Female humanoid cockroaches do calisthenics (though resembling normal dancing more).

More of an art piece rather than music.

Huh? I am all for learning new things but can someone explain to me the point of this anime? For me, the show was a waste of time(15 seconds). No plot, the art is a simple cut, copy and paste job with slight modifications in height, color, and other form of appearance.

While browsing the recommendation tab on MAL, I discovered this hidden gem. It may only be 15 seconds longs, but I have watched it over 15 times, being mesmerized by the artwork and sound alone. You may be wondering what the point to this is, well I guess you would only be wondering if you were high. I on the other hand fully comprehend the premise of this, it's calisthenics of course.

I have never eaten shrooms, tripped on acid, smoked PCP but I imagine the experience is similar to watching ‘Cockroach Calisthenics’.

As soon as you click play, dancing anthropomorphic female cockroaches assault your senses. Writhing and contorting against a bright pink backdrop, these three arthropods move their human limbs with gusto. Gone are their wings, ovipositors, ocelli, maxillary palps. Instead, their waxy head, thorax, abdomen consists of human eyes, mouths, legs, arms, buttocks, and – of course – breasts. Their eyes are closed, mouth slightly agape, antennae twitching to a sublime beat only felt by them.
