There She Is!! Is Here To Brighten Your Day!!
by Pup Matthias
Hey. How are you doing? Is today treating you well? I hope so. Today I want to share something with you guys. Nothing big. Nothing crazy. Just a silly sweet thing I found and want to share if you haven’t heard of it already.
I’ve been really into the animated storyteller side of YouTube lately. You know your TheOdd1sOut, Jaiden Animations, Let Me Explain Studios, SomethingelseYT, I’m obsessed with these guys. The latest one I’ve found is Emirichu. Heard of her? I wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t. You wouldn’t believe how many of these animated storytellers there are. But I came across one of her videoes in my recommended feed: How I Met My Favorite Animator! (and cried… a lot) Through this video, she shares an old 2004 animated web series from Korea called There She Is!! And if you need a pick me up then you need to watch There She Is!!
There She Is!! was first uploaded to Newgrounds in 2004. The show is five short episodes or steps about a young bunny girl, Doki, falling in love with a cat boy, Nabi, in a society that does not approve of their “taboo” love between the species. This flash animation was created by a three-person crew SamBakZa from 2004-2008. Anyone familiar with Newgrounds won’t be surprised by this show since it’s one of the most popular on the site.
What makes this show worth watching is how they tell their story with no dialogue. Each episode uses a different song to express the mood of the step. Whether it’s joyful, silly, or serious. They let their animation speak for itself and you will feel all the emotions. When I saw it I thought it would be cute, but by the end, I was teary eye. I have a thing about love stories fighting to be themselves in a society that doesn’t understand. I’m a romantic what can I say.
Step 4 is my personal favorite. It’s the most emotional and they make everything look like one continuous shot. It’s amazing. The good news is you don’t need to search for these five steps. The crew combined all the episodes into one twenty five minute movie for you to watch. So if you find you need a pick me up, why not give There She Is!! a shot? It’s only twenty-five minutes. Brew up some tea or hot cocoa. Maybe even treat yourself with a few marshmallows. Sit back and relax with a show I promise will brighten your day.
Till next time Fluffer Nutters. Be awesome. Be amazing. Be you. And have a nice day.
