The current decade is past 2010, so I can concede that Nichijou and Tamako are above Amagi in the KyoAni ranking. That still means Amagi is among their top series.

What are you talking about?

If you are talking about Kadokawa and such, those are employers hiring them for a job. They don't get to pick. If you are talking about in-house projects, they don't have many stories they CAN pick, they are literally working with what little they got.

I barely remember KnK because I hated every minute of what I watched, but I always assumed that I didn't like the action scenes because I couldn't give less of a fuck about the terrible characters.

Yuushibu aired in the same season with the same animation director, had a quarter of the budget or talent, but I was still more invested in those action scenes.

Kyoukai no Kanata had bad choreography. I'm impressed with how they improved in its OVA+movie, and Phantom World though.

Ok let me tell you this, KNK had a real shitty depth for characters that you barely cared for at that point like not knowing the actions of the characters and understanding the villains. It never explained how the mc got his immortality which was very important and was shrugged off as if it was barely anything. The point where it lost the mood of the show by trying to be humorous felt very dry for its setting especially involving the fetishes. Left too many plot holes and left the most powerful world building and setting aspect too unexplored. Trying to add moe aspects to that show really hurt the uniformity of the setting thus does not fit. And adding that bullshit with her coming back was like a real cop out especially with the aspect of her having amnesia.

Pretty sure the only thing that can kill Monogatari is Monogatari.

That is the Otaku magnum opus, they revere it like it's some kind of neckbeard holy book. NisiOisiN can release a giant steaming pile of shit and they will eat it and beg for more.

Monogatari fans are the Blizzard fans of anime.

Personally, I like the girls and the series is okay but I have never thought it was superior to other harems like many of it's fanbase claim it is. Although, they claim it isn't harem at all but some kind of superior transcendent echii series.

Hyouka is probably their best TV anime 2011-2016.

What are you talking about? There are characters with very different motivations and backgrounds in Hibike.
>Music? Neither of the series has a really remarkable OST.
That's subjective, what's not is the fact that Hibike has a great deal of attention put into the music, to the point that you can clearly tell which player is better just by listening to it or when the band is playing awfully.

>Art? Arguable, Amagi has better design, Hibike traced backgrounds behind a ton of overused AE filters.
No it's not, the instruments of Hibike are some of the best drawn instruments in any show.
And the talk about characters is preposterous, every single background character in Hibike has a unique design, even mob characters that don't have a single individual line in the whole show are instantly recognizable.
Tracing backgrounds behind filters is not a rare practice in the industry, what's important is the end result.
>Hibike fails to excel at anything.
Hibike excels at portraying teenager drama in the context of a band practicing to get far in competitions.
>>
>>141220425
>They are all cut by the same pattern.
Why do you mean by this?

>Arguable, Amagi has better design, Hibike traced backgrounds behind a ton of overused AE filters.
I agree somewhat on the latter points (not the tracing, almost all artists draw from referential material), but I really don't think the character designs are better in Amagi (they're really just more vibrant and cartoonish) and Hibike has far, far better color design.

They all failed to make me care about them. I prefer Amagi's vibrant characters and I actually could relate with them and their struggles.

>That's subjective, what's not is the fact that Hibike has a great deal of attention put into the music, to the point that you can clearly tell which player is better just by listening to it or when the band is playing awfully.
That's sounds design rather than OST, which was better in hibike (which is to be expected).

>No it's not, the instruments of Hibike are some of the best drawn instruments in any show.
>And the talk about characters is preposterous, every single background character in Hibike has a unique design, even mob characters that don't have a single individual line in the whole show are instantly recognizable.
Tracing backgrounds behind filters is not a rare practice in the industry, what's important is the end result.
Highly detailed instruments copied from reference and which always looked painfully detached from the characters fail to impress me.
I care more about making the important characters distinguishable than making 1000 different hairstyles for every single mob character, to be honest.
Also, the problem with tracing backgrounds is that they fail to create meaningful scenery to support the narrative, which should be the point of backgrounds and not just looking pretty.

