What is your favorite animation from 2015?
Also Bakemono no Ko had the best sakuga of the year, but sakugafaggots are too lazy to get their asses off their chairs to go to a movie theater or film festival, so of course they have no idea.
Didn't know someone also making sakuga thread...
By the way, I made new pastebin :
Ohira's cuts from Lupin >>134836158 is really good.
I still have to watch Miss Hokusai for Norio and Inoue.
Also, Kabaneri announcement supposed to be released today.
I know WIT is dying, but I hope at least Araki can grab Imai.
All ANN writers need to literally die.
Then someone will have enough motivation to make a real site that's not shitty, maybe.
Hopefully not one of those 20-something cunts who are too lazy to watch animation that they can't pirate online.
I'm really not interested in reading articles on sakuga by anyone other than animators. I still haven't read anything better than Peter Chung's posts on the AniPages forum tbqh families.
>I'm really not interested in reading articles on sakuga by anyone other than animators
Buy Anime Style then.
The worst one IMO is the one that isn't even 2015, and Shirobako, the facial expressions are way too exaggerated and forced, why would you even consider that shit when you could pick any anime movie from 2015 and get something better?
I wholeheartedly agree. Good to see someone with actually good taste.
the "subtle" (not really subtle) movements, the shimmering eyes etc. feel way too forced. It is exaggerated. It just doesn't look like real people, if you think it does, you probably watched too much anime.
Either way it looks pretty average (as do most the other clips anyway) compared to any 2015 film.
Best part is I'm not even a diehard sakugafag, only a mild one who can appreciate what makes a good scene.
I don't follow fake internet celebrities from the west, but is there a reason anyone reads that trash? The kind of people who'd read that article are probably serious about their hobby, and anyone who actually gives a shit about sakuga could see how full of shit the author is.
>feel way too forced.
Again, did you watch the show?
>It just doesn't look like real people, if you think it does, you probably watched too much anime.
When was the last time you saw an adult bawl their eyes out? I promise you there's nothing subtle about it. If you were talking about Zuka, I'd ask when was the last time you saw a VA deliver lines, as they get incredibly animated while speaking.
>Then someone will have enough motivation to make a real site that's not shitty, maybe.
And then you will complain about that site if it doesn't follow your opinions
A never ending cycle
>"IT'S TRUE BECAUSE I SAID SO!!!"
>It is exaggerated. It just doesn't look like real people, if you think it does, you probably watched too much anime.
Are you trying to be funny or are you genuinely retarded?
Again, have you watched the fucking show, and have you seen an adult burst into tears recently? I can answer yes to both questions, I don't think you can.
To speak in your degenerate language, it is forced animation. Those extra movements don't convey anything. Pretend I attached the oregairu hand meme as an image, thank you. And don't forget keyframe spamming.
Do you think I'm OP or something?
I'm not. I do think he's dumb for starting a sakuga thread with the link though.
Anyways, who here is excited for Thunderbolt? I can't wait to see Sunrise 1 in full force. I'm especially excited to see more of Hiroyoshi Takaya's cuts.
He's currently one of my favorite animators. He did what I think was the most well animated scene in Unicorn, and I found out that he did a lot of the better action scenes in G-reco.
Why wasn't this uploaded to the booru yet?
ANN please go and stay go
Yeah that list is fucking terrible I have no idea why the fuck the Shirobaka one is on there. It's a great scene but it's nothing special animation wise. There has been a lot of good Sakuga this year so that the fact that any show repeats on the list shows the guy that wrote it must not watch that much anime.
The Shirobako scene was really good, and the character animation helped frame it. I think what they were going for was with the list was including some scenes that weren't grand sweeping action shots.
That's a good thing, but doing repeats from Euphonium was fucking stupid.
I would hope no one actually reads ANN for anything other than major announcement confirmation. Every single one of their opinion pieces are trash and even worse their anime reviews.
I use them as a database for staff and VAs and nothing else.
