    Cell, dimensional, and CG animators participated in production of this animated film. It was all done manually, without motion capture, in an epochal attempt to use digital technologies to merge different animation methods. To express the “change in time and space” (one of the production purposes), a ToonShader was used for 2D processing.

    The story is unpersuasive: Tokitama-kun leaves the room saying: “See you again in about 300 years.” His parents believe him, but only the room ages 300 years.
