WTF, Japan?

The Kusarine Project has unleashed some amazing nightmare fuel into the world. Their recent effort recreates the opening screens and battles from several Pokemon games with human (we think) actors and low budget costumes and sets.

Such a task requires quite a bit of planning. Should they contact some after effects experts to add some nice special effects to the battles? Or perhaps involve some cosplayers with great costumes? Or how about making a slow-moving, 14-minute video with excruciatingly boring attention paid to intro screens? Or maybe they should fall back on being creepy and half-naked, throwing handfuls of flour to simulate explosions? They chose a combo of the last two and made a 14-minute mishmash of lumbering creepiness. It was super effective.
