What do you think of experimental anime such as Shoujo Tsubaki and Belladonna?
I think they are decent enough but the attention they get in particular bugs me somewhat when there are tons of other equally great experimental and creative independent animators out there that never get mentioned.
Maruo's manga made a great storyboard by itself, but J.A. Seazer's OST and and some of the directorial tricks are fantastic too.
Great OST and art direction, but not much else.
Really brave and experimental for a 1973 animated movie, but that's it.
This movie was so great, I wish the short films were subbed
I liked this one, but it was probably just experimenting how mean it could be.
The thing with experimental films is that most of them are interesting but not actually good.
Any animu that does something innovative and unique has my respect. That said, the Buñuel of the anime industry has yet to reveal himself.
The only gripe I have with this list is that Ashita no Joe 2 is there, but not Ashita no Joe. I would have left some out, but it's bretty gud. I never really managed to get my head around Yoji Kuri's stuff though.
Anyone have Takun Films 1 and/or 2? Cannot find them, trying to proxy.
Have some other experimental stuff that I don't think is online that I'll upload but need a Blu-Ray reader first to rip some of it.
Midori is not really experimental though
It's just a gore anime adapted from a gore manga, there's not much more to it. If anything you could call the distribution methods 'experimental' but it's kind of a meaningless qualification and doesn't hold anymore now that the film itself is digitally uploaded and available to everyone
>It's just a gore anime adapted from a gore manga
Guro != Gore.
I wouldn't really call it experimental either, but the production and content wise it's definitely very atypical.
Belladonna IS experimental though.
Anything unusual and different is interesting but that doesn't mean that it'll be good. Best thing is to just watch what you think you'll like and enjoy. You just have to stay open minded and ignore genres and stuff. Interesting things can be found anywhere. That being said, everyone has their preferences. I try to not touch anything vampire related because I fucking hate vampires.
