Some Images from Avant-garde Ero-anime Kanashimi no Belladonna
July 10, 2009
You can find more screenshots and my thoughts on this amazing ero-anime from my previous post here.
One of the defining feature of Kanashimi no Belladonna is using a narrator to tell a story while panning these extensively long ‘scrolls’ of stills. This effectively summaries important plots with very little animation, extremely useful for a movie of, shall we say, humble budget. Although the real beauty of such narrative technique lies in how seamlessly each ‘scene’ flows into the next like river, where each drawings more or less take a form of landscape, object or background for images that are to soon follow. The experience is different from reading a picture book or viewing a slideshow in that the story-telling feels less like connecting dot to dot, but drawing that one, long, satisfying line, if you get my drift.
