In 42 seconds this commercial tells a true tale of fatherly love. It really makes you know just how much the father loves his daughter, which is a lot. It reminded me of my childhood, when I was loved.
With beautiful backgrounds showing the lovely seaside town it takes place in and gorgeous character work it is a visual spectacle for the eyes. The use of manga panels to indicate that this is, in fact a promotion for a manga is genius.
The soundtrack is not prominent, merely accompanying the visuals in its own subtle and perfect way. The voicework meanwhile captures the very essence
of the characters. Hearing Hime's voice instantly makes me feel every feeling a father could have for their daughter, while hearing Gotou's voice instantly puts me inside the role of a father. They truly are magnificently portrayed in what they are from the manga. The doubt as Gotou realizes his real life as a manga author might be discovered, the curiosity of Hime, it all makes me tear up.
In conclusion I have to say that this is certainly the best 42 second anime I have watched in my life.
