violet evergarden – 07

this show speaks deeply to me… probably not because there is something in particular, but it’s done so well.

koi wa ameagari no you ni – 05-06

things i like about this show

1. the story-telling pace. it highlights the parts of life that are silent.

2. the art / animation attention to detail. it’s not “artsy” like 3-gatsu no lion or hai to gensou no grimgar, but it’s poignant and intentional.

3. the characters and interactions. the reservations and doubts are illustrated quite well, with the moments of silence.

Koi wa Ameagari no You ni 06a

one of the best “sweat running down one’s face” animations i’ve ever seen.
