Is it just me, or had Gen Urobuchi kinda fallen off the radar? He hasn't been the lead writer of a TV series since Psycho-Pass and has only had limited involvement with most shows that slap his name on it for marketing purposes.

The latest thing to come from him was the Psycho-Pass movie, which was good, but that came out in Japan in January and Urobuchi hasn't been in a leading position since then.

Fair enough.
>>
>>134960000
He better be involved in S2. Gargantia and Aldnoah sucked because different people wrote the scripts, so they were all so damn disjointed. And PP2 was even worse because it was written by an absolute fucking hack who completely missed the point.

Would you say Gen is the George Lucas of anime?

Every article I've read just says "The original Staff is back" but it lists everyone specifically EXCEPT for Gen.

But surely SHAFT isn't that dumb as to do a S2 without him. They have to know that he was a large factor into the sucess.

I had a dream where in the new movie had a big musical number with Mami conducting, which segued into an elaborate ceremony with Sayaka and Kyouko in wedding dresses and holding hands with lots of celebration.

Didn't Urobuchi say in an interview (like during the Rebellion era) that if Madoka's story continues he wants someone else to write it? I could have sworn that was the case.

He does have an annoying habit of handing his incomplete stories over to less competent writers and letting them finish them.

Honestly it makes me wonder what he originally intended with all the loose ends at the end of Psycho-pass Season One. How would his own Season 2 have been different? Would he have taken the characters in the same direction that the new writer did?

I also honestly wonder if he dropped Aldnoah because he ended up not liking it, and just sold the incomplete script to another studio for a lot of money. You'd think most writers would just scrap their ideas once they dislike them. Why did Urobuchi leave his name on it and trust someone else to finish it for him? That seems like an unusual industry practice.

Anyways he's starting to damage his own brand a little bit with things like Rebellion and Psycho-pass showing that he doesn't really care about the integrity of his creative works.

Hold your horses there cowboy. It's a great show but it's in no way a 10/10. I'd give it a 9 at most, but I believe Fate/Zero was much better than Madoka.

>>134965457

The first generation of creators managed to make some really interesting things and get the ball rolling on Japanese animation precisely because they weren't a bunch of stupid otaku. Yeah sure they copied a lot from Disney and Star Wars but like at least they were drawing from influences outside of Japan and outside of the cloistered realm of otakudom.

I think this actually has to do with Japanese culture more than anything. They value conformity above all else so if something is generally well regarded, they probably feel a need to overwhelmingly praise it even if they think it's mediocre or just good. It's just Japan.

>>134964315

The only one that sounds like he's seriously thinking through his choices of words and not just being sycophantic as all fuck is Hideaki Anno. Of course Rena Matsui would say good things about it, she literally works for Sony Music Records, same with Hitoshi Sako of Galileo Galilee. NHK receives a lot of funding from Sony also which is where Ryusuke Hikawa works so that's almost half of these commentators being in a direct conflict of interest right off the bat and just supporting the company from inside. Yutaka Yamamoto's commentary is just silly as is Oshii's and former is infamous for saying stupid shit all the time as well. Shunji Suzuki is just some key animator that used to work for Gainax musing about shit so that just leaves Kazuo Koike as kind of the sole authority here.

Frankly I just figure this as more bought and paid for publicity for the most part like how the Newtype Awards are.
>>
>>134966025
This just reads like terrible damage control. Madoka can't be that good so it must be that Japanese culture is flawed?

>I'd expect to have good taste and knowledge would say ridiculous hyperbolic shit like most of those comments.
That right there, that whole sentence is my point. You don't like it, so you cannot believe that all of those people unironically like it. That's not how it works.
>>
Why is it that whenever Madoka is brought up, everyone sucks Urobuchi's cock but nobody bothers to praise Akiyuki Shinbo for handling Gen's story so well? It's like Gen gets more recognition for Madoka than Shinbo.
>>
>>134966589
So what you're saying is that whenever anyone says something, no matter how over-the-top and hard-to-believe it seems, I should assume they really believe it?
>>
>>134966589
These are not reasoned opinions. These are the type of thing you say when you're advertising or if you're a teenager online trying to praise something you think you're supposed to praise.
>>
>>134966656
No, but the original post I replied to seemed to imply that the reason they all said those hyperbolic ridiculous things about Madoka is because it's common in Japanese society for people to just say shit just because other people do. That's a load of crap.

That whole post is a troll pasta of poorly translated newtype quotes, of course it's fucking ridiculous, it's probably not even accurate at all. But at the very least all of those people were quoted with positive reactions to Madoka.
>>
>>134966619
That's what I will never get. I love Madoka but actually Gen's writing comes last in the thinks I like about it. Shinbo's direction, the SHAFT art style with Inu's huge influence and the character designs by Ume , the soundtrack by Kajiura, all these things are the main reasons for me.

The fatal weakness of the western anime community is that it is pretty much only able to analyze and care about writing/story/characters, and then only goes as far as caring about animation/sound to the point of whether it looks/sounds pretty, cool or not. You rarely get people talking about the more technical aspects behind series.

