Is he right about the current anime industry?
He's a hack, but still has a point, the industry has gone stale as fuck, but there's nothing much we can do about it, even if the entirety of /a/ wanted it to change, elevens still have shit taste.
I'll be honestly tho, moeshit is a guilty pleasure of mine.
Yes get rid of all that annoying Tsundere and weird girls, it's bullshit.
Not in movies but he never put his hands on tv anime and the industry around this. Yoshiyuki Tomino, Mitsuo Hashimoto and Hideaki Anno are the ones who are allowed to say shit about TV anime.
I think people should realize that the same problems afflicting the anime industry are also affecting the film industry: power of media and talent agencies, over reliance on a few big names, few original works.
Anime is probably worse because it is almost exclusively marketed and aimed at a shrinking share of the populace.
Luckily, you can make films for like $1 to $5 million and still make something great. Anime isn't so lucky. Animation is expensive as fuck.
Doesn't he make movies and show for kids and families? That type of anime still exists and has nothing to do with Otaku.
I think he makes a very specific type of anime that doesn't really fit into a broader standard of what "anime" is.
>because K-ON bringed this wave of moeshit
Do you think a wave of moeshit was started by K-ON? Lol. K-ON! is a apotheosis of it. The moeshait started much earlier.
how is no one growing tired of High School settings and themes?
and character archetypes are so predictable...
Anno and Miyazaki are just losers who unable to compete with modern anime.
And so they angrily envy their more successful colleagues.
Who is successfull today in anime, aside from SHAFT, the long runners, and some of the new hype machines (AoT, Sword Art Online, One Punch Man etc.).
And Anno never seemed successfull aside from two (Nadia and NGE)
Not really, japanese College is pretty cool too, is just that entereting to a good one can be pretty hard, but once you're in you can relax.
The problem is that most otaku don't even go to college, so it's easier for them to relate to High School settings.
>successful today in anime
>One Punch Man
>The rise and fall of Japan's otaku in three stages. The first generation are called "otaku aristocrats" -- early adopters from the late Seventies and early Eighties who felt the need to proselytize and convert their friends to the lifestyle. This sense of noblesse oblige eventually gave rise to the second generation of "otaku elite" from the late Eighties through the late Nineties, who spurned and scorned anyone without the good sense to share their taste in entertainment. And finally, this self-centered attitude reached its apex in the current generation of "moé-otaku," purveyors and consumers of anime, comics, and video games that feature infantile female characters instead of plotlines.
Okada takes the current generation of otaku to task for continuing to "ghettoize" themselves, retreating ever-deeper into individual virtual worlds when they encounter any sort of resistance to their interests. Where's the sense of pride, of camraderie? he wonders. He decries their inward focus, their passivity, their apparent lack of desire to learn about or interact with subcultures outside of their own tiny worldviews. (The last is a hallmark difference, at least in Okada's idealized view, between the moe-otaku and traditional old-school otaku, who actually forced themselves to partake of genres or titles they didn't particularly like in order to broaden their horizons.)
Of course he is. Just take a look at the catalog in this fucking board.
>4chan represents the current state of japanese anime
Maybe, but he can't really talk since he made that piece of shit. Spirited Away is his last good film. Howl's, Ponyo and Rises all range from mediocre to two bombs weren't enough.
>Make the same family oriented movies over and over.
>Thinks his words hold weight.
Nah, All his works were targeting the people who still watch Lady and the Tramp in 2016.
admit it, this always happens with humanity. someone makes something good and there will always be an asshole who complicates everything just because they wanted to make the most profit with the least effort.
let's put bread as an example:
naturally baked bread takes only water, flour and time to make, that's it, you don't need yeast. bacteria naturally grows inside the dough to make bread a very complex meal rich in nutrients. you just need time to let it rest a couple of hours so it rises. totally worth it because it is tastier than that bland shit you get from stores.
commercial bread on the other hand has 31 ingredients... 31!!! what the fuck!? why this many?! because the asshole who wants profit thought that it takes too much time and effort to make bread rise and be nutritious, so they pump dough with all this chemical shit to make up for it. CACHING!!! MONEY MOTHERFUCKER!
same goes with anime. things got stupid because someone wanted to make something more practical. fuck stories, fuck character development, fuck character design, fuck years of art mastery, let's all do the same shit and rig it all in a fucking computer! who gives a shit?! they will pay for it in DVD sales, but don't worry! it has tits and acts like a retarded brain dead child so they don't have to think too hard about the story and there is no way it will hurt their feelings! YES I AM LOOKING AT YOU DAGASHI KASHI... you piece of shit anime.
