Whoever worked on episode 29 of Soul Eater must have one hell of a foot fetish, because you don’t focus three times on such lovely feet shots, and two of them have toe moving action.

It seems that Madhouse are on a role this season. They’re giving everything they’ve got to each show, and that especially goes for Kurozuka.

Checking out the summary on ANN, and you’ll know the basic story for the series. The first episode covers what’s said, setting us up perfectly for what we’re going to see in the next 11 episodes. Just reading the summary back before this show aired, and i knew it would be something i’d enjoy, though more then anything i wanted to see what Madhouse and the director, Tetsuro Araki could do with the show. The production quality is so damn high you’ll have to see it to believe it. The backgrounds, character models — all of it are outstanding to see, and that carries on in the second episode. I have faith that Madhouse will keep this level up until the end, like they have done in past productions. As for the Tetsuro Araki touch, so far he’s following manga material at a decent pace, though some parts of the manga are going to be cut out. The manga is 10 volumes long, and seeing how the first two introduction episodes weren’t necessarily rushed, he’ll keep at this pace until the end. Just like in Death Note (another Madhouse production Tetsuro directed), we see a vibrant display of colors used, in this case for the action scenes (episode two).

It adds that extra layer needed to fully experience the madness that’s being shown during this fight scene. I do hope Tetsuro keeps this up for the rest of the action scenes in the series. While on this subject, there’s a lot of gore, though you’re to focused on the solid movement’s surrounding by the beautiful animation that you just don’t notice it all. Something i was quite surprised about was the musical score. It’s done by Kiyoshi Yoshida, the guy who worked on the scores for Kaiba and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time — two scores i like quite a bit, though not at all did i think he was the composer while watching the first episode. It’s true that the two scores that i mentioned just now are extremely different from one another, and yet again here with Kurozuka it goes to show how open a composer can be with their works.

Last but not least, the stunning Paku Romi (my favorite seiyuu) voices the main female character, Kuromitsu. The mysterious yet loving voice we’ve heard from her in the past has returned, and it fits perfectly. I’m not going to lie, if even i disliked this show i’d carry on watching for her alone.

I can see this being the underdog of the season. Already it’s not receiving the amount of attention it deserves, though we all know it happens to a lot of the best shows that we rank pretty high. I’d recommend this to just about anyone who enjoys high levels of animation, because you’ll be very pleased with the job done here.

This week we’re gonna have a young foot.

https://i2.wp.com/img521.imageshack.us/img521/3457/meifootae3.jpg

Mei’s lovely little feet from CLANNAD ~After Story~, third episode. This episode had some pretty special Mei scenes aimed at a certain kind of person, so what better way to add to that then adding a lovely shot of her playing around with her feet. Playing with dirt can be so adorable.

& seriously before you start thinking it again, this is not a 100% foot blog. I’ll write something else soon.

I’m a bit late, though over the next few days i plan to say a few of my thoughts on shows from the new season. First up is Casshern Sins.

https://i1.wp.com/img95.imageshack.us/img95/4667/01zz9.jpg

This is seriously my kind of show. I’ve always been interested with the franchise, checking out the original 1973 series a while back (i’ll get back to it at some point), and since then i’ve checked out the OAV and live action movie, so with that amount of Casshern knowledge in mind, i was quite surprised that Casshern Sins has changed the story quite a lot. You could say the only connection the new show has with the original is the characters, though this amount of change doesn’t necessarily mean bad things.

All we’re told in the first episode is that the earth is in a slow descent of annihilation, and the reason behind that is being pointed at Casshern for killing a young girl named Luna. Of course everything surrounding that reason is covered in mysterious (Casshern not remembering anything plays a huge part in that), though for now that’s the basic plot set out. The absolute stunning animation captures the lonely setting perfectly, along with the very powerful score by Kaoru Wada — personally one of my favorite composers. As the show progresses we’re sure to experience more of the lonely factor that plays a huge part in the story. That’s probably what we’ll keep seeing as the mystery surrounding Casshern and the state of earth start to unravel bit by bit, and i can say i’m looking very much forward to it. This is easily one of my favorite shows from the new season — a show i believe everyone should at least give a try.

I’m gonna be nice this week and show off two pairs of feet. It wasn’t my original plan, though we all have the first Ikkitousen: Great Guardians DVD special to thank for that.

https://i2.wp.com/img129.imageshack.us/img129/977/01yt6.jpg

First we have Lenalee, from D.Gray-man, episode 103. She’s been running around bare-footed for quite sometime now (happy Shiro alert), which has made me quite happy. I could probably do 20 of these posts just using her feet. There was quite a nice shot of her running in this episode, though it didn’t really come out well in screenshots. Shame i suck at making gifs, because it would have been wonderful.

Special bonus feet this week belong to Hakufu.

Just what you’d expect to see from a Ikkitousen production. I’d say a bit more, though i think i’d be banned from wordpress — and yes that is my poor attempt at blocking out a nipple shot.

Some shows ended over the past few days, so i’ll probably talk about them over the next few days, so don’t worry this isn’t just a foot blog.
