Toshiyuki Inoue was named "Japan's Number One".

I think it was more of creative differences. In Nip animation everyone's used to being berated and overworked.

>>118221064
Judging by this thread there are some intelligent anons left. We should expect to have interesting discussions about animation rather than getting dragged down by /v/ and crossboarders and general newfriends who don't know shit about what they're talking about.

/a/ is still elitist at heart.

So is Akira Honma's name actually Homma? They consistently spell it like that on the site.

Unless my memory is faulty it said Honma at first but it seems they have changed it at some point.

>>118221249
Homma is the correct way pronounce it in Japanese but the name could be romanized both way.

It's like senpai and sempai.
>>
>>118221203
I still believe those intelligent anons don't know what they're talking about. Reading Anipages doesn't make you animation expert

>>118221262
You could say the same for all of /a/ if you don't know what you're talking about. If you can't deal with elitism, go back to /v/

Sorry, I just don't really know animators well enough to be excited about particular ones, or be able to match ones with a style outside of like... Yuasa.

If anyone has a more vague style, I don't know. Especially becaus Yuasa got his style from Shin-Chan

so 20min Walk > Dragon Dentist > Carnage > rest is garbage
>>
How do you tell when so many animators are listed in the credits which ones do what?
>>
>>118221628
Really? I think his style is pretty obvious compared to some of this stuff... watching MADs now, and like, a lot of the people mentioned here >>118218613 seem to have a less distinct style. Then again, maybe it's mostly because they're all realists and Yuasa is more simplistic.
>>
>>118221529
I prefer people who doesn't know much names but can explain why a cut is well animated/amazing than a pedant namedropping guy

You pretend you know, post in an authoritative manner online and people will believe you.
>>
>>118221802
People need to understand one fact:
Asuka versus the MPE isn't good because it was animated by Iso, Iso is good because he animated Asuka versus the MPE.
>>
>>118221781
some animators have distinct style. Also if you have a favourite animator, you guess it more easily.
Credits give some hints sometimes with the order (chronological order, importance order, number of cuts amount order)

Same anon as here >>118221529
– as an artist myself I can certainly appreciate well-directed and drawn animation, especially when it's very fluid and retains detail. I don't know that I could speak with any amount of authority since I've never cel animated anything myself, but I can certainly appreciate it.
>>
>>118221998
the point i think everyone's trying to make is that you don't need to know every animator who's ever lived, you just need to appreciate it. The retards who went crazy over the other short weren't doing so because of the animation, they were just doing it because it was colorful and "lol so trippy xD"
>>
>>118222080
Well, that anon said that he was disappointed there were people who have "no idea who any of the key animators for this are", which is a category I fall into, and that's what I was responding to in particular originally.

No, it's because Yuasa's style has been done by other animators, and he took it from others

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f311XTtqPgc

>>118221781
Because many of them have notable styles or mannerisms. Look at the ending of this short. The surrealist part, when it all got chaotic, was clearly Ohira, who's known for this shit.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=2v6iOVhw6mQ#t=59
Great example.

The others are a little harder, but you can tell Inoue and Okiura apart from the way they animate bodies and choreograph movements.

>>118221802
>>118222080
If you know about animation, it's natural to know about animators. Few film buffs have never heard about Kurosawa or Hitchcock. Same here. If someone claims to know about animation but not any animators, they're bullshitting you, and similarly someone who knows animators usually has better judge of animation than someone who doesn't.

There's nothing wrong in doing both. They don't conflict. If anything, knowing one strengthens the others. It's preferable to know both. I can more accurately describe the style of Kameda because I know about how smears work in animation, and knowledge of Obari lets you provide tangible examples of 80s effect lighting. And then there are effects tied to specific people. Dezaki and his postcard memories or Shinbou and his retarded fish-eyes.

You're just trying to find excuses at this point. The thing is, everyone can spout a half-baked "opinion" no matter how little they know. It takes some level, though a very minimal one, to know the people behind it.

>>118221900
Well, it goes both ways. If not for Iso's flair no one else could've done it that way. And he's done plenty of other stuff. GitS, Jojo, etc.

>>118221998
What kind of artist? You professional or amateur or a student?

