Day 2539: Rin wakes up alone again with blurred memories and still no contact from any other human. She's 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 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 not a very long story, but it's definitely something to make this animation worth looking into. A 17-year-old girl, Rin, is able to do anything in the world. But, there's a reason why she can do this. You find that out through the music video. The ending of the story isn't something you ...

We need more stuff like this.

Anyways, Porter and Madeon's ...
