this might be the most brilliant anime of all time! There is literally nothing that could have been done better. The story was flawless,
The story was flawless, you are a drunk driver and you hit people with your car. what more could you want?!
the art must have been from the future because I'm pretty sure even todays quality is no match! animation was so fluid that the human eye likely can't even keep up with it!
Every sound in this show is perfect! from the windshield wiping to the screams of the people you run into.
There are 5 different characters,
and your one of them! this show literally takes on a new innovative viewpoint by placing the viewer in first person! The characters all had so much depth to them that I nearly cried the entire time, from the first person i killed all the way to the last!
This was a most riveting experience and I can say without a doubt that I thoroughly enjoyed being the main character of such a deep and enthralling show and I am sure you will too!
What more needs to be said? hurry up and watch this thrilling show! Even if it is not your favorite (which it will be) the show is literally under a minute long!
Supplanting the convention of intricate plots, detailed stories, and exemplary animation; 001 blazes its own trail through a myriad of intriguing sounds/screams that captivate the viewer in ways never before imagined.
The enthralling epic begins with rain falling on the windshield of a car — or perhaps it is a truck, the depth in this anime is truly incredible. The first interesting observation the viewer is required to acknowledge is the efficiency of the wiper blades. The driver of this vehicle must have burned a hole in his pocket, because these wipers are top notch! Without fail, every droplet of water
that falls onto his car is wiped up with flawless precision. Absolutely remarkable. The protagonist must shop at some high end store (better than Wal-Mart, that’s for sure) to attain this level of proficiency in his wiper blades. Not to belabor the point, but these blades have the capacity to clear an entire human being with just five wipes! Furthermore, it does this a grand total of four times with no interruptions, smearing, or loss of speed. As the wiper blades continue their rhythmic motion for nearly 40 seconds, one must ask themselves: are these blades employing some form of witchcraft or wizardry? It certainly leaves the viewer asking themselves numerous philosophical questions that are not easily reconciled.
The voice acting compliments the metaphysical conundrum that is the wiper blades by generating obscure sounds to create an atmosphere of turmoil and disorder. The yawning, in particular, was genuinely refreshing amongst the sounds of terrified screaming and random explosions. This nuanced approach lends credence to the thermodynamic principle of entropy, and its powerful role in the anime industry.
Perhaps you think I’ve explained everything that happens in this nearly 40 second tale, but rest assured, there is at least 5 seconds of information that I’ve withheld from my review to preserve your intrigue in watching it for yourself. You can thank me later.
It's just a piece of Sakuga practice work with sound effects added on... as usual for an animator as eating for you.
Don't get it why people are criticizing it as if it should've been some kind of magnificent cornerstone 30+ seconds project in the history of animation development.
Maybe just because it was named 001 and was destined to be in the first place of an alphabet ascending ordered list?
Certainly it's not an epic piece of work. However, when you watch it frame by frame, you can learn how the facial distortion and raindrops are expressed. (How did you recognize those black spots and shadows
as raindrops at first, yeah maybe a second, glance? That's what animators do!)
This piece might be a demonstration material or just for fun.
Going to the opposite direction of the conventional plots, defying the culturally accepted need for stories and disregarding animation standards, 001 shines a new path through the darkness of our times through an explosion of sounds and no colours – with us in our minds.
The piece starts with rain falling on the windshield of a moving vehicle – we can’t know for sure exactly which type it is, the anime leaves open, as if it were a metaphor of life: open, like in a road, we keep going, even though we don’t know what is moving. The first action in the animation shows the tenacity
of the wiper blades, as if they were scratching the veneers of life. The wipers are dank – of course, it’s raining --, and they wipe everything clearly, but the core of the work is when a (thing that resembles a) human is thrown directly on the windshield, the blades still moving. As the blades continue their duty, they slap the (possibly) human on its face, each blade slap changing its complexion. First, a distortion of expressions, then a disturbance is shown in the face, then a grimace of death, then nothing. The cycle repeats as another (thing that looks) human is thrown on the windshield again. A truly remarkable allegory to the phases of life and the fragility of (maybe) human life; nothing, compared to the vastness of time, resembled by the road, and empty, blank void. Over, and over.
The voice acting crowns the transcendental representation that the wiper blades represent by giving birth to squeals that exude an ambiance of unintelligibility and despair, beginning and end. A special attention must be directed towards the yawning: amongst the terrified screaks and occasional explosions, it breaks the expectations of continuity, although giving space to a new beginning, representing the old concept of Ouroboros, the sneak that forever devours its tail -- in search of eternity. So is the cycle of life.
A word that describes this masterpiece is powerful. But it isn’t everything, this piece of work is an experience that must be felt to be understood.
