>”The Japanese animation industry has hit a dead end — it will be tough to escape unless we can make animation without commercial considerations,” Anno said in explaining his support of the project. “It may even be too late.”

>The plan is to make an initial line-up of about 30 animation shorts, an average of five to six minutes in length. The shorts will be made with production support from Khara and distributed on Web and as smartphone aps with technical backing from Dwango.

>Asked about the fourth and last instalment in his new “Evangelion” series, Anno offered no new info about production. “I am definitely doing it, but I have to do this sort of thing as well. I’m thinking that I’ll return to ‘Evangelion’ after I do something different,” he said.

The problem is that when you pander to their already established tastes and there are no risks taken, you end up with a stagnant, dying market, and will eventually deprive those same fans of material they would have already had.

On another note- Anno, are you just trying to get a bunch of people to just do what you did when you were a kid? Diacon IV came out twenty one years ago, dude.

Is this going to end up like that Studio 4C project called Amazing Nuts, where the most popular shorts out of the project were going to become actual anime? (too bad that didn't end up happening.)

By commercial considerations I'm pretty sure he's talking about the niche otaku market, not children or normalfags or anything of that sort.

Still, with Anno funding this project and Trigger forming a potential partnership with Pixar, it's very likely that they know anime is dying as it is right now, and they know it.
>>
>>115977359
>when you pander to their already established tastes and there are no risks taken, you end up with a stagnant, dying market
What already established tastes? People who like mecha shows? Idolfags? Making mecha shows or idol shows isn't "pandering", it's creating a product to meet a demand. Risks have to be taken to innovate but there's a balance to be struck there, and it has to be on the level of individual companies and projects. Saying you need to be divorced from commercial considerations is typical artist stupidity.
>>
>>115977259
Can you not read? He's saying that he's hoping to do something different after 3.0+1.0, and then maybe return to Eva.

He's entirely right, though. Japan needs to have something that completely changes the industry soon. It's been, what, twenty years since Eva? We need another big project to completely "wow" us again, and get studios to stop doing the same thing over and over again.

Anno has always had commercial considerations in his projects, he talk shit about irresponsible people.

Here he is saying that it's needed to do something new, without commercial restrictions as an investment to push the limits of commercial animation.

You need to make some bad independent 3DCG movies before making a commercial series like Sidonia.

>>
>>115977635
I think the claim here is that there isn't a balance- the market is TOO commercial, and it's stifling innovation. He's not saying that the market as a whole needs to be divorced from commercial consideration, but there's a need for people to work on a few projects divorced from commercial consideration to push the medium forward a little bit, and get animator's and director's chops up.
>>
>>115977756
You're misunderstanding what I'm saying. What I mean is that we need studios to start taking more risks, and not just focus on "how much merch can we sell"

It has nothing to do with anime's mainstream in the West. If it helps to dispel your fears, anime will never be as widespread/popular in the West as it was in the late 90s to the early 2000s.

>>115977800
You know westerners can't do shit to impact the market over there.

To be fair, though, I think when Anno is complaining about "commercial considerations", he means when blatant fan pandering sells the show, as opposed to high quality story telling. Shows where there's a bland, self-insert MC surrounded by pussy and there's a girl for everyone's tastes. When studios put merchandising and lewd art over telling a story that will last. Or when LN's only get adaptations to boost sales for the source. It's a problem in every industry, but in anime it gets worse and worse every year.

Shit, look at VN adaptations. Some go so far to put fanservice over story that they skim over routes in the game just so that each girl wins.

I don't know if there's anything inherently wrong with fan-service for the money, as long as it's not insulting to the audience, but the ones to blame are the Elevens buying the shit up non-stop.

If Anno or anyone in the industry is serious about making the next big Eva to revive anime, then I feel the only step forward is to go international. They had their chance in the early and mid 2000's but they blew it then. With Trigger teaming up with Pixar and Anno taking a greater focus in 3D animation, that may be the road they're heading.

>>115978116

>”The Japanese animation industry has hit a dead end — it will be tough to escape unless we can make animation without commercial considerations,”

Says the guy who made the series that had the most commercial tie ins up until that time. And set up the 'commercial industry' anime is running on now.

Also, Anno was bitching about the anime industry being dead back in the late 90s. Before it quadrupled in size.
>>

I'm pretty happy with how anime is right now, I mean we get a whole lot of crap but there is such volume being produced that there's at least one worthwhile anime every season. There is certainly still innovation in the anime industry.

