woah woah woah, that's some high quality shit you're talking about there. You want the animation of Sword of the Stranger, combined with characterization from Gundam Wing/Cowboy Bebop, with Miyazaki/ghost in the shell tier shading/story telling, AND Macross music? Get the fuck out of here and enjoy your next harem animu.
But yeah, I'd really appreciate some high quality output. Too many episodes suffer from really bad firstepisodeitis with apparently half their animation budget spent on the first 15minutes of the show and then 23 episodes of moving stills, mouthmovement stills, awful movement, and lifeless backgrounds.
I always credited FMA brotherhood for consistently good animation throughout. Even when things were slowpaced it never got so bland and boring as some of the shit you see today.

>>
>>121753209

That intro sequence is so great. Just the drawing quality in that series alone is great. It's the Martial Law scene that gets me to this day though, particularly the part where the camera moves across a building that mirrors the reflections of other buildings. The only thing I can keep thinking during that scene is that that level of detail and that level of fluidity with some of the complexity that Ooshi demanded must have been so hard to draw. I'm unconvinced any of todays animators save maybe Shinkai would even be up to it. Maybe Sunrise Studio 8 could pull it off...maybe.
>>
>>121755323
The problem is most of the time those people are comparing something like an OVA with a television series which has vastly different budgets when if you go and pick up any of the many unremarkable TV shows of the past they will be just as lacking in detailed shading and if not worse. People who haven't seen much old anime besides the ones that always get brought up are the only people that think good shading is something to do with the time the anime was made in rather than the market conditions changing meaning shifting budgets and formats.

The animation in a Shinkai film is not special at all. The art may be detailed but the animation is just average.
>>
>>121754417

Yes and no. Disney has sort of helped popularize it with recent hits like Wall-E and Frozen, but there are still plenty of people that want to preserve the traditions of Japanese animation and actual 2D drawings.

You can only have one of them, not both. There's a reason hand-drawn Disney stuff isn't very detailed, but extremely fluid in animation.

I prefer detailed art + average animation. I don't mind not seeing the characters not moving like spastic children all the time.
>>
>>121755446
That's different though. Anime CG is hindered by the fact that they have to make it look natural with 2d backgrounds, usually resulting in ugly cel-shaded garbage or just very plain and clunky looking CG. Pixar doesn't have to worry about blending in with 2d backgrounds so their CG can actually look good.
>>

You can play that game with tv series as well, Card Captor Sakura, Slayers, Mahou Senshi Luis, Trigun, Orphen, Gaogaigar, Macross 7 they all had great quality, much higher quality than most of the shows today.
OVA are just the final nail in the coffin as the quality is just tremendously, unsurmountably high.
You're completely right about the market, that still doesn't change that anime today is much worse than it was in the 90's/80's

>>121755440

All I know is after seeing Patlabor 2 for the first time again since the actual 90's a few years ago (I honestly barely remembering seeing the old Manga Entertainment VHS release at a friends house literal decades ago) it kind of put a lot into perspective to me as to how even modern computer assisted 2D animation that some people feel is so great compared to 3DCGI kind of pales in comparison to the traditional hand drawn cel art with a budget under a good director at the top of their game as was the case with a lot of stuff coming out during that early 90's period. I mean there were some gorgeous looking films coming out during that late 80's early 90's period that have aged way better than some stuff that came out only a decade ago. I think it's a movie that every anime fan should see at least once if only for the experience, especially if they are of the kind that think that the absolute pinnacle of animation quality and cinematography are recently popular studios like SHAFT, Kyoani and ufoTABLE.

And yeah true, Shinkai is pretty much better with detailed artwork than actual fluid animation.

For me the texturing on CGI models and the way they move at a more clipped frame rate than most stuff is what I have a problem with. At least I'm starting to see some non-CGI cars in some recent anime again. It doesn't happen often, but for a while I swear I was only ever seeing the CGI version of cars. You used to get such nice car artwork in older anime too.

There are plenty of examples of TV shows with great animation just in the last decade. There are just far more swamping them that are shit. Maybe not all of them listed are "muh detailed shading" types of great animation or maybe not all are as consistent as something like CCS but they have great animation in other ways.

No one would deny that there are some great anime talking about both animation and details, but the late 80's/90's were literally the golden age, it's a fact, the industry was at its peak and the economy wasn't fucked up as it is now.

1. The adventure feeling.

Characters moving to various places meeting different people in oposite to "static" anime where all the action happens in the same city/school.

2.Variety in desings.

Both in clothing and monsters in oposite to generic CG dragons and all the cast using the same uniform.

3. Uncensored violence

Yeah, I'm edgy, now give me back my nightmarish anime. The reason I don't wan't a Franken Fran anime is because I know with nowdays trends it wouldn't work at all.

5.Noses

6.Absence of selfparody/references to the industry.

