If you need a good happy-cry, take a few minutes to watch Playground, the sweetly animated short film by Ryosuke Oshiro. A boy who has always considered himself a "lone wolf" gets into a competition of imagination with a classmate who, like him, dreams of superpowers, magical forests, and grand cities.

Juri Ito provided the music for Playground and Nozomi Nakatani and Takuma Osugi designed the sound. It's a perfect little timeout, one that will make you want to call your best friend afterward.
