Batter up! A rousing game of baseball has begun, pitting the nimble rabbits against the hardy raccoon dogs. As each inning passes each team bats and pitches their way to glory. Once the baseball goes missing, though, the game becomes a lot harder!
A great war is being waged! Birds, beasts and bats fight each other in an epic battle that wages on hillsides and near trees. Who will win, and how will everyone celebrate peace once blows have ceased?
Both of these animated shorts depict animals partaking in more human-like activities. Though Oira no Yakyu focuses on baseball and Komori on warfare, if you like personified animals, then oth of these will be right up your street.
Aboard a steadily moving train, countless passengers enjoy an interesting ride. Hippos litter the aisles with banana peels, horses drink plentifully and various others wait patiently to use the restroom. Along the way, the young conductor dutifully walks through the cars, keeping peace wherever he goes.
Though entirely different in content, both of these classic animated shorts focus on the hi-jinks of animals who are acting in a more human-like way. If you enjoy that sort of thing, then you'll like both Taro-san no kisha and Oira no Yakyu.
