skyknyt: (you know I'm bad for you)
So Lise gave me some topics to talk about in my journal, and since I've wanted to get back into the whole, you know, writing stuff that other people actually read thing, here they are:
1. More Madoka analyses!
2. I remember you saying a while ago you were leaving your job to work on a comic script. But I also know you're working at Blizzard again. So what happened in there?
3. What are you writing lately?
4. Books/anime/TV/movies that have caught your interest recently
5. Why so many anime have Neal Stephenson endings.
6. Skyrim is awesome, but still not as awesome as Morrowind - and why
7. Why people should read Michael Swanwick

So here's more Madoka Analyses! or just picturespam, whichever you prefer. I think I need a Homura icon!

Lots of images and spoilers )

Seriously the minor stuff in the background dialogue about language is wigging me out.

Let's just get straight to the pictures, shall we? )

Episode 3 is pretty fucked up on several levels, and as such it earns the Maya Bleeds Blue Seal of Fucked Up 3rd Episode Approval.

Okay, so I picked up Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica on a whim thanks to a suggestion on the PA forums. This show is anime as fuck, but in an almost satirical way. The first episode (and presumably beyond) has just layers upon layers of gaze symbolism and the implications of illusion to it.

But don't take MY word for it! )

So yeah, there's some really, really straightforward gaze theory concepts at work here. What is the meaning of all of this? More than that is the layering of art style and animation styles, which only is really visible when it's in motion (no spoilers in there that I know of), but it's super blatant. The characters are all drawn and animated as if they were in Sailor Moon, basically, but they live in extremely polished environments, and they fight their villain of the week inside of just, insanely animated sequences. Cutouts and digital artifacts and collages that flow into each other and totally ignore the framing or speed of other objects in the scene. I don't know what to make of it all!

But the first episode successfully made me very curious about it.
