The languid, pulsing beauty of Hideki Inaba's retro-style animation is the perfect way to becalm your Tuesday morning. An organic landscape set to the music of BEATSOFREEN's "Slowly Rising," it flows and grows into a glorious profusion of color and movement.

A seed was born beneath the sun, the source of all existence.
The seed absorbed the light. It created more seeds like itself, gradually increasing in number.
Time passed, but still their numbers slowly continued to rise,
and before long they were quietly swallowed up by their own shadows.
After everything that had lived had perished, nothing but an empty world remained.
There, once again, an environment where the next living things could grow silently began to spread.
