Tortov Roddle is a man of few words on a journey through a calm and obscure new land, interacting with its inhabitants along the way. As he rides on his long-legged pig through the desert from town to town, he observes the interesting and quirky customs of the locals and reminisces about his past.

Some people love this arthouse show, but I honestly don’t get it and really dislike it. Luckily for me it was a short show so I was able to finish it! Unluckily for me I have to write a review about it criticising it for being something more than boring.
The purpose of arthouse anime is to express emotions and points in ways that cannot be done with other forms of entertainment. But can I honestly say this was arthouse? It didn’t have a unique style and from what I can remember it was just about a guy walking around in the desert.
I’m sure the whole thing was about loneliness and being unable to express yourself but it’s not interesting in this bland environment with a boring main character.
You can like it if you like it but I really don’t get it, I also can’t think of a recommendation for this show.
