Anime: Rain Town

In this town, since who knows when, rain has never stopped. Residents moved out to suburbs and high ground around “rain town”. People’s memories are now deeply submerged. But in this forgotten rainy town sometimes, someone wanders.

Admit it, there’s something soothing and relaxing about listening to the rain. It calms and comforts and that’s what this 10 minute short is all about. Or at least that’ why I think it’s about. I didn’t get it watching it the first time round, which was why I had to watch it again. It’s a good thing it’s so short.

One thing I can most definitely say is that it’s a sweet story. No words are used in the process of storytelling but the real story is in the details. The red rain coat, the yellow rain coat and through flashbacks and details in the background. I think it’s amazing how much effort was put into the background and they really are lovely to take in. The music and the rain is perfect and like the art style.

Truth be told though, I can’t appreciate shorts fully. I do have a preference for longer works. But that said, it’s only 10 minutes and for those 10 minutes, Rain Town is a beautiful watch.
