Juicy Hand-Shots #9: Dance In The Vampire Bund

Surprise hit. There wasn’t even that much pedo-fanservice as I feared. Oh and all these handshots. Especially Mina has really beautiful and delicate hands…

Juicy Hand-Shots #8-1: Earth Girl Arjuna (Episodes 1-4)

Rewatch after years. The series was surprisingly far more artsy than I had it in my memory. And surprisingly a lot of hand-shots at that. They aren’t even that detailed and elegantly drawns, but the gestures are really nicely put into scene~

Juicy Shots #2-b: Ao no Exorcist 1st. Opening (+Special)

Came around to watch that a while ago. Throught it was kind of rather boring overall.

Still, I just noticed again how much I liked the footage of the opening. It just has everything that I unexpectedly came to like about the series, very nice slapstick-comedy presented in dynamic and speedy scenes, a scene that calls for quiescence to contrast it, a quite nice landscape shot… and hand shots.
I quite like the fence scene, ever more than the offering hand one (which is rather clichéd).
I only wish I would like the song as well, but that just does not seem to be ever happening with Uverworld…

Juicy Hand-Shots #1-4: Mawaru Penguindrum (Episode 2-5)

I sort of endet up screenshoting anything with a hand (and more) in there… I ought to be more selective. But just anything in here is beautiful. *sigh*

Juicy Hand-Shots #7: Natsume Yuujinchou San (Episode 1)

That was a delicious surprise.

But then, Natsume comes from Brains Base as does Mawaru Penguindrum, perhaps not that much to be surprised about?

Anyway, nothing much a a artsy or complicatedly choreographed movement of the hand, but they were still so very elegant to look at~

Hand-Shots #6: Shouwa Monogatari

Not many have watched it completely I guess. It’s not even completely subbed yet.

This series did not really have much of any hand-shots put beautifully into scene (the only hand that gets spotlight would be the fist of the angry father, who, depending on one’s cultural upbringing, may almost get regarded as abusive), but they aren’t cowardly hidden away or that badly drawn.
Well, usually…

Juicy Hand-Shots #5: Blood-C (Episode 13)

For what it’s worth, Blood-C is indeed trashy and a waste of good animation. In fact, one could just skip everything save the last episodes (I really jumped there after episode 1) which has a really beautifully choreographed fighting scene and hopefully the movie will have even more of that (but hopefully with a bit less splatter…)
