Musical no subtitles nor voices with the exception of animation noise.
A dedication to perseverance. Sad to say others would rather help them selves rather than others during times of troubles. While there is some benefit to that there is some benefit against it as well. As the story plays out one finds the moral of the story that there is strength in numbers. A good kind hearted message. The only downside to the film is it is based on hunters. I would say more but that says enough without ruining the story.
Two my knowledge there are two versions of this animation. There
is a moderately colorized and an a high definition colorized version. Noting the difference between the two is easy. I recommend seeing the non high definition version. Personally, i feel high definition doesn't mix well with old art. Not only that but to force modern technology on older technology defeats the purpose for what it stands for.
Demonstrates individual personality.
While i already admitted that this story is kind hearted with it is message it is also perplexing as well. There is at least two takes one could have on this film. The other being the act of learning wasn't done. For example kids will touch a burning stove even though they know it will hurt. In this case a pointless cycle is kept. Despite the perplexing character decisions i suggest watching this animation. While the story did not quite do a good job at illustration keep in mind there is two hunters. This is not a piece where time progresses and it is the same hunter just older.
黒いきこりと白いきこり - Kuroi Kikori to Shiroi Kikori is an animated short film with a length of about 15 minutes including intro and credits. The Anime was first published in 1956 and the story was taken from the original work by Hamada, Hirosuke.
The story appears like an old folk fairy tale revolving around a bear, a fox and a squirrel and their attempt to find a warm shelter during a blizzard. The story begins slowly but becomes enthralling and tries to give its young viewers a moral orientation.
The first thing to be noticed is that the art is astonishingly detailed, especially the character sketches of Mori,
Yasuji, who was and is famous for his cute animal drawings, which are still testimony to his creativity. His work in its entirety, has been relevant for following generation of Manga-ka and up until today has its repercussions on the young generations of Manga-ka. Furthermore, the animation is brilliant, energetic and expressive, please bear in mind that it is 1956 and everything had to be done with cell animation, which is relatively difficult to apply, because such processes require a huge amount of experience, especially in colouring. The art of backgrounds and characters, as well as the animation of fire in an open fireplace, a small running creek and movement in general, elegantly illustrate that we have unveiled an often overlooked masterpiece from the past. Even if you may realize that there is a profound influence, which many Japanese animators from the late 1930s and the coming decades followed, it is still a lovely piece of animation. It took a few more years until the Manga artist, animator, film producer Tezuka, Osamu began to vary many Disney animation techniques in the 1960s which should cause a Manga revolution. Not to be misunderstood here, Osamu-san liked Walt Disney`s cartoons, but nevertheless, he was the pioneer who set a new trend in the Manga- and Anime-Industry in Japan. He also invented the unmistakable "Large Eyes" style of Japanese animation. But that's another story. Sorry, I got a little carried away.
There are no synchronous voices, but gestures and facial expressions make the whole story easy to understand. The music arouses the appropriate emotions in the audience, so that the intention of the plot can be understood well, even if no words are spoken.
Finally, the anime is a little treasure, which - simply put - tells a story about "It is blessed to give instead of to receive". Look at it to the end, you will surely be pleased to have seen the anime.
