Welcome once again to Rincon Otaku, I am Andrés Benítez and this video I want to present the Japanese animation titles that have caught me and I have found the most interesting of this winter season 2019 taking into account animation, narrative construction, history, its characters and the audiovisual elements that enrich the work. Activate the notification bell so that you receive a message every time we upload a video let’s get started I start without a doubt with one of the most expected titles of the season, Mob Psycho 100 in its second season. The first season was full of great moments where we could appreciate part of the power of mob, and the world that surrounds him as a psychic. The first season completely caught me because it starts very slowly but halfway through the plot intensifies and we see extraordinary battles In the second season you can see that follows the same continuity and formula of the first season however in this 2nd part of Mob, we are presented with a first look to know who is Shigeo Kageyama, In the first season did not delve into the character, we only see part of what he is capable of doing and his ways of being and part of his motivations but he did not delve into the character.
Here mob expresses his thoughts much more freely, and we start to connect with him know his fears, and his strengths and also that the story is even darker than the previous season and I like that. Initiates aggressively, clear leaving aside the first episode that in my opinion was only to contextualize again in the universe of Mob. The animation is still a characteristic part and has a great role in this work And that takes more force in the 2 episodes that in my opinion has one of the best narrative constructions of all the anime not see in a play. episode 4 presents a situation with a mob of possession where Shigeo loses himself manipulated by the villain, who recreates another reality to make him understand what he must be as a psychic The amazing thing about these two episodes is that we can see the differentiation between reality and that manipulated constructed subreal world changing from the traditional format that we used to see the series 16:9 to the panoramic format 2: 35: 1 that is cinematographic format two black bars and a change in the color palette making less saturated tones. Only with that small change, one can understand in a single plane the dark, gloomy and cruel world where mob begins to live, and all with a highlight in the contrasts, a saturation of the color that dyes almost gray supported by the cinematographic concept. Only with that I was stunned, connected to everything, and enjoy every second and then see how everything was placed in such a cinema concept and that it was also a formidable choice on the part of the creative department and its management.
I put this pair of images that are of the same plane, one in its original format and one in cinemascope format with a slight correction of color to observe how these details gave episode 5 an incredible range of possibilities to represent the conflict If you still do not see the anime I recommend it and for those who still do not see the second season, what are you waiting for? Well Much of Mob, so to move to the next anime that has liked the season. Promised Neverland. The story revolves around a group of children who live in an orphanage and who leave that space when they are apparently adopted. Everything changes when they discover a sinister secret and must find a way out of there. The main attraction of the series is that it presents a development based on strategy and knowledge. For some time I did not see an anime where strategy is the main engine of the series, where the most gifted children should formulate a plan to escape face the unknown and go unnoticed in the space that surrounds them, a game of cunning without doubt.
Since death note and code geass has being the animes
which are characterized this kind of elements such as awareness, inteligence and also formed everything to look like a chest game I did not see an anime that had such elements In addition to having an attractive animation that serves as support for a story with much mystery, riddles and terror where our young players must put together the puzzle and understand the world around them So I’ll look at more of promised Neverland because another one of his strength is his characters, a dreamy girl reserved boy and an analytical boy The 3 with completely different personalities but who have one element in common their intelligence. So to enjoy this extraordinary anime That definitely became one of my favorites of the season I now turn to a fantastic isekai that although it recycles elements of other iseaki it makes an extraordinary combination and a very well-worn story which catches you from the first moment, creating the conditions to have total empathy with the protagonist. The Rising of the Shield Hero. the protagonist who is a young otaku who was summoned to a world as one of the 4 heroes who saved a medieval world from a phenomenon called waves of calamity, where strange creatures appear to destroy and cause terror and according to a prophecy, the four Heroes from different lands save the kingdom from that world. Our protagonist Noufumi has the ability to be the shield and also have the characteristic of being the weakest of the four heroes Who at the beginning of his journey through a series of circumstances circumstances that end up leading to being an outcast, and hated by the kingdom that brought him from his world, and will do everything possible to make life complicated that is the title of the series with the Rising of the Shield Hero because you really take the same anger as the character for all the injustices and where his personality changes completely, strengthen and become someone who does not trust easily from people, acquiring skills and knowledge of the world around him Undoubtedly the plot is the main hook and its animation. In addition to the mmorpg style combined with reality makes this proposal