He showed his mute justice by keeping silent.
8 May 2019 | by Aoi_kdrSee all my reviews

I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes

or should I ?

I really like the theme of this animation! All kinds of people were propagated by a thought of the laughing man unconsciously. And that started working in stand-alone mode like a computer virus. That is an exact social organization and shows us human phychology in collective.

He showed his mute justice by keeping silent.
