Oh my, what and incredible work of art we have here.

Diary of Tortov Roddle is really something unique, I enjoyed it very much.
It's like watching a moving panting, like running through a museum while beautiful music is being played all over the place.

It really doesn't has a plot, It's just Tortov Roddle traveling and showing us places. But oh, what kind of places.
They are so magical, with a great amount of surrealism, artistic, unique.
It leaves you wanting more. Always wanting to know what other kind of places he will visit. Places just beyond our imagination.

The art is really simple, original,different. That's what makes it ...

Legitimately one of my favorite anime, although really not for everyone.

The Diary of Tortov Roddle is a series of wonderful, beautiful, surreal, wordless (aside from text from Tortov's diary) shorts, starring the traveler Tortov Roddle and his strange long-legged pig mount and companion. There's not really a story to speak of; the series is essentially a series of short vignettes. Tortov goes somewhere, experiences something odd, and then moves on.

What somethings they are, though. The series is surreal, but unlike most uses of surrealism, it's not really symbolic. The surrealism doesn't represent the mind of a character, or the author's opinion ...

Mixed Feelings
Aru Tabibito no Nikki follows Tortov Roddle as he explores an esoteric dreamscape, providing a short and mysterious adventure. The anime showcases remarkable creativity, with unique visuals that immerse viewers in its surreal world. The music accompanying the scenes complements the creativity, enhancing the overall experience. However, some viewers may find its avant-garde approach pretentious, as it delves into abstract themes and imagery. Yet, for those who appreciate its artistic merits, the series offers a captivating exploration of unconventional style and thematic elements. Despite its concise nature, it remains a compelling choice for enthusiasts of experimental animation and introspective storytelling.
