Keep Your Hands of Eizouken! is proving to be one of those irresistibly fun anime that just leave you smiling. Honestly watching the three girls starting their own not-anime club and watching them get excited and bounce between b colour in these opening scenes. It’s sort of relaxing.
I’m still playing with the format of my gallery posts and I’m also really late this week so I’m going to try something new. If you want to read what Karandi and I thought of Episode 2 of Eizouken, please click the link above. It would make me happy!
And here are all the pictures!
You know, while I was watching this episode, I didn’t realize how blue it was in the opening sequence. And it’s a bright turquoisey blue, like the inside of a pool! When you add in the dark blue blazers and the blueish purple hallways and that a really impressive palette dominance. I’m not really sure what it means but it’s striking!
As soon as we get out of the school however, the shift is immediate. Sure there is still a lot of blue tonality but it’s more subdued, darker and with a lot more grey to it. It looks more dynamic and and for a reason I can’t quite explain it fills me with a sense of urgency.
The streaming light is quite nice in these scenes. Most of this part took place in generally dark rooms with bright spots of light, like a movie theatre! Aside from the ambience it also gives a scenes of dimension to the images. It creates a nice depth and defines the enclosed space much better. This comes into play particularly well when contrasted with the wide open spaces of the animated world!
Speaking of the sketch world! I love it so much. Not only is it so wide, it’s purposely bright white, like a pieces of paper. I think these make for beautiful screencaps but it’s nothing compared to how wonderful the animation is in these sequences. A little dizzying at times but also mesmerizing!
