationship are very rational and never last longer then one date. People wear very functional garment, that reflects an ideal of an athletic lifestyle.
