This is the oldest anime known to man, im honored to be the first to review it.

This anime is about Homer Simpson and his adventures swinging around a sword at blind monks. After that, we get a nice clip of him fighting some guy with a yellow background.

This anime has no sound, but the emptiness where sound would have been still fills your heart with joy.

The final scene is what i call the "step on me" ark, this ark consist of this guy he was fighting with the yellow background stepping on Homer Simpson.

Over all i would give this anime a 10. Its almost as read more

Link to watch:

This is a quick an interesting watch especially if you are into the history of animation. It's a completely silent short film. (That's why it is 1 on sound which isn't really a fair score since it was the limit of the technology of the time, but i clicked it and can't take it back bc idk how) The animation is really strange and the character designs are ummm unique? The way their eyes move is kind of unsettling in my opinion, but I mean what do you expect from the literal oldest existing anime?

Spoilers I guess?: It begins with a read more

Blew me away. The soundscape was really something. It was really heartwarming when he got stepped on. Best Samurai movie to date!! I cried when I saw the sword he bought for three whole coins get bent, but that really developed his character and brought the whole experience to a ten. The googly eyes are able to really depict the time this anime was created. Overall I think nothing here can be improved upon. this is truly the peak of anime. Each aspect builds upon itself to create a beautiful world where the viewer is placed in the center of it to get an amazing read more

Honestly, it was so beautiful that I could not physically keep the tears from flowing down my face. The story was touching, the sound was empty yet so full, the animation was comparable to The God of Highschool, and the atmosphere created by the combination of all these overwhelmingly outstanding aspects of the show fit together like puzzle pieces. I can say that my life has truly changed after experiencing these 4 minutes. It has made me a better person. Every day now I walk outside happy to be alive. I cant help but notice the beautiful trees, beautiful sky, and the beautiful people outside read more
