A Heartwarming Tale of a Lonely Robot

Many know Nobuo Uematsu as the main composer behind the Final Fantasy series, but Blik-0 1946 is a chance to experience another side of his creativity.

The story is simple but bittersweet. It has the charm of a children's book, but can be appreciated by readers of any age. The accompanying music has that distinguishable Uematsu appeal, and Ogawa's illustrations do a wonderful job painting the lonesome world of this little robot.

The story is short, so don't expect a novel. But I personally found myself revisiting Blik-0 shortly after I finished it. If you like short stories and enjoy Uematsu's compositions, I highly recommend this small gem.
