I’m also a bear

Animated short film

GODA Tsuneo [Japan]


Makuma-kun looks at an encyclopedia of animals. Each time he turns the page, he finds a different animal until he gets to the bear page. “Hey, I’m a bear, too,” he thinks, and is overcome by loneliness. This coming-of-age story focuses on a character that first appeared in UTADA Hikaru’s song “I’m a Bear.”
