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.

Mixed Feelings
Ishida Hiroyasu wrote and directed this one. I first learned about this up-and-coming animator through his graduation project, Rain Town. This was a work that had no voice acting, likely more out of not being able to produce anything of quality than wanting to create something artsy. I thought it was kinda boring, but pretty.

Fumiko no Kokuhaku has no such restrictions. In fact, Fumiko obnoxiously screams for 75% of this short. The art is vibrant, and the animation really pops. There's a ton of variety and showy animation in this one. It's clearly an exhibition of Ishida's animation skills. It also has a surprising amount ...
