New Kotetsujou no Kabaneri PV.
Egoist is doing the OP.
It will sell as much as SnK (a lot) or as much as GC/Valvrave (not that much).
I'm really baffled that you guys aren't bored with those cute female characters. I barely watch anime nowadays, but damn, how can you still be obsessed with those generic same-looking girls or lolis?
>And here comes the next big thing. Funny how the 2 most popular of 2016 will be made by the same team.
>It will sell as much as SnK (a lot)
Just like Black Bullet right?
>It will sell 10-15k at best.
Not even sure where you're pulling these numbers from because even Japs are unhyped for this giving most of them pointing out the obvious "this looks too much like SnK" comments.
Why am I not surprise you would be stupid enough to use the Western card as if anime runs on what sensibilities the West likes.
>Not even sure where you're pulling these numbers from because even Japs are unhyped for this giving most of them pointing out the obvious "this looks too much like SnK" comments.
Guess I'm being too optimistic.
Jesus fuck, that guy is long past his prime. He needs to sit down and refine his composing skills. These days all he does is slightly tweak his precious work and that's all.
This shit isn't even popular nor is it highly anticipated amongst groups, its the same shit across both Japan and the West "this looks like a SnK rip-off" the only difference is that Japan doesn't seem to be as stupid as Westerners for once abd actually remember shit like God Eater abd Black Bullet which tried to play the same card and both bombed hard also nobody gives a shit about modern Mikimoto designs but newshits in the West.
No you're just being retarded.
>that character and art design
The show that had an all star cast of popular male VAs and was pushed hard by fujoshi is a runaway success? Wow.
You can't go anywhere without someone calling it a SnK rip-off.
Oh my god how much notSnK are they gonna get?
What is Wit doing?!
>The show that had an all star cast of popular male VAs and was pushed hard by fujoshi is a runaway success? Wow.
Mind telling me why the same didn't happen with Shirokuma cafe?
>Shingeki looked good
Its still funny that even with the studio citing that SnK was a production nightmare and had job listings for extra animators people still say that it looked good but then again people say that an average episode of Naruto also look good
Had next to no animation
Looked like straight up garbage especially in the second half when they just stopped giving a shit.
Your standards are too high anon. I bet that's why you shitpost on /a/ whole time instead watching anime.
Ow, as expected. Calling SnK good always summons that salty faggot with same picture. Try same as above
All that good art lost on a ripoff
People seem to forget what WIT's last original anime looked like.
Fantastic PVs and first two episodes, then the animation went to utter shit (minus some climax scenes). And that one had fairly simple character designs.
You guys keep moving goalposts, no one is praising the story or denying the Eoten influence. The art style looks great. Like a late 80's, early 90's OVA.
>but WIT past shows
Who gives a fuck? They won't cancel it midways. If it keeps consistently at this level you can at least count on it to deliver eye candy.
>Looked like straight up garbage especially in the second half when they just stopped giving a shit.
Do you mean the second half of S1? Yes it looked like ass. But S2 looked way better than S1.
You mean those two dots?
You mean that high textural gloss that makes everything look like dolls?
This is like someone transported the first chapters of SnK and Walking Dead back to the 80s and someone made an anime based off those assumptions.
The animation and designs are noce but not expecting much more.
>posting a male characters
That's some high level cherry picking. Look at all of those two dots:
>Sunrise is your example of average studio now
Back to you.
>The show has a better list of VA's compared to Osomatsu-san.
He said POPULAR you dumbfuck
>The show was also popular among the females.
Yeah...middle age women who don't buy anime.
Big order, Hero academia, Phoenix Wright, Joker Game, Macross and many more will be shitposted too. I really hope Hiro will finally do something serious with moderation for /a/
Could you...could you shut the fuck up?
Your greentexts and newcalling are doing wonders, anon. You totally convinced me with those hot facts.
WIT is no worse than most and there's no episode out yet, who is the say they don't have a bigger and better team for this project?
And you praising a PV from a studio infamous for having inconsistent animation quality and rushed production throughout all their works is so much better.
>WIT is no worse than most and there's no episode out yet, who is the say they don't have a bigger and better team for this project?
So you're delusional.
I misquoted him there (>>137315434), but if you look at all the screens I quoted and read the whole post you'll see we have the same opinion and I was just pointing out how the scene youareanewshitanon choose the only one ITT that had a subtle nose and somewhat fitted his bias.
Yes but the PV CG looks like shit
>Osomatsu-san and shirokuma cafe have the same VA
>Why are you using an excerpt from the SnK anime?
>But S2 looked way better than S1.
