Through persistence, a woman finally wins over the man that she loves. But despite the joy of their life together, the troubles he experiences at work creates a distance between them that does not abate - even as they grow and raise a family together. As the woman weakens with age, all that the man did and did not do comes back to haunt him. Yet what can he do for her that will be meaningful even in the face of the ravages of time?
I don't think any anime has made be cry so suddenly and without warning... Literally 3 minutes before I'm completely normal and 3 mintures later I'm sobbing. This animation is only 3 minutes long, yet it manages to tell a story better than most anime or movies. Its really it's hard to explain in words the effects of this anime, its only 3 minutes so just watch it and see for yourself.
Furiko is a magnificent love story, and manages to humanize the characters brilliantly, give a lot of information about their life, and eventually tell the tale of how a mature love can be stronger than all the hardships in the world. The animation is simplistic and very raw, mirroring the minimal feel of going through decades of a couple's life with all their ups and downs. The music is a fantastic and emotional backdrop giving a melancholic yet uplifting tone to it all. It is also the story of a man realizing that he always had what he really wanted, and accepting the truth of the world for all its pain and beauty. There is a beautiful symmetry to how the characters' lives unfold, and a strong saying about the place of people in life. I cannot recommend this enough. In three minutes, if you have even a shred of a heart, it will move you like very few things can. Raw, powerful, moving, and a must watch for everyone and anyone.
