Which Studio is better?

Trigger are hot the new studio on the block who have made Inferno Cop and the now legendary Kill la Kill. Their list of anime might be small, but they carry the essence of GAINAX over the last 15 years with guys like Hiroyuki Imaishi and Masahiko Ohtsuka, who all worked on anime like Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, FLCL, Panty & Stocking etc.

As for SHAFT, they've been around for a while, but they've shot to prominence over the last 10 years. They're primarily known for the universally popular Monogatari Series and Puella Magi Madoka Magica, but were also successful with older hits like Natsu no Arashi, Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei and Hidamari Sketch.
>>
>>122945186
SHAFT made Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.

Therefore SHAFT > Trigger

This isn't necessarily "which studio has the better shows".

That's an important factor, but it's also the staff they're comprised of. Trigger was formed by the guys who did those Gainax Anime, and therefore, those should factor in to a certain extent.
>>
>>122945626

No.

Trigger only carry a portion of the essence of Gainax. Studio Khara being the others carrying other portion. And current Gainax has the lefovers.

OP, I understand what you say, but you are still essentially comparing both Shaft and Trigger as studios.


Trigger has their own distinct style from Gainax now.

Kill la Kill it's not an anime Studio Gainax would have done. The nearest thing would be TTGL, and still, Imaishi was being monitored and whiped by his superiors to not go too crazy. Also, the budget.

Hideaki Anno was also part in Re:Cutey Honey and KareKano where Imaishi was doing his forte: animation. But those areall Gainax, not Trigger.

As in "Pre-Shimbo Shaft" "Shimbo Shaft" and "Post-Shimbo Shaft"? Sure, but they were still Shaft.

Trigger is still relatively a brand new studio that need to make more brands on their own.

I almost said SHAFT, but the only thing they have going for them is Aoki Ume and whatever she's involved with. They handle adaptations of certain works okay for the most part, but I'd have trouble giving anything I loved willingly to them. Almost every one of their works feel the same thanks to them using the same tired ass angles for the past forever.

Trigger has Inferno Cop and Little Witch Academia, and while Kill la Kill was a huge disappointment for me, I was certainly more entertained by it than most of what SHAFT puts out. Plus, they actually animate something other than a neck tilt every now and then.

Hidamari Sketch is the greatest SOL of all time

Kill la Kill is too intelligent for /a/. They notice wordplay and think they have it all figured out, then completely embarrass themsleves by saying the direction ever changed or the plot was ever subverted.

Most anon see fast paced action and titilating fanservice and are too shallow to notice the depth that lurks underneath.

Kill la Kill is a masterpiece. Shaft has never made a respectable piece of art. Madoka was a nice attempt, but its characters were too weak to carry it, and the art was pretentious. The symbolism was shallow and was never referenced in the structure of the narrative.

You simply don't understand it because you're a shallow individual. You didn't even recognize the metaphor of the stage, and you probably don't even know the driving force of the red string of fate, which is tied into 'life-fiber' and the 'heart' of the Kamui which functions on a blood bond and thrives when fear is left behind and the stage is taken with confidence and resolve.

I can't stand this long fucking joke /a/ has where they pretend SHAFT is smart.

Trigger has animators at the apex of technique ever pioneered in the medium, and the writer for Kill la Kill is a seasoned playwright and brilliant poet.

SHAFT and Trigger are not comparable. SHAFT makes products to be sold, Trigger creates high art they love with the freedom they gained from leaving Gainax.

It's a character driven drama like most anime. The focus is on the character's themselves, their growth, and their interactions.
>>
>>122953579
You don't see Disney or Pixar fawning over the opportunity to meet SHAFT animators. This is because they're not notable.

The staff on Trigger are the best in animation history. Imaishi, Sushio, Yoshinari, Amemiya, Hori and Ootsuka.

The only other studio within SPITTING distance of Trigger is Khara. Not Ghibli. Khara.

>>122953734

>>122953494
Shaft is not smart. Granted Trigger has quality animators but they just do not have the budget to go create another popular pop-culture shit in anime industry because of their tight budget and funding, until they went cheapskate and keep reusing the same animated frames over and over again in a series they produced.

Also, Shaft's recent anime are mostly made to promote books and boost the sales (except Madoka of course). The sequels were just to ride the popularity until original source materials ended.

There you go again. There were gorgeous scenes in Saki animated by a single guy, and the studio was almost dying back then. Money doesn't excuse bad animation.

>character growth
>Bakemonogatari
Honestly though, I didn't see much growth in the characters. The waifus all overcome their "dillemas", but Araragi is still pretty much a self-insert a Marty Stu, and I don't think he's ever gone though any development arc at all.