Fuck this. fuck it all. FUCK MOE, FUCK WAIFUS, FUCK EVERYTHING.
No one bothers to check for the validity of these quotes.
It's gotten to the point where some people actually believe Miyazaki said "Anime was a Mistake"
Don't ever believe quotes on the internet. Ever.
Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Monster, Tatami Galaxy, Ping Pong, Satoshi Kon movies, Lain, Texhnolyze, Ergo Proxy, just to name a few.
Monogatari is a gourmet harem, they try to hide with "complex" dialogues but it's no different than any other generic haremshit.
Just look at the cover, there's only one male character while the rest are all girls.
>Almost all Japanese animation is produced with hardly any basis taken from observing real people, you know.
>It's produced by humans who can't stand looking at other humans.
These are good things.
I like watching what I watch and I have better taste than anyone on /a/
I'm not seeing any issues. Maybe you guys should just watch what you enjoy, and ignore what some group of fags on /a/ has to say about it.
that doesn't make it a harem. Besides the 3-4 other male characters in the series who make somewhat frequent appearances, only 3 of the girls in the show actually have any kind of romantic feelings for the MC, and the rest just hang around him. of those, he picked 1 to date, and he's tied down forever with another so there's no room for any kind of harem
I jsut don't see how you could compare that to what I consider a harem, something like Nisekoi, where there's at least 4 girls all competing for the boring MC's dick and he refuses to pick one
because people want more serious anime and they then try and force that onto some that are not suppose to be. The fact that there is a lot of moe shit is a problem and humans like changes in tone.
going to what OP said yes and no, its not really the medium but what we have done with it. Everyone sucks Cowboy Bepop's and Ghost in the Shell's dick but they also consume a lot more moe shit.
>you don't need yeast. bacteria naturally grows inside the dough to make bread a very complex meal rich in nutrients.
You do realize that the "bacteria" growing inside the dough is actually a wild variant of yeast right?
>ignoring the rest of my post where I mention he is stuck with one for life, dating another, and told the last one "NO" when she mentioned it to him
it's not a harem, no matter how hard you try to force it, it panders a lot, it has a lot of fanservice, just like the source material, but it's not a harem show sorry
MY ANIME HAS TO BE SERIOUS AND MUST CONTAIN DEEP SYMBOLISM AND CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
OTHERWISE IT'S SHIT
Fuck you fags.
no you are right anon, I should have specified that. I was too busy being enraged. ever tried real bread? that shit is crunchy and the way it melts in your mouth is something very unique.
I do, but look at any western station's lineup
>crime drama #300000
>workplace comedy #250
most of it is repetitive and rehashed shit, because it's hard to come up with new ideas, which is why you get only a few good shows out of each season even on western TV
i dont necessarily dislike escapism i just think it would be better if it wasnt the majority of whats made
also thanks for your concern but i dont go on 4chan too often anymore
Well it has to be good too
Old anime is better
Moe = beauty
beauty hater = awful taste
It's just obvious.
I'm sure we could get out of this rut with a second season of Lucky Star.
Of course he is.
Azumanga Daioh is at the root of moeshit. Not that 90's anime didn't have its own streak of awful in ridiculous bombastic ecchi shows completely devoid of content, or 80s with it's endless robot shows riding gundam's success.
Moe = shit
beauty hater = awful taste
It's just obvious.
Yeah, my grandmother used to make fresh bread for special occasions.
Admittedly, I'm either too busy or too lazy to make bread myself. Thankfully though, there are local places that make bread every morning.
shinobu is romantic but he's tied down to her forever
snake was never interested in the MC as you find out in s2, she was in love with the idea of being in love and the MC was the first guy she latched onto
cat asks the MC out in s2, which gets her a resounding "NO"
doll has an obsession with muscles and an autistic lack of boundaries but nothing more
his sisters and him play incest chicken as part of a couple jokes, but that's it
monkey's a lesbian who just wants to get closer to crab and make the MC feel awkward
crab then is the only girl left, and the girl the MC chose to date and be with
Kekkai Sensen it's the kind of modern stuff that every anime should be:
>movie quality of animation, audio and plot
>free of any otaku influence
>global appeal aiming not only the japanese audience
it doesn't have to do with how good you think it is
the OP is talking about originality and companies pushing out derivative, pandering shit like capeshit, or the ten millionth CSI show or the newest sitcom from some comedian
which you get maybe 1-2 shows per season that isn't that no matter where you look
why should anime be any different?
