Watch Hiroyasu Ishida's Beautiful Animated Short RAIN TOWN
Once in awhile, a young Japanese animator would emerged onto the indie scene with an impressive short film that cause us to go "Wow, we should keep an eye out on this hot prospect in the future".  Such is the case of Hiroyasu Ishida (aka Tete) when he posted his hilarious short Fumiko's Confession in 2009 which drew in over a million hits on Youtube.  Lo and behold, he's back again for his graduation film at Kyoto Seika University.  Its entitled Rain Town and unlike his previous effort, its slow-paced and its presented more of a moody tone with the use of beautiful backgrounds and soft music. Here's how he poetically describe it:
In this town, since who knows when, rain has never stopped.

Residents moved out to suburbs and high ground around

"rain town."

People's memories are now deeply submerged.

But into this forgotten rainy town

sometimes, someone wanders.
