Anybody else think that Hibike had pretty autistic directing? There were plenty of pretty shots but the rapid editing gave us little time to drink it all in.
Yes. The worst scene by far was the running scene. It was just absolute melodrama with no context, not to mention the actual animation looked like garbage.
I really don't like how KyoAni directs some of their shows. All of the shots look the same in terms of focus and there's no natural flow between them
That's almost as rich as forced animation. Thanks anon.
>literally yelling and crying and finally coming to terms with her dream and desire to get better and be special after being inspired by Reina
>""all melodrama with no context""
>melodrama with no context
Anything that has emotional expression is considered to be melodrama on /a/. That's what happens when you let underaged people take over.
>no natural flow between them
Sure they do.
>coming to terms with her dream and desire to get better and be special
Exactly, is this the kind of event that requires literal yelling and crying and running down the street for no reason? There are ways to convey emotion without the character needing to basically throw a fit in the middle of the road.
It's just an exaggerated climax for the sake of having a climax. Hence, melodrama.
They took a relatively undramatic event and made it out to be super dramatic by using a lot of unnecessary animation, really intense direction, and I think there was some dramatic music playing too. KyoAni does that sometimes and people eat it up, so I guess that's probably why they did it.
>a relatively undramatic event
But that's wrong. That scene is the culmination of Kumiko's entire character arc. The moment she realizes that she's tired of not taking music seriously, that she wants to improve and succeed, even if it means having to suffer the pain of failure.
But did she have to freak out? Does the completion of her character arc mean that she has to undergo some super dramatic event and therefore she starts running and screaming or whatever?
Just because a scene is important for a character or the plot in general doesn't mean it has to be made melodramatic for no reason. I don't have a problem with the idea of a climax in this situation, but they just made it so way over the top and it ended up being comical. Especially considering how tame most of the rest of the show was, suddenly acting like this moment was the end of the world was silly. It was the same thing with the weird friendship/romance between Kumiko and Reina, which was obviously exaggerated to hell for yurifags.
>Does the completion of her character arc mean that she has to undergo some super dramatic event and therefore she starts running and screaming or whatever?
This is anime we're talking about. There's nothing wrong with the action and visuals matching the emotional intensity of a scene. The alternative is characters just sitting and talking or going through an inner monologue, but that Nisio tier stuff is polarizing enough as it is.
She's a highschool girl of course she had to cry and yell. It was the climax of her character arc and a fucking revelation for her as a person. The direction serves to emphasize this. This isn't a KyoAni thing, this is a storytelling thing. It's an animation thing. It's a fundamental technique for setting the mood of an important plot point.
Ribbon a shit
>But did she have to freak out? Does the completion of her character arc mean that she has to undergo some super dramatic event and therefore she starts running and screaming or whatever?
Have to? Not really. But then again, relatively little of what's done in works of fiction is because it strictly *has* to be done. In comedic works, characters do things and events take place that aren't strictly necessary, for additional comedic effect. In dramatic works, the same for additional dramatic effect. What you're doing here is complaining that a drama makes use of dramatic effect. You might as well be complaining that musical instruments are featured too much...
This is actually true.
I mean there were obvious hints dropped in the anime that at least Kumiko is a lesbian and Reina is bi.
Yamada is lying. She wrote a yuri-story but she doesn't want to admit it because she is afraid of her true feelings or trying to safe face.
>asuka looked older in the early draft just like her novel counterpart
She could have been delicious.
I don't see much difference, She just has a more stern looking face in the draft.
>They took a relatively undramatic event and made it out to be super dramatic by using a lot of unnecessary animation, really intense direction, and I think there was some dramatic music playing too.
You are a legit idiot.
This must be the most retarded thing I've read this week.
The direction wasn't one of the faults of the show. In fact it was what made it stand out besides the pretty drawings.
Animation wise cardcaptor sakura was better and it was made in the 90'.
Not an even slightly rare thing in anime.
If this is the Euphonium of Hyouka, then which show is it that's the Hyouka of Euphonium?
Her skin alone is so angelic and pure.
Anyone care to elaborate what is 'autistic directing' supposed to mean?
Does that mean the director has asperger syndrome?
What is 'rapid editing'?
Does that mean the editor is quick at editing the scene to produce final product?
Isn't that good thing?
They both had filters and bloom out the wazoo. It's not difficult to make that connection. KyoukaiNK avoided this fad and I wonder if that's part of why I've seen people suddenly praising Ishidate this year after everyone originally mocked his show.
>Ishihara: For me, when it comes times to distinguish between cuts, I may fix that by writing “insert a pan around here.” As a director, you can’t ignore the number of cuts or the ability to control the cuts. This might be said about other places too, but I question if the modern anime tempo isn’t too fast. For some reason, the number of cuts has increased to about 350 per episode. In the past, we’d cut it off at around 200 cuts.
>Yamada: Surely 200 cuts was nice for CLANNAD. There were many in the first half that had 300 or so. I think the mood of increasing the number of cuts started around there……
350 cuts/episode is a pretty high number.
Normally, only a high budget action-oriented episode would use that many cuts.
