Strange, I feel the same way about Hisako’s that I felt about Wulf’s. Upon first and second viewing, I was rather underwhelmed. However, after waiting a day and watching again? I actually really like them.
I love how Wulf just hulks out, swipes and then those cool, green claw marks. Makes me wish he had a move in-game that utilized claw marks in some style or fashion. Either way though, the fact that he looks exhausted and just a tad bit psychotic at the end fits him perfectly and really sells the effort he just put in and maybe the toll it takes on him.
I’m sure I’m reading too much in to what basically amounts to a finishing move, but I’m just trying to say that I like how it’s structured, I like what he does, and I think it’s well put together. It didn’t give me that initial “wow” factor, but it honestly gets better every time I see it. Well don!
Kinda the same feeling for Hisako’s. At first it just felt like she was doing some version of stuff she already does. No big deal. But then when you look closer, certain aspects, like the way she appears behind the opponent, the single contortion, leaving the body on the ground… Plus the way she just disappears under them.
I dunno, the whole thing just works. Not to mention the way she looks at the very end when she jump scares. She looks awesome! Again, I didn’t get an initial “holy crap!” moment, but the subtleties in these moves really help them, in my opinion.
