Inuyashiki: How to Masterfully Convey Unease

From a list of more than ten shows I'm watching in the Autumn/Fall 2017 season, Inuyashiki continually makes me think the more than any other. Now, that does not necessarily mean I think it is the best. But, often incitation of thought is what I'm searching for... maybe above all else. I believe that a [...]

Girls’ Last Tour: Developing Character

  On occasion, characters grab your imagination in the first few moments of you knowing them.

Aku no Hana (Flowers of Evil): Creating Atmosphere

I have never seen an anime like Aku no Hana, pretty much in every respect. There's something so singular about it - the way in which it presents itself on-screen. The beautiful real-world humanity that props up its characters. And, not to mention possibly the most noticeable thing, the use of the Rotoscpope animation style; [...]
