Kokka kimigayo (1931 IMDb)

Viewing

Seen in 2016.

Commentary

Largely uninteresting, even knowing the material it draws from. The only thing worth noting is how the supplicants outside Amaterasu's cave wear ancient Japanese garb.

Commentary

Digital Meme places the release in “1931 or 1932”. Pointless pink-tinted cut-out animation trying for an audience sing-along by printing lyrics. The extreme use of pink makes me think of it as the Me! Me! Me! (2014) of its time, but there is no depth here.
