A penguin named Andou protects the forest and its animal inhabitants from the evil humans (or the "cancer of the Earth" as one sign in The Animal House reads). However, some of the animals suspect that Ando himself may be a human.


Winner of The Festival Choice Awards at the 2007 Toronto Japanese Short Film Festival.

After rating this 5 minute short at a 9 despite the overall score being so much lower, I couldn't help but leave a short review to defend it.

Mr. Ando has been around a long time, I remember watching it 7 or 8 years ago on YouTube as a middle-schooler. I thought it was goofy for sure, but after coming back to it as an adult, I have a newfound appreciation for this spectacular short. I'd forgotten all about Mr. Ando until I saw that its director, Takashi Taniguchi, would be returning with a series of shorts for this Summer 2017 season, titled Piko-tarou no Lullaby read more

A 6 minutes One episode anime

Do you like weird? Especially some really Japanese ish? Well here you go, knock yourself out with this one XD
Mori no andou has this same kind of weirdness and somewhat visuals just like the infamous Onara Gorou.

Truth be told I really don´t know what to say besides it is epic in its weirdness XD This is the one you troll your friends with but still having a chance of not loosing your friends compared to other shocker videos.

Well I had a fun time, 6 minutes I will never get back but which was somewhat enjoyable in its weirdness read more

very bland. Guarding land. Character's actions on reasoning is bad. For example one character clearly makes a statement on observation and was very descriptive with what he witnessed. Then comes another visual test and he fails hard. what?

Poorly animated. Color use was fine. Art did not look realistic.

I am not 100 percent sure but sounded a whole lot like a one man band. where one person is responsible for vocals for all characters. In some cases the vocals were dry due to lack of enthusiasm. As for special effects they went the cheap way. They made or attempted depending on view by read more
