It's an original animation created by Akira Yoshida. I wanted to make this. The reason to produce works is just like that! :-)
I made it at my own choise and then the file got very large. It's 15 minutes movie and 36MB file size.
This story might be said to be close to the world of the "Tales of Moonlight and Rain" or "The Tales of Ise". It's a Japanese-style love story.
