Anno is using Eva for climbing the corporative ladder. Let's put it this way, Anno wouldn't made the upcoming Godzilla movie if he didn't make Rebuild.

>KareKano
Not good
>love & pop
Laughably bad.

Same as above

Anno didn't make cutie honey (or kare kano for that matter), he directed an adaptation.

>The Giant God Warrior Appears at Tokyo
Pretty bad actually, considering the budget.

>>138583037
>Anno is using Eva for climbing the corporative ladder. Let's put it this way, Anno wouldn't made the upcoming Godzilla movie if he didn't make Rebuild.

I believe this is just nonsense. Got any proof, evidence of that? Any argumentation? No, not really.

Anno has no issues getting work and there is no "corporate ladder" for him to climb whatsoever, given that he is his own corporation. He's certainly not going to work for Toho.

"Godzilla" has been low-standard campy action fare for decades, you don't need to climb any ladders to direct one, rather you have to deign yourself. It has ceased to be the work of "real" directors.
>>
>>138582817
>george lucas of anime
That's a good way of putting it
>>
>>138584871
Sort of, but it's really unfair to George Lucas, because George Lucas has done so much good for cinema while Anno has done literally nothing for anime.

Rather Anno is part of the "old guard" who underpays his workers while running off with the profit himself. You know, while Lucas was giving million dollar bonuses to _regular staff members_ to celebrate their success.

the old guard that underpays animators is what is killing Anime?
I dont think Anno si doing that tought, in one interview he complains about that specific matter of animators not gaining enough money.

I think you folks are just being angry assholes "like the typical pre-quel haters" Rebuilds are fun for what they are and are interesting reconstructions "NOT REMAKES" and possible sequels.
I mean, what the fuck was wrong with doing them?
They are not terribly bad - the cgi on it is cringeworthy tought.

I mean what have you done for us Anon? have you given me entertainment?
At least he didnt sell his baby to a corporate milker.
>>
Nadia The Secret Blue Water is a neat Adventure Anime (like many at the time)
Evangelion, puts the conventions on it's head and is a cult hit.

This is nothing compared to George Lucas.

A more apt comparision to George Lucas, is Leiji Matsumoto
>>
>>138586902
>I dont think Anno si doing that tought, in one interview he complains about that specific matter of animators not gaining enough money.
He did bring it up, and so does every other single director. But they still don't pay them. You can sort of "feel" for the other directors who can't pay in full since they're owned by outside interest, but the same can't be said for Anno who has no outside interests.

>I think you folks are just being angry assholes
We're not. We seem like angry assholes to you because you're enthusiastic about a colorful cartoon you like and probably even get off to. The bitter sting of reality ruins your ideal world of Evangelion where it's the perfect intellectual anime it's "OK" to like because it's deep.

It's not really our fault that reality isn't like what you think it is. If talking about Evangelion and Anno in a non-biased way hurts you, maybe it's time for you to grow up and adapt to reality rather than adapting reality to yourself.

>At least he didnt sell his baby to a corporate milker.
No, he just defaced it and milked it himself. I think a corporate milker would be better for Evangelion than Anno has been.

The Rebuilds are horrid and they became truly horrid post 3.0.

Godzilla delayed the last Rebuild. I'm mad.
>>
>>138587783
It didn't. Once 3.33 was out, Anno was satisfied since it contains more or less the "new" view of Eva he wants. There's no real story to Rebuild and 3.33, only a presentation of how he wants Evangelion to be seen and consumed.

That's why, you know, it skipped the story and characterization parts.

If there was no Godzilla, the fourth movie would be just as far away as it is today because a fourth movie is strictly speaking, not necessary.

If you dont like it then sucks for you dude, when I watched rebuild I didnt expect a new EOE but a reconstruction from a less depressed Anno. So tell me Anon why did you watched Eva? was it because it was super deep and shit? Surely this cant be as rich as the series because movies have fucking limited time.

Even if we forego that this was about George Lucas and not the Star Wars movies (or franchise, whichever you meant), are you seriously fucking high?

From the techniques developed to create the various Star Wars effects (both for the original release and the numerous re-releases) to the way things were cut together, there's no comparison between NGE and Star Wars that's even remotely fair, because Star Wars is just that much larger a presence than for what NGE is to anime.

Evangelion is awesome and my favorite anime, but you are absolute fucking cancer. Get educated and get the fuck out.
>>
>>138585853
It's like these "name your favorite series and I'll tell you why it's shit" threads.

You should be saying that for NGE. The impact of Star Wars redefined cinema from the ground up, while all NGE did was to make tonnes of money.