>>118221857
Hey, if you can bluff that well you don't need to know shit.

You misunderstood what I said. I'll rephrase: the Sistine Chapel isn't great because Michelangelo painted it, Michelangelo is great because he painted the Sistine Chapel.
>>
>>118222322
>No, it's because Yuasa's style has been done by other animators, and he took it from others
Sure, but still, compared to the vast majority of anime his art style is distinct and it's pretty obvious when he's done something. Like, I know this isn't an accomplishment or anything, but I watched Cat Soup for the first time recently and was like "oh, this was animation directed by Yuasa," without looking it up, because it was obvious.

>What kind of artist? You professional or amateur or a student?
Professional in name only; I have a professional degree but haven't really been doing any professional work since graduation.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daARNSHVqKg
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZJO5ex8za4
His animation style honestly isn't all that original. It's his usual subject matter and his cinematography on top that makes it apparent.

That is, though action shows often incorporate Yuasa's blurry lines and freeform shapes, Yuasa himself rarely works on them.
>>
>>118222915
I still dun't get it. You say it like those works defined them or gave them the skills. But that's not true. Sistine chapel was a later work after Michaelangelo had already developed his skills and was well-known for David and Pieta and shit.

I agree you have to learn some vocabulary but you can have a good opinion without it. You can say 'blur' instead of 'smears' when you don't know the word i.e
Actually my point is some self acclaimed experts recognize names but can't really explain why it's good.

>>118223125
Mmm, I'm not really sure what you're saying. I mean, I know that he's not completely original, what I'm saying is that it seems to me that it's really obvious when he's done animation or directing work on something, compared to the realist animators where they each may have their own 'tinge' to something, but still may animate very similarly.

>I agree you have to learn some vocabulary but you can have a good opinion without it. You can say 'blur' instead of 'smears' when you don't know the word i.e
That's a very superficial way to look at it. Take it from my anecdote, that I can understand much more now about anime that I know about, well, animation, or the fact that it's agreed upon by every critic and artist out there. Your understanding and appreciation and judgement is expanded exponentially by your knowledge of the subject matter. Things you never would've thought of, like squash and stretch, become super apparent when you understand how it works.

Ultimately, animation, like any art, is a very deliberate device. It's filled with subtleties and techniques used to bring out responses. You don't realize them until you learn about animation, and when you do, it expands your worldview dramatically.

It's the difference between "this scene has good atmosphere" or "this part looks cool" and "The digital bloom and simulated short lens creates a realist effect" and "by omitting internal lines and complex shading, animators are given more freedom to animate distorted limb motion and play with perspective"

There's a reason every film 101 class starts with teaching you the tools of the trade. You need to know the tools to know their effects, or rather, the effects produced are only in relation to the tools. Saying that someone who has know knowledge of anime production can make worthwhile comments on anything but the most basic elements like story and characters is laughable.

>Actually my point is some self acclaimed experts recognize names but can't really explain why it's good.
And my point is, if they can recognize names, they're probably better off than someone who can't. You don't learn about even the basics of animation without knowing a few animators.

I found the limited animation really jarring. Not that it was choppy or anything, but because it was terribly inconsistent. The frame count changed so often, and commonly during action heavy scenes too. That's probably my biggest complaint with the episode.

I know the mememe hate bandwagon is strong but honestly it wasn't half bad. The music was good, the video wasn't badly animated or anything, and some parts were really creative. I like The way the palette got gradually darker as the video went on, from light blues and pastel yellows and pinks to Violets and Cerulean to Dark red and Purple and Navy blues. That was pretty creative I think.

That and, you know, tit cannons. And clit wire.

>Simulating live-action camera artifice =/= "realist effect"
What's your definition of realism then? Early 20th century literature about immigrant workers?

If it tries to evoke a more natural feeling, a more authentic feeling, with the use of a camera nuance, then I'd call that a "realist effect". Granted, such things could also be used as a form of contrast or focus, but to say that bloom and simulated variable focus can't be used to evoke a feeling of the real world is just stupid. It's used in movies, video games, even anime all the time for that purpose.

