WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!
In Portuguese, SAUDADE means nostalgia, grief, or longing. Thinking wistfully of one's distant home or of loved ones far away, or yearning for a youth that can never be recaptured. Sorrow, agony, bitterness, love, beauty, radiance. Sometimes a sharp pain within one's heart. Sometimes one should aim at the light that will lead one into the future.
In the outskirts of this world, surrounded by strangers, a lone man feels SAUDADE.
These mindscapes blend with elements of poetic scenery, and singing and dancing to a variety of music, to display the charm of Sena Jun: the noble-mindedness of proud solitude, tender kindness, and sometimes a brief glimpse of forlorn fragility, in contrast to which her vigorous strength and dynamism overflows even more vividly.
Any other interesting or important stuff.
