Let's catwalk to the hallmark of Monogatari’s one-of-a-kind perversion—the intricately artsy, titillating poses, and visual kinks

Kamisama Kiss gave me the idea and opportunity to write a short discourse on what I think about the hierarchy that governs us, specifically the Great Chain of being, and the relationship between mythic creatures and humans.

I was fortunate that some folks in the aniblogosphere tagged me on this game. See my response to some of the questions asked by some fellow bloggers and my own set of questions to others.

I'm noticing that setting is one of the most underrated elements of an anime. Here's my attempt to explore the wonderful mazes of Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita

+Snippet Tee talks about architecture in Tari Tari.  I havent seen the show yet so I have nothing to go on it other than the screenshots, but I do appreciate the time it takes to create compelling background elements that work well with a story.  Makoto Shinkai, of course, is a great example of a detailed world background.

Not to diverge, but other shows like Madoka and Bakemonogatari achieve that aesthetic detail well in terms of presentations and the depth good backgrounding can give to a series.

I'm sure from an artistic point of view, the complete opposite can be true to, where the background is almost ignored to bring the characters completely to the forefront.  I know it's not quite the same, but the way Mawaru Penguindrum eliminated, or rather abstracted away, any non primary characters completely cut the distraction of other people from the story.

Small choices like that can certainly make a great positive impact... but it can equally make a completely negative impact.  For me, and don't ask me why I watched it, Mayo Chiki's inclusion of +Danny Choo's mascot Mirai in a few scenes utterly shifted way too much focus to an otherwise completely unimportant character.  It would have actually have been better to have the character somehow interact with the main crew rather than to be an intrusive background character.  Sometimes, these choices aren't careful enough of the rippling impact it can have on the scene, story, characters and even the brand outside of the context of the show.

Ok, rant done.
