Summer's Puke is Winter's Delight (Sawako Kabuki, 2016) :imdb: :letbxd:

Length: 2 minutes 59 seconds

Anorexia or rounds of eating, puking and having sex: a priori not the most engaging theme for an anime but the psychedelic pictures, catchy music and somehow true-to-life telling make this highly watchable.

Yesterday's 8 pints and a domino's pizza in my stomach just burbled a little.

I like the intensifying, accelerating pace of the short. The protagonist has more sexual encounters, pukes more and loses weight faster, converging towards a chronic state of delirium, chaos, the feeling of not being in control of ones actions and being submitted to something vile.

whom shall we find
Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?


Well here he is skidded out onto the Zone like a planchette on a Ouija board, and what shows up inside the empty circle in his brain might string together into a message, might not, he'll just have to see.

Nur dein Auge – ungeheuer / Blickt michs an, Unendlichkeit!
