Randomly searching for shorts to watch I stumbled across Zoo: Hidamari no Shi, I was at first put off by the mediocre art and weird sounds, but within a few minutes of it starting I found myself entranced in the story of this young girl/robot and the mysterious man who made her.

Story - 9
The story is rather simple, especially during the beginning, it simply follows a girl discover more about her world and herself, but as the story progressed I was amazed at how something so short could invoke so much emotion, I found myself tearing up during some parts, something I did not expect read more
