Update: when i first made this review i was under a false pretense that this was the show. As for dementia anime in general it is not always clear to what the entire picture may be. Although, now after seeing the entire show and not just the trailer for it my feeling haven't changed much.
I still do dislike this anime GREATLY.
the art- This was like a dream normally that is an okay perspective to take but it was the wrong one at least at first. What i mean is this movie has two timelines one that is actual and one
that is fictitious. Both of which are drawn in a dream like fashion. Even though the fictitious timeline was more dream like in nature it made the plot even more confusing. Raising such questions like was the secondary character really the victim or was it the main character (cabbage)?
characters- Greatly underdeveloped. Yes, one could argue a backstory is provided for each character but like i stated in the art segment facts and fiction blend as one here. Which makes separating the truth hard.
Introduction was great. I had no complaints for it came off as relaxing and childlike in appearance. Sadly, given the underlining nature of this anime that feeling was short lived. Ending unlike the introduction was not great. For it raised many questions and did not answer any. I was about to storm of in anger not only at how i was robbed from my questions but i couldn't stand the pain the story left me with. I like to see myself as one who is emotionally connected with the world and finds troubling nature to be extremely painful. Luckily at the time i realized the ending was not entirely over. There was a bonus continuance during the credits. Sadly, i realized that didn't help either but only made me feel worse. I am not sure if there was a kind moral to this story but for the sake of my sanity and love for all things i don't plan on watching this again.
