As the seasons pass, a lone stray cat reminisces of life with his master. He talks of the small passions of their time together, and how their shared affection gives them each a reason to be alive. Speaking both of love gained and love lost, he chronicles the eternal nature of their bond, as despite their own respective heartaches they still have each other. The two converse in a touching tale of the true strength of friendship in the face of hardship.
A young woman lives alone in a quiet apartment in Japan; her sole companion is her tiny orange hamster, who she carries with her and loves dearly. Through heartaches, first encounters, cooking sessions and beautiful scenery, the young woman’s relationship with her hamster thrives and remains a touching sentiment.
She and Her Cat and Egao are two short works from the master himself, Makoto Shinkai. Though SaHC has dialogue, Egao is simply a music video; both show us a touching relationship between a human and her pet.
Both vidoes are really short and touching. They show the possitive sites of the world and make you feel like after katharsis in ancient greek theatre.
Another fine piece of Makoto Shinkai's art, I'm pretty confident you will like this short movie if you were even remotely touched by any of his other works.
Just so that we can remember that you don't need a big budget to make a big hit!
Simple pleasures in life are both told in a wonderful way in both of these extremely short shorts. Touching stories about the love between a person and their pet and how this influences their life in a small, and yet meaningful way.
If you enjoy one, you're sure to appreciate the other.
The love and caring between a pet and its owner is the main theme in both Egao and She and her cat. Both short animations are simple, but emotional, and the key element is the feeling. They are very cute and sweet, and perfect for animal-lovers.
Both Egao and She and Her Cat are visually appealing short stories by Makoto Shinkai. They are both emotionally moving, but in a very lighthearted way. If you liked the one, don't hesitate to watch the other, since neither goes over 5 minutes in length.
Makoto Shinkai, producer of She and her cat, is also the producer of Egao. For starters, Egao and She and her cat are short OVAs that are enjoyable and cute. Eventhough, She and her cat has a bit of a dark side to it's self, but still, both are quite awe-inspiring. Both focus on an animal protagonst and that is the greatest similarity betweeen the two.
Egao and She and Her Cat are similar in the way that both tell a short memoir of two friends, one being a girl and the other her pet. They tell of how their friendship thrived and the hardships that were overcome by them.
Created by the same person and following the same theme of a woman and her lovable pet.Id say She and Her Cat was far better and gave more than the single frame of background story depth that Egao did but...In total they together don't even pass the 8 minute mark you you might as well burn through both.
Both are short works done by Makoto Shinkai that features the relationship between a girl and her pet.
Although today Tono Takaki and Shinohara Akari live far apart due to a family move shortly after elementary school, they were once two shy young students brought together by their shared differences from their peers. It is because of this that the two built a bond of closeness between them that still survives through their continued correspondence, even over such a distance. Secretly they both fear the loss of this bond over time, and for this reason they arrange a meeting between just the two of them. The journeys both of them take in their minds and in their lives create an atmosphere of intense emotional upheaval, but also a sense of peace. It is a twist of fate and a series of decisions that put the two in place to carry what they choose of their pasts into the future they will create for themselves.
Sometimes I think that She and Her Cat is somehow connected with the story from 5 CM. Maybe the main character is the protagonist from 5 CM's first love, who is in search of a new love; or maybe she is his schoolmate. Both are short anime movies that were created by Shinkai Makoto, and even if the anime aren't related, each is another vision of love.
All of Makoto Shinkai's works (5 Centimeters per Second, Beyond the Clouds, The Promised Place, Voices of a Distant Star, She and Her Cat) present a visually stunning contemplation of loneliness and the pursuit of an unattainable goal. His characters find themselves psychologically isolated, often while living in an environment full of people. While this is not an uncommon character trait in anime, Makoto Shinkai's creates this mentality in a very realistic way.
Though "5 cm per second" and "She and Her cat" are not that similar at all, they're both created by the same director and that's why they have very similar, melancholic mood.
