Award Reason

Albeit a production for a university project, I was astonished by the quality of the finished form of this work. The work did not use groundbreaking technology, but used ingenuity in doing what it could with the tools at hand, and the ways to enjoy the animation were impressive. Japanese animation, which has created the term "Japanimation", combines together such specialties. In addition, the synchronization of the personality of the "drawer" who draws manga daily and the interesting aspects of the music is excellent.
