>MUH OLD ANIMES

Most anime were either some kid's show/very family friendly/ for actual girls/ Some run of the mill Mecha trying to copy Gundam/Macross or some one shot OVA.
>>
Anime creators in the 80s liked cute girls, GAR AND scifi, had passion while also having japan at its best back in the 80s/90s.

It's evident that there's wonderful work in modern times too with things such as Tatami Galaxy, Casshern Sins and Texhnolyze being of note but damn the industry overall is trying hard without actually seemingly liking anything but cute shit/trying to make money of otaku.

>>124877675
this type of motion seems really uncanny because the software that does the motion smoothing seems to be poorly optimized. Likely because they can't afford the good software/ animators used in real movies. Rotoscoped or CG can look great but it ends up costing more than hiring slaves.

If the operator stopped it at that point then it means he needed it like that to perform a certain operation. There are reasons why people need special licenses to operate heavy machinery.

I couldn't care less about a masterpiece or animation quality, a light hearted SoL or romcom with decent characters works for me.

Keep it coming Japan.

>>124875633
Why the fuck are you still complaining about this, what would you expect them to do? Making anime is not very profitable at all, if they don't do this shit they would have a high chance of suffering losses. Going with a high budget unique series is like flipping a coin, you can never know if it will be successful enough to turn in a profit. Companies almost went bankrupt trying to do this. All they can do is either pander to hardcore fans with whatever seems to be the thing at the moment or try to reach a wider audience, which is a lot riskier but can turn in better profit if successful. Either way you faggots are complaining.

>>124884069
Yeah, because realism is the goal of fiction, right?
>>
>>124884099
That's not what's being talked about. See >>124883584

The term "moe" only came into popular usage around the turn of the millennium, the very late 90s and early 00s. Prior to that, the same basic concept was called "kawaii" by anime fans, or the "culture of cute".

There are nuances to the word moe that only otaku care about, for most people it's a vague term you can apply to any series with cute girls.

>>124884241
There's a large number of people who believe that, in both Japan and the west. Invariably they are people who have pretensions about the "importance of fiction" and often crave the approval of intellectuals and snobs.

I think for Miyazaki, it's more that his aesthetics run toward old fashioned humanistic storytelling and modern anime culture is too insular and cut off from mainstream society to really connect with that.

Literary fiction is a bit different from film or animation in terms of what people strive for, but you're right about short fiction elitism in particular being very abstracted and irreverent these days. Still, there's a pervasive assumption that in order for fiction to be good it must somehow reflect reality in form or in content.

And if you press really hard about why that is, you'll find the reasoning has nothing to do with aesthetics and everything to do with some cobbled together philosophy about fiction.

Originality is extremely overrated, and most anime do not even try to be original. You still do get a few original anime and manga that dare to be a little different, but most follow proven formulas and just riff on those.

Not really. You can complain about it all being the same shit, but there's about 4x more anime being produced now due to cost reduction from digital animation, and likewise there's a much bigger variety.

It's all by analogy to our reality, though. Like, a unicorn doesn't exist, but I could talk about it, right. However, I would probably say it's a horse with a horn, or maybe an arrangement of such-and-such particles in such a way, but that's still a description relying on our reality - on horses or particles existing. Outside of necessary truths, our language stems from our experience of reality and refers to things in reality, so we can't say anything else that isn't grounded in reality.

An aesthetic discussion in anime should focus on how effective its components are. If something works or doesn't work, if something is appealing, then try to explain why, or if its disagreeable, try to figure out why.

If ultimately your dislike of something boils down to
>it's unrealistic
Then we arrive back at one of my original points: why is that bad?
>>
>>124887275
I'm not so sure our language HAS to refer to something which does exist, clearly the existence of something is indepedent of our ability to describe it
>>
>>124887286
>it's not irrelevant as well
Again I ask: why is a lack of realism bad? There's this heavy implication that it is, yet there's no follow up reasoning. You just assume I'll agree that being "unrealistic" is an inherently negative attribute.

