A horror world depicted with pixilation animation. Characters do not appear, but giant “straw monsters” reminiscent of swarms of insects lurk in the gardens of dwellings with no people, occasionally attacking these houses suddenly like the pummeling of giant tidal waves. The tatami mats, walls, and floorboards are all destroyed… The peacefulness of traditional Japanese dwellings is contrasted with the violence of the monsters, and viewers are given a real sense of the fear of being attacked.
