This is something that slips past the Western viewers- it looks like it’s reaching out for Chihiro, in a malicious way, to the Western viewers. It’s what I thought growing up.
However, now, that I know that it’s a way of signalling for someone to ‘Come here!’ in Japan, the scene takes on a whole new meaning.
That spirit knows that if Chihiro doesn’t eat the food, she will disappear. And it knows if it offers the food, she cannot be cursed as a gluttonous pig because it wouldn’t have been stolen.
Just a unique take when you have all of the context.
man… look at the p4 opening compared to the p4g one
THE PERSONA 4 GOLDEN OPENING MAKES ME SOOOO MAD BECAUSE 1. THE SONG HAS THE FUCKING HARMONICA ITS A GAME ABOUT MURDER AND THE OPENING SONG IS A HAPPY JINGLE WITH THE GOD DAMN HARMONICA 2. THEY ALL DANCE SO TERRIBLY??? RISE IS AN IDOL YOU WOULD THINK THAT SHE COULD DANCE BUT NO THEY ALL DO SOME FUCKED UP VERSION OF GANGNAM STYLE EXCEPT YOSUKE WHOS DANCING IN A FUCKING TRASHCAN
