Misaki, a 25-year-old woman who is soon to be married, finds an old photo taken at Tokyo Station and an old, broken pocket watch from her late father. Her father worked at Tokyo Station during his life and was a very strict man in her memory, but she saw his smile from the old photo that she's never seen before. Misaki, in attempt to have the old pocket watch repaired, discovers that a watch store existed in Tokyo Station in the past.


Toki wa Meguru was created in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Tokyo Station. The goal of the short anime is to show the history of the station through animation and music.

Story: 7
There really isn't much to say about the story, as it is 5 minutes. HOWEVER, given that, the short works with this time constraint very well through its introduction of back-story through both dialogue and flashback snapshots.
Despite the cliche story and associated elements - in this case, the fate of our protagonist's father, the journey by train, the emotional catharsis through meeting the watchmaker - the emotions built up cannot be disregarded. The short exceeds ...