I saw that they actually review individual episodes instead of just entire seasons of anime and realized it's just shitty clickbait like IGN.
I feel there are far too many good examples this year for it to be on a top 10 regardless of personal feelings during the scene. I don't find it all that impressive from strictly an animation standpoint, direction being another matter.
I agree with you 100% on that. Directing, voice acting, animation and the lines themselves made that scene what it was. If you're looking at pure animation there were certainly more deserving scenes for a spot on a top 10 list.
>Okada is killing robots...
And revolutionizing sakuga as we know it.
>Choosing OPM 1 over the sparring match in 5
Ep 1 has far more sakuga than ep 5. That was the outsourced episode if I remember correctly, so that ep is pretty unremarkable outside of the sparring match.
>being this much of a series hating faggot that you can't appreciate a good animator like Nozomu Abe's work
>Kekkai Sensen 1 over the boxing match
The boxing match didn't even have great animation. You'd seriously pick that over ep 1 with Yutapon?
>No Concrete Revolutio
Only thing you're definitely right about.
>Ep 1 has far more sakuga than ep 5.
They were going by scene, and that scene of episode 5 was far and away the best.
>blah blah Muh fateshit
Sorry, I had trouble seeing through the post production processing.
>Boxing match didn't have good animation
It had great animation and phenomenal choreography. It was a better action scene.
That bit was weird and random as shit.
>They were going by scene, and that scene of episode 5 was far and away the best.
I can respect that opinion but I don't think ep 1 is a bad choice either. I really like Kameda's scenes from ep 1.
>Sorry, I had trouble seeing through the post production processing.
I see, you're one of those retards.
>It had great animation and phenomenal choreography. It was a better action scene.
This is a straight up lie though. You can't seriously think this shit is better than Leonardo's slow motion run.
>but I don't think ep 1 is a bad choice either.
Episode 1 looked good, but the sparring match was godly, and was the correct choice for best cut.
>You're one of those
People with eyes?
I thought it was ok. Didn't love it.
Precure, Fate, and that KyoAni lesbofest are the only ones that immerse me. the others are too sporadic and use those Naruto snapped Sasuke neck animation tricks to make a quick flow with only a few frames, and Shirobako looks fucking average
Yes. Yutapon is a gateway sakuga of the worst kind. It's bad animation, a clusterfuck of smears and cubes that isn't very well done in any aspect, but which attempts to compensate for its weaknesses by adding in excessive shaky cam and IMPACT FRAMES. The normal animation fan can see this as the shit it is, and may enjoy it, hate it or be indifferent to it, but all the while recognizing that the animation itself, regardless of their opinion, is plain bad.
Seems like you don't have eyes if you think that mediocre cut I posted from the boxing match is actually better than Yutapon's cut on ep 1. And Nozomu Abe's work on Fate was also fantastic. If you can't appreciate his key animation because of some post production processing than you really don't have eyes.
>9 second cut from the boxing match
>Those disgusting CG effects
Where's the animation anon? Where's the fucking animation?
You're more concerned with listing animator names than actually looking at cuts. You're quite the tryhard.
Do you? That Fate scene was complete shit. "There may have been a few nice frames if you look underneath 10 layers of digital after effects" doesn't make it a good cut. The cut itself is still shit.
>9 second cut from the boxing match
Woops I forgot the other decent looking 3 second cut. The rest of the boxing matches are complete shit with speedlines and other cheap animation techniques. The episode has some nice storyboards, but the animation itself is nothing impressive.
>Those disgusting CG effects
>Where's the animation anon? Where's the fucking animation?
You have to be pretending to be this retarded. If you think there's no animation in Nozomu Abe's cuts because of some added CG then you're blind.
>You're more concerned with listing animator names than actually looking at cuts
Not really. Just giving credit where credit is due. It's pretty retarded to discuss animation without knowing who the fuck animated it.
>Let me cherry pick some more
Ok. Nice 3 additional seconds.
