Arashi no Yoru ni/Headscratchers
Mei and Gabu crossing the mountain
- What if there was an inhospitable Desert on the other side of the mountain? Or perhaps a frozen Tundra? They really crossed it on an assumption.
- Yes. All that confidence about there being a grassy forest on the other side was obviously them putting on, since they both knew they could be marching to their own deaths, but they had to risk it since it's not like they could go back...
- I also have something with that scene. How long were there? It seems like months, or at least weeks. Where did they get their food and water?
- They didnt, that's why they were both nearly dead by the end of the movie and why Mei offered himself up to Gabu.
The front page compares part of the plot to be unable to have sex. Does that mean that Gabu eating animals is akin to cheating?
- Um, a much simpler explanation would simply be that as an herbivore, Mei is simply bothered by the whole... killing to eat thing. Reading too much into the symbolism.
Wasn't there an official dub? I heard one was either made, or was being made, and broadcasted at festivals.
- No, there was an unofficial dub and it might still be available on Youtube. The creators were trying to arrange for it to become more official, but TBS didn't go for it.
The girl sheep referenced in the fan-dub
Wasn't that the pink girl sheep that hangs around Mei's brother?
- Mii was just a female goat from Mei's clan. Tapper might have been Mei's brother/cousin, though it's a little vague.
