Acting too quickly. Doing something that fills us with regret. We’ve all been there. And there’s always that wish that time could be turned back just this once.
This anime shows how the pain of regret can be worse than physical pain.
It’s as if the pain of regret is 100x worse than the physical or emotional pain we may have caused others.
We become an embarrassment to ourselves, and can’t stand to have done something wrong, even after the other person has long forgotten.
In life everyone makes mistakes. Some realize it soon. Some reflect on it later. And some never come to see it.
In all cases we should be kind. For what if we were in the other position.
Remember the sting of regret? Who is immune to it?
The anime is the senior project of a a student from one of Japan’s top art universities.
The the title here is A Reflection of One’s Mind, a better translation might be Feelings on a Cloud.
I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of this aspiring anime artist.
