Reason for Award
The tense feeling when a boy at puberty tells his first love to a girl is depicted comically. This handsome footage is unique to CG. It is not easy to make people laugh; however, this work made it possible by using a group of Taiko drummers. In many cases, technical attainment tends to be the center of attention in CG production; however, this one-person work was evaluated for its firm understanding of such a context.
