There goes Kyoto Animation again. I’m surprised they’ve been working on a movie at the same time while making this episode. A freaking 47 minute episode, at that.
It was super subtle, but as Kumiko, Sapphire, and Hazuki were walking towards Reina, their standing angle was altered to fit the camera angle. Other people in various forums and social media have already pointed out several other scenes of sakuga I wish I noticed myself – one of them being the falling chalk. But really, the one thing that made me remember what I liked about Kumiko so much were the noises she makes. Several top tier squeaks out of her this episode already. I’m not sure if I can handle this season of Hibike.
Despite my body not being ready for many things this season, this episode spawned my absolutely favorite image of Kumiko, ever.
Thanks KyoAni. I think I can storm through the rest of the year without problems.
Oh yeah. I suppose I’ve got the itch again to write more. Sometimes I just completely forget I have a website, since I’m doing other things. Like playing video games.