Well in this particular case that isn't really true because a lot of the praise that Madoka got, even in the west, was due to the visuals, especially the labyrinths and witches. Inu Curry get as much praise as Gen. But I do agree that Shinbo and Kajiura need a lot more credit. Madoka has an absolutely GOAT OST.

Shame it wasn't even him. Can you even call something your story when someone else gives you the world, the characters, characters stories/abilites and the central plot of the whole thing? Can you even call something yours when even after all that you still called every night the person that gave you everything because you didn't know if things would fit correctly?
>>
>>134967089
Pretty much this. I always have different reasons to watch specific shows for example this season I watch Taimadou for the cast, Rakudai for Shin's direction, One-Punch Man for the animation, Shomin sample because I was interested in seeing how they adapt it, Valkyrie for tits etc. etc.
Story only plays a small factor among others and only in some shows it's the most important one.

Now the Wixxos movie just needs to outgross the Psycho-Pass film and I'll stop considering it a coincidence.
>>
>>134969688
How does this bitch still find work after garbage like Aquarion or M3?
>>
>>134969423
That is true.
Gargantia started production before Madoka aired.
He started writing madoka around 2008 and wrote an episode a month.
Expelled from paradise was written even before that.

It could take years before we see more of his series.

He's the James Cameron of anime

She's pretty good when she's adapting other people's works though and she seems like a very productive writer.
So my guess is that her success is based on her work ethic.

Those projects started production ages ago, before Butch was even relevant.

>>134969741
Because she's a writer for hire, those aren't blamed for anything and the director gets the blame.

Truth is that the episodes she handles herself are usually better than the rest, but she writes like one in three.

You'd think Okada would be a shoe in for Gundam because they both run on retarded drama.
But watered down Okada just isn't good enough.

Okada or the other writers have nothing to do with it. When it comes to toy-centric shows, producers play the largest role. The Okada element is pretty weak. She's not even writing all the episodes. They're not going to give Gundam to some writer with that amounts of flops she had.

Uro didn't have to adhere to the continuity, it could have been like Prisma and Nasu wouldn't mind but he wanted to make sure it lines up as close as possible because in a twisted way he would share the joy of F/SN's happy ending because his story led to that.

For those of you who still haven't figured it out, Urobuchi has working mostly for Kamen Rider Gaim, which you can find out easily enough on Wikipedia. He's only had a finger in anime, which is why projects that he comes up with usually end up being written primarily by someone else. Don't talk if you're too much of a lazy cunt to do a bit of research.
>>
>>134964558
>Kyoko's a lesbian now guys, she's ULTRA gay for Sayaka!
I'm here with you on the other side of the fence, Sayabro. A pure Christian girl like Kyoko could never love another girl. Rebellion's yuri twist was complete bullshit.
>>
>>134971310
Gaim ended over a year ago, and the in-name-only projects started with Gargantia, six months before Gaim.
>>
>>134967089
Kajiura gets a lot of praise for the OST though. She actually made a soundtrack that didn't result in people complaining that she was just getting boring and repeating old pieces of work.

Might have been laying low this year but at least she's involved in a 2016 anime and the upcoming SAO movie (funnily enough, both are directed by the same person...go figure).

>>134971393
Yea, that's why I said "mostly"

>>134971379
Glad you see some reason in this.

I really loved the relationship between the girls in the main series. Sayaka gradually drifting away from Madoka as Kyouko's words start to grate on her. Kyouko softening her attitude as Sayaka inadvertently helps her realize why it was she originally became a meguka. But, I think Kyouko's feelings were ultimately one-sided. Sayaka's feelings for Kyouko never went past the point of thinking of her as a kindred spirit. Kyouko's feelings for Sayaka were deeply personal and introspective.

But hey, I guess cheap yuriservice is more important than that to Urobuchi.
>>
>>134971437
It doesn't really work as an explanation when it only overlaps with a third of the time period we're talking about.
>>
>>134959610
Has it been confirmed as S2 and not a movie? Homura as autistic villian for 12-24 episodes just sounds like suffering. And not in a good way.

>>134971551
Yeah, except she's not. I mean, I don't know what kind of Christians you've been talking to, but most of them don't really do that, you know.
>>
>>134971599

Their styles are similar too. Lots of high-tension standoffs between characters. Lots of early character-building through inconsequential banter. Lots of genre awareness.
>>
>>134971497
2013-2014. Rebellion released in 2013. So we have just one year where we aren't 100% sure what he's been up to. Sounds like "mostly" to me.
>>
>>134971608
The way you behave has no bearing on what your beliefs are. She pretty blatantly prays to God for help her and crouches in prayer before offering herself as a sacrifice at the end. She also clearly has faith in the afterlife given the last words she utters to Sayaka.
>>
Rakuen Tsuiho is a better sequel to the Ghost in the Shell movie than Innocence.
>>
>>134971695
People often pray when they believe they'll die, even those who don't believe will sometimes do ti. It's only more likely with her because she has a Christian background. Doesn't mean she is a pure Christian, doesn't mean she can't have a closer relationship with another girl. Doesn't mean Christian lesbians don't exist.
>>
>>134971797
I never said Christian lesbians didn't exist. I only said she was Christian. If the only thing you're arguing is whether or not she's pure, then I don't disagree. I'm not the anon who originally called her a pure Christian girl.
>>
>>134971826
Even so, her callous attitude towards the lives of ordinary people clearly do not portray her as your average run of the mill Christian girl. She may have a Christian background, but that doesn't mean she still is.
>>
>>134971411
When did /a/ become aware of Kajiura? For me it was Madoka. So I had nothing for reference to know whether it was repetitive at that time. Even after watching the KNK movies I still think of Madoka as my initial exposure which feels more original.

