Or, I haven't been posting much about it and was pretty sure I was going to, what with this being the arc that introduces my favorite character Nisioisin has ever done, but she got a fucking minute of screen time and made little to know impression if you don't already know why you should care, so I guess I'll be waiting two weeks till they stop wasting their time on fucking sports and get back to broadcasting it.
Exhibit A: Senjogahara's house is a set, with cut away walls to film through. METAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPOCALYPTIC.
Exhibit B: Ordinary conversations are underscored by a series of metaphorically surrealistic stock imagery. Why exactly the world is filled with identical cars that have the old kanji for 5 on the side of them I do not know, but the pacing and rhythm with which these elements are included is extremely Ikuhara. (Although I could do with less live action elements.)
Exhibit C: The threat of domestic violence is never very far away.
On an unrelated note:
This bit of violence was ridiculous (and by ridiculous I mean AWESOME) in motion, but when I went to capture a frame of it I discovered that she has literally punched all the way through his skull. This is not particularly Utena-esque, but it is worth cackling about.