>If you think there's no animation in Nozomu Abe's cuts because of some added CG
There is no fucking animation anon. I don't care who did it, out looks like shit. Even if there were something there, it's buried under layers of horrible post production processing and the cut itself looks like complete shit.
Yes really. That's literally all you've done. "This cut is good because this person drew it." makes you an idiot. What you should be doing is looking for good cuts and saying "This person is good because they drew this cut." All you care about is tryhard name dropping.
This small scene was also very nice
Kevin is a two-faced hack though. He spurs on discussion about sakuga while basically shitposting other people's taste in sakuga fandom through his shitty Twitter account. When he gets called out for it, he basically just side-steps the point.
This. I don't even know why anyone would listen to kvin when he's just some random yuropoor sjw hypocrite from the interwebs without any real connection to the industry. If you're really interested in animation, go read the actual experts, not some braindead twitter e-celebs. Shilling for him and his ilk is literally /v/ tier.
>>Let me cherry pick some more
Dude I'm trying to post the best shit from the episode. It's not a very well animated episode. Why don't you post this godly cut that I'm not posting then if I'm just cherrypicking.
>There is no fucking animation
Don't know why I'm even replying to you at this point. You've successfully hooked me into your bait. Congratulations.
How so? Knowing who animated a cut can tell you a lot about it. Animator's obviously have their own styles and certain techniques they like to use, and they probably have a preference in what they animate. Knowing who animated a cut can help you to recognize these things.
Nozumu Abe is know for his effects as clearly seen in the Fate cut I posted and typically works on action shows.
Ryouma Ebata who worked on the Absolute Duo OP has a strong focus on character acting, and seems to like using smears for his action sequences.
Watch enough anime and eventually you'll notice certain well-animated scenes with distinctive styles.
How do people judge anime animation? I'm not really sure, but subjectively, 2 of my favorite animation scenes this year are from CG anime, prisma ilya 3 and fafner exodus. Do I just have shit taste or not because usually when I notice 2d animation its becuase of how bad it looks?
Good animation is judged by many things, mostly for how believable a scene can be from our point of view. Character acting, movement, velocity, weight, gravity, tempo, those are thing you need to think about.
Watch anime, that's all there is. If you think a scen is cool look for it on the sakugabooru, if the animation is good than it'll most likely be posted.
There you'll see the name of the artist who got that scene, you'll eventually start recognizing them for their styles.
No I'm serious. For example, when ilya and co. were fighting the child gilgamesh who was completely CG he felt a lot more better animated than any fight in UBW, but that was just my opinion, maybe I am not watching anime right. Same way I watch 10-15 shows each season this year but no 2d animation moments stood out to me, when I notice something it's how cheap/trashy it looks.
>Pretend I attached the oregairu hand meme as an image
Are you saying that didn't perfectly capture the pretentious nature of the people that were talking? It was supposed to show that they looked up public talking 101 on youtube and don't know how to actually speak beyond spouting buzzwords and swinging their hands around.
But that fits well for robot anime since they are actually robots and supposed to look mechanical. I prefer the animation with cool fights of Fafner Exodus to Gundam IBO which looks just as robotic and soulless but the gundam just flies around on the screen pointlessly.
If you've seen some of the best of handdrawn mecha animation in action, for example from old Gundam OVA's, the modern run-off-the-mill CG shit completely pales in comparison. Unlike 2D mechs, the CG ones rarely if ever convey any weight and impact. It's a damn shame mech animation is a dying art and you are cheering on its demise.
I watched through Gundam this year but not any of the OVA's, except 0080. 0080 looked nice but there's a lot of garbage going though all the tv series like that, sure some of them have a couple good scenes and there's 1 or 2 shows that were consistently good looking, but there's also so many scenes that are hard to follow and boring cause of stock footage and the mechs not having any weight, compared to that I think the studio orange stuff looks a lot better consistently. I don't see why it can't be sakuga just cause it's CG, if the stuff happening looks cool and not lazy.
