A lot of Silent hill memories come to mind. But fer some reason I found it somewhat enjoyable.

It was a little bit better after I muted it.

The repetitive music, the rough transitions and the wild and frequent cuts succeeded in creating a highly unsettling atmosphere.
The true meaning remains ominious and offers many possibilities for diverse interpretations.

The soundtrack was nice, but didn't really match the atmosphere

To me too some Silent Hill reference (the train in SH3).
Also, I believe it's influenced by the works of David Lynch.
Good anime project, 4/5 from me because I don't understand what happened in there.

The "music" is Adhan but a bit edited. I hear it 5 times a day calm down people :P

Interesting setting and the sounds sounded like a song at the beginning of each loop which sounds nice. But other than that I don't know what happened.

Well...atleast it was a better love story than Sayuri? I think. Idk, this was still equally disturbing.

Was expecting something more horrifying, TBH.

The repetitive music really annoyed me, despite if it was on its own, well designed. The fact that I could clearly hear where it repeated, and it did that noise tens of times just got on my nerves, when its something they could have pretty easily fixed I feel.

Annoying audio and the animation itself seems amateur. It's not smooth and they couldn't even keep the camera still between frames. Could've been spooky if executed properly. Shame.

Well... I can't do that, so nice job.

I wouldn't want to watch it again, or similar things so 2/10.

Did that mother just left that child by themselves, how irresponsible!

Maybe this carried a message of self reborn or something, but it was hella bizarre like it was from a cult or something.

5/10.

Spooky, creepy, very dark and nightmarish. It worked for me, I think it's worth watching.

Human psyche really is a mysterious place.

Also, 6 minutes but I felt like I was watching this short for nearly an hour... weird.

I lost attention almost immediately. The looping audio pissed me off.
