Standing alone in a room with symbols scrawled on the wall, a man dressed as an aviator is left to his own devices.

Gondora is an "ultra-short animation" screened exclusively at the 1997 Daisy Visions, Katsuhiro Otomo, and the New Digital Generation Exhibition. Thereafter, the short could only be viewed on an 8cm CD-ROM purchased at the event. The CD came with a character sticker. Concept drawings for the short were included within Katsuhiro Otomo’s illustrated book KABA 2.

This highlights the struggle people with mental illness have in life or kids who play Fortnite they are the Man that has the plane on his Head not being able to fit in and has to start his own little world where he makes the rules. He makes sounds that block out the outside world. The cool kid or person with Helicopter hat is a regular person who makes proper sounds that being a buzz sound.

If I was a bot could I write pog in the chat right now? "Pog" See look at how un-bot I am. Anyways, if you have any recommendations for Gandora-lovers such as myself, please do message me on ...

It's rated under five for a good reason. It's all style, no substance, and the style isn't even very good. Furthermore, the sounds and music are annoying, and the runtime is only about a minute, so you can't expect any depth. As a fan of both Katsuhiro Otomo and Studio 4C, there really isn't much here to see. For completionists only. The beginning zoom on the character shown on the title art is quite psychedelic. He's shown from a few different angles, and is composited over some live action footage, as if simulating the man moving through a crowd. Another man with a tea kettle ...
