Fumiko, a timid school girl, shyly confesses her feelings for a boy named Takeshi. But rather than return the sentiments, he apologetically explains he needs to focus on baseball instead! Crying and embarrassed, Fumiko runs away down a hill – but she goes so fast, she can’t stop!
Half the length but infinitely more funny.

Either way, spend your 5 minutes watching this instead and you'll thank me after.

An old man who is the headmaster of a primary school bordering the ocean paints a picture of a whale, an animal he had seen so often off the coast when he was a boy and now sees all too seldom. He reminisces about his youth, when he simply considered whales a source of food, though he vividly remembers a time when a whale was speared by a whaling ship. He knew of no other way to treat whales then. But that day he sees the first whale he has done in a long time - and it is beached against the rocks. He races out of the school to come to the whale's aid...
Charming little adverts are first that will completely change you're view on them in the last few seconds.

Watch both if you enjoyed that "Yay! Yay! Awwwww, pfft..." feeling.
Both anime were made to promote the city where theytake place (Kobe in "Kobe to Watashi" and Toyama in "Toyama Kankou Anime Project").
Also both have a similar feeling so if you liked one you should try the other.
