It's bedtime, and Nonoko is about to go to sleep. But the play of light and shadow on those objects on the wall look almost like... a person.

A very simple anime, only about 8 or 9 minutes of footage. For the most part I enjoyed watching it, it kept my attention the whole time.

Story 4: A girl meets a spirit and sends her to a dream world. Its very simple and there doesnt seem to be any point to it.

Art 7: Its very simple,but in way that I enjoy, its a very colorful anime.

Sound 7: A bunch of Christmas music,its fits the anime well and even though I typically dislike it,the anime made it bearable

Character 6: Simple little girl and a spirit for the most part theyre boring but enjoyable at the read more

Anime: Superflat Monogram
In both of these short anime, a girl is taken through a journey inside colourful and abstract fantasy world.

They have a similar feel to them, so if you like one, you will most likely enjoy the other as well.

Anime: Control Bear [Wonder Garden]
Both are about a girl who is shown a fantasy world by some strange creature. Both have short episode duration.

Anime: Hanayamata
Both are about a girl who meets a "fairy" that wants to show her new world. While Hanayamata is more slice of life, Tobira wo Akete is more dementia.

similar character design - same director - theme revolves around kids

Anime: Jumping
A short length and plot deficiency aren't the only things that put Tobira o Akete and Jumping together. Jumping into an urban landscape and flying through a variegated dream world gives you the exact same feelings, and definitely brings the two anime together.

Anime: Aru Tabibito no Nikki
Random yet interesting surreal events which seem completely out of this world. Extremely short sequences.