Seriously why do WITfags exists? Its not like their animation is consistent like BONES and KyoAni and their original output is low as fuck so its not like they have a good resume either. I guess SnK brought in a lot of newfags.
No its just that the noses are no different from most modern shows.
>Praising modern Mikimoto designs
Just when I thought /a/ couldn't get any more pleb.
>all their works
You vastly overstate it. I didn't care much for AoT, but reused scenes for the broadcast aside there wasn't anything too offensive having the rest of the industry in mind. Hōzuki no Reitetsu had no problems, so that leaves The Rolling Girls and Seraph of the End. The later being the only one to shit the bed more often. So what one, two shows and they are modern Toei tier?
I don't know if you've heard the music before, but I believe that Sawano's j-drama "Mare" from last year had some of the best and most fresh music from him in years. He does sound too samey too often which sucks, but his Mare OSTs prove otherwise.
>reused scenes for the broadcast
There were in the BDs too
>there wasn't anything too offensive having the rest of the industry in mind.
Airing an unfinished episode is not offensive? Not even God Eater did that shit.
The show was largely just talking heads with little to no animation
>putting the blame on Mikimoto
Compare you pic with the ones ITT and in this PV, it looks like garbage. That's not on the original designer, that's bad art direction and adapted designs.
The problem is because it looks flashy and cool and like AoT people are going to have crazy high expectations and then it's just going to be like Guilty Crown and lack any sense of structure in the story and just be full of annoying asshole goofball characters that betray each other ever few episodes for the sake of twists for no reason and people dying only being revealed to arbitrarily be fine a few episodes later. I just expect the writing for it to be really really REALLY bad particularly given Okouchi's track record of late.
>The show was largely just talking heads with little to no animation
So are a lot of other shows any season. And plenty of them still get crap shots every now and then. See the recent Monogatari entries.
Looking at the entire staffs pedigree and how things typically go when they're involved tells me it's going to suck hard. I mean you've got a director infamous for style over substance, a guy infamous for churning out some of the most horribly written episode to episode clusterfucks that ignore any sense of continuity and a guy known for consistently making the most overly loud bombastic soundtracks that never seem to fit scenes properly making everything even more awkward as the average hammy scene clashes with the most melodramatic music. About the only person I expect to do well here is Haruhiko Mikomoto cause he's just doing some nice looking character designs and then gets to fuck off from the project while Araki, Sawano and Okouchi make a mess of things together. God help them if the show has like 5+ script writers like I'm expecting.
What does it matter, idiots will still think he's making the most hype awesome coolest soundtrack ever and continue to make an icon out of him because they're tone deaf and can't tell they're listening to like 80% the same soundtrack as he did for the last show he composed for which was usually a few months ago at most.
I don't know what to say. You really need new eyes. Say what you will about the PV, but it looks nothing like Tytania misplaced shadows and terrible soft palette. Tytania is what you get when you try to use his style with modern shadowing and subdued color, it clashes. They could've gotten a different guy with a modern style for the job and it wouldn't look so off. Kabaneri embraces it and try to stay close to it.
I don't see what's to greentext, that was one of the most anticipate and popular shows of it's season and year period all around. By comparison this isn't as much but you can tell they're going for that "OMG HYPE" MAL sort of crowd with this. Personally I don't think it'll be all that successful with the mainstream somehow. Writer too bad, at least Titan had a source manga to draw from which while not great is still probably better than Ichiro Okouchi could likely put together. I used to just think it was Hiroyuki Yoshino dragging him down, but Valvrave approved the guy is just astonishingly bad at writing. It's like he's trying to be insulting towards the audience with how stupid he makes everything.
>Kabaneri embraces it and try to stay close to it.
And it fails spectacularly, Mikimoto's designs just don't work in modern times, they wind up looking far too shiny and doll like without the human touch and there's also the fact that like many artist from the 80's and 90's his art regresses when he switched to digital techniques same shit with Kitazume.
Kabaneru looks no different from Tytania with the only real difference is that the latter has a bigger budget. Modern Mikimoto just looks like shit and there's other shows that do a good job of capturing an old school feel and Kabeneru doesn't look like its trying to do so.
>all this 3 tone shading and classic character designs
Riding in the 90s!
I'm trying niggas
I'm trying really fucking hard to look at this with an open mind
I'm really really trying to not be an overly pessimistic fuck
But fuck, I'm seeing walls, I'm seeing gears, I'm seeing wires, I'm hearing an OST song that sounds like it's going to break out into German at any time. This looks really obviously looks like they want that SnK magic again, but with zombies
