Neo Tokyo (迷宮物語, Meikyû Monogatari?, lit. Labyrinth Tales, aka Mani Mani Labyrinth Tales) is a science fiction anthology film conceived by producer Masao Maruyama. The animated shorts are written and directed by Rintaro, Yoshiaki Kawajiri and Katsuhiro Otomo, based on the work of Japanese novelist Taku Mayumura.

Rintaro's Labyrinth Labyrinthos is an exploration into the maze of a little girl's mind. Kawajiri's The Running Man focuses on a deadly Formula-1 race. Otomo's Construction Cancellation Order is a cautionary tale about man's dependency on technology.

Two of the shorts are notable for prominently featuring pieces of famous Western classical music: "Gymnopédies No. 1" by Erik Satie is used in Labyrinth, and "Morning" from Edvard Grieg's Peer Gynt Suites is used in a highly ironic manner in Construction Cancellation Order.

The film premiered April 15, 1986 in Japan.
