Oni-Gokko (Tag) on it's surface is a story about guilt and grief. A young woman cannot bear the pain of how her friend Miki died. Miki is portrayed by the almost impossibly thin Eri Akita. She's otherworldly and conveys a look of almost a meat covered skeleton, yet manages not to appear anorexic.
This piece has fantastic lighting, editing, and acting. The characters truly convey the emotions at hand, even across cultural and language barriers. Shane Ryan has nearly created a moving piece of Ukiyo-e art here. It falls under horror, but there is great beauty here. Well worth a watch.
