Synopsis

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

When Macklemore invented gay rights back in 2012 with his release of Same Love, it was very clear that he was fresh off of viewing the arthouse masterpiece Yoru no Hi. While we can all agree that Same Love is one of the best singles of 2012, second only to PSY's Gangnam Style, can the same be said of this video? Does Yoru no Hi stand the test of time now that Macklemore has defeated heterosexuality? With these questions in mind I plunged into this short film to find out.

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

English dubbed
Genre:art film
Special Note: The only reason this film is marked as english audio or dubbed in this case is because of background chatter of a couple seconds of radio. Aside from that there was no spoken words or subtitles.

Story/art
Unclear. Going from the art you see no color aside from black and white. Which one might dismiss to be an old film but they would be wrong. Instead the black and white concept was used in effort to produce a gloomy outlook. As for the art style it was mostly uncut drawings back to back. I say uncut because you can in a read more