>>138589493
>then I ask you again, HOW is it presented for you to think such thing?
It's not for "me" or even for "you". It is as-is.

But as for what makes me consider it like this, which is a different topic, take for instance the demolished characters and storylines, and the overt focus on presentation rather than what's behind the presentation. Because they don't have any development for any given element in the Rebuilds, but rather choose to present the element as "finished product", logic and reason then dictates that the focus is indeed on the presentation rather than the development and substance behind it.

Are you twelve or something? Act the age limit for this board please, or better if you can. There were cameras, software and more developed during and after Star Wars by the same company/people using the franchise as a carrier.

Before, people cut together film linearly and it was a painstaking process. With the innovations from ILM you could now edit them in the way you take for granted today, non-linearly like windows movie maker or any cell phone "editing" app.

Then you're simply being irrational, and you've already showed enough ignorance to make it clear you had no idea who made those things possible or even created the need for them in-studio.

What does Evangelion have? Pachinko gambling machines?

I like Evangelion more than I like Star Wars. But let me tell you one thing, to deny that George Lucas isn't an influential figure that far eclipses Evangelion is completely retarded.

>>138589802
Yes I understand this, they present it to you as if you where expected to know it from the previous tv series. For me the only way to sort of salvage that would be if it where connected to the original tv series tought.
Development in rebuilds are very limited due to the time constraints altought I do think it would had worked better if they cut out silly filler stuff, maybe even Mari.

I think that trying to do that stuff in 4 movies that followed the series was already hard as it is.
I do like them for what they are tought, and I like to think they are sequels who's characters have been rebuilt from their actual previous series. For me at least would give a sort of validation altought they seriously need to show Asuka's backstory in the next movie.

Which is wrong, because Rebuild and TV-series contradict each other. They don't fit, and they don't match.
There is no problem with time in Rebuild. They explicitly chose to NOT develop, to NOT use the time they have available. The last one discards built up development and is actually shorter than the previous two movies.

Basically you're making a lot of excuses for Rebuild which don't work, resulting in the fact that your theories are all defunct and invalid.

So you only say you "like them for what they are" because you don't actually know what they are.

Yeah the last one was kind of a dissapointment really, and I am not excusing their lack of development among characters. But Like I said before they made these ones thinking or supposing that the people already knew how they where or their basic stories.
Then again I am an optimistic person, being a pesimistic doesnt lead you anywhere.

You watch it for the service because you've failed to provide any reason whatsoever to the opposite.
It's not me who's shallow, it's you, and you've been exposed.

If you weren't shallow, but instead you were trying to find depth and substance in this remake, you'd have elaborated on those parts, but so far it's all "I'm optimistic" or "I want asuka fanservice".
You're only optimistic (read: in anticipation of fanservice) because 3.33 through it's presentation gives you shallow fanservice.

It's not bias, it's just what you've made yourself out to be. You can pretend otherwise by saying you're being "optimistic", but when all you're optimistic and trying to get out of the final experience is some more fanservice, well then it's settled: you're shallow and dumb.

Because really:

Had you had any other reason, you'd have mentioned it. But you don't. Not even a single one. The matter is settled, protest if you want but it's settled.

It's the opposite really. Lucas is an awful director. From the OT films the one he directed is the weakest. THX and American Graffiti weren't anything special in that regard either. He is a ideas man, his biggest contribution is not behind the camera, but with the ILM.

Anno for all his faults is a much better visual story teller.

Nothing of what you wrote really is the opposite of the other post. Their contribution to cinema can be tallied, and both of you actually agree that George is responsible for more important and influential creations, either as technical improvements/innovations or popularization of themes in cinema.

The thing is, George is more than just a director, he's a creator. Not an infallible creator, but someone who drives progress and treats coworkers not only right, but phenomenally well. The same can't be said for Anno, who arguably uses his powers for evil. He's become the king of rehashes and adaptations, and he's contributed nothing to the betterment of anime. Rather he seems to be driving it backwards with poor use of new technology, lowering the bars of what is acceptable in anime "cinema".

Anno might be a good director when it comes to putting scenes together, but when it comes to ideas he heavily relies on others as well. Neither Anno or George created their superhit franchises alone, no man could.

Also, it's an exaggeration to call Lucas an awful director.

What the fuck is this retard talking about ?

>>138594330
His argumentation certainly doesn't seem to imply that, citing ILM. It really is unfair to compare the two because George Lucas simply has done so much more for cinema than Anno has ever done in the same area within Japan.

>>138594346
Rehash after rehash. Fanservice with no purpose. Anno.

The better question is, are you so retarded that you don't get what he's talking about? If George uses his success, his power to innovate and reinvigorate the industry, while Anno just hoards and then does remakes, isn't it obvious?

