>this fucking youtube level streaming quality
danbooru called her "Hana"
Even if it is just a search engine, I'm going to trust google's judgement on this one and pass.
Is anyone kinda curious why the "minions" are called "meme MassProduction Type-A/B/C".
>Type-A being the pic
>Type-B being the bikini/pantsu only Type-A
>Type-C being the nipple/clit piercing slut
Also pure pink is referred to as Hanachan, but queen pink is referred to as "HANA Transformation,The final Transforme style"
Names can mean alot sometimes.
Also Hanachan still looks 100% pure while naked.
She did nothing wrong
Please don't bring back my middle school memories.
>What a fag.
Yeah fuck this kid. I mean look at her. She is too perfect.
>Having a 3D GF who looks 2D while everything around me looks 2D while still being 3D
Meme is probably their name, and they're all mass-produced.
HANA's name in Japanese is ハナ 変身, 変身最終形態. HANA Transformed, Final Transformation (Form). Meme's name in JP is written メメ so it should be MEME too if HANA's name is written all caps. Both are written in katakana as opposed to hiragana.
Every time I see an image of that face I've looked for the source, and I've failed. I can't retroactively lurk, and people don't go around posting sources with their reaction images like that. In fact, the archive says that the specific 12... filename is the only filename for that image.
>all 12 were me
The manga that image is cropped from is one of the most frequently talked about series on /a/. >>117382872 has already given you your hint, so you should be able to work it out from there.
Tooth fangs are the result of the canines sitting unaligned with the rest of the mouth.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you think it's cute I will respect your opinion, but will disagree nonetheless.
2D makes everything perfect.
Because it's fun, well animated, and has gainax lewdness and bounce.
I just wish I had more weebms of it.
>picture clearly wasn't made from an Eleven
>pixiv location: Germany
All she did was put up a good girl façade for a couple of minutes and told you a sad story, and you believe she's actually a good girl and not tricking you. Absolutely opeless.
You could have your very own twerking tulpa
>All she did was put up a good girl façade for a couple of minutes and told you a sad story, and you believe she's actually a good girl and not tricking you.
What are you talking about? It's clear mask-chan is the good one. She's just trying to devour and destroy all his guilt and regret. It's the stupid "normal" girl who keeps getting in the way.
Thanks, I've been looking for that for god knows how long.
My dick can only handle so much anon
No problem, friend.
Feels nostalgic seeing 12___ images again.
Would you let her eat you?
Yeah, the non-otherkin, non-sjw parts where people post about anime and lewd.
Tumblr has more porn than 4chan.
Reminder that nipponese girls purposely fuck up their teeth because it makes them seem immature aka less womanly and more approachable to beta jap men.
If you find those fangs cute then you have a thing for little girls
I only mildly payed attention to these threads until now. Saw the vid 4 times already and I am now obsessed with it storywise. I get that MC broke up with girl, so is the masked thing her pent up emotions coming back for vengeance? Because thats the vibe I get. Her mysery over the breakup manifested as some demoness who is using lust to lure the guy into her trap and get her vengeance. Or the MC could be imagining everything. What theories have you faggots been coming up with?
Twerking part of the video's lyrics:
You told me
I am the sorrow and hatred within you
What you made up was a lie?
Are you sure you didn’t make an idol out of me?
My heart will conveniently change as yours does…
MEME=sexy blue girls, Hana=normal pink hair HANA=Masked girl right?
Also I'm not seeing this as purely otaku fantasies. The scene where he's watching himself speaking with (breaking up?) with the girl seems to imply it must have happened in realspace at some point.
Really? I honestly would have thought the lyrics at that part would translate to HANNAH MONTANA HANNAH MONTANA HANNAH MONTANA HANNAH MONTANA HANNAH MONTANA SHE BE TWERKIN TWERKIN TWERKIN TWERKIN ALL DAMN NIGHT
Yeah. They all have names in the character designs below the video. Shu-chan, Hana-chan, HANA, and MEME.
Hana-chan has a matching bracelet on the opposite hand which further points to them being an item at one point.
The fucking contrast of innocence, and at the same time, predatory lust, all in one design is fucking brilliant.
Something in her expression manages to exude both of those things at once to me, and I don't know how that's possible.
Hana's not his ideal girlfriend. Rather, it's the entire point that she wasn't ideal. She was his real life ex and had problems just like any normal person but he wasn't brave/competent enough to deal with it and ended up wallowing in his own problems instead. The thing he's staring at in the beginning isn't a tablet for watching anime on or anything, it's the picture frame of the two together they keep flash backing to before he starts imagining that MEME is in the picture frame instead. But this is all pretty obvious stuff really.
