Typhoon Noruda director and Penguin Highway character designer Youjirou Arai created short anime movie for the Kagome juice brand's "GO!ME." project. The short is titled Natsu no Niwa (Summer Garden) and is the first independent anime produced by Arai's newly founded studio FILMONY.

The three-minute video features the song "HEY HEY HO" by ENJOY MUSIC CLUB featuring singer and songwriter Sachie Hiraga. The story takes place in a city turned upside-down after a girl named Mea discovers a stuffed animal with a strange power.

The GO!ME project sponsors "youth who are going their own way." The project's first video outlined some of its collaborations with dancers, musicians, tech innovators, and animators.

A nice little music video, but as always, anime music videos this short really can easily make something so powerful just because it has one goal and that is all.

Natsu no Niwa (Summer Garden for the English title) is no different. It has the general formula in place of using great visuals, great sounds, and little character development that still come out as bright as the sun, all packed in one short (3 min) animation. Since it is a music video I will say that it does feel like it is targetted for children, which it is considering it was a project targetted for them, read more
