What happened to the animators that made moments like this in Dragonball?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XebyKpo6A9s

Why aren't they working on Super? Are they dead? Retired?
>>
That's from 90's without digital works, it's all about digital now.
>>
Toei's problem isn't the animators (that's just a minor problem, but not THE one). Toei's problem is that they almost routinely mess up their work schedule. Then everybody is in a rush to meet deadlines, steps are skipped, drawings are half-assed and QC is pointless because there's no time to fix things anyway.
Toei is basically a worthless company nowadays.
>>
DBZ was a borderline slide show for the most part, so they could blow out the budget on bigger moments. Aka, like every manga adaptation ever.

Super is lazy cash grab shit that fans like you will eat up and complain about.
>>
>>143571974
Restricted by yammamuro's crappy designs and time/budget constraints. Or retired.
>>
You're asking a guy who hasn't touched his own work in 15-20 years.

Toriyama needed money and shilling a series to make you underages happy was the quickest way to get it. Any ration DBZ fan would've ben satisfied for what we got in the 90s.

Nostalgia much? You can find the same shit in every shounen anime

No one at Toei fucking cares about Dragonball, get that through your head. It makes money even if it's shitty and wouldn't make much more if it wasn't shitty, so they half-ass it.

Out of all scenes, why did you use this one?

There's barely any actual animation in this.

Also I never really noticed it, but he literally just screams, they zoom out and then his hair is SS2. There's no actual transformation instead we watch a minute of this stupid ass bird?

Who thought this was a good idea?

>>143572468

Faulconer's music gets ripped to shreds for using too much synth but damn the Japanese score uses it too and it sounds even worse. I'd argue the piano and electric guitar in the Faulconer song sounds better than the cheesy 80s song used in the Japanese score.

Are you saying the second song, that sounds like a bad BGM from some old SNES game, is in any way better than Unmei no Hi?

Are you just being contrarian for the sake of it, or do you really have this much of a shit taste?

I've watched the entire series dubbed and subbed, and I still can't decide which one I like better beyond really liking both. It's like, the japanese has that nostalgic 90s feel, but the Dub is just as fucking good.

what sucks most about it is the super manga is even more shit than the anime despite having superb art quality that perfectly captures what dragonball should look like while still being modern. (super can just look ugly at times thanks to them half-assing everything)

you wish SNES games sounded like that.

and yes, it sounds better than your faggot-ass choice. gohan is about to kick some ass, not pick flowers in india. song is ass except for main singer.

I really hope they don't fuck up FT in super. tomorrow we'll see more.

I guess tomorrow's episode will go like this:

>black thinks he's stronger
>goku lets his ass get kicked a bit to see how strong black is
>"well, that's underwhelming"
>goes ssgb

Beautiful.

You know, at one point I had wished they would re-animate DBZ with current tech to vastly improve and modernize the animation.

Now, I'm wishing the exact opposite, that they would go back to the old method and ways of animation, which are painfully and obviously far superior in quality.
>>

Could look great if they wanted it to. The movies overall look good.

Would you prefer it if they created a black hole that kept expanding at light speed until the entire universe is gone?

I would prefer the environment to react to objects traveling faster than light.
>>
>>143579936

does it ever say they travel "faster than light"
>>
>>143579936
The problem with light speed is that it requires infinite energy. If you release that much energy into a place, you get a black hole of infinite size.

FTL is faster than light, and therefore requires MORE than infinite energy.

In short, you cannot depict the environment reacting to such speeds in a meaningful way.
>>
>>143580016
You could try, characters smear into themselves as they accelerate forward into darkness, they can be depicted as bubbles of space warping the scenery, leaving first nothing, then a black trail, then whats left of the scene as light start to flow over the places they were, at least try is all I'm saying.
>>
>>143580014
They didn't, but they are moving at relativistic speeds to cause the air to fuse like that.
>>
>>143580258
Sure you could do lots of interesting stuff depicting the effects of normal-fast battles.
But anything approaching light speed is bad news.
>>
>>143580304
And yet every story that supposedly has FTL characters has never once described/shown relativistic effects of any sort.
>>
>>143580341
Because FTL is beyond anything sensible.
For one thing, causality would fly out of the window. Either you handwave stuff with nonsense or you're not getting to FTL.
It's only at sub-light speed that trying to be realistic will get you anywhere.
>>
>>143580384
Just because its beyond normal human conceptualization does not mean it would be impossible to depict.
>>
>>143580480
>Just because its beyond normal human conceptualization does not mean it would be impossible to depict.
Let me rephrase that for you.
>Just because it's absolutely and completely impossible to get there doesn't mean there isn't a way to do it.

What's there to depict? It's like trying to depict somebody counting to aleph-0 twice, except with the added difficulty that for every new digit he reaches, his counting speed drops by 50%.
>>
>>143580600
You can't visualize light moving?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fSqFWcb4rE
>>
>>143580769
Sure you can. Everything's possible up until almost light-speed but here is the thing. While it's almost light-speed relative to the rest of the universe, to the traveler itself light is still moving past him at exactly the speed as before, so he still has to accelerate exactly as much as before, starting from 0.
And when he has thus accelerated twice to almost lightspeed, light is still moving past him like he's accomplished nothing at all.

And that is completely okay so long as you are satisfied with a sub-light speed story.

But you can't get from this realistic depiction of lightspeed to FTL. It's just impossible.
>>
>>143580847
Realistic, maybe not, artistic/imaginative/creative you can be, and create something that is visually appealing, that seems like a reasonable facsimile of what one might expect to "see".
>>
>>143580965
>what one might expect to "see"
Which is exactly what we've been shown by shows like TTGL. It just works. Don't think too hard about it.
>>
>>143581058
I have honestly never watched that, I've been meaning to but I just haven't got around to it yet.
>>
>>143581104
Since we're in a DBS thread, I'll point out that the worst depiction of lightspeed and the universe I've seen recently was in the DBS episode where they called the dragon.
That shit was just dumb.

sasuga autist-sama
>>
>>143581331
Even if it is made of light, the problem is that it's several thousand light years from one wing to the other.
In order for us to see it fully, the light from the one wing would need to be thousands of years older than from the other wing. So the dragon would need to be stationary for millennia.
(and that's just one out of many problems)

did it also upset you when in TTGL it was implied that Nia's ring was permanently entangled with Simon and thus they could use their Spiral Teleportation to go to the Anti-Spiral homeworld they found hiding in a pocket dimension in between the 10th and 11th dimension thus implying that string theory and the multiverse theory are real?

Or how about when the Anti-Spiral TTGL combined only 2 galaxies and somehow converted enough energy from that to rival the big bang?

Or how about when galaxies were able to be stood upon, thrown like discs, etc etc?
>>

I'm not actually upset. I was just pointing out that the explanation doesn't work.

DBZfags are fucking retarded and must all be children. The fact you guys bitch so much like as if it is surprising is amazing. Are you new to anime or something? The original DBZ had lots of QUALITY as well.