You can't just ask businesses to stop focusing on commercial success, studios will do what is popular until a director wants to break the mold, then that becomes the new paradigm if it's a success.

>>115978350
Anno owns all the rights to Eva now.
>>
>>115978236
Then he should look for a way to get better writers in the industry. A few well-written studio original shows would break the illusion that only LN or manga adaptations are safe bets.

It would certainly be better than complaining about the people who buy BDs and merch as if you could trade in your customer base for a better one.

95% of book/manga/vn/game adaptations are shit, anime or no. It's a rule. Commercialization has little to do with it, it's a shitty writers/directors fault and desire to cram everything in one go.

Daily reminder that criticizing the lack of ideas on the anime industry doesn't mean to hate cute girls. Everyone loves cute girls on Japan, especially the people working on the industry. Even Miyazaki is an obvious lolicon. The criticism isn't about girls wearing miniskirts, it's about lazyness and lack of inspiration

>They dish a shit-ton of money out for movies though. The animation industry in America is huge off of movies alone.

The animation industry in America is hardly 'huge'. Its basically 3 different companies publishing and producing all the animated titles. Which are mostly done by Korean/Japanese animators anyway.

To add to this, the only reason movies do so well in America is because of massive advertising. They spend well over 200 million dollars advertising every new Disney/Pixar/Dreamworks movie. Then break even on the box office sales. Its the DVD/Blu Ray sales which bring in all the money. Its basically an investment.

And even then, what is all that advertising aimed at? The Hollywood actors who do the voices for characters. Not the unique story or animation itself.

Your point? It's different from the usual pandering fare and a fairly big-budget, successful movie could provide enough cash to fund their own independent projects.
>>
>>115978438
The problem is only LN or manga adaptations are a safe bet because the audience doesn't give a shit about anything beyond jerking-off. Even original shows are full of pandering and safe choices in an attemp to attract the otaku yen.

Anime is stuck on a vicious cycle of late-night cartoons made by otakus and consumed only by otakus. The solution would be going back to the casuals but the primetime is full of J-dramas and variety shows and they're already struggling for maintain the ratings because the audience is tired of the same shit over and over again

The amount of crappy merchandise tie ins that came out for Eva made Gundam look insignificant.

Yes, Gundam was made to be a tie in to a toy line. But the point was, Eva had 100x the merchandise of Gundam (or any other anime up to that point). It pretty much set the standard for future shows which didn't make money off of DVD sales, but royalties off merchandise.

I've kind of noticed it and been tolerating it a bit for a while, but it's just become really blatant in the last year and a half or so I'd say. I find it's mainly Aniplex pushing this sort of hyper commercialized model with trying to make all these big budget blockbuster style over substance shows with plug in x commercially popular staffers like Gen Urobuchi, Sawano and Kaijura adapted at y currently popular studio like Madhouse, SHAFT, ufoTABLE, Sunrise etc. using Z popular LN/VN license.

We also seem to get like a seasonal Monogatari entry as well out of them now because it's guaranteed easy sales regardless of content and effort level. It kind of gets old pretty fast and they're just so blatant about the commercial intent it kind of bleeds into the shows themselves and any enjoyment I might get out of them. Even if I kind of like some of those people, studios and franchises I prefer them in small doses as opposed to like...I don't know...ALL THE FREAKING TIME with constant commercial promotions and in your face blanket advertising.

Keep making good anime and people's tastes will accustom over time. Sort of like how Hollywood pushed cape films. Now everyone goes to the movies to see shitty, tasteless Marvel drek no matter how bad it is because they've become accustomed to it.

Shame that the anime industry is so divided that it can't even afford that.

Usually the reason bands "get big" in the first place is because they deviate from their original formula that made them obscure, obviously that would alienate old fans.

Eva was a product of its time and it was hardly groundbreaking concept-wise even then, pandering mostly to otakus (the early/first otakus, but otakus nonetheless).

If anything we should be looking to/for a new Satoshi Kon in anime going forward.

That's not really the problem so much as companies scrambling to try to pander to these idiots and empowering them while kind of neglecting the traditional fanbases of anime more and more. It's also still pretty despised at large if not moreso now because it's living up more and more to the stereotypes people always used to attribute to it because it's basically catering to braindead idiots more and more and becoming increasingly simplistic in the kinds of stories the shows try to tell and how it goes about telling them even as the budgets are increasing and shit continues to look flashier and flashier.

