Harmony (ハーモニー) is a 2015 anime movie from Japanese director Takashi Nakamura & Michael Arias under Project Itoh with Studio 4°C. Project Itoh is based on the writings of Japanese science fiction writer Satoshi Ito. Satoshi Itō died at the young age of 34 in 2009 from cancer. He is very much alive in his works of fiction which are being adapted as anime by different directors and studios. Harmony is one such brainchild of Satoshi Itō.
Animation short film began in the early age of animation, in fact it can be said that it’s where the birth of animation happened. Since our childhood we love animated objects on screens and they become our friends as we grow up. Animated characters become out heroes or villains, someone we look up to or someone we don’t want to be. We would argue with anyone who says otherwise.
As busy adults we break away from our childhood love, we start thinking I am a grown up now and watching these movies is childish. Nothing is sadder than that. Our daily jobs, personal chores keep us so busy we keep putting off the movies and books for later on. Yet, there are times when we need a hearty laugh or something to ponder on. So, here’s my top favorite short animation movies for those who are too busy for a full movie.
First of all, did you know that Dory is actually a member of Royal Tang fish family? I certainly didn’t know until I set myself up to do this review. Coming to the big question, “Did you see Finding Dory?” “NO?” “What are you waiting for? Divine intervention?” haha Just kidding.
