Anime shorts tend to get very looked over for some reason, despite most of them can be found on YouTube and they're short, so why not watch them? Perhaps this is because for every awesome short, there is another really bad one. Fortunately Yowai Mushi falls in the later category.

Yowai Mushi is a short music video by Tekken, who also did another great short, Furiko. Clocking in at only four minutes, it is about the trials one man faces and how he is bullied like a weak bug throughout the story and all of the terrible things that happen to him. The message to the read more

I usually love these shorts, they're usually good and short enough that you can watch them even if you don't have much time to spare.
"Yowai Mushi" was unfortunately not one of the usual good ones though, in fact it was an awful waste of 4 minutes.

Wow... This really blow me away.
This is one of those AMVs with such a simple but yet beautiful meaning, one that has the ability to touch you way deep down, for me I was amazed.

The visuals on the other hand was perfect for me to this kind of video and song but it might turn people off for various of reasons.

This song is about you, me and all others.

Ever feel like you weren't good enough?

That no matter what your intentions were or how hard you worked, that good fortune always found a way to escape your grasp?

If so, this is four minutes of an intense feel trip that may leave you clutching your knees in the fetal position by its conclusion. A story that follows a man with the worst luck imaginable, despite being such a kind soul who only wants to be happy and please others around him. Set to a very somber, but comforting song appropriately named Weak Bugs by Toshihide Baba
