This is fucking disturbing and extremely uncomfortable to watch.
Computer-rendered imagery composed of distorted faces, confusing scenes of human depravity, incestuous body horror, and a sense of gradual deprivation with no true intention spotted. An ugly fever dream. The entropy of a disturbed mind melting into itself.
Something is just... off. An unnerving feeling of peering in on an immoral act meant for private eyes only. The weird fetish of a troubled person accidentally made public.
That's it, no need to add extra padding to this review. No need to explain any further. If you watch this three minutes of a
"WTF" moment, that's three minutes you can never unsee. You've been warned.
Thoroughly awful Japanese surrealism. This is seriously one of the dumbest short films I've ever seen. It looks awful (the mass of morphed bodies is only disturbing for the first, like, two seconds, then it just becomes stupid), the voice acting is awful and shockingly amateur, and I'm pretty sure that literally everything was done by ONE guy, and this guy sucks. Its story is some weird fetishistic pseudo-incestual...thing...it doesn't make any sense, and I really don't care to try and analyze it, because frankly I don't think there's anything to really analyze here. But yeah, it sucks. I love surrealism, but not like this.
Utsu Musume Sayuri is a 1 episode "show" that is 3 minutes long. It is like a Terry Gilliam short cartoon from Monty Python's Flying Circus...except stupider...and less funny.
This short sketch is about a horribly deformed blob that is supposedly a little girl. She engages in a poorly animated and trippy S&M session with other poorly animated blobs that are supposed to be her parents. That's it. That is all that happens in this 3 minutes of time that you will immediately wish you had spent doing something else.
I know what you are saying. It is only 3 minutes, how much can you suffer
in 3 minutes? Try rubbing ghost pepper hot sauce all over your balls and THEN tell me that 3 minutes isn't a big deal. Oh well...it could be worse. In the 1970s the Americans made "Down and Dirty Duck" which is like Utsu Musume if it lasted for 2 god damn hours!
I don't even know what I just watched. I am not even sure I should be criticizing this "Anime" because I am not even sure it is. It is a three minute short and for all I know it could have been directed by some kid in his bedroom. If you feel up to the challenge watch it on Youtube.
Story 1: I don't even know what it is about. It says in the description it is about some girl celebrating her strike but it has nothing to do with it. Also it says below that the genre is comedy. It is far from a comedy
from what I can tell. I might have a bad sense of humor because I didn't find one thing interesting.
Art 6: Let me explain as terrible as everything is the art has some good factors about it. You aren't going to see any moe or normal style animation. It is more along of the lines of they built a character and let it perform by taking pictures of each frame.
Sound 3: I don't know what to rate this one. It was poor but it had a decent song at the end.
Character 1: I don't even know what to say about the characters. They are so weird. You can't describe them. It is impossible.
Enjoyment 1: I hated it. I just wanted the three minutes to end.
Overall 1: If you think you have spare time and have nothing to watch or do. Then watch this on Youtube. It will be dreadful for most I think. But that is my opinion. You could enjoy it or hate it I am not one to judge.
I don’t want to write much in the way of a fancy introduction for a ‘review’ of Utsu Musume Sayuri, Striking Daughter, the kind of crap you’d find in one of Courage the Cowardly Dog’s nightmares or whatever you want to call this vomit-inducting smegma. I want to keep it straight-forward and easy to understand because honestly what the fuck…. Literally! At first I was asking myself not only what in God’s name was I watching, but what in the world would drive someone to make such absolute dog shit! This is the kind of weird shit that I thought was unimaginable; you couldn’t try
to make this shit up, it’s just too far out there. And as I am here today, after the second and hopefully last time ever laying eyes on Utsu Musume Sayuri, I am still disturbed and traumatized by what I’ve witnessed.
This OVA is 3 minutes long and thank the Lord it doesn’t go any longer. It starts off with a zoom into these lines, similar to the 2nd opening to Kill La Kill, followed by some black mah-jong pieces flipping around the screen and already you can tell this is not going to be pretty. It cuts to this black tentacle that bends around and shit (I honestly thought at first it was just a black dildo) and we find that it’s connected to this fuck-face called Sayuri, with captions “This gotta be Sayuri”. Unfortunately it gotta be, don’t it? There is nothing about the design of this disgusting blob that I assume has some pretty bad genetic defects, from the dodgy eye to the bloody pinwheel on the side of its head.
