Watching this ancient short made me stare at the screen.

I even watched it 3 times. It definitely has to be one of the more obscure, intriguing and WTF entries here on MAL.

The chorus is catchy. Found myself humming Dom-dom hya-la-la, dom hya-la-la the second time I watched it.

The master of cut-out and silhouette animation Ofuji Noburo did an impressive job animating it.

Story is ultra short, and still he manages to get the message through. A celebration and homage to life, prosperity and the gods.

This one is for sure the most ancient piece of Japanese animation that I have seen, but its a good piece of history. And the best thing is that it has been fansubbed for our historical hunger and pleasure.

The little film is a black and white pretty old version of a karaoke song. We have a song playing and the Japanese characters coming and going along with the lyrics, pretty much in a modern Karoke fashion telling us about the Harvesting theme. This shows us how far back Japanese people have been into Karaoke and how important it must be for them.
