It was good as the work which drew the psychology of youth while regression the time from present. Before the spread of the mobile phone (PHS), before the advent of the Internet (1995 is said to be the first year of the internet in Japan), before the Parrot incident (in 1995 the semblance of a Japan society was debunked) story.
I had felt that rawness was lacking in a certain kind of image in recent years (the image here includes the AV in the adult meaning), and there was rawness in the image of ‘ Rivers edge ‘.There were no digital or Photoshop or photogenic that were drawn earlier rawness.Raw communication.I feel alive.
It is said that the Eighties was a time of the brooding.”Somehow, crystal”, post-modern, MTV. But in the 1990s, social changed a lot.The myth and structure of the consumer society, the mandala of the social system, and the torn of destructive people’s raw emotions (a tingling feeling that life and death were adjacent) overflowed.
At that time it was less clean than it was today.The river stinks, the days of cigarettes littering and throwing cans into the river.The age when pollution and the destruction of the ozone layer were talked about as a problem.It was such an age.(Although the present may actually be more serious.The year of the grunge (dingy) scene, Kurt Cobain died.In 1994.
This drama is drawn by young people of that age.Bare raw greed, raw anxiety.Young people’s sex is also made how to draw different from now.There is no such thing as XVIDEOS.No desire exposure through the net.Eros integrated with Thanatos.Of course, contraception is not.Raw sexual experience.
Do you feel alive?The interviewer was asked to answer the main character.”If anything, I’m not alive.All the characters are living Uzuraya.To live is to have sex, to eat, to love and to live. Bullying, sexual minorities, eating disorders, family discord, unreachable love.
The situation of literally raw communication, tingling relationships, scratching the person feeling the wound creates trouble. Through it, some die, some survive, some change places, some remain. Of course, everyone can avoid it and the scar remains.
But the times have changed.24 years from the time the drama was set.About a quarter of a century passed.The situation has changed. Even the young person does not know whether to live by a tingling sense as of those days.
However, the desire to love and to be loved and to live is not changed even now.Even if it is easily connected to digital.
Although, the net culture and virtual values that evolved since the spread of the Internet.For example, various systems on the net and the idle group on the platform to collect many approvals.It will be now that the deception and the mental emptiness of the system are uncovered and revealed.
The era of this work ended one paradigm in 1995. After that, it was a time when a mobile phone and a net, and some kind of relativism and liberal to minorities became popular.At the same time, philosophy and spirituality die, and it is an age when sociology and statistical thinking universalization. By the way, the paradigm until 1995 of this work began in 1972. The end of the end of the big story, the end of the post-modern paradigm was in 1995. 23 years in 1972.
The paradigm up to 1972 would be the paradigm of reconstruction and high growth from the Korean War in 1950. and 23 years have passed since 1995.
However, I thought again that the understanding of sexual minorities (perhaps over the past few years) has changed considerably in the last quarter century.
The hero, Nikaido, is a gay boy Yamada.Who can you put in?Do you paint lotion or something?When you ask, “which do you like to be licked by the clitoris and put in your finger?It is rude to ask sex because it is gay.The scene was made to be seen and returned.
Apart from that, it was hot as a video, the scene of the hero Fumino Nikaido boyfriend is cheating opponent over there and put a can of moose for hairstyles.The sound of the theater is so dry. Seriously?I’m glad that Don Quixote and the adult corner are popular. But seriously.I wonder.
