If anime was ever introduced into an arts class this would be the best anime to show to the students! This is actually the best way to descibe this anime.
The anime is divided into different acts, accompanied by a music piece selected to set the mood of each act. While you are exploring the world of Iblard Jikan strange things might happen. Big floating rocks might hover above you or flowers spring into bloom in front of you. The feeling is like you are inside this gigantic painting that comes to life.
This is not an anime for the action lovers. In this world everything has read more

I think Iblard Jikan deserves few words to be spent. Although it could be more properly named 'video art' rather than anime, in order not to raise flames among the conservative otaku (I can hear screams of "Where's the fuckin' plot, the fuckin' characters..?"), and even if I don't play the role of the snobbish anime viewer I understand that rating this work as anime could be confusing.

I think this is not only a gentle, good-vibration-inducing work, but also that its beauty lies in the details and the beautiful hybrid between sense of wonder and warmth: the harmony of the sound of a revolving door read more

What does it take for an anime to be considered a masterpiece? A groundbreaking storyline? Extremely likable characters or maybe great humor?

Well you're not going to find any of that here, however Iblard Jikan does what no other anime has ever done that I've seen: namely tell a story completely without words. It has the most artistic visuals I've ever seen in an anime, and by miles at that. The soundtrack doesn't fall short either, as it has a full OST despite only being a 30 min OVA, and a fantastic one at that.

Despite its complete lack of concrete characters or storyline, it manages anyway. read more

Background: 10/10
The artistry is amazing. The movie is directed by Naohisa Inoue who did the "Whisper of the Heart" backgrounds on the fantasy scenes (which has a similar feel). His paintings commonly take place in the land of Iblard (hence the name). Since he uses his actual paintings the backgrounds look great. An additional bit of info, it looks like his technique is similar to Sachiko's in "From Up On Poppy Hill" http://www.iblard.com/english/draw.html

Animation 2/10
To give the paintings life water effects are added over and other little things, the problem is everything sticks out like a sore thumb. Also they make all the paintings move to read more
