Our Review : I saw there were no reviews on ‘Devour Dinner’ and since it deserves one I figured my first review would be dedicated to it. ☆ﾐ(o*･ω･)ﾉ
I can guarantee you have never seen anything quite like DD, and you won’t have to invest much time into this vivacious anime either, [as it’s only 10 minutes] but this abstract short will definitely add some diversity to your collection.
The concept is simple-cell and bacteria-like animals eating each other.
What really makes it interesting is the structured, almost-hypnotic art style; it’s very surreal, and the microscopic monsters we encounter are full of mysterious whimsy, much, much more than you would expect from creatures we can’t even see with our naked eyes.
The other attribute I think worth mentioning are the creative sound effects which really bring the strange bewitchery of this anime home. Some of the corpuscles sound like UFO’s, ray guns, sputtering coffee pots, sticky shoes, whining doors, candy dispensers, and even like a crowded room of people!
Actually, maybe I imagined that last one. I mean, there’s no way microorganisms could be THAT much like us…right?~
