One day, a young woman depressed about her job watched an anime movie recommended by her friend called “A Whisker Away.” She wanted to be strong like the main character Muge, and found herself going to the setting of the anime in Aichi Prefecture to a city called Tokoname. She felt a familiarity in the world of the “naki neko” and was somehow soothed by the city. It became a journey of self-discovery. Tokoname became the city that was the catalyst to draw out a stronger self, much like Muge.

/ 0:04:02 /Japan/PR / 2021
A job order to renew a tourism PR video of Wakasa Bay that was made some time ago came to a production company. An unsure director, a care free AD, a typical Producer, an easily frazzled Editor, and a worthless Intern. Not one of them has ever been to the Wakasa Bay region of Fukui Prefecture. There is no budget. In these conditions, can they really make a tourism PR video?
