Alright guys here I go!

It is a short animation so I do recommend this, below this point you will have my review.

This short animation made by Kurosaka Keita has great animation and the art style mixes really well with the sound.

Even though it was short I was able to notice an impressive character development. You can clearly see that the MC had some issues and some mysterious events won't allow me to go deeper into this.

The story itself was rather mehh it wasn't bad but not good either. I could really enjoy some of the moments in this while others just wanted me to read more

Okay. So I'm just gonna put forward an instantaneous vivid imagination, to be honest, that went passed me in a flicker while watching this.

This is really a poorly rated one, I can see, with just two reviews.
Thought I might add one, making it my first review. xD
Of course it's kinda hard to comprehend.
My interpretation is absolutely individual perception.

We all are acquainted with the term Dementia.

The art, animation and sound design were all rather good. The art is... Gutteral? Grissly? Messy? It's hard to put words to it precisely, but the art is far from the more standard, cleaner art styles preferred in the overall medium of animation and this is incredibly suitable for the feeling this piece is clearly trying to portray. The sound design lends further to this feeling of... Isolation, Despair and Anger the character featured appears to be feeling and displaying.

But I feel this piece lacked any real message or meaning. Perhaps it doesn't need one or it is simply very subtle, either way it's not read more

At first glance this short film may seem highly disturbing, disgusting, and confusing. However, it is actually a brilliant work of art should one take the time (and have the stomach) to analyze the deeper meaning behind this piece. I had hoped that the music would be a bit more creative. The sudden stops in the work were essential in their positioning of the various facial organs, demonstrating fine artistic choice. That being said, this anime is not recommended for all audiences. Many will indeed be unable to digest its contents and simply be left with a disturbing feeling. Thus, a word of caution: do read more
