The storyline itself is interesting yet the constant replay of the same soundtrack trying to make the film "spooky" will annoy you if you don't have the patience to completely finish this 6 min film.

I personally disliked this film just because of the constant soundtrack replaying + with no dialog at all..

patience is virtue but honestly.. this is not my type of anime at all..

if you were somehow to have a bag of weed lying beside you, this video will take you on a trip that you will never forget.

a 3 overall rating if sober
if high, yes, it might even be a 10.

This is the first time in my life I have watched something so dreadful, so energy-draining, so fucking-with-my-mind in the worst way possible. Actually… never mind, Nami exists. Even so, worse than Sayuri, Jesus Christ. This is the first time I have felt the need to rate an "anime" with a negative number, though. -1(00) would be great. The repetitive track was fucking with my mind. The ending was the cherry on top, shit. I wanna die. Or go back in time and kms before watching this.

And MAL won't let me post this review cus it's too short, huh. I don't wanna think anymore ...

I like my weird stuff. I really do.

Although there is a *whole* internet for literal unearthly unholy entities of "what in the hell" that I have barely touched, I would still consider myself quite the wanderer, frequently visiting places that offer the odd cursed images to horde.

This has to be an entire video that sums up my time on said places.

It's strange. Weird. Mortifying. Extraterrestial. Ungodly. Disturbing. Distorted nature of things up to whatever the hell they are usually up to.

Have to admit, amidst the nonsense and lack of conscious thought present here, this is pretty good nightmare fuel.
