There is a world in which an endless rain of dark ash fills the sky, and covers the earth. Humanity, fearing the ash that burns and melts away human flesh, had no choice but to cover themselves in protective suits, and their faces with gigantic masks. Bundled up in their suits and hidden away behind their masks, the people have fled deep within the underground. This is the story of the children growing up in this fearful world.

As time goes by, more and more people are dying in the colony which profoundly affects the moral of it's inhabitants, who have indulged in religious acts probably to keep their sanity. Whereas Aki is drafted to the Salvage Unit, Fuyu completes a drawing illustrating his conception of the outside world, according to Aki's description. However, one question remains : what is the ...

Short review though TLDR below :p

The outside world is a strange place. We know it's there, but what do we know it has? You can't tell for sure unless you go and take a look for yourself. In doing so, do you think you have taken up the correct choice? Sometimes the knowledge of the unknown will bring about happiness and excitement, whilst other times sadness, god forbid trauma, or maybe, it is straight-up anti-climatic. You just don't know.

And whilst ignorance is bliss, to protect us from risk. As the Latin language beholds, "scientia est potentia".

I don't need to give a synopsis of the ...

I decided to make this review since there are only 2 other reviews, both of which give this short movie an 8/10. There are fundamental flaws present in this work that I strongly consider bar it from such a rating.

These are that the story is dull and the animation is trash.

The story revolves around a mute, sickly boy, bullied by his peers and with only one friend. He is passionate about art in an apocalyptic grey world. You see the problem here? It's like I'm reading out of a checkbook of pity tropes. The main issue is that a fat half of the runtime is ...
