The Endless Emotions In A Random Run Cycle

In this music video, a character run cycle is repeated over and over again. Everything else in the frame — the backgrounds, effects, etc. — is completely redesigned each time the run cycle resets. It’s amazing how swapping out these seemingly secondary elements can completely change the emotion of the animation. It’s also a great reminder that EVERY part of the animation process is equally important!

Note: The song is Transfer, by Livetune, with vocals by Japanese voice actress Nakajima Megumi. The animation was done by Fantasista Utamaro and Kubotabee.

It’s not like he doesn’t make mistakes, and he’s quick to let taunts get to him, but… He’s the second-strongest after Azumane, and most importantly, his ablity to perform when he’s cornered doesn’t deteriorate. That mental strength… Those are unmistakably… The qualities of an ace.
