The love of Japanese high school students Mikako Nagamine and Noboru Tera is tested when Mikako is sent to fight aliens in a distant universe and voice mails to and from Earth become months to years in transmission.
Told in three interconnected segments, we follow a young man named Takaki through his life as cruel winters, cold technology, and finally, adult obligations and responsibility converge to test the delicate petals of love.
There is nothing really substantive about this video, just a cute music video about a girl and her pet hamster. If you're looking for something of the caliber of his longer works, stick to Beyond the Clouds, Voices of a Distant Star, and She and Her Cat. That being said, the animation is still very crisp and vivid, the song is nice, and watching it is a very enjoyable experience.
Apparently, Makoto Shinkai got the idea for this video because one of his friends speculated on how far a hamster will travel in a hamster wheel in its lifetime. Also, people's relationships with pets seems to be a theme in some of his work (She and Her Cat). Overall, I enjoyed this.
