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.

I saw that some people gave this piece a 1 for incredible exaggerated reasons. It's a fucking music video. It's 6 minutes long. ...

This might be one of the worst things I have ever watched.

Let's get two things out of the way. Undeniably, this video looks good. It's well drawn, well animated, and is certainly eye catching with its colorful visuals and impressively imaginative landscapes. As music, this is not something that's suited to me, but I can at least understand people who think that Porter's music is palatable to them.

My problem with this piece is not related to the audiovisuals but rather with the idea that this should be taken as a story or a music video that is trying to be something more than just ...
