id like to let you know that ive learned more from your transformers videos than i ever have about film construction. after watching your latest videos on ive started playing attention to how things are shot in movies. ive started playing attention to how long a shot is or how it moves. obvs im no expert but it does give me some appreciate for why i like some scene and amazement at why i hate others. thanks internet mom
I am glad to hear that, as that was my hope people would take away from the series. You’re welcome, internet son.
my babes (Alexis’ shadow team) is so close now and they even have a lively chatroom!!!! I’m so glad they’re being good to me
I know I should probably feel bad about Nayuki being left behind but honestly… honestly he’s been pretty non-important to me for a while??? also being jealous about Ageha… huh…. i hate this plot line
I feel kinda worse for my bratty child Ugawa. I don’t know what’s happening
Tengenji and Kuga are so protective of Nayuki though, awww. I love.
Inumine is A GIFT.
SURPRISE!!!!! A NAYUKUGA SCENE??? AMAZING???? I AM SO SHOCKED. THIS IS THE BEST
oh no more scenes showing us Hoshitani-as-Lambert
awww Team Hiiragi is so tender with their tinyest child. I love them.
All the group chats are great!!! I love all the teams!!!
Hahahaha Eigo ;; He posted it in THEIR chatroom??? I thought he was supposed to be the smart one. God, that’s adorable.
Ugawa :((((( my poor boy. You deserve the role tbh. You’re perfect for Percy. You’ve always been perfect for that role.
“Kuga-kun is ALWAYS calm and cool (even outside the stage)” nice ; )
A CHIBI DUET!!!! Awww this is so cute
I can’t believe Ugawa is actually anime Chinen Yuuri
“Why do I feel like I’ve been dumped?” Hachiya GETS IT (Hoshitani u heartbreaker, u homewrecker)
Kuga loves Nayuki(’s food), it’s canon??? fight me
THE UGAWA x NAYUKI IS SO GOOD!!!!!
Nayuki finally gave Hoshitani his treasure :D
UGAWA GOT THE ROLE!!!!!! UGAWA GOT THE GODDAMN ROLE!!!!! Oh my gosh my dream team is happening??? Tengenji-Kuga-Kaito!!!! With Ugawa!!!! (low-key I felt bad for Eigo because he deserves so much good. And also Tatsumi got sad for him, which affect me deeply ok)
TATSUMI GOT THE ROLE!!!! WHO EVEN EXPECTED THIS BEAUTIFUL TWIST!!!! He’s so beautiful and perfect, my sunshine prince
oh my god this is everything I’ve ever dreamed of!!!!
I was so against Hoshitani as Lambert but if Hiiragi is being sent to broadway to a bigger stage, I’m actually fine??? This would give the twins lots of dramatic moments next episodes. Hiiragi would be Cinderella. He’ll be with Haruto-senpai! This is all very exciting to me. Continue surprising me, you beautiful musical show you
We all know how amazing the 'why' scene is. But what really gets me is the way Quinn says 'Carrie' at the beginning of that scene. He says it like she is the only person in the world he wants to see right then and it makes everything that follows feel so right and beautiful. Is there a GIF of that?
I know all I can do right now is talk about the Renora scene on the airship but can we please talk about the renora scene on the airship? But most importantly..REN’S EXPRESSIONS.
When he first looks at her, he looks a little unsure but then his face gradually turns into a soft expression.
It’s like Ren made the realization that he loves Nora (although, he probably realized that earlier when Nora pushed him under the building…or earlier than that but it’s now more apparent that the Grimm that killed his parents is dead and that’s A LOT off his shoulders and mind).
AND THEN HE STARTS MOVING HIS HAND TO HOLD HER HAND AND UGH THIS SCREENCAP DOESN’T DO ENOUGH TO CAPTURE HIS GROWING SMILE. ONE MILLION BLESSINGS TO THE ANIMATION TEAM FOR SAYING SO MUCH WITH JUST THE TINIEST LITTLE MOVEMENTS OF HIS FACE.
NORA’S INITIAL REACTION IS SO PURE AND CUTE AND EVERYTHING I EVER NEEDED. (And Ren’s face is just…wow…have you ever seen him more serene with the world because I haven’t)
And then Ren puts his hand on-top of Nora’s and Nora holds up his hand and I can just see her examining it like “he really put his hand on my hand”. The way they readjust their hands just kills me in the best way.
