A tourism promotion anime for Ogaki City in the Gifu Prefecture. The story's script was written by Kou Nakamura, a famous novelist from Ogaki City.
An is confessed to by her childhood friend Yuuki. She runs away from the shock and finds herself time-slipped into the future. With modern tech and flying personal robots, she's shown around by a helpful ikemen named Kibou and his robot rabbit butler. Kibou tells her that she's his grandmother and that Yuuki is his grandfather, and that she doesn't need to be so unsure of her future.
I dunno how this got into MAL's database, or even how it showed up on some of handful of anime websites I visit on at least a daily basis. Regardless, this is rather nice looking short stuff. Based on the info provided, Itsuka Aeru Kimi Ni, which would translate to English as something similar to "Someday I'll Meet You", is actually a half-length tourist promo animation to advertise for Ogaki City, located in the Gifu Prefecture. The script is written by Kou Nakamura, who is fittingly enough a famous novelist residing in the very same city. Whether or not this was meant to be an
anime, it was something I didn't regret checking out, even if it's just an elongated promo.
WARNING: Some spoilers (though it may not matter that much)
Our main girl gets confessed to by her childhood friend. She gets flustered and unsure, runs off, somehow time-leaping (or time-running) into the future full of highly advanced technology and bunny-like peronal robots. The girl, by chance or faith, runs into a handsome young man. The young man then shows her around Ogaki City (which actually helps in terms of promotion value that this short show intends to showcase). The young man then tells our girl that she's actually his grandma, and that the girl's childhood is his grandpa, and that there's nothing for the girl to worry about regarding her future. With renewed confidence, our main girl returns back to her own time and fixes her relationship with said boyfriend.
That's really all there is to the story. Yes I know, plot holes and unexplained stuff about the hi-tech futuristic settings, but let's be fair, it's a 13-min show. There's no way they're gonna be able to cover that within the time span.
The few soundtracks that did play during this short were actually pretty sweet and chill, especially the ending song, which was quite beautiful, imo.
The voice acting is really solid, too, for what it's worth.
The animation quality is actually pretty good, and any CG used, mostly with the robots, are quite alright and don't have the wonky sort of movements I've seen in countless other shows that tend to misuse 3D animation quite often.
Because of the lack of time, the characters aren't actually fleshed out, but there's enough characterization to know who's who, and what roles our small number of cast members play.
It's too short to really get deep into it, but it's really nice to see the character interactions and the scenery of the city. If I were to be a tourist watching this short show, I would be immediately heading out to explore Ogaki City right afterwards without a moment's hesitation. The way the main girl interacts with her childhood friend (or boyfriend/husband-to-be) and her future grandson is really adorable to watch, even if it's way too short to invest enough emotions watching.
Short and simple, but nice and cute....for a tourist promo.
Not exactly something I'd easily recommend, but a good time-killer.
