Legend says that centuries ago, a colossal spider ravaged Tokyo. Resistance was futile, as none could quell the havoc wrought upon the city by the beast. Fortunately, one man—the legendary exorcist—stopped the devastation. Using his divine powers, he sealed the monster away and the world has enjoyed peace ever since.

Mizuki Henmi is an adolescent girl who is acquainted with Shu Suzuri, a dull young man who runs an old Japanese bookstore. During a routine visit to his store, Mizuki learns of a mysterious and valuable book that Shu is planning to sell. Unfortunately, the unrestrained Mizuki handles the book roughly, breaking the seal that kept it shut and revealing an odd entity—a cute spider.

Wasurenagumo tells the story of Mizuki, Shu, and their seemingly harmless spider. However, ominous winds begin blowing. While Shu is infatued with his arachnid friend, Mizuki becomes wary of its every move…

Short but sweet. Animation is nice and stands out at certain part. While there's not to much of a real plot going on in the story you still get a feel for the characters and find them pretty enjoyable.

Now that twist tho...
just a warning, it will cause you to stare into the abysmal space of nothing any where from 5 min to the rest of your life wondering if whether you're angry or not.

The young animator project produces episodes of varying quality, and I believe this is one of the better ones.

With it being a single episode, there isn't time for a complicated plot or deep characters, however the characters here are quite likable, and I was surprisingly attached to them by the end. The plot is simple and the premise isn't even that interesting, but the show sticks with it, and the end you will be in for a surprise.

As to how the end to such a simple plot could be surprise, you'll have to find out, but I thought the defining point was done well, with read more

Young Animator Training Project/Anime Mirai short reviews: Part 6/12

Wasurenagumo tells the story of some nerdy researcher dude and a schoolgirl who has a crush on him, or is possibly his brother? I forget which, and since it’s Japan, they’re practically the same thing anyway. They discover a cutesy little monstrosity that is half adowabubble little girl and half giant spider, which treads this perfect line between the ka/owaii oh man see what I did there I’m so weeaboo it hurts. In my humble opinion, Wasurenagumo is the standout of all the young animator training projects so far. The two lead characters have actual personality and read more

A friend of mine here on MAL asked me to review a series of 1 episode anime shorts that were entered in a 2011 contest to find talented, budding anime directors. The first of these "one shots" I will be reviewing is Wasurenagumo, which roughly translates to Little Spider Girl.

Before I review the anime, I feel it is necessary to give a tiny bit of background info. In traditional Japanese folklore, there is a creature called the Jurogumo which has the body of a spider and the torso of a beautiful woman. The Jurogumo will attract men looking for love, only to quickly devour them read more
