Award Reason

This work has already received a number of awards here and abroad. Upon being put on the market, some modifications were made to its details, and the renewed version was submitted to this festival. While the CG images are not of highest quality (it is the author's intention to keep its quality at this level), it gives us great satisfaction to see the author's unique spirit of humor easily beat the Hollywood works created at a cost of billions of dollars! When it comes to motion pictures, what matters most is not money but brilliance of artistic sense.
