There isn't really a debate.
Left has the better source material
Left has the mainstream appeal
Left has the better creative team behind it
It's also a tv series so it doesn't take until 2017 to see it for /a/.
>more cute than this
Don't kid yourself, Umino character designs all look like they have the downs, not to mension the sameface is even harder than KyoAni's.
SHAFT has nothing on KyoAni cuteness.
>Left is threads with heavy shitposting
>Right is threads with heavy shitposting
It's a draw.

>Left has the better source material

>Genetic SoL has more mainstream appeal than a story about disability and bullying, especially in the era of tumblr
You're dumb as shit
>Having anything to do with Japan
You're dumb as shit.
'Genetic' SoLs have more mainstream appeal than bullying in Japan. If anything the Japanese fucking hate disabilities and try to push bullying under the rug.
Studios doesn't give a shit about any audience outside of Japan. Since you are new and only saw this in an epic feels thread on a shit board I forgive you for saying this and won't accuse you of moving the goalposts.
Forgive my cock for going up your ass Shaftfaggot.
Now it's not the time for arguing, that comes later when your new shitty SoL flops like shit and your retarded opinions screencaps will flow the threads.
>Can't refute my point
Nice job. 3lion has a mainstream appeal in Japan.
I don't know why you'd even think anyone was talking about the west, because no one gives a fuck about the west in nipland aside from maybe Trigger.
The few anime shows that have gotten day slots in NHK have flopped both in rating and BD sales. The average Japanese normalfag doesn't care about anime. 3gatsu won't be any diferent
You do realize more people watch TV than go to the movies, right? You can't possibly be this retarded.
But nice job trying to redirect the fact that 3gatsu shits on Koe no Katachi in sales though.
Drop the damage control pls, you literally have no idea how the industry works and what could be a success or not, I have enough screencaps already you can fuck off already mongo.
>You're dumb as shit
Congratulations. You have won the debate. I present to you this gif clapping hands.
>Adaptation of a manga about down syndrome faced characters playing shogi has more mainstream appeal than KnK
I hope you're all trolling because otherwise you need a good doctor to check on your brain damage.
>you literally have no idea how the industry works and what could be a success or not
Says the 'mongoloid' who can only ad hominem. Keep those screencaps close so you can cry yourself to sleep at night when 3gatsu inevitably does better than Koe no Katachi.
Well, Umino manga has always have pretty big normalfag appeal in Japan. I still think this will flop, shows like these work better as live action. The average person might like the manga but I doubt the anime will appeal to mainstream audience.
That it does, KnK has also been over for 2~ years, just clarifying because you give the impression that you don't know that.
I don't think you're very familiar with Japan and anime. The only real mainstream anime is shit like One Piece, Dragon Ball, Shin-Chan, Yokai Watch, Detective Conan, see a pattern? Drama series like 3-gatsu is better received in Live Action format, not anime.
>More anons saying left than right
Read Katachi's one-shot when it was first released, thought it was in line with key's usual output in terms of emotional artificiality and came away feeling unimpressed, not really understanding the fuss. I heard that the serialization ended up being better but I'm still not interested in reading on. On the other hand Sangatsu is great but it's been a while since I caught up on it, started getting good just as I put it on hold too.
Either way it's pointless to pit both series against the other, they're not even remotely similar.
Shogi is a boring game, it is going to flop. /a/ will also scream NTR when that girl leave her family to fuck his rival and the MC for soundly thrashed bi him too.
Right have a good one shot but terrible progression during serialization. I have high hope for it since it is kyoani. They will fix the flaws.
SHAFT is pretty irrelevant here. Aside from the yearly Monogatari season we barely even get as many threads as with KyoAni. The only reason why anyone is even hyping 3-gatsu is because it airs at the same season as KnK movie. I never saw a single thread about the manga itself before the anime was announced, but KnK was huge here regardless.
>the girl may be mute but you seem to be blind
>>shaft is better than Kyoani.
Maybe old Shaft, but current shaft tries to shoehorn everything to be like the gatari series.
>Madhouse and Sunrise are leagues above both of them
>judging something that you'be never read
I knew you were a faggot anon but holy shit
A seinen? So you only read manga aimed at babbies like yourself?
>Author who writes series for women and has always wrote series for women
>Somehow where the manga is actually published matters
>The manga has the same shoujo style has her other works
Just accept your faggotry already and FUCK OFF, fucking whiny queer.
Go back to your hugbox on tumblr.
You're a special kind of autist I see. Just because the mangaka has other shoujo work doesn't mean all of her work is shoujo. It's demographic is officially seinen. Also the magazine that it's published in is important to the target audience if you knew anything about manga. Please kill yourself for the all of mankind.