Plus perhaps the only remotely interesting character LEAVES. Fuck Bakemonogatari.

The drama is also very dragging. 3 episodes to complete one character? What the hell.
>>
>>122953742
having best animators and best screenwriter doesn't guarantee quality animated series or film overall. Look at Dennou Coil, the animation was superb but that cliche ending made it a total garbage.

Not a single cut in Saki is on a level with what you see in Kill la Kill. Trigger is a master of their art.

Also the best cut in Evangelion was done by Imaishi.

>>122953937
Finally a good response rather than the typical dicksucking. I agree, but I feel like your point doesn't apply to Kill la Kill, as it's script was one of the more brilliant and inventive works in anime history.

Dennou Coil did disappoint me, but I can't say I was expecting anything from the story. It was just a really nice premise that allowed the world to come to life in an interesting way. One of my favorite anime, but not because of its writing.

>>
>>122953734
People give Bakemonogatari too much credit. In fact, it's pretty much SHAFTs cash cow at this point.

SHAFT were far better as in-betweeners for various other productions and when they made their own, non-adopted content (Soredemo notwithstanding). They seem to suffer from QUALITY most of the time though with the ridiculous BluRay reedits, and its not even small things but glaringly big mistakes, and the occasional weird choice of edits.

Trigger on the other hand is still brand spanking new. They made Little Witch Academia, KlK, and some in-between animation here and there plus some adaptations I don't even care about. Too me they are waaaay too fresh to be compared to SHAFT, not to mention I think their time is quite smaller than SHAFTs. If they want to become GAINAX 2.0 YOU CAN (NOT) ANIMATE then they need to get that guy Akia who left Gainax during the Gurren Lagaan 4th episode scandal.

So yeah, Mangoes and Oranges, with a very unripe orange at that.

Two reasons

Proof that the anime is a failure as a medium. Or that SHAFT is really bad at adapting Noissin's work.

Araragi barely grows to amount to anything but a self-insert stud. He has never experienced loss or hardship. He gets away scott-free by virtue of plot armor or deus ex powers i.e. vampirism. But most of all, he's just unrelatable.

Going purely by track record I am going to go with SHAFT mainly because they have more to show.

The staff at Trigger obviously has tons of experience but if we're going purely by shows I will give it to SHAFT.

I think Kill la Kill was pretty good. It wasn't anything ambitious or have anything really worthy of any actual in depth discussion. However I think it had a lovable albeit 2 dimensional cast of characters that were very energetic and chewed up the scene a lot which managed to make every episode enjoyable just to see what ridiculousness the characters would do next even if the actual episode is "filler".

Serious moments weren't anything to write home about. Most were pretty forgettable since the characters aren't really deep in any sort of way. Lots of dropped plot points too make the actual story structure come off as really messy. The humor is also very hit and miss for me with some things being too obnoxious and other bits being just obnoxious enough but I think the cartoony animation made it easier to swallow regardless.

Overall, for the studios first original work I think it was pretty good. Could be vastly improved but overall it left me satisfied.
Speaking of SHAFT. What original works do they have again? I would comment on them but I just realized most of the SHAFT I have seen has been adaptions.

You want me to explain the subtle techniques that make Takeshi Honda a great animator using his Kill la Kill cut... You actually asked me this question? What a fucking retard.
http://sakuga.yshi.org/post/show/6930/animated-fabric-hair-henshin-kill_la_kill-takeshi_

Squash and stretch when the titties jiggle, when the straps lock her tits down, the subtle movements of her ass when the thong is pulled tight, the bending of Senketsu's fabric as it's roped around Ryuuko.

The anticipation when monster Senketsu is ready to bite down on her, when his eyes are building energy to burst forth from her chest, or when Ryuuko is curled up ready to explode into her final pose.

the staging when she takes that pose is magnificent. Every action is pose to pose, and each movement flows into the next, overlapping the next to create a dynamic movement that you can't take your eyes off.

The movement is done is graceful arcs, and is exaggerated beatifully to create imaginative effects only possible in animation, such as the tight camera spin. Ryuuko's body behaves realistically, and every action she takes has a follow through. Like when she aggressively poses, she doesn't simply freeze, but her body reacts and settles after her energy is expended, and finally, every piece of it looks like a solid object in space

GET. FUCKED.

