    Brilliant Flash/Cg short

    Brilliant Flash/Cg short

    There are four parts to this little story from a Chinese animation studio. Huge influences from Miyazaki (Spirited Away fans will be into this!) but the backgrounds are gorgeous (can't tell if they're digi or traditional) and the environments and vehicles are fantastic.

    Part 4 rules the most ^_~

    Part 1
    Part 2
    Part 3
    Part 4

    I'd give my right arm to be involved in a series like this...

    Those are super-cool! Really great stuff! They take a while to load but they're worth it.

    The link to Part 4 is the same as the link to Part 3.

    I noticed on the webpage (bobototo.net) there was a little music note icon. I haven't looked further into it, but if you can DL songs from the site it might tell you who composed em

    you can listen to samples to the music, or buy them for your cellphone. I don't know how it works exactly; something about sending the song # to 216332; the song number is in the top, center right. I don't know if the 216332 number is domestic only or international.
