[Anime Short Review]
The night on Taneyamagahara open with the conversation of the four workers in the night around a campfire. Three of them are talking about their experience during their life as workers. The story then move on to the conversation about weeds and oak trees about the season and their surround environment.
on the visual section, Simply put, The Night on Taneyamagahara is a brilliant piece of arts. Everything is hand-drawn, with fluid color almost as if it is a canvas painting animated. The backgrounds are detailed and encapsulate perfectly what japan is on the rural era.
The story however, Is a mixed bag. Taneyamagahara’s presentation
is a dialogue after dialogues with a still picture following. It just 27 minutes length but it feels as though it was 3 hours show, the pace is very slow and not in a kind of a good way. However personally I can’t tell the show is bad, merely because the plot is actually quite deep and I think you may found some messages the anime deliver if you invest some attention to the anime, and the presentation is actually quite nice with the story was told with narrated picture-book format.
As for the sound, it was mute for the most part. With the sound seems giving the chance for the dialogue to take over and deliver the atmosphere.
The backsound boosted thought at the near the ending which I think is simply beautiful.
In the end, this anime is certainly doesn’t more attention than it actually needed, but I think there are something to find for those who likes to pay attention deeply to some anime. More or less this anime just appear to broaden the horizon of your anime collection which is also one of the purpose this review was made.
