Rinne no Lagrange–06 (Quick Post)
This week’s episode of LagRin is so Maru~ Maru~ Maru~!!!
Ah so this is what the title is about….Rinne no Lagrange the flower declaration of your heart. Seems like it could be activated with the amount of emotion the pilot experiences in this case Muginami’s words that have hurt and pissed Madoka.
God I just love the direction of this series not only the direction of the story but also the creative direction. I like how the stormy weather reflects the seriousness the series is heading. Those camera angles, facial expressions adds another eeriness/mysteriousness or quirkiness to the characters and they could successfully convey the emotions of the characters. Oh and in Vox Aura, Lympha and Ignis’s take off sequence I just love the contrast of the stormy sky against the neon colored errrr what do you call those lights…back lights?(this is open for correction). Yes there are fanservice but I think it was not the kind that makes you wince or look away instead it tickles your imaginations in a good way and a good example of that is when the girls are hunched over and straddling their seats with that skin tight uniforms…its really sexually appealing lol😄..
The characters are also superb they may fit your usual archetypes but as you watch them they’ll prove you wrong. A good example of that is Muginami since she may look like your ditzy girl with huge melons at first but as the episode goes by you’ll find out that her character has so much depth. I don’t really know if I could hate Villagiulio (errrr did I get the spelling right?) since his quirky charisma is rubbing in on me but it seems like that shot was really meant to kill off Muginami to piss off Madoka but it seems like Muginami defending her “onii-chan” also works quite well and is still within Villagiulio’s plans….oh darn I don’t know who trust anymore. All seriousness aside I love how this series could insert some comedy in it and yet it doesn’t look out of place in fact it lets the viewers see the other side of the characters.
6 episodes in and LagRin is still one solid entertainment value with its interesting story, dynamic characters, lovely animation and the hilarious comedy. Thank God I finally found a good mecha anime and there’s also Aquerion EVOL which is also released on the same day. As much as I want more mecha fights in next week’s ep, it would be more appropriate if the series would be in revelation/explanation mode next week.
Surprise me again next week LagRin!
