In/Spectre offers a few delighting moments this week as its plot thickens. Irina and I discuss the latest happenings in the case of Steel Lady Nanase.

via In/Spectre Episode 6 Review — 100 Word Anime

Karandi and I are enjoying the In/Spectre journey and it would be great to have you along! Like by following that link up there!

I,m also enjoying the look of the series quite a bit. I just realized that Kotoko is a bit like if Tanuya the Evil was cosplaying as Cardcaptor Sakura and I just realized that that’s all I have ever wanted!

I know I just said I like the look of In/Spectre and I did enjoy this episode but I took less screenshots than usual. Because as I looked over them, I realized that most of the episdoe was just the conversation between Saki, Kuro and Kotoko in the appartment and all the picture ended up looking very samey.

Silhouette creepy pasta was fun though.

I like that Nanase and her sister look only vaguely alike. You do see a family resemblance but they’re not identical. It annoys me when anime make family members look like clones of each other.

I’m always a little fascinated by watching anime characters smoke. I don’t know why. I guess because it’s a series of small gestures that requires an understated but precise animation. Ot maybe it’s just because I find animated smoke pretty.

InSpectre usually color codes the scenes green for Yokai but this time it went purple like it does for Steel Lady. It’s not as aggressively pink as it is when she’s actually onscreen but it’s still closer to her colour than the other Yokai colour. I guess her spirit is having some sort of influence over the place.

The flashback was in normal colours, the ride home was that InSpectre Yokai green for some reason. I guess there’s something supernatural in the air and the end tag was that distinctive Nanase fushia. In/Spectre doesn’t take too many risks with the visuals but they are creating a consistent athmosphere through this deliberate use of athmospheric colours.

  1. I love those long conversation. It is hard to make those long dialogues without making people bored. and this anime has the right balance to get into the voices caracteres more than in the illustration aesthetic.

Leave me a comment and make my day!
