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 read more

Proof that 90% of users on this site don't actually care about the artistic merit of a work. Accurate to the actual process of embryonic development? No, absolutely not, but that level of scrutiny should be saved for works with genuine educational value in mind.

The animation present in this piece is more fluid than most anime fans are probably used to, which may lead to shock and disgust from the uninitiated. As a rule when an animated film runs at higher than single digit frame rate regular anime watchers will have a hard time keeping up, but this is no cause for alarm, a little read more

Somehow this short ONA manages to both be one of the most strange anime in the Dementia pantheon, while also having absolutely nothing interesting to talk about. It's an inaccurate loop of an embryo becoming a fetus. It's not a bad gif per say, but it's just a gif.

Story - 4

I can confirm that the "Embryo" in question develops into a "Fetus".

Art - 7

I could very much visualize the "Embryo" becoming a "fetus", however the inaccuracy of the process and visuals hinder the score.

Sound - 1

I was disappointed at the lack of noise while watching the "Embryo" developing into the "Fetus".

Character - 1

I can't say read more
