This is so cool. Ever since MGS digital graphic novel, animated shorts like these seems to be an alternative to big budget animations and this short proves that you can achieve quite a huge amount and variety of content even in this limited medium. I've always been thinking about my KAMI project wether to push for a full3D short or this sort of short limited 2D animations.
A Kiss From Tokyo is very well executed from a film's point of view and it manage to pull of old skool film elements such as composited life smoke and explosions, the cuts and fades are classical and i especially adore the multi planing effect on the background of that "Alfred Hitchcock" car ride thing.. Awesome.
