FEATURE: Newest Japanese Independent Anime Shorts: Part 1

Find a future great anime director!

We Japanese can watch a tremendous number of the newest anime episodes by the professionals on TV every week. On the other hand, many young independent animators are posting their own original works enthusiastically on the net. Some do just for fun, some do for the dream of becoming a professional someday. The quality of their works varies, but their passion is real without doubt.


These are the five anime shorts (1~5 minutes) I have found and thought interesting recently. Maybe you can find a future great anime director among them. Please send them your feedback, if possible. That's what they need the most. Which one is your most favorite?
