It matters to me when it's supplemental to the story at hand and doesn't account for the entirety of a show's substance.

When visual direction is striking because of how it meshes with a story/narrative/setting rather than just being distinct in its own right, I think it makes a world of difference. Flash without substance may be impressive from a technical standpoint, but it loses all value for me as a viewer if it doesn't compliment something greater.
>>
>>139654501
Why is narrative substance?
>>
>>139654501
The only good thing about Kaiba was the visuals though.
>>
>>139654501
The goal of good visual direction is that it DOES complement the narrative.
>>
None. I'm blind.
>>
>>139656222
That's just it, I'd argue that solely narrative without other complimentary elements lacks substance as well. It's the combination of clear direction in writing and in visuals that turns a show from a conglomeration of ideas into something truly communicative in the medium.

>>139656438
I'd disagree. It may have faltered a bit on the end stretch, but there was certainly a very solid meshing of imagery and narrative concepts throughout the series.

>>139657368
Exactly. The problem is that many people equate good visuals with good visual direction, when that most certainly isn't the case.
>>
>>139653900
That's a pretty shit grid for the movie and doesn't do it justice at all. They're all basically the same shot except the middle right.

>>
>>139653900
Most anime fans care about it a lot, seeing as how that's the only good thing about Eva, which is like, one of the most popular anime ever.
>>
Considering most anime is animated like shit, I put quite a lot of value in it

Anime with plain or very similar looking locations bore me very fast. Samurai Champloo was a good example, there were no unique locations because it tried way too hard to be historical in that respect. Made half the episodes completely unmemorable on its own, without considering the bad writing and shit characters

>>139658076
It was actually a really touching film. The only thing I didn't like was the romantic pairing bullshit. It felt like Okada swapped the pairs just to try to not be cliche.

>>139658122
It is when making one of these "visual direction" grids. You can't convey animation in these so you need to show off a good variety of shot composition and colors to make it look nice. If it's just the same shit in each image it will look bland, like the OP's.

Here's a far less bland one.

TTGL, Madoka, Eva and Samurai Champloo are all well written to varying degrees, at least in the context of what they tried to achieve. With Space Dandy it's mixed, based on the ep but same goes for the visual direction. Haven't finished Zankyou. I guess you're right with KnK but the visual direction wasn't consistently good.

It sets out itself to follow the path of an ancient epic wrapped in a super robot aesthetic as you mentioned. It avoids the classic problem featured in anime writing, being over expository and uses a balanced amount of dialogue, action and visuals to present its narrative. It's thematically coherent and its themes are evident in all the aspects I mentioned as well, making it overall a cosistent package. It achieves this all without the problem of forcing character reactions to serve its thematic purpose and instead has the plot flow naturally and has the characters react in ways that you'd expect them to react based on their personality traits and experience.

K-On is a magnificent peep show and you know it. The songs are the cute, and Yui's characterization and body language are 10/10.

That's all still turd shining. They can really get me to beat my dick. I'll give em that.

To me a KyoAni production means a few things:
>A few really well done moments where body movement is animated fluidly in a way that encourages me to jack off.
>Hot official art
>Character songs and other shit.

The actual shows are almost always intolerable. KnK was a clumbsy shitfest. The fact that you had to go back to K-On to demonstrate them at their artistic level is telling.

We've had this discussion before, Kara no Kyoukai has always been generally regarded as having both clever twists and good writing, that is why the novels got popular in literary communities in the first place before it was even a commercial product.

Anyway, here's a grid, I really liked how the 7th film of the Kara no Kyoukai movies had an opening CG scene that manages to convey that toxic/creepy atmosphere that serves as a huge foreshadowing of the main antagonist in the film.

It's easy, go watch any movie made before 1940 and it will become evident how directorial techniques can become outdated.

Tomino still directs the same way he did in the 80's so some people see that as "outdated". The battles in G-Reco really give off the feel of the original Gundam trilogy.

Personally, I like it. The way he directs battles is somehow very engaging and interesting. It has something that most other mecha directors lack.
>>
>>139669634
I've seen a few, they didn't come off as outdated to me. Hell, better than most today.

>>139669728
Yeah, I think there's plenty of appeal in that. Stuff that was common back then can come off strikingly auteur under a new coat of paint.

A lot. Anime is a visual audio medium. If the visuals are boring, then already 50% of what the work has to offer is garbage.
>>

some pretty good episodes but I disagree
>>

Fuck off you kyoani shill.
Phantom World had no compelling visual symbolism, and that's probably due to the lack of legitimately writing.

That holds true for almost every PA Works anime because they don't have good directors.

