Midori has to be the seediest, slimiest, grimiest anime ever made. No surprises there — it is, after all, from the twisted mind of Suehiro Maruo, king of guro manga. Sure, there's anime that is gorier and more sexually explicit, but none come close to the bleak tone of Midori. The animation is stilted, often it simply cuts between still images, but the artwork is fantastic. There are a few moments where animator Hiroshi Harada (who animated this by himself) goes all out. A particularly brilliant moment is when a crowd at a circus freak show are deformed by a furious dwarfed magician. Midori is a sick, sick film filled with rape, eyeball licking, and puppy murder. Proceed with caution.