Post processing lowers the fidelity of the hand drawn animation. The latter should never be obscured by ugly effects. Animals did fine without it before digital coloring, so why add it?
So how many recent handdrawn mecha that came out recently look as good as the ones back then? Cause IBO looks trash to average most if the time, and the only particular good instances are mostly stills with little motion.
Man Yutapon is such a meme nowadays.
I want him to go back to animating glorious stuff like the Stranger final fight. That was his style. His new shit just looks like... like fucking Bahi or something
>You've successfully hooked me into your bait
No you idiot, that cut is complete garbage filled with horrible post production filters and effects. You can say the animators name till you're blue in the face, but you're literally just namedropping instead of actually discussing animation. "He does effects so it's good! Ignore that the animation is shit and its all digital after effects!" You could not be any more of a tryhard.
>I don't see why it can't be sakuga just cause it's CG,
>like fucking Bahi or something
He's got some recent stuff that suffers from that aimless flailing type movement, but he's still among the best. Everything Bahi draws looks like a wacky inflatable waving arm puppet. Don't compare him to Yutapon.
No, non-argument is "This cut was done by this animator so it HAS to be good." It's exactly the kind of armchair expert this post
is making fun of. Pretending to be knowledgeable without actually saying anything of substance is as non-argument as it gets.
>I like CGshit
>I only notice 2D animation that looks bad
You're shit taste incarnate. Literally nothing you say holds any weight. Go talk about how studio Orange makes the best mechs ever in a Comet Lucifer thread and stay out of every real animation thread you see.
Damn I know it had some very well animated episodes but I can't remember shit about the show and I'm too lazy to look for these.
I do remember it having a surprisingly good schedule (for the most part), some episodes only had one KA/AD.
I'm not saying digital effects is bad or isn't used. I'm talking about the Hibike (at least the 1st one) and UBW scenes they have. Neither of them is really that impressive from an animation perspective. It's just smeared with some nice digital effects to make it visually attractive.
But it's not all digital after effects. Those cuts do have hand-drawn effects animation in them. I don't think they're particularly good, nor do they make up for the awful post-processing, but you can't deny that it's there.
>Neither of them is really that impressive from an animation perspective.
>best action scenes
If you're not a lolifag, loli on loli rape doesn't qualify as best action scene.
>It is possible to have CG sakuga.
It's really not though. Definitions aside, it all looks like shit.
>What kind of anime that doesn't have digital effects nowadays ?
All is done with digital coloring, but covering your scenes with digital after effects till you can't see anything underneath what looks like unicorn vomit doesn't make something a good scene.
Webgen is just a tool that still makes use of the same skillset, and can produce beautiful animation.
As for Hibike, that's a bias since kViN is huge fan of KyoAni, but I agree that the post production in KyoAni is so good. (Though as you said, the character acting itself is typical KyoAni's animators, great but not something I called spectacular).
Well, for UBW....he said that he put it because it will make his opinion less bias (since he hates UBW).
And yes, Abe's effects is overkill.
>Those cuts do have hand-drawn effects animation in them
Yes, there are hand drawn frames underneath layers of digital effects, but those hand drawn frames aren't anything special, and even if they were you'd never be able to see it under all the garbage.
>I don't think they're particularly good, nor do they make up for the awful post-processing, but you can't deny that it's there.
That's my point. The animation is nothing special, but throw a bunch of shitty filters on it and then you have some idiots claiming it's one of the top 10 cuts of the year. I don't know if it's because they're stupid Fatefags, but they're out of their minds if they think it's a good sakuga cut.
>As for Hibike, that's a bias since kViN is huge fan of KyoAni
That just made me realize something. Hibike looked great and all, but why the fuck wasn't the new KnK movie on that last? Why weren't any movies on that list?