>>115978780
People will pay for good content, period. Problem is, the people with shit taste consider tits, ass, and moe. Those people are in the majority. But it's not like that is THE ONLY thing that will sell. A recent example, SnK is selling pretty well and doesn't have much fanservice in the show itself. Yeah, there's some fucking sketchy merchandising, but the animators and writers of the show are giving their all trying to make a good, loyal adaptation.

If you gotta sell daki's of the cast or something to keep the show afloat, so be it. But the integrity is in making the show itself.

Well speaking just about Japan they're pretty much enraptured with Love Live but I don't really think that's the solution. Some people might argue that that franchise was Madoka but I'm still not sure. Others seem to argue that Gen Urobuchi is the solution to all of animes writing problems but I personally find him far to one dimensional and prone to quitting on projects mere episodes into writing the scripts to be much of a positive influence.

Unfortunately people will always refuse to step out of their comfort zones when it comes to anime.

Because there's so much anime out all the time, the likelyhood of something pandering specifically to your taste are pretty high, you're never really put in a situation where you have to branch out and try something new or something you may have never considered before.
Kyoani fans only watch Kyoani shows
Moefans only watch moe shows
Action fans only watch action shows
DEEPfans only watch DEEP shows
Hell there's some people who only watch adaptions of their favourite manga/VN/LN and people who only watch original shows.

Wanted to add that some people might argue this season at least that Fate/Stay Night is that big next generation cutting edge show, but when you really think about it, the bar none most popular anime this season is a remake adaptation of a decade old eroge VN (since made just a regular VN admittedly) that features characters and story arcs most of the people watching it are likely already very familiar with and have been for about a similar amount of time as the franchise has been around and thus are mainly watching to see their favorite scenes adapted with a modern cutting edge look, sizable budget and the 2D/3DCGI blend animation style that is currently defining this era. This Fall season, the season that is supposed to be when the industry really brings out all of it's big guns, ideas and really starts pouring on the budgets, that show is considered to be the absolute best the industry can do by a considerable margin by many people. Just removing any and all fanboyism from the equation for half a second that's pretty damning for the anime industries ability to generate new content and not rely so much on past success and surefire hits.

So, he asked 30 independent animators and gave them money to make some weird shit without trying to be commercial success.

And then he is gonna take the best ideas and men to make the most epic evangelion 4.0 possible.

anime is actually a shortened form of 'animation' first coined by the French and borrowed by Japan.

I know what you mean, what we classify as anime is a show produced in Japan. But the term itself isn't Japanese. Just like the term 'Loli' wasn't a Japanese invention. Its based on a term coined in Europe after the book Lolita.

Shana, Toradora and Index sparked the interest in light novel adaptations. I wouldn't call it "the beginning of the end" because there are light novels that were adapted earlier than the three like the Lost Universe (Slayers, for example). It's just that adaptations nowadays are taken from works from Syosetsuka no Narou (e.g. Mahouka).

Whether I'm reading into it too much or not, I don't really care. That's my interpretation, and it makes the films much better for me. I'm well aware he's as guilty as the people he's calling out, but at least he's the one trying to call for more creativity.

Non anime fans know Gundam. If you're a male under 25 and live in America, it's kind of impossible to not know about Gundam. Our E.B.Games (now gamestop) shelves were full of Gundam games, our Toys R Us has Gundam action figures and models in the front rows, our main cartoon channels has Wing, 0079, and G Gundam playing in the evenings. I have a feeling you don't live here.

The only commercial aspect to Eva at it's core is variety of girls and the mech designs. Neither of these things hinder the quality of the series.

I think you're talking about the Cool Japan era of the 90's and very early 00's which has long since died out since Western animation has made great strides to take care of it's own with the likes of what you see on Adult Swim and just a realization that animation doesn't have to be for kids. Anyway this was back when you had shows like Gundam Wing, DBZ, Cowboy Bebop, Big O, Outlaw Star, Texhnolyze, Rahxephon, Macross Plus, Evangelion etc. that were able to successfully tap into the mainstream American audiences and cross the cultural boundary to the point where they wern't really considered "anime" like a lot of today's stuff and just something cool and fresh to watch. Like you could never really air most of what comes on late night TV in Japan and have it ever hope to be successful, though god help Funimation they are trying to get that ball rolling again with some of the stuff they've been funding like Space Dandy.

What you normalfags need to understand is that anime is primarily an adaptation based medium. Saying anime needs to be made more creatively is retarded. In reality, creative manga and light novels get made all the time. And usually they fail. Why would an anime studio adapt something that already failed commercially?

The reality is that consumers dont want creative. They want harems, robots, and idols.
>>
You fucking idiots.

