As Superflat First Love is a Louis Vuitton commercial and Summer Wars is an epic movie, I can see why this might look like a strange recommendation. Both both have INCREDIBLY similar animation that will fill you with wonder and delight, and similar quirky, bizarre music. If you liked one, do try out the other.
First Love reminds me of Summer Wars mostly because of the animation, but they have a similar feel as well. If you're a fan of Summer Wars and have a few minutes to spare, I recommend giving Superflat First Love a shot! And if you're a fan of the animation from First Love, then definatly check out Summer Wars, it's a great movie with sweet art.
Travel across time and space with the Mokonas. From Yuuko's shop they embark on a trip across dimensions and meet many new people and old friends. They fly through the air with Syo, Kero, Spinel, Chun, and others; dance with persocoms; ride dragons; cause mayhem in a drug store; and even have to run and fight for their lives! Can the Mokonas stay out of too much trouble as they continue their adventure across space?
Both of these are adorable music videos that guide you through a crazy and beautiful world with cute characters and minimal plot. The music is also similar; very happy and upbeat. If you really enjoy one, definitely check out the other.
The language of music can conjure many images. While one woman soars through the sky with wings made of silvery doves and a lone female awaits her lover in a hotel lobby, a goldfish dreams of becoming a human. But whether giant robots are fighting proxy battles or a birdman’s arrow morphs into an ice skater, the music continues to communicate in its own unique way.
Nonoko is a little girl who is about to go to sleep, until she spots a spirit, who has longed for Nonoko to notice him, in the shadows beyond her open door. Nonoko follows this spirit into a beautiful dreamy world filled with many colors. Flying through the air she encounters many different things from birds, to flowers, to a couple of odd looking fish, in a world that she must somehow revive all by herself.
Okay, so you enjoyed Superflat First Love; and probably also the Superflat Monogram short I found rather superior to this.
In that vein, Tobira o Akete is another short about a strange and evocative trip into a fantasy world, and one I personally enjoyed a fair deal. Might be worth trying.
