No, that is not an exaggeration. While y’all are watching lovey dovey, cute anime this Valentine’s Day I thought I would tackle a short crappy anime called BORN BY MYSELF. I actually got the message for once. It’s about metamorphosis (because that’s what the description on MAL said but I did figure it out all on my own by watching it too so kudos to me *patting myself on the shoulder*) and about being reborn and evolve within oneself. It is pretty clear when you see it. It is also very, agonizing clear when you hear it, how painful it is to be reborn and evolve and all that shit.
It is stop motion, clay figure sort of people/creature thingies. The whole thing takes place inside some small rooms and a train car. The “music” is an endless chanting mixed with white noise and then someone tries to sing something now and then. It is horrible and it makes me nauseous. For real nauseous. I had to turn off the sound for a short while just to get my ears a bit of peace.
I don’t know but this scares me more than the Silen’t Hill movie and that says a lot. Then you have to think about how this little thing is only 6 minutes long. Ugh, I am gonna have nightmares about this. You thought Striking Daughter was bad, then this is a disaster ready to strike.
For your convenience I took some screenshots so you don’t have to watch the whole thing and get that pleasant feeling of wanting to vomit and die. And if you really, really, really, really, like really want to feel like you need that feeling of being sick and there are worms crawling inside you and your brain is going to become mushy then you can always watch it on YouTube. The creators themselves has kindly uploaded it there. (scroll down for some more screen shots)
