Animated short film [Japan]



This short animation depicts an unusual world of an unidentified monster that suddenly appears in the everyday lives of the boys and girls in the story. UKI Atsuya, who has won an award for manga, now takes on the field of animation, and takes advantage of his design aptitude and sense of color. Another great feature of this work is that UKI took charge of the entire production process, including directing, writing and drawing.
