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.

If the scratched vinyl record music is replaced by a NU-Metal music from the mid-2000s, where the lyrics are about the non-existence of the will to live because the mother didn't buy the cereal that the singer wanted, and that action led to a thought about a anti-capitalist movement, I think that a video clip could have been remembered at a meeting of former students, on how stupid they were when they used to listen to that type of songs.

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 ...
