Funny story, top or bottom?
What was this a reference to, by the way?
>Are you ready for the funny stories where they have to rush the key frames?
Are you ready for the funny stories when
THEY MAKE THE ANIME-ORIGINAL ENDING, THE AUTHOR DISOWNS THE SERIES, AND THE FANS IMPLODE
This does things to my dick
This guy is intolerable, he thinks so highly of himself.
Aria da bes.
Why is Goth Loli-sama so otherworldly perfection and such a boss?
Which goth loli would you fuck?
Far left is better, middle one has a really long face.
I can't stop fast-forwarding every time this shitter appears on screen.
>Goth Loli-sama's character arc
Oh fuck yes, I called this in the early weeks. My body was ready for this.
>Hating on Tarou
He's going to save musani and probably the anime medium, just give him time.
>wondering why the old thread was so quiet
You're all a bunch of fucking faggots. You complain about the newfag making the thread too early, but then you all jump ship anyway.
He can, but that doesn't mean he should. He had to realize that he was being an asshole, and anyone who's ever had to deal with an indecisive and unclear customer like that can reaffirm that.
No shit there's a problem with communication, that's what my post points out. Saying something unspecific like "It's wrong change it" is poor communication. There's so many different directions she can take with her art.
>be a professional artist
>can't even explain specific structural issues you see to other professional artists
how is this even possible?
Funny story, maybe the author really knew what was wrong but the editor didn't understand him, so he made that ambiguous review on the character design in consequence.
She is definitely a top. Her attitude just screams that she is in control, but if you work your way into her heart I'm sure you could soften her enough that she would enjoy a bit of tome on the bottom.
You must be a programming engineer or something of such kind
Ai is love.
>Put her through countless revisions
>Oh I think we like the first one actually
Good one faggots.
I've been thinking about it for a while, but I can't come to a conclusion. Help me, /a/.
Who is the worst girl?
Aww yeeeeeeea. Limber girls make me diamond hard.
It reminded when a softball hit me in the thigh.
How do I get Ema to spy on me?
Make her yandere for you, anon. It's fun.

Why is Shirobako episode always the best?
Looking forward when Ema gets the chance to do character design and wears bikini in her workplace.
This was a nice touch.
No fuck you.
>Fall in love with Rinko
>Then find this doujin on sadpanda
Life sure is kind sometimes
It's partly budget, but a well-spent budget. It's easy to throw money around and just get shit. It's also partly the subject matter. I'm guessing there's a good portion of the team who are really fired up about making this (esp. the parodies and inside jokes).
>goth loli koushien
>only one of them is actually a loli
And their suffering will go on and OOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNN
I haven't been watching much other anime this season, but Shirobako's animation is fairly mediocre. Rarely outright "bad", but it's never much good either.
Where did you get information about the budget allocation for Shirobako?
Old cars aren't weighed down by unnecessary comfort crap and unusual suspension systems and transmissions designed to save fuel. Their sheer simplicity means that they are very easy to modify and a skilled driver will be able to do more without an on-board computer deciding to redistribute power and mess with things. This is why old cars are great for racing. No hidden functions.
I made all of that up.
Hohoho, the gates of the entertainment industry haven't even opened.
For the purpose of critique, shows which are divided over the new year are treated as being counted of the following year. It simply wouldn't be fair to count it as a 2014 show when it was only halfway finished in 2014.
> budget allocation
I don't, I was assuming. For all I know, they're pulling this off on the shoestringiest shoestring that ever shoestringed. But even if so, they seem to be spending what money they have well.
The review was directly from the author though.
I think the problem is more with how the japanese are. In a professional environment, especially through text, they're often straight to the point and don't leave much to the imagination. Combine that with the pressure of deadlines mangaka face and you get "they're not cute. i don't feel it. please rework them."
If they had a face to face interview I'm sure it would have been better, but you can blame the retarded editor for that.
Yeah the 'budget-saving' episodes can be characterized by an excess of close-ups, very little overall motion and very simplified mouth movements. They cover for it well by keeping the relatively static art decent quality, especially when they crack a facial expression, and they make really good use of scene composition to draw the eye away from QUALITY.
Fucking love her in overalls.
Also, I doubt anyone here got it, but her batting style is the same style as professional baseball player Ogasawara who played for Giants and Dragons.
The joke is because goth-loli-sama has the same name as him.
I literally quit my job over this. I had an art director that didn't understand anything about art and kept approving thumbnails and sketches, and then asking for major revisions after final rendering passes.
This show is super fucking good. There are times where it gets kind of slow but at the end of the day it never fails to put a smile on my face. To be honest anyone who shitposts on /a/ about anime production needs to watch this just for the educational value.
I didn't watch Glasslips, so I wouldn't know. In my experience though, PA Works isn't really much of an animation-oriented studio, they're more focused on pretty individual drawings.
Stop shitting on the author. The editor was making bullshit excuses to not even see the staff, so for all we know the author asked the editor if he could meet them in person and the editor went "haha, funny story, they're really busy, you should get back to work"
>for a game studio
Yeesh. Congrats for getting the hell out of there, man.
Now that I think about it, prospects as a professional artist or illustrator in the west must be pretty bleak. I certainly wouldn't want to be trapped doing art for games, and comics and hollywood garbage every day.
I almost wanted to quit my job due to fatigue but then I watch the first episode of Shirobako on a train and it rekindled my work spirit.
Now I'm one of the most diligent workers in my office.
