That. was. Beautiful.

I was like watching a Natsume's Book of Friends episode without Takashi and Nyanko Sensei or a Mushishi episode without Ginko
The art and scenery was gorgeously beautiful
and the concept of time and technological advancement was magnificently portrayed
It was a magical experience indeed
Twitter and it's consequences had been a disaster for the human race

Yeah that moment was feelsy for me too.
The young animator projects are mostly trash but theres an occasional good one like this. Very happy that I gave this a chance.

I didn't expect that it would be so good. I love hidden gems.

a common struggle that every generation must face and accept it..for example people(including me) getting nostalgic about NES games or Gameboy whenever they witness today's gaming technology..

Love it. A heartwarming and nostalgic story. The art was beautiful and the animation gave a cozy feel. I wonder what he sold in the end though...

I love this kind of story but they forced the drama to a point it seems irrational.

You have a guy who made a living embracing a new technology and 10 years later this same guy is not able to see all the business opportunities a newer technology could offer? It's like it's not the same character. They turned someone who is pretty clever with a can-do mentality into a complete moron, who is even ready to burn a house out of misguided despair and hatred.

Too bad, it could have been a 10 for me but the writing in the second half was simply bad. Glad it ended well though which makes more sense with the original personality of the character.

Was pretty good, could've been better but the whole thing with him overreacting over being afraid of losing his source of income could've been portrayed much better. Dude was shaking in his blanket in the middle of the night and was about to light fire under someone's house.

Also didn't really like Kamiya Hiroshi in that role.

Lol people who think this isn't believable need to go watch more stuff. It flowed really well and was realistic. I liked it. 8/10

I feel for Minosuke, sometimes technology can be a curse and in his case destroyed his livelihood.
I think this was fine in my view and not that much lesson learned.

Any its a 6/10 from and the art is basic from what I've seen.

Hey, it was ok. A bit boring in the first five minutes but the rest was fine. Second half was silly with the attempted arson but nevermind. The technological progress is inevitable.

6/10 for the anime.

I really liked this except, as others have mentioned, the guy trying to burn down a house. That part felt over-the-top, but I think it could have been pulled off better in a different way. It was nice to see how he mellowed out over time.

I am not sure if the scene where he was trying to burn the house is really that unrealistic, human can make mistakes you know. But that scene is certainly needed for him to remembering again that he also thought that "old technologies have weakness", this scene is a reminder for earlier scene in the start. I know that is a little dramatic, but of course because this is a drama.

This movie is really good and more important, have a strong message ...

That anger towards the progression of technology while he himself was enamored by it when he was small. Guess that's what happens when you grow older and you've built your entire life around an older concept.
I don't think I was supposed to find that overreaction funny, but I did.

Good stuff. The 'reminiscing grandpa' trope was well on display here, but it was executed nicely so I'm not really bothered by it.
I enjoyed how this short represented a vicious cycle to modernity, and how future generations hold the same ignorant optimism as those which came before. The way this idea was represented, however, felt quite telegraphed and erratic. Minosuke didn't respond to the introduction of electricity in a particularly rational way. While a lamp doesn't hold a candle to the efficiency of streetlamps, it makes up for it by being portable, so there's still a selling point. Minosuke, however, responded like you could just swipe up on some technological device and press a button to generate an instant flashlight.
