X was the real YIt turns out that Mima is the real Mima.

Perfect oversells this but I enjoyed it.

I hadn't seen this in a about a decade and apparently had mixed up a bunch with Millenium Actress. I feel like animation is underrated for horror. This movie would be way less effective live-action (and the already-hard-to-watch assault scene would be even worse).

Also, what a wonderful time when you could just not know about the internet.
