Four high school girls in uniforms walk silently on the barren earth. These girls are time travelers who had been sent 6000 years into the future, from their present in which the same day is endlessly repeated, in order to evade human extinction.

They studied time travel in school, were examined by the aptitude test, and were sent to the future as told. What should they do now? They had no idea. The only thing they could take with them from the present was a light, toy-like cellphone. Of course, it receives no signal here.

As the girls are walking, they see strange birds flying in the sky, and a discolored river in the distance.

Then, one girl finds an abandoned house, and recognizes the name inscribed on the front gates.

Mixed Feelings
First off, i have to say i was extremely confused with the whole story in general. The details, characters and everything were so annoyingly vague it had me frustrated to no end.

And i have NO idea how this happened but even though i totally didn't get what was going on, by the end i was pretty much bawling my eyes out. Now i personally think its extremely unfair that i was so 'emotionally abused' by this 30 minute anime movie that didn't even make sense! I mean i have a general 'idea' but basically everything was so vague that it wasn't something i would ...

Did I miss the point, or was there just not one in the first place?

Multimedia projects always have the failing that in order to get the whole story, you have to go through each different part of it, as only then will everything fit together and make sense. And as nice as it is once you have finished, to be able to explain everything and appreciate how tightly woven every detail is, you will always be confused by whichever part you start with, and get spoiled about some aspects of the next.

Quite often, that part can be not just confusing, but ends up really unsatisfactory, ...
