Story about Fumiko, a schoolgirl who just confessed her love. But she gets turned down because the boy wants to concentrate on baseball training. Crying and running downhill through the town, she gains more and more speed...
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
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.

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.
*SPOILER OF PLOT*
The "small plot" follows the girl; Fumiko, who wants to plead to the boy she loves. Crying, she runs quickly throughout
the village and she flies, literally, she flies. She will make you laugh by his crazy journey around all~ the city.
The drawings of the characters are quite simple (you simply contemplates a screenshot and check). However, the design of the scenarios are pretty good (really perfect), almost a 3D animation.
My opinion about this? - Interestingly enough, 2 and ½ minutes of video (that you do not waste your time). And adding that it is super-fun, I recommend that you see.

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
of variety and eye candy for a short.
The visual storytelling is one of the best aspects in this story. There are only really three lines of dialogue in this short; most of it is carried purely by the highly expressive and lively animation. But instead of completely ditching dialogue, Ishida adds it when he wants to take the viewer's attention away from the animation and get a laugh.
The way characters move in Fumiko no Kokuhaku is very unique. It kind of reminds me of the old Looney Tunes cartoons by Chuck Jones with the emphasis on the way characters move, and brevity in dialogue. The pacing works well, too, because something is always happening on-screen, but it isn't visually overwhelming in the way something like Bakemonogatari (which is a much more layered show) is. It's eye-catching, and a type of organic comedy on its own.
It's 2 minutes long, it's cute, it's funny, and it's on youtube. Personally, this is my favourite short of his because of how tight the focus is. At no point is it boring or particularly overwhelming. It's a perfectly well-done short with nothing deeper behind it.
