Animation film celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Senba Center Building. Based on the manga "A manga in the Semba Center Building" by You Machida.

One day, manga artist YOU Machida received a request to draw the Semba Center Building, which was celebrating its 50th anniversary. This is the story of a quiet dialogue between a manga artist who has suffered from depression in the past and the Senba Center Building, a generous old commercial facility that has lived for 50 years in the middle of Osaka, over a four-day period.

No review here as of this upload. So I will be the first to make some informative kind.

I won't explain what the narrative is about, the synopsis is there, rather the plus points it brings. I really liked how the execution of "Pretending to forget" goes around, it uses a narrator to dialogue the route of the main character You Machida, which I thought was quite clever, in that, I don't know if I am correct in saying this, but it feels like a good way to look at things from within the mind rather than a surface level. Correlates well with the mental illness ...
