Nami, probably the best anime that was and will be ever made. If you haven´t seen Nami, you haven´t seen good anime yet. Movie so short, yet containg feeling some series could not show in 12 full episodes. The outstanding story full of clever metaphors is accompanied by even more outstanding revolutional animation which transcends the anime itself and becomes a genre of its own. Nami is one of these anime you just have to rewatch and rewatch again because of how beautifull it is. Similar to Neon Genesis Evangelion, the mind-blowing plot-twist will make your head full of thoughts for at least a month, read more

Japan is a country that is infamous for producing very questionable content. As anime fans this should come as no surprise since we actively explore the medium that constantly crosses the line of what's sociably acceptable.

Nami is that kind of anime short, it's 3 minutes that passes absurdity to become mildly comical. Not quite sure if it was alluding to a woman's naturally produced funky pheromones that come as a result of not cleaning the pink taco.... or just a guy with too much spare time on his read more

Nami is a form of an art. It is simply mindblowing.

Story 10/10

This anime had a deep meaning. This is my analysis. The story is about a girl searching for enjoyment, but it was backfired when what she searched for coming crazy at her. It caused internal pain to her and she was struggling with every single thing that she had to dealt with. She withstood the pain with everything she had, this can be seen with her facial expressions. Fish represented as problems that she had to deal with daily. The fish came for various places indicating that we, as a human being will have read more

English is not my native language.

Nobody has to be a genius to know when you encounter content that may be "rare" and also very, very "indescribable" perhaps because these contents were not made for you and only did so as a hobby that somehow ended to come to you when least expected or wanted.

Now the more interesting question is: What is it the content with which you had the "amazing" luck to find ?. A "movie" (if it can be considered one) to 3 minutes long about a fish with stop-motion animation ... trying to attack and rape someone ?.

To be honest: I have no read more
