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.

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.

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.

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
