There are days when I’m just not in the mood to follow a series. When a quick anime fix is all I need to get me through the day or week. Enter the short film.
“Kakurenbo” by Shuuhei Morita fits this bill. The movie is about a group of children playing hide-and-seek in an abandoned city. They all wear masks.
One of the characters is a boy named Hikora whose sister, Sorincha, disappeared while playing said game. I can’t remember how long she’s been missing though. Hikora thinks by participating in the game, he will find her.
But he will realize this particular hide-and-seek game comes with a sinister twist.
It’s not a bad short film and actually won several awards.
