One Room is a four-minute, first-person perspective, single-speaker anime. It may eventually turn into a dating sim, or may get dark, or it may continue to be a string of monologues each week.
This week featured Hanasaka Yui, a girl who just moved into the apartment next to ‘us.’ She’s unremarkable but pleasant, and her gestures a subtle and varied. Along with the camera, that sort of wanders around each scene, and the broad color range, the show has an atmospheric feel.
It’s probably not worth your time, though, because ‘the viewer‘ is a characterless camera, who occasionally looks at Yui’s chest. ‘We‘ offer to tutor Yui, who wants to get into a good school, and coerce her into our bedroom for study, which all feels creepy. Yui’s body language seems to agree.
I don’t know about you, but I’m not interested in being projected into the body of a creeper, let alone a rapist…