Hibike fails to portray a real teenager at all.

Every artist draws from reference and Hibike has far and away the instrument animation of any show I've ever seen. They really don't even feel disconnected from the world, at least not any more so than real instruments do. Instruments do look rather strange.

That's subjective.
You can't really say that every character is the same just because you didn't like any of them.
>Highly detailed instruments copied from reference and which always looked painfully detached from the characters fail to impress me.
But they don't look painfully detached from characters.
And of course they're copied from reference if they want to draw realistic looking instruments, what kind of criticism is that? If they're uncapable of drawing instruments without looking at reference photos they're shit?
>I care more about making the important characters distinguishable

Can't argue with that. Nichijou was nice but it wasn't something that one gets invested in and it didn't sell well for several good reasons despite how pleasant the show was overall. ABP might have had high school as a thing, but it wasn't what defined the characters and it wasn't the main setting for the show; that alone made it so much better. Mascots were top tier and there were enough grown-ass adults to balance it all out. The characters struggled with both everyday and unique problems, there were no main/supporting characters that were simply one-shot garbage templates for a single episode, and were overall engaging. It wasn't perfect (shady businessman who just happens to be the ebul wizrd in disguise) but it was definitely something that had some care put into it.

The rest of KyoAni for the last decade is the same high school garbage with an M Night Shamalamadingdong twist, be it fighting or relationship trash.

>>141239020
Hibike is a good music drama that's structured like a sports anime with solid animation, art and directing. Hyouka is a masterpiece of the medium, and on a different level. There is absolutely a massive gap between the two.
>>
>>141239094
> Hyouka is a masterpiece of the medium

You've said absolutely nothing about it with that sentence.
>>
>>141239160
It excels in literally every area. Art, animation, music, directing, dialog, character development, etc. Every aspect of it is air tight, and it's one of the few shows that actually makes use of the visual medium to show you the story instead of just telling it, and even the parts that tell it are fantastic (to be fair, a lot is lost in translation since the author's writing is very "clever" in Japanese and it just doesn't translate as well into English). Hibike is a by the books sports team story, and despite some nice looking episodes, doesn't push the medium nearly as far as Hyouka. You're trying to compare a Cadillac to a Ferrari.

But hey, I can already tell from your comments that you're going to act like a passive aggressive faggot and start saying "Well I think that's kinda subjective since I don't really see what's so special in Hyouka and I really liked to pretend Hibike was a great yuri romance story, so I'll just say it's all a matter of subjective opinion."

No I'm not, not even close. The dialog between the two isn't even comparable. The detail in the art in Hyouka is on another level. The movie arc in Hyouka alone is better than anything Hibike tries. The entire thing is them picking apart a mystery movie and making commentary on the genre, while at the same time being in a mystery show that the commentary directly applies to. Things like the point about mysteries be inherently kind of scary because of the element of the unknown, despite no danger present in the story while the atmosphere shifts to that creepy house despite no danger ever being in the story are clever. Seriously, watch how that entire thing is put together from lighting, music and cinematography all the way down to the character interactions and monologues about what's going on. Nothing in Hibike even approaches it. Go watch the conversations Oreki has with Irisu and pay attention to how the visuals complement his state of mind, it's perfectly composed. Absolutely nothing in Hibike is on that level, it's really just a good sports drama, but instead of sports it's music.

You said nothing. Calling Hyouka a "masterpiece" doesn't say anything about what makes it a better work than Euphonium. He clearly doesn't think it is, elsewise he wouldn't make the comparison in the first place.
So with that post you made you contributed nothing to actual discussion while I was trying to get you to actually say something of substance. It's more contribution than you were doing up to that point, that's for sure.

It took you this many posts to actually say something of value, so you calling me retarded doesn't make you any less wrong.

