I love when Studio 4c makes these short creations, even when they're only 5 minutes. The animation is always great, and the whole thing is just interesting and entertaining. Looking forward to the episodes to come.

Yeah, but what the hell did we just watch? Anyone?

Is it meant to be a creation myth or something?

My senses loved this part, but I'm still not entirely sure about the hidden meaning. The animations were just perfect and the song used was just, eh, uplifting?

Wow. SO fresh :3 This is the direction anime/animation should be going. You can think about it find meanings, there's metaphors in there. But who cares?! Music + abstractness = awesome.

I think I might dock all my scores 1 or 2 points now.

meh... as an intro it was ok, nice animations, but I found it a bit too abstract to like it. I got bored with it halfway through.

just couldnt agree more...

i feel like this short was a piece of art where u should just enjoy it instead of trying to find (if there are any) hidden meanings....

for me it was simply awesome

i think the meaning is... even if they crack open your skull and eat up all the love in there, it's a beatiful world and if you believe and try again you can love again and the more you love, love gets better and better *gives you wings* like gatorade.

Wow that was an experience..
Animation and art were great and the music was okay too. I like this :)

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.

No idea what I watched but it was stunning, yes. Way to make a first impression in five minutes.
I think, then procrastinate.
Therefore, I am.

Well, that was one hell of an intro. I'll try not to read too deeply into these shorts, as they're most likely made to primarily experiment with animation techniques, but at the very least, the impression I got out of the intro was the the idea of multiple individuals with a love and passion for animation coming together into that brain, hence "Genius Party."

That seemed like some sort of cult ritual lmao. I know there was a metaphor in there... probably.

And still, Bill will live on.
He will befriend the next inhabitants of the earth, beings of light who revere him as a god.
And Bill will outlive them all... for millions and millions of years...exploring, learning, living,
until the earth is swallowed beneath his feet.
Until the sun is long since gone.
Until time loses all meaning and the moment comes that he knows only the positions of the stars
and sees them whether his eyes are closed or open.
Until he forgets his name and the place where he'd once come from.
He lives and he lives until all of the lights go out.

I liked the animation, but the music was really boring and repetitive. Almost like it was ripped from a character select screen from a videogame or something. But I am looking forward to see more! At least it looks creative, even if the episodes might not make any sense.

First episode was weirdly trippy, intrigued at what the rest will be like
“I love heroes, but I don't want to be one. Do you even know what a hero is!? For example, you have some meat. Pirates will feast on the meat, but the hero will distribute it among the people! I want to eat the meat!” - Monkey D. Luffy
