Well, what can you say for an anime that lasts 1m 27s :S.
It's essentially a type of romantic thing that i suppose is fairly typical in theme to much of Shinkai's work. It's a sort of silent movie with two characters simply talking about their relationship. Everything within is essentially designed to be simplistic, from the b+w colouring to the absence of spoken dialogue which I think works well within its own context. For something so short I thought it was fairly enjoyable.

This is a short of 1:29 seconds long(around that time) made by Makoto Shinkai in the late 90's(1999)..probably one of the works done by just himself alone..thinking about things and relationships

First of all, I must say that the introduction with the airplain is good(surrounded by a rectangle and a light that gives you really 90's vibes)along with the birds that will be a continuos presence in this short.
Then with the train we got introduced to another theme that later on will be a main theme of Makoto Shinkai's works..such as distance relationships and love and all the
consequences and the effects it can bring.

The train ...

In less than two minutes we are told a story that touches the typical themes found in works by Shinkai. In other words, the focus lies on drama, romance and, naturally, clouds.

But despite Tooi Sekai being as simple as possible due to solely having been created by Shinkai himself, it does not hit home. In seven silent sentences we are told an ultimately forgettable story that comes across more as an idea, an experiment to test his skills, than something with a point.

There is nothing wrong with this. However, it is not very exciting to watch.
