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 are short & slow-paced movies based on Kenji Miyazawa's stories that involve some VERY weird supernatural things going on. The only aspects I personally enjoyed about these shorts are their atmosphere & artistic animation; however, if you liked the one, you should also check the other.