While the difference in length between 5 Centimeters per Second and She and Her Cat is huge (1h against 5min), both movies provoke the same kind of melancholic sadness. If you want something like 5cm, but lighter, or liked what you saw at She and Her Cat and want to experience more like it, check this title out.
Though their plots are different, both She and her Cat and 5 Centimetres per Second have a similar feel to them. Both are visually beautiful and share a similar sense of quiet beauty and melancholy to them. If you liked one, it's worth trying the other.
Do you want to fly through the sky? For many, life can be scary and overwhelming place, until you find your other half. One man and one woman have found each other at last, and ponder their thoughts and dreams amidst a montage of memories and serene moments. Though the world continues to move on, the duo have the only thing that matters: each other.
Both She and Her Cat and Other Worlds are short and quiet looks at the lives of a young person. While neither has much in the way of story or animation, both are calming and pleasant to watch. If you enjoyed the innocence of one, try the other.
Although both are some of the earlier works of Makoto Shinkai, that is hardly the primary reason for recommending Other Worlds to those who liked She and Her Cat and vice versa. Both are short and calming animations, with solid and simple, though soothing, black and white video. The most prominent audio is the soft background music, with most (or all) of the dialogue being simply text on the screen. Both are also stories of young and sweet loss, and the fear of losing that precious thing. Both are simple and short, and are definitely worth trying out.
She and Her Cat and Other Worlds are just complementary. They have the same melancholy feeling, the same soft background music, the same style, the same format, and even the 'protagonist' seems to be the same. ;)
I definitely think that if you've enjoyed one, you'll like the other.
She and Her Cat and Other Worlds are both excellent monochrome short pieces by Makoto Shinkai. I prefer She and Her Cat though, because it's more complex and easier to understand. Enjoy!
these early shorts from Makoto Shinkai manage to show, within a few minutes using minimalistic monochrome, but never the less beautiful animation style, the sad innocence of a broken heart.
Legend tells of a lone swordsman who lives in the Demon's Castle, the ruins near the Black Forest. This mysterious stranger only accepts rare books for his services, books from the ancient past. Comedy tells the story of a young girl who desperately wishes for her family and village to be saved from the coming English soldiers' wrath, and is willing to trade a precious book in exchange for the deed. With only her legs beneath her, she runs towards the Black Forest, hoping to get there in time...
Though extremely different at first sight, these stories have the same feelings beyond the pictures. They are two monologues: a monologue of a cat and a monologue of a little girl, which describe to us their sense of life and their hopes. Somehow you would find equal atmospheres in Cat's love story and Comedy's childhood story.
I don't know why but if you watched them you have afterward the same feeling. The feeling of depression and satisfaction at the same time, and that feels kinda good. The only thing that really is the same is the peacefully silence. She and her cat goes about someone and her cat. And in Comedy someone will be an assassin if you pay him with a book. Very different as you see but it gives you mental peace so if you feel angry you still can watch the other one.
Both She & Her Cat and Comedy have very interesting art styles and relaxing soundtracks. They both make a nice break from more mainstream, long animes even though they are very different in subject matter.
Both stories are quite heart-touching in their own way. A very deep story lies behind both of them; the animation and art are pretty simple on both but it gives it a nice touch in my opinion.
A lady lives a quiet life with her two loves: alcohol, and her many cats. She’s had many of the latter over the years including an oft-grumpy Scottish Fold mix and Poko, an orange ball of energy who was abandoned as a kitten and saved to live another day. Whether the kitties are playing with cotton gloves, getting to know each other or causing mischief, they and the lady live happily together.
She and Her Cat and Kuruneko are lovely stories of a pet owner with her pet, though SaHC is quite a bit more melancholy while Kuruneko is lighthearted and comedic at times.
Both anime feel like they were made for each other. Similar animation, sweet, and serious at times. the only differece is that kuruneko is more about the human's life and her cats where she and her cat takes it the other way around telling the story from the cats point of view. check one out if you liked the other.
Though She and Her Cat has a much less comedic tone than Kuruneko, both anime are about the relationship between a woman and her pet cats. If you enjoy short anime about that and enjoyed one, then you may want to check out the other.