NORA’S EXPR/ESSION HERE IS EVEN PURER THAN THAT LAST ONE AND IT JUST SCREAMS “REALLY?”. Like, she’s looking at him to make sure what’s happening is really happening…that he might have the same feelings for her that she’s felt for him for so many years.
AND HE JUST CONFIRMS EVERYTHING SHE’S THINKING (AND HE /KNOWS/ SHE’S THINKING) BY GIVING A LITTLE NOD/CLOSING HIS EYES.
THAT LOOK RIGHT THERE I WILL TALK ABOUT THIS LOOK ALL DAMN DAY, WEEK, YEAR, AND CENTURY. THAT IS LOOK IS LOVE.
I thought this entire scene did an amazing job of developing their relationship and taking it beyond being close friends/crushes with just the smallest details in the animation. A kiss would have amazing and gladly accepted, but I thought their expressions and body language did soooo much more than what a kiss could have done here (besides, there’s plenty more time for kisses in the next volume ;)).
Context: Upon finding out that Taryon hasn’t bothered to learn the names of most of his new traveling companions, Pike recruits Tary’s mechanical assistant Doty to immediately sketch some portraits. Of course, Doty takes the request very literally and decides to sketch everyone while they’re in bed. Many of them are not in bed alone.
Yuri on Ice interview translation - PASH! 2017/05 (p24-25)
I am pleased to bring you the very first interview with director Sayo Yamamoto!!! You don’t know how much I’ve been waiting for this… This one is pretty general because of course she has never been interviewed before so they are asking her the basics, but it’s very interesting to finally hear things from her perspective too, since she’s the one who started it all. More interviews with her will be appearing in other magazines in the near future, I’m looking forward to those ones too.
Also, I believe a bright future is to be expected for Yuri on Ice, since she seems to have lots of plans…!! (I was shivering typing out the translation, lol)
Translation is under the cut.

Interview (first appearance in media!) The world of “Yuri on Ice” that director Yamamoto wanted to create With 8 notebooks full of notes in one hand, director Sayo Yamamoto has answered our interview for the first time. We have asked her how this new animation that no one had ever seen before was born.
I’m bitter AND sticky so let’s get gooey on topic!
People just? forgot that ton of season 3 episode’s visuals are actually amazing? I mean it could be just me but this season clearly trowed a ton of budget into some scenes an episodes!
Super Watermelon Island got an amazing fluid fight scene between two giant women and it was as energetic as it sounds
Gem drill, even tho it was pretty chilly on animation, had ton of detail on Steven’s faces, I find it like such a sweet detail having in mind the episode was focusing a ton on Steven and his connection with the cluster
(this is my personal favorite)
Hit the diamond had a TON of characters on-screen at the same time, having in mind 5 of them where new characters and they had to design new clothing for 5 of them
Even though my favorite part of this episode is the bond between Amethyst and Peridot, I think Too Short To Ride was pretty consistent, I am in love every time they put little lines under the eyes of the characters because it usually helps to remark the emotion they are feeling, is personal.
Stevonnie’s back for Beach City Drift and the thing I like the most about this episode is the backgrounds and the color choices, they are AMAZING and pretty relaxing to watch on their own.
Monster reunion was pretty harsh to see for me because painful scenes (aka scenes where the character is clearly in pain) make me feel incredibly bad, but I again shot out how they draw emotions and the subtle lines that make it all even better.
More than for animation itself, I praise a lot Alone At Sea because of writing and atmosphere, and the last one really works, I felt incredibly… tense, when Jasper showed up, how she acted and the way she expressed herself, and how the colors got dark and the rain around it… just gosh
Even tho it was a pretty okay-o episode in general, I really liked Gem Hunt’s backgrounds, the whites and cold tones made a good mix with Jasper’s colors and really helped her to pop out!
I’ve talked a lot about Bismuth, so at this point everything would feel redundant, so I’ll just say that the first and last scenes have pretty good colors, one being calm pastel tones and the other reddish dark tones #BRINGHERBACK2K17
And finally, Bubbled, which has some on the most beautiful space backgrounds i’ve seen in an animation product, is the feeling of emptiness that makes the most of the episode personally, how is literally just Steven and Eyeball and Eyeball pretty much tries to kill him, in other situations you can think about something going on, but is the fact that they are in space what makes it feel… well… empty, giving more focus to the characters that contrast the most in a sea of dark cold tones and blacks!
[About shooting his favorite scene in True Detective] The scene of beating up the kid’s dad. It was just so sleazy and so f—ing wrong and yet it’s something that various parents have dreamed of, no doubt. That was an amazing scene.
