Weekly ED: “Sayonara gokko”

With all the best OPs of Winter shows we’re watching out of the way, here’s one of the best EDs of the season: a much slower and more contemplative sequence than the vibrant minecart ride that is the OP (as befits most EDs). The extreme closeups hand-drawn in charcoal fit the bittersweet song by Amazarashi, and the first time I saw it it had me guessing which expressions Dororo would make next. It’s a very pretty and haunting way to close the book on an episode.
