I think pretty much everyone who watched Fumiko no Kokuhaku
liked it, but let's see if the same holds true for a very different sort of indie anime. Spotted by AICN Anime
's Scott Green at SWFBlog (I don't know how I missed it myself!), the short revolves around a mouse stealing cheese...at least until it meets the most beautiful cheese in the world. It's called "Koi Suru Nezumi" (Love Mouse).
The anime is oddly enough voiced in English, by what sounds like a computer-generated voice. It's not quite the same level of charming as Fumiko, and certainly a lot less slapstick-- but it can be pretty amusing in that sort of "really awkward moments on The Office" kind of way.