HANA's really the most open to interpretation like >>117384298 mentioned.
>mfw when everything you said is true
Then what is the point of the twerking scene? Everything was alright until she shows up, in which Shu makes get shocked by his own fantasy turning into something supersexual. Why would she want that when he was already immersed in a pretty good fantasy?
Plus, HANA pretty clearly wants to hurt him. She always pushes herself on him, she always does something negative to him. It's her that ruins his dream. Why would she show up just to make him forget again?
she's a qt
Why? I've been on /a/ since 2003, if you're that analpained about the filenames you should probably re-evaluate your priorities. The best part about this on tumblr is that the usual suspects are legitimately upset because there's nudity.
The masked thing is
>his fear of commitment
>his idealized, unrealistic expectation towards women
>his masturbation adiction
Pick your poison, really, anything that is congruent with the general message of YOUNGSTERS THESE DAYS, KEEP JERKIN' IT TO THEIR WHY-FOOS 'STEAD OF GETTIN A REAL RELATIONSHIP works.
The lyric translations around are incomplete but they imply that the guy had really unrealistic expectations of a relationship. The girl gave everything she could to him but he was still not pleased and broke up with her.
Now in the video he seems to be on a loop dreaming that the girl uses his porn and idol fantasies against him and takes revenge. He regrets everything and tries to fight back but loses.
>Why would she show up just to make him forget again?
She shatters his memories of his girlfriend and swallows her whole and then he goes back to his bright MEME fantasy. It's possible for HANA to be more than one thing, but HANA definitely wants him to forget in the end.
Anno didn't have a input on this video.
>She shatters his memories of his girlfriend
Which wouldn't have surfaced in the first place if not for her. More to the point, it's HANA spitting in his mouth that makes him relive those memories.
>then he goes back to his bright MEME fantasy.
And you know this how?
I wonder if there's any significance to the fact HANA's consistently aiming for MC's head (and only his head). She eats and gets rid of the bottom half of his body during the cannibalism scene and later gets the MEMEs to shoot it off.
Basically what I'm saying is that it's really long winded symbolism for him to stop thinking with his dick.
So let me see if I understand this short at least partially
MC ( Shu?) was probably dating a girl named Hana. However, Shu and Hana break up at some point and Shu either develops or had already developed an unhealthy obsession with idols/otaku stuff revolving around a character named MEME. Shu regrets letting his relationship fall apart, tries to fix things for a short time but is ultimately consumed by his obsessions.
>But from that's a step away from the MEME fantasy.
But the MEME fantasy repeats. How could he jump right back into the fantasy if he didn't stop thinking about his girlfriend? When he succumbs to HANA, he is able to stop thinking about his girlfriend. HANA could very well be both his desire to be with his girlfriend and his desire to forget, sure, but the desire to forget wins out.
I think you mean Meme.
Hana = pink hair
Meme = blue hair
the anime expo player actually loops the video back to the 1:30 mark after completion. This is by design, as that first minute and a half is an introductory logo segment.
Once the animation finishes, it loops back to the point it was literally designed to loop back to. So yeah, we know it repeats.
...As I typed this, you seem to have been fucking carpet bombed with this exact information. Let this be a lesson to you, I guess?
Actually, the perspective of the eye socket of the skull make me believe we're looking at a more diagonal shot of her face. They're not Below her skull, they're In Front of them.
Since it's music there's some parts that are not easily heard by a foreign ear. Neither of the current translations are complete. But it's here:

DRAKENGARD 4 CONFIRMED
>What are you doing now?
>How are you going to live?
>No matter how long you live, you are a loser
>Even though you are smiling
>(something) almost frightening
>It built up and up, about to overflow
>The figure, those memories
>Over-glorified, one after another
>Envy Envy, that side looks fun
>Envy Envy, that girl
>I have tried my best
>What have you “tried” as you?
Wow, stop bullying NEET.
Seriously though, these lyrics made me feel bad.
I do notice that a lot of the shots they look happy together in look a bit 'cliche'. So EVEN NOW, he only glorifies moments that are, literally, picture perfect to him and seems shocked when he sees himself leaving Hana in a crying mess because of the same selective memory and his younger self's expectations and mistakes.
