Due to the lack of free time which is supposed to be allotted for my daily serving of anime, I resorted to watching short anime films and such. Of course, I was hoping to find something as magnificent yet light as Tsumiki no Ie. Then I stumbled upon the 4 short anime shows that comprised the 2010 Young Animators' Training Project. As the name of the said endeavor implies, its an on-the-job-training project funded by the Japanese Animation Creators Association to train fresh aspiring animators. Although I found it not as touching, unique and outstanding as Tsumiki no Ie, this anime collection was still worth read more

Warm and nice story about family and frenship. About feelings. Good things come then you realy need them even if you do not expect it. Anime about little miracles in our everyday life. I realy like this kind of stories and would like to recomend it everyone.

Art is simple enouth but for this kind of story is the best solution. It reminds me oldschool anime were main thing is story, not art. Characters are interesting and in 23min we can see all disposition.

Young Animator Training Project/Anime Mirai short reviews: Part 3/12

Wardrobe Dwellers is basically Snow White if Snow White was a Japanese salarywoman. Also if Snow White didn’t have any singing or dancing or evil witch or basically anything interesting at all. A salarywoman moves into an old flat where magical fairies live in her wardrobe who tell her to kill hookers and something about her grandmother also owning this wardrobe. It’s supposed to be about the passing of generations and tries to lean on the nostalgia button, but never really pulls it off. Characters don’t show enough emotion or personality to feel anything from their reactions read more

Both are short anime about how to manage is a household. While Peeping Life is only about how to save electricity, Tansu Warashi is more general. Both have cute-styled animation.
You know, Watching Wardrobe Dwellers felt just like an episode of Bunny Drop. Beautiful and Heartwarming !
