The Japan Animator Expo is going on and one short film in particular called "ME!ME!ME!" is getting a lot of attention in particular.
...when you start watching, it might be easy to see why.
At first I thought this was pandering to an otaku audience (certainly some reactions to it still enforce that), but there's obviously something else going on as the exotic and sexually euphoric energy is substituted by a much more depraved, lost, and horrific tone that is a lot less pleasurable and much more uncomfortable.
Here's a summary worded better than I could ever hope to:
ME!ME!ME! is an animated music video, a horror story, an indictment of otaku culture. A young man lies, sullen and empty on his bed, drowning his lost love in an oversexed haze of bishoujo figurines, impossibly sexy idols, breasts, fluids, video games, and violence, a cycle of alienation and loathing from which he can't escape.
Maybe that's giving it a little too
much credit (even though it's much more clear). But if you take nothing else away from it, then it's certainly one hell of an animated music video with great dance beats, unique/pleasant vocals, and a catchy beat.
tl;dr: EVA-styled escapism on XTC with a sick beat. Enjoy animated mind-fuckery!
