I don't even come here ever, fuck you. That show hit all the right spots. The art style went perfectly with the theme of the show, the OST was superb, and the characters were very memorable and loveable. Most of all I was just impressed at how much they could say about life and general through ping pong, but then on second thought I realized that it's the perfect sport to tell this kind of story.

All my opinions are my own.

Eva and Madoka are brilliant deconstructions of their respective genres imo. As far as Gundam goes there are some good ones and some bad ones, I personally like Unicorn, 08th MS Team and 00. Haven't seen any Macross, never really got into it. Monogatari is a bit overrated but it's still pretty good, nice touch of the supernatural mixed in with the everyday problems people experience. I honestly don't see what's great about Love Live, the material itself is nothing special or profound but the way those producers executed it is pretty damn good. Got those poor Otakus eating out of their hands....

moot just e-mailed me and told me to let you know that your discussion is an asset to this board and is buying you a 4chan pass to commemorate your excellence.
>>
>>112492060
Well yeah, that's what I said. They're oriented in a way that makes it appealing to Otaku while not outright including all aspects of a typical Otaku anime. It still works extremely well as anyone can see by sales. It also shows Otaku are slowly moving away from their tastes and becoming a bit more sophisticated.
>>
>>112492060

The only one that's arguable is Gundam.
>>
>>112492059

This is tautological

>>112492034
We have very different criteria for invoking the adjective "brilliant."

Likely even more so as a self-description.
>>
>>112492183
Yeah, the shitty Gundam anime anyways
>>
>>112492117
It's okay, not everyone has to read into the subtext when they watch anime. They make cute shows that meander and don't have a purpose for your tastes. There's no need for you to have an appreciation of the top of the medium.
>>
You know sometimes I think a lot of Yuasa fans like him as a form of self-mastubatory ego stroking. I think this because his work is some of the most ostentatious among anime directors making it very easy to spot his style and be a fan of while allowing you to feel sophisticated and refined for having a favourite director. Much like being a fan of other directors with bold style like Imaishi or Shinbo.

It's funny how they can only recognize a person when they do the same shit every time unlike many directors and animators in the industry who work/draw on things across all genres/styles.

Yuasa, for better or worse, is the Satoshi Kon of the 2010s.

Let's hope he doesn't randomly die.

You know, sometimes, just sometimes, it is nice to feel the personality of the director instead of just them being a studio stooge or overseeing an industrial operation.

That's funny, you posted Kaiba and it's garbage second half.
>>
>>112492450
What?

Kon made two great movies (MA and Perfect Blue) one good movie (Tokyo Godfathers) and one okay movie (Paprika), which was visually gorgeous but a bit lacking in writing.

They both have very distinct styles and are the leading auteur directors of anime.
>>
>>112492411
>Yuasa, for better or worse, is the Satoshi Kon of the 2010s
There is literally no comparison to be made there at all. Its like you only know who 4 or 5 directors are and then expect people to respect your opinions on them. There are at least 15 directors operating right now who are worthy of attentions.

Are you fucking serious? There are barely 10 directors worth a damn in the entire industry.
>>
>>112492252
Yeah, and their the ones which are targeted for sales. Something like Crayon Shin Chan and other shit are the anime for normalfags. Some shitter said that anime that has a lot of success are the ones that break out of their traditional otaku-targetted shows, which is obviously wrong going from the list of top sellers.

The fucking thing is that being otaku-oriented shows doesn't automatically equal as bad. As much as it panders to otakus doesn't mean it needs to abandon things such as a compelling storyline and themes, great production values and such.

Oshii, Yamamoto, Imaishi, Yuasa, Koike, Amemiya (in b4 directorial debut), Shinbo, Tomino, Dezaki, Anno, Yoshinari.

