'Pinched' is my favorite anime, without "one of"
23 June 2017 | by eversinerSee all my reviews

I really enjoy the style of lines in this animation. Hard and straight, just as the constant as the story line. A man fights against with his own guilt, maybe evil deep inside, or anything u call it. And finally, 'Love' beats evil. Quite old-fashion, no twists and lack of drama, even a little boring. I know all of these, but I still say, it is my favorite.

Why?

For it contains A Lot of details. Cop does not arrest thief, grabs his cash instead; Justice does not defeat evil, compromises instead. These meaningful moments is so precious to see in a 11 min "short" anime.

Of course, there is some other reasons that I would like to say in personal terms. Thieving is a skill while not a guilt, for this character.

And love is a faith while not a meditation. I believe so. Thank you for reading~

Oh, and why don't I give 10? The best is the next, isn't it?
