Is he right about the current anime industry?
>>
>>138667780
No he did fuck everything up.
Last film was just awful.
>>
yes
He knows it, we know it, yet nothing will change.
>>
>>138667820
>we know it

I don't think so, most of /a/ users watch every seasonal moeshit and haremshit and never realize that they're watching the same thing over and over.
>>
>>138667820
The only way things would change is to make animating a more attractive job to people other than otaku.
>>
>>138667872
Oh I know I'm watching the same thing
I love it. Please help.
>>
>>138667780
Was he right when he said it in the 70s?
>>
He always was right.
>>
>>138667872
Pretty certain the majority of us know we are watching the same shit over and over.

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.

He never said it in the 70s.

The anime industry is rotting because K-ON bringed this wave of moeshit about cute girls doing cute things.

Yes.

He's a grumpy old Luddite who gets a free ride on his shit films because he made some good ones in the early 90s, but he IS right.

He's right.

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.
>>
>>138667780
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.
>>
>>138668396

didnt lucky star start sll the crap?
>>
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.
>>
>>138668368
But whenever a show comes up that is different, then all the normies and anons shitpost it in unison. You can only blame yourself.

>>138668859
>but he never put his hands on tv anime and the industry around this.

Does Lupin the Third, Future Boy Conan or some of the Masterpiece Theater series ring a bell?

He's been criticizing the industry since the 70s.
>>
>>138668859

Has anime ever been truly creative? It's always been adaptions of something.

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?

There is no one more successful.

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.).

I think it may be escapism. HS was kinda fun. Life sucks.
>>
>>138669442
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.

>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.)
>>
>>138669689
I didn't realize we were discussing who was "more professional."

What you assume they think of themselves doesn't factor in either.

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.

>>
>>138671014
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.

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

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.
>>
>>138672505

Literally adds nothing of value. Inferior to the manga and even inferior to the live-action. Good job Yuasa.

Yeah

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

So yeah, I'm half-right, half-not-really-wrong.
>>
>>138675208
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.

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.

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

Yotsuba is a good example, moe MC, rest of the characters are drawn as normal people.

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.
>>
>>138677186
>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.

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.

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.

No, anyone who says that is objectively wrong on that front.

Isn't it growing, though?

Liking anime isn't genetic.

That's not what is being said, the industry just needs more variety at this point.

Yeah, look at OPM, it's reached the shonen level of popularity with only one hot female character who's appearance is played for laughs.

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.

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.
>>
>>138678793
>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.
>>
>>138678793
>nobody in /v/ likes the majority of video games
This is literally the most common reason given that /v/ is shit.
>>
>>138678849
That's why 1996-2008 was litterally the golden age of anime.

Everything started going down after

>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.

You cant take screenshots of other boards 4chan is a terrible place for serious discussion about X themes because 4chan prefer clickbait , imagedumps and "reddit hater XD"

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.

Just out of curiosity, who is he and what studio does he own?
>>
>>138679161
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.
>>
>>138679099
>/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.
>>
>>138679210
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
