remote-viewer's rating of the film Kemonozume

It's always odd to me how others see this show's slow explosion of wildness and strangeness as a fault. This is a story about a couple of forbidden lovers going off the rails, breaking free of their fate and running wild. The nervous, sketchy animation reflects their trepidation. As it becomes more psychedelic, like a feedback freakout outro jam, they become free. Kemonozume shatters '00s anime conventions.
