  1. Will you not be blogging 07 Ghost?

    Those images are really beautiful ^_^ It’s nice to see how anime has changed over the years. Things seem to have more detail now.


    • I have not seen 07 Ghost yet, but I heard it is quite popular🙂 I have many shows I want to blog about already – it will be very difficult to choose. I’ll check out 07 Ghost, but it is unlikely that I’ll blog about it unless the anime impresses me significantly.

      Indeed, new anime looks good, but, sometimes, it lacks warmth older shows used to have.


  2. Just watched 07-Ghost, it’s full of bishis with powers…. dark ones, a small one, questionable ones… bunch of em. ^^ I won’t be following it regularly, but worth at least 1 episode ^^


    • Hmm… bishis with powers… Have to check it out. The one I was interested in had white hair and looked like Ash😛


  3. Wow, so many good backgrounds. I like of the buildings in Ristorante Paradiso but I like the coloring in Anne. Arashi is not loosing out too bad either. Hanasakeru Seishounen easily have the blandest background. I’m guessing that’s due to a smaller budget.


    • Yes, plenty of good backgrounds this season🙂 Hanasakeru Seishounen backgrounds could have been better, but they are fine.


  4. Although a lot of this season’s anime have awesome background art, I think Shangri-la just takes the cake. Natsu no Arashi has some interesting angular shadows…!


    • Shangri La has an interesting view of green environment. However, one of the major consequences of global warming will be ice age rather than such proliferation of flora.

      Such polygons permeate almost every frame of the first episode of Natsu no Arashi, accentuating the issue of multiple dimensions and time travel🙂


  5. I particularly love the ‘Before Green Gables’ art as well as ‘Ristorante Paradiso’. (: Somehow those two stood out from the rest for me! I felt that the color mood was spot on with the story, as well as the atmosphere which really gives the piece that extra flavor.


    • Yes, those two are my favorites as well🙂
