Written and directed by Shurei Morita (Tokyo Ghoul), this short tells the tale of a traveler who's confronted by spirits on a strange shrine during a crazy storm. This short is really beautiful with some pretty inventive scenarios and a great message on kindness and the need to help the unfortunate, even spirits (from what I got in my first viewing). Top it off with some great CG animation by Sunrise (who also animated all the shorts for Short Peace) that looks far superior than recent Sunrise properties (*cough* Valrave *cough*) and imaginative spirit designs with each spirit giving a unique look and charm.

Ahcha Gahcha I love that catchy little song!

Aside from the little song you got to love the c.p.u. animation. It is more digital then regular animation. A 3d outlook if you will. Another aspect of love is you never know what will happen.

Normally i don't like japanese audio... this time i loved it!

However, one draw back is the intro is not quite related to this.

sincerely your reviewer,

would have appreciated this to be mini series. Something with more of those catchy songs and animation style. This anime certainly wasn't 'broken' (inside joke)

Sunrise tried with different art style, it actually worked well. Animation style was pretty close to old style gaming animation. This short story belongs to the movie Short peace, where it appears as the first short. In the MAL data base each short has their own page, so it might make the users confuse.

Story takes place in ancient Japan, where a traveler get lost in the forest due to heavy strom in the night. In search of shelter for the night, he ended up in a mysterious house. At first it appears to be normal, suddenly strange things starts to happen. It has been read more
