I think my favourite show this anime season is SSSS.Gridman. It’s an animated version of a tokusatsu show — an early 90s, internet-themed “giant hero” show. Nick Creamer’s review captures what I like best about it:
Between its encroaching powerlines, its vast grey skies, and its shadowed school halls, there is a sense of solemnity and quiet alienation to this place that makes all of its fantastical drama feel strangely real.
The opening scene of the 2015 pilot short encapsulates it well.