We are then shown Hiroshi, who has his head INSIDE OF SAYURI’S HEAD, with hand motions as if he were playing a trumpet. If you were to tell me this was hentai, I don’t think I could argue with that. It’s told by some fugly captions that Hiroshi apparently married into Sayuri’s family for reasons that in no way, shape and form can be considered realistic. On Hiroshi’s lap is Sayuri’s Mama, who appears to be a Babushka doll attempting to deepthroat what I assume to be the long-ass genitals of, who would’ve guessed it, Sayuri’s Papa. They all appear to be participating in what I can interpret as a poorly animated orgy. Yeah… this has got to be some kind of sick Asian porn. In the synopsis, it says that Sayuri is the daughter of a good family. Maybe they’re just misunderstood, as this was made in Japan, but I beg to differ.
One minute into this, Papa tells Sayuri that her time has come… to strike. Strike what, exactly? Well, we're told that she is to strike some poor, masochistic, deformed thing, who’s put itself in the position known as ‘doggystyle’, pleading to be struck. Sayuri slithers the finger up its butt crack (no joke) before granting it’s wish and slamming the big black dildo straight down on its puny little ass, over and over again, until it falls unconscious. It says in the credits that the mother had been waiting for this day to come where Sayuri would ‘strike’. Why? Who the fuck cares? Certainly, not the creators of this shit, because they end it then and there. Nothing that was shown in this show makes any fucking sense! And they don’t even try to hide it!
This OVA is a pinnacle of complete garbage in the anime medium. It only goes for 3 minutes, but that’s 3 minutes too fucking long! The story, the characters, the animation, the sound, all of it is awful, even at an amateur level. You will have wish you spent those 3 minutes on extra sleep, because there is nothing redeemable from this show. There are shows out there like Mars of Destruction, Boku no Pico, Pupa, etc. that are known as some of the worst anime to ever be made, and Utsu Musume Sayuri easily joins these others pieces of shit in the depths of anime hell. If I haven’t made myself clear thus far, here it is, in its simplest form: Fuck this show! On MAL currently it has a mean score of 2.10, and that’s still too damn high. It is a 0/10. Overall, it’s a 0. If I used a raw score: It’s a 0. If I had used the 3 minutes I had watching this shit to create some kind of convoluted mathematical formula to come up with the most objective score I could possible give, it would still be a MOTHER FUCKING ZERO!! And if you disagree with me on this, that’s fine, but I dare you to watch it and tell me otherwise.
When you indulge in an audiovisual medium long enough, you will inevitably have at least one of "that moment". You know the one. The moment in which you yell "WHAT THE FUCK DID I JUST WATCH?!" in a state of anger and confusion. There can be a number of reasons as to why this happened, none of which are ever good, at least in regards to what you're watching, not in justifying why you said what you said.
Maybe in the middle of a series, a plot point, story event, or plot twist pops up that really fucks up any logic of
the series and/or it's characters (like episode 28 of SEED Destiny, the Sword of Akasha from Geass R2, any of the very middle (12-17) episodes of Re:Zero, etc.), and maybe you dropped it then and there. Maybe a season, film, or series had a horrendous ending that made you feel like you wasted your time (Aldnoah.Zero finale, Aldnoah.Zero Second Season finale, Death Note finale). Maybe the show you are watching is just so bad that by the end of it (or even by the end of 1 episode, which means you'll probably have more), you're left screaming that exact phrase (Hand Shakers, Mahouka, Blazblue Alter Memory, PSO2, Pupa, and so, so many others). Or maybe, just maybe, you just wasted a couple minutes of your life on something that had physically no merit in the small amount of time it took to be viewed, a fucked up and weird anime of episode, clearly not of the good variety.
