Yeah I'm sure they had an offer to adapt SaO and they said no. They have a small publishing business. No highly ranked author would go to them for publishing. That's why them going back to adaoting other companies IPs can be great. I mean KnK has the best source material of any anime this decade.
Shitty sequels and recap movies.
You're exaggerating a bit there man. KnK was a very sexy looking anime, but story wise it's generic "gotta catch 'em youkai" fare with Kyoani TM Humour and good characters on the sidelines.
Kyoani would botch it spectacularly. Shaft is literally the only show that makes good harem anime.
I'm pretty hyped too bro, but Kanata was a solid show with a 10/10 op.
>otaku club harem animes
Not my cup of tea, so I never wtached it. Stockings look good though.
Nisekoi was never a good manga or story. The anime's pretty good though, because Shaft's art and casting was on point.
They have not made any work which covers a serious topic without the need to whitewash the bad things encountered in real life.
>Also the manga was better than the anime all the time
Come on. The anime had
>great architecture grads working in the shaft sweatshop
>cute girls with top quality voice acting
>enough going on onscreen to make you forget you were watching a shitty harem anime
While the manga just had cute girls, some well drawn panels and the same cliched plot. They don't even come close
Japanese whiplash is getting pretty serious already.
Will they ever go full Satoshi Kon though? Will they ever make animu that is both painful (in a grief kind of sense, not just some stupid chuuni shaming) and a pleasure to watch?
Meanwhile at Shaft
Monogatari final season
March comes like a Lion
Fate/Extra - Last Encore
That lineup is in a differnt league
Tales of Zestiria the X
Fate/stay night: Heaven's Feel
Garo: Divine Flame
In This Corner of the World
Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul
Yuri on Ice
I mean not everything has to "oh god everythign is dying" like this or Grave of the fireflies to be serious.
Look at Kon's work he never tackled enormous problems but his works are some of the most meaningful and serious anime out there.
>fate shit, harems and battle harems
>on the same level as the dreams of young men and women and katawa shoujo the movie
Kill la Kill, LWA2, Inferno Cop and Ninja Slayer were all great animes. Stylistically, Kiznaivers and KlK are on par with Kyoani and they actual put effort into their backgrounds instead of just filtering.
>Find a flaw.
KyoAni does not have a single decxent story writer in the staff. And KyoAni would admit it too. They are a studio filled with engineers and artists, but no story tellers.
Nice. Also KlK looked like ass after ep5 anon. And Kaziniver isn't looking that hot anymore.
>Inferno Cop and Ninja Slayer were great
Keep on throwing that b8 anon.
>Kill la Kill, LWA2, Inferno Cop and Ninja Slayer were all great animes
Also how are Kiznaiver's backgrounds any special?
Amagi was below Kyoani standards but that's not really a flaw I guess.
But I really can't, They just do everything perfectly.
Inferno Cop was just a prototype, but Ninja Slayer was a legitimately great anime that made you laugh out loud while simultaneously getting hyped as fuck. If you didn't get excited in any of the serious episodes, then anime isn't for you.
And you know what I'm talking about when I mention the backgrounds. Sure Hibike looked beautiful, but it's cheap and below a Kyoani to just use filters on photographs.
True otakus love yaoi, as long as it's either cute or manly.
Free is both.
They don't have a cool varied selection of shows like pic related.
Will Kyoani ever top this?
They can, but in KyoAni's case that rarely happens. For example, Ruru was shit and Kurumi was pointless. Sanae was really bad and Kumin was also pointless. Right now their only decent anime-original character that comes to mind is Touka.
>Ruru was shit and Kurumi was pointless.
But they were the two cutest and best characters in Myriad Colors Phantom World.
>But they were the two cutest
See this is Kyoani fags everyone, as long as its cute they don't care at all how poorly written or how unnecessary a character is.
This is how they are able to stomach so many garbage shows after Hyouka.
>I watch mature shows for mature people such as myself
You probably don't realize how masterful KyoAni is at subtle storytelling either.
I wonder if they're going to adapt the rest of their LNs, or pick some random manga/novel instead for next year.
Not animating this sequence
I wouldn't necessarily classify it as a school battle harem either, since the girls only said in the penultimate episode that they considered the male MC kinda nice when asked by the phantom-mommy if any of them would consider marrying him.
