Here’s a recap at the amazingly fluid animation commercial that started everything. It looks better in HD 8D. I must admit I am VERY surprised at this turn of event ! I kept thinking the ‘Sexy swimming’ short clip was just a promotional video to promote Kyoto Animation –_- ;

I wonder was it originally planned to be an Anime or was Kyoto Animation persuaded to push through due to the overwhelming response. I guess we’ll never know xD