Anno is at the fucking spearhead of ruining the anime industry.

He is literally rehashing Evangelion.
He has plans to LITERALLY rehash Nausicaa.

Hell he isn't even rehahsing them right, he's turning UP the otaku pandering despite there being literally no need to do that since Evangelion is an established moneymaker.

A couple of shorts which are literally drops in the ocean of the anime industry, accessible only for the tech-savvy crowd as opposed to having any sort of goal of reaching the masses is actually CONTRARY to the goal of creating sustainable growth.

They still aren't as obsessed over as the other shows I mention. Gundam Seed died a quick death over here. Even bobobo got more viewers than it did. Gundam Wing is the only real show that did well on American TV. And that was in the late 90s. Hardly anyone remembers it anymore.

The point is, Gundam is aimed at mecha/gundam fans. Other shows got much more popular with a much broader market.
>>
>>115979949
Not him, but Gundam as an overall influence has become it's own entity, if you will. No one is watching mechshit #2891 has saying "Gundam fucking did that first!", it's just a given at this point.

As far as the new series go, no one besides Gundam fans give a shit. I speak for America though, I don't know how Japan responds to the newer series.

Serial Experiments Lain not only opened my eyes…it literally changed my life. I've experienced the whole series many times, always letting it probe my mind to provoke thoughts I didn't know existed. If you want to know what Lain is like, watch it, or rather let it watch you. After studying the series for a while I became deeply interested in computers, computer science, philosophy, mind-expansion, and theory.

I related to Lain on such a personal level that the show almost seemed to transcend the subtext of it just being a work of fiction. But then again Serial Experiments Lain blurs the thin boundary that is reality and the virtual. The concepts and information shown at parts is very much worth looking into as well (E.I. Shuman resonance (commonly)7.83Hz). The integration into the story seems entirely possible in the future. The concept of the wired is in itself one of the most intriguing and glorious things i've ever heard of. Cyberpunk nirvana I suppose would be a way of looking at it. I could write for days on this work of art, but i'll limit myself here. If you do decide to watch it, you must commit to the whole series, or you'll probably be confused or misled. The series comes full circle like i've rarely seen any other do before.

On a side note, the series is also an incredible psychonaut tool.

Its the same for Gundam. It influenced tons of other shows (including Eva). But Eva still eclipsed it in popularity.

Since we're talking about creativeness in anime, let me tell you that in my opinion, K-On is the pinnacle of what an anime needs to have to be successful or in the very least intriguing. To me the series hit a personal note because of the whole "being accepted by society" aspect. What I found so amazing about the series in general was it's ability to cross the boundaries that others would not, all for the sake of preserving the general message it was tryingto get across. It struck a note in my heart, which sounds too overdramatic when I write it but it truly did. It shows that no matter how far a person can be hated, love can always shine through the darkness; kindness of heart and soul can pierce and corner the hearts of even the most wicked people, and forgiveness is always an option. It truly portrays emotion in a way that no other series could because it was willing to push the limits; not only of what is acceptable in the anime, but also what we are willig to accept in the real world. It captures the essence that though people can be different, everyone, nay, everything in this world searches for acceptance somewhere. We all wish to be part of some bigger picture, and some are willingto go to extremes to obtain that acceptance. But just because we put others through Hell for our own goals does not mean we are not beyond being forgiven or even accepted. The flaws are looked past in order to reach the good that truly hides within all hearts and souls.

That is what I think of the series K-On.
To this date, K-On continues to be my favorite Anime series.

Anime sales and merchandise sales are higher than they have been in any previous decade. Also despite the circlejerk it is expanding overseas. Yes Dragon Ball Z and Sailormoon were more popular than anything released today but that was it.

It's not OK, but there's more originality to what Tomino does than what Anno does.

It's as if Tomino would remake Gundam 1979 with the same characters, the same names, and he'd start the story over again every time too. The changes that are made are pointless except to pander to whatever Tomino would feel like at the time.

Anno is just that much worse.

I think the point being made is simply that anime has pretty much plateaued this year. It's the most profitable year on record but even the industry big wigs are considered about sustainability now and arguing that anime might be facing a crisis as early as 2016 with just a lack of incoming new animators, lack of creative talents and just kind of being unsure of where the next big title or leap forward in the industry is going to come from. The current era has been very good to a lot of people, but the consensus that it's kind of coming to an end and there's no further room for growth with the current model the industry has been following for about a decade now and that there's going to be another recession for the market like there was in 2009 very soon. Not anime dying out, just hitting an impasse.