Why doesn't japan produce masterpieces like House of cards in anime form?
>golden boy, ping pong club, ghost in the shell, macross plus, lupin movie, slayers movie, armitage 3, gunsmith cats OVAs
Damn 1995 was dank as fuck, probably my favourite year
I'd just like to point out that if half of these (particularly in the SoL/comedy/drama sections) came out today they'd be derided as pandering garbage for having ecchi, or girls, or teenagers as major features.
>Azumanga Daioh is at the root of moeshit.
I think it's To Heart, a Visual Novel adaption:
I don't even like shows that depend on moe to get attention but in my mind anyone that uses the term moeshit is from /v/, manimefag or any other kind of obnoxious anime "expert"
>But moe = beauty
False. Don't try to cheat me.
things I miss in anime
>silence, there's just no silence in modern anime
>25 minute episodes
>and I mean nudity not some forced panty shot
>those animation peaks out of nowhere
>openings done by girls and not some jap attempting to be HAAAAAAARDCORE (i'm looking at you fear and loathing)
you get it anon, it's up to us to pass it on to others and keep our good values.
I am so glad to see that people with good taste still exist in this world. Only we can save anime from the hands of otaku.
Anyone here actually prefer old anime from the 70's and 80's but isn't actually old?
I grew to like Anime with Rose of Versailles, Orginal Dragon Ball, Lupin III and so on and not stuff like Naruto or Death Note.
Nips are very simplistic with their taste in fiction so all anime are always shallow or pseudo-2deep4me when it actually isn't if you take a moment to understand the creator (That's bad writing BTW).
I do. There's just something about the general artstyle of older shows that appeals to me.
To be honest, I think what gives off the impression of Japanese writing being "simple" is that the bits of their literature that manage to trickle into the English-speaking market is quite literally intended for children.
Yeah, a lot of harems, self-inserts, and Mary Sues are as popular as ever. Not to mention that most studios are stuck at the high school mindset, and that everything meaningful and world changing happened during that time. This isn't mention how poor the writing, especially dialogue, anime seems to think is actually acceptable.
We're talking about anime here. I'm referring to that. I don't doubt that there are some good writing there, but japan as a culture is better when focusing on logic and mathematics.
Self-insert harems go back way further than that. "Moe" as a character archetype is applicable to many things all over the place but the neutered inoffensive otakubaiting SoL commonly known as moeshit is a entirely a 21st century phenomenon.
This is contrary to the distorted /v/eddit view of reality where they throw the term at anything with a cute girl, of course.
Just like old shows a fedora hat is something very uncommon in these days. Something you might thing you was cool for its own time but you wont actually brag about it.
But a fedorafag wears the hat proudly thinking that attaching him self to something something from the past makes him look sophisticated and separates him from the ignorant masses that cant understand how good things used to be. In times and even brags that even though he is "young" he admires the time where man acted like man.
This is exactly the same thing that happens in this thread
>The past was better
>Everything is shit now
>Only we have good taste everyone else is stupid
Just replace the fedora with LOGH and you are done.
You know you could avoid all this confusion if you just called it highschool SoL or four-girl SoL or something instead of "moeshit," since that word originated and is largely used as a buzzword for /v/ crossboarders.
Didn't he un-retire again to make a CG movie?
Gaze into the abyss and the abyss will gaze into you.
Another thing I fucking hate in modern anime is that it almost never have a conclusion and when it does it's fucking shit
Since everything is an adptation of a ongoing manga/vn you name it, there's simply no ending whatsoever or some half assed anime only ending
if older anime most of the time the anime would end with everyone dead or the heroes in married and with children
but I guess you can't do it cause NEET's would sperg about their waifus having children
At many anime the ending is smeared with a hint of sequels and it makes me sad.
Nigerian guy's mid 2015 tier list.
They seem to love the current industry.
Just a reminder that Miyazaki and many others from the industry that have spoken against the moe trend don't hate cute girls and they don't pretend to ban your waifus from anime. Nobody hate cute girls on Japan, especially on the anime industry. Miyazaki is obviously a lolicon. The problem is cute girls become the entire center of the industry and everything must work in favor of moe, what limit creativity. Moe put too many restrictions and fanservice used to be a service to the fans, not the center of the industry.
