Kaumori. Very intriguing and worthwhile.
The animation is fantastic. One would only ponder over how such smooth animation with very less frame hiccups was possible for it's time. I can only presume that it must've taken quite the number of pages to execute such an art style.

While the animation does not provide a scientific basis behind their logic this anime took this bat mystery and provided a plausible outcome to some regard. Even if it is told in cartoonist form. As for the underlying message behind the story, life needs to be taken read more
