Can we all agree that Shaft is the best animation studio of this century?
>>
>>133822715
Yes, and Sasami-san is their magnum opus.
>>
Fuck no.
>>
>>133823001
Then which studio do you propose?
Please don't say Madhouse, as your opinion would be discarded.
>>
The concept of "animation studio" has not even existed for a century.

I already told you, you fucking nigger! My words are absolute! Ufo-tan a best.

The animation in the monogatari series is average, but the art and sound direction are phenomenal.

Why do people dislike Shaft? I understand why they may not like people gushing about it, but some people seem to actually dislike the studio
>>
>>133825717
Not even the best studio to do Fate

I think it has more to do with hating things that are popular or preconceived notions of pretentiousness

At least, it's one of the few studios that does more than just adapt but also add a lot of stylistic elements. Between KyoAni that converts everything to the 2012 KY style, Madhouse that does nothing more than a simple copy/paste of the original material with pretty animation, BONES who fucks almost everything up with QUALITY, Whitefox who doesn't improve at all, SHAFT is a sure value.

If only they came back to the artistic direction of Bake, that would be nice.
>>
>>133822715
Yes, I think I can agree to that. Most of my favourite anime have been produced by SHAFT, I think it's safe to say I like them quite a bit.
>>
>>133830152
>At least, it's one of the few studios that does more than just adapt but also add a lot of stylistic elements.
It's not really about the studio, but the staff working on the show.

What?

I see you don't know a single thing about anime production

Kyoani is the best because they invented moe
>>
Not if we are strictly talking about animation. Gotta agree with this anon >>133829931

Feel free to post anything from Shaft or Kyoani that beats OPM.

You literally can't.

they didn't make amagi brilliant park

Literally every Kyoani show looks better than 95% of anime, and they actually pay their animators a living wage.

Agree.

SZS, Arakawa Under the Bridge and Hidamari Sketch are some of my favorite anime and they are made by Shaft.

Let's judge them on original works then.

So it's Tamako Market vs. Madoka.

>>133833908
the writing in tamako market is generic, but it would pass with flying colors in literally every other category
>>
>>133834048
The TV series was garbage, though.
>>
>>133832768
How much does SHAFT pay its employees to make PowerPoint presentations?
>>
>>133833908
Tamako, easily. Both are far from perfect, but Tamako was way more solid. Plus Love Story is fantastic.
>>
>>133834048
Except that it wasn't in any aspect.

What's up with SHAFT's backgrounds? I'm not sure how to describe it. Kinda flat and postmodern like it's always trying to be symbolic. Looks pretty as wallpaper though.

>this Century?

then Mad House or Production IG easliy

Paranoia Agent
IGPX Immortal Grand Prix

Two original series without going over the godlike movie and series adaptions heads and tales above anything Shat has made EVER
>>
>>133834709
>without going over the godlike movie and series adaptions heads and tales
Huh?
>>
>>133834777

Satoshi Kon Films
Mamoru Hosoda Films
Ghost in the Shell
Series No Moribito
Kill Bill

I can keep going
>>
>>133834709
I haven't seen IGPX, but Shaft has four or five shows easily better than Paranoia agent.
>>
>>133834872
Did you really just try to pass off Kill Bill as an anime?
>>
>>133834872
No, I mean, I couldn't understand what you were trying to say, but I might have an inkling of an idea now. Nevermind.
>>
>>133834255
and at least one animation style change or monochrome cut.

I really liked it, too.

The style is amazing and it feels slightly nostalgic for me.

>>133834937

Um rewatch Kill Bill dumb fuck Production IG did a whole segment for the film
>>
Just going to say I'd put Shaft at the bottom of the list. Not the very bottom (unless we were talking about the bigger studios then yes probably the bottom). Their animation is so boring and lazy to be blunt.
>>
>>133834953
SZS
PPD
Hidamari Sketch
Monogatari (even Nise)

Paranoia Agent really isn't that good.
>>
>>133834994
I know, you faggot, but that doesn't make it anime. Frosty the Snowman isn't anime either. And before you say "it still counts," no, it doesn't, we're talking about their anime, not outsourced work they did for a Western movie.

When on what episode?

SHAFT used to be notoriously bad at sticking to their schedule.