So in essence, I think that MC was maybe already an otaku shutin piece of shit (No matter how long you live, you are a loser/No matter what nothing changes, you just keep living) and managed to dig himself out of the hole once, but had unrealistic expectations of what real life/3DPD was like and just fell into the same old situation. Just as his life situation looped, the video and the fantasies he has loops as well. And he tries to dig himself out of it again in the latter part of the video, failing this time because he's still thinking of things as too black and white everything must be muh perfect imagination. Even if he succeeded in digging himself out, if he still had that kind of mindset, nothing would change. Things would just repeat themselves with him reverting back to laying on his bed wallowing in his own shittiness.
So they're not only telling you to get off your bed you otaku piece of shit, make sure you think and act correctly so you stay off the fucking bed.
That's my interpretation of it anyway. Anyone want to pitch in their 2 cents?
>Anyone want to pitch in their 2 cents?
My interpretation in the video is pretty much a self-insert of my current situation, so take don't take it too seriously or objective.
I think Shu is depressed after time of breaking up with Hana, passing by his time with his hobbies and delusions, like MEME, avoiding thinking about Hana. But his memories of her always come back (as HANA), tormenting him with negative emotions, I also think HANA is more like a dark side of Shu, like a shadow, trying to taint his memories of Hana (because it's easier to go on after a break up if you end up hating the other person).
So, you have HANA trying to fuck up with Shu's happy memories of Hana, Shu getting angry by it, and getting defeated.
If I had to write it in dialog form to be more understandable, it would be something like:
>Shu: ha ha ha, time to fap and forget about everything!
>HANA: nice cum, here, let me give it back to you and remind you of the failure of a GF you had.
>Shu: fuck you HANA, she was pure, don't say shit about her.
>HANA: nah, fuck you.
And it all ends in a loop, with Shu having happy no worries days, and then some days he remembers he's a failure (represented by HANA).
Fuck it all.
I like this interpretation. Rather than accepting what his relationship was, he keeps rejecting reality and it only hurts him more and more. He tries to fight but he can never win because his resistence only empowers HANA.
I took it to be a representation of his feelings of sadness/guilt over leaving Hana "eating him alive". The fact they ate from bottom to top was just to allow his head to remain in for the kiss scene.
i'm about to over analyze everything as i perceive. Art is meant to be perceived by the eye of the beholder.
>the short film starts with the eye 1:46
he a obvious hiki and obsessed with anime girl meme (blue).
>"lilith" hana first dropped (four eyed pink girl) 2:40
lilith seems to be seen on a throne forshadowing the authority over meme and condemning the once innocent cutesy meme to being whorish temptation. percieved cells or grids seem to support this 2:55.
>hiki wakes up after lilith literally smothers him to death with breasts
lilith is first implied to be a part of reality by bizzarely and grotesquely invading the hiki's solitary dominion 3:19. keep in mind lilith being born of the same portrait used to worship meme idol.
>Lilith takes off mask becoming reality's "hana" 3:40. ill get to figmas later.
portrait appears to become distorted 3:41 *implying cognitive dissonance betwixt reality and fiction as to the idea of women?*
>3:45 is very important. hana regurgitates into protag's mouth implying what?
for sake of discussion she is both beautiful but also not without her disgusting quirks perhaps that come with reality.
>3:57 some abstract melancholy stuff happens.
i believe our protag is experiencing a lucid ecstasy, realizing beauty and brutality of reality. (skulls and kaleidoscope space mang)
>4:04 standong on point. objective: codename "nipple"
perhaps its too much h-games for me but he apears to be on point and not too thrilled about it.
>416 eyeball can be deciphered as being watched but i think that its the protag gaze that looks toward 4:18's meme
implying he is humouring the idea of meme over hana. note: hana is seen crying before the eye's gaze on meme.
>4:22 shows a rift betwixt to worlds via the distorted portrait. reality vs fiction?
4:25 shows the perverbial cross in the road. hand top, meme bottom
>428 hana crying
protag doesn't like the confusing uncontrollable reality and responds to crying via normal hiki ways
being a dick and not loving her. he still doesn't like his girl crying but he doesn't know how to handle it. that's right guy, relationships aren't binary & simple.
>4:50 hand crying really is eating at him.
there seems to be two hanas here as well? perhaps first unmasked lilith, second is hana? suggests there's is a duality withing hana or at least protag's perception of hana.
>4:50 sparx protag's memory of hana being cute as fugggg.
the hanas submerge and sink away from protag's grasp! such suffering5:20! such transformation 5:29!
>5:35 doom time
protag loves the hanas! decides to burn all the memes. throughout this ordeal protag gets a flash of lilith and hana. @6:20 he feels hes losing her.
