Intelligent Dance Music. I really dislike it.

I love your new name.


You seem to know Swans. Check out Autechre, if you're in the mood for some good IDM, and yes, this term is arrogant and stupid. Also, in any case, my favorite artist is Kashiwa Daisuke.

Absolutely. And I surmise you have yet to watch the true "balls to the walls" part of it, as people like to call it, which should be legitimately changed to "brains to the walls". Everything that happens in it, the third movie, is just so video gamish (and I really enjoy video games), in its worst possible sense, so baffling from a viewer's perspective, and so disrespectful of Urobutcher that it really earns being called garbage, it's as if it aims to make the franchise reach that status. But, back to the anime, it's just lackluster, not bad, but definitely not even remotely brainy.

Is simplicity a bad thing?

Diamonds are considered one of the most beautiful objects in all the world; yet, the exquisiteness of a diamond is the result of a chain of covalently bonded carbons, making the entire structure, surprisingly, a single molecule. Very simple, yet elegant. Juxtapose this with a complex human contrivance, like plastic — which looks crude — and one can determine that complexity, in and of itself, means very little.

A simple story, in the same regard, executed with extreme precision, can be a delightful affair. Take Takahata’s earlier work, Only Yesterday, for example. One of the most memorable scenes in the entire movie is when Taeko and her family experience their first taste of fresh pineapple. It’s a "simple" scene in which the members of Taeko’s family become disappointed by the fruit’s “odd” taste; yet, it conveys a wealth of interesting insights into her family support system, or lack thereof. The father is frustrated by the occurrence (an important detail later on) and begins to smoke his cigarette to eliminate the taste from his mouth; Taeko’s sisters claim that bananas are the “king of all fruit,” which can be seen as a passive-aggressive insult; and Taeko herself attempts to force the pineapple down her throat, as she feels compelled to prove a point to her family — even though they all leave the table, and don’t really care.

In terms of the moon people, I believe they represent the Buddhist ideal of achieving a state of nirvana. Under such an assumption, we would suspect that these angelic creatures have transcended human suffering, desire, and sense of self (i.e. attaining “perfect happiness”). Takahata, through Kaguya, reject this notion of eternal bliss, instead opting for an existence with an extensive amount of emotional and physical pain, to experience intermittent moments of joy. Sure, the majority of Kaguya’s brief existence was spent in emotional turmoil, due to the rash decisions of her father, and the unrealistic standards of conforming to the opulent class. Despite these constant hindrances, however, Kaguya found ways of reconnecting with the simplicity of her past, finding pleasure in a cherry blossom tree or reconnecting with Sutemaru. Ironically enough, these occurrences led to melancholic results, reminding the viewer of the transience of happiness, and how it must be cherished in the moment. In other words, a brief moment of jubilation exceeds the reach of prolonged pain.

Or, as John Green puts it: “Without pain, how could we know joy?”

I wrote this response to another person with the same inquiry:

Princess Kaguya, while simple in its approach and animation, yielded a plethora of interesting insights on the human condition. Kaguya was a carefree, optimistic girl who enjoyed her humble life with her friends and her parents. Through the corrupting power of money, her father tears her away from her joyful existence, forcing her to acquiesce to the "ideals" of wealth. As she transitions to adulthood, several suitors line up to marry her, but not for her delightful personality, as they are only concerned about her beauty and wealth. It displays the hollowness of the opulent class, as they seek the Princess as an object, and not as a partner in life. Furthermore, Kaguya’s presumed partner, Sutemaru, has not ceased his existence (as often happens in Hollywood land) to wait for Kaguya, as he commenced a relationship with someone else, and started his own family. Life is a finite occurrence, allowing brief moments for us to capture our desired ambitions; otherwise, we could lose out to someone, or something else.