But technically, it does have all the elements that would classify it as a school battle harem.
It's set in a school (school), there is a large cast of girls surrounding a main character (harem), they all have special abilities somehow useful for combat (battle).
Name one good IG original. IG has some great animatirs but their shows suck major dick.
Sunrise's biggest show is a mobage adapation with CGI scenes. That's enough said about that garbage studio.
>Monogatari final season
>March comes like a Lion
>Fate/Extra - Last Encore
>Tales of Zestiria the X
>Fate/stay night: Heaven's Feel
>Can't imagine the cancerous fanbases war
That's seriously horrible for /a/. I think I'll avoid all /a/ threads that year and work totally on my backlog.
How would a non-hetshitter say that a show had their female characters exhibit intimacy one could conceivably consider homosexual while the characters themselves are at best bi or expressly heterosexual?
The movie didn't use any particular anime technique. Simply being a live action movie would've scored a better director because even if you don't like it Japan live action directors are better thantheir anime ones.
But I liked Both Free and Phantom World. Amagi just didn't offer anything apart from cute girls.
>Kyoani ever topping Hyouka.
I don't see it happening, Eupho is like 2nd/3rd for me, Nichijou is just too damn good as well.
Well if your yuri goggle is really that strong, sure, feel free to consider it /u/ then.
That mostly just means we'll get none of the serious Kumiko/Reina yuribait that Yamada came up with (but maybe we'll get more comedic Natsuki/Yuuko yuribait since that's what Ishihara likes). Other than that S2 should be as good as the first
Well the guy said decent and PP was alright for the first season i guess. Ghost hound was decent too.
>because even if you don't like it Japan live action directors are better thantheir anime ones.
>sees fucking terrible Assassination School live action film
Great Japanese live action directors aren't as common as I'd hope to think. At least, not by the definition I have for "great".
At least I know Production IG has great directors.
>muh everything with no cute girls cast is shitty deep garbage
Widen your range you tasteless faggot. I bet you legit only watch Kyoani anime.
Madhouse have more gems bruh and don't shill in garbage anime original characters for the sake of being cute.
Also their shows have much better soundtracks than anything from kyoansihit
Studio's who aren't even putting that many shows a year don't fucking deserve daily threads, fuck off .
They aren't even doing shit this season so this whole thread is mere shitposting central.
It's my favorite anime but who are you deluding?
It's NEVER gonna happen.
It just prove how good are they and how much influence their shows have. You might have a point though, sometimes, this kind of threads are shit
Since hiroyuki and all of /a/ seems to agree that Kyoani is the best studio, who would you say is second best?
They didn't make full use of animation. Stuff like Kizu with the senseless compositions or Kon's absurdist shots make full use of anime. Giovanni didn't do anything particular and could've easily been a good live action movie.
I think that GodAni studio is better than KyoAni. After all, it does get praised here in this KyoAni thread.
Haven't found anything on wikipedia about this GodAni studio, though. They must be fucking obscure.
Man even the chinese autists talk about the same shit as us
>Beijing Arnie finished, really ......
Kyoani? More like Flopani.
Can't wait to see how much they fuck up that manga adaption trying to fit it in a 2 hour movie and then sell like shit.
Not only that, TV anime global average still has them on top.
What I love about Kyoani is that all of their characters are well rounded, both in animation and personality. Not once did I feel like a Kyoani character was flat, including the background characters. No other studio comes close to Kyoani in that regard.
Not to mention they got the best team of directors a studio could ask for.
Even fucking DEEN are putting out better shit than them lately.
Pretty surprising they are still beating ufotable considering all they do is churn out fateshit these days. And shaft is only 5th despite having monogatari and madoka two of the biggest hits ever.
Both of those studios would be eating out of the garbage without aniplex
>he says while posting a Kyoani girl
Kyoani wins again!
Why? They pretty much already proved themselves to be SoL kings with Hidamari. Even Koufuku was good just plagued by a bit of Okada but nevertheless a good series.
The staff is amazing as well. And if Shinbou isnt playing Chief Director and actually directing it, its basically the anime of the year.
Their output per year is much lower than other studios of similar or smaller size, and the quality of their shows is much higher than any of their contemporaries. If you are judging artistic value on rate of production which it looks like you are by using the term "mass produce", then Kyoani is straight kino while other studios are making cheap factory line garbage.