People can believe whatever the hell they want. Being a Christian just means that you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. No particular line of conduct is required.
>>
>>134972369
Except for the billion chapters upon chapters prior to that, that were written as a line of conduct?
>>
>>134972369
SOME line of conduct is required by the basis of how God sets down his law. If someone genuinely believes in heaven + hell, they'll know that certain kinds of behavior are NOT ok. Some of it is up to interpretation, but a lot of it is pretty clear. Using people as witch food is obviously NOT ok.
>>
I thought she was Christian by upbringing only. There's no reason to believe she continued as a devout fundementalist. Im with you on KyoSaya though. There were undertones, but they could have gone either way and I was leaning toward soul sisters rather than soul mates. Rebellion dropped that on us hard.
>>
>>134972470
If you're interested in the Christian theological status of the "old law," go educate yourself. Don't expect us to teach you.
>>
>>134972526
To be fair, Rebellion might have swung the ball in that direction, but it doesn't come across as an actual confirmation. It's at best, just leaning in that direction.
>>
>>134972526
I choose to see Kyouko as a Christian who went through some periods of shameful conduct brought about by extreme hardship and cynicism. In all likelihood she scorned God and cursed him repeatedly for her lot in life. There are many Christian characters like her in literature and cinema, it's interesting and it deepens her.

The fact that Sayaka opened her eyes to her own bullshit shows that she maybe never really believed all that stuff about the "food chain." It was a big lie that she'd started to tell herself as much as she was telling it to Sayaka. In the end she decided to do the right thing because her eyes were opened.

Whether you are a Christian has more to do with your beliefs in matters metaphysical than in your conduct regarding your own beliefs. Even after all she sees, in the end she still asks God to save her, which is not to be taken lightly in the context of her backstory.

I'm sure other interpretations are available for Kyouko but I don't personally find them convincing. I think her Christian beliefs stayed with her in the back of her head her whole life, she strayed from them over time, and ultimately reconciled with her faith. It's an interesting spiritual character arc.

Shinbo did the Rebellion twist because he wanted to make more seasons and movies. That is fact and is not a value judgement on Rebellion. While Urobuchi ultimately accepted to write the idea, Shinbo and Iwakami explicitly wanted to whore out a show/franchise that really doesnt need more seasons. It sells merchandise like crazy at the moment despite 2 years of nothing.

The fact is they had no clue how to continue after Rebellion because of the situation they put themselves in and that's why it took 2 years to even get a storyboard going.

Homura at this point is too sympathetic/pathetic/crazy to be a believable villian, Madoka forgiving Homura is a given, Madoka and Homura killing one another is insulting, and the other girls are borderline irrelevant due to the new gap in power.
>>

>says it's not a value judgement on Rebellion
>proceeds to give his shitty opinion on Rebellion

>>
>>134975402
He's not completely wrong. In the material book for the limited edition of the Blu-ray, there's a text from Urobuchi where he states that he had trouble finding a good conclusion for the movie, he himself didn't find Homura being saved by the Law of Cycles a satisfying end. Shinbo thought so, too, and then proposed to make Homura defy Madoka as an enemy.
However, Shinbo did not have to persuade Urobuchi to use that idea, he apparently gladly took it.
>>
>>134970893
Don't blame Shinbo. He and Shaft were just paid to adapt Nisekoi. Blame Komi for being a hack.
>>
>>134975824
Yes, that's what I meant to say. Most people focus on the idea that Urobuchi was forced to do it, because...I dunno, they like pointless drama? Of course, there's also no evidence to the other thing he's saying that they just wanted to make more money off merchandise because there's just as much evidence to suggest they just wanted to make more Madoka related content.
>>
>>134975287
Shinbo didn't direct Rebellion. Yukihiro Miyamoto did.
>>
>>134975927
>. Most people focus on the idea that Urobuchi was forced to do it, because...I dunno, they like pointless drama?
They only say that because they hated the movie and couldn't understand why the series had to be "ruined".

Honestly 50% of why /a/ hates Rebellion is because it doesn't fit their headcanon about what should have happened.
>>
>>134975947
They are both listed as director.

How much did Shinbo have to do with Madoka? Did he write anything? Did he personally direct it or did he stamp his name on it like he does with all other Shaft shows?
>>
>>134976091
He was the fucking director.

I did but Shaft sounds like an unconventional studio run by a guy who's role is mysterious. He's listed as one of two directors of every single show so I'm pretty sure he doesn't actually direct.
