Hoshi no Koe, Shelter Recommendations
Both involve a girl facing her crushing loneliness, unable to reach those she loves due to a separation of space and time.
Both deal with love that transcends separation through space.
These two shorts both take place in a futuristic setting and tell the story of a lonely girl. They also manage to convey how painful being separated from your loved ones can be.
- Both express the same emotions, sadness and loneliness
- Both have short runtime
- Both use the same plot vehicle to create these emotions, long distance separation of interstellar dimensions
- Both have very undeveloped characters
- Both use the imagery trends of their time, Hoshi no Koe has mecchas. Shelter has moe beauty
- Both put visuals over story and characters, being sort of graphic demos of their era
- I'd go as far to say that both are the same short, just separated by 14 years of progress in animation and different runtime.