Saying something is "unrealistic" begs the question: what's the aesthetic value inherent in realism?
>>
>>124887493
Fuck.
>>
>>124887600
>>124887714
Also I want to clarify something: I'm not saying realism has not aesthetic value, that's not what I'm implying. I'm asking you to justify your opinion with aesthetic arguments rather than an implied argument from authority where reality is greater than fiction.

Essentially prove to me you're arguing aesthetically and not just using top-down philosophical reasoning.

>>
>>124887659
To be honest, I don't know what you're getting at. I'm saying that the inability of fiction to be completely ungrounded in reality has less to do with the limitations of the human mind and more to do with the limitations of language - if I could conceive of something completely unconnected to our reality, I would not be able to refer to it or describe it.
>>
>>124887892
I say first that you are an idiot for dismissing everyone who writes on a certain theme when there are vast differences in style and ability between them, and second that you had better not be calling Woolf an absurdist.
>>
>>124887821
I'm using this post >>124884069 as my conception of the opposing view point, so I guess for my argument "realism" means "reasonably comparable to what you might find in real life."

Or maybe something like "not contrary to common wisdom or accepted facts".

It's not a very literary or rigorous definition, but it's one I see thrown around a lot when ordinary people call this or that "unrealistic" in fiction.
>>
>>124887992
Is being nihilist cool to you? I guess it is because it's on the analogy of your life.

tl;dr: Realism is real life 3DPD. Anime is 2D.

Even real life actors play unrealistic roles on their movies. So, stop asking for realism. If every fictional character were realistic there would be no Dragon Ball, no Superman, no Star Trek, no Lord of the Rings, no Hamlet. Fictional characters are inherently unrealistic, because that's what fiction is about.

>stop asking for realism

Why? Both realistic and unrealistic fiction is good.
>>
>>124888756
Not exactly - if it's impossible by definition, then that's different; . I mean, for example, qualia. Our language cannot describe what "purple" looks like, because "purple" has nothing to do with reality. Words refer to things in reality, and you learn their meanings through experience of that reality, so of course you can't write fiction that isn't somehow grounded in that reality, since there are no words for it, and even if you invented any, there would be no way to communicate them to others.

But "inventing words" is not something new in fiction.

I don't see how you can argue that Camus is a nihilist. I mean, really, almost no novelist is an authentic nihilist (maybe Cioran), but Camus isn't even close.

The anime industry would survive without otaku. The Japanese economy just needs to get better so that Otakus can find jobs.

The excuse for not having engaging, compelling plots, situations, and characters, in a nutshell.

>It doesn't have to be good, it's made up anyway.

There are good and bad realistic elements, and there are good and bad fantastical elements. Most of the time, poorly done fantastical elements aren't redeemed by the default of the fantasy being genre.

>Implying otakus are all hikis

>>124889377
As I said, the issue with what I'm talking about is that even if you invented a word for it, you'd have no way to communicate it to people. I mean, if I say "hilk" means any crab that has been out of the water for over four hours, then you know what that means now. But if I'm talking about purple, and I say "merst" is how I personally experience purple, you don't gain that same understanding, do you?

He fucking hated nihilism, and his whole thing was that people must revolt against absurdity.

>>124889562
Are all hikis otaku?
>>
>>124889738
I think it's reasonable to assume that the probability of being an otaku is higher given that your are a hiki

This thread is stupid. Anime, especially tv anime or ovas made for adults, has always been for and by otaku. All the moe haters here are just nostalgic for a handful of shows but if they went back and rewatched those shows now I bet they would still find elements of those things they say are ruining anime now.
>>
1. Moe is evil
2. There was no moe in Texhnolyze
3. Therefore, every show every season should be Texhnolyze.

There are still a good few recently that have sold well (NNB, GochiUsa, KinMoza). But you're right that it's a myth that CGDCT always sells.

>>124875633

Um the industry hasn't changed at all, they just aren't producing shows you like but then again no one in Japan gives a shit about you.
