Oh man I have a good animated short, but unfortunately it would be neither a good idea nor in good taste to post it here. Just a little too violent, I'd assume.
Really liked Kagemono though. Brent found it for me after I gave him a short description of it since I couldn't find it myself. That was a few months back though. Wolfsong didn't really pull any tears from my face, pacing just felt wrong for it. Something just felt disconnected in it, but I can't put my finger on it. The Tale of the 3 Brothers
is always a good one. My personal favorite has to be "Tales of Alethrion: The First Hero"
I couldn't tell you why it's my favorite, it just is. I think it's the whole feel good story with a fantasy setting. If you like Lindsey Stirling you might like "The Gaurdian"
by NeroGeist. Not as fancy an animation, but a good one nonetheless; kind of a series, but not really. You can find a lot of good ones if you start with a single short then keep going through the recommendations list. I've binged shorts for hours before, with a bowl of popcorn or some other food, makes for a really easy-going day.