attractive A very curious thing that could be insignificant for some, but that filled me with much curiosity is that the first episode is 47 minutes long Most animes have the same average duration per episode in general is is 23 min. but this one has bien the exception in all the list presented in the winter season 2019 So far the series maintains a good development and with more expectations and what do you think about the rising of the shield Hero? I now turn to an anime Samurai style that is undoubtedly the best in terms of action and mysticism of the period Dororo, It should be noted that the only reference I have of this work is from its video game for playstation 2 around the beginning of the 2000s, but without a doubt a work that, although I have only browsed through a few pages of its manga, is a work that is worth looking at since it is a creation of the great Osamu Tezuka. Who created Astroboy, Black Jack, and the work of Metropolis adapted by Katsuhiro Otomo the mind behind Akira and other fantastic highlights of cult in Japanese animation. Dororo, revolves around Hyakkimaru a ruin and a young orphan thief named Dororo during the Sengoku Period. Hyakkimaru was a child who was born ill-formed, without internal organs, without extremities and without facial features because his father Daigō Kagemitsu made a pact with forty-eight evil yōkais yōkais for their territory to be prosperous, and retribution to these spirits they choose to take something of Kagemitsu, what was not expected is that they would take their son. The animation of the work is simply fantastic, loaded with various Japanese beliefs, such as Shintoism, Buddhism, spiritualism and many symbolisms which definitely my religious aunts see this and send me to exorcise with some pastor because it has a violent charge with action sequences very well taken and demons and curses everywhere. It reminds me of Inuyasha fused with Mushishi it makes me feel weird but I still like it So it is one of the titles that undoubtedly takes my total attention, not only by the combination of elements, but a story very well loaded with interesting characters and that offers us an extraordinary visual section. Now I have the last anime that has caught me this season and not only because there is already an adaptation made by the same madhouse, but knowing how the plot would be presented in anime format in this new generation Boggiepop and others Boogiepop Phantom is the first adaptation of this story with an incredible psychological terror that I enjoyed on the Animax channel several years ago. To my surprise this winter was loaded with a new adaptation entitled Boogiepop and Others which undoubtedly breaks with all those animes that fall into the cliché of the same with simple plot, and where they spit everything n the first episodes and that they become predictable from beginning to end like the typical shounen that they throw at us every year and that ends up becoming boring.
Well, I’ll explain what Boogiepop is about. The premise is simple to the naked eye. There is an urban legend that talks about a guardian angel that protects people from pain and suffering. Boogiepop, name by which it is known has never been seen, and has always been considered an urban legend rather than a reality However, when this being is reincarnated in the student Touka Mikashita, the people around him stop seeing it as a fantasy.
But his presence at the Shinyo Academy will soon attract all kinds of paranormal events and mysterious dangers. Boogiepop despite its animation and character design is not as prominent as other works of madhouse, has a potential in its narrative and how this anime is formulated. All the stories that start from the same narrative structure as we see it in novels, TV, movies, and in series. The space is presented , the characters are presented, the conflict is manifested to go to the turning point that will make the characters advance and thus to the climax and outcome The typical classical structure of telling a story. Boogiepop has a surprise element and is that it uses a nonlinear structure, that is, it breaks with the classic and the sequential to present a story that is told in puzzles and it doesn’t start with a beggining or an end but stars with a messy beggining we will see events happen again and again but looking at it from different points, in this we are the spectators who must decipher the enigma giving clues in a story that is submerged in a psychological suspense and terror, where the explicit becomes subtle and where the dialogues take center stage, the silences, the looks, the gestures of their characters are what make history walk and give us information about what happens, without being clear at what time everything is happening. In a moment you will feel that there is no time because everything happens so messy but at the same time so synthesized that you will say, this is the beginning or the end? the work has continuity jumps so far away from each other that it seems that each episode tells you something completely removed from what you saw in the previous one even in the same episode you will see how your head will start looking for answers of everything you see because the perception will be so confused that it does not surprise me that you have to watch the episode again. If you are a lover of thrillers that play with your head and do not say things in a simple way, and you are tired of the typical romantic scene forcibly supported with ecchi or harem because it is what sells? Then look at Boogiepop and Other you will have and amazing experience And well guys hope you liked this video and my considerations of these 5 titles, I would like to know what you think and if you agree with what I have managed to see them, and if something was missing let me know in the comments and know also your opinion on other animes that like these are interesting of the season. I have not been able to look at all of them but so far of the more than 25 that I have looked at these are the ones that have totally trapped me.
