Off Topic: Byousoko 5

Thanks to judith i could see this :) Its absolutly stunning how the makers worked with shadow light and colour and contrast. Seem to be 3 short movies, i watched at least a bit of part one and it is mostly talking. Animation ist walking between "limited" and some "really good" (imo).
But truly, its really nice to watch, i love these backgrounds.
I just wished they would have chosen a more unique Characterdesign than this. I don´t´even think that it is fitting for it :/ But that is just my personal point of view.
Enjoy the visuals

btw. Directing is Makoto shinkai ("voices of a distant star" ,that was this amazing short animation he did all by himself) and the full title is "Byousoko 5- a chain of short storys about their distance"

YEEEAAAAHHH! My brothers and i watch this preview before we draw and it gets us so PUMPED UP! I like you also feel that they should have gone a different direction with the character designs, the animation and the atmosphere seems so DYNAMIC and SOPHISTICATED, and i feel that the characters are a little too, STEREOTYPICAL Anime. But still it looks AMAZING!
