Good morning giantess fans,
As promised last Friday, today we’re going to cover something from Japan, a video produced by Studio Yamato. I thought I had already covered something from Studio Yamato, but apparently that was not the case! So, it’s high time to rectify that oversight. Let’s now examine “MEGA 28b” starring Shizuka. MEGA 28b is a 21-minute long video that sells for 5,000 Yen as of early November 2022.
The action begins with Shizula wearing a string bikini, as seen below, and lazily moving around. There isn’t a story per se. There was no audible dialogue or narrative in text form. (NOTE: Technically, there were transition slides saying “BIGGER,” but that was it.) Whether or not Shizuka was always this tall or somehow became this big was never explained. Instead, instrumental music played in the background while the performer posed in slow-motion.
Shizuka was also shown at larger sizes.
Instead of royalty free background music, this sequence featured a lot of rumbling sound effects as she shifted her body from one position to another.
The chroma keying (a.k.a. green or blue screen effect) was done well. There wasn’t the clipping, feathered edges, or pixelation found in other amateur productions.
Special attention should be given to the outstanding model buildings. The addition of numerous signs on those buildings contributed to the verisimilitude. (NOTE: I’ve wanted to use that word for awhile!) That just means those advertisements added to the set’s appearance of being true or real. Several, maybe all, of those small signs were copies of real business signs commonly seen in Japan. For example, アイフル (AIFUL) is a consumer finance company. Other references included the Marui department store with “OIOI” on it, 7-Eleven (an American convenience store chain which is licensed in Japan by Seven & i Holdings), 歯科クリニック (a dental clinic), 焼肉屋さかい (yakiniku restaurant Sakai), etc.
It’s understandable if small creators don’t want to include real business signs in their fictional works due to fear of being sued. A small creator with limited financial assets could be intimidated by the threat of legal action from large faceless corporations with enormous financial assets who object to the inclusion of their trademarked names. Artists could use parody brand names such as “MacBobolds” or “StareBocks” to alleviate that concern, Furthermore, in the United States, the First Amendment’s right to free speech protects parody. That doesn’t mean that corporations won’t sue. Corporations can sue someone for nearly any reason, but that doesn’t mean that they will win. We should still mock, parody, and reference them.
Overall, MEGA 28b had impressively detailed sets, enjoyable sound effects, and good visual SFX. Thus, this clip is recommended for giantess fans. The ¥5,000 (about $34.06 at time of writing) price tag may seem prohibitive, but on the plus side the Yen is relatively weak this year. Between 2016 and 2021, 1 dollar was worth between 99 and 115 Yen. However, 1 dollar is worth 146 Yen as of November 8th, 2022. So, this is a good time for foreigners to buy Japanese goods.
That’s it for today folks. Next week’s review will also cover something from Japan. Until then, keep growing!