Best visual direction of the season, already confirmed and I'm not even from the future.

Anyone have Kobayashi's Kill la Kill grids?
>>
>>139671463
I don't know about visual direction, but I'm expecting this to be a very entertaining edgy, fedora-tier trainwreck.
Can't wait.

That'd be Mayoiga. Kiznaiver barely has any trainwreck vibes.
>>
>>139671708
The synopsis and the fact its Okada make me skeptical. I'm not expecting anything legitimately decent out of the series, but hey if its good it will be a pleasant surprise.
>>
what other stuff are you guys looking forward to this year? besides movies I'm stoked for Battery and Flip Floppers
>>
>>139672015

>>139671669
Kino's Journey officially moved to /tv/ after the hollywood movie came out.
>>
>>139671759
It will probably look good but be the usual Okada fluff. That said, Kokosake was decent.
>>
>>139672015
New Game!, Flip floppers, everything made by Kyoani.
>>
>>139672101
New Game has lovely character designs, and it's by the guy who did Mikakunin, right? I like his work
>>
It's FlipFlappers or are you guys making fun of the fact that it will inevitably flop?
>>
>>139672015
3gatsu, 91 Days, Amanchu, Battery, Cheer Danshi, Flip Flappers, Fune wo Amu, Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku, Mahoutsukai no Yome, New Game, Orange, Yuri on Ice, some movies, anything by KyoAni.
>>
>>139672198
no I honestly make that mistake all the time, I keep forgetting the title because it's so silly
>>
>>139672246
are you a fujo or you have ulterior motives for watching Cheer Boys?
>Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku
god Madoka what the hell have you done to the genre, this sounds outrageous
>>
>>139672015
More Kizu and 3gatsu. I wonder what Shinbo's storyboards and overall direction will be now that he should actually be creating content.

Also interested to see how Yamada will handle Koe no Katachi.

Haikyuu S3 should be pretty awesome. I.G. have done a stellar job with it so far.

Other than that, Amanchu, Flip Flappers, Mahoutsukai no Yome, and New Game off the top of my head.
>>
>>139672408
Crazy to see Shinbo back in action after, what, 12 years?
>>
>>139672466
>>139672408
Doesn't he supposedly still storyboard a few episodes of Shaft shows under pseudonyms? There are a few names that don't match to anyone.
>>
>>139672586
>under pseudonyms
This is news to me. He's done storyboards there but still, I believe it's been quite some time since he was last officially credited.
>>
>>139671308
>as was whoever did Uchouten Kazoku
Masayuki Yoshihara. And yeah, he belongs to PA Works. Hopefully we'll see a new show from him soon, he hasn't done much since.
>>
>this thread
fedora intensifies
>>
>>139673923
He's wasted at PA Works
>>
>>139674181
Why?
>>
>>139674340
Because he's better than all of them.
>>
>>139674618
In what sense? You didn't like Uchouten Kazoku?
>>
>>139674653
I liked it. His style just doesn't fit with the studio though, and he's probably doomed for flops there.
>>
What was /a/'s opinions on Ping Pong's visuals?

I thought it was very strange and I want to say bad, but I kind of liked it.
>>
>>139674762
Most studios don't really have a house style though, and it seems like they let him do his thing just fine. You say doomed for flops, but is that because of the studio? Or the show? I feel like that kinda thing wouldn't sell too highly anywhere. Not that I know how well it sold, I'm just assuming it didn't based on how you're talking. PA Works seems like one of the places that actually can push units, and they've been experimenting with Kickstarter lately. Trying out new methods of financial gain is a good thing, I think.

>>139674884
I think it's a beautiful show. I watched it pretty used to that kinda art though, so I can understand how it'd be off putting for some. Check out some of Yuasa's other works if you haven't, cause they're all pretty fucking cool looking too.

Mayoiga, after having already been completed (I'm pretty sure) was "kickstarted" as a sort of alternative to buying the BDs. That was the impression I got, at least. Most of my knowledge is second hand so I don't know too much about it, but it's the first time that kinda thing has been done that I can think of.
>>
>>139676328
Mayoiga isn't by PA Works.

Unconventional artstyle. But Yuasa literally just adapted the manga's style into the anime.
But it looked amazing, very good visual storytelling.
>>
>>139663574
isn't usual? Ufotable did a lot of these things in their fate adaptation.

>>139676433
lol oops, I coulda sworn I'd heard it from someone but I probably just associated Mizushima with them, thanks for the correction

Strong conceptually, but pretty rough. Yuasa made it work, but you can tell the production was rushed as hell.

Do you have examples? I never really noticed any production fuckups.
