Playground, animated short by Ryosuke Oshiro
Playground is a wordless animated short by Ryosuke Oshiro from the Tokyo Unniversity of the Arts, about a loner schoolboy who finds release from his drab life in school in his fertile imagination. He encounters another, and they have something of a battle of the imaginations.

Animated with a soft touch, it puts emphasis on the moody atmosphere created by the backgrounds (as does much Japanese animation).
