Furiko (Pendulum) is a rather pleasant gem. It's an anime short that manages to capture and invoke emotions in its viewers that's sometimes unattainable by the likes of 20 minute episode series. Where many fail it succeeded with elegance and modesty.

It immerses you into the lives of a couple in an authentic way. It doesn't force itself upon the viewer but gently glides into focus. And with its simplistic flip-book inspired visuals and accompanying somber musical backing, it's able to tell a coherent story that's woven together beautifully.
This is a short tale that leaves an awe inspiring message to any viewer invested into read more

Pendulum not trying to embellish reality, she is represented as. This beautiful and sad animated flip-book is like a drama, all the emotions spend.
Also very tragic. One can easily immerse in the context.

This animation is authentic, it shows Japan as!
The portrait of so many families in Japan ... Life for a Japanese man is his work, always staying out late, drinking Friday night etc.. As a result, the family passes behind, no time for us and without he realizes, he finds himself in retirement.
When he realizes all this, it's too late ... He tries to stop the clock, it symbolically shows that he wants to read more