Well folks, that's exactly what we got here today. 3 minutes of sheer embarrassment, discomfort, and sheer WTFuckery. It has no actual story or characters to speak of, just monstrosities with embarrassingly awful voices, and crude, ugly CGI, which are what the horrifically designed...creatures are made of. It warrants no further analysis than that. None whatsoever. I mean it; it physically doesn't. It's literally just 3 minutes of some weird, revolting beast being encourage to spank some other fucked up creature in the literal asshole. That's it. It's mortifying, to say the least. It literally has no artistic merit, or any actual merit for that matter. Even Skelter+Heaven had some merit in the fact that the girls were cute, the ED was alright, and it was so pathetically incompetent that you can maybe get a laugh out of it. At least Hand Shakers has so much worth breaking down that anyone who is interested in writing, editing, working a camera, directing, etc., or just someone who is experienced as a man who laughs at bad products (like me) will have a field day with it. At least Mars of Destruction didn't have revolting CGI.
This "anime" worthless in all facets. One can consider it the worst anime of all time in regards to how little merit it has on any aspect in existence, though it isn't so densely packed with problems as to make it beyond broken, in which case one, namely myself, can consider that to be the worst anime of all time, whichever anime that may be. However, this anime has the least right to exist, and is just there to be an obnoxious waste of time, 3 minutes to be exact. Don't seek this anime out, not even just to decrease your scorec, say you've seen more bad anime, or any possible reason you could use to see a bad anime, because I can almost guarantee that you'll walk away feeling like time has literally been robbed from your limited life span. Stay the fuck away from this anime, it is literally the Voldemort of anime. Well, with all that said, I bid you adieu.
When I first began watching Utsu Musume Sayuri I was totally shocked. But now that I’ve watched it several times, I can understand the entertainment factor for the short. Even the first time I watched it, I couldn’t help but laugh at how weird it was.
According to other reviews that I’ve read, there have been a lot of trolls posting reviews about how “great” Utsu Musume Sayuri is. I would like to clarify that this review is serious and I genuinely enjoyed this short film. I do not want my first review to be taken down just because I gave a rating and wrote
a review that contrasts with others’ opinions. I also thought that it would be good to have something posted that's not as repetitive as “wtf” and “This is three minutes of your life you will never have back.”
I found the story lacking in some areas, but honestly, it only makes me want to know more about the lore of the Utsu Musume Sayuri world. I can only dream of prequels and sequels to this film, or being able to read the writer’s intentions and background.
This film clearly has a unique art style. I love the carved and painted wood look that the characters have. (Sayuri’s mom looks like an engraved hot dog lol)
The end credits on the other hand have a different art style that I find pretty cute, and somehow it still seems to fit well with the CG used in the episode. Though I don’t usually care for anything CG, I feel like this short couldn’t have used it better and if it wasn’t in CG, it wouldn’t have the same effect as it does.
I really enjoyed the two short songs used in the short film, if there were longer versions of them I would [respectfully purchase them]. I also enjoy the low hum or ominous vibrating that comes out of my speakers when I play the short because it adds to the mood of the film.
I can appreciate the amount of work that the one voice actor put in to make all of the different characters’ voices, too.
What I dislike is that at times I can hear the audio clip when switching scenes, which seems too amatuer in comparison to the art behind it.
I really liked all of the characters. But something about Sayuri and Hiroshi’s relationship throws me off. And the same goes for Mama and Papa’s relationship. But I think I’m just judging them because they are creatures and not people, therefore, they must have different customs than us.
I’ve watched this like 20 times today, I can’t stop laughing. I don’t understand why people hate this so much. I’m so glad I was told to watch this. I don't think that this film is creepy at all; I just think it's really funny.
Originally, my review was a lot beefier than this, but I changed a lot of things in order to better follow the review guidelines. Plus, it seemed more like an analysis than a review.
Not particularly creepy or disturbing as I was lead to believe it would be, It is rather unwatchable for how boring it is. I really couldn't find any 'shocking' element that so many of you have found in this sayuri anime.
Its one of those animes where I wanted to be disturbed but that I just can't. Thee gore websites have desensitized me so much that now I can look past a real myiasis- infested face without feeling any emotion at all. It strives to shock me 'n' I feel nothing.
There was no plot itself to care about animation/sound; this 3 min ova doesn't have a
meaning or significance. Thee whole thing appears to be littered with nonsensical juxtapositions of necromorphs 'n' spankings. I don't get it.
