They're a bit too happy staying in their comfort zone IMO. All they're really doing is ensemble cast hijinks in a highschool setting across a variety of genres. I wish they'd venture a bit farther away and do entirely different settings. Scifi adventure, or something set in a university, fantasy that's not sooter in out world, or something with an entirely adult cast. I don't have anything against highschool settings, but Kyoani does nothing but those.

I'm not sure, to be honest.

I'd assume net, because with 150 employees, a gross profit of 1.3 million means that they're getting a slave wage and I doubt the studio with one of the most enviable working conditions in the industry would be able to keep staff happy when paying them peanuts.

Does anyone in this thread even realize KyoAni has the highest average sales out of any studio?

I still don't rate CG's first episode as highly as most people. It had some really nice touches, sure, but it didn't click with me as much as it did others. The animation was pretty good, though.

>HUURRDUURRR A>B
Animation production is not a competition between the staff. Everyone contribute to the overall quality of the show.
Kadowaki is a better designer than Kamoi?
So fucking what?
Kigami is probably the best animator at KyoAni but that doesn't mean he can carry the production alone.
With KyoAni handling more projects at a time, they need more experienced staff than ever.
Losing several experienced animators in a short period of time can only hurt the quality of their production.

>And nothing of value was lost. Kadowaki Miku is a better character designer than her anyway
Kamoi is a talented animation director, never forget this.

>Kyoani still have plenty of animation heavyweights, Ueno, Sekiichi and Ishidate all comes to mind
Ishidate is busy with directing KnK. How many animation cuts did he draw last year? 20?

>According to most of /a/, every Kyoani show has Horiguchi's designs. Her leaving does nothing
Same with Kamoi, she's not just a character designer, she's one of the best animation directors at KyoAni.
>>
For the retard who kept reiterating Kyoani isn't going to bankrupt, stop being retarded. Almost everyone knows that without you being so butthurt.

Hey, they lost Yamakan, which was probably their biggest talent at the time, and their shows today still look better than ever. So you'll have to excuse me if I think losing a few "up and coming" talents results in little more than a scratch on Kyoani's overall output.

Also, still waiting for that source of Horiguchi leaving Kyoani for good anon. Burden of proof is on you and one year later you still haven't given any hard evidence.
>>
>>123321034
>Also how is KnK so bad?
The ending was unsatisfying. I like what they did in ep 10 and 11, the sunflower field was beautiful and all but the ending completely ruined it for me.
>>
>>123320878
The last TV anime they had airing was Fall's Amaburi and that wasn't particularly heavy if you look at the general quality of the show compared to KyoAni's usual output. You can tell it was a low priority, as they'd have also been doing KnK movie two at the time.

>>123320949
>Their schedule might be better than the rest of the industry but still rough enough that an animator called it "hell". I wouldn't say it's "comfy" at all.
>Asking what her typical day was like, the blunt (and inadvertently hilarious) answer was: she gets in at 0930, works, has an hour for lunch, works, then leaves at 1830. This of course was a leader for the question as to whether KyoAni indulges in crunch time, or "killer weeks", which Jonathan explained was almost a policy for studios in Tokyo, with the women and married staff allowed to catch the last train home, while the single men were expected to work through the night.

>Naoko responded by saying that image of sleeping at your desk was so cool! But KyoAni was nothing like that and sometimes worked slightly longer hours but on the whole not. There was the unspoken question as to whether this was simply the company voice but it's certainly hard to fault the studio for its continuously superb quality of output, a question an audience member would follow up on later.

Its up to you whether or not to believe it. But considering it has been said time and time again that they're basically one of the most enviable studios in the industry with regards to working conditions, I'd assume it isn't anywhere near as bad as say, A-1 literally working somebody to death.

Well, I mean, that used to be Kyoani. And, I mean, something like Tamako's movie proves they have talented people there who can put out quality stuff still, but I'm past the point where the name "kyoani" already makes me optimistic. They've lost that faith.

Haruhi is shit and you know it.

Kyoani has been getting better and better. Their animators have become more experienced, so they are masters of fluid and cute movement and sakuga. Their shows are cotton candy and icecream for the eyes.

Shirobako was nice and all, but I'd rather have that.

When will Kyoani try to move away from using k-on's chararacter design as a base for every single show they make? I get that their animators are used to it so they can get more average quality with it, but they are litterally the only sutdio that reuses character designs this much
>>
But anon, Nichijou was a masterpiece. And Chuuni first season was also really enjoyable.
K-on had catchy music.

Though I must say that I fucking hated Hyōka.
And I couldn't care less about the new Haruhi filler. I guess the only ones that cared were people that REALLY liked disappearance Nagato.

