ugh i just love the animation in this scene

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 ;)). 

Am I the only one obsessed with how the ML Staff took time to animate Chat Noir’s breathing? I mean, they could’ve thought, “Oyeah, everyone’s focusing on Marinette in this scene, even Chat Noir himself, so let’s just have HER move, and maybe throw in a few blinks for Chat Noir and call it a day.“

BUT NO. THEY MADE HIM BREATHE.

Okay, so they actually do make people breathe all the time, but I think I especially noticed it in this scene because you can see his whole torso for more than one second, and the breathing looks so natural and UGH I just love the attention to detail.

I think the most tragic thing about ‘Smurfs: the Lost Village’ is that MOST of the movie is good. The animation is beautiful, I enjoy the characters, and the story is overall good. But there are TWO scenes in the movie that are so cringe worthy that it honestly breaks the movie for me quite a lot. The first bit was the sudden ‘I’m Blue da ba de’ montage– good joke, but the tone just doesn’t match the smurfs. The second was the dance off at the end. And not even because ‘UGH, not a dance off’. I loved the big dance ending of Megamind… and most Dreamworks movies, actually. But this was the moment I checked the timer to see how much more was left. This was the moment that dragged on, and made the movie feel so long. Especially after everything had already been wrapped up.

The rest of the movie though, totally worth watching. Just those bits hit you so hard it can take you out of the experience.

Anyone else remember Zakk Tomorrow s3 e31 where Zakk gets seperated from the group with his little ball friend (blanking on the name and I can’t find anything anywhere :/)? 

God, I loved that episode. It showed how much Zakk has grown and how much he is capable of, as well as how important Alexa and Adam are to him. 

Also, the waterfall scene??? The animation was absolutely GORGEOUS! The color direction for when they went inside and all the emotions…ugh. 

Just, Zakk Tomorrow guys. What I wouldn’t give to see it again.

Since I replayed it today…

I have to say, my favorite part of the dance scene? Isn’t actually the dance. Don’t get me wrong, I love the dance. But what I love more is this particular exchange of touches. He puts his hand on her shoulder; she reaches up and touches his hand. (That is goes along with the “I know it’s foolish, but I was worried for you tonight” line is just icing. He worries without trying to stop her doing her job and she reassures him with a touch. Ugh. It’s where I live.)

It’s such a little throwaway gesture, but there’s such ease to it. I actually went through all the other romance scenes on YouTube to see if the same animation was just replicated from person to person? And it isn’t. They’re the only ones who have the little trade-off and exchange of casual touches. (Though Josephine and Sera also put their hand on the Inquisitor’s shoulder. But the Inquisitor doesn’t reach up like this, unless it’s a bit that’s cut and you could possibly see it with flycam.)

So yeah. Cullen+Inquisitor+reassuring/comforting touches=OTP STATUS RECOGNIZED.
