Why does Everyone loves Shaft, Inc. ?
>>
Man I thought those were all tomatoes at first

>>124190812
Because they are the best in improving the source material.

See Nisekoi or Cooking Graffiti.

This. I didn't enjoy Nisakoi manga. Kinda got bored of it. Then Shaft does the anime and suddenly it's all fun.
>>
>>124190956
They don't improve the source material, they ruin it. They ruined Nisekoi, Graffiti and worst of all the ruined Monogatari and not-vocaloid!
>>
>>124190812
They don't.

Graffiti is full of shitty shaft maymays. Idiotic gestures and artsy backgrounds are horrible. Shaft itself never improved since bake.

Shaft adapting Mekaku City Actor is a mistake. Shaft is a mistake. Shaft a shit.

Koufuku was pretty conservative in the visual department if you look through the staff list of the episodes, it was pretty much a training programm - fresh directors in combination with experienced storyboarders.

Though it was still pretty good adaption and they turned a 4-koma with a gimmick into a nice SoL anime.

After Shaft aborted what was suppose to be the next Sword Art Online, Aniplex decided not to work with them anymore.

So now Shaft is free from the tyranny of Aniplex's money and can go back to making masterpieces like Negima.

>>124193791
It's bullshit.
>>
>>124193791
Nothing, but giving something to Shaft that would have been better with any other studio did seriously make Aniplex lose a ton of potential profit.

There's a chance that Aniplex is too stupid to realize it though.

No. They will definitely animate Kizu but that is all we can say.
We only finished around 66% of Nisio works in any case, it could be in years.
>>
>>124194348
>worse than Mekakucity
Literally not even possible. No anime has ever managed to REDUCE the source material's sales before.
>>
>>124194578
Did it actually do that?
I need source, because that sounds hilarious.
>>
>>124194608
It doesn't.

Mekaku wasn't an adaptation either. It was some Jin micromanaged all the various multi-format releases, although he can't neither write a LN nor the screenplay of an anime.
>>
>>124194783
>It doesn't.
You mean "It doesn't sound hilarious"; or do you mean "it didn't lower the sales"?
>>
>>124194959
How can something lower the sales?
>>
>>124194783
At least half the content is adaption, and you can't into English.

Is Jin also some kind of wizard who placed a cursed on his series, which makes it impossible for anybody to insult it without making themselves look like an idiot?
>>
>>124195078
Say, for example,

10k
10k
[anime starts airing]
8k
7k
6k
5k
4k
[anime ends]
10k
10k

Although the recovery is optional, I guess.

But people shit on KyoAni all the time. Hell, there was a group dedicated to shitposting in the KnK threads when it was airing.
>>
>>124195469
Why do Shaft and Kyoani always get compared on /a/? Anime they usually produce is neither similar enough to have people shitpost about them being direct competitors to each other, nor are their anime different enough to cause moe vs. manime-esque shitposting.

Shaft, putting references in their shows?

No, couldn't be.
>>
>>124195465
But wouldn't the anime boost affect the earlier volumes and not the most recent one? Why would somebody buy 5 volumes of something they've only seen like 3 anime episodes of?
>>
>>124196083
>Most creative
>reusing same shit style since before even Shinbo joined SHAFT and when KyoAni animated for him
All good directors with style quit. Even people responsible for "Shaft visual style" quit and do same in Deen and other studios. Shinbo literally rehashes same shit over and over and over and over.

No creativity at all, no development - whatever visual gimmic people jerk off to, was done by Shinbo already 1000 times over.

Their last ambitious project was Vampire Bund, but after its failure seems they decided to play it safe and just keep the style generic and shitty.
>>
>>124196258
>generic
Just because they do it a lot doesn't make it generic.
>>
>>124196252
>But wouldn't the anime boost affect the earlier volumes and not the most recent one?

Because they get interested in the franchise. Though the franchise already suffered a significant drop-off before the anime hype so the dropping sales for volume 6 didn't surprise anyone.
>>
>>124196258
>Their last ambitious project was Vampire Bund
No my friend, that would be Madoka.
>>
Do subs matter for this? coalgirls is the most seeded.
>>
Kubrick a shit, he did the same visual gimmicks in all his movies!

Hitchcock is also overrated!
>>
>>124190812
>>124190956
The bright coloring in Nisekoi is quite appealing for some reason.
>>
>>124196367
Madoka has absolutely nothing new aside from Inu Curry designs. It had moments that looked slightly better than they usual shows, since they hired freelancers for that (i.e. Umetsu at Homura time stop scene) - but it was absolutely generic as Shinbo direction/visuals go.

Just go rewatch Moonphase, its better anyway.

Looking at Tsukimonogatari and Koufuku - even "bad Shaft" is still better at directing than most other animation studios.

Espencially Tsukimonogatari was top notch again.

Most shows they did are pretty unique compared to most, Different approach to shows than most.
