paceSteven, but I agree – I liked the Shingu OP, too. Agree that the visuals don’t tell us much about the story, but given all the revelations that occurred maybe that was for the best. Anyway, we do spend most of the series at the school, so it was apropos in that respect.
However, I admit I tended to skip past it because I was too impatient to get on with the story. Too good, yaar.
I finished Shingu a few days ago. I am entranced. I have to agree with Steven, this series is top-shelf. The length of it makes a rewatch somewhat unlikely though, but I am going to read Steven’s TMW and then make a final post on my own thoughts overall.
I stitched this poster together out of separate screencaps, since the camera was panning over it:
I am 8 episodes into Shingu. This is a fun series, and I am very glad that (aside from some screencaps at Don’s) I stayed away from Steven’s lengthy series analysis a few weeks ago. I look forward to reading his posts once I am done. In the meantime, this series is a treat.
Some initial spoiler thoughts, and screencaps from Episode 8 below the fold…
