I like watching short anime. They are a pleasant break from anime series marathons.
They are usually more sophisticated and enriched from series, because the creator wants to pass his thoughts effectively and has no time to digress.
And if you think about it, in case the result is not satisfactory, you don't lose but a few minutes...
So, I bumped into this.
A young man narrates his story, about when he travelled to Europe for working and studying. There he met a girl with whom he fell in love with, but their relationship eventually became overshadowed by his business life. I got a little impatient at
first, because I wanted to see where it was going to, but the story advanced quite well. I was moved and a little depressed at the end.
This anime is of a certain type, which does not appeal to me anyway. It is called 'ga-anime' and this is the definition that I found on the internet:
"A crossover between a picture book, a radio play and an anime.
The art is static but of higher level than the average anime. The images change in a slow pace carried by music and voice, with small animation tricks."
Soundtrack and sounds where engaging and fitting the atmoshere of the anime.
I liked the way the narrator described himself and his feelings.
I was very interested to see what will happen next. And I experienced emotions of sadness, which in my opinion made it an effective and good anime.
Such brief and meaningfull stories should be given more attention. Maybe someone who read this review will give it a chance.
What did you think of this review?
