this show… is heavy, strangely nostalgic, pulsating strongly, contradictorily, … heavily.
ah the original manga is by 羽海野 チカ, who also did Honey & Clover, one of my absolute favorites.
directed by 新房 昭之 who did Petit Cossette, MagoMagi, Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha, and Bakemonogatari (… which i still havn’t watched)
what a powerhouse combo.
character design by Nobuhiro Sugiyama (who also did.. Ef ! and others)
the art is beautiful… and heavy.
the characters are… beautiful… and heavy.
i feel at home… with this heaviness.
(i think i finally took the next step in anime… and started to look at the staff involved… thanks to Shirobako !)