Yuyucow is a hypocrite tool that panders to the absolute crowd. Like when he selectively quoted the interview with the staff about Hibike to read as if they hadn't specifically said that Reina and Kumiko's relationship is just platonic.
>I don't know if it's because they're stupid Fatefags, but they're out of their minds if they think it's a good sakuga cut.
Are you fucking saying this isn't a good cut? Are YOU the one out of your mind?
This thread is fucking cancer and I don't usually say that about much. All this name dropping people from twitter and discussing "internet sakuga celebrities" and their opinions does not belong on /a/. It is just as bad as /v/ with youtube reviewers.
>If you're not a lolifag, loli on loli rape doesn't qualify as best action scene.
Watch the fucking show.
I keep coming back to Prisma Herz ep 7's action I keep returning to this episode because of just how BRILLIANT every single second of it is and how freaking well directed it is. I mean from starting off with Bazett's entrance(I am sure that scene had more weighty movement and dynamic angles than anything this year) to the viewpoint switching to first person view as Chloe is about to broken-phantasm Exaclibur, or the blur effect on Chloe to signify the extent and brightness of the explosion.
Prisma is just FULL of inventive and very beautiful direction choices. I can't think of another 2015 episode to reach this level of greatness.
This episode looked cool (in my opinion senpai), and much better than anything in UBW.
>Posting a fucking jpg in an animation thread
>Caps for emphasis
Fucking kill yourself.
>Still using caps for emphasis
>Still being a stupid Fatefag who has no idea what makes good animation
You can stop now.
>This episode looked cool
The hand drawn character animation there looks pretty cool, yes. Those CG backgrounds and evil smoke/whatever effects look like shit.
Not really setting a high bar there.
>being this mad that you have shit taste in animation
See I'm just judging the episode as a whole and it all looks good. The CG was a part of it, and I thought it was used well, made gil feel very intimidating and alien compared to the characters. Maybe the later episodes overused the CG but it wasn't that bad.
if you can't comprehend how deep and elegant is UBW's animation you should just fuck off to >>>/co/ and keep discussing your shit cuts instead of coming here just to say a line of a meaningless effort to take down an entire fanbase that are not retards, like you are.
>if you can't comprehend how deep and elegant is UBW's animation
I mean as if you didn't give away the game with "deep and elegant" you then went on to redirect to another board that was completely unrelated and finally using sakuga terminology that someone who actually knew what they were talking about might use while espousing retarded opinions. Really try harder friend.
Where is Kameda when we need source for #11 ? That madhouse website sure take a long time and bad choices.
Why are these threads such shit-posting magnets?
Twitter "celebrities", ANN devs, armchair sakuga experts, CGfags, Fatefags spamming their shitty bait images.
When those guys aren't around, these threads are pretty great, though.
>kyoani looks like shit
>that's all you "real sakuga" fags ever talk about.
What does "real sakugafags" mean again? People who actually know anything about animation, have a discerning eye and understand that CG looks like lifeless crap and by definition can't be sakuga?
It has really good scene by Shikama in episode 18.
And sometimes nice animation by Hori and Sung hoo park. But yeah, MAPPA and Madhous really love to outsourced their work to Korean, so the quality is really unstable.
Just look at Ushio to Tora. I guess VOLN is another studio supported by Maruyama.
Don't get me wrong though, I love Maruyama, he's really ambitious for his age. But because of that, he has to lower the production cost by using inexperienced Korean animator (since his anime don't sell really good).
The last decent MAPPA show was Zankyou no Terror, I think. But I hope Garo Movie can bring Shikama back from TOEI's graveyard.
whether Abe's effects are sabuga or not.
And is kViN really SJW shill or not.
Also, throw this "forced animation" meme to counter argument sakugafag and you can fit in this thread perfectly.
What is the most visually impressive scene to come out of 2015?
I don't finish Bahamut. I just assume it's still far below Zankyou no Terror since it airing on the same time with Garo, which used lots of Korean animator
But yeah, I saw that Shikama scene in first episode too. But once again, since I still haven't finished that, probably I'm wrong.
