When I first saw this animation, I didn’t think it is created by a Japanese. For me, the style of the illustration is more like European style. Compare all Japanese visual culture I introduced in this website (such as Stain in the Junk Street, ゴン (GON), and Usavich), I think the stereotype of Japanese visual culture in my mind is changing and fading.
