Ducks In Anime: Art School Called


-Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb Ep07

I'm noting a distinct whiff of "artsy-fartsy" coming from HSxH these days.  I can hear you now: "Wonderduck," you say, "it's an anime about students at an art school... what did you expect?"  And you're right, of course.  You then continue, "Plus, it's animated by SHAFT, the reigning monarchs of artsy-fartsy anime."  And I can't disagree.

What can I say?  I'm a simple duck.  I like my ducks in anime to be simple.  But HSxH has been pulling out the odd camera angles of late and that scares and confuses me. 

The newbies are disappointed.

1 You're only noticing this now?

I'd better not watch this series, then, because the ART!!!! stuff drove me nuts in the earlier ones.

2 Ed, it seems particularly artsy-fartsy recently. 

The thing is, I love the characters so much that I normally don't notice... or care, honestly.  Heck, I've even gotten to the point where I tolerate The Cabbage (Nazuna, newbie on the right) and would be quite happy to see Nori (newbie on the left) to "main character" status.  Heck, a picture of her is my cellphone's wallpaper.

So I love the show.  This episode's duckshots just caught my eye as... odd.
