>gets ruined for basing his drawings on actual child porn
good fucking riddens
That's almost the same level as people who fap with that photo composite computer generated child porn. I need to be able to sleep at night after jacking off to lolicon ryona vomit brain fuck photosets.
Here is a shitty phone picture I took in Ikebukuro.
Obviously from DRRR
This is the only one in this thread that I've actually been to. I think other than Akiba the only locations I've recognized in anime have been from outside Japan. (San Francisco and the Griffith Observatory in Macross Frontier, lots of stuff in France and Italy, etc.)
It probably actually was Stein's Gate that I saw it in, that seems about right. I was kind of guessing just based on when I remembered seeing it and what shows came out around then that had maid cafe episodes.
I went there last summer, there's a bus on that street that can take you through that part of the town only for 60 cents.
Here's the fountain where Kanata played with the cat. Some of the locations they choose really stand out, others are blended in quite nicely that you can easily miss them if you don't have a keen eye.
Going out to photograph a real location for reference and tracing over lesbian porn shot by somebody else are two different things. I like Show as an artist, and I don't think ill of the guy, but that was a dumb fucking move on his part.
I wonder what it's like to watch anime and recognize at least half the places. Maybe it would break the immersion of being in a world of fiction, make it feal real, and make it feel like cringe-worthy chuunibyou shit. Now I don't feel like going to japan.
Are these all taken as the same city as the studios or do they actually bother to scout a location, take some pictures, then trace? Come to think about it, a lot of KyoAni's architecture/cities look the same.
>implying you wouldn't eat here
Where in Ikebukuro is that? I used to work in that area and don't remember ever seeing a park that looked like that.
There's nobody outside in Tokyo after 7pm unless you're right in front of a station or areas with lots of bars and clubs.
It's not bad. I expected it to be nothing like anime, and was actually struck at how much everything looked exactly like it does in anime, from the way normal buildings are built to the vending machines on corners to the fact that there really are random shrines tucked in between big commercial buildings and stuff like that.
I doubt it's that bad. I'm from a part of LA where they do a ton of filming, and when I see locations I recognize, it's more of a "oh, cool, I know that place!" thing than anything. It's only immersion-breaking if it's a show that's supposed to take place somewhere else and I recognize a spot.
When I've seen locations in anime that I've been to in Japan, I just think it's cool.
The only grounds for a suit for stuff like this in the US are if you can prove that it negatively impacted you financially. If a movie used a shot of your house without your permission, and portrayed it as the home of a serial killer or something and caused your property value to tank or caused weird fans to come annoy you all the time, you'd have a case, but that's an extreme case.
A lot of Tokyo is either solid commercial or residential. The commercial office districts empty out, just like many other places around the world (La Defense in Paris, Downtown LA, etc.) and nobody's out and about in the residential areas, either they're already home or they're out at bars with coworkers or whatever.
Shopping and dining areas are pretty active until late, though.
>go to japan for vacation
>come back and watch anime
>start to notice they use real life locations a lot more than expected
I don't know. Probably because they go home or go to bars to get drunk. Most smaller businesses are closed by 6 or 7.
It's not like it's totally abandoned, but it's not hard to find an empty park. Case in point, the top picture is the main gate into Sensoji at about 1:30 pm, the the bottom one is the same place at about 6:45 pm.
I always love when I get to tell the story of how I was at this CVS a week before the episode aired, and how I freaked out when I realized where they were.
Sorry they don't match up exactly.
It was normal porn, well not even really porn, softcore yuri.
>higashiyama show gets his career ruined for using drawings based from porn shots
That was an absolute fucking joke, shitloads of mangaka like Oku Hiroya, Hanzawa Kengo and Boichi copy photos outright as part of their style; and all mangaka (except maybe One) use photo's as reference.
I suppose the only difference was, Higashiyama didn't own the reference photo's rights, but that's hardly a scandal.
Seriously? Did nobody post Seize/Cuenca yet?
woops, looks like they did. I'll pay more attention next time.
After Japan lost the war and the Allies were in control for a while, the education system was altered to more closely resemble America's. This required the construction of new school buildings, because the old buildings* were not up to snuff, so a lot of new buildings had to be built in a short span of time.
*) See: any ghost story set in high school
Yes, sort of. Some of the locations in gataris are based on real places, but they're usually pretty stylized.
Also, have some of the central church tower's guestbook entries. Apparently Nördlingen inspired Titan's setting, because circular walled city and shit.
