This is NSFW.

Again, this is NOT SUITABLE FOR WORK.

http://youtu.be/wf070oAX028



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:
Quote
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!

...I'm not surprised to find out that Hideaki Anno's the president of the studio that made that. ^_^; Because I relate a lot of his works on a disturbing level, and while he's not actually involved with this one, it still hits home way too hard. I know it's about Otaku-ism or whatever, but on a personal level I find that there are a lot of scenes that...aren't very different from delusions, experiences, metaphors, and dreams/nightmares I've had in the past, and I feel it could be just as easily used as an allegory for sexual repression/addiction. I dunno if I should go into detail or not...like, I had a whole big thing planned out, but I dunno if it'd be worth it or just be too weird, and it involves things I don't even talk to my therapist about...

Western KanColle player very...enthusiastic about finishing the current event

This originally came from some guy's Twitch stream and got posted on Nico Nico Douga (popular Japanese video sharing site).  I found a youtube version because I know NND can be a pain if you don't have an account (and thus the circle is complete...).  Anyway, you have to wonder...is this the image they have of western KanColle players in Japan?

Interesting that it was able to touch at you in some way.  I thought how the video 'looped' by the end was perfect at trying to chip away that deeper meaning.

So, my mum calls me downstairs to watch something.

Kudos to them, it's not necessarily easy tunes to adapt...(I would have stole the props).

I still can't believe Dancing with the Stars Did the Mario.

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Yeah, thanks for sharing. Lord knows I never would've watched it without your recommendation. Only thing I didn't like was that I was kinda hoping for a "solution" by the end, but I feel like the guys who came up with this kinda came to the same conclusion I did on both fronts (I can relate to both the otaku-ism part and the meaning I found in it):

Code:
where it'll just kinda eat away at you until you eventually succumb. I think the very last bit might've been saying "but maybe there's still some fight left even after that," but maybe I'm reading too deeply now...

Dunno if I needed to spoiler that but better safe than sorry.

Arguably, it's probably more shocking that there isn't a proper conclusion; the piece wasn't meant to satisfy in the typical way.

Still the BEST Final Fantasy VI and...Garfield Mash-Up EVER.  Or still a really high-ranking spoof film with FF-inspiration.
I especially love the attack "Mondays".

@Dice: There's no "deeper meaning" intended in ME!ME!ME! when everything is presented clearly with the audiovisual storytelling they went with.

Some people not wanting to give the short credit, I take it, is not to fall in the category of being a weirdo.
