Looks like the man need to find a new wife, I guess he needs courage to be a man. Anyway I guess he will meet some one in his next life. GOOD LUCK

An amazing piece of animation. I think that it's very well done and I especially like the use of scrabble tiles for credits at the end.

かなりブラックで怖いけど、構図がうまいからか、なぜか目が離せませんでした。
