One of the best shorts I’ve ever watched in my life. The concept was innovative and perfectly executed, and fits as an analogy of a person’s life. I’ll treasure this little masterpiece for years.

It tugged at my heart-strings, the wave of nostalgia and the feeling of yearning those past moments that’ll never come back anymore… I couldn’t take it. I cried like a baby.
I think, then procrastinate.
Therefore, I am.

The music was really good. The story was nicely told.

Nothing happens, just some random old man doing what old men are suppose to do.

Half way through I realized I was crying...can't help it I love nostalgic things...
One of the best 12 minutes I've spent watching something, I really can't understand how people don't like this /:
or maybe I just love it because it actually made me cry for minutes?..hahaa

I've never seen an Old man swim down old sections of his house that are now under water and re-live those tales.

Great short, one of the best ever.

Me either. Perhaps I need to get out more?

Who needs dialogue with art, music, and a story like that. Nothing has moved me in a way like this did, stunning piece of work.

I really dug this as a short animated film. Beautiful visual style, great soundtrack (I think I loved this most of all), and a simple yet touching story. However, I'm not really sure if I want to call this "Anime". Not that that's a bad thing mind you, its just that beyond being from Japan there really isn't anything about this that makes it anime. I think I'll leave it unscored, but it was extremely enjoyable.

That was terribly sad. I just decided to watch it 'cause I had a few spare minutes... Ahaha, I wasn't expecting that.
Excellent. You can see the house showing things like the preciousness of youth and how everything seems so simple when you're younger. The art reminded me of those old national film board of Canada shorts. I like it when they can tell a story without words.

I quite enjoyed the simplicity of it, the 12 minutes just flew by as I watched this old man's life unravel right in front of me in a silent and beautiful way.

What an EPIC short story this is.

I think this is the base story for the awesome game "To The Moon".

Anyway, a solid 8/10 from me.

A nice short heartwarming story, with a lot of hidden meaning

9/10 not a lot of anime get me thinking this much.

I personally think that it's about time and how you can't stay in one place forever and you have to move on, the water rising and having to build higher. But when you get older you look back on it.

Maybe it's because I'm still young, that this doesn't affect me emotionally THAT MUCH. But, overall, it was really artistic. Without any kind of dialogue, you can feel the emotion in the story and the feelngs of the old man through the whole film. It was a really nice short, I recommend it. :)

Incredibly enjoyable for a short film. Seeing the old man's flashbacks was heart warming.

A solid 8/10 for me.

Simple but beautiful. I'm deeply moved.
Loved the music, visuals, and the most of all, the message.
An easy 10/10.

its entirely possible that the beginning of Up may have been directly influenced from this short.
"...our faces marked by toil, by deceptions, by success, by love; our weary eyes looking still, looking always, looking anxiously for something out of life, that while it is expected is already gone – has passed unseen, in a sigh, in a flash – together with the youth, with the strength, with the romance of illusions.” - Joseph Conrad ('Youth')

Be honest, did anyone else cry? Sure, I expected to get teary but I didn't expect any of the tears to fall. It was damn beautiful.

Every single time I watch this short, it just gets better and better. Really contemplating giving this a 10, but a very well-deserved 9 for now.

This was one of the best films I've watched, short or otherwise. One of the few things that have ever gotten me close to tears... Gets a very good 8 from me.

An animation simple but accurate. A simple story but it also hits the target.
The colors, the movement, the setting, the characters. The house itself is the subsidy, material of their memories.

A gorgeous anime both visually and in metaphors.

I'm crying. ;~; Yes, I'm a baby, but this man had such a beautiful life. The world was so soft and mellow and loving, too, with the colors and the sounds and the mood that engenders. I wish I lived in an environment with that kind of emotional reality. I'd never paint my world so yellow in my mind. His nostalgia is simply wonderful, and I'm still crying. This is a gem.

That's why he can't leave his house so easily because of the memories he shared with his family together. It was really brilliant.~

I dare an animator to trump this with another 12 minute short! Would be really tough because I think this is a masterpiece. The fun thing for me is I watched this for the 'first time' just now only to realize that I actually saw this short a long long time ago when I was more interested in western animation (ie. fantastic planet) and other shorts rather than anime. Was just as impressed then as I am now.

I like how the old man tries to keep living despite his circumstances. The memories he had in the past is what he holds most important. It was simply beautiful. In a matter of minutes I was filled with many emotions.

A very good short film. The premise is somewhat the same from Up!
I like the acknowledgement of Global Warming here (rising sea levels).
There are no words needed to depict a beautiful romance...

I thought this movie was romance when I first see it, but that is okay.
These moments was good.
