Good review. I enjoyed reading it. Thank you for taking the time to write it.

One aspect that I find missing from many reviews of a Kyoto Animation production is a mention of the editing. Kyoto's editing is top notch. Probably some of the best in the business. For example, Amagi Brilliant Park is a fun little Kyoto show with a light script, but the editing is simply stellar all the way through. Each scene cuts in a natural rhythm which makes scene changes hardly noticeable. Bad editing is jarring. Good editing flows so you don't notice it.

I also think the editing in Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid is outstanding. The way the first episode ends and the timing on the "city at night" cuts proves to me that they have a seasoned editor at the helm. Of course, much of that might be hashed out in the storyboards, but even that can be ruined by a hack editor that lacks rhythm.

Anyway, I'm rambling.... thanks for the show review. Cheers.

That's a great point about the editing, and something I often forget. When I was studying film a few years back, we touched a lot on editing - seems like I need to brush up on some of that information.

Recently, I watched the first episode of Love Tyrant; it was all over the place, the pacing, and the scene changes. It all seemed so janky - though, I get the feeling style had something to do with it. Yet, I just couldn't follow it one bit. Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid really shines in comparison.

Thanks for taking the time to read, I really appreciate it!

(I don't mind rambling)