>Gunbuster is a fucking classic, faggot. It's got some of the most memorable scenes I've ever seen in anime.

Except the plot is extremely poorly developed, fanservice up the whazoo, shitty character development, melodrama and cringeworthy voice acting. The action is completely lacking and flat until the 5th episode. The very final episode, the climax of the series, being black and white and the major battle being a fucking slideshow was just incredibly disappointing. The only good episode was the 5th episode.

Gore that's more than just someone spouting a blood fountain and that raw look of hand drawn animation.

>With all the moaning over animation quality of today it's kinda funny seeing Gunbuster here. You'll know why when you get to the last episode.
I certainly hope this is a compliment, because the final episode of Gunbuster is one of the finest experiences anime has to offer.

So 70's is not included in your "old anime is better belief"?
Nice hypocrisy.
>>121756056
That's not an example of anything, because anime is never being much high quality, good animated shit being there and there occasionally, and it's not only Kyoani, but again I can't expect from bunch of bandwagon idiots.

>>121756040
Have you ever noticed how 90% of the time, "older anime is better" people only ever mention shit that was licensed in the 80s (mostly sci-fi otaku OVAs) and 90s anime? It's because that's fucking all that they've seen. They probably grew up in the 90s, watching anime on TV and buying 80s OVA stuff from various stores, so they've built up nostalgia for that stuff. But they usually don't actually go out of their way to seek out old anime, and in the rare case that they do, they only watch stuff that instantly reminds them of this supposed 'golden age' (i.e. robots and sci-fi and space)

Don't get me wrong, sci-fi/mecha/space stuff can be great! But what bothers me is the extreme close-mindedness these people have and how it all seems to be fueled by nostalgia moreso than actual passion. You NEVER see them mention amazing 80s anime that isn't for sci-fi otaku and doesn't use the typical MUH SHADING style, like Gosenzosama Banbanzai, Gauche the Cellist or Chie the Brat.

They also pretty much don't talk about the 70s at all aside from Leiji Matsumoto stuff (sci-fi and thus acceptable).

Meanwhile the people who DO talk about all this stuff tend to not be 'old anime was better, fuck newshit' types at all.

Exactly my point. But casuals like a lot of the people in the thread only watch a single bad mainstream show from a year and then they deem the entire decade garbage. The exact same can happen if you cherrypick in the 80s/90s. I'm sure you can find even WORSE shows in the 80s/90s than you can find in the 2010s. There's good anime all around which is why you should't base your preconceived notions over whether an anime is good or not on on irrelevant things like the year it was produced

More based and down to earth anime females along with Shonen heroes who aren't whiny, cliche', and are actually cool to watch. Yusuke Urameshi and Ryoko were my favorite growing up and I barely see any other characters who were as fun and based as they were.

Doesn't those "old anime is not better" do exactly the same thing? They cherry pick the same handfull of shows with cool animation disregarding the other 22 shows of the season that one appeared?

This season there is an studio with 5 different shows and the 5 of them have low production values.

I'm not gonna say everyting in the 80s 90s was gold, and not gonna say everything in the 00s and 10s are shit, but if you pick any anime from the 80s 90s ANY not just the licensed you will see that at least they put effort on making them, may be the story was bad, and the animation mediocre, but damn, they tried.

Pick any show right now randomly and tell me if you can say the same about it.

The industry is not based on making something for a proper audience kiddy shows for kids and mature ova for adults and fighting series for teenagers, is all about produce as much series possible to sell the merchandising/source material they are not interested in the anime itself that's why they put little to none effort.

When they did ovas, the ovas were the product, so they put effort on it.

Because these faggots exist in EVERY single medium. They whine about the same shit every time. What they don't seem to understand is the quantity has gone up significantly in modern times which makes it seem like there's more bad stuff even though the actual ratio is probably still the same.

Anime fags are the worst in this because they see like 10 anime from the 80s/90s and think they have enough of a sample size to make any educated judgment on the quality of anime from that time.
>>
I'm watching Nadia right now, and half the time they don't even bother painting inside the lines.

On older shows like that you can very easily see where they're saving the animation budget and where the money shots are, in extreme cases you get stock footage then low budget pans and flapping mouths the rest of the episode.

TV anime has always been sketchy quality. Strangely enough, it's done nothing but get better on that front so I don't know what people are complaining about. I think I heard the highest budget TV anime ever was GitS:SAC, and that aired in the 00's.

I hate when people use "for its time" with regards to animation, it implies there is some kind of linear improvement going on with respect to time and that animation is on some upward trend along it. Really there is no relation what so fucking ever. The same goes for the term dated. All you need to do is look at the 40s/50s Disney films or shit like DYRL/Akira that still blows anything modern anime can do out of the water to know that is fact. It is just a matter of skilled artists, time and budget. Nothing to do with technology or date. The only exception I can think of to this is the shit that people like Ohira can do in Wanwa the Doggy when with digital colouring.

