I couldn’t stop thinking about the anime Heike Monogatari so I decided to make another episode on it – this time, I’m focusing on Episode 9, storyboarded and directed by the amazing Ryouhei Takeshita. This week, I try my best to go into depth on what I think makes this episode a standout one in the series with the goal gaining some more insight into what makes great storytelling in anime. Let’s dive into one of the standout anime of the Fall 2021 season for a second time!
