Yumekui Merry 7

by dm00

I find myself wondering why I am watching this show (good heavens, a beach episode). But then they do something like this:

Look at the reflections on his face

….and this:

The reflections on the faucet, yes, but if this were animated, you'd see the water flowing

….and this:

Oh, God, that background

….and at the other end of the episode….

….and I understand.

Mind you, Sunset Merry was preceded by the work of their C-team animators who animated the surf washing around (more like through) the feet of Merry and Yumeji, and it looked terrible. But someone was hard at work on beautiful imagery.

    It was definitely a very pretty episode.

    Though, it really gets egregious sometimes with such a high variance in quality from scene to scene….

    I still won’t forget the dramatic still from the last episode that was literally just a straight pen sketch

      Agreed that this is shaping out like a good series after a not-so-good start!

      I think the “straight pen sketch” reaction shot was a stylistic choice — I think I recall the same thing being done in Casshern Sins. It’s certainly striking enough. But that might just being a bit of my SHAFT fannishness spilling over onto this series.

      Even with the unsteadiness of the early episodes, they would have some visually stunning scenes.
