It’d be lovely if Studio Daume could return to the franchise, but it seems that most of their talent has fled elsewhere. Daume hasn’t really done anything notable since the two ICHIGO MASHIMARO OVA series or whatever that SHIKI thing is.

- Usagi no Kimochi MV Utterly Incomprehensible:
The screencap (and Youtube preview image) “Annoying Orange” mouth and eyes on those thumbs (?) dressed up as girls ensures I will not ever watch the video contained therein. I hate, hate, hate disembodied live action eyes and mouth.
- Gakkou Gurashi = Moe + Zombies:
I think it’s more like a fugue state. Yuki knows the truth deep down, she just chooses to not acknowledge it. It’s a survival mechanism in extreme situations.
