Although on the surface ‘sakuga’ can seem like a term used to label highly engaging cuts & well-animated fight scenes, there are actually many more layers to it. A large (and sometimes overlooked) component of sakuga is ‘character acting’; an for attempt art to imitate life or even transcend the human ability to communicate emotions. In this episode I discuss the importance of character acting and (as always) break down some of my recent favourite examples! On the side, I briefly discuss my experience with The God of High School (2020).
Thanks for the kind words beandontscream!