Just a friendly reminder that high schools, harems, tsundere, idols, traps, no shading, shitty endings and probably whatever else you're complaining about, except for CGI mechs, have been standard features for decades.
Lain is not really 'fedoracore', it's more '2deep' as you mentioned yourself.
Anyway, it's retarded to categorize them like that in the first place, so don't even bother-
LOGH is a good anime, it is flawed, and people often miss what it is about, but it was a nice ride none the less.
Definitely one of my favorites in this medium, despite its rather obvious flaws.
Miyazaki is a hack. He hasn't done a single interesting film since the 90s. His last what, 4? films were nothing but rehashing the same (admittedly pretty) visual style he has always used. It's a shame that people who actually try to innovate and bring new ideas (instead of just hypocritically complaining) like Kon and Nakamura end up dying in their 50s.
You'd be suprised. There's almost no shitposting, and the only arguing is which character is stronger, or which waifu is better. Everything is civilized discussion from what i've seen so far
Care to explain? I haven't watched it since whenever it originally came out, but I remember my main complaint about it being the fact that its entire premise is just a set up for a generic love story in the second half of the movie. I just thought there were so many potential interesting conflicts and character arcs that could have been in the film but none of them were.
I notice these things, but I'm one of the many that escape into anime because we find reality and 3D disgusting.
Yes, I notice the cliches and extremely generic characters and plots. That's irrelevant.
I don't get western fans, complaining about fanservice, moe, and other things so much. I guess more westerners are normalfags.
That's literally what I wanted the movie to be going into it. The entire movie could have been a perfect finale to Miyazaki's career. But it shoves it aside to make room for its love story.
Birth rate started to drop right after K-ON aired.
Yes, most of the problems Japan is suffering is anime fault.
err most modern bread is the product of wheat varieties selected pretty much entirely based on their mechaincal and gross yield properties, taste and nutritional content are rarely considered important at all
similarly with milk and meat, proper milk is high in vitamins and well balanced fat profiles usually from grass or other forages
cheap milk is produced from high yielding holsteins fed extremely low nutritional content feeds other than protein and starch (because real nutritional content is physiologically expensive so the varieties with higher nutritional values inherently yield less)
then the milk is pasteurised to reduce the bacteria content and extend shelf life, all of the milk fat is extracted, passed through a fine mesh to "homogenise" it which reduces the size of the fat globules to prevent the milk fat settling out then mixed back in at variable concentrations to create the laughably titled "whole milk", "semi-skimmed", "skimmed", and "whatever percentage of fat is marketable at the moment"
the monogastrics ie. poultry and pig meat production is produced from a few extremely inbred lines of almost identical very fast growing hybrids
they are bred to convert cheap grain into cheap meat flavoured protein
good food has never in real terms been cheaper yet global food systems especially yours america have become incredibly unhealthy and fixated on marketing crap
good nutrition is incredibly important and in real financial terms provides much improved health and quality of life.
as a general rule the less opportunity some lab monkey to has had to fuck around with it the healthier it tends to be.
>Do you guys really think anyone has more authority on the subject than him?
There are a number of veterans around I'd say have a more complete perspective than Miyazaki, who has mostly sequestered himself in children's/family anime and movies and spent the last fifty years wishing it were the 60s again.
I certainly hope all the posts in this thread is satire.
man, I could only dream to taste the best possible bread and cheeses in america. I can only get so far by making anything with commercial stuff. best thing I can do is grow stuff in my garden.
what are your stances with the topic of this thread man?
So why is more anime being made a good thing if the variety doesn't increase?
He invented anime to be a wholesome friendly medium. Now that dream has been throw out the door thanks to moefags. Killing anime is the only option he has left, but DDoS'ing nyaa can only accomplish so much. He's become a vigilante, a sad clown. He's the hero anime needs, but not the one it deserves.
>accurately points out the poisonous expectations 2D waifus give otaku
>otaku, in response, will say their 2D waifus are better than real women anyway
the future refused to change
every fucking season half or more of the shows are harems set in wacky high schools. My backlog's way too big as it is with the few unique shows coming out each season, I can't imagine how bad it'd be if I was into that shit anymore.
And everything's based on an LN these days. Everything.
