Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei

Synopsis: A night of autumn, in a mysterious ramen, behind Shimogamo Sanctuary, a solitary university student of the third year bumps into a man with a eggplant head that calls a god of marriage. Knowing this man makes the student reflect on his last two years in college-dois years spend bitterly trying to break couples on campus with his only friend Ozu, a macabre-looking man who apparently proposed to make his life as unhappy as possible. Solving to make the most of the rest of his university life, the student tries to ask the non-sociable but kind, Akashi, but cannot move on, leading him to regret not living his university life differently. As soon as this thought goes through his head, he is overthrown with time and space for the beginning of his years in college and has another chance to live his life.

Surreal, artistic and hallucinating, Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei narrates the misadventures of a young man on a journey to make friends, find love and experience the life of the pink campus he always dreamed.
