Yuri Quickie: Kanamewo

Kanamewo

Not to be confused with Kanamemo, Kanamewo is a 5 minute silent short about a (I’m guessing) 17-18 year old woman and a 700 year old tree goddess named Kukoamenoduchimikoto. Try saying that five times fast. Since it is being talked about here, take a wild guess what happens…

Thanks to my always reliable cameraman for finding this video.

In my years as an avid watcher of all things animated I have seen Rattrap X Botanica and Tails X Cosmo so a “Normal X Grass/Ghost (or maybe Fairy) Type” union is nothing new.

Yuri and Slice of Life are my anime passion.

    …I knew “tree-hugging”, but this is taking it to a whole new level 😛
    That out of my system: I do enjoy shorts, that manage to tell an emotional story within such short time. And I don’t mind if they are kinda “outta there”, as long they are sensible in their own right. Even if it may take a somewhat open mind to gain a feeling for any meaning or interpretation.
    The tune was somewhat uneasy to listen to, yet artistically I kinda like how it mashes and clashes in the same churning manner the visual story rushes through a cascade of emotional themes. Kinda like a memory…
    Not a bad find. Thanks for sharing / relaying.

    Well that was a first for me…It’s nice but hated the fact that the tree died sort of (?)
    But overall, it’s a nice story 🙂

    So many feels in such a short amount of time, the ending was really sweet too <3.
    i personally wouldn’t mind an extended story/manga/anime version of this.

    Just watched this and it was heartwarming and tearjerking. I hope we get to see more of this even it is unlikely.

    Glad to see it got a short sequel as an ONA, but I still don’t understand why they made the loli boss a tree spirit and why Haruka’s hair isn’t blue anymore.

  13. It was kind of beautiful in a way it was a realistic fantasy of sorts. In the end she had to go back to her roots(no pun intended) She even came back to see her as a tree.
    Btw this reminds me of if skins was a anime.

    It felt unsettling at first, I was really surprised when their relationship went from emotional to physical, but I quickly got over it and as it went on from that point I felt suffocated by sadness, even as the mc smiled with hope at the end.
    I really liked the music, how it represented their bond.
    This really gave me feels, it was a great work.
    I ended up watching it 4 times, thanks for sharing

    I LIKED the music a lot. Weird how it did seem like a mom and daughter but then nope. Well she is actually a 500 year old goddess/tree spirit and while this trope is often made fun of it’s a little strange to see it in action. I kinda want to watch it again but kinda not since it made me anxious.