>And everything's based on an LN these days. Everything.
I wish for just a week the mods would start banning people for obviously incorrect shit like this. They should also get the people misusing "seinen".
I'm not even interested in your overall point, I'm interested in how someone can be so fucking wrong. Am I not allowed to reply to you unless I'm talking about certain parts of what you said?
I have a strong feeling that the people that say that and actually mean it will either change once they get older or commit suicide because even living has become too "troublesome."
No, he's not. There's still a lot of stuff coming out that caters to all niches. And no, for people complaining here, there isn't anything wrong with high school settings or moe either. It has fans, and they support it. Why the fuck would the opinions of people who don't buy a single damn thing matter at all anyways?
Honestly, I don't even know why most of the people bitching here even watch anime. If you think it's all garbage and beneath your superior taste, why keep watching it?
well, I'm right about haremshit and highschool hijinks composing a stupendous amount of every season's anime. I was using hyperbole about LNs.
So yeah, I'm half-right, half-not-really-wrong.
No, I'm saying that there is nothing wrong with the genre period. You may not like it, but unless you actually buy the series you do like, your opinion is meaningless compared to the fans that go out and buy the actual products. And that's all irrelevant, because there is other stuff being produced as well, if you don't like harems/moe/highschool settings, etc. fine, watch something else. But this constant bitching is pretty stupid.
Is attempting to create comics pointless? I don't mean manga, comics. I can't create manga since I'm a filthy gaijin. I'd like to create manga in all but name. I don't see why more people don't try to be creators since it's easier than ever.
You know how it usually is here. People like to express their frustration at stuff they don't understand the appeal of when they see it as being popular at the expense of the kind of anime they do like.
99% chance you'll have to sustain yourself on oats and water every day, drawing furry and diaper porn commissions to get some money
0.9% chance you'll slave away as contracted artist for some comic studio
0.1% chance you'll launch a successful series
who said it has to be the best possible
just support good responsible producers the small farmers who strive to produce good tasty and nutritious food at a reasonable price
it doesn't make you a stupid hipster if you do it for the right reasons ie you and your families health and environmental responsibility
seasonality of production and area specialised crops are often much cheaper than you would think,
farming in this way is a difficult knowledge intensive job but significantly less dependent on many of the inputs of high input agriculture, though you can't simply just throw stuff at crops and expect it to grow
be demanding of your food and be prepared to ask difficult questions if you can't get an answer then vote with your feet.
It's frustrating to see all the same. All the more so, since you see the exact same kind of stupid ass arguments being thrown around in other places, "I wish we wouldn't have all this gross anime being produced, fucking otaku, why can't I have more mature anime for mature people like myself produced, that I can then watch for free and talk about?"
I already knew that, really. I guess my question was pointless. I have nothing else I'd really like to do, I'm willing to draw 14 hours a day for years if it means I can rise even slightly above being a completely replaceable and pointless person.
Still strikes me as strange with all the information, aids, and methods to communicate that so few have done anything decent.
My main problem with Anime at the moment is that it has been devolving, rather than evolving. I mean, 30 years ago, tsundere was a character flaw that a character would outgrow. Nowadays, tsundere is just a character that MC will grow to accept.
Actually, I agree with you completely there. I don't think they're bad, it's just that the continuing plot of trying to find a permanent home without being separated just isn't funny. Still, it's better than being plain old unfunny like those hippos.
uhm. no I totally agree with you man, the same could be said about all the people here who consume "commercial" animation. good stories are out there and they want to be enjoyed and shared, it all depends on how well you want to be after consuming good entertainment that makes you grow in a positive manner.
yeah... I'll keep a lookout for local farms.
Theres also this.
Lots of people do, yeah. I can understand the people who are just bored with the over-saturation and like something different here and there, but I don't get the people who have a rabid hatred of it motivated by their morality. And these people say that they're fans. How can they be fans if they hate anime so much?
Regarding this thread? Well he's not wrong but he's not entirely right, the industry is going through a transition and has probably grown too dependent on moe harems, though there are still some real crackers out there, it depends on the people really, generally the series that I find interesting are oddly enough a little like dagashi kashi with that exposition of reality and culturally relevant ideas coupled with humour and some cliches, there are some incredibly good shorts, eg gakkatsu was enjoyable, a lot of good stuff will never truly be mainstream and attract the big money but it can be interesting
so honestly I don't really know what to think
most of this stuff is targeted kids or self insert Otaku, I'm just an adult human who occasionally uses foreign cartoons as either a means of relaxation or insight into stuff I've never thought would interest me
>select all pies
I agree with this statement.
