I don't know what to say if you can't even spare 15 seconds of your life to watch this.

Story 1/10: There's not really a story here, just a girl chasing a train or bus (I can't remember) that is carrying her dad. The bus/train that goes into a tunnel, which leaves the girl sighing 'Dad.....' In Japanese.

Art 10/10: It's good

Sound 10/10: It's good

Character 1/10: Like I mentioned before, the only character in this story is a girl chasing after her dad and then sighing afterwards.

Enjoyment 5/10: I kinda enjoyed it for god knows what reason

Overall 5/10: Honestly, I only wrote this review because this commercial read more

I'm going to be honest, I don't know what people expected from this 15 second film.

I've read other reviews and they're complaining how there is no "story". It is an ad for a newspaper in Japan. I'm assuming the girl's father left for work and went on a long trip. Before leaving he gave her a newspaper.

She then says "Dad.... thank you."

I really enjoyed this, I guess I'm a simp for Makoto Shinkai because his animation is amazing and I've watched everything he's created. But just thinking of the background of the story excites ME.

After thinking about it i feel like read more

There's not a lot to really say about Shinano Mainichi Shinbun. It i just a 15 second clip of a girl running after a train.

Story: 1/10
There is no story. No context. No nothing as to what is going on. It is just an unnamed girl running after her dad on a train.

Art: 10/10
Shinkai's works are always so beautifully illustrated and animated, no matter how small they are. As usual it has surpassed expectations.

Sound: 8/10
The music was really pretty, despite it not being very long.

Character: 1/10
There is no development with the characters, since you only see them for 15 seconds. There is nothing to go on read more
