地下幻燈劇画 少女椿 | Shôjo tsubaki: Chika gentô gekiga

Hiroshi Harada Japan, 1992

kobaia's rating of the film Midori

Pobrecita Midori. Watched in 2013, when I was a fledgling dilettante for the most decrepit convergences of sex and violence. The animation presented some of the most lividly delicious images I have indulged in, and the persistent hope of the girl locked in an inconceivable nightmare of life despite recursive torture engulfed me in the moment of viewing.
