There She Is! - Step 1 by SamBakZa
Another short animation, but for our valentine special.
I think it was two years ago, a friend of mine introduced me to this video. Being a cat person and an anime fan, he reckons that I would love it. I did. With an up-beat background music and kawaii characters, who wouldn't?
This 5 series animation has won an award in Brazil festival and viewed 11 million times in newsground site. As what I've read from youtube (I can't find the exact post arrgghhness), the message that the animators tries to convey is the relationship between Korean and Japanese. As most of us know, there's a racial difference between the two nations. The authors tried to impart their views that in this modern world, everyone can love anyone regardless of color or race.
The story also applies to love that have cultural discrimination. Like age gap, religion, social standing, distance, and gender. But for those couples who were struck deep with cupid's arrow, these things are nothing to what they truly feel. Those amazing stories that fought unknown wars just for their right to love.
So go, fight! Who knows, right now, you are writing your own love story.