Holy Mother of God, please forgive me for my sins and give me your strength to forget what I just watched.
Utsu Musume Sayuri was... probably the best possible illustration of how a mad person who was born prematurely after her father ended up in an asylum and her mother consumed at least 1kg of pure mixed heroine/cocaine per day. I literally wondered how could someone have such an idea.
And in case you have the "Why did you watch you it dude" question in mind, let me answer it. I wanted to get this dumb badge (http://www.mal-badges.net/users/otorez#138) which was worth 50 XP. God, sometimes my achievements
/ stats hunter temper leads me to awfully awkward situations...
In fact, you should - if God allows you to - just listen to it and if your brain has not ceased to work, then watch it with the sound. I feel ashamed to quote Shaper, a major character from the hack'n'slash Path of Exile (I love this game), but here his sentence suits decently : "Curiosity is followed by Ambition. Ambition is followed by Madness".
Please be strong and avoid this pure piece of embarassing weirdness.
Now let me tell you, you uncultured swine. This film is far too deep for any of you to understand. You thought Evangelion was a deep anime with thought provoking moments? Guess what, this film brings upon a new standard of advanced anime that no one has ever seen before. Simply comprehending it is impossible for your simplistic minds to see it's true greatness. Sayuri manages to speak on all controversies at once and fully explain the objective right answer to each one. Sorry peasents, but you're going to have to look at this 20 more times before seeing it's true beauty.
This is the weirdest and creepiest "Anime" short I've ever seen. I don't know if this can even be considered an "Anime". If you are looking for the worst things ever made in Japan, welcome to the bottom of the bottom of the barrel.
Don't expect anything from it, the story it's just about the daughter of a good family celebrating her strike and... that's all, nothing more. According to the genres tags, they say this thing is comedy, but I couldn't find anything about "comedy" or "funny" during the 3 minutes I watched this thing.
Art and Animation: 1
The characters are extremely weird, deformed and
indescribables. I couldn't find a definite form in their designs: Sayuri it's a strawberry-like thing with a big and a small eye, Mama and Papa are sausages-like things with many arms (?).
Nothing to say, all I heard being said by the characters was disturbing and the music didn't help.
What characters? They are just deformed and perturbating creatures doing nothing. This short has only 3 minutes of duration, so don't expect them to be developed or multidimensional characters.
Enjoyment and Overall: 1
If you don't want to waste three minutes of your life that you could use to do more important things, you MUST NOT watch this.
Utsu Musume Sayuri could be said to be an epitome of a man's weird imagination.
There's little to no story. It's unorthodox and claims absolutely no sense. The audacity to even introduce the characters blew me away.
Characters, art and animation: 1
Now, this is the worst of all. "Grotesque" manages to describe them quite well. The characters' design, along with the art and its colour direction, leave you with feeling of nausea and headache. The unsettling animation of Papa, who has some sort of a centipede body, is outright ridiculous and outrageous.
Though I admit I laughed at the strike because it didn't make
If you're looking for something that's unorthodox and off the lines, well... This will definitely satisfy your needs and make sure you will never look at it ever again.
If I could unwatch that and get my 3 minutes back, I would.
I'm into literature and movies and finding symbolism in everything, but this was ridiculous. I honestly felt sick to my stomach after watching it and maybe that was the point, but I will never know.
It was grossly sexualized, which again may have been one of the points. There was really no upstanding plot. It was just a weirdly gross family and a lot of "striking". I don't want to spoil it, but I doubt you'd understand it even after watching it. I feel
as if this will haunt my mind for the rest of my day.
I advise against it, however if you're like me and tend to go towards what people advise against, you'll watch it. And you'll probably regret it. And you'll think about how I warned you.
The art was weird though. I didn't hate it, but it really bothered me, which I guess is why I gave it a 3. It bothered me and not a lot of art bothers me so this was surprising and therefore it earned some sort of score other than a 3.
I must add, in case you're scanning this short review for something really imporant that this is only 3 minutes long, and I am not sure it should even count/be called an anime. An animation maybe, but not an anime. I don't know how it was made or what thought was put into it, but it certainly isn't/shouldn't be listed (in my opinion) as an anime just because someone Japanese made it.
