Synopsis:

In a futuristic city filled with flying cars and a top-notch police force, a winged beauty has been chained up in the depths of a dark room. Her benefactors are none other than two members of law enforcement who decide that she must be set free – their jobs or livelihoods are unimportant compared to their goal. The two men find the heavenly creature and set forth at top speeds to set her free, with others hot on their trail.

A four-leaf clover is said to be a being that cannot belong to anyone; and if she learns to love someone, the world is in the palm of her love's hands. One such clover longs to leave her lonely captivity; and she has met a man, Kazuhiko, who she hopes can finally take her from this place. What lies in store for the clover and her love?

Yes, it's true that Clover and On Your Mark are both music videos; but beyond that, each involves a certain winged beauty who is escaping from an ill-conceived fate. The tone and feel are the same - try them on for size.

Both Clover and On Your Mark are short, sweet little music videos. Though the tone of On Your Mark is more upbeat, both are worth watching for their beautiful animation (CLAMP and Miyazaki, respectively) and their music.

Iblard Jikan

Iblard Jikan
  • OVA (1 ep x 30 min)
  • 2007

In a lush and detailed fantasy world, magical airships sail amidst floating islands and villas. Luxurious earthly homes lie amidst hillsides of flowers and trees, and a lone pond houses a single shoot of life. Miniature tram cars come and go, ladies’ dresses flutter in the breeze, will o’ wisps dance in the midst of dusk and lights flicker warmly. With a lack of narrative, Iblard Jikan shows us these visions and more alongside a soundtrack of lilting melodies.

Both of these are shorts made by Studio Ghibli, which just about guarentees beautiful art that will be easy on the eyes, and that's exactly what On Your Mark and Iblard Jikan are made for. If you're in the mood for a quick break and want to relax, I highly recommend both of these series.

Both of these anime shorts were created by Studio Ghibli, so you know they'll be beautiful and have similar art styles. The music is wonderful, and calm. Both of these animes have little action, and are perfect if you're just looking for something calm and pretty to watch, and take a break for all those action animes.

Many animated music videos seem like they were produced as a cheap alternative to filming a video.  Yet when a music video is done well with good music it can be a powerful five minute experience. These 2 anime are excellent examples, combining stylistic animation, fast paced stories, and of course good music.

Binchou-tan Movie

Binchou-tan Movie
  • OVA (1 ep x 4 min)
  • 2005

In a remote countryside village lives the tiny Binchou-tan. On a typical day like many others, Binchou-tan checks to see if she has enough water in her small house’s bucket. She then sets forth to reach the village’s central well to refill her supply, encountering flowers, beautiful scenery, a creek, and even a pesky rainstorm along the way!

You enjoyed this music-video with a sort of story, the appearance of grace and the green grass and as sound not much more than just the music?

If you enjoyed these aspects, then try Binchou-tan Movie too. It is almost filled like that: storyline, grace (it's truly cute), much green grass and solely music as sound.

CLAMP in Wonderland 2

CLAMP in Wonderland 2
  • Music Video (1 ep x 6 min)

Both these are beautiful music videos, created by well-known companies (CLAMP, Ghibli). The art, music, and characters are very well done. Plus, they are both very short, so a fan of one should check out the other!