A show can have moe moments and some of the girls can be written/drawn as moe.
That doesn't make the entire show/manga Moe.
Yotsuba is a good example, moe MC, rest of the characters are drawn as normal people.
Lucky star is exclusively drawn as moe.
Fuck you too man
But Urusei Yatsura was over 200 episodes worth of an alien girl trying to get a tsundere boy to admit he loves her.
nobody fact checks anything anymore, people just say shit and the crazier or more quotable it sounds that's what becomes the truth. Even a quick Google search is beyond a lot of people
Yes they did, just check the ratings and you will see that interest dropped once TMS stopped doing it.
If only that ratings magic worked for Space Dandy for Bones, maybe if it was cleaner and on a time slot where people are actually awake.
Yeah, you're right about that. I guess I associate that archetype more with pretending not to like somebody and that feeling of warmth it's supposedly supposed to give you when they are showing their more tender side.
I get that feeling more when Ataru does it than when Lum does it.
Because it's a genre that very few filmmakers even in Japan still make movies about.
Go fucking watch the movies made by Beat Takeshi. You will find a lot of similarities to the overarching plot episodes of Bebop (aka the ones dealing with his past and Vicious).
The goofy one-shot episodes were usually taken from other genres. Mushroom Samba was the blaxploitation episode.
>Because it's a genre that very few filmmakers even in Japan still make movies about.
While that's true now, I don't think there was ever that much anime that dealt explicitly with the yakuza even back when every major Japanese movie studio was churning out yakuza movies.
Reviewing all the new shows introduced throughout the seasons last year, and I have to wonder, why are half the new shows taking place in highschool or is about highschool students? Isn't the average fan of anime, similar to video games fans, in their 30s?
How many times can people watch the same character cliches, such as the Tsundere, Class/Wealthy Girl, the Childhood Friend and loli, before getting sick of it? These cliches were rampant in the early 90s, if not older. So, it's not like it's this is trendy or an original concept the audience would easily fall for.
Do the Japanese really find the average highschool student who claims to be normal, but really isn't, and gathers a harem of girls who apparently have no personal lives, thinking of only the MC, and finding no one else attractive, intriguing? Is it a cultural custom, like their humor, where the Jap audience gets annoyed if they break formula?
Cause to me, given the popularity of highschool and harems, it really seems like the Japs are stuck in the past, kind of like how some gamers in their 30s only play arena shooters or 2d Platformers, only there's an entire country of them.
>most of /a/ users watch every seasonal moeshit and haremshit
Yeah, I'm the minority here.
Only Boku Dake, Haikyuu, and She & Her Cat this season for me.
I've dropped everything else.
Most of the things I want to watch are next season, so I haven't even watched anything this season. It's given me plenty of time to work on my backlog at least.
This. I see so many /a/nons not only admitting it, but trying to defend their terrible taste of harems, or why it's okay that the majority of the new shows are about high school. Can /a/ really claim they're different to casuals when their preferences are on par with them?
This man will save the industry.
>Isn't the average fan of anime, similar to video games fans, in their 30s?
Doesn't matter, it's not about seeing your life in anime form.
>How many times can people watch the same character cliches, such as the Tsundere, Class/Wealthy Girl, the Childhood Friend and loli, before getting sick of it? These cliches were rampant in the early 90s, if not older. So, it's not like it's this is trendy or an original concept the audience would easily fall for.
It's not like real people are all that unique either.
/a/ is the /v/ of anime. Of course, they're going to complain about it. Most of us here aren't posting to praise anime. Browsing /co/, /tv/, /mu/, /k/, or /pol/, or any board with an interest, for that matter, and you will find more people critiquing a work than singing how awesome it is. In fact, that's the entire appeal of posting in an anonymous imageboard. It's people like you who need to leave if you can't deal with other opinions.
He was barely implied in 3.0, it was essentially Kazuya Tsurumaki. Also the movie was not better or worse than 2.0.
Rebuild of Evangelion exists only for one thing : make a lot of money. Anime industry is something very precious to Anno, he literally wanted Evangelion to be a huge hit in the past to revive it. If the Rebuild movies take so much time to be done, it's because he wants to make cash during the longest time possible.
