SPECIAL NOTE OF INFORMATION: I noticed yesterday a flaw in my review when i went ahead to watch this anime. That there was a striking resemblance to the 1917 version i saw. While the 1917 version did not have the cover shot image i silently dismissed that as an error of either destroyed film or wrong picture. Somewhere, in my sub conscious i knew the truth but thanks to a friend i now know that i saw at that time a poorly cut/restored version of this film. Thankfully the place i found this piece no longer exists for now but may
reappear in time. The easiest way to figure out if you watching the real 1917 version from what i have been told is a complete different version like urashima taro is. You will note there is different ages of production of that film as well. Made by different artists as well. Which only makes sense that there would be completely different turnouts. Don't make the same mistake i made. When you watch an old show try and look it up by possible year or name to see if others exist like it. The alleged idea i had about two artists co-working on an anime and publishing their part separately may exist now but did not exist then to my knowledge. The good news about this is that having seen this actual film(the 1928) not what i saw in the fake 1917 there is more to the plot. Like i silently thought there to be.
The story has some mild humor as a setting. While the story is based on jealousy. While we all are good in our ways at different things some will take note an harbor a negative resent towards us for it. The negative extend could grow to an extent where they become misguided about who they are but thank fully there is a simple solution for that. The moral of the story is don't lie, you will get caught.
-black and white
Sound- silent film
could use some extra work in either providing more dialogue in written form or better art depiction. For as the story is presently makes you think that the 'find' is treasure which it could very well be but is actually material.
I am sorry viewers of mine for not noticing my mistake on the 1917 version earlier. I promise i will update when i see the actual version. Currently i placed it on-hold as a reminder i need to go back to it.