It is certainly an art to create something as "bizarre" as Utsu Musume Sayuri; and when I say bizarre, it isn't in the good way. Did you think Mars of Destruction was bad? Now, this is certainly worse. I am open for artistic innovation, yet this piece falls nothing short of being a disgrace to the artistic world. In my eyes that is, because this was quite the watch.
Regarding the story - well, there is actually none, besides some sexual references, which seem to match with the animation it is trying to portray. Speaking of which, it is quite alluring at first, until viewers realize
what it is actually getting at. Character design's are creepy: if you thought Picasso had some strange paintings, be prepared for even stranger ones. From here on it just gets more twisted and bizarre than it already was. The characters were bland, even given the fact that it is 3 minutes long. The 'story" was awful already, yet what was even worse was the sound: the worst pronunciation of english, even for japanese standards, and very basic dialogues at best.
It was 3 minutes I wasted, and I cannot recommend this to anyone, unless viewers are interested in the art style, because that is it's only redeeming feature. And of course if you'd like to see the worst of anime, than it is worth a watch
What could go wrong? It's a three minute long short. It has a funny looking kind of CGI style. It looks whacky and funny. It's not.
This is the only anime production I have ever given a 1 out of 10. This is for good reason. As you may or may not know, the 1 rating stands for 'appalling'. This would mean that giving something a 1 out of 10 would imply that it offended me on a base level. That it made the very 'artistic' ground it waddled upon like a penguin with one eye and one leg shake and feel like it would never
be as solid as it was again. This is for good reason.
Utsu Musume Sayuri is trash. It is garbage. I would reverse time a month or however long ago it was when I forced my eyes to take in the sights of this whole short like it was the goddamn Ludovico Technique but it was just me watching it with my mouth agape and my heart falling down my chest for so long and so deep it felt like it was being thrown into the pits of hell to burn forevermore.
I genuinely fail to think of a positive to this animation. If you were to hold me gently in your arms and say 'please, baby dearest, for me' I might say that the titular character Sayuri's face looks kind of funny and reminds me of Courage the Cowardly Dog. That's about all you would get out of my mentally battered brain and my eyes that look like they've seen the abyss and can never get the sight out. Luckily for you, I can think of SEVERAL negatives.
What story there is is disgustingly vague, unfocused, and obtuse. They're inside a Salvador Dali painting and it's all very erotically charged. Just what I wanted when I switched this on, yes.
The art is painful. It's bizarre and awfully done enough that I can't even tell if this is an all CGI creation or not. It probably is. I don't think anyone drew this. I don't think anyone sat down at their desk with their weary tired hands from whatever trauma they went through in their life to have the mental capacity and damage to create Utsu Musume Sayuri and sketched this. I don't think it was lovingly crafted with the touch and passion of someone that just wants to get a message across to the world about the injustice that is the obligation to obey your parents no matter how sick their demands may be. That's probably what this means.
The sound design is annoying. It isn't satisfying. There's squelches and sqloches and all kinds of splotches and a big resounding SLAP that didn't make me feel satisfied. This whole endeavor just left me feeling empty, like I lost some part of me that would look over any work that would ever be made and think 'it has merit, you know? we can nurture it into something beautiful if we just help them along! you gotta stay positive'.
There are no characters. There are only husks of 'characters'.
I didn't enjoy this. I didn't feel like I gained anything. I write this words on my computer screen now in the hope that I can persuade you to not watch this. That my sacrifice can not be forgotten and I can help you evolve into a well rounded happy person that didn't watch Utsu Musume Sayuri. But you will. It's only three minutes, right?
It seems someone at the party heavily spiked and/or drugged my drinks - I'm seeing some horrifying hallucinatio- ...oh, I'm clean and sober. That's even more concerning.
Behold, Utsu Musume Sayuri - a vivid visual metaphor for the hell it was spawned from; a place lurking in the deepest, darkest pits of the human mind. It lies in ruins, discombobulated and disturbing to witness; the halls echoing with the muffled screams of animators crying out for help; a satanic armchair director with who knows what kinds of fetishes looming over them with a black-souled whip.
