Why do every Madhouse show is an insta-classic? It's not like other studios where their shows are completely forgotten in the next season
>>
Because they adapt highly acclaimed manga that people already think is really good
>>
>>124092104
This plus they tend to stick to the source material very closely. Their adaptions are usually panel-for-panel recreations.
>>
Because it's the best. Everyone who thinks other way can go fuck themselves.

>>124092563
Well?

Why do is they?
>>
>>124092405
I like it too anon but calling it an instant classic and pretending it wasn't forgotten is a bit of a stretch

Not to mention the whole >>124092287 thing about ignoring everything that came after the first arc

I didn't bring it up but there's also Mahouka which is garbage and is something that can never and will never be considered a classic but unfortunately I can't claim it was forgotten the season after or even now.
>>
>>124092022
>Why do every Madhouse show is an insta-classic
But they don't is? Nothing they've done recently has been that good.
>>
>>124092588
Because they don't make you think it be like it is, but it do.
>>
>>124092645
I think Ore Monogatari!! will be an instant classic but otherwise I agree with you
>>
>>124092022
I'm pretty sure the average SHAFT or KyoAni show of the last five years is more remembered than the average Madhouse show from the same time period.
>>
>>124092719
I can't recall whatever aired in the same time as Kaiji S2
>>
>>124092719
all I can think about SHAFT that's not Monogatari is Nisekoi because it was an overhyped newfag garbage so I see it everywhere

KyoAni hasn't made something remarkable since K-ON and the suzumiya movie
>>
>>124092791
Nichijou

Definitely more remembered than Kaiji S2
>>
>>124092875
Also much more polarizing.
Polarizing shows are usually the ones that are the easiest to remember.

You are clearly underexposed, anon. The fact that you can't remember Madoka is proof enough.

>>124092234
I don't think anyone who watched Mahou Sensou will ever forget it.

Nobody really watched Mahou Sensou though

NGNL and Mahouka are truly masterpieces.

We all wish we didn't.

Except Nichijou and Hyouka which were both superior shows and Free and Chuu2 which were a shitton more polarizing than anti-moe faggots could ever make K-On out to be

>>124093093
They are the best, simply the best.

I was here while it was airing man, but I wasn't about to pick up a show that looked bad and then was bad, and then only got worse, only to partake in a masochistic orgy on /a/

Even if you want to try telling me that "everyone" watched I can try to pretend that's not a huge lie but are you going to tell me it's an instant classic?

>>124093274
Sunday Without God

As in, we try to forget. Because the first arc is fantastic and the rest is shit by comparison. Hence the "great 3 episode OVA series" joke.

It's not even different opinions that he's complaining about. It's some guy trying to think of SHAFT shows and coming up blank. It's like if you asked me what I thought of Gainax and I said, "The only show of theirs I can name is Evangelion."

It is. It's a production clusterfuck at the highest standard, even its scriptwriter had no idea what happened at the end. It's a part of Madhouse never forgettable darkest history along with Neuro.
>>
>>124093788
>etc
>>
>>124093472
Maybe that's your experience but it's certainly not mine. You really need to stop projecting.

That season was chock-full of awful shows. Aside from Mahou Sensou, there was Super Sonico the Animation, Wizard Barristers, Nobunagun, Nourin, Buddy Complex, among others. Watching a few of those was enough for me. I wished to keep my sanity.

If I'm a newfag now, and was a newfag one year ago when Mahou Sensou aired, and was a newfag two years ago when Kaminai aired, and was a newfag the year before and the year before that, I guess what I should really resign myself to is being eternally a newfag.
>>
>>124093861
Yes, exactly. I've been a newfag for most of 4chan's life.
>>
>>124092022
>Why do every Madhouse show is an insta-classic?
They made the worst anime of all time (Mahou Sensou).
>>
>>124093939
That's not Glasslip
>>
>>124093861
Jesus Christ, even Pupa aired that season.

Is Winter 2014 the worst season of all time?
>>
>>124093939
They've made significantly worse shows than that. At least they never tried a Chaos;Head anime, at least.

I couldn't handle the show's pacing, over halfway through and the full "Ha Na Ya Ma Ta" group hadn't been fully formed yet. It's like it was eternally in its prologue.
>>
>>124092022
Well you could say we haven't forgotten Chäos;Head. Hard to forget that one.
>>
>>124092022
Because everything they work on is high budget and well animated.

You can make literally anything good if you pump enough money into and the art direction is good. This is the only reason anyone watches Ghibli movies, the writing and characters suck.

