this might be the most brilliant anime of all time! There is literally nothing that could have been done better. The story was flawless,

story: 10
The story was flawless, you are a drunk driver and you hit people with your car. what more could you want?!

art: 10
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!

It's just a piece of Sakuga practice work with sound effects added on... as usual for an animator as eating for you.

The first interesting observation the viewer is required to acknowledge is the efficiency of the wiper blades.

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 read more