Kevin practically admits that he pirates shit in his reply to someone: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/bbs/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=4700518#4700518
He just tries to hand-wave it by going on about supporting the industry by buying Key Animation books and the BD. Because pirating shit while throwing them cash somehow balances it out apparently.
One of us has talked about animation in this thread. The other decided that Fateshit looked good, and randomly complained about Kyoanifags to pretend he had some point to make.
>knowledgeable about animation
Yutaka Nakamura, though his works latey aren't as exciting as in the past.
Takahiro Shikama also a great example of good animator who know how to make great fighting scenes.
So I caught up to the Monogatari series recently which everyone says has good animation, but it was literally just a big slideshow. I liked it better than the first time I tried it, it was interesting to look at in a way but you can barely call that "animation", it is like reading a book. A lot of "sakuga" animation is like that, people praise it and says it looks realistic but then you watch it and it looks garbage. Does /a/ just have shit taste?
I think in that case, you were either just trolled, or more likely, were told by ignorant /a/nons who actually don't know what this whole sakuga-thing is and just think it means "anime I like for its visuals" that it must be good sakuga.
Everyone knows the only good monogatari series is Bakemonogatari, which directed by Tatsuya Oishi. Also, lots of good Imamura & Gen'ichirou Abe cuts. And good TNK.
Kizumonoagari Par I will be good sakuga movie too. Since we already know Imamura working on it, plus we got veteran like Satoru Utsunomiya and good newbie like Ryuu Nakayama. (and Oishi draw the whole storyboard, so it's going to be good).
BONES schedule :
Studio A : Boku no Hero Academia (Spring ?)
Studio B : Akagami S2 (winter), Mob Psycho 100
Studio C : Conrevo S2 (Spring)
Studio D : Bungou Stray Dogs (Spring), Show by Rock S2
I just hope HeroAca will be Summer. Mob Psycho probably will be Fall.
Bungou has really good character designs.
nozomu abe mang
Yeah, if it airs in Summer, then Studio C can help them (Unless they're working on the next big original project for 2017).
Also, I'm kinda excited with that new Okamurai Tensai's original, Kuromukuro, although it's not BONES.
Bones is also doing a big original anime next year, they talked about it at MachiAsobi. ConRevo is already pretty shoddily produced other than the stand-out action sequence here and there. I don't really care for any of the manga they're adapting other than Mob Psycho; Bungo can go die in production hell for all I care. Just make MP work.
Well, he's still new as Character Designer / AD, this is his 2nd work after Chaika. I also felt his designs is still restricted with original design (but still pretty).
I hope he can got his original design sometimes.
Oh, wait. I forgot Concrete Revolutio. No HeroAca or Bungo, though.
I just noticed [email protected] is there and not as Cinderella Girls. Probably going to announce the inevitable ML anime.
He means that Kiznaiver looks cool other than the fact that it's written by Okada. It seems to have a pretty healthy production time since it's Spring, too. Shame it's Okada. I hope it's at least fun.
[23:07] <liborek3> so, who's the designer
[23:07] <liborek3> any bets
[23:08] <@~kViN> an actual Precure person probably
[23:08] <@~kViN> because the eyes are 100% kawamura

[23:08] <@~kViN> so I don't think they got a random new person this time
[23:08] <jet_> link to spoiler thread?
[23:08] <liborek3> it reminds me a bit of Kagawa
[23:08] <jet_> want the original, not twitter ul

[23:09] <@~kViN> http://jbbs.shitaraba.net/bbs/read.cgi/anime/1261/1450258445/
[23:09] <Arasan> is Fujii likely to work on this?
[23:09] <jet_> thx
[23:09] <@~kViN> he might leave
[23:09] <@~kViN> hopefully not
MLP fanart, Little Witch Academia
It's Kawamura. Why does it matter that she worked on that shitty-looking Garakowa movie? She wasn't AD for a single episode of Smile, doing designs wouldn't really take much time.