No you can't, not at all. Hibike doesn't use nearly the same level of detail or nuance with the directing and has nothing approaching a meta commentary. You're just an idiot who like yuri bait high school drama, and now you're honestly pretending that "I like these characters" means that the show has all of the directing and composition elements I talked about.

>Hyouka has a boring cast, especially when compared to Hibike.

>Two people stated their opinions, but you're the one who I disagree with you can't say anything without substantiating it

Woah, it's like you can read my mind!

But I don't. I think Hyouka is better than Hibike. But you're obnoxious when you make vague statements with no value when you talk something up and call it a masterpiece.

And look at you getting assblasted because you and some other guy don't see things the same way. And with the way you're presumptuously putting words in his mouth and mine, you're also definitely more close minded than he is.
>>
>>141240636
>Hibike doesn't use nearly the same level of detail or nuance with the directing and has nothing approaching a meta commentary.
Can you provide any kind of examples or reasoning for this other than just stating it outright or explaining basic elements of the show?

>You're just an idiot who like yuri bait high school drama
And you're a pretentious pseudo-intellectual who likes trippy, surreal visuals and Oreki's totally cool and apathetic character archetype.

>means that the show has all of the directing and composition elements I talked about.
Anyways, to do a bit of actual substantive criticism to support my own argument, I believe it does. For example, take the episode 8 mountain walk. In it, we are clued into both characters stances toward the things they do in general (Reina going all out whereas Kumiko half-asses it) with the character outfits, the characters' stances toward each other (Kumiko follows Reina up the mountain), and even a slight suggestion of their ultimate ability (both end up at the same heights, and one could even suggest Kumiko's path is superior due to her managing to make it up without hurting herself).
At any rate, it's a fantastic scene that exhibits all of the elements of symbolic cinematography and I think it does it better than pretty much any scene in Hyouka, though I'm certainly willing to be convinced otherwise in that particular regard.

As to the characters, to compare the MC's alone, Kumiko is far more interesting and relatable. Her primary dilemma is far more reasonable and compelling, and it's brought to a far more conclusive and cathartic conclusion than Oreki's is. She's also just much more entertaining as a character, but that is admittedly far more subjective.

You're an idiot because you haven't actually made a single post of worth, and he's an idiot because after asking why Hyouka was good, he said "Wel that all applies to Hibike as well" when it absolutely 100% does not, and he just likes the high school girl drama.

Are you fucking retarded, or just pretending?

Ok, so definitely actually retarded.

Don't feel bad that you couldn't follow Hyouka, but don't pretend the basic high school drama was better because all you could see in Hyouka was "surreal and trippy visuals". This is by far the weakest "criticism" of the show that exists.

>At any rate, it's a fantastic scene that exhibits all of the elements of symbolic cinematography and I think it does it better than pretty much any scene in Hyouka
You have absolutely no grasp of what cinematography is, and I sincerely mean that.

>Kumiko is far more interesting and relatable
Sure, if you're a teenage girl whose level of interest in a character is based on self inserting. Please go ahead and continue pretending that the people who liked the characters in Hyouka all just wanted to self insert as a lazy smart guy.

No you fucking idiot, completely misusing terms and making statements that show an utter lack of understanding of the subject material (in this case, cinematography and directing) is not "trying to have a conversation". It's being a pretentious asshole because you think your subjective feelings towards the characters means you can talk about technical aspects of a show and just start inventing new definitions for words and saying asinine garbage like "That entire breakdown of the movie arc could be applied to Hibike as well" when what you're saying doesn't make a shred of sense. You like the pretend lesbians, you thought the mountain climbing scene looked pretty and it made your plus sized panties wet. Stop pretending you've said anything of worth, or that someone who actual knows what the words they use mean is the one spouting vague bullshit.

Let me reiterate again: you are blindingly ignorant and pretentious. Your ideas are worthless when you don't even understand the concepts you're so fervently arguing.

