Spotted this via 2ch
-- it's an anime, but it was created via stop-motion. And it's freakin' amazing. Watch this-- it's less than four minutes long, and if you don't I'm serious that you're missing out. Touhou
fans in particular should enjoy it, but don't let that stop you non-Touhou-fanatics.
My mind is totally blown. I have to go do something else now. *wobbles off*
(UPDATE: Reader Kiriska helpfully notes that the video part actually already existed, so the 'animation' is actually just printed stills from it-- but I still think it looks cool, so I'll just leave this here.)
