Short and Sweet filled many small surprises!

This mini series is about a man who imagines himself in the 140 character stories he reads on twitter. Every episode has the main character imagine one such story and parallelly, we get to know more about his life as well. Both his life and the stories he contrives are filled with interesting small surprises. This is smartly written making the short duration of episodes to its advantage. The production, acting and music suits the style and theme of the series.
If you have 10 minutes to spare, watch this and you'd truly be marveled at the power of imagination.

"Your imagination can run free."

'140 Ji no Koi' is a miniseries presenting a simple story that unfolds by embedding charming concepts within the main plot. In each episode, we are absorbed into a scene derived from the imagination of Shuhei Tsubuya. His imagination runs free as he interprets Twitter novels composed of 140 characters, offering endless possibilities. He begins to conjure up such engaging stories, each with its unique charm.

The interesting concepts have the potential to be explored in much more depth, which was what I'd initially hoped for, but since this series is short, I thought that the simplistic approach taken was very fitting after all. The scenes were flowing naturally, while the cinematography and tone complement the different emotions presented throughout, and the acting felt pleasant to watch as it amplified the character's charisma. Overall, it's a charming short watch that explores many intriguing concepts in the stories told, leaving me longing for more.