>talking shit without even watching it
Kill yourself retard.
This guy knows what I mean >>134853639
Yeah, I hope she doesn't pull too much drama.
The theme itself seems original, although its actually not.
Meanwhile Goro said he wants to make a fun and lighthearted show, and not too serious.
This is going to be fun ride.
Atsuko Nishida seems to be in high demand, working on two shows next season.
And Kiznaiver reminds me more of Sense8 than anything else. I wouldn't be surprised if they also share physical abilities or something like that since they said it has action scenes.
>2 shows by Araki
>both by Wit
Schedule apocalypse incoming.
At least they're not working on three shows in one season just like Silver Link.
Also, hundred seems going to have good animation occasionally.
Nice effect and impact frame at the beginning of PV. Also, spotted some Itano circus at the end.
>And Kiznaiver reminds me more of Sense8 than anything else.
Oh, this show seems promising. I don't usually watch American tv series so I don't know there's already a show with this theme.
>Schedule apocalypse incoming
Yes, also that Empire of Corpses thing.I can't imagine how the situation in Wit right now. Must be a hell for Production Desk and all PA.
Trigger should use their Disney/Pixar connections to get hired to do anime Star Wars.
I'm a sucker for this animation style, does it have a particular name? Rough-sketch animation? I wish it would be used more often.
Kids worldwide don't care if their mainstream shows are 3D or handdrawn.
The shows /a/ talks about mostly is just late night niche anime that neither kids in Nippon nor anywhere else are watching and interested in.
What if I cling to hope, and power through the bad stuff with hard work and guts until I can see the light at the end of the tunnel?
KyoAni's fire effects are really good.
So, how do you guys cut a video into mp4 ?
I'm using the program that Nainko made
But somehow, the resolution always end up 852 x 480 (just like this one https://sakuga.yshi.org/post/show/18870/) , while others 854 x 480 (for example : https://sakuga.yshi.org/post/show/19257/).
>best animated scenes
>doesn't include movies because buhh unfair
Kid even mentioned movies and animator expo is a bunch of short films in the article. Admit he's just a poser who's still too immature to grow out of TV.
What's the point of your post?
Someone who pretends to care about animation should look for opportunities to see these films.
I didn't have to go out of my way to see Hana & Alice, Sarusuberi and the Kanashimi no Belladonna restoration.
I had to go a bit out of my way to see Bakemono no Ko, but if a noname like me who doesn't brag to the world about how epically anime I am can do this, surely the attention whore can, too.
But since ANN is a huge pile of shit, even a kid like him who only watches pirated TV and gets all his knowledge from Twitter can be considered knowledgeable. It's sad.
He already mentioned Precure (so anyone watching shit legally are out), Sarusuberi (so anyone who doesn't speak Japanese or saw the thing at a film fest is out), Boruto (so anyone not watching films in theaters are out).
It's not that he talks about shit people watched, it's that he himself watches fuckall because he's a lazy kid who only watches stuff he can pirate.
If Sarusuberi hadn't been out yet he would've definitely ignored it too. I bet he didn't even watch it yet (because no subs) but only watched webbums that khwan uploaded.
No mention of cyborg 009 vs devilman either.
Because CG looking like shit is the rule. It being decent is an exception. It being amazing is like winning the lottery
Honestly, I've kinda had it with people trying to be edgy saying that anything to do with Fate/Zero has shit animation. I literally haven't seen a single episode from the series, but the clips of animation I've seen from it have all been amazing. I honestly don't understand the hate

Damm ANN. No surprise there with ANN. Even their best 2015 anime list look like shit.
>Why do sakuga fags hate CGI?
Because it looks like awkward and unnatural shit with oversaturated colors and lifeless motion that will never approach the style a good 2D cut has.
