Day 2539: Rin wakes up alone again with blurred memories and still no contact from any other human. She is not bored, however, because in her arms lies a tablet capable of creating any world her heart desires. Day after day, Rin crafts a wonderful reality—one utopia at a time—to shelter her from loneliness, hoping to one day reveal the truth behind her very existence.

This turns out to be way worse than what I expected.

Story - 6: They fail at this. They really do. It's seriously hard to understand the freaking whole story, and after understandng it, it really sucks tbh. [SPOILERS?] There's a man that has a daughter and he sacrifices (?) himself to save the daughter and sent her to a planet and live on her own bla bla.. That's all. It's seriously nonsense.

Because it is quite absurd to me that so many people seem to hail Shelter as some revolutionary, influential piece of art when I fail to see anything Shelter has done different from other emotional shows. And to call it emotional is such a disservice to all the shows that invoke emotions using the well-structured plot and relatability. ...
