Everyone handles rejection in their own way. But when Takashi turns down Fumiko's confession, the young schoolgirl unleashes her frustrations on a fanatical sprint through the neighborhood. However, a single misstep sends her soaring, and things go downhill from there...

Fumiko no Kokuhaku, or Fumiko's Confession in English, is an independent two-minute original net animation directed and animated by college junior Hiroyasu "Tete" Ishida, among others. At the time of the short's release, 21-year-old Ishida was studying animation at Kyoto Seika University; primarily animated using Adobe After Effects, his project was uploaded to YouTube in 2009 and quickly garnered a viral status.

Fumiko no Kokuhaku won the Best Film Award at the Tokyo International Anime Fair in 2010 and received an Excellence Award at the 14th Japan Media Arts Festival later that year, the latter event citing the film's "exhilaration" and polished animation. In 2018, Ishida would go on to direct the acclaimed full-scale film Penguin Highway.

As of 2020, Fumiko no Kokuhaku remains available for purchase on DVD. With the DVD comes a soft-cover book detailing the animation process. Additionally, the animation can be found on Blu-ray, bundled with Ishida's 2011 short Rain Town, among other original net animations.

My opinion:

Great anime! Short, sweet, and funny. I have never seen an anime like this so it was unexpected, I saw the first 5 seconds and thought this is stupid, then the girl started running and I just started laughing!


Girl wants to go out with guy but gets rejected.... TWICE.... in 2 minutes! Wow! It might not be a big storyline or plot but it's worth your 2 minutes of time.


The characters suited this anime perfectly, but I feel really bad for the old lady....

I recommend this anime to anyone with a couple minutes to burn, it's not a waste of time, it's definitely read more

This short-film of two and a half minutes, produced by a student of 21 years; Hiroyasu Ishida, of Animation Department of the Faculty of Manga (interesting name), was created from applications such as Adobe After Effects, Soundbooth and Audition.

*Winner of the Award of Excellence Given to students at the Tokyo International Anime Award in 2010.*

We are all used to that. Currently, companies or fans realize a lot of short bored senseless. In this case is the complete opposite -- well that's my opinion.

The "small plot" follows the girl; Fumiko, who wants to plead to the boy she loves. Crying, she runs quickly throughout read more

Having watched this short film, the incessant laughter within ten minutes became my first reaction(and at my mother too and in general we agreed in opinion with that guy is a trestle). And in general, girls, they cruelly declassified us. After "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" (or in Captain Obvious style - Is a bird? It is the plane? No, this that little girl who unsuccessfully made a declaration of love to the guy!) the girl doesn't leave attempt to catch the guy and uses a trump - "I will cook to you miso soup every day". In style - a way to read more
