I just recognize it as the shit that Gainax/Trigger likes to pull all the time. Kamina even joked about it once, telling a guy something along the lines of "having more lines on your face doesn't always make you look tougher you know" or something like that.
>It's a technique that came from cutting down on the budget.
Do you realize how fucking hard it is to do something that stylized and make it look good? It can look like shit so easily, but the artist's high skill level made it work.
Yeah, no, it looked awesome. I'm all for insanely stable but fluid animation like a Sword of the Stranger, but the choice OPM made was interesting to look at.
This is an irrevocable difference of opinion. The usual my opinon>your opnion.
Don't get me wrong, OPM did it great, but there were some scenes in the first episode and only in that which didn't look so great. I'll post a screenshot later because I can't at the moment.
>many of the guys who worked on OPM were original GAINAX staff from the FLCL/TTGL days.
No, most of the main animators are of a younger generation from the FLCL/TTGL guys. Shingo Natsume and Chikashi Kubota did do key animation for TTGL, but none of the leading animators on OPM were involved in the aforementioned Gainax productions.
It's Yoshimichi Kameda's particular style. He uses brushes or something similar IIRC
On most anime, he limits it to impact frames and high-speed motions, but he probably had more freedom in OPM. He went all out in the FMAB movie too. The choreography's more grounded, but if you're interested in the style, you can check that out. He did a lot of awesome looking cuts in that film.
Most of the notable names on OPM are freelance. There's nothing remarkable about the show's directing, but there are a lot of young animators who did impressive work there. Animators affiliated with Bones, Trigger, WIT and general freelance talent came onto the show.
>"is there a name for x?"
>"whats this x called?"
Is this a new meme or something? Not everything has a name or is called something, is just a fucking style by the animators. Kinda like how every artist has their own style, but it doesn't mean every artist gives their style a fucking name.
From the thumbnail I thought it was the scene from the Totty episode when Todo goes mad from excitement after the girls invite him out.
This is by Baka JD isn't it?
I hate his stuff, this shot was literally the worst most lazy scene in OPM.
He is too lazy to clean his work so he makes blurry flashy brush strokes.
It's not animation, it's just lazy crap.
He can't draw a single straight line, it's always fully of random brush strokes.
He ruined the show for me, and specially because this was from episode 1 I couldn't ignore the fact that they used his animation for such an important moment.
I wish Yoh Yoshinari had worked on episode one instead of JD and the rest of his webgen faggots.
They ruined Naruto for me, and now they ruined OPM.
I can't even fully express all my hatred for this animation style. Get these gaijins out of my shows.
Bahi didn't even work on the first episode you retard. Kameda's the one known for his ink brush style.
>posting at home during anime time
Man, I remember the first time I got a phone with a browser capable of browsing 4chan comfortably. I never browse outside of work anymore, you're not interesting enough to waste free time on.
Those are impact frames. In animation, it's not so much a style as it is a technique. However, the animator that did that particular cut uses that technique a lot, so it could be said that it is a part of his style.
