This short film features our female lead, Aki, recalling the times she participated in her school's drumming club from her fascination with playing the taiko drums and the challenges this causes to her family life as she is asked to be an instructor to her old high school's drum club. In spite of its short run, Aki no Kanade has enough time to flesh out Aki's backstory to show the devotion she has for being a drummer and playing out the events of her past that lead her to return to her high school after so long. It is also beautifully animated with natural scenic shots and decent looking character designs, though it does cut some corners on animation at points. This baby is too short to be rewatched often, but is still worth a look if you are looking for something different from the norm for an anime title.