After that, him and all the talents of studio Khara will make anime a lot better with tons of high budget original projects. People will watch it because Anno will be in the credits. Animator Expo was a preview to show how talented Khara's animators were.
Anno will save the industry. What a time to be alive.
>/a/ is the /v/ of anime.
No, fuck off. Just because we're critical of certain shows and like to bitch doesn't mean we hate 95% of anime, and that attitude is one of the most cancerous ones you can bring to a board.
Joke on you, looks like me and this >>138677995 anon has very similar taste. Yeah, most of the things I want to watch are also next season.
This season is just to weak. You can't denied it, imo.
This sums it up pretty well, i think. But as it has probably been said, things aren't going to change unless it stops making money/maximizing profit (or alternatively, something else starts making more money.)
If you can't at least understand it, if not outright sympathize with it, you're absolutely a normalfag. It's about escaping the grimy, chaotic, dirty, repulsive real world for a smaller, idealized world. Whether it's a constant attempt at escape or only for 24 minutes a day makes no difference, the desire is the same.
Stop trying to speak for us, anons. We're not a fucking hivemind community. We're not Reddit. We have our own thoughts and opinions. I frankly agree with those anons that people need to stop browsing /a/ if they can't tolerate the fact that people have more selected and limited taste, no matter how narrow.
Not being fond of the majority of the anime industry isn't a goddamn problem and doesn't determine if you're a fan or not. Seriously, do you anons honestly think people here need to like the majority of anime to post here? No one in /tv/ likes the majority of films, nobody in /v/ likes the majority of video games, /mu/ doesn't even like mainstream music. Stop pretending your voice matters.
We're better off now than we were in the 90s.
Almost no one was making any actual original anime (as in, not an adaptation of anything) in that decade aside from Sunrise, who used it as way of getting people to buy model kits. It was one of the big reasons Anno said he wanted to make Eva in the first place, because no one was doing anything creative on their own.
>Stop pretending your voice matters.
Just thought I'd let you know that this part in particular made me laugh.
As for the rest of it, you don't HAVE to watch everything. But if you watch two shows a season and say it's all shit without even watching a lot of them then you're just outing yourself as a retard.
>using /tv/ and /v/ as examples like they should be emulated
Those boards are absolute garbage. That said, no one's telling you you have to like the majority of the 150+ anime that come out every year to post on /a/. They're telling you that liking only ten of them even enough to watch means you probably aren't a fan.
>All those arguments again
This season only two shows are HS setting, the others have really cool themes.
I saw Hayao Miyazaki at a grocery store in Tokyo yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn't want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything. He said, "ああ、あなたは今のようにやっていますか？" I was taken aback, and all I could say was "Huh?" but he kept cutting me off and going "ハァッ？ハァッ？ハァッ？" and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw Miyazaki trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen academy awards in his hands without earning them. The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like "Sir, you need to pay for those first." At first he kept pretending to be retired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
When she took one of the awards and started SCANNING it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually "任意の電気infetterenceを防止します," and then turned around and winked at me. I don't even think that's a word. After she scanned each award and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by telling her it was a mistake really loudly.
/v/ and /tv/ are shit not because they don't like most of the content that their board is based on, but because it consists mostly of shitposting. Ever since bane posting became a thing, /tv/ transformed into a shitposting board because now it is infested by people who are just trying to act ironic to fit in with chan culture. /v/ is bad because it is the most populated board and people treat it like a new /b/, and just shitpost all day. Barely any discussion goes on in either of these boards which is why they're bad. At least if you don't like anime or videogames you still discuss them.
It would be impossible to like video games as a whole in /a/. The majority of the mainstream games are pretty stagnant, (almost half of it is FPS) and the rest is poorly made indie games, or rushed crowdfunded ones that ripped off the audience. I can see why /v/ is pretty pissed.
It makes me laugh, honestly. The owner comes off as so bitter (no shit you can't make what you want to make, you're a subcontractor) and the animator's just really passionate and happy.
>/v/ funded a guy with no video game experience and was going to release the game on the fucking Dreamcast.
Nah, anon. It's fucking hilarious. It's like /a/ using Crunchyroll, only to find out it was funding some shitty anime like SAO, Accel, or Index.
When he says "we" he speaks for the studio's directors.
When you don't simply want to draw cute girls and when you actually want to make something original I think it's really a PAIN to work in this industry
