“Gisoku no Moses”, a delightful anime short inspired by Gene Kelly

Screen Shot 2014-08-25 at 9.22.14 PMLeave it to Japan to combine a catchy Gene Kelly tap-dance number from “Singing in the Rain” with a cute anime ghost girl, to create one of the sweetest, cutest anime shorts I’ve seen to date. A lot of the world seems to agree, since the YouTube video is now over 300,000 views, and the comments section is filled with all kinds of languages from fans.

Screen Shot 2014-08-25 at 9.27.01 PMThe anime short starts off with a lonely, sad ghost girl, who happens to hear two haunted tap shoes singing and dancing to “Moses Supposes” from “Singing in the Rain.”

She’s hesitant at first, but soon she starts trying to dance with them, and as the song goes on she breaks into a tap-dance routine just like Gene Kelly’s. It’s kind of bittersweet, as the shoes lose their movement, but in the closing we see a shopkeeper (Named Mose!) watching the ghost girl looking at a sign in his window for “Singing in the Rain”, and the last scene shows them in a theater where she’s enjoying “Singing in the Rain” with the shopkeeper!

(Update: I didn’t know this before but the other singer and dancer you hear is Donald O’Conner!)

    This popped up on iFunny with a different song playing, so I looked for the original. Was not disappointed. Can’t go wrong with Gene Kelly, and the Wholesome levels are off the charts with this video. I’ll probably watch this another million times throughout my life, its just that adorable and wholesome.

      I also found this on iFunny and hearing about this touched my heart to see the creativity someone has. Turning the most life altering depressing moment in their eyes to a sweet heart warming animation, not asking for an acceptance from the world but a gift that won’t be received nor seen for the one that mattered most. That, that’s what makes this short the most amazing video, and for the creator who may not hear this no awards, no amounts of gifts would portray the level of sympathy and love I have to your talent, your video and your loved one “Like the sun’s tear shattered on stone- Pavel Friedmann”

      I agree, this is the kind of video to watch when you’re feeling a little down. I’m glad Youtube hasn’t deleted it yet, they’re not that heartless yet!

    This even tint was indeed broken up by streaks of yellow sand break in the lower lands,
    and by many tall trees of the pine family, out topping
    the others some singly, some in clumps; but the general
    colouring was uniform and sad. The hills ran up clear above the vegetation in spires of naked
    rock. All were strangely shaped, and the Spy glass, which was by three or four hundred feet the tallest on the island, was likewise the strangest in configuration, running up
    sheer from almost every side and then suddenly cut off
    at the top like a pedestal to put a statue on..

    Lace Wigs At about the 6th level the players defeated the Demonic Lich Mage and it dropped several (custom) items, including a robe.
    Of course, Veridian was the only one able to wear robes
    so he put it on. The robe was hopelessly unbalanced and
    Veridian was able to tank in the front row with the
    fighters and really embrace the role of the combat

    hair extensions Sylvester asked her if she had another large black
    friend who could sing, after which she introduced him to Izora Rhodes.
    The songs included on the album were influenced by dance
    music, and included Sylvester’s own compositions, such as “Never Too Late,” as well as covers of hits like Ashford Simpson’s “Over and Over.” Many reviewers noted that Sylvester’s image had been altered since his early career,
    moving him away from the glittery androgynous appearance to that of a more
    conventional rhythm and blues singer which would have wider commercial appeal.

    For this release, he was particularly influenced by the genre of dance music known as
    disco which was then becoming increasingly popular across the Western world..

    I Tip extensions Pavlovsk Palace was built by Catherine the Great’s son Paul.
    The czarevitch and his wife, Marie Feodorovna, were ardent francophiles, who,
    on a visit to France and Versailles in May and June 1782,

    tape in extensions Brown, the Flames, and his entire band debuted
    at the Apollo Theater on April 24, 1959, opening for Brown’s idol, Little Willie John.[27][40]
    Federal Records issued two albums credited to Brown and the
    Famous Flames (both contained previously released singles).
    By 1960, Brown began multi tasking in the recording studio involving himself, his singing group,
    the Famous Flames, and his band, a separate entity from The Flames, sometimes named the James Brown Orchestra or the James Brown Band.

    That year the band released the top ten R hit “(Do the) Mashed Potatoes” on Dade Records, owned by Henry
    Stone, billed under the pseudonym “Nat Kendrick the Swans” due to label issues.[41] As
    a result of its success, King president Syd Nathan shifted Brown’s contract from Federal to the parent label, King, which according to Brown in his autobiography meant “you got more support from the company”.

    wigs for women I wrote this article because I feel that special
    needs children are under estimated. They can learn and achieve anything that anybody else can!
    They grow, they move on in life, and they are even capable of holding a job,
    going to college, and having families. We are now seeing them
    in Hollywood which proves that special needs children are just as smart
    as anyone else!. wigs for women

    hair extensions After Britain declared war on Germany in September 1939, Hepburn’s mother relocated her daughter back
    to Arnhem in the hope that, as during the First World War,
    the Netherlands would remain neutral and be spared a German attack.
    While there, Hepburn attended the Arnhem Conservatory from 1939 to 1945.
    She had begun taking ballet lessons during her last years
    at boarding school, and continued training in Arnhem under the tutelage of
    Winja Marova, becoming her “star pupil”.[9] After the Germans invaded
    the Netherlands in 1940, Hepburn used the name Edda van Heemstra, because an “English sounding” name was considered dangerous during the German occupation. hair