Anno had a very strong hand in killing OVAs, actually. That's something.
>>
>>138594440
Reads like standard English to me.

It definitely paints George better than it does Anno, but there's nothing wrong with that. Because Anno really hasn't gone those long miles Lucas did to put new technology into the industry. You might not be aware that the bulk of 3D technology, camera setups and model FX was innovated during and after the Star Wars period?

Anno doesn't have anything like that to his name.

>>
>>138594576
You realize Star Wars is basically 30+ years old right? Why not ask what some dead president or other dead guy has done to revitalize society "lately". I think you really are retarded.

George did more than just make something that changed the industry, he kept on making new technology through various funds and investments after Star Wars, using the capital he earned. Ever heard of Pixar?

In the meantime, Gainax who Anno was part owner of, got caught in a tax scandal where people were sent to jail because they had hid their earnings from the state. There's a rather large gap in between these two people and the way they treated their success.
>>
Why it is that EVERY fucking time there's a thread about Anno we need to have crossboarders shilling about George Lucas?
The OP is about Anno, not Anno Vs Lucas. I get it, SW innovated and shit, but why the fuck it is impossible to have a discussion about Anno's work without having to talk about Lucas?
It's really pathetic.

>>138594756
Entirely untrue. Since the 80's and 90's these compilations of animator-driven works have existed and thrived, at a level of quality which puts the entirety of that the Animator Expo to shame. Animator Expo is not about innovation, it's about commercialization and profit.

I think we should consider instead how degraded things have become. You've effectively traded short, near pointless shorts with stuff like this:

We don't have crossboarders shilling about George Lucas.

We have /a/-dwellers in conflict with lesser educated /a/-dwellers, and in their outrage of being humbled by Lucas's repertoire after having made an inappropriate comparison, they blame "crossboarders".
What's pathetic is how hurt a portion of /a/ gets when reality knocks their grand fantasies about the anime director Anno down.

I personally don't like how Anno handles drama, but I really liked Nadia (till the island arc and on). I wish he would have had made more lighthearted series before he resigned himself to NGE.

God, this thread is shit.
>>
>>138595134
Proving that animator-driven projects are not an innovation by Anno. I also urge you to consider whether or not the sub-par quality shorts on Animator Expo interspersed with Evangelion fanservice really is doing any improvements in this field.

The other two are also good, even if I personally prefer Magnetic Rose (I'm weak for sci-fi), but think of it in terms of animation.
>>
>>138595116
Have you read my post?
Does the OP talk about Lucas? No, then why the fuck does every Anno thread need to spiral into a comparison between Anno and Lucas?
It happens every fucking time these days making it impossible to talk about Anno's work at all.
You want to do comparisons? Create your own thread about Anno vs Lucas, preferably on /tv/, so you don't need to clutter other threads.
Is it really so difficult to understand?
>>
>>138595226
I argue that even your regular anime on TV is more creative and throughly crafted than the Animator Expo shorts. Even the recent Ghibli movie, the tale of princess kaguya represents a more interesting twist in creative direction.
>>
>>138595241
I'm not saying he just up and invented this sort of project, but we don't get series of various animators showcasing their stuff very often, and certainly not that many (yes, it was short-form, but it got to use more creators that way).
And if we're talking about animation, then there was some really great stuff there, although those ones were mostly from more established animators.

>>138595361

Definitely not.

Okay, first let me tell you one thing newfag:

Threads rarely end up conforming to discussing what the OP indicates should be discussed. Don't like it, go find yourself a moderated forum with a thirteen-year old on a powertrip. I'm sure he'll keep the hundreds of posters at bay for you.

Secondly, it's absolutely obvious why people pull the George-Anno comparison.

George made Star Wars, it was loved, but didn't produce a followup that impressed as much as the first. In fact, some even loathed it.
Now Anno has gone and done something similar, he made NGE, and now he's made Rebuild 3.33 which is in my opinion at least, something that makes the Star Wars prequels look like masterpieces.

People are going to do this all the damned time because it's how they feel. Anno shat the bed in some seriously bad ways with Rebuild. If someone disagrees or wants to elaborate, that's up to them.
>>
>>138595489
Anno did several very good works, he clearly has talent. He just decided he'd rather do shitty rehashes for money instead of continue to use his talent. But why am I responding to an umaruposter, anyway?

Is George Lucas related to anime? No, so why are we discussing it here on /a/?

We get them often enough so that when they are made, there is quality and greatness in the animation, as well as a strong story. With this Animator Expo, all you get is quality traded for quantity.

