Hey I've seen this thread before.
Although the last successful one used a much better image for the OP.
>>
For me it's one of the most important things in an anime.

Look at all the hype for Koutetsujou no Kabaneri, which as far as we know is Attack on Titan with trains.

If the anime has a good visual direction, good pacing, and a decent storytelling, people love it. I know I do.
>>
>>138719952
None, it's always pretentious garbage trying to cover up that their story is shit.
>>
Plot is all that matters, I don't even watch anime anymore, I just read wikipedia's plot summaries and now I'm finishing twenty anime an hour
>>
Writing (plot, character development, dialogue) >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> voice acting >>> visual style > OST > animation quality >> other sound design

KyoAni is a terrible studio

>>138722258
Nips can't into writing though.
>>
>>138722258
>emphasizing writing this much
Have fun burning out on anime in a couple years. If you want writing read a book.
>>
>>138722258
>OST and QUALITY that low
what the fuck?
>>
>>138722258
You have a terrible taste.

Visual direction is more important than story for sure. After all most anime have very derivative and cliched plots, so execution is more important than content. Good visual style is important to pulling off a story well, but voice acting and OST also help with the execution. So my ranking would probably be:

1st Tier Importance
>Art Direction
>Voice Acting
>OST

2nd Tier Importance
>Character Design
>Animation
>Sound Direction
>Writing (Dialogue)

3rd Tier Importance
>Writing (Plot, story)
>Other Art Assets (i.e. background designs)
>>
Visual direction is by far the most important aspect for me. I don't care if the story is shit if the visuals are pretty enough.
>>
>>138722392
It's because I read literature that I have high standards for writing

If you're a pleb so easily swayed by pretty visuals like this guy >>138722794 then I'm actually pretty embarrassed for you.

You're only dumbing yourself down so that you can enjoy trash.
>>
Visual direction.

>>138722843
If you can't appreciate good visual direction and prefer writing, in a medium known for its visual direction, over visual direction, you're the pleb I'm afraid.
>>
>>138722843
So obvious but still pretty funny, 8/10, would respond again.

If you actually did enjoy good literature you'd find anime pretty much impossible to enjoy. So my guess is you just read trashy genre fiction and have similar taste in anime (i.e. pulpy serial fiction stories).
>>
>>138722965
It's the only thing that anime stands out in compared to other media.

Wrong.

Genre fiction is for literal double digit IQ retards who are easily entertained by "fun" genre trash

If you enjoy garbage like game of thrones or lord of the rings you probably enjoy trash like hyouka because it's "pretty"

I wish there were more good film directors working right now. Who do we have? Hara and Katabuchi, maybe now Yamada is focusing on features. Yuasa getting back into it. I dunno, it just feels like there haven't been many really great feature length movies lately. Has anyone seen Harmony yet? It's unsubbed but looks promising?

And SnK doesn't get anyone hyped, right? Hell, even the visual appeal of Kabaneri is mostly just because of Mikimoto designs.

Visual direction is a part of the storytelling process and thus of the writing. The story is told through both the texts and the way the scenes are framed.

I agree, I think it's silly to try and separate - let alone rank - different parts of a multifaceted work.

Don't kid yourself. Anime is known for cute girls, aura powerups, and robots.
>>
>>138723450
What it's know for and what it's good at are not necessarily the same.
>>
>>138722258
>other sound design
It's seriously good when sound design is great. Go watch Yozakura quartet (the good one not the shit 2008 one)

Good thing he literally said "known for," then.
>>
>>138723514
Are you implying anime is bad at cute girls, aura power-ups, or robots?
>>
>>138723555
I can't speak for that anon, I'm just arguing that good visuals are important.

>>138723610
No.

>>138721886
Well, half of a story is the medium/setting, so isn't making sure the visuals match the story you are telling incredibly important? A brilliant cinematographer can't save a shit script, and a brilliant script can't do shit with horrible cinematography.
>>
>>138723233
You realize some of the most important parts of books and stories in general lies in how the author builds their world? The scenery and descriptions in The Great Gastby, for instance, are highly important for creating the world in which the story and characters are built. Things that make a story "great" lie in every aspect and how the author uses it.

>>138724983
that's a famous /lit/ troll image

>>138725061
Even so, it it does have some validity, depending on how you rate works.
