Atmosphere with a Touch of Lust

I find shows that use atmosphere as its primary hook are a tough sell and requires a high level of finesse before it even begins to work. Eternal takes a look at a live action adaptation of a manga in this vein called Solanin.  It’s not the greatest display of the kinds of emotions that atmosphere can evoke, but it’s certainly better than what Genji Monogatari Sennenki has to offer according to Kaikyaku.

Kevo also tackles a very different atmosphere driven media in his review of the latest Fate/Zero OP.
