One day, I randomly stumbled upon this divine specimen by sheer luck. Little did I know that within this short amount of time, someone could create something perfect.

Story: 10/10

The story follows an unknown man and an unknown deformed woman travelling across a plain. On their journey they discover various different things about life while teaching the audience different lessons, such as appearances being deceiving, the meaning of dreams, the right path towards a bright future and so on. The story is very compact but has a lot of impact. It is truly the definition of quality over quantity.

Art & Animation: 10/10

Truly the great work of art i have ever witnessed. I stumbled upon this masterpiece when I was searching the Dementia Category on KISSANIME by pressing random, and this was the great result of the search. As a watcher of many dementia category animes, I must say this one is perhaps one of the greatest ones I have seen. It gets even more majestic every. single. time. Why haven't you watched it? It's less than 10 seconds long go for it! Watch it!

The entire thing is great. Obviously it has a great story, the art is just immaculate, the sound is superb to anything else, read more

Shigeru is one of the many ONA shorts created by animator Sawako Kabuki. She’s known for her depictions of the female form, which is featured in this short as well.

The only kinda positive thing I could say about this particular work is that within its short run time of read more

*interlaces fingers, bends outwards. Shakes hands.* do you recall jesters? Do old timely? okay, how about jokers? Nothing? *sigh* don't tell me you are not aware of the old Rick Astley joke. I am not sure what started it but took his 'never gonna..." song and was cued in gag videos. I was not a fan but i grasped the idea. Here in this animation is a more lack luster gag. A pointless 10 sec 'meme' if you prefer, that is not only terrible to see but to hear. For it provides nothing of interest. The plot of it as good as expired milk. read more
