The deaths of OVAs was the greatest tragedy that ever happened to anime.

This has nothing to do with being nostalgic about the past. OVAs were a superior platform for high quality animation all around; they didn't have any censorship, their budgets were higher, the target audience was more mature, etc. They were for REAL fans of animation. It's a very sad thing that they have been relegated to just being complementary episodes nowadays.
>>
Theatrical releases were always the best actually
>>
>>122692934
true
>>122692993
I dunno, the OVA format allowed for longer stuff and less censorship.
>>
>>122692993

You can't fit whole series into just a couple of hours though (fuck Berserk for thinking otherwise). OVAs were superior for that.
>>
You can probably blame Eva for this, as well as most other things that are shit about anime today
>>
>>122693049
>>122693081
There are still many anime movies that are far superior in every respect to any OVA or TV show thoguh

There are still OVA series from time to time. But yeah the format is very good, see Yamato 2199. You can show anything there and you have a higher budget.

Honestly, there's tons of violence, nudity and sex in several movies, so I don't see how censorship is much of a problem for them

Before Eva, the only TV series were shonen or comedy whereas mature and violent shows were only released in OAVs

Eva abolished that by being released on TV and being way more violent than every tv anime

It was the first TV anime that did great in video sales, killing the need for OVAs.

>>
>>122692993

Limited to 90 minutes technically.

OVAs were the bridge between TV shows and Film. They could be anywhere from 1 single 50 minute episode, to maybe 16 episodes. And they had budgets right between tv and films.

Not all of them. And it's not like TV series can't suffer from bad writing also.

>and were just vessels for people to try to shove whatever they liked drawing into every episode.

What's wrong with this? You don't like the artists taking whatever liberty they want? Why?

A Berserk anime would be great if it were just a 50+ min OVA released every few months and covered absolutely everything in the manga

Yes, especially when it would have made more sense to make a "Director's Cut" expanded version with maybe 10 more minutes of footage.

Is this a joke?

Same reason why they're still pumping out more remakes and video games and iterations of the franchise.

Because GITS babbies will eat it up, if only to compare it to the version they preferred.

Are there any must-see OVAs from the past? I'm sorry for essentially asking for recs, but I'm just now hearing about OVAs being some sort of special medium so I'm interested.

They aren't dead
>>
>>122693657

So cherry picked. The Jojo OVA's artist has a nice artstyle, but other than the first OVA the characters look nothing like they are supposed to. The Vanilla Ice episode looks particularly gross, and the Dio episode has everyone looking incorrect. Also, there was a muddy brown/yellow filter on everything.

The new Stardust Crusaders is perfect. Everyone looks nearly exactly the same as they do in the manga, it's colorful as fuck, and the animation is a billion times better than Part 1 & 2's anime. Plus, it gets the tone correct - while OVA was far too serious for it's own good.

I'm not prepared to accept that as a complete answer.
Sure, Eva's serialisation and subsequent popularity is part of the issue, but OVAs can accomplish things that TV series/films cannot due to budget, runtime and/or censorship. What we've seen is a near-complete abandonment of the format though, and Eva alone is insufficient in explaining why the industry moved away from it. At this point OVAs are mainly used for extra screentime when an anime cannot justify additional seasons (see: 90% of them in a given season).

No. It has more to do with the fact 80's Japan had an enormous economic boom, which recessed greatly in the 90's. In the 80's, studios had money to throw around - which was syphoned into a shitton of OVA'S.

The reason 2000's anime generally looks like trash is because the move to digital was done as a necessity to survive the next recession. It is cheaper, but it looked like shit most of the time. Japan has recovered a bit in recent years, and artists are more skilled with the digital medium, so digital anime actually looks good now.
>>
>>122696297

The animation on the cards is so good I forgot it was animation.

And that guy before was right about that brown/yellow filter throughout the series. But that's just crap dvd source. A remaster would fix all that. It's crazy how good these old shows look in high definition. Really crisp and clear, great colors. They look like brand new shows, but with better coloring.

Lodoss had very detailed character designs, gorgeous backgrounds, shading, etc. You can't have outstanding animation and these things at the same time. You need to direct your budget appropriately. This is what they wanted to direct at.

>Eva alone is insufficient in explaining why the industry moved away from it.

Eva came too late to really affect anything, it was more riding the wave when it came out and only got popular by chance.

OVA's haven't totally died, we just get television previews now for some and you hefta to go buy the uncensored BDs to get the real deal.

Absolutely despise everything being so pigeon-holed into 12~/24~ episode boxes though.

There are more OVAs than ever. Nearly every series has another 1 or 2 OVAs that comes with the BD/DVD. And really, their budgets aren't higher, I've seen enough of these old OVAs on AAA.

kek this is what newfag believe

>Fuuta pinpoints Evangelion as the catalyst for what eventually became the modern industry business model of creating shows that exist as advertisements for their home video release. Eva didn’t just change the perception of anime in the public consciousness, it also sold 1.5 million copies on laserdisc alone, opened the floodgates on shows geared towards otaku, and was instrumental in creating a concept Fuuta refers to as “My Anime”: niche shows with early-morning TV timeslots that shoot to make their money back on home video sales.

>Hiro has to ask: what is moe, exactly? Fuuta answers “there’s no set definition or even accepted premises for what moe is, but that vagueness allows fans to find their own personal definition of moe and go with it.”

>This period also saw the rise of production committees as a means to finance anime, splitting the risk up among a large number of investors, including some -- like financial institutions, banks, and so on -- who never would have been involved in anime production before this point.

http://www.otakuusamagazine.com/Anime/News1/Anime_Real_vs_Dream_InDepth_Review_5316.aspx

>Hiro points out this trend towards a otaku-only subject matter that the fans themselves can’t even define makes anime in general harder to approach and get into, Fuuta points to the industry catch-22: it sells. And if a show somehow gets branded as being not moe? Good luck making your money back.