Even Susugoi Onni-sama and No Game No Life managed to be at least mildly interesting for the 2 episodes I watched them for because the art was nice to look at despite the fact that they have some of the dumbest characters and plots in recent history.
>>
>>124093083
I really wish I fucking hadn't. I just couldn't tear my eyes away, it was like being unable to look away from a trainwreck. What added fuel to the fire was that even the LN author admitted Mahou Sensou shouldn't have gotten an anime.
>>
Madhouse and Production IG is very overrated by newfags and /v/ crossborders that think because they made few shows they like, they are godlike and produce hit after hit.

90% of Madhouse shows are poor garbage. Albeit, Madhouse did many shows, so there are some good just because of statistics.

Production IG is main fujoshit studio in industry. KyoAni, with just Free!, is still far away from their gay pedigree.

>You can make literally anything good if you pump enough money into and the art direction is good.

Another tripcunt added to the filter.
>>
>>124092022

>Why do every Madhouse show is an insta-classic?
Except how 75% of their shows have been forgotten over the years. Try looking into all the stuff they've done and not just the 10 or so shows you've heard on /a/.
>>
>>124094287
I loved it. It's one the most fun and energetic shows to air in recent memory.

The OP is pure gold too.

>>124094513
Production IG is overrated the way Madhouse is? I've never noticed.

I watched a bit of Haikyuu!! and it was actually really good. I'm not about to look down upon them for producing fujoshit just because it's fujoshit.
>>
>>124094650
>>124094381
Well it was the OP I really liked actually. My bad.
>>
>>124094124
The only other shows worth mentioning (besides others brought up previously) were Zvezda which went nowhere, slowly, WCW which was full of disappointing CGI, and the mostly meh first half of Space Dandy

Still not as bad a winter season as 2010 or 2013
>>
>>124094665

>Production IG is overrated the way Madhouse is?
Niehter studio is overrated. They both just have a small minority who hype them.

The only studio I can think of which is truly overrated is Shaft. Who seem to have a huge following of people who just defend everything they do. Even when they complain about certain shows being bad, they will still defend it to death because 'its just Shaft being Shaft'.
>>
>>124094470
>Susugoi Onni-sama
God damn.
>>
>>124094739
Winter 2013 made me abandon anime for all of 2013.
>>
>>124094802
I haven't really met anyone who'll defend Mekaku.

I've met people who'll throw all the blame of it being shit on Jin, but not who'll try to defend the show.
>>
>>124094842

They don't defend the show. They just defend the studio. But I guess the same can be said for KyoAni fans. But at least KyoAni shows still have amazing art production, even when the story and characters put you to sleep.
>>
>>124094936
>But at least KyoAni shows still have amazing art production, even when the story and characters put you to sleep.
Except for Amaburi. I wonder why the production values for that were so abysmal compared to the typical KyoAni show.
>>
>>124094936
I hear more from people trying to claim Kyoani damaged the industry.
>>
>>124095016

Which is a pretty dumb claim. Any complains about 'moe' can be traced to series before KyoAni even existed. Like Mahoromatic or Green Green.

And their increased production values have just spurred other production studios to improve their animation. The only thing KyoAni has hurt is the fans expectations of what they need to achieve. Basically, KyoAni is never going to surpass the hype of Haruhi or K-On.

Madhouse made two of my favorite shows of all time. But they've still made a large majority of lackluster shows.
>>
>>124092022
PhotoKano is the best show they ever made.
>>
>>124092441
>they put in a lot of effort
They put some effort, just not a lot. The best they do is making sure things don't look like absolute shit. They are pretty good at avoiding animating things.
>>
>Why do every Madhouse show is an insta-classic?
But that's old Gainax
>>
>>124096321

The fact that you have to add 'old' to GAINAX proves the studio has made some bad shows. So it can't be a replacement for what OP is saying.

You could say Madhouse made nothing but amazing shows if you only limit it to the years 1997-2001.
>>
>>124096529
MADHOUSE is also old

Ever since the NTV thing they're just another shitty freelance hiring studio with no identity whatsoever
>>
>>124096529
>if you only limit it to the years 1997-2001.
I count way more forgettable shows than amazing ones during those years.
>>
>>124096597

>MADHOUSE is also old

Good job not understanding the point at all.
>>
>>124096749
How am I missing the point
Old Gainax = every one of their originals was the talking point of the year
New Gainax = completely different studio without all the key people that ran Old Gainax

Old Madhouse = still inconsistent
New Madhouse = utter shit
>>
>>124096791

>How am I missing the point
OP claimed all Madhouse shows were instant classic, which people are pointing out is wrong.

You're trying to claim the same studio made good shows by cherry picking a time frame. And is in no way comparable to OP claim. You're basically an idiot all around.