>had their entire argument refuted
>calls others in denial
>He doesn't like cute little boys
What a faggot
-maybe, probably. not really fair to say since knk is finished while sangatsu is not.
-right has the better mainstream appeal
knk has more potential because of it's drama and premise.
sangatsu on the other hand might be a really slow and steady show.
>-right has the better mainstream appeal
There isn't even anything to discuss about it looking how March comes in like a lion gets the full anime of the year treatment by everyone.
While KnK is just one of the more higher profile anime movies.
Even In This Corner of the World by Mappa is way above KnK in that regard.
Why can't we like both? I read 3gatsu and liked it much. Meanwhile KnK can greatly benefit from Kyoani's skilled hand.
KnK was relatively successful for a manga made by a rookie author, it won a bunch of awards, including the Tezuka New Creator Prize, but 3-Gatsu is still more popular, sold and is still selling more than KnK and is made by a veteran author that pretty much everyone in the industry likes to circlejerk over.
The choice to make 3-gatsu an anime instead of a live action drama was a weird one, I have my doubts on whether it will well received by a mainstream audience or not.
I also find it weird that Shochiku decided to screen it on 150 theathers, seems overkill to me. KnK ended 2 years ago, so all the hype it had is probably gone for the most part, KyoAni seems to be funding most of the project.
Isn't NHK public television? Why are you people bragging about it anyway? If public TV stations in Japan are similar to the west then they probably just air garbage all day long.
Call me when it airs in Japan's HBO equivalent or something like that.
Where were you when SHAFT butchered adaption designs while KyoAni adapted them perfectly, all the while shitposters were saying that exactly the opposite would happen?
Shaftfags think it's a big deal because they believe it's a sign the studio is getting more mainstream.
Meanwhile normalfags in Japan like our hiroyuki have no idea who shaft is but recognize KyoAni is a great studio.
In my country prime time slots for public TV stations are filled with Telenovelas and Big Brother-type shows, so from my point of view yes it is bad, easy to digest garbage for the proletariat. Japan might be diferent but I really doubt it. What is currently airing in 3-gatsu's slot?
Then prove to me that Japan's public stations are different, what exactly is airing during prime time in NHK? Do you really believe an anime with SHAFT's wacky visual style and direction would be even watchable by your average salaryman and housewife?
>Only /a/ cares about Kyoani to the point where they will shitpost about them to a degree that makes average seasonal bullshit look like a formal diplomatic meeting.
This thread is basically the result of some shitposter being cheesed there's no actual Kyoani and Shaft show airing this season and thank Christ for that, the threads are already bad enough as it is already.
I feel like these days I come here mainly just to laugh at all the constant unending shitposting. Goddamn is /a/ really fucking stupid. Somebody is probably going to tell me to fuck off but I don't care.
I don't think it's possible to make that character design not look incredibly stupid. What is it with pretentious drama looking shows and MC's pretty much always looking like that anyway? You know shaggy hair, oversized glasses, sullen "welcome to my life" look that is supposed to appeal to the kind of anti-social shut in otaku that makes up most of the current anime fanbase in Japan. I guess I answered my own question, but goddamn does this guy look like he's going to be one of those whiny bitch who hates the world for his sole personality trait characters that gets to indulge in some sort of power fantasy but whines about it all the same anyway.
You mean like TV dramas with the highest ratings in Japanese television?
3lion gets treated like one of them instead being stuck in the anime ghetto of the late-time NHK-E channel.
I don't think you can even compare them. Firstly, Sangatsu will be a series while KnK is a movie. That's just too much of a difference considering the studios.
If anything I'd like to see how will KnK fare against that next Shinkai's movie.
You know what? I have to congratulate you guys. I didn't expect that post to have reasonable replies. Not in this board, and especially not in this thread, with these fanbases. I'm actually amazed.
4chan is a website located in america, isn't? Then where is democracy value? I have the right to say that your beloved studio is shit. You can't force your opinion down my throat and make me say "e-everyone loves kyoani!"
I love how you keep replying me in hopes that what you says become true. But the irony is me and half of this thread is denying you in saying that they're are our favourite studio.
I'm sorry that people like us exist but that's the world works, kid. Your sounding like a broken record aren't going to solve anything.
You and i both know
it hurts you more.
Yes, yes anon. Keep telling yourself that sweet lies, you pathological liar. The next morning you'll find out i never did existed. Me and about half of /a/ are just an illusion and this thread had never happened. You are right. You're always right.
