what the fuck did i just watch?
What anime that can be count as art?
Saw subs for beyblade bursts first episode up on nyaa and checked it out. It was pretty simple but I like the style this new series has. Not sure what the rest of /a/'s thought are on the spinning top series but it still hold a place in my heart. Hope its better than metal series was cause i got tired of that quick.
discussion thread i guess?
The twins with the fangs are really distracting.
Not sure why they think adding that is good character design
None the softer
Sleepy softness is certainly the best.
Bumping only because she's my favorite.
W-What are you staring at, Anon?
I can't get into Steins; Gate
The animation has a depressing atmosphere to it, and it's way too slow
What makes it great, guys?
Source material automatically makes adaptations great I guess. In my book anything that requires more than 2 episodes to start off is ridiculous, and in this case, 8 episodes is just plain retarded.
Chapter 8 Big Brother
>Don't be afraid, lift your head up. Because you didn't do anything wrong.
>>The mutant demon!!
>This sound sound he made
>At that moment
>Was the same sound that came from that other guy back then
>Like a sound echoing against the rolling wind
>Damn damn damn damn!! I'm going to die!!
>My body is gradually falling apart I'm already too late to stop it
Make sure she is cute!
This girl isn't cute, but she is a huge slut.
>long running series/franchise
Take the first long running series that you have been following for at least five years. Let's define a long runner as a series or franchise that continued for 10+ years with no end in sight.
Now tell me why you are still following it. For added fun you don't have to say what it is, but describe the series' merits and let others guess the title.
The OVA better give us Super Gyanko.
I assumed they were going to give an announcement once IBO ended since it's the same studio but still nothing.
To be honest I only care for the BF one. Aside from some possible cute Gyanko moments the Try OVA is just unnecessary.
Daisy - STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION (Kyoukai no Kanata)
Looks about as good as the first episode.
watched Slayers when i was 6 or 7 and never knew lina was a cute. Was Slayers the first anime with these modern looking gigantic eyes?
Satoshi Kon, director of Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, Paprika
>He makes a comment: the disposable nature of anime today; back in the days, there was more anticipation and fans digested each work better.
>"Animation based on popular manga, giant robots and big-eyed girls with shamefully skimpy costumes will continue to fill the screen. I think that's okay. These productions fill demands; the audiences for them support the Japanese animation industry. Thanks to them, there is room for a non-mainstream creator like me. Of course, I hope many unusual pieces will also appear."
Hayao Miyazaki, director of Nausicaä, Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away
>"I think Japanese animation is facing a dead end," he said.
>"I think there is a chance that the spread of Japanese animation overseas might only lead to embarrassment."
>And he described younger anime makers as the "copycat generation".
Yoshiyuki Tomino, creator of the Gundam franchise
>"All I can say is that the creative process in Japan is obviously showing a decline."
>Stop buying anime magazine and stop watching anime now.
>If you have time go see some real paintings and watch live performance at theaters.
Hideaki Anno, director of Evangelion
>He feels anime industry is exhausted : A continuing trend of stagnation.
>And said "over the past years, there has been no anime "newer" than Eva."
Mamoru Oshii's, director of Ghost in the Shell
>"The world of hand-drawn Japanese animation became useless long ago, as far as level of achievement and talent. The stuff airing on television these days can just be churned out, mass produced.
Katsuhiro Otomo, director of Steamboy and Akira
>'The skills of traditional animators have become worse, and notable young animators have not come out to the scene. This is a big issue for the industry. '
How do we make anime great again?
>asspain of a bunch of bitter old farts
Assuming the quotes are even real, Miyzaki has no place to fucking talk. Basically all of his works are self-fellation of his personal beliefs, along with shoving some perfect waifu of his as the main character.
Satoshi Kon has been dead for 6 years so idk why you're bringing this up, but his quote is the only good one.
The rest of these guys sound like jealous old fuckers and most of them are plain wrong. Especially those last three complaining about lack of innovation and proper animation techniques. One Punch Man has some of the best animation sequences in the history of anime, and it's also a pretty refreshing concept for a show. That's just the most recent example, spanning back there's pretty much at least one great show every year. Fuck Hideaki Anno's...
