By way of an intermission, I thought I'd offer up the first two episodes of a new anime - each is only a little over two minutes long, so they're really more extended bumpers of a sort.

Behold the cuteness. ^_^

Shibawanko no Wa no Kokoro ("Shibawanko's Spirit of Tradition"): "It is based on a picture book. The main character, which is a dog, teaches Japanese tradition and manners."


The torrents can be found here, and I've made the files available in two forms:

- high quality as received, 1280x720 H.264/MP3 AVI, suitable for fast systems, and
- lower quality downsampled to 640x352 H.264/AAC MPEG-4, suitable for most others.