>6:31 do you WUB the hana?
hana on stage as the protag descends from behind the crowd of memes. hana takes centerstage as DJ. flashing lights can be seen as a eye ball with center on hana as memes make the foundation (from light eye's perspective) perhaps memes merely groomed protag for hana's love?
>6:50 cute hana absorbed by lilith. 6:52 Cute memories shatter and memes activate breast canons!
the great hana war commences
>6:30 Did he died?
due to fighting his inner demons for the most part he was ultimately disarmed *and dislegged*. He was fighting the founding immature idea of hana *or love interest*-(meme) for the reality's material and flawed hana-*of which he loved dearly*.
>7:35 he scurred
but hana/lilith-*perhaps at the time pure unadulterated, flawed, real hana* consoles his woes. also meme take place his arms and legs further convincing me of the ideas memes were a means to groom for this isolated individual's sense of love.
146 started with this same angle. fible goes west.
>anime causes unnecessary pain and its a tormenting rabbithole with no escape in sight.
i mean come on baby, why does it hurt but feel so good? some times love dont feel like it should... ugh...
hurt so good
>grotesquely invading the hiki's solitary dominion
This could be pretty significant when put in perspective. Thinking Shu was otaku from before he dated Hana, it makes sense for him to break up with her because he felt invaded, and never managed to make a real connection.
Talking from experience here.
>suggests there's is a duality withing hana or at least protag's perception of hana.
He probably hates HANA/Hana because while he liked her and blames himself for hurting, he blames her as well for not being perfect and making him end up like he did; this manifests as HANA, which is everything mean and sexual about her. During the video he tries to reach the good Hana, but it fails and his negative perception of her eats everything good.
>never managed to make a real connection. Talking from experience here.
we feel you bro. we feel ya.
>he blames her as well for not being perfect and making him end up like he did
i agree. he's having a collision of a finely tended-to perception of "the ideal woman" with the crude reality if women.
>this manifests as HANA, which is everything mean and sexual about her. During the video he tries to reach the good Hana, but it fails and his negative perception of her eats everything good.
this is true as well except >eats EVERYTHING good
what drives him to still fight the memes *literally shoot* to presumably get to good hana? foolhearty hope? or true love for the good bit of hana< thorns n all?
>he's having a collision of a finely tended-to perception of "the ideal woman" with the crude reality if women.
I'm not sure if it's exactly THE perfect woman, so much as only the good aspects of Hana. A mentality that rejects the negative is necessary in order to not go crazy when you live an anti-social, lonely life. So it was a relationship that was doomed from the start, because from the very beginning he couldn't have more than a surface relationship with her which would shatter the moment any problem arised.
>or true love for the good bit of hana< thorns n all?
I think he wants to take the good parts only, but the bad parts won't let him. If he accepted HANA rather than resisting, he could come to terms with what happened and move on.
I keep going back and re watching the first part over and over again.
I don't even mind.
Holy shit. I don't even like these type of musics.
>tfw I wasted 2 hours on Me!Me!Me overanalyzing every little part from the pictures to the cigarettes instead of just shutting up and fapping
or studying like I should actually be doing
I feel like you and i are agreeing on a spiritual core of this piece. I believe that's what makes this video so great.
Quality both visually and audibly aside this artistic and heartfelt roller-coaster does a good job of selling a capsule that has sufficient design but enough "void details" that leave it open to the interpretation of different types of reclusive individuals as pertaining to love conquests in contrast with moe culture.
The details may differ astronomically but the struggle remains the same. Connectivity or compatibility.
So basically what >>117384659 said.
I would like to disagree, if only because I don't like the idea of such an awesome piece of work having such a old-fashioned and conservative message.
I'm glad I'm capable of reflecting on my own past actions and the subconscious ideas that led to them, but it's really weird that it's brought up by a relatively simple short.
Is this what art is about, a way to discover oneself?
I belive, it's the most important part.
Glad for you, anon!
>Is this what art is about, a way to discover oneself?
maybe that's also what was happening in the short.
>Anno writes EVA
>has something like (for example) Rei who was meant to show that having a pure emotionless loyal waifu would be really fucking creepy and not good
>Rei becomes a national sex symbol instead
>stops caring and just enjoys the dosh
Can't help but be reminded of this:
"That’s the difference. Boys just do damage to your house that you can measure in dollars, like a hurricane. Girls, like, leave scars in your psyche that you find later, like a genocide or an atrocity. That’s the difference between boys and girls. And it becomes the difference between men and women, really. A man will, like, steal your car or burn your house down or beat the shit out of you, but a woman will ruin your fuckin’ life. Do you see the difference? Like, a man will cut your arm off and throw it in a river, but he’ll leave you as a human being intact. He won’t fuck with who you are. Women are nonviolent, but they will shit inside of your heart."
