She's a grandma (Obaa-chan) with a computer in space!

Computer Obaachan is a silly, charming little music video targeted at children about a space-traveling grandma and her supercomputer, and that's pretty much the entire story. Throughout the short Obaa-chan fiddles with her computer and takes a spacewalk. The short is whimsical in its art, song, and execution. The song will easily get stuck in your head.

The artwork has a storybook vibe to it and while it repeats animation several times, it avoids getting too stale this way.

This is a fun little retro video that may be worth sharing with small children too!

seen via japanese raw

Note: i am not yet familiar with Japanese vocals. I am working on it.

-music: it is slightly catchy. No idea what is being said but i suppose i might be humming the tune if i knew the words.
-plot: carries some nice messages? Again, with no idea on the words i can't be certain but if you show a random meetup with the audience of kids and the first act is touching....well that goes against stranger danger doesn't it. Perhaps, the message was peace be with you everywhere you go? It is a stretch maybe more so then her oxygen read more
