    tears just run down my face everytime i see this. In all this mess of a world can something this beautiful exist and its almost as soothing as believing that someone or something is really looking out for us!

    me too. i was 8 and saw presence. It really made me truly sad and haunted. I didn’t know what it was un till i got so aggravated at the guys at tbs telling me its probably one of the kiddi animes they show on adult swim. Every one i asked about the plot to that short, thought i was crazy. so finely, i went through every single anime that was on sifi back then on Wikipedia. This to got me in to art and literature.

    This clip is what single-handedly got me interested in art and anime. I was 9 when I first saw it when SciFi still aired Saturday Anime. All I could think when I saw it was “It’s so beautiful…” Especially the musical score at 6:09.

    one of my fav shorts from the anthology. actually i used to loathe watching cloud when i was young but i guess over time i learned to appreciate the strong visuals combined with the musical score. i only wish you included the very beginning as well

    I love looking up at the clouds. I get lost in the beauty of them and it makes me forget my troubles. It’s like god drawing pictures in the sky. So when I saw this short for the first time I was astounded. It is brilliant and the music is incredibly beautiful.

  10. I wish I could put …
    I wish I could put it into physical words that can be typed, even spoken; Either way…this beautiful, underrated, materpiece of an animated experience…taps into something I can’t explain. It’s something in the music, the pacing…especially the music…the specific notes used, the timing, the tones…the vague, dreamy theme…the sky and the clouds…I’m rambling now…either way, this makes me cry almost every time. And I wish I knew why. There’s something to be said in that. It’s beautiful.

  11. This is my favorite …
    This is my favorite short, and possibly favorite bit of film ever. It inspires powerful emotions and has brought tears on several occasions. Summonedknight has the timing exactly right when the powerful music and scene occur. This is just a flat out amazing piece of art.

    I agree, as a matter of fact this is the first song that I learned to play on the piano. absolutely beautiful.
