Really cool to see 15 different animators work with only 60 seconds to make something creative and memorable. A few were better than others, but they were all great.

Story: 7/10

Art: 10/10

Sound: 8/10
The music and different voice acting that each animator presented were ...

Gyrosopter (7)- I'm not a huge fan of CG anime, but ...

AniKuri15, a captivating compilation of 15 short films from several diverse studios, offers a glimpse into a world where abstract visuals and animation dominate the limited runtime.

The series presents an array of distinct art styles and visually engaging animations, with numerous shorts deserving high praise. However, unless you possess a deep passion for animation, AniKuri15 proves challenging to recommend due to its specialized content that caters to the discerning tastes of animation enthusiasts.

My personal favorites include "Hidden Princess," "Good Morning," "The Assassin Comes to Hunt in the Mountains!!," ...
