Sometimes, though very rarely, anime gets it right. I’ve tried to be careful not to include any spoilers below (and so am leaving out some things I’d include otherwise), but this sequence from Steins;gate episode 20 is one of those times when sound design, direction, editing and imagery combine to a perfect dramatic moment.
A visual haiku.
Well played, White Fox.
(Update: Title changed to “Grave of the Dragonflies” (Tomb of the Tombos?) — old associations have a tendency to leak out my fingers when I’m in thrall to enthusiasm for something I’ve just seen.)
