story: the premise of this video is to show the efforts of a high school girl as she rushes to get to school on time, with increasingly wacky obstacles coming to obstruct her. pretty simple concept executed in a really interesting way.
art: the art is what really won me over here. there's a vast array of different animate ion techniques being used to paint the background imagery as she runs to school. to be fair, it seems that the entire budget was poured into the background artwork as the main girl has only 1 walk cycle that is repeated over and over again, but it
is a pretty entertaining and well animated one. you don't even notice it the first few times it comes around, but by the fourth time, it becomes pretty clear that the studio spent all their money on the different landscapes she runs through. still a pretty fun to watch.
sound: comes down completely to personal preference. I liked the song.
character: despite the huge obstacle of having only 1 movement animation cycled over and over again, there's a surprising amount of character imbued in each frame. more in just 6 minute video than a lot of full on shows manage to convey over twelve 22 minute episodes. for that alone, i give it a 10.
enjoyment: once again, comes down to taste. if you like more narrative driven music videos with hard hitting emotions and a deep message, this isn't really for you. But if you appreciate animation and the different techniques used to create it, this is a blast to watch.
