Mike Dent made a great thread on SSSS.Gridman 8

Look at this hungry boy.

The blocking and composition of these shots is so effective in communicating the emotional state of the characters. It really is admirable work.

These shot mirror each other is such a neat way. The Gridman Alliance is disconnected and out of sync with each other. They are terrified of something small, framed with the camera appear even larger than the sculpted kaiju. Their clear discomfort and fear is sharpened by the fact that the shot shows this small thing intimidating them while they are framed as larger and more powerful than it. By contrast, when facing the full-sized kaiju, Gridman enters the field at his smallest size, but then gets into his Full Combination which enables him to handily defeat the rebuilt and powered-up kaiju. He is bigger and stronger, but it is as a result of the Gridman Alliance putting themselves in a place of openness and humility with each other.

Why aren’t the Neon Genesis Junior High… kids in school? Are we going to find out where they came from? How did they get into this seemingly closed system? They are entertaining enough to distract me from those questions most of the time.

It’s funny, Akane is a god and a human, but she doesn’t get people.