>>141241598
>What is wrong with my interpretation of the mountain climbing scene?
Because it has fucking nothing to do with cinematography or the kind of nuanced detail in directing and scene composition that we were talking about in Hyouka. On top of it, that was literally the one scene in Hibike that people reference when they want to talk about layered story telling whereas Hyouka was over 20 episodes of that non-stop and of better quality.
>>
>>141241533
As a side note, you are currently engaging in actual, regular adhominem. As to why your breakdown is bad, it's because it's completely generic. You basically just said that it's good and then summarized it.

Also, since when are things like characters positions in frame and in reference to one another not a part of directing or scene composition?

>As a side note, you are currently engaging in actual, regular adhominem
No I'm not, not at all. I swear to god if you try to say that ad hominem means "insulting someone and calling them names" I will find a way to leap through my monitor and strangle you.

>As to why your breakdown is bad, it's because it's completely generic. You basically just said that it's good and then summarized it.
No it's not, not at all. None of that is generic at all. Stop using words you don't understand.

>Also, since when are things like characters positions in frame and in reference to one another not a part of directing or scene composition?
>Two characters positions in reference to each other while they're climbing the (metaphorical) mountain
>This is better cinematography than Hyouka
Oh, I think I get it now. You can't actually pick up on anything that's not extremely obvious and basic. I can see how you'd find Hyouka boring. To answer your question, the relative positioning of two characters in one scene (and that position being one leading the other as both quite literally move uphill) in absolutely no way compares to what was going on in Hyouka.
>>
>>141242251
>You like the pretend lesbians, you thought the mountain climbing scene looked pretty and it made your plus sized panties wet.
This is regular ad hominem. You're implying the only reason I like the show is because I like yuri, and insulting me, and not actually tackling my points.

No it's not you fucking idiot. Ad hominem would be "You're wrong because you're a yurifag" not "You're an idiot for misusing these terms, you stupid yurifag." I guess we can ad another term to the list of things you don't understand.

>Alright, then break down a scene for me and tell me how and why that scene is so much better than the mountain top scene.
Already referenced a one in the thread and talked about an entire arc that blew Hyouka out of the water. Since we're talking about the overt ones, this blows the mountain scene out of the water by covering more emotions with better visuals cues and doing it in a fraction of the time. It actually encapsulates his entire thought processes through the excitement right down to the crushing blow of reality and it all happens in a few seconds. Let's see if you can pick up all the viusal cues, since you're apparently well versed in discussing cinematography.

Because the visual cues are more creative and varied, and they happen nonstop. You caught the pendulum, but missed the rosy pink outlook turning back into grey reality when his expectations were broken. So you've got one very straightforward scene in Hibike and I've got one very creative one in Hyouka that does just as much in less time with more flair. Now tell me what's happening in this scene, and then show me examples in Hibike of characterization done that gracefully.

>Oh I get, you're one of those idiots who who thinks everything needs to be like LNshit where they explain literally every detail of everyone's power and backstory. That's garbage story telling and you should feel bad.
This is the main character, he had very little development that was essential to his character and ties to the story with his connection to the supernatural especially. At least with proper pacing, you understand characters and their own ties the story as well as their development without the past being shrugged off. This was important to the plot itself as HIS OWN POWER AND LINK TO THE YOUMU AS WELL AS HIS GOALS.
>Literally 0, and the threads have been explaining to you idiots what happened since it aired.
You fucking idiot, the unexplained like how Mirai came back, or Akihiro's past that could have been explored, the villains ties to the story, Miroku and Izumi having Youmu inside of them which did not make sense especially Miroku trying kill everyone with Kyoukai no Kanata. This was bullshit. No development beforehand.
>Sure, if you weren't paying attention.
Oh I was paying attention alright, how did she survive? Why was she brought back with the power of memories and wishing that is complete horseshit, or the fact that her memories are gone for whatever reason just to add to the drama.
Also, I am not that anon who spoke about choreography as it is dance routine.
