It's a long journey, and I don't need to reiterate what kind of ups and downs happen. We know what they are, even if they don't happen to us.
"Kaigo to Ikiru"/"Living with Care" is someone living this life of theirs and the events that happen. It draws the usual downs: death, sickness, stress, sadness. It's a hard phase no one wants to face but is forced to anyway. It's just hard. But, despite all the hard times, there is beauty in life. It's a lot closer than one would think it is. One doesn't need to look far for such treasures, as it exists,
right in front of you.
That's pretty much the entire message of the short story, even when all looks bad, remember the good things. I've been told the same thing here online as well as some other online platforms with friends I've made. It's a simple concept, but it's hard to achieve for some too.
I liked how this short went around and used a Tekken style animation too, it elaborates in its lucidity as well as the string instruments being used to create that correct atmosphere to enjoy it to its most.
Just watch it, it's a short gem, poking on the simple details one may need a reminder of again.
