I Wanna Be Your Friend by Iku Ogawa

New friends can be hard to find… but to what extent would you go to win over the hearts of strangers? Iku Ogawa follows a goofy character around scenarios in which we learn about some pitfalls of assimilation. Extremely cute, but with a dark undertone, this short by Ogawa is bittersweet. Produced during his first year at the Tokyo University of the Arts, and awarded the Student Film Competition Audience Award at the 2015 Bucheon International Animation Film festival. Make sure to watch through the credits for some devilishly clever concept art.
