It was always better received among Western fnas than Japanese fans. One LWA event even got cancelled because not enough people bought tickets. Why else would they use Kickstarter?

You do realise that not everyone who engages in this media isn't a 'seasoned veteran' such as yourself?
Akin to shows recycling tropes and common narrative lines that originate from any country.
A lot of animation comes from the country, you can't honestly expect every viewer to be some shitpile like yourself that cares enough about what some Coreans drew on some cells to hate a nation of individuals because they 'don't make what I like!!".

Based Trigger considering western audiences, I'd like to see more studios looking outside domestic sales numbers. Japan has a very internal attitude towards it's business, a bad idea ultimately when you can make much more money by understanding the potential of international sales numbers.

That is due to a lack of proper marketing due to guess what? Japanese anime studios not understanding the potential of international sales.

Trigger making that Kickstarter was one of the first times any Japanese animation studio has ever reached out to international audiences in any way and look how bloody successful it was.

If a studio had the guts to step out and make a genuine marketing effort internationally they'd make a mint.

I think it has more to do with the fact that most westerners aren't big on physical media. I agree that they should market internationally, and I think that kickstarter can remedy the low international sales. It feels like you are funding the studio more directly.

It feels like something that will run in Shounen Jump, aka generic story of not so talanted but hotblooded protag fighting for their dreams.

No, that was going to happen anyway. Without the U.S. troops in Europe, Germany would have won the war, so eventually the U.S. would have stepped in anyway. Also, I'm not saying that the Attack on Pearl Harbor was justified in any way, but the fact of the matter is; they attacked a military target with a loss of 3,000 american serviceman. The two atomic bombs killed a quarter million civilians, not including the other quarter million that died from the incendiary bombings of Tokyo. One was an unnecessary military action, the other was a murder, and Americans are more sour about those boats than the Japs are about a quarter million civilians being targeted.

I don't hate it, but I do agree it shouldn't be as worshiped as it is. It was a cute little thing like a lot of children's anime /a/ largely ignores every season. Most of the praise comes from people fanboying over the fact that "the gurren lagaan guys" made it. Had another studio made it, people would have enjoyed it and moved on.This short did show me that there are a ton of people on /a/ who don't know anything about animation as well. When they talked about that 5 hour painting that pans on screen for 5 seconds /a/ wouldn't shut up over how hard working trigger was despite that being a standard in animation all over the world since disney was alive.

>>117477753

Considering Japan was very unlikely to surrender during WW2, the nukes were a mercy. Russia was about to start invading in the north, America was also about to invade. Instead of the loss of millions, the nukes didn't even kill a million.
>>
>>117478875
Yes, yes, we've all seen the moral debate on the merits of the nuking, doesn't make it any less of a massacre.
>>
>>117478045
This always happens, certain anime shorts blow up because of who created them. The ME!ME!ME! thing is similar.

> that being a standard in animation all over the world since disney was alive
Yeah, but the standard for anime animation is much lower than that.
>>
>>117478988
The main point is whether or not it was the best choice. Many people seem to say so.
There are of course many other motivations for using the nuke, besides the loss of life.
>>
>>117478875
You know that they say they surrendered not because of the nukes, right?

I funded it on KS, so I sure fucking hope it's good. Two years of waiting, hundreds of irrelevant spam-ads from trigger about their shit shows each season, instead of production update on how LWE2 is doing, made me feel odd about this whole project. I mean, fuck, they utilized the funds for something entirely else and delayed it till now, while offering nothing for the waiting time to the backers. It's a bit sad actually.

Do you have a single fact to back that up?
>>
>>117486925
Some of it even went into KlK budget, plus they were whoring KlK through the LWA newsfeed like faggots for months, to the point I had to turn it off due to excess spam.
>>
>>117486987
>Some of it even went into KlK budget
What's your source on this?
>>
>>117486909
This is true, actually.

The majority of the funders were not Japanese anime fans.

Nips shouldn't be complaining about something they never showed any interest, (not even in the Anime Mirai screening) in the first place.

Though again, those Nips who are complaining are just a really minority.
>>
>>117486987
All of it went to Studio Trigger. They asked for a certain amount, got a lot more than what they asked for, budgeted what they would need for LWA2 and used the remainder to do what Trigger was made to do: let animators earn a decent living, not just being throwaway contractors.

"Some of it went into KlK budget" is only true so far as some of it was used to pay wages to employees.

It wasn't delayed. They said flat out that they had projects to work on and that production on LWA2 wouldn't start in a long while.

They weren't "whoring" anything, they were keeping backers updated on how this other project were going so they would know when LWA2 went into production.
>>
>>117486862
If you ever thought that they took the LWA money into something else like, say KLK, then you are wrong.

They never attempted to touch the money out of respect to the funders.
>>
>>117486987
The hell else would you expect? KLK was their flagship, of course they're going to hype it while it's airing. Stop being such a sour apple and making shit up.
>>
>>117486862
>Two years of waiting, hundreds of irrelevant spam-ads from trigger about their shit shows each season

Not sure what you're talking about. There are 21 project updates. That's not hundreds.
I haven't gotten any other mails than those.
>>
>>117486909
>>117487117

But us westerns don't fund 99.9% of other anime and you still see anons complaining to their heart's content.
>>
>>117487316

I'd like to think we all know that our opinions on said show don't mean absolute shit.
>>
>>117487316
Touché.

We also say Nips have shit taste and wondering what's exactly the appeal of certain shows we usually catalog as shit

But then again, I don't think they care about what we think in the end. I mean, they still keep producing the shit they produce with the exceptiona here and there.
>>
>>117487316
I don't think Japanese anime fans fund a great percentage of the shows either. At least not before Kickstarterd became a thing. Only supporting them through merch and other means, if the like said shows.

Still you have a kinda fair point.
>>
>>117487657

I'm surprised more studios aren't considering kick starter, considering how successful LWA's one was.

But I guess the anime industry always feels a little slow to the plate.
