Ah, Mirai Mizue, every indie animator nerd’s favorite screensaver virtuoso’s latest outing is a collab with idol group “Maison book girl”.

For as layered and elaborate as some of Mizue’s animations are, very rarely do they convey a narrative as much as they are vehicles for his sensibilities as an animator. “Kanashimi no Kodomo-tachi” is not much different in regards to his other animations. And suffice to say, considering the structure of most works I’ve seen in Mizue’s catalog that I’ve been able to get my hands on, I’m surprised he hasn’t collaborated with more artists in this capacity.

I never really made the connection ...

Kanashimi no Kodomo-tachi might be the best Mirai Mizue’s work so far. Of course, and unfortunately, yet again massively underappreciated by most enjoyers of casual anime, like the rest of his production.

The music video is great combination of a catchy song (one that actually made me search for more song by the artist) and mesmerizing animation. The directors typical style of morphing fantastical creatures is applied to the humanoid cast of this Kanashimi no Kodomo-tachi and it works better than expected. The result is surreal, flashy, colorful and mindblowing (in some parts literally) work of art, with the content itself having interesting psychological implication ...