Yes budgets and skill of artists have generally increased. On average, a TV anime produced today will have better animation compared to a TV anime produced in the 80s/90s. Art direction is a whole different issue but in terms of pure animation, there is an increase in quality regardless of what your nostalgia tells you.

And you pointed out Akira and DYRL which were movies. If you think no anime movie from recent times can match its quality then you're just incredibly biased.

It's not something yet to surpass, because it's being surpassed by movies long time ago and tv animation improved since then and tv-shows can put some nice show without being a movie or OVA.

I really love how expressive CGI is in the West. One of the things I wish anime did better is show the slight nuances in facial expressions a lot better.

That has nothing to do with when it was made it is just the fact of the matter. There is animation from the 1940s that is better than anything ever done by anime. This alone proves that animation has no relation to time.

No not really. It was more just the culmination of work through out the 80s towards a realistic detailed style of animation compounded into one big budget feature. It wasn't a massive leap forward as much as the bringing together of a lot of talent and money in one place. It is a high watermark in that style of animation that has yet to be reached again in anime.

I've said this before a long time ago but GitS:SAC does not really have good animation. People remember the good sections but go look again, especially at any epsiode in the middle. I assume it's because people were paying attention to the dialogue/subtitles that it goes unremembered.

There were short sections of good animation buts it just a couple minutes (maybe more in a more "actiony" episode). The rest tended to be things along the lines of radioing with there cyberbrains so they're not even animated talking or those recurring conference scenes that are always in a long shot with only a few, repeated frames of lip flaps (fig 1).
Excluding the repeated OPs, the sequence of good animation were short and sparse. 10% of the run time of an episode being animated well is not what I would consider "good animation".

Here's my laundry list:

1. Highly detailed mechanical objects.
2. A sense of adventure rather than things taking place in a single nondescript high school or city.
3. Shading, darker lines.
4. Less bloom.
5. Less reliance on disgusting 3DCG.
6. More tasteful fanservice that has a build up and is sprinkled throughout. Nipples slips, etc. There should be teasing involved. As it stands we get fucking giant moe blob ugguuu~ tits in our face from the get go.
7. Gore that shows organs.
8. Generally more oppressive, depressing anime, but without just throwing your usual casual of typical anime characters into the mix.
9. Return of OVAs, or TV shows that are released on a monthly basis over the course of a year so that budgets are higher.
10. Hand drawn animation.

Why is the term "nostalgiafag"? I assume most of the people into these shows are in their 20s and never saw them as a young person.
>>
>>121760482
I only started to actually get into anime in 2008 and I still think a lot of the old stuff is better. How do you explain that with nostalgia?

You're assuming they are being reasonable.

Well, it's a fucking TV series, not a movie or an OVA. The art for the environment, characters, etc is also extremely detailed, so judging it by it's animation alone would be retarded. The show has plenty of other merits. There's nothing wrong with blowing your animation budget on the action sequences. In fact, you should be glad that they did that. No one wants to see a boring sequence of a character moving around and doing over-exaggerated gestures, the action is much more important than that.

I am missing a bunch for sure but you get the idea.

How many iconic shows can you really point to in the past 5 years?

no, i won't believe it anyway

Not that guy. My first anime was FLCL on megavideo in 2011~, then I watched Madoka.

My favourite anime: Gunbuster, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Evangelion, LOGH, Gunsmith Cats, and Tatami Galaxy.

>hurrrr industries never change and art always remains of the same quality over time

You realize that saying "things are always the same" is just as wrong as saying "everything back then was better than today!"

Depends how iconic. Naturally people bring up Eva as an example, but Eva is the exception. Very few shows can call themselves peerless but Eva might be able too. Most shows in the 90s never achieved the popularity that Eva did but were still great or even on par with Eva.

So I think a lot of shows have been created in the 90s, 2000s, 2010s, that could be considered iconic and just plain great.

The grey is still there. It wouldn't be that bad if the dark outlines had actual darkness.
Or if they tried to have more saturation contrast.
I wish to know why anime after digitalization has lost so much color contrast. Do they pick bad pallets or something?

How much iconic anything can you really point to at all in the past [1]5 years?
>>
>>121760756
So, iconic means "something that's good or popular to any degree". Do you really want me to list everything from the 2000s that was big?
>>
>>121760067
I miss grain.

I must be the equivalent of a vinyl record fan. Eww.

Ping Pong and Eccentric Family were pretty great shows that aired within the past few years. Death Parade from this season is pretty up there as well. Probably the most iconic anime of past era was the Macross Plus movie. Basically the definition of cool anime.

Vinyl records are making a comeback, so cheer up!

Most things I love suck, I just like the way they suck.

Iconic means widely known but a further meaning refers to its quality.

I'd argue that the iconic shows of yesteryear are better than the iconic shows today.
