  • Absolutely gorgeous!
    This six minute short is one of the most emotional and beautiful pieces of work I have seen. With an amazing soundtrack, touching story and breath-taking animation, this short portrays a heartwarming yet simple tale that shows the impact of both love and solitude in only a matter of minutes. Keeping the narratives to a minimal, it relies on its beautiful visuals to portray its simple yet ...

  • I'm legitimately hopeful that I'll find another experience on the level of "Shelter" in my lifetime.
    From the first time I heard this song, it resonated with me. I first heard Shelter in some random YouTube video and was like, "WTF, why am I on the verge of tears just from listening to this song?" And that was just from hearing the music portion of the song.

    A few weeks later I found that the song was part of 6 minute music video, so I watched that. I felt like a 5 year old watching a favorite ...

    una obra maestra tanto en lo visual como en lo significativo
    por donde empezar, este clip es de lo mas hermoso, la música en el transcurso del video es muy buena, la animación es fantastica con una buena fluidez junto con una paleta de colores que van acorde a el entorno, con un trasfondo magnifico y triste, para los 6 minutos que dura este clip transmite mucho

    6 minutes. No reason NOT to watch it.

  • Music (10). Animation (10). Story (10). Time to Watch (a lifetime compressed into 6 minutes).
    When I first saw that it was a single episode, and only six minutes, I thought: this can’t be that good. Now I think it is redefining what “10 out of 10” means for me.

    The song is gorgeous, as are the vivid colors, sweeping scenery, perfect animation, and mysterious, heart wrenching story.

    To those who complain they “don’t get it”, I understand. The first time I had a slight inkling. The ...

    A DEDEDElightful short
    its pretty much SAO II medicuboid arc but with a story.
    it is pretty good, and I liked the Majora's Mask reference.
    Overall, its a 8/10, i only say not 10/10 because its only 1 episode

    overall its a DeDeDelightful short!

    Take 3 eggs, crack them over a glass, take a fork, stir it around in the glass, then pour the egg batch into a pan. simmer over medium-low heat for 5 minutes or until ...

    I don't understand why people like this show
    I saw all the good reviews and had high hopes it might be decent. It doesn't even make sense and most of it is this awful music. There aren't any other characters beside her and she literally has less than 10 lines it feels like. There are a bunch of story telling without the use of words and even then you don't really understand what is going on. I am glad this was only 6 minutes.

    This was sad, happy, and most importantly, heartwarming.
    Lemme just get this out of the way first. Some people might not like Shelter. That means there is something wrong with them. I think it is often because they compare this to anime. Don't. This isn't really anime. They just got a voice actor and used that style of animation and art.

    Some people might be happier thinking of Shelter as an expensive music video. Some people might be happier ...

  • Art with a Beautiful Story. Pure and Simple.
    This little animation is just super cool - I can't say much without giving anything away, but its got gorgeous animation, fitting music, and a short story that hits with the punch of a full anime. It leaves the viewer wanting more, but is full enough to be self-sufficient as well. If you haven't seen it yet, then you are in for a big treat.
