Kaguya-sama: Love is War

Image

Plot:
Considered a genius due to having the highest grades in the country, Miyuki Shirogane leads the prestigious Shuchiin Academy's student council as its president, working alongside the beautiful and wealthy vice president Kaguya Shinomiya. The two are often regarded as the perfect couple by students despite them not being in any sort of romantic relationship. However, the truth is that after spending so much time together, the two have developed feelings for one another; unfortunately, neither is willing to confess, as doing so would be a sign of weakness. With their pride as elite students on the line, Miyuki and Kaguya embark on a quest to do whatever is necessary to get a confession out of the other. Through their daily antics, the battle of love begins! - Mal Rewrite

Really enjoying this so far, if it keeps up like this it'll be a lot of fun. It's the exact kinda thing I love and I can't wait to see more. It won't be a huge favorite and it's not really breaking any new ground or anything, but it makes me smile and is fun and that's just what I want sometimes.

This is good fun. Looking forward to what Chris has to say about it, what with the relationship dynamic, and all :)

Agreed

Me and Andy had a fun little discussion. Would love your thoughts. Mo-cap, cg, or rotoscoped?

I'm gonna watch it again tonight. Def not mocap, Def not rotoscoped. I think it was a brilliant bit of traditional animation. But as I say, will be watching again tonight.

If it's CG, what the hell is wrong with Rooster Teeth?!?!?!?!?!?!

Kk can’t wait for your thoughts


For after you put down your oppinion

Spoiler:
We lean towards a solid mo cap with solid hand drawn animation to hide it. The hair and dress are just too fluid.


Only flaws I personally see were in the glance backs she did as she was walking to the bug on the curtain

To throw my own hat into the ring, I gotta agree that there’s no way it’s CG, even good CG is obvious if you’re looking for it. It could be mo-cap or retoscoped to a dagree but I don’t think they’re just done in its own. If one of those was used then it was touched up a lot afterwards to make it fit in correctly. Either way it’s impresive as.

I believe it is just plain old good animation. The song is only a minute long, no other movement beside the carracter and the definition by itself is very low as to make it even easier to do. Just concentrate on the hair, it shows.
Yep, it is a very good piece of animation. I love it. And the song is not half bad!
