Hachiko is an animation that narrates an alternate end to the touching story of the loyal dog Hachiko:

"Hachiko the dog was born on a farm in 1923 and was later adopted by a professor of agriculture at the University of Tokyo – Hidesaburo Ueno.
The two fell into a daily routine where Ueno and Hachi would walk together to the Shibuya train station, where Ueno would pet Hachiko goodbye before getting on the train to work.
Hachi would then spend the day waiting for Ueno to come back. In the meantime, local shopkeepers and station workers would keep an eye on him and often give him treats while he held his vigil for Ueno.
This routine continued for several years until one day, tragedy ensued. Ueno never came home from work as he suffered a brain hemorrhage and died. Of course, Hachi had no idea that this, so the loyal dog continued to wait for his owner’s return. Every day like clockwork, when the train would appear, so would Hachi – searching for Ueno.
Hachi never gave up home and continued to wait for over 9 years, when Hachiko was found on the morning of March 8, 1935 – deceased due to natural causes. His body was taken to the train station’s baggage room – a place that had been one of his favorite hangouts. "- from caeserway.com

This animation shows an alternate ending to this story where Hachiko's beloved owner finally returns back. This work was created as part of Fabin's AI Brushes project (https://www.nurecas.com/ai-brushes) using the algorithm GauGAN by means of segment-animation.
