Anime thread

Thought we may as well have a thread dedicated to anime but ahoy...is that an ulterior motive I see sailing into view? It is you know, so without further ado.

A few years ago, maybe 5 or so, there was an anime short of only a couple of minutes that featured a girl running down a hill that was totally animated by one person I think from memory. Any ideas anyone?

That would be Fumiko's Confession:



Ishida Hiroyasu, who created it almost single-handed, also helped to make the short Rain Town:



Edit: I've added YouTube video embedding to the forum.

Thanks, that's the one. I had a bet on with a colleague at work, and this'll earn me some dollars :)

It's a bit silly but anyway: a girl at work was wearing a dress by this label called Miso, so after a bit of chat I mentioned that offering to make miso can be a way of proposing in Japan, whereupon someone called me out - hence the bet, because I remembered this short (even if I couldn't remember its name - thanks again!).

It's the only time that being an anime fan has benefitted my wallet :)

Has anybody seen Eva 3: You can (not) make sense. The first two were really good, so I had high hopes that this time it would all work out, but...

It's very cinematic, so the big screen probably is the way to go if you have the chance. One thing though - it might be worthwhile reacquainting yourself with the second in the series, you know, not necessarily watch it, but do read a synopsis. I failed to do so, and after twenty or so minutes of being lost, I stopped it, read a plot overview of part2, and then started again; obviously you won't get the chance to do so in the cinema.

[Or maybe I'm just going senile, and my memory's gone to pot, haha]