Every now and again there comes a series preceded by such immense hype and such widespread buzz, that nearly the entirety of the anime community tunes in for the first episode. The hype can carry even a mediocre show to vertigo-inducing heights when it comes to popularity and ratings. This is likely what occurred with the otherwise fairly below-average Kill la Kill. Presumably, had it been exactly the same series but made by a less notable studio, the show would have fallen under the radar of most of its current audience. Perhaps the bar had been set too high by the excellent Gurren Lagann, or perhaps studio Trigger ran out of creativity after their most successful series, but whatever the case Kill la Kill fell far beneath my expectations. The series is not just awkward, poorly written, shoddily animated, and badly paced, but aggressively so.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that an idle man in possession of a Crunchyroll account must be in want of a good anime. Kill la Kill, while it has its upsides, is not a good anime, and certainly not what an idle man such as myself wanted. First among its slew of negatives is the pacing; it’s all over the place. Sometimes the show skips across great lengths of time with next to no explanation, while other times entire episodes are spent on a single fight, Dragonball Z-style. It seems some parts of the series were written as though it were made to be thirteen episodes long, and others were written as if it were part of a fifty episode epic. It’s off-putting and outright odd. The pacing is remarkable not for the directorial expertise exhibited by it, but for the lack thereof.

>Inferno Cop and the now legendary Kill la Kill

>>
So who are you going to pit Bones up against OP?
>>
>>122956287
(cont..)

The pacing is, however, the least of one’s worries while watching the mess that is Kill la Kill. Were it not for the excellent soundtrack, I’d venture to say that the redeeming qualities of the show are few and far between. Shoddy is the best word to describe Kill la Kill‘s animation. Shoddy and haphazard. Shadows are often left an unnatural pitch black, and the backgrounds are largely poorly detailed and unappealing with their slap-dash construction and dreary colors. The academy where a good part of the show takes place consists almost entirely of various shades brown, grey, and dull blue. That’s not to say a show needs to be entirely vibrant and colorful, nor am I implying that the character designs of Kill la Kill don’t make up for the boring environments, but some more interesting venues would not go unappreciated. The use of stock footage doesn’t much help matters; the same transformation sequence can be found in almost every episode, and after a while it becomes rather grating.

What’s more, the amount of deus ex machina used in the show is simply astonishing. Very little gets done without the main protagonist gaining some unexpected, unexplained new ability that magically changes the tide of battle. It inspires precious little admiration for the writers. The show tries to be a sort of Dragonball-Z/Gurren Lagann hybrid, but fails to do what either of those shows did right. It completely lacks the originality of Gurren Lagann, and in comparison to that series Kill la Kill just seems like a soulless cash-in by a studio that has made shows that had some real heart. I know Trigger can do better than this; they have done better than this, and it’s very disappointing to see how far they’ve fallen. Despite my love for this particular studio, however, I can’t bring myself to say that their most recent project is anything but twenty-four episodes of puerile nonsense.

Madoka might not be the greatest thing ever, but the fact that people ACTUALLY think generic horseshit like Monogatari is the best thing SHAFT has ever done is pretty telling of the intellect of your average anime consumer. And I say consumer, because you don't get to be a true connoisseur of art when you're doing nothing but digesting a product that serves as fodder for you dick.

Bake is especially great, combining very odd visuals and presentation like surreal backgrounds and shots drawn in different artstyles with extremely unique soundtrack that fit(which both were tuned down in Nise already) with interesting and witty characters just talking and bantering.
The character relationships were interesting and mysterious. MC actually got a girlfriend and they also it together which a rarity in anime
It's unique, it's fun, it's comfy, it's atmospheric, it's great.

While the series was butchered as it went on turning into a generic harem by introducing sisters only existing for pandering, Bat started talking and Snail fell in love, it also had its moments like Kaiki and Cat's character growth so saying "but the fact that people ACTUALLY think generic horseshit like Monogatari is the best thing SHAFT has ever done is pretty telling of the intellect of your average anime consumer" is pretty damn ironic and pretentious.

Threads like this really make me wish I could see user IPs. Give trigger 5 years of production and then make this thread again. KLK was entertaining but it's plot was not memorable at all.

SHAFT's best animation is Pani Poni Dash because it is the embodiement of their referential, otaku oriented style. Monogatari series is memorable stylistically and in dialogue, but the fundamental premise is weak and pandering. I really liked Madoka because of how story and character driven it was. Not many contemporary anime can match up with that. I also liked the aesthetic. I saw the tv rips several years ago and should probably rewatch the BD sometime. SZS was entertaining but IMO the material didn't adapt as well as PPD. Sketch was one of the most comfy shows I've ever seen. SHAFT makes some unique content. I hope they continue to do so in the future.

Return to your roots and bully your peers until someone shows potential, of course. Then take that someone under your wing.
