Day 2539: Rin wakes up alone again with blurred memories and still no contact from any other human. She's not bored, however, because in her arms lies a tablet capable of creating any world her heart desires. Day after day, Rin crafts a wonderful reality—one utopia at a time—to shelter her from loneliness, hoping to one day reveal the truth behind her very existence.

This might be one of the worst things I have ever watched.

Let's get two things out of the way. Undeniably, this video looks good. It's well drawn, well animated, and is certainly eye catching with its colorful visuals and impressively imaginative landscapes. As music, this is not something that's suited to me, but I can at least understand people who think that Porter's music is palatable to them.

My problem with this piece is not related to the audiovisuals but rather with the idea that this should be taken as a story or a music video that is trying to be something more than just read more

A Shelter the Animation Review

TL;DR: A short that has an amazing story to it.


"Everyone wants to live in their own world."

Due to the animation being about a 6 minute video, I had very low expectations as to how the story would go in this short. But, I was actually very wrong. It's not a very long story, but it's definitely something to make this animation worth looking into. A 17-year-old girl, Rin, is able to do anything in the world. But, there's a reason why she can do this. You find that out through the music video. The ending of the story isn't something you read more

It's very rare when you get something that is so simple, but yet so powerful. Shelter really reminds me why I love anime. It gives us such unique and fantastic experiences that's hard to find anywhere else.

I'm a huge fan of EDM/dubstep and Porter Robinson is definitely one of my favorite artists in the genre. I've known for some time that he's an anime fan (for example, in his song Flicker you can hear Remon Yamano's infamous laugh), but I'm so glad that Crunchyroll and A-1 collaborated with him and made such an awesome project. We need more stuff like this.

Anyways, Porter and Madeon's read more

Shelter tells the story about a girl that comes to realize the situation that she is in, and how it affects her. The story details the ways in which her life played out before an "incident" and the aftermath of it. A really well produced and powerful piece of art that really tells a nice story. The only thing that hampers the work is its incredibly short length, although I also think that that is one of its strong suits. Very touching, and very well thought out. If this could be turned into a full project I would absolutely watch more. There is definitely potential read more
