    Mei and Gabu crossing the mountain 
  • What if there was an inhospitable Desert on the other side of the mountain? Or perhaps a frozen Tundra? They really crossed it on an assumption.
    • Yes. All that confidence about there being a grassy forest on the other side was obviously them putting on, since they both knew they could be marching to their own deaths, but they had to risk it since it's not like they could go back...
  • I also have something with that scene. How long were there? It seems like months, or at least weeks. Where did they get their food and water?
    • They didnt, that's why they were both nearly dead by the end of the movie and why Mei offered himself up to Gabu.

    The subtext 
The front page compares part of the plot to be unable to have sex. Does that mean that Gabu eating animals is akin to cheating?
  • Um, a much simpler explanation would simply be that as an herbivore, Mei is simply bothered by the whole... killing to eat thing. Reading too much into the symbolism.

     Dub 
Wasn't there an official dub? I heard one was either made, or was being made, and broadcasted at festivals.
  • No, there was an unofficial dub and it might still be available on Youtube. The creators were trying to arrange for it to become more official, but TBS didn't go for it.
    • It's still on Youtube, but not on the same channel it was before.

     The girl sheep referenced in the fan-dub 
Wasn't that the pink girl sheep that hangs around Mei's brother?
  • Mii was just a female goat from Mei's clan. Tapper might have been Mei's brother/cousin, though it's a little vague.

     The abandoned barn 
Mei and Gabu took refuge in an "abandoned" barn, so would that mean that there are/were humans around on a cottage/farm nearby? Because, it just wouldn't make sense to build a barn in the middle of a forest...
  • Isn't Mei a domestic goat? Or at least a feral one?

     Gabu's amnesia 
When Gabu loses his memory he acts like a cruel, heartless jerk towards Mei. Is it because he doesn't even remember his own name (thus he's not "himself"), or does that mean that's how he always acted before befriending Mei?
