Nokoshi Susumu has worked previously in a top foreign financial company, but now, he is a 34-year-old homeless, unemployed man who lives in a car and hangs out aimlessly in a park in Shinjuku. One day, he meets Ito Manabu, a medical school student, who offers him 700,000 yen in exchange for volunteering to undergo an illegal surgical procedure known as trepanation. The procedure involves drilling a hole into the skull in an attempt to improve brain functions to the point of bringing out a person's sixth sense. After the operation, Susumu wakes up with a strange power that changes a human's appearance into a distorted manifestation when he closes his right eye and sees a person with his left eye. He then learns that the distorted appearance is a representation of people's subconscious minds and starts interacting with those people who possess a dark side.

From a non-manga reader

(no spoilers) Hearing that there was a lot lacking, I do feel that. Otherwise, the cinematography was gorgeous. The lighting hits a sweet spot. Ayano Go was great; I think this role definitely suits him.

The first half was great; it's pacing felt natural and I could easily follow the story. Second half felt a little strange. If I had to guess, this is where they cut a lot of original material.

(spoilers) The introduction and revelation about Nanako/Chihiro didn't have the impact that it should've, considering how important it is for our main character. And Manabu's past got covered within like the last 10 mins of the movie. This is something that you need to dedicate a whole episode for each character (ofc they couldn't do that). That's why adaptations are so tricky.

TW: Sexual assault

If it was possible to rate this any lower I would. I don't usually write reviews but there is a scene in this that is seriously messed up. Main character rapes a high school girl. It's not even a scene that's included for some societal message or to condemn the main character. He just does it. If anything, him raping her is portrayed as him doing her a favour since she's a virgin and doesn't want to be one. The scene is not only gross but includes lots of blood. It's totally fucked up.
