Have you ever peered through the window on a rainy day, and, against all sense or reason, felt like venturing through the quiet outdoors?

Rain Town is a 10 minute short depicting such an experience. Ishida Hiroyasu (at only 25 years old) is a name that is quickly becoming known throughout the animation industry, and with a work such as Rain Town, it is anything but undeserved.

What makes Rain Town such a special anime is how much it accomplishes with so little. There is no dramatic storyline about humanity's survival, nor is there complex characterization to grab the audience's attention. Rain Town seeks instead read more

“Everyone wants happiness, nobody wants pain. But you can’t have a rainbow without a little rain.”

In our current society a good majority of people have been far too desensitized by the simpler forms of entertainment. We've become too entranced by pop culture, repetitiveness, and fitting in with the trends. Most forms of entertainment nowadays are filled with cliché explosions, overly sexualized figures, and cheap antics to keep us entertained. Is that a bad thing? No, not necessarily.

Walking down a rainy isle, listening to the pitter-patter of the raindrops makes Rain Town a magnificent short film I have ever seen. No words could describe of how the story was really well mad. Original and ground-breaking music that always calms me deep inside. This was a worthwhile film to watch.

First of all, I'd like to say that actions speak louder than words. Notice that there aren't words being said in this film, basically means words are not necessarily needed to be understand. Just the sound of the rain needed to make this film beautiful as it already is. The way the characters act read more

Alone, a little girl explores her dreary town. Only the sound of the rain can be heard. The only shred of life/light seems to beckon her through a dark ally. The scenery consists of low hues of blue and this town is reflected perfectly in the puddles below... The things that were lost and never found lay dead and lifeless in these reflections. But she will always cherish the memories and the friend she made that day...

Rain Town evokes a feeling of melancholy and loneliness, however there is also a reminiscent feel of childhood. There is some symbolism in this anime.
