New Tokyo Ondo
I guess some animated shorts are more of an experience rather than being concerned with following a solid narrative, and that is seriously the case with New Tokyo Ondo. The bizarre, yet engrossing animation is an absolutely amazing, hilarious exercise in randomness injected with traditional Japanese folk and western classical music. A man in 3D glasses and a Harajuku themed chick travel around the world, and something about acquiring billion yen coins. It doesn't matter! This is one of the most awesome animations I've seen in a while, and it'll probably make your day that much more incredible. Turn off your brain and enjoy this animated opus.
