I heard about this 6 minute animated short a few days ago and was pretty surprised by it. The meaning is open to interpretation, but it seems to me that it's commenting on the impacts of a hardcore otaku lifestyle and the struggle between that and real life. It also had a really fantastic soundtrack. It was released on Nov. 20th for some anime expo contest or something. I haven't seen anything about it on the forums here so I thought I'd see what other people think.

You can google "mememe" and it's the top result.

Hit the "Skip Opening" button if you don't want to watch 1:30 of stick figures.

Note: This short is extremely NSFW. It has a fair amount of pretty graphic nudity, so if you don't like that sort of thing, you might not want to watch it.

I didn't watch it for the interpretations, I watched for the breasts and animation.

I started flipping out when Pink drooled that psychedelic semen into the dude's mouth. Crazy stuff.

Haha, fair enough. If that's what you want, then I'm sure the video didn't disappoint!

Notice: This is definitely not for the weak of heart, if you doubt your ability to handle it then don't go there.

There is primarily one word I would use to describe this. Wild...

This gave me the feeling of a hallucination daze trip that went beyond the boundary. To me it was clearly an excursion of fantasy where the object of obsession turned on him, and the implications that his life was being consumed by it was well portrayed. The use of Bleach hollow mask on the primary woman was good too in representing an inner demon coming to life. A person could probably read quite a bit into it from their own life experience, but overall I think the core they were working from is as I stated.

I really liked how they tied the end scene to the very beginning of the post stick figure animation as a continuous loop, as though to say there is no escape once the journey has begun.

I did a forum search prior to posting and didn't see any duplicates. Possible I missed something though.

The middle segment with what I assume is a memory from the past and his regret surrounding that memory was really powerful. And yeah, that looping was awesome. It's almost like he just thought "I failed, guess I'll try to change myself tomorrow."

You know this video was on the front page news several days ago? CR didn't have a problem with it being linked in the news post, I don't see why it would be a problem now...

It is *very* nsfw though lol.

Love the music and vid a lot, it's quite trippy and something I would expect to see from Japan. :3

I would love to know what the actual story is to the whole thing, I bet it would be pretty interesting.

Oh, was it? This site has so much more traffic in the forums and site updates than it used to. I guess I miss a lot of things when I only check in every few days to catch up on shows
