Synopsis

An early color animation which uses the color to help tell the story. Three butterflies save a bird that falls out of it's nest during a rainstorm. The butterflies decide to ask the flowers for cover, but the red rose will only help the red butterfly since they are the same color.

Story
Speaks for its self. Good time ruined by a bad event. Friends staying loyal to the end. For me i kind that message to be kind. Especially seeing how today most people are very self strong. My parking space, my job, mine mine mine.

Art
-Characters at the human ones resembles Japanese performers. Mostly because of the white makeup.
-This is a landscape shooting event. Meaning, taken outdoors with nature. Objects in that area are well drawn from the flowers to the trees. Granted it has a cartoonist outlook but still good.

Sound
-has some static.

Character
-unless covered in read more

Hana to Chou, or "The Flower and the Butterfly" by Noburou Oofuji is not just the first full colored Japanese animation on film, it also uses the idea of being able to distinguish colors on film as an integral part of its narrative structure. This was a technical leap in animated film making for the Japanese animation industry, since working with full color celluloid was still an expensive and difficult affair at the time in Japan. The story is about butterflies trying to seek protection from the storm from a flower, who only deigns a red butterfly suitable to save because of their colorful similarity. read more
