this is exactly as the synopsis says. Tezuka's Jumping is about a boy who goes on a walk, that turns into a jump that just keeps getting bigger and bigger each time his feet leave the ground. oh the places he goes and the things he sees. there is no story beyond that, but the sounds are kooky, yet appropriate, the art is the same Tezuka we've come to know and love and as for enjoyment, this is a very good way to spend 6 minutes of your life...so many little quirks and easter eggs

Its premise is simple, but what makes this short so engaging is its extraordinary execution. Tezuka, along with a few other rather skillful people, pour in a stupendous amount of effort only to be met with worthwhile results. The visual perspective we see is from a child's point-of-view whilst plummeting and rebounding across several spots. He travels throughout a forest, cityscape, ocean, and, ultimately, an active war field. Although being a Japanese production, Jumping features character designs that have a more classic western cartoon flavor to them, effectively making this short feel moderately more special compared to other anime of the time. Animation moves rather read more

Wow! Who knew looking through anime from the 80s would let me find such a breath of fresh air?

This short anime, directed by the acclaimed Tezuka Osamu, is about a child that starts walking down the street and has to jump to avoid an accident. After that, he decides to keep jumping and goes higher and further each time.

The awesome thing about this (at least for me) is that it is all in first person perspective the entire time. Perhaps there were other anime shorts that used first person before Osamu thought of the idea, but this is the first one that I know of, read more

No vocals per-say it is more grunt noises like screams.
genres: comedy, adventure

Warning: you might feel a tad sick if you are like me and hate roller coasters.

basic. One could say there is no story behind it. Although, there could be if you think about it. Many things happen with each second. Being born in this world we can only see them one at a time for we don't share the abilities to see from multiple areas (as in more than one person's eyes). Jumping, is not only an on going adventure to explore but to grow as well. Sadly, that is where it read more
