ITT: Substance over style.
>>
>>138987720
I am still trying to scrub season 4 from my mind.
>>
>>138987720
Baccano, Cowboy Bebop.
>>
>>138988368
Reuenthal's rebellion makes up for the heavier Terraist presence.
>>
Katanagari, the story was great up until the last episode but the art style was really offputting at times.
>>
>>138988417
Both are style over substance.
>>138988863
Style and substance.
>>
>>138988863
Most people seem to like the artstyle
>>
>>138988917
Style is substance.

Why did you come into the thread then?

>LOGH has negligible style
Did you just skip every scene featuring Mecklinger
>>
>>138988417
I've had Baccano on hold on Episode 7 or something for months and had to force myself to finish Bebop. Bebop has some really dull episodes where it feels like nothing notable is happening.
>>
>>138988417
It's not like Bebop lacks for style, but yes it has a lot of substance while it's mafia and samurai movie influences are comparatively low-key.

Comparing it to Samura Champloo that is, which has a lot less substance but a ton of style.
>>
>>138989683
It has both, like all Yuasa works.

>>138988417
lets also had darker than black and fullmetal alchemist

Bebop has style and substance but it's cool to hate on it for being easily watchable by non-weebs so people pretend it doesn't have substance.
>>
>>138987720
Does /a/ really like LOGH that much?

>>138988368
Same

You must be pretty superficial to think that

I would call this substance

Kill she pls, whit an explosive shotgun or catapult.

How is LOGH notable for having substance though? I thought it was praised for how ambitious in scope it was, which is true and well-deserved especially at the time

I mean, plenty of series slightly dip into themes of democracy vs autocracy or other similar politically-charged themes like LOGH does, is simply having some sort of running motif all it takes to be deemed to have substance? and then if the visuals aren't great then it can be deemed as a substance-over-style series?

this seems like the best place to ask so, with the LoGH LNs finally getting officially released here, are they doing the whole series? I don't want to start buying them only to find out they're doing two volumes and then dropping it or something
>>
>>138987720
Nigga it had style

>>138988368
desu it felt like Reinhard was getting his dick sucked by the author

They've licensed the first three. If sales are good, they'll license more.

Outside of /a/ not really, the only group that worships logh are fujos.

Wew.

I haven't seen it but Legend of the Galactic Heroes seems reasonably stylish to me.
>>
>>138987720
LoGH is actually style > substance though. Its style makes you think you're in for a really deep, complex and nuanced war story, but what you're actually about to watch is about as subtle and nuanced as a middle schooler's first essay on politics.
It does have some great oneliners though.

better than nothing I suppose. how many are there total?

Even if you don't like Eva's substance its style is still fucking great though.

>Substance over style.
It's funny how only Americans are separating style and substance. Those are the two face of the same medal, you can't take one and dismiss the other, escpecially in a medium such as animation which is all about style (since most of anime are adapting some other material, the "substance" of the show is irrelevant to its quality in itself).
>>
>>138996182
>doesn't know what style means
>regurgigates generic oneliner opinion
>>
>>138997877
I love Eva's substance and the style is also great.
>>
>>138998249
So style only means over the top action? The broader definition of "the way a show presents itself" would be much more interesting to have a thread about, otherwise all anyone would be doing is posting slow-paced shows.
>>
>>138988975
I used to think so too but KLK changed my mind about that.
Style matters, but less so than substance.
