This episode was incredibly good outside of a few minor instances.
Man this one really moved far more than I expected. Hisada continues to impress by going as loose as ever and he's even showcasing some incredibly cool background animation! Loved it. Though Queen smashing into the wall of the prison was quite awkward, didn't make much sense how he switched positions. One still frame would've got the job done imo.
Mitchell Gonzales' part was absolutely lovely and bouncy af and his uncorrected art is insanely good.
That one yet unindentified piece of character acting was stupidly good. It felt incredibly alive.
The storyboard was really strong and the direction ranged from good to excellent. Great camera angles, layouts, and in some places lovely usage of color.
The depiction of Ryuou in the anime looks so gorgeous.
Did I tell you that some of those layouts in this episode were fantastically good?
And holy shit next episode seems to look even crazier. Tu Yong-ce is already asserting his dominance as an animation supervisor with some incredibly raw looking thick lineart and fantastic movement. I also see Junwen Tan in there with his yutaponesque impact frames and cool effects work. I cannot wait.