I think Hiroyuki ought to put something similar like the /r9k/ bot on /a/ so that the shitposters have to come up with something new and original instead of those same old same tired bait and threads, and some old replies and copypasta.
Kyoukai no Kanata
Chuu2 first season
These are all just off the top of my head, they all have at least either a great OP or ED, most of them have both. I think you just have horrible taste.
It truly is THE anime studio.
Phantom World was a mistake, though.
>god tier OPs
>god tier EDs
Kyoukai no Kanata
>shit tier OPs
Kyoukai no Kanata
>shit tier OPs+EDs
Everything by SHAFT after Bake is cookie-cutter. They don't give a shit about their shows' integrity so they fuck them in the ass and shoehorn their stupid signature UNCANNY and ARTSY direction style onto everything they produced. I can't respect a studio that disregards their source's spirit like that.
If you'd read the image, you'd see that they define success as "sold more than 3k", which is fair, and way lower standards than the usual shitposter that claims Amagi and Hibike flopped when they sold more than 6k and 7k.
Those Aniplex IPs are better than KyoAni's recent originals, though Hibikek was actually a decent one but that is not even theirs originally. I doubt Koe no Katachi will make any difference.
If KyoAni was American it would be as big as Pixar or Disney by now.
It means those studios' success can't be measured from those shows because they are just hired to animate the thing. If they're not in the committee, the sales from those shows don't make them richer. Guess what studio has been leading their own shows' committees for the last 4 years.
>Guess what studio has been leading their own shows' committees for the last 4 years.
G O D A N I
No, anon. I owned some Kyoani goods too, but I'm not deluding and force myself to like garbage put out by Kyoani recently. Hibiki is the only thing I hold high from all of their works after Hyouka.
Pretty sure Jin wrote the story for the manga and LN too but who keeps track of that? Certainly not ignorant shatfags
Long story short, shaft working with the original creator can and have turned into terrible shows.
>Haruhi: Moe youso
>Lucky Star: Every other fucking line from Konata
>K-On: Moe moe kyun
>Nichijou: Pic related
KyoAni shows are known as moeshit for good reason.
They're implying that nobody knows about it because the anime was shit, but a series doesn't need to have an anime for people to know about it. There was plenty of talk about mahouka on /a/ before the anime, but nothing for kagerou daze despite kagerou daze being more popular than mahouka.
The only good post in this thread.
KyoAni's animation is so good that sometimes it even makes me forget that it's animation and how difficult it actually is to animate. That cut of Haru drawing the summon circle with his finger is just so fluid, and the perspective is perfect, it's almost hard to believe.
They should put more foreshadowing in their OPs, if you catch my drift.
Also I've recently watched Free, it's not as gay as it looks.
Why does KyoAni like rotating their characters in their OPs so much?
To give the illusion that they're real 3D people.
>I'll never understand why this series was never popular outside of japan. There is nothing about it that would lend to it being an exclusively japanese taste.
The series did a bad job in being inclusive to new viewers towards the IP. Hell, even I felt cold towards it in the end
I honestly liked the fights in KnK TV, the choreography wasn't so flashy but it still had very good animation and some stylish movements. The action isn't the main thing in KnK anyway. People see them as dull because it didn't have as many cuts and sword smashing, but it was pretty effective for what it was.
Mirai is the only one with a sword though. The others' powers are very varied.
>watch Phantom World
Yeah, I'd rather not doing that again.
The problem with KyoAni fights and most anime fights for that matter is that they use too many cuts and usually stick to very simple compositions. But pretty much everyone but old Madhouse and Bones is guilty of this, though. So I guess it's more of an issue of new animators not being experienced enough with fight scenes at all.
I like my fights fluid and with as less cuts as possible.
It's not that Aniplex is bad, it's that people act like those studios are good for having those titles when the truth is that they aren't theirs, it's Aniplex's stuff. Like idiots who act like SHAFT is rich because Monogatari and Madoka sell well but in reality that money goes to Aniplex and not Shaft. It's especially frustrating when people use those shows as an argument against KyoAni because KyoAni is the one that is actually leading their shows' committees and getting the money because they are the biggest investors. And it's even worse when they act like those studios are taking risks by adapting Aniplex's shows but they don't put anything at stake.
