“studio ghibli romances be like “what if we didn’t kiss, but instead both spiritually matured as people because we met each other.”
(it’s what miyazaki wanted)
Oh the movements!
I love how she visualized this, very apt, and beautifully done.
Really just adorable, especially the braces ❤
Such interesting animation techniques, and, of course, one of the first times smear was used. I love it.
Love the speed and how random it feels. It’s true, so it’s punkrock.
Beautiful concept, beautifully executed. I love how flat his drawing style is.
Based on “Histoire de Vieux Crocodile“

The animation in this is just so stunningly beautiful and effective.
Sad on every level
What a beautifully executed idea, simple and powerful.
What a gorgeous and sweet story with beautiful movement and very pretty visuals and transitions.
Very funny and very true.
Very atmospheric, beautiful development.
Sweet story and the owls are funny.
Love the contrast between the simplicity of the line drawings and the smoothness of the animation.
Inspired by the music, I think, follows it closely, but I think it works.
And are those monks sleeping outside? Or do they have tall trees inside?
Sweet story. There is always more to dream.
Starkly beatiful, intense and dark. Both rich and minimalist and very evocative.
Love the collage aesthetic.
I love how this has been animated, almost like animated cut-outs. Very pretty.
I love how much of this is suggestion. Animation always is of course, but I think he does an especially beautiful job of it.
I love how flat this manages to be. It really appeals to me. I also love both how scary it is and how for quite a while it could all be not so scary. Are we imagining things?
I love the cat’s ears and the shadows. Beautifully done.
