I'm still nowhere close to figuring this show out.
sit in a hole in her home, the birthplace of Gravekeepers. Or why that place is called "Story Circle" or why Gravekeepers seem to be born by the bushel from bolts of lightning striking giant crystals which stick up from the ground, or why living people in the Story Circle see visions of dead loved ones. Why can't I? Because Kaminai never bothers to tell me, that's why. Yet, somehow, the episode still sort of works because it manages to create a distinct mood in that surreal place, and to make the viewer (this one, anyway) feel immersed in that world. It doesn't work so much as a story, and in fact I'm not even sure it's a story at all. But it's interesting and manages to make an emotional connection, and with Kaminai it seems that's going to have to be enough.