>Primary purpose of canine teeth is to hold the food in place and to pierce it or in some cases, pierce a prey's skin to kill it more efficiently
Too bad the sabertooth felines died to extinction. They would have been cool wild animals to observe.
Everyone has their opinions on the age old quandary of "the battle of the sexes" and what their roles and methods are but let me speak peace and save that endless pitfall for another day.
why is it that you believe this is about a man being victim to the women? (i'm not denouncing the idea, this IS art. to each his on interpretation)
Why settle it on such aggressive terms though the man is clearly reclusive? even if he was turned hiki from a venomous women why is she crying in his mind's eye and why does he fight so fervently?
Your "thoughtful discoveries" are stupid and embarrassing to watch.
I don't think he changed into a hikki from a venomous woman, rather he left her for some reason, regretted it, and now finds that she's changed into a different person from whom he knew before.
It's a common enough theme, Caroline No by The Beach Boys springs to mind.
I'm not a guy and I'm the anon who posted this reply.
Men are more likely to act on their distress through anger, physical violence and egotistical behavior. Women turn more manipulative and rely on psychological factors or peers to bring others down. It's just common fact, not to say that they men or women don't partake in both.
As for the short, it makes it pretty obvious that the guy was the asshole in their relationship, not the girl. He left the girl and his guilt has pent up in his mind to the point where it takes an evil manifestation of her. There's really nothing suggesting that the gf went yandere or NTRd him or anything.
>Something in her expression manages to exude both of those things at once to me, and I don't know how that's possible.
I'm going with the drool and crazy eyes, combined with a hime cut and stripes.
not sure is troll or $100, i'll bite.
what you are proclaiming to be null "thoughtful discoveries" is a no-contest argument.
let me break this down for you.
Thoughtful: of though; derived of conscious construct
Discovery: having found; locate or devise of existence
meaning if someone has found a thought provoking medium and discovered a thought they hadn't thought before then that would be a thought discovered ergo; thoughful discovery.
i mayhave talked in a circle briefly
>People talking about how it's scary to show a softer side because it gives other people things to hurt you with.
>Confirm what they think by doing just that.
i came here for booty. not the likes of you nor to humor you.
also for all those anno-haters this quality stuff pretty much shows he still got some kick.
>Anno is executive producer.
>Eva figurines in the short.
>Themes Anno has touched on.
Yeah, he didn't make it himself, but to say he's has absolutely no influence on it is ridiculous.
considering how much more production value this one had over the other 2 shorts khara put out, I bet he over funded it as soon he heard it would have an anti-otaku subplot in it
>AND FUCKING RED RIBBONS
webm of all time right here.
this so fucking much, I cant contain the cringe reading you crossboarder tumblr autists vomiting up walls of pseudointellectual or downright retarded texts about a few minute short.
Except this is wrong. He wanted her to come off as unsettling and schizoid. It was the fact that so many otaku latched onto her that sort of disgusted him, leading him to say that they just want a doll for a waifu.
Also Japan doesn't see her as a sex symbol, more like a mother figure than anything given that she's very popular with normalfags.
Why is the animation so fucking good?
You're everything wrong with /a/.
1. Idiot who becomes obsessed with something as shallow as piss on your driveway
2. Obsessed with it because lol bouncing tits
3. Somehow confused by the very simple message of the very short video
You should just kill yourself and make /a/ better.
Can anybody explain - what is the meaning of the AMV. Once and for all without speculation.
>Can someone form an acceptable opinion for me because I can't into literature/symbolism
There is no symbolism. The lyrics come out right and say everything that is happening.
There is nothing deep or complicated about this anime short.
You fucking retarded animals.
I'm sincerely mindblown.
all these speculation for this? there's seriously so much people browsing /a/ today at their first non-serial visual experience? what kind of music video get produced nowadays?or are they trying hard to justify something? its pretty straightforward, and any reasonable analisys was already been done for the third thread.
its a pretty close call, okay, but once you acknowledged this you're supposed to move on. its not a 26 episode series with multiple things to digest.
I sincerely don't understand.
Wait, fuck. Didn't see HANA under best ass.
That is not right anon.
