This anime has posed the most difficult 'Left or Right' question ever in the history
I would have love to see Ponkan8 style animated with the current style.
Why did they switch to To Aru character designer? Is it because Ponkan8 was working on Shirobako?
Otherwise, Sensei is a best and the only answer.
Are you joking right now OP?
Hope Kawasaki gets a cameo in S2.
>It couldn't possibly be worse than S1
>implying S1 was bad
>giving a shit about the animation in a SOL that features little to no need for complex animation
It's just talking heads 90% of the time with basic movement, what matters is how the characters look.
I have no idea what this show is or who these wonderful ladies are, but I would go right.
Anon you stated that animation design doesn't matter very much to a sol
I stated that if you compare log horizon 1 which had very strong design choices to log horizon 2 you'd see any poor animation can kill a franchise.
Don't need complex animation, just need the studio to keep the QUALITY in check.
I agree the S2 character design is a lot improved but there is something in that old S1 design that I simply can't forget or hate...especially the way how Yui really looks 'bitch-like'
I see, thanks for clearing that up. However I'd argue against your analogy because unlike Yahari, LH has many scenes where animation does matter. It is based in an MMO setting that features combat and action, almost no one cried about S2's animation during the SOL portions they just cried about how QUALITY things were, which I don't believe qualifies.
If I'm wrong and it does qualify, then I see no problem with how Yahari did it, seeing as almost no one ever posts QUALITY pictures of S1, yet there's always tons of great shots whether it's fanservice or 8man memes. I do not ever recall Yahari S1 having consistency issues like LHS2 did with Serara and such, and again I have never seen anyone complain about it.
So my point is, no matter how much of an upgrade the animation/quality is for S2, it's a trivial amount unless we get scenes where action happens. I haven't read the LN yet since S2 is announced so I wouldn't know, but if it's anything like S1 where most of the action is very simple it's nothing important.
Just because people weren't complaining verbally about it doesn't detract from there being too many significant and awful design choices. /a/ from having log horizon threads daily to only being on the day an episode aired which is a very significant change. It was hard to find any likeable characters in season 2 because of this, everyone looked like shit.
At the basic level the composition of the frame matters first, since it takes precedence, then the character design, and then animation of actions. Most people can go without good animation of action via a motif, like Monogatri's filler scenes.
8man is literally the personification of /a/non
Yui wants to fuck him hard, like very hard
And those dam Yui's Yuis
>Why are people picking right?
Now you do the math
I still don't see how any of this applies to Yahari S1, you just keep talking about LH but there are varying levels of improvements. All I'm saying is Yahari S2 doesn't seem like an improvement to S1, and if it is, it's more of a trade off.
LHS2 was obviously a major downgrade, and part of it was due to how the source material looks shittier than S1's designs, which is arguably the same case as Yahari.
Actually pretty hard question now for me. Of course, Yui is the top tier gf material, and earlier I would chse her, but Yukino is really useful, he is someone worth helping, she is someone worth loving and caring and morover she can do shit, like any shit she can handle.
So I don't know, man.
Yui is objectively better.
>dumb as a tangerine
>huge smug mug bugs
>can have normal friends, life and activities
>no annoying lewd bitch sister or rich parents
On the other side there is a flat board, but 8m/a/n loves boys with wigs
You can't have the good without the bad.
>tfw dropped Railex at like episode 3 a long time ago so now I can enjoy these new designs without getting butthurt
Feels good to not have shit taste in chinese cartoons.
Left shits all over the right. Why would you rather have a loud annoying half-wit when you could have a dignified albeit serpent tongued princess with the voice of Saori Hayami.
Left wins on the economical and biological aspects without question. The rest is based on personal preference.
Personally I say left because she's less of an airhead than right.
