Meteoroscape photography expressed the “Flat era”
Of course, the idea was based on the Japanimation “Kemono Friends 2” uproar. The “replica” has become a ship of Theseus so to speak, by changing the Director, Story, and Character, etc. The wave was too big for the sequel to the soft landing.
Here, the theme is Aso (Kyushu), which is considered to be the stage model of the animated film. It’s a bit of a fetish and abstract tendency to cut out the age, but these virtual cultures represent the era that attracts attention; there is one point.
One more thing I would like to add here is about the Aso(Kyushu).
People living in the metropolis are easy to forget that they living in suburban are suffered from the earthquake in 2016, and as of 2019 in fact, are still in a disaster area that cannot be called a complete reconstruction. And, there is a reality that it is in danger of disappearing as it is in the region which suffered from it while the population decreases. The stage of anime must have been one of hope. Nevertheless the turmoil in the capital circumstances has vanished the dream like a bubble. The uproar can be seen from such an angle, can’t it?
This sense of loss, “something is decided by someone out of reach”, should be described as “air of the times in Japan”. And I would like to shape this work to hold a pale hope in the change of the age, even if it is the start from the full flat.
By the way, the title is named after another Japanimation “Re: ゼロから始まる異世界生活”. Ten years from now, the trendy atmosphere of waiting for this different world life from scratch must also feel nostalgic.