Who knows? We do. Gainax was a small studio formed in a different time by several people.

Khara is a industry behemoth currently in ownership of one of it's most lucrative and well-known franchises.

Some small shorts, which there are copious amount of already (you just don't notice them or pay attention to anything but the mainstream stuff) isn't changing one single thing.

Anno complaining about the industry seems more like a ploy to have people buy more merchandise and anime out of guilt.
Because he's not helping, he's ruining his one magnificent 90's hit and is threatening to do the same with Ghibli's Nausicaa.

Rebuild 3.33's only message was "buy more merchandise of the stuff Anno wants you to buy".

That's literally it.

3.33+1.11 isn't going to change that the previous one was filled to the brim with shit writing and horrible plot devices, which only serve to feed otaku.

Anno is in the OP complaining about having to commercialize to stay alive, when that is completely unneccessary for his own Evangelion franchise, which is popular enough to attract viewers almost regardless of content.

3.33 which is a rather poor movie still does very, very well because it was filled with pandering.

>anime needs to be more creative
This is how you spot an idiot. If you want anime to be "creative", you should bitch at the writers of the source material; manga and LNs which is the source of said anime. If you really want more "creative" anime, you should actually buy said anime and source material, or else you're just a freeloading bastard crying at "the death of anime" for the 10th time.

Creativity in this case would be going against the natural order of things. Before you piss your pants, no one is saying that will make for inherently better anime. It's just a matter of wanting the industry to not constantly appeal to various factors when creating their shows, whether commercial, otaku, or otherwise.

People tend to spout bullshit like this because many western anime fans simply do not have the requisite underpinnings to understand the aesthetics of moe anime. They are still obsessed with narratives, while there has been a trend in the anime industry over the last several years to drift more and more towards a type of characterization with fetishistic realism as the main theme of many anime productions.
People invest themselves in anime as a hobby, and then get offended when they see a show they do not like; they act as if the Japanese should be making these shows for them, which is just downright retarded.
Anime is not a genre, it is a medium, and within that medium there are so many different types of stories that are told. It is naive to think that just because you like one show that you should like all of them, but there are many people who seem to be labouring difficultly under that assumption.
If you don't like moe anime, that's fine, don't watch it, but until you can manage to present a unified voice convincing enough to tell the companies that produce anime that they should take the financial risk to create shows that cater to YOU, the incredibly small western market that pirates everything, stop complaining that the medium is dominated by shows that will keep these companies in business.
Stop acting like you are entitled to 20 new titles every season that you love. If this is your attitude, then I would suggest that you have made a terrible mistake in choosing anime to be your hobby.

3.0 is even more pandering than 2.0 though. They all pander to the monster that is the "EVA FAN AUDIENCE", only the non-retarded members of that group have picked up that the movies aren't going anywhere.

You're running into your own arguments now.

You gave DBZ, sailor moon, and Eva as examples of anime which were popular in the west and all three of those aired in America during the 90s.

If you were exposed to anime in America during that time it there was a good chance it was on Toonami, if you're familiar with Toonami then you will know what gundam is regardless of whether or not you tuned in to watch it.

It's forgetting characterization, plot and developments in favor of scenes and fanservice otaku will love regardless of how well it's structured.

The third one is the biggest sinner so far, showing you shallow characters with no real background or characterization, (zero development) who only look cool and act as plot devices for the entire duration of the movie.

>>115980911
The first two aren't that bad, even though they have pandering. This is forgiven by most since Evangelion also has corresponding amounts of lighthearted comedy, and technically has a bit more than Rebuild during the first two. As long as they keep developing characters as well as the plot, and do it well, it's not the worst kind of "pandering" there is.

But the jar just flows over with 3.33, where they drop all pretense of trying to craft something well-made, and just go for the simplest solution:

Shallow characters, presentation-value ONLY. Cute things happening or extreme amounts of melodrama with pairing fanservice, the highlight of the movie being Kaworu x Shinji.

So there's very little sense, but a lot of pure aesthetic value. Lots of girls/boys to obsess and ship. That's what it amounted to.

Yes, Rebuild is really that bad after 3.0.

You're making a dumbass strawman here, it's got nothing to do about them copying the original, it's that they're making something that is just outright bad.

It's only value, because it doesn't focus on anything else, is just the shallow characters doing cool/cute/action/sad stuff. That and raw shipping material for the biggest shippers in the franchise fanbase.

Nobody is expecting it to be as filled with content as NGE, but to be as good as they could do within these movies, and it is not even coming close to that.