Either that, or someone was just incredibly bored. Eventually, it becomes hard
There's a certain point where pure WTFactor goes too far. This is beyond that point. Rather than just being weird or weirdly hilarious, it comes off as extremely unsettling in a bad way, while also failing as a surreal film due to a lack of compelling content.
In the absence of other qualities to raise this up, this isn't worth anyone's time. This is to be viewed only by the brave, heroic souls ready to face the very worst the medium of animation has to offer. To those, I wish you the best of luck, so that you may come out of it alive and with newfound appreciation for life.
0/10. Although, it gets an ironic 10/10 for memorability, because this is truly an "unforgettable" experience, no alcohol required.
At first it was confusing trying to understand who or what Sayuri was and why Utsu Musume Sayuri came into existence as it did seemingly out of nowhere, but then I discovered that there is no need for discovering its origin. In fact, I believe that the lack of origin only makes the show so much more impact with its delivery.
After my first viewing of this anime I was not sure what to think, and I was lost after the first 30 seconds. I laughed a few times in confusion of what was happening and weird it all was. When it was over I was
left with little thought as to what had just happened, so I decided to watch it again thinking that there must be more behind the anime besides how unnatural everything seemed. And because the animation is so bizarre it was only natural that I fixated all of my attention onto that, but during my second viewing, I was able to see facial expressions and movements that I had not noticed before. If you are confused after watching Utsu Musume Sayuri, then I highly recommend watching it at least one more time because the story really does start to make more sense.
Utsu Musume Sayuri centers around Sayuri and his family and friends who have gathered for Sayuri to strike their daughter. Without paying much attention to the visuals, the dialogue sounds like some sort of fetish scene and quickly becomes discomforting. However, the hesitation Sayuri shows on their face and the tears their daughter produce tell a completely different story.
Utsu Musume Sayuri is a story about parenting and what struggles one faces when they take on that task. Parenting is described time and time again as one of if not the hardest job anyone can take; you are raising a whole other life, and you hold responsibility for that life and what they decide to do. In Japanese culture one does not hit their child as a form of discipline; children in Japan do not fear being hit or yelled at by their parents or guardians after getting in trouble, but they worry about how their actions affect others. There is a guilt that resonates inside them about their actions, and this guilt teaches them a lesson about what they have done and causes them to be more careful.
These three minutes depicted the struggle a parent goes through when they decide it is necessary for them to hit their child. The many voices or people who bore witness to whatever Sayuri's daughter had done are telling Sayuri to hit her, but it is not easy to hurt someone that one loves even if they deserve it. Of course its appears odd that the daughter would ask to be hit by Sayuri, especially with everyone surrounding them like it is a sports event. However, when thinking about the way discipline is in Japan the scene makes more sense. If a child has done something truly horrible, then they too will find that they deserve to be hit or punished. The daughter sheds tears before she is hit, and then more afterwards. Physical pain is not the cause of those tears; there is only guilt behind those first tears. After the first strike she is released from her guilt, and she cries more out of thankfulness because she got what she deserved and has repaid the debt for what she had done.
Wtf did I just watch-everyone that watched this show
For this review, I will be focusing on story, art, sound, character and enjoyment, although I will be wondering why I will even be focusing on those. there may be spoilers ahead? yeah, probably no...
Story: This beautiful piece's story may be interpreted with several different ways. Some may think it is about a naughty child who is being spanked for some reason, some may think it's a hidden message about depression or abuse, and some may simply think it is about, huh? what was it about again? If I hadn't read the synopsis I wouldn't have
known. But hey, credits to them for having a story, at least I think it has a story.
Art: Masterful, beautiful, gorgeous looking aesthetically pleasing visuals with the finest art anime could ever even think to produce. Except it's the complete opposite of that. Or is it?
Sound: Straight up disturbing. They weren't even trying to even make it good. It feels like something that a group of pre school children recorded in hopes of becoming a hentai voice actor some day
Character: Dildo san, butt chan and elephant chan? Are these even considered characters?
Enjoyment: No, I did not enjoy it.
Overall: This is hentai but only with worse art than it already has. I can't begin to explain what's wrong with this anime. I am 10 days late from april fools, but hey I can still make an april fools review.
