I've watched this... delight.. with my dear friend Ennetsu as part of our hobby (don't ask). Which is watching art films that - in our opinion - don't have a place on MAL.

The score I give is usually meaningless, since these films/animation projects are very different in structure to the more conventional anime on the site. Their intent, distribution, origin is also not comparable. In themselves, these films have nothing going for them, only that they're art films for the sake of being an art film. This is why a more objective score is nigh impossible to give.

Nothing's stopping me to give impressions though, read more

This short was funny in a weird way, as I said in my review of "The thing of rotation of a child." It would only appear to you if you have an immature sense of humor, meaning that you laugh at anything meant to be funny.

This short makes no fucking sense, and that's what makes it so funny. The frogs spinning the shell, then one jumping on the other, the schoolboys (I assume) watching a turtle on it's shell, just the whole idea of this short makes me wanna smile at how absurd it is.

Art is pretty good for an anime that read more

Story
Transition wise story succeeded. Even relating back to introduction was done in a nice looping format.

Art
Art provided a suggestive thought that kids were animals that they were studying. But as to what goal was being illustrated remains unsolved. Was it suggested that while kids elaborate on how foolish animals behave in truth they themselves are no different? Was the plot/art trying to state how things in life have pros and cons? Was there intended to be a notation on cruelty brought on by humans to other living things?

Sound
Not sure what impact muffled whispers had on story but my ears regretted its existence.
