I'm really surprised! This short anime despite being 10 minutes really bought the point of being cognizant and aware that animals that we consume might be in pain or suffering as we know when we consume them. This was done by Koji Yamamura, the highly acclaimed animator that was nominated for the Oscar for his animated short film "Atama Yama". Combined with the English narration, his art style really shore through. The choice of music was appropriate and when necessary, provided tension and suspense. The 10 minutes was over so quickly, it really is a good and enjoyable film. It's easily an 8/10.
