I honestly don't know why so many people gave this animation such a low score.
Story: 6 - Fair story, for a one-minute-anime.
Well, as the title says, the story is about an embryo that develops into a fetus, a alien. It doesn't have a in depth story or a real educational value, but it surely don't have any plot holes as *many* big titles out there.
Art: 8 - Actually good animation.
The animation is very simple, being also black and white, but the style is very calming and not aggressive at all. The high point of the animation is the fluidity, almost every animator can learn something looking at this anime, all the frames are almost perfectly in sinc. with one another. There is no exaggeration on explosions, bad CG or stuff like that.
Sound: 3 - There is none.
Although not having sound wold almost surely award a 0, this anime gets 3 from me.
Lets start at 0:
+1 There is no dialog what so ever, but it also does not need dialog.
+1 The music is not there, but it also doesn't hurt my ears like many other anime music does.
+1 The absence of sound makes the animation , that is the best part, the focus of the anime.
Character: 6 - Develops enough for an 1 minute short.
The character is not a copy and paste from another anime, like most "something-dere" characters today, and its somewhat unique in appearance. It has no personality, witch means that it doesn't have a fake persona or a unrealistic or forced way of doing stuff, bla, bla, bla...
Enjoyment: 7 - Not bad, showed to my friends.
Even if you don't like anime or don't know what it is, this one gets a "It's a nice GIF" easily from someone that sees "The Embryo Develops into a Fetus". It's not something I would watch again more than twice (unless I try to make a review), but I would not say i lost my time with this, as I said, it's something nice to see.
Overall: 5 - It's a question of what "Could have been"
The animation is nice, there's no much more to say about this anime. It is not bad and I definitely find it better than many stuff you can find out there. I can easily see this anime being a animated screen saver or wallpaper or something.It's not a good story, but it developed the character more than average anime does in that time frame. read more
