As this is so short, there's not much time for an outstanding story to be told, but in its short duration, Control Bear makes a great impression on the watcher. Throughout the movie I was captivated and enjoyed the whole thing.

Wow!! The art and animation is wonderful. Strongly reminds me of Ghibli. Beautiful colors and character design. Just the art itself makes me want a longer version.

Sound: 10
The continuous song throughout this is very sweet and bubbly. Definitely added to the enjoyment of the movie.

This short takes less than five minutes to watch, but it is a lovely way to spend five minutes.

Story (7):

The story follows a child who sees a moving teddy bear in a shop window. He transports her to a fantasy world full of living teddy bears. It is a captivating, whimsical experience.

The plot is simplistic, and easily enjoyable. Not to mention it is beautiful to watch. I also like the open ending.

Characters (7):

Nothing much is known by the characters. They don't even have names or lines. However, even though they never speak, their immediate friendship is clear through nonverbal communication and facial expressions.

Anime: Superflat Monogram
Wow. I saw a recommendation for these two, so I wanted to see if it really looked alike, but it's almost exactly the same... It totally has the same feeling. It's about a little girl... who suddenly finds herself in a strange world... there are a lot of objects who suddenly are alive and turn into animal kind of things ( well okay stuffed toys and... hm... I have no idea what I should call the other one.) I can't explain it that well, but it is really alike. t has the same kind of music also and it is kind of cute.

Anime: Tabisuru Nuigurumi: Traveling Daru
These are both short films with little to no dialogue, but feature a heartwarming story of a girl's journey with a cute companion.

Anime: Tobira wo Akete (1995)
Both are about a girl who is shown a fantasy world by some strange creature. Both have short episode duration.