Otakus consume any kind of anime. It dosen't realy need to be aimed to them, if a anime have cute girls or anything that can catch their atention they will buy

The same goes to "non-otakus", even if a show is directly aimed to the otaku demographic does not mean only otakus gonna buy it. Some normal people buy a certain show if they like it

The thing is: otakus are more willing to spend money on anime related merch and thats why otaku-oriented shows sell more, becouse most of their money is used for the sole purpose of buying more and more anime related things while normal folks tend to spend their money on other things and only buy DVDs/BDs when they realy like a series

Thats why studios focus on otaku-oriented shows, becouse the know if the audience like it they will certanly buy it while investing on a family-friendly series, even if people like it, there is no guarantee people will spend money buying merch
>>
>>112492836
Dezaki is dead, so that doesn't count. So that's a little over 10 directors worth giving a shit about

>>112492838
It's complete bullshit. See >>112492789. That doesn't look like 15 noteworthy directors.
>>
>>112492792
What bullshit?

Comparing Kon and Yuasa isn't that much of a fucking stretch. They are not stylistically or thematically similar, but they both have very distinct voices, a tremendous creative control over the stuff they do (did), are known as "auteurs," are aimed at non-otakus. They mostly do (did) original work, too.

Can you not get this through your thick fucking skull?

In any case, if you think there's a more appropriate comparison, you should name them.
>>
>>112492863

Ok. Enjoy being a pleb and thinking your favourite director is special and the only person doing anything worth of interest because his style is easy to spot.

Not even trolling here.

Are there any "arthouse" anime directors who try to appeal to normalfags/arthouse fans in Japan?

If he is saving the industry, why haven't his work haven't shaken up the industry through it's core as how Gundam, Evangelion, Akira or even to a lesser extent Cowboy Bebop did? Did his works ever started a new genre(Gundam), created a new system for anime works(Eva, Akira) or atleast sparked interest in the western community(Cowboy Bebop)?
>>
>>112493270

Arthouse is the opposite of normalfag. And there are some like Mirai Mizue, maybe Yasuhiro Yoshiura. But animation is far too difficult to do that with anything but a few shorts.
>>
I want to hug Yuasa!
>>
>>112493352
By this criteria, SnK is saving the industry.

There are a whole group of Independent animators from Japan who you could say appeal to arthouse?

Heh good one OP
>>
>>112493306
>>112493311
pls
>>
>>112487544
I'll admit his Space Dandy episode was pretty good, for a Space Dandy episode.
>>
>>112493270
Aside from the ones mentioned in this thread?

Check out Koji Morimoto, though Genius Party and other "Arthouse" work is not normalfag at all.
>>
>>112493402

It's influencing the industry in some way. Although not in any new or drastic way at all. Just another big shounen hit.

To save an industry, though, you have to influence it in the first place.

OP's post is a complete troll to begin with, though.
>>
>>112493495
Don't mind me, just being the most pretentious thing ever made.
>>
>>112493270
>>112493409
If you are really interested things like Thinking and Drawing, Tokyo Loop, L'Animation Indépendante Japonaise, are collections of "arthouse" animation compilations of works by indepdent animators. I don't know you would call them anime as such though.
>>
>>112493504
It's a huge hit in the West but yeah it isn't changing jack shit.

The last big influential anime was Madoka.
>>
>>112493504
You'll see Yuasa's influence in about 10-20 years.

The dude came out of nowhere. He's an original. Satoshi Kon didn't appear to influence anything either, but people still cite him as a massive influence. Sometimes influence isn't apparent because it just seems like that's the direction anime was destined to go.
>>
>>112493567
>The dude came out of nowhere
You cannot be this ignorant.
>>
>>112493590
I meant his style. Obviously he's been working for a while.

>Influential

I mean sure, it sold like hotcakes and received near universal praise, its already been what, four years? How has it influenced the industry whatsoever? Other than propelling Urobuchi to stardom, what has it done to shape the industry to the extent something like EVA or Gundam did?
>>
>>112493567
He made major movies that were his own original works, Yuasa hasn't really. I don't think he's influenced the whole industry.

>>112493560
It's a hit in Japan too. Madoka wasn't anything new either you dolt.
>>
>>112493627
It's true. Name a style like his that existed before Shin-chan.

