Studio : Unknown

The oceans are made of glass and time remains still. Flying fish remain in the air, and if you build a fire, water life-forms appear, dance, and create music.

During the episode, a large whale slowly peaks out of the great ocean, spending a day in the air only to go back in again.

Very difficult to give this a score. I did not enjoy the abstract art and lack of details in the animation, the unattractive characters, the weak plot. However, it provided pretty vivid colours and interesting sound.

The main thing that Glassy Ocean gives is: Imagination. It'll surface as weird to most, but think harder (or don't think at all...) and you'll know that this isn't your average movie. Its creation was not made to amaze, to take you at the edge of your seat, it was more made for you to explore, expand.

Had no idea where this movie was going to go, what was going to happen, which direction it would take. It had no single path and events took place anywhere. If I could put it into an metaphor... I can't even do that ^^

Knowing that pretty much everything was hand-drawn - except the ocean - made me appreciate this production more than my initial watching. The characters are uninteresting, and the events that take place aren't action-packed, but like I said before, it's like a dream, full of abstract imagination.
