NOTE: This anime is more than 5 minutes long. This runs for roughly 13 minutes in length
Overall a great job. However, it was a tad contradicting. The wording used showed they wanted to be spot on with the truth. As indicated by "sportMANship" was replaced with sportBEASTship. However, they decided to go with a cartoonist approach. Which meant taking in realism like reality was out of the question. That was a slight issue on contradicting. The main one was the ending. Without much in terms of spoilers it involved was could be seen as a balloon but turned shortly into an anvil.
A significant difference in weight. They did it for a final laugh but for me was rather foolish.
-black and white
-background was nicely done. Not skipped out on. Also depending on the scene the background it even played into the cartoon.
Sound- a silent production could be improved with a remake including animation sound and voice.
Character- not relevant
Enjoyment: Despite the general issue i had of realism i found the animation to be a delight. Using the cartoon aspect they turned what you would think would happen into something different. An excellent idea for that act stopped you from knowing what was going to happen. In other words kept your interest levels in check. However, if this was not your typical idea of a quick race try the anime Dankichi-jima no Olympic Taikai. That anime has a different spin on what makes a race.