He just appeared. Like a God.
>>
>>112493656
Speaking of Kon, will Dream Machine ever be finished?
>>
>>112493656

What style? Ping Pong's art wasn't his own you know. Tatami Galaxy wasn't that style either.
>>
>>112493651
I never said it was a massive hit like Evangelion or Gundam. You're talking about arguably the two most influential anime ever. That shit doesn't come around a lot.
>>
>>112493539
Did anyone understand that short?
>>
>>112493693

I still fail to see how Madoka really exerted any change on the industry on any significant level
>>
>>112493679
As if I know. Who could possibly finish it? Yuasa? It's funny that we're all talking about this, because he's the only one I can possibly consider for the role.
>>
>people call hacks like Imaishi good
Anime is doomed.
>>
>>112493723
That is because you know very little about the direction of anime and instead ignorantly suck on the asshole of one director.
>>
>>112493746
KLK was a giant piece of shit, and the entire thing was warped around Imaishi's direction.

Just shows you that he's a fraud when he isn't backed up by Gainax bucks.
>>
>>112493750
>instead of contributing to the discussion, you start shitting because you don't like what I said.
Where's the counterpoint?
>>
>>112493723

Yuasa isn't anything like Kon in any way. Just because you think he's "A GOD" doesn't mean they can do that.
>>
>>112493402
SnK's impact doesn't even compare to the impact of Cowboy Bebop, which helped kickstart the western anime fanbase while helping more western oriented anime shows to be born.

Well, atleast both of them managed to add normies to the anime community = more cash. What did Yuasa added to the anime industry?

Remember, critical acclaim =! influential
>>
>>112493815

Maybe things like Akira, but Bebop was an extremely late player in the western game and didn't do much.
>>
>>112493809
No one is like Kon... Who can finish his work if not Yuasa?
>>
>Make shitty anime with thrown-together symbolism and incoherent storylines
>whine about how otaku are ruining the industry
>Pretentiousfags trip all over themselves to suck your cock

Some anime is commercially unsuccessful not because otaku have poor taste or are only interested in formulaic crap or whatever the insult of the day is, but because it was never any good to begin with.
>>
>>112491613
> not Oshii Mamoru
Stay pleb, mate.
>>
>>112493783
The point was you would think that because of your ignorance.
>>
>>112493815
There hasn't been anything as influential in the West as Akira, Pokemon, Ghost in the Shell, or Dragonball Z since said things came out.
>>
>>112493961
But you're not even thinking. You're just thread shitting while the discussion moves without you. Are you okay with that?
>>
When will the reverse trolling trend end?
It's getting super stale
>>
>>112494014
Atleast some discussed shit and making me post this while you brood around like some shitter you are
>>
>>112493988
The discussion is an ignorant pleb arguing yuasa is the greatest director on earth because he knows no better. I'm fine with that.

No, I'm being 100% serious.

Just like I'm 100% serious about Hirokazu Koreeda being the best filmmaker in Japan right now.
>>
>>112494208
It's true.
>>
>>112494245

That's fascinating, really. Maybe you should stop obsessing over him like a little fanboy, because you come across as a troll.
>>
>>112494281
I'm not obsessing over him. I'm just stating my opinion. You should calm down, Anon.

Surely you must have an opinion on who the greatest anime director in all of Japan is, right?
>>
Bahi-kantoku soon.
>>
>>112493770
His direction was great as usual, it's his writing that fucks everything up all the time
>>
>>112494321

His directing was fucking boring. Early episodes were the only really impressive ones. Animation was a sham too. It was far below what I usually expect from him.
>>
>>112494307
He doesn't. He's here to spread hatred because he's a miserable person.
>>
>>112494307

Hiroyuki Kakudou.

Call this man up. Get him to finish Satoshi Kon's last masterpiece.

Why do people who like Yuasa often have to be so pretentious?

I like the shows he's done, especially TTG a lot, but there's no need to start whining about how all other anime is otaku shit or whatever the fuck this thread is about.
>>
>>112496292
>Why do people who like Yuasa often have to be so pretentious?
Because the people that suck his dick, don't like him for any reason other than he's different. They just happen to be lucky that the guy who is different, is also good.
>>
>>112496292