Great example, Transformers. I don't like Bay's shit usually, don't get me wrong, but he uses bloom and very obstructive glares and lighting effects in CGI-heavy scenes to sort of obstruct that a little, take away from the obvious fakeness of it all by giving it realistic elements.

I kinda agree but I believe there're things you can tell like realistic physics or fluidity. Having other background can help (cinema, science). It's a way of commenting animation even it's just an aspect. Still better than "omg okiura oh shit inoue is god go lurk moar faggot"

>And my point is, if they can recognize names, they're probably better off than someone who can't. You don't learn about even the basics of animation without knowing a few animators.

Sometimes I doubt it when I read posts here but you are theoretically right. Problem is the lack of source about japanese animation. You mostly learn basics from western books. You can read the whole Animator's Survival Kit without learning anything about japanese names.

>>
>>118225052
I don't believe in the notion of "realistic" filming. Realistic content, characterization, drawing, animation, soundscape, dialogue, hell I'll even give you blocking and framing, but the film effects themselves are always taking away from reality no matter what.

This is why there's so many shitty "schools" of realism here. Handheld overly lo-fi stuff? Oh it's realist because it's as if it was real footage taken by random dudes!
Super careful, filtered, polished stuff? Oh it's realist because it emulates real world optics! (it doesn't)

What's "realistic" about bloom, focus pulls and grain filters? They're film effects that enhance perception. If you're already enhancing perception, you're going away from what perception is like in actual reality.

I usually don't care either way, but if I had to choose I'd say I'm against animated works aggressively chasing at these sorts of live-action filters and techniques used to work around the camera. Animation doesn't have a camera in the same way, it doesn't have to be limited by it.

Oh, definitely. Other backgrounds help a ton.
But that said, you need some background to understand it, be film or animation or whatever.
If people are telling you to lurk moar faggot, you probably should. Nothing personal. Of course, discussion is better, but if you don't know someone as famous as Okiura I don't know what to say.

But it's not realistic fliming. It's realistic animation. You have to admit a difference between Lucky Star and, I dunno, Wandering Son.

>They're film effects that enhance perception.
But they don't "enhance" perception. They marr it. But they mar it in a way unique to reality, so when you see it in animation it reminds you of reality.

>I usually don't care either way, but if I had to choose I'd say I'm against animated works aggressively chasing at these sorts of live-action filters and techniques used to work around the camera.
I kind of agree, but that's your judgement on it. I'm saying, that realism, no matter how well it ended up working, was the intent and they do accomplish it to some degree.

Here's an interesting comparison I thought of while taking a shit.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QYQS9SYa6A
Look at this scene closely. If you think about it, the way it's presented is terribly non-condusive to showing a fight. Worms-eye camera that stares at robots' crotch and gets too close to make out the fight very well. Ground-level tracking shots that can't even capture the robot's whole body. Obnoxious lighting effects that shine off every surface, and every other shot is inside a car. It's terrible at presenting an action scene, but it makes it feel more realistic. The low shots make it feel like you're watching it from inside the car. The lighting is shitty because real life lighting is shitty.

Now compare it to

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwx0EArlgQE&feature=player_detailpage#t=25
Elegant, cinematic lighting. Far shots that capture the entirety of the action. The camera's steady and the music is intense. There's no concern for realism here, only an amazing fight.

You don't try to educate people though. By telling people they are wrong and commanding them to go learn something you are trying to make them educate themselves.

I was only talking about the filming, not the animation. Of course movement and drawing can be closer or further away from reality.
Even then, it can get diffuse as to what sort of "realism" is "more realist".

I don't think the concept of realism is all that useful for technical discussions/breakdowns honestly. It's more of an interpretation/critical analysis thing.

The point to the conversation would be to compared the two.

The Metamorphosis serves to show how strange human relationships can be when taken out of context.

This pretty much did the same thing, only there wasn't a door separating the main character from her lover.

Also she changed back.

And then she was happy that the bug got squashed, only because she knew her little bf wasn't the bug.

Very shit ripoff of Kafka, losing everything that made The Metamorphosis good.

They could have animated anything they wanted.

They ripped off one of the most well known stories written in the last century without understanding what made the story good. They honestly could have just changed just the ending for it stay in line with Kafka and actually have some meaning. They didn't.

