>>137644500 I consider Space Brothers and Silver Spoon as shit, same for Oreimo. Dropped Gate. >>137644458 is if from me. Black Butler is good indeed, when they were adapting the manga. Occult Academy was average, didn't watch the others. I
>>137644783 It is a studio. There is no finagling here, it objectively is. And since it is, and they have certain tendencies and habits, there's no reason not to judge it against others. It's like saying JC Staff or Madhouse aren't studios.
>>137644986 being employed in A-1 is not like being employed in a studio like KyoAni or shaft, not all of the 200 employees are brought in for every show and not all of them are given work in a show when all of the resources are occupied, hence the term freelancers working there.
>>137645105 Well, no shit. They make ten times as many shows as KyoAni, of course they aren't going to use all their employees on every one. Does every studio with sub-studios not count as a real studio, either, since they don't all get used on each show?
>>137645117 >I'm not saying freelancing is bad. But if you change everyone every time for every different show that you do, it makes your work very uneven, unappealing for work, and frankly, stress people.
I wouldn't say that, while more traditional studios develop their own feel as they iron out their kinks and play on their strengths, sometimes there is merit to attempt to assemble an all-star cast of animators and directors to make a completely unique and possibly amazing show.
>>137645137 >"employees" that function under contract essentially like a freelancer >"they're employees because the studio says so and that's that"
>>137645221 >>"they're employees because the studio says so and that's that" The trivial claim that they're all free-lancers is wrong, definitionally, and the central point of "it's just different people cycling in and out!" is also wrong, since even if you somehow want to claim that non-freelancers should be called freelancers, they still have a large group of the same people who they call upon regularly.
>>137645221 >sometimes there is merit to attempt to assemble an all-star cast of animators and directors to make a completely unique and possibly amazing show
See, it would be great if that were the case. But it isn't. Since they do a lot of shows every season, everyone is so spread out that they have to call on amateurs just to fill in staff for work on a show.
>>137645338 Definitionally a freelancer is "working for different companies at different times rather than being permanently employed by one company." They are freelancers because they undertake different jobs when they aren't employed by A-1. Just because A-1 wants to call their regulars "employees" doesn't mean that they don't do different jobs for other studios or that they are going to be magically employed forever at A-1 when publishers dont want them
>>137645207 What makes a studio is the feel of their work and their animation quirks. With a large "studio" like A-1 you have a variety of different people and authors at work making different shows with completely different animation. If you want to fixate on the literal definition of a studio then you can call A-1 a studio but it's hard to see it as anything other than a bunch of different creators assembled ad hoc in a nice place to animate.
>>137645487 I don't know who DJ Khaled is, but I assume he's a group pseudonym? Because that's literally what a studio is in the first place. If you're going to claim the studio is about the people and not an arbitrary name, then you'd probably also have to say that Trigger made PSG. But you don't, because they didn't, because a studio is just a business entity, not the people behind it, who in any case aren't as random as you seem to be saying. It's not like every person in the industry has an equal chance to be in the next A-1 project or something, they just have a broader range than the studios you're talking about.
And while we're at it, can someone please address other studios like this already, so I don't have to keep bringing it up? JC Staff, for example. Are they "not a studio"?
>>137645684 There's no issue with defining and using the word studio like that, in fact it's very normal to do so. But OP was comparing KyoAni to A1 as if they can be compared as 'studios', when in that context it's like comparing apples to oranges - it's not a meaningful conversation like comparing specific animators or VAs or bands or writers or something.
>>137645684 >because a studio is just a business entity, not the people behind it
This is the reason why you don't agree, you've become married to the sole idea that a studio is nothing more than the dictionary definition and not the creative or artistic style that is actually attached to it.