If you really want to, you can count the number of frames and cuts for any series and get pretty good idea of what the budget looks like, but that's unnecessary. It's pretty self-evident (from the number of cuts, for example), Shirobako doesn't have a massive budget like FSN, nor bare-minimum like any Deen show. Shirobako has the average budget, but it looks great because cuts and frames are saved when appropriate, like in the extended race scenes, for when it's needed. Yes, there're long talking sequences with minimum movement where the characters do nothing but goldfishing, but movement are interspersed like the Ema's dance sequence or Oi's delusions to break up the monotony.
tldr A lot of care and love were put in making of the show, that's why it looks so good.
>mfw this show will end someday
The BGM playing when they came to drag him out of there was homage of 70s cop show "Taiyou ni Hoero"
The way they menacingly approached him was straight up cops from the show too.
>If you really want to, you can count the number of frames and cuts for any series and get pretty good idea of what the budget looks
What's the fucking difference?
Game studios are really one of the last places to get full-time work as a 2d artist, especially if you're anime/manga influenced.
Doubt it, unlike Fish,
I actually know how to draw.
Good on him.
Like I said, I don't know shit about baseball. But from a physics point of view it would seem that he'd have relatively poor control by holding the bat so close to one end, due to the point of balance. You would get more power though, I suppose.
Do you know if he has a slightly high rate of missing balls?
If you have to ask that you should not seek employment in that field of work. That said, I don't know either. But I laughed at the director thinking the clouds, the planes or the environment matters in a moe show. The selling point is the girls, if they look like shit the show fails. period.
Where else will you get a stable job as an artist other than ad/digital/brand agency, graphic house, animation studio, or game studios?
Are you planning to make your own children books or something?
I used to watch re-runs of Taiyo ni Hoero, and it's pretty iconic in Japan.
Imagine if you saw a parody of Hawaii Five-O, it'd be pretty easy for you to spot it, no?
Besides this episode was chock full of 70s tributes
>If you have to ask that you should not seek employment in that field of work.
>That said, I don't know either.
I stopped watching the episode and rushed to /a/ to look for a webm of Ema's dance. Thanks for delivering.
The story was absolute trash, but the the animation and backgrounds were great. I liked the location on the bridge especially.
I liked some of the characters too, like Yanagi or headband's sister.
That's nice to know, thanks a lot for pointing it out.
The things on the side move differently from the characters and I am too lazy to fix them
We need comparison shots, cause it literally looks like the same shit from the first one.
I'm sure there's a difference, but when you only get to see it for like 3 seconds before seeing a slightly altered version again after 10 minutes you barely registered any changes and you make yourself ask
>what's the fucking difference
though I could definitely see the change when she redrew them to be more kawaii uguu
How many times has this image been posted itt?
Twice and a few webms. The good thing about watching the show 20 minutes later than everyone else is that I don't have to make webms of the good scenes, someone else makes them
>To be honest anyone who shitposts on /a/ about anime production needs to watch this just for the educational value.
That wouldn't help anything. Shirobako isn't a textbook, it's educational value is limited. To actually learn anything, you have to look into things yourself and be willing to reconsider your prior assumptions about anime production. Most people aren't interested or even capable of doing these things. They'll just watch Shirobako and conflate what they see with what they think they know, forming ideas that are just as out of touch as what they already thought.
There's probably a good ~200 anons who will watch this episode at some point in the day, pause at that moment, screencap it, search "Shirobako" on the catalog and post it along with a comment to the effect of "muh" and "dick".
Good thing I don't live in a city. There road I live on is literally dirt and the police, fire department, and garbage disposal companies all refuse to come up here because of the a half-washed out dirt road with a 50% grade being the only point of entry. The alternative would be to drive through a swamp or go up a 70% grade slope covered in boulders... or helicopter.
I think I could get away with it.
Here's a doodle from last year
I've actually done a bit of looking around for children's book jobs, but I'm too lazy to put together a proper portfolio for that stuff. Being an artist really just comes down to hoping you'll make enough from your current job to last you until the next job.
Maybe his secret is that he actually a really good accuracy, hence he can sacrifice some of it in exchange for power, thus becoming an average accuracy guy with a monster power.
Changed aspect ratio (more moe-fied and closer to 1:1), sharpened chin are the main changes. When the second sketch page gets cleaned up, the eyes and lashes will look more like the first, but again with changed aspect ratio.
You know we already have this right.
Aozora Shoujotai 801TTS
Not only is the title of the anime very similar, the heroine even looks the same.
Pretty certain it's a homage.
The stills might've been a callback to True Tears, since the director is the same, and he likes to carry some things between series. Like chickens.
Although in True Tears they were used three or maybe four times total.
They look cute together.
What would it be about?
Sometimes I draw best girl.
>All those random stills
Why the fuck are there too many of that shit.
>marathoning this show
>get to episode 12, basically the cour 1 finally
>after all that in-show talk of making the anime finally perfect and taking time for proper animation the episode ends with like 2 straight minutes of still images
>has an existential crisis as an artist and suffers through a week and a half of mental grinding and soul-searching
>it just turns out all the author wanted as to change the aspect ratio
>nobody has turned the baseball scene into the ebin maymay
That picture is nice, but really.
I don't get that either
what's the fucking point
>you will never be on the other side of that fence
>you will never be able to resist the urge to post this screenshot even though somebody pointed out hundreds of people will do the same thing
This is precisely how I throw a ball.
>yfw by the end of the show she's forced to start doing hentai
