People often remember their first love with a bitter-sweet feeling and this theme is mostly prevalent in 9 short tales from Kawaguchi Kaiji, adapted into short animations by 9 different directors.
The stories vary from touching and nostalgic, to cheeky and fun and some even develop into a rather bitter ending.

What they all have in common is the focus on male-female relationship in various interesting ways. You may be surprised to learn, that despite being short, these 10 minute animations tell just as much as a full featured movie, if not even more.

Some of them aren't fully developed, so I can't give the movie a 10 read more