What the hell was this bullshit? I mean, I liked the story and concept, but it was animated like a turd. This is supposed to be a fucking animation expo, how could something that looks like a first draft with jerky 5fps sketches be considered an exhibition of anything? Are well-respected animators just allowed to turn in an incomplete, cheaply done work and expect people to accept it? Mememe, despite some shortcuts such as the CGI fps scene, had smooth, well done, stunning animation which made up for it's admittedly half-baked plot. This just had a middling concept that was executed in pencilscratch on used napkins. 0/10, Khara shouldn't have even allowed this to be shown until it had the same level of animation expected of even the cheapest seasonal anime.

>The Metamorphosis is not one of the most well known stories written in the last century

Are you going to next tell me no one knows who the fuck Kafka is? And that The Metamorphosis isn't the one story everyone knows when his name is mentioned?

Again, stop apologizing for them. It is not difficult to make a story that is interesting, ESPECIALLY when you are already ripping off a well appreciated story.

The fact that they rip it off and take out what it made it good is deplorable. They could have kept everything in it up to the end, all the animation and then kept the ending Kafkaesque.

Just because a few of them a retards doesn't mean criticism and scrutiny wasn't ultimately better for the industry. Innovators like Hitchcock and Welles relied on critics and studies as much as anyone else. Hell, the first generation of film schools practically revolutionized the industry.

Critics aren't always good but introspection, studying what you do and understanding it, is VITAL to improving it.
Unless you prefer the movies before these developments. I'm partial to Stormy Weather but I wouldn't want every movie to be Top Hat

You're trying too hard to analyze it. Yes, it's Kafkaesque, and yes it's most likely inspired by the Metamorphoses. But they're not trying to adapt the story, nor do they seem to be attempting to have it relate in any way beyond the premise. I don't know why you're so mad about it.

Again, if you want to excuse them for setting the bar low, do what you want.

This is their work, and they should done their very best. If they couldn't do some basic research, or be literate enough to know that they were rewriting The Metamorphosis then fine. But I completely doubt it, and if they were influenced by that book then they completely missed the point of the book and a great opportunity to animate an amazing story.

For fuck sake. They could have had this great animation and a great story. Why the fuck would you not want that? Only a moron would back peddle on his own work so hard to make such a poor excuse for their own damn work.

In fact, it would be a ripoff if it tried to have Metamorphosis' themes and plot arc. Copying the base gimmick (a thing so unoriginal, I thought about it when I was 6, before knowing what a Kafka even was) doesn't make it a ripoff.

No it really wasn't. You just need to look at the industry today. You can't make a genre film without the critics shitting on it and demanding you make some 75 hour long black and white jerkfest about you eating your own shit.

When they do something with what they were given, rather than just pandering?

I also don't understand why you keep bringing up spider man. Spider man is not at all like The Metamorphosis. The main characters in that both have to deal with "becoming a bug" but spider man embraces it and becomes a super hero. In this animation and in the book, becoming a bug is horrifying because others become hostile and estranged.

The fact that spider man looks human throws this problem away almost entirely.

The point is that 100% of the interactions in the episode are between the girl (who doesn't know that she's a bug) and the guy (who doesn't know the bug is actually the girl). Her realization comes immediately before she wakes up. Basically, while The Metamorphosis is about a group of people attempting to cope with some fucked up circumstances, this short is basically a misunderstanding.

So you haven't read The Metamorphosis? He believes he is in some dream state, or the very least has not completely accepted that he has in fact transformed. That's why he is surprised to realize that no one can understand him when he speaks, whereas before he thought they could.

Both main character develop into learning what they are, and they do this through interaction with main characters.

The main character of this animation realized she had become a bug just like the main character in the book. Get over it.

You enjoy cherry picking I see.

The character over times comes to realize what they are. Are you just going to ignore the part of the story where he thinks others can understand what he is saying?

If someone fully understood that they were a bug, they would know that others couldn't understand their utterances. The character over time comes to terms with this.

But please keep cherry picking. He at first thinks he's a bug, then tries to deal with it, one of the first being, this must be a dream, shit im late for work and so on and so on.
