Naoko had a fight with her brother over a trivial thing and pushed him away. She knew she was childish but she ran away from home.

I didn't want to review this but it seems many don't appreciate this, so I will give an alternative view for anyone curious.

It seems to be a short of what seems to just be a trippy run of what Naoko is going through. Maybe it is the attack of the outside world that got to her? Maybe it is the views of what people think about her that got to her? Something did, and it caused her to run in this exquisite art piece which is surprisingly enjoyable.

There obviously isn't a lot to go on, but it was truly something of a good simple story ...

The short was nice and simple and quite unique. Since it's just a less-than-2-minutes animation, I think people should just try and watch it to see if they'll like it. Either way, they will get something out of it.
It's not that hard to get actually like others said. From what I understand, Naoko had a fight with her brother and then she ran away, as her emotions were in an unstable state, unrelated words from strangers seemed as if they were mocking her. She bumped into her brother, realizing that her anger got the best of her, and then she broke down.

I don't get it, and probably no one watching will unless they read the description or spoilers first.
It's very short, so one cannot expect a lot of things like plot or development of course. Still, there's nothing to indicate what and why things are happening. It goes from normal to psychedelic (which is visually interesting at least) and then back to normal in a flash... but why?
Oh well, it didn't waste a lot of time at least.
I must write a longer review, but now it takes longer to read this than it did to watch the short anime :/
