Fumiko's Confession

"Fumiko's Confession" is this year's YouTube Video Awards Japan's winner in the anime catagory. Mostly the work of Hiroyasu Ishida, a 21-year-old student aspiring to be an animator, with the help of a couple friends. You can read the rest at ANN.

I should have put "Fumiko's Confession" in my Stuff Good for 2009. I like.
