The rooftops of a darkened city, a couple walking by a lone streetlight on an otherwise darkened street, an old man rocking in a creaky chair in the corner of a room lit only by the moon or the streetlight entering through the window.

I first went into this expecting it to be the typical shounen anime, with an OP MC focusing more on tropes such as friendship instead of actual character development. I was disappointed to find that I was right. Despite the unusual art style, DO NOT BE FOOLED. Art is a good thing, but not all is as innocent as fans would have others believe. The movie focuses on the image of a moth, which according to my extensive research symbolizes unsettling things such as Shadows and Otherworldliness. Our overpowered main character (who we will refer to as "The Old Man") is slowly corrupted by the read more

Another Shiroki Saori oil painting on glass short, this one being the shortest available on MAL and perhaps the simplest. It's more of a vignette than a story—an interesting, even somewhat ordinary scene, portrayed with nightmarish aesthetics and atmosphere. This is like a ghastly horror film in sound and image, but nothing horrible happens. I suppose Saori just has a knack for darker moods. The technique is, again, beautiful, and the scene is strongly executed. The moth flying around, its shadow cast, reflected in the eyes, and the harsh light is all wonderful. The stark chiaroscuro of the scene and the minimal lighting render this read more

When I went to watch this, what I got definitely wasn't what I was expecting. I'm surprised at how alright this is, I having expected something a lot... weirder.

It is definitely eerie, even maybe a a bit unsettling, but not in a scary sort of way; the scariest part about this being the style it was drawn in, but even that seems to just add to the short film's overall feeling.

All in all, I think this is a nice thing to watch once when you have a few minutes to kill, and don't mind storytelling that's voiceless. Though, don't expect the story to be clear read more

It's very tricky to review movies such as this.
They're all so very abstract and open to interpretation... oh, and short.

For what it is, I find it brilliant. The story is meh, but who needs a story when you have such an ernest setting; the characters are meh, but you learn everything you need to know about them.

The art is brilliant and the score isn't far behind. The story, if you can call it that, is lovely.

It's a movie meant to transmite a feeling and I have an idea what that feeling is and you, after watching it, will probably arrive at a different conclusion, read more
