Some kind of creature with isolated island. A photo of firework made the girl wanting to see it. That means they have to break the rule of going out of the island. A journey to the human world is not so easy for getting tricked by the bird from the circus, but was able to see the firework.

Plot was rushed at the start and all developments were very childish. Growth in main character was forced as well, with his initial childishness played far too strongly. I realise that this show was quite possibly aimed at children and should therefore be forgiven for being essentially childish, but that doesn't make it good either.

Interesting island setting and character designs, simple, cliche, and childish story. I enjoyed it.

I wasn't a too huge fan of this episode though, the art was rather lacking and the story was pretty average but in general it wasn't bad though!

It was Ok, it's been a long time I haven't seen an animation like that. This is a child movie, so I can't really judge it.

I didn't like design of those creatures so much (though I have to say that their older ones looked better) but there were some marvellous backgrounds in there. And some moments (like entering human city for the first time of fireworks) were pretty impressive.

Seiyuu's work was good, especially Kawasumi Ayako (Saber) as Rikotto.

The story was okay for a kids tale, I guess, but nothing special. Kinda reminded me of old Disney series.

Simple, beautiful, and amazingly fun! I loved it!
Best of the 2014 anime mirai batch. I'm surprised I enjoyed it as much as I did.

The scenery was gorgeous, I really loved the design of the island and the beauty of the city. The fireworks were wonderful too.

(It took a long time for this one to be subbed though, holy.)

The animation and color in this short movie was simply beautiful.

I'll agree that it was a bit rushed, but it was still a fun little adventure nonetheless. Although, I think it would've been even better had it been longer.

Rather average, somewhat annoying, weird art (tho I can see how it's cute), and.. yeah.. finished it and left me feeling just.. meh.

I guess now Parol has courage now and he is his former self.

Those barrage of kisses by Rikotto to him suggest that she loves, but she didn't want Zuzu to explain though which was the funny part. So the big bird was the good guy all along, they sure fooled me because An was such a cutie bird. I guess her boss must rethink his dream now since his capturing of those three didn't go well.

Rikotto's dream came true of watching the fireworks and more. 7/10.

A simple story with fresh animation throughout and consistent backgrounds. This year's all the four short films were pretty consistent in terms of quality.