>the clips of animation I've seen from it have all been amazing. I honestly don't understand the hate
That's because your taste is shit and shiny digital filters are enough to fool you into thinking something is good.
tamerlane is on the same level. Doesn't watch anything he can't find online. Except he thinks he's an expert on japanese+american+russian animation from reading a bit about it. It's funny how he complains that he can't find shit to watch available to pirate online.
Tomino is a good storyboarder but why do you hate studio orange CG? I think both look good. Both have their plus's and flaws. I'm just trying to learn more about animation not have a pissing argument.
>I think it looks cool.
>If you have an actual argument or criticism
You fucking idiot, you got your answer and your response is "well I like eating shit, guess you don't have a real argument."
How about you try explaining how the colors aren't oversaturated garbage, the textures don't look awkward in an otherwise hand drawn show, and the puppets that some jackass throws coordinates at don't look lifeless in motion compared to 2D that has so much personality we can tell the fucking person who drew it just by looking at it?
Remember, "Well I think it looks cool." isn't a point and doesn't open a dialog, it's you plugging your ears and being a stubborn idiot.
I don't think they look lifeless at all and the colors look normal. On the other hand there are a lot of lazy, boring looking 2D mecha anime so I don't see why you would assume CG is shit and 2D is always good.
(Precure EDs and Show By Rock have some decent 3DCG too.)
No doubt it's getting better, but it doesn't lend itself well to stretching, skewing, and smears which gives 2D a bit of life. Though I guess Hotel Transylvania did some exaggeration stuff.
because i really miss animation with weight, size and life rather than just flash.
HeroAca is studio A.
I guess they already finished Noragami Aragoto by now. So they still have about five months to work on HeroAca.
If it only 1 cour, I think it's not a problem.
Studio B : Akagami S2 -> Mob Psycho (Fall or Summer ?)
Studio C : Conrevo S2 (spring)
Studio D : Bungou Stray Dogs (spring) -> Show by Rock (Summer ?)
Then studio B or C can start work on the next big project for 2017, and Studio A can start work on Kekkai Sensen again.
That's just an OP for a mobile game.
Everyone fucked up. Koike fucked up the schedule, Okada wrote 2deep4u nonsense, Sayo Yamamoto has proved that she can't handle a full show.
Original character design :
Haruhiko Mikimoto (Macross character designer)
Chief Animation Director, character designer for anime :
Action Animation Director :
Good team, though it's going to be production disaster again, since this is Spring anime.
I guess either Okouchi fucked the story so it could ended without S2, or they fucked up all and fucked up Titan S2 too (which is confirmed to be another disaster).
>Everyone fucked up. Koike fucked up the schedule, Okada wrote 2deep4u nonsense, Sayo Yamamoto has proved that she can't handle a full show.
Despite all that, it was a good show.
It' literally Titan vs Kancolle : the Anime.
Now that Valerauko disabled anoymous questions on his ask.fm, I can't ask the question I wanted to ask, since he'll know it's me.
I never saw SNK, but hopefully, they wont do the thing they did with SNK. Their 3D layouts/backgrounds and 2D character animation in those scenes were so ineffective and retarded as fuck. Printing out the 3D backgrounds on paper, and then aniamting on top of them. Worst fuckign idea ever. Hopefully they wont use so much 3D for backgrounds in this.
You just reminded me that the "miraculous" Kamikaze Douga guys are about to release their new annual demo reel. Looking forward to it!
But, on the topic of CGI quality in animation, it happens in part because there is no money at all to be had in the Japanese animation industry. Most animators work for peanuts, and why would many CGI artists involve in that when they are sought after by the more lucrative video games and film industries?
If you doubt CG just watch the Peanuts movie. It's fucking gorgeous and easily the best looking CG movie. Japan just doesn't really get how to do CG yet and unlike 2D animation CG actually requires you to have good budget and just "having good animators" won't do the trick since rendering that doesn't look like a real-time PS4 cut-scene requires top notch computers.
