How much value do you put into visual direction?
>>
Not much. Content is more important to me.

Animation is a visual medium. Everything else (story, characters, dialog) is secondary. Any anime that doesn't put art and animation first is as bad as a video game that doesn't put gameplay first.
>>
>>119277246
Your logic seems flawed. Shouldn't the art and animation of an anime be compared to a video game's graphics? Not its gameplay.
>>
>>119277316
Gameplay is what separates video games from other media. Animation is what separates anime from other media.
>>
>>119277432
A videogame has animation too
>>
>>119277105
Well OP, if you have shit and you put a ribbon on it.
It's still shit.
>>
>>119277536
Video games also have words, that doesn't make them books.
>>
>>119277536
That's not the fucking point you retard. No one plays a video game primarily for the visuals. The reason people play games is to (you'll never guess this one) play them. Now I'm sure you can put two and two together and figure out the reason people watch anime.
>>
>>119277246
So, according to you, can an anime that doesn't put art and animation first be better than one that does?
>>
>>119277703
I watch it for the story.
>>
>>119277740
An anime that doesn't put animation first is automatically bad. One that does put animation first can still be incompetently produced.
>>
How much autism do you put into these threads?
>>
Good direction is extremely important for anime to leave a lasting impression and have rewatch value. If it doesn't have good direction then it better have LOGH-tier writing
>>
>>119277817
What do you mean by "bad"? That you are unable to enjoy it?
>>
>>119277105
A lot. Too bad KyoAni is shit.
>>
>>119277105
A lot. A good script without the proper visual direction is worthless. The visuals are what bring the story to life. People can't read your script. Without engaging visuals you're just wasting people's time and would be better off writing a novel. On the other hand, an anime with shit plot but great animation can still be very enjoyable. For example, Redline and Nerawareta Gakuen.
>>
>>119278445
This. You summarized what I intended to post better than I would.
>>
>>119277817
Thanks anon. All monogatari series are now confirmed for bad.
>>
>>119279582
This was confirmed years ago. Monogatari is virgin-pandering garbage.
>>
>>119278445
Redline was unenjoyable and Nerawareta Gakuen was eye cancer.
>>
>>119279917
>Redline was unenjoyable

Woman detected.
>>
>>119279935
Compelling argument.
>>
>>119280036
About as compelling as yours.
>>
>>119277246
This guy is right. It's the same with film and the visuals being the most important aspect.
>>
>>119280195
And that's why most film adaptations of books fail. If you want a story, just read the source material.
>>
>>119277105
It's a visual medium, so a lot.
>>
>>119277190
>Yeah visual direction is completely unimportant! Only substance, plot and writing are important, that's why I watch fucking cartoons!

Holy shit.
>>
>>119279582
Monogatari has solid visual direction, even if the animation isn't smooth. It makes up for the fact that the characters exhibit little motion with fantastic static visuals and a fast-paced camera.
>>
>>119277105
What is this from?
>>
>>119280498
>Monogatari has solid visual direction
It's the usual SHAFT bullshit and isn't even interesting anymore.
>>
>>119280498
Every frame in Monogatari is a piece of art that you could print out as an impressive poster.
>>
>>119280654
I laughed.
>>
>>119280637
>isn't even interesting anymore
Yeah sure whatever you say.
>>
>>119281088
Is that picture supposed to prove something?
>>
>>119281431
Yes. That Kagenui and Yotsugi are the best combi.
>>
Here's another uninteresting shot with very little evidence of directorial competence.
>>
>>119281715
True.
>>
>>119281715
At least you're able to admit it, anon.

A lot, personally. The visual part of anime is my first priority when watching something new, and it can make me love an otherwise bullshit show with practically no plot if the animation is good enough.

Anyone who skips Endless Eight is an infidel.

Why s SHAFT so good?

>>119282759
I wish i skipped jesus, too much autism for me.

SHAFT is DAFT

More like infipleb.

I'm glad I watched it once.

It's shit.
