Can we all at least agree that this man is the greatest director of the last decade?
I like Imaishi and all, I've enjoyed his work since Trava Fist Planet and Dead Leaves, but Yuasa is far superior.
Yeah the whole Ryuko believing herself to be a monster was great writing and directing. And then her switching to Disco MILF's side, how could I forget?
The overall flow and storyline for TTGL is better than KLK. Both series had a bit of a dip after the first climax, but I feel it was handled better in TTGL. KLK's dip was spastic and made Ryuko more of a plot device than a character. The build up to the finale in TTGL had arguably more character development and introspection, whereas with KLK it was again, rather spastic. There were opportunities to develop the Elite 4 and Imaishi wasted them. A lot of characters ended up being kind of flat, even though there was potential for development.
However you can tell Imaishi learned a thing or two for visual direction through TTGL, and you can see it in Redline and KLK. I feel like without Dead Leaves and TTGL, Redline would've not been nearly as visually impressive.
Did anyone put so much faith in him that he had an unlimited budget for a project? He didn't then he's not the best director of the last decade.
Wow, a commercially successful director, Yamada must be the guiding light of our era.
Really, though, I'm tired as fuck of people circlejerking over Yamada like she's actually notable.
I probably should have said noteworthy, honestly. She's notable in the sense that she's obviously well-known, but she doesn't deserve to be based on her ability or the level of her accomplishments.
>greatest director of the last decade?
Ishihara, Shinbo, Yuasa are three off the top of my head who have done better this past 10 years.
PS&G was the last, technically good series to come from Imaishi - KLK was nothing special design wise.
Infact, the best thing to come out of Trigger, LWA, isn't even directed by him
Is Shinya Kawatsura notable? Because Non Non Biyori is the pinnacle of anime.
>TTGL has, even if a little, influenced almost every other anime that came out after it and popular culture in general
>Somehow he isn't a great director becuase the contrarian hivemind
K-On is fine fun but nothing incredible, Tamako's bad with a good movie, and Hibike was overblown melodrama. And neither aping physical cameras nor adding minor details to body language have an impact anywhere near proportional to the "genius" her worshippers insist on ascribing to them.
>TTGL has, even if a little, influenced almost every other anime
Do people seriously believe this. TTGL is a giant parody ffs, anything you can point to and say "TTGL influenced this" you could just as easily go farther back and find the older SR anime that TTGL lifted it from.
My favourite director in general is Naoko Yamada, but otherwise contemporary favourites would be like:
actually I'm stopping because there are too many good ones
>Imaishi said he wants to be like Kyoani
>Yamada works at Kyoani
>Imaishi wants to be Yamada
Looks like Yamada wins this one
>Implying a fucking SoL is harder to direct and animate than an anime that is all about movement
>Le /v/ boogeyman when you can't refute argument
A special kind of retard I see.
KyoAnifags, what are your KyoAni director power rankings?
If TTGL lifts something from mazinger or getter robo it doesn't mean any anime that use those same elements after TTGL were influenced by it. Rather all of them were just influenced by the originals especially considering that a director is probably much more versed in older anime than a typical western fan.
What evidence of influence in post 2007 anime can you point to that undeniably comes from TTGL?
>Talk about SoL like Euphonium, K-ON etc.
>He talks about a COMEDY/PARODY SoL with over the top scenes
Like Nichijou is literally the only example you could make to somehow confutate your retarded point.
Tell me about what's harder to animate and direct between K-On and TTGL
"In anime and manga, "slice of life" is a genre that often parallels drama in the use of slice-of-life narrative techniques. Themes can range from teen melodrama and interpersonal relationships"
Sounds like Euphonium which is by the way described as a SoL by every anime site but I guess somehow it isn't one because memes, again.
Hibike Euphonium was the most well-animated anime of 2015.
KLK could have been great but then he decided to be "hilarious" and make most of the fight scenes be slidey animation, like where the characters arm just swings up and down like in some South Park Canadian bullshit. I swear, Amemiya Akira must be some psychic parasite latching onto his brain or something because he had absolutely no problem with this shit in TTGL.
I thought this shit died a dog's death after a week of unsuccessful forcing.
Probably the Trigger interview where whoever their rep was said "they" (I don't know who that meant) didn't watch much anime at the moment because it wasn't very good, and preferred Western cartoons.
>liking the literal growing tumor of the anime industry
This is why I don't like anime anymore
This is why watching seasonal anime is suffering, you autists support this moe garbage.
Why? Is it because stupid moeblobs are all you have in your life?
People like you are what are holding back anime that are actually good but are overshadowed by fap blockbusters like K-On.
>taking the picture this seriously
I think it's time you join your moe-loving brethren
Kizu certainly looks like it'll be awesome. All the best implementations of digital effects I can think of come from movies. I'm sure Madoka was pretty good too but frankly I can't remember much of that show besides "witch caves looked neat."
There are threads for them constantly on /c/ and /e/, and I'll bet there is a lot of hentai of it out there.
It was made to cater to neets and weebs, just like all the anime made in the last 6 years.
It was actually made to cater to family audiences, and the porn stems solely from the fact that it was really popular. There are stats out there that prove K-On! had one of the widest demographics out there, and plenty of interviews with the staff where they describe their intent.
But he hasn't even directed anything good. Anyone can make a "hype" anime by adding in explosions and some overrated composer.
Just look at fucking Symphogear. The writing is terrible at all levels but its just so damn fun to watch. Just like TTGL and KLK.
If anything, you can say he's mastered the art of making complete trainwrecks.
He's definitely cool, even the stuff I didn't like I can appreciate some of the visual aspects. I had an anon highly recommend Tsuritama to me the other day, I plan on watching that soon.
An anime about Kanye West-kun teaming up with a magical cowtits redcoat to save a moeblob's comically bad theme park with the help of an angry, divorced Bonta-kun and his apathetic alcoholic asshole anthropomorphic animal associates, each more perverted than the last, with a quartet of half-naked girls who are just kind of there, just isn't going to land with everyone.
I for one loved it.
Literally everything Yamada has touched is a masterpiece.
>I know what you are but what am I?
You, you fucking idiot
4chan really needs to crack down on underage users these days
And wait, before you say it, "lol wut, r u talking about yourself hehe"
>samefagging this hard
We were literally just at 31 posters before you posted this.
You're trying so hard it's not even funny, there's no way that this is some sort of super ironic elaborate bait, you are genuinely autistic.
>questioning weather or not TTGL is good or not
This is jokes, right?
He's remains posting /v/ images !
Nobody posts 4 in a row with basically the same attitude and points like that.
This is possibly the most obvious samefag I've seen in all my years. You might as well post on a board with IDs and talk with yourself in your own thread consisting of one poster.
Never mind, make that 5.
This is an autistic like no other.
This is beyond damage control, if you're trying to be ironic by nearly doubling the number of times you've samefagged to make it seem like you were only pretending to be retarded.
Stop wasting my time, you buttblasted faggot.
Also, the poster count didn't increase at all this entire time.
You're not funny, nobody in this thread wants you here, kill yourself mang.
you got me, as expected of a master detective
>being this angry
Face facts. Your favorite anime is SHIT.
Perhaps you aren't aware, but there are multiple people who have posted in this thread before. This may seem farfetched, but what if, just speaking hypothetically here, more than one of those people replied to you?
>If you haven't played Dark Souls, you haven't lived.
m8 I fucking played Demon's Souls
Go back to >>>/v/
>non non byori
Fuck off faggot.
Go back to >>/v/
Seeing renge and deciding it's moeblob shit is reddit tier retarded.
No mention of Mamoru Hosoda
his movies are all consistently good
