Kumo to churippu (1943)

Kenzo Masaoka's The Spider and the Tulip (Kumo to churippu, 1943) is a legendary title which would influence Isao Takahato's works in the future.
This short film reminds one of the style of a "Silly Symphony" and it isn't very original: it doesn't seem Japanese, it's too "American". However, it deserves attention because the animation is particularly brilliant in technique.
