It is the short work of monochrome made for a while at ancient times.
The stage is a country town in Japan. A wonderful man called a cap opener man gets down from a mountain.
Please allow, although it is somewhat vulgar.

Very Cool.

Really original and bizarre! God bless you sir for doing something unusual to break the mold.

The concept and story is very strange. I sometimes wonderwhat the animator's purpose of surreal shorts like these is - whether there's a fundamental point behind it, or whether it's just there to make people think for the sake of thinking (which is fine - after all, there doesn't have to be a deeper meaning really!).

I really liked the music that accompanied this. The sound and timing really suited the animation and it's clear you put some time into this. Minor nitpick, I would've scrapped the car sounds going by - the man and the girl are the focus of this flash and they should really be the only sounds. Either that, or make it a more immersive world, just so the cars aren't the only distraction.

There's also a bit of inconsistency with the animation style. The first few scenes look brilliantly done as the old man walks into town. The shading was great and rough, yet detailed. The scenes where the girl screams and the old man "empties" her though were a little more crudely animated. I thought you might have been blotting out the background to bring focus on what was happening, but it looked very white! Some background, or maybe more detail up close of the characters would bring it together.

To sum up, it was neatly done, but a little inconsistent - the first half being much scratchier, dark and bold, whereas the end being a little more grey and dull.
This animation style itself is brilliant and fresh, and it'd be great to see a longer animation next time with a more intricate plot! Will keep my eyes peeled for further appearances.

Not exactly a cap as much as a plug

Although surreal and well animated the little man does not exactly strike me as wonderful as much as it strike me as really really fucked up. I don't exactly find essentially killing a highschool aged girl and using her as a robe very wonderful...

It seems that there are many people who feel that unpleasant. I am regretful.

rather...strange but good.

I don't know what gave you the idea it was...strange, but the style itself was great.
The art work was good, and the way you drew some moments like when he got his stick back in his hand were excellent.
I wish I didn't say this but keep them coming.
