Humans: the only beings able to change Earth from worse to better; or from better to worse. Combining our survival insticts and our high intelligence, we humans are able to set long term goals depending on our needs - and daily strive to achieve them. We inquire, then we are looking for an answer. This is our nature, this is how humanity manages to have absolute control over the planet.

Note: Forgive me if I miss some parts or forgot to mention something. I saw it on premiere in an animation festival, so I can't rewatch it.

Je t'aime is a fairly enjoyable short, but don't expect groundbreaking story mechanics of any sorts.

The concept is relatively simple. Situated in a ghost town, there resides a dog that's aching for contact with another living entitiy. This is very obvious: the dog roams the streets without other living soul, and just wanders around with no purpose. These particular scenes would also show off how refined the backgrounds are.

Found this one on Youtube. I don't know where it can be seen otherwise.

All in all, it's an ovni in anime world. The story here is really simple. It is about a lonely dog who desperately wants to find someone to play ball with. You see him wander thoughout a desterted Tokyo, and there are hints that something terrible has happened not so long ago. Probably an idea of the end of the world.

His day by day wanderings, on a music by Glay, leads him to meet some automated android, which purpose is unknow.

Even though it's rather simple, it looks more like something you could read more

Mamoru Oshii's Return to Anime!

The director of Ghost in the Shell hasn't directed an anime movie in eight years, but somehow Adult Swim has managed to coax him out of animation retirement for a "micro-series" next year. Let's take a look at his history as a director, and what we can expect from the return of a master.
