Why did Nichijou bomb?
I mean, shit like Azumanga Daioh, Lucky Star and K-ON! sold like hotcakes.
It's not fucking fair
It was way more comedy-focused than Azumanga, LS and K-ON
The comedy was also pretty niche and hit-and-miss
The BDs were absurdly expensive and they were only sold 2 episodes per disk.
DUDE IT'S A MUNDANE SITUATION BUT THERE'S LOTS OF SPEED LINES AND SKETCH SHIT AND EXPLOSIONS DUDE BUT IT'S MUNDANE LMAO EVERYDAY LIFE LMAO
Nips have shit sense of humor.
Nichibros also sold pretty poorly but the comedy was top tier.
There aren't that many good actual comedies anyway. Most of them are labeled as comedy but at most they make me smile, it's more of a feel good instead of a HAHA kind of comedy.
It's funny on occasion but not funny enough to be the punchline to a third of the jokes.
33% normal funny jokes
33% "look at this character overreact to this thing with really intricate overdetailed animation"
33% jokes that just don't have a punchline
>The BDs were absurdly expensive and they were only sold 2 episodes per disk.
>Nichijou 2: Electric Boogaloo
>"Oh, mister controller and marketing analyst! We've sold so few copies with the last Nichijou work, we have to consider low sales but still high production costs incoming!"
>"I have an idea!"
>1 episode per disk at double the price
That image is so exploitable. You could precede the first frame of the explosion observed from outside the house with basically anything.
It is a mystery but it did look like it was more fluid and with more sakuga than your average anime, even by KyoAni standards.
Flopped harder than Nichijou though.
I'm 100% sure that the punchline to all of those jokes that you say "don't have a punchline" are either lost in translation, lost in cultural differences, deadpan humor that you didn't catch, or just jokes that went over your head for one reason or another.
Why do people think it wasn't popular? It didn't sell a lot of copies, but it was really popular. It was even rebroadcasted in NHK-E and shit. The OP has like a million parodies too. It's very well known, just not very profitable.
Nichijou didn't sit well with the KyoAni crowd
KyoAni didn't sit well with the Nichijou readers
the animation kinda destroyed the pacing of the jokes
oh and the BDs were expensive as fuck
>Nichijou didn't sit well with the KyoAni crowd
It would have sold like hotcakes if they weren't acting like fucking Jews. Nobody is going to pay $80 USD for two episodes with no BD content worth giving a shit about.
The way they fractured the entire OST across over a dozen discs also makes them huge cunts.
Except there's nothing remotely wrong with what you just said, retard.
Also, fuck this spam thread.
Look at kyoanis style before and after nichijou
They MADE their studio from then on.
For those who don't know why, its because kyoani isn't technically a studio but a college. They have endless slaves. They used nichijou as a 'training' project. They focused on the visuals and animation and found what they liked and didn't like.
And it still gets discussed to this day. It was a resounding success. /a/ doesn't understand it, /a/ doesn't need to. Kyoani will continue to put out their brand and gather students like no one else can, and pay about the same as other studios for better shows with better work.
They aren't always going to have a Free! or two, but still they are going strong and its nichijou that lead them down this path.
KyoAni just most likely intended to adapt their novels before the Nichijou incident. Still, Itou being demoted because of Nichijou is probably why they've been mostly doing the own IPs, though. I bet that if Nichijou hadn't flopped, and Chuu2 hadn't been the success it was, they'd probably still be doing both in-house LNs and Kadokawa content. Glad to see now that Kodansha is still working with them.
>pay about the same as other studios for better shows with better work
If you mean budget-wise, yeah, probably. If you mean paying their employees, hell no. KyoAni pays by the hour when other studios pay by the cut, and KyoAni animators have said that the average day at the studio is pretty relaxed work-wise.
How did they flop even with product placement?
First off, Azu is WAY better than Nichijou
Secondly, Nichijou was pretty funny, sadly the funny segments are vastly shorter than the combined unfunny ones and filler "stock footage". It's boring as fuck 80% of the time.
Last episode of monster musume is pure forced animation.
They took mundane scenes from the manga and filled them up with explosions and overreactions because I guess they had budget to waste. Ended up looking like shit though, and they had this weird camera pan thing they tried in the first half of the episode that looked strikingly bad.
I deny it. Making movement fluid isn't forced animation, it's good animation. Having a lot of movement isn't forced animation, it's making good use of a medium. Forced animation is when you add unnatural movement to something just for the sake of having more movement and looking like you are oh so good at animating. See for example Bahi.
No, it was just too good and this meme is only a thing because it is a KyoAni show.
It's impressive how you people even try to make good things look bad just to justify your point or make up your lack of arguments.
>It's not fucking fair
It's really not. Even though it was silly and full of nonsense I really like it ;~;
The typical Don Bluth argument doesn't apply here. Although there are things in Nichijou that don't have to be animated as well as they are, they aren't things that are necessarily drawing the viewers' attention away from the important parts of the scene. If we take your argument to it's natural conclusion, we should really not be making anime at all because nothing "has" to be animated.
>Why did Nichijou bomb?
Nichijou didn't bomb. It just didn't sell well because the BD's cost almost a thousand bucks, and even ronery otaku can't raise that kind of scratch for a cartoon series.
But I'm sure you knew that already OP. You're just trying to bait a Nichijou thread into existence by using Guaranteed Replies.
>Elevens didn't into Nichijou
>A Tsunami destroyed their country in retaliation
The only time the term "forced animation" is ever an acceptable description is when it comes to Motion Comics, as in, when someone takes Watchmen and fucks around with the characters and items in the panels with Flash so that they move a little bit for no reason and then charge a special price for it.
Why are hotcakes associated with something that has good sales?
2 How to get rid of a stag beetle from fingers!
Beep Would you repeat once more?
3 How to get rid of a stag beetle from fingers!
Beep Sorry, would you repeat once more?
4 How to get rid of a stag beetle from fingers!
Beep That's a funny question.
Arai just tweeted this strip.
This is only bad because there's no fucking depth. Otherwise, the additional movement easily emphasizes the characters urgency and agitation.
Did you guys grow up on nothing but the most low-budgeted CG anime or something? Why do you think this is bad other than parroting bullshit you've read/heard on the internet?
>Nichijou was a really good anime, with an amazing humour.
not braindead enough and too japanese
Because it's hard to watch an anime where 2 out of the 3 leads were fucking awful human beings
But Gintama does well, although that's more of a institution in Japan than just another manga or anime.
It's not very funny.
I really tired to like it because the animation is really something else, but I couldn't finish it. It's just too bad.
I didn't think there was something more bland than standard japanese misunderstanding or bawdy humour, but here comes Nichijou with LOLRANDUMBXD every episode.
