    Worked on this film as an animator folks!

    Actually watching it, I am simply amazed by the animation, Production I.G. doesn’t hold back on that. There’s a POV shot that goes on for more than a minute, and that was probably my favorite scene. The seamless blend of 2D and 3D elements  blew me away, putting the viewer in the eyes of a volleyball player. Haikyuu has always managed to do this well, but man that scene was next level.
    Can’t wait for people to watch this overseas!
    I never watched Haikyuu and I had an absolute blast!

    Shigeru Mizuki is the GOAT of Japanese horror. Thankfully the crew decided to make a more mature story. Really impressed with some scenes, genuinely gave me the creeps. Horror animation deserves more love guys.

    It would’ve been better if it was edited closer to an actual film, not just as a compilation. But the hype is real, we have entered the 3rd season and it’s just awesome. Rewatching the last 2 episodes of season 2 might’ve been filler, but it was thrilling nevertheless. Season 3 ep 1 was just great, honestly I’m starting to think that all future Demon Slayer releases should be experienced in the movie theater. So cinematic, feels like a waste to watch it on TV, iPad, or iPhone.