>>123324320
Well yeah, OVAs usually have more fanservice.
I haven't seen it yet because there no BD rips, but from what I saw it's just comedy without any shitty drama, so it's probably much better than most of the main show.
>>
>>123324474
the chart doesn't change the fact that the character designs are based on k-on ones. It doesn't completely differetiate from it and it only branches out at best

It's not KyoAni's fault that you have autism and difficulty distinguishing faces.

I don't see how people say they're still good then point to sales as if that's an indicator of anything but decent pandering (Free! being the most blatant example).

The writing on their shows have been of a significantly lower quality ever since they started streamlining novel adaptions. If this new show is boring then I don't know how people will continue to defend them.

Ufotable makes decent-looking anime despite not actually having that much money.

High-budget anime frequently comes out looking terrible.

it's mainly production scheduling.
>>
>>123318582
It's not just them - basically every major studio has been inconsistent at best the last few years. There is no longer any studio that gets me hype when they announce a new project.
>>
>>123324790
>>123324768
I remember there once being a portrait gallery of all of the classmembers from K-On, with just their faces and no hair. It was pretty surprising how different each person was made. Most studios wouldn't go to those lengths, especially for irrelevant background characters.

Ufotable's animation is garbage. People are dazzled by the digital effects, but that doesn't make it good animation. If your only rebuttal is "it's popular," then you know I'm right, you just don't like that I am.

>>123325172
They abandoned DRRR because Narita sunk their favorite ship (which to be honest wasn't even sailing in the first place).

Free isn't a long-running series so of course the hype will go down. On the verge of dying KyoAni can just create another fujoshi-pandering series, make cute-grills-do-cute-things anime with fujomoney, rinse and repeat.

>>123325221
Firstly, that's an odd comparison because Kaiji is likely to only move people who are in or have been good-for-nothings.

Second, Hyouka's writing is for the easily entertaining. I wouldn't say that makes it bad, but having a vaguely interesting concept thinned out over the course of what, 22 episodes? It's liable to put some people right to sleep.

To be fair, ufotable's animation is above average and decent as far as anime goes, although that is not really saying much when you know how many shortcuts are taken with regards to animation in anime.

They get a decent blend of stills and occasional movement for the current focus character (i.e. the speaker) every few seconds, so that most people will not notice how static some of their scenes can be. Same goes with stuff like talking heads, most people don't realise that stuff like that is an animation shortcut.

Their digitial effects are some of the best in the industry and like you said, people are dazzled by them. Perhaps a bit too much, in that a shit load of effects and filters gets a lot of people who don't know what animation is, to regard such flashy effects as being enough.

I wouldn't say they are bad, but they are vastly overrated in the animation (movement of their characters) department, especially outside of action sequences, which do look fantastic.

>>123325343

To be fair, ufotable's animation is great which above standard anime's quality. But I just don't really like their shot angles-- sometimes it hits, sometimes it fails a hard. SHAFT are the best animation studio which has great shot angles, too bad SHAFT are fucked up really bad with their time schedule.

1) that would be as good as K-On!, i.e. great
2) Because this isn’t a lighthearted sol comedy, or at least it would not be the main focus.

>>123333694
It will be shit, they said they want less SoL comedy and more drama.

>>123333474
So you should.

You will only hurt yourself if you needlessly get your hopes up.
Remember Midori?

Except this time it's happening, we have the relationship chart and everything.
>>
>>123334615
The Japanese chart didn’t say !!!! YURI ZONE !!!
>>
>>123318825
The problem is they're raking in mad dosh for their light novel adaptation treadmill so that's all they're going to fucking do.
>>
>>123334653
Is that why they’re doing Euphonium?

Yes but Haruhi's also a shit show.

Because any show that treats male leads like femdomizable SHIT is a SHIT show.

I can see the het/yuri wars coming.

>>123334694
I would assume it was a back burner project pushed to the fore by an author (or authors) not wanting / negotiating for rights.
They may have easy access to these author's but they still have the final say. Rather than do nothing in the interim they'll do an original.
>>
>>123335118
It’s not like they’re dogmatic about this. They prefer to do their own stuff but when something like Euphonium comes along they’ll happily take it if they like it. The novel is set in Uji, they’re the perfect studio to do this.

> Original
There was Tamako, not much else.
>>
>>123333694
It will be more music and drama

>>123320106
KnK OVAs and specials are still not subbed. I think that speaks enough.

That's because somebody was making fun of the actual translated chart.
>>
>>123332037
Btw there's something I dont understand.

Why is Kyon attracted so much to Asashi but not to Haruhi?

They are both as hot as each other. Haruhi being better imo,
>>
>>123338752
In the books he comments on Haruhi being attractive all the time, it's just her personality he doesn't like. Asahina's personality makes it easier for him to fawn over her but I doubt he actually had any actionable intention of being with her any further than that.
>>
>>123318582
>What happened?

Nothing. They're exactly the same besides the fact that they now create even better looking shows. Mostly.