(plus Hideaki Anno stroking his ego and whoring out EVA in some of the shorts)

Let's be fair, the Animator Shorts don't exactly make big impacts in the animation arena, and the sakuga discussion as centered around TV-anime, movies and OVA's rather than these shorts. Which is understandable, because the animation in these shorts really isn't much to write home about.

Those are three, then he left Gainax and did fucking NOTHING of worth
Lucas did the same thing with American Graffiti, Star wars and Indiana Jones (even thought he didn't direct it)
Once they changed the people around them, their work went to fucking shit, the conclusion is, they may be the responsible for the first creative spark, but people around them were the true talented ones

Because someone mentioned it, and it's a fair comparison when considering Anno as a director.

I completely disagree. The standouts (20min, Robot on the Road, Kanon, some others) all had top-tier animation for any format, and suggesting that it's not much to write home about compared to TV fare is especially ridiculous.

What's your problem? If you want to discuss the real-world situation of Anno as a director, then you had better fucking accept that real world comparisons will be drawn.

It's exactly like any other movie from it's era but done in perfection by Kubrick, the movie is basically heavy dialogue and techno stuff, many did that, none did Star wars.

>>138596135
This thread really shows that George is an entirely different league than Anno. Comparing what they've done with their successes, we see that George really, really did a lot for cinema whereas Anno really only made one popular anime, and more or less kept the riches to himself while not really using his resources to improve the state of things.
>>
Does anyone have the pic of Shinji smoking weed at the end of 3rd impact?
>>
>>138596485
the only thing that set Star Wars apart from its predecessors was its charm though

Kubrick didn't merely take from other movies of the era, he innovated completely. the aesthetic of 2001 is pretty much unparalleled in sci fi and is still frequently ripped - then the writing and presentation itself was nothing like typical sci-fi of the time (or film in general)

It's obvious they're in different leagues, retard. One is Japanese, the other is American. One works in Hollywood film and the other works in the anime industry.

You're essentially comparing primary sources to secondary sources. In the greater picture, yes, they have more influence. But you can't deny the direct influence of secondary source, in this case Evangelion. The economic system of anime was changed and so was the general direction of the content.

Shut up. It's obviously thanks to Evangelion that we have successful anime like SAO and Attack on Titan. Bakemonogatari wouldn't be selling a single copy without evangelion. Every top selling idol anime happened because of Evangelion.

tl;dr : You have take a page from NGE's book if you want your anime to be successful.

It's bold but it's true. Just look up Akihabara and Evangelion. Akihabara was mostly an electronic appliance district before NGE.

Not to mention, it started the whole late night anime broadcast schedule.

As for content, do you really want to debate its influence there? How often do you see pseudo-Evangelion themes in anime from the last two decades?

JESUS FUCK

It was already shifting towards this direction far before EVA as early as the 80's when general consumer electronics were starting to decline and it was switching over to home computers for enthusiasts which started to bring in the consumer who is interested in anime/manga/videogames aka otaku culture.

Get it right you stupid fucking EVA history revisionist shitlords.

In the 80's, in the early 90's it turned into what it is today, fiction heaven. Computer games/manga/anime was there long before Evangelion.

Naturally the Evangelion craze boosted things, but it's not fair to give credit to Evangelion because it sold a lot. Even Gainax was selling otaku computer games in Akihibara before Evangelion.

Do elaborate on the late-night slot though.

>As for content, do you really want to debate its influence there? How often do you see pseudo-Evangelion themes in anime from the last two decades?
I've seen a lot of anime and sci-fi in general, so when I watched Evangelion nearly two decades ago I was able to tell that Evangelion took a LOT of inspiration from other sources, infamously judeo-christian religion.

Evangelion is my favorite anime (Rei is the best girl), but let's not toot it's horn too much.

Considering the fact that Cutie Honey starring Eriko Sato was the worst Cutie Honey adaptation we ever got, fuck no. It had absolutely horrible pacing and direction.

The Live came out 3 years later and it was already heaps above the movie. It tells you a lot about Anno's incompetence as a director.

Here's hoping that the new upcoming Cutie Honey Tears movie fixes everything that was wrong with Anno's version.

This thread in review:

Akihabara was not founded by EVA, the economy was already pushing it to otaku mecca long before EVA showed up.

"The title considered to be the true pioneer of late night anime is Those Who Hunt Elves (エルフを狩るモノたち Erufu o Karu Mono Tachi?) (1996) on TV Tokyo."

And last but not least, EVA is shit.

Good thread, see you next one.

Kojima doesn't really fit.

Most of your audience there at most knows maybe Tolkien and Lovecraft so shitty story telling is the norm.

Kojima didn't create a Star Wars or Eva, he made another Muv Luv.
