So /a/, are SHAFT hacks or are they geniuses?
Let's face it, the jury's in one way or the other at this point.
>>
They are closer to hacks than geniuses
>>
Neither really, just like any a whole bunch other studios. At their best in the Team Shinbo era they made some of the most creative and entertaining anime the industry had to offer at their worst more recently they have just been making pale half assed attempts at imitating that which they had previously achieved.

"The image that I have on Shaft is the "student who isn't an honor-student, but very famous". Including Shinbo, all staff in Shaft aren't really a genius but still have an image of having some kind of genius-like talents, and also have some sense, so even though they didn't change a lot in "Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica", they are showing their image more distinctively than they did before."

Shaft, not genuises. Confirmed by Ume-sensei

She's just mad cause she had a crush on Mami-san

Can I vish Shaft Studios like how Kyoani have that shitty store at their studio?
>>
wait for march comes like a lion.

while kyoani is memeing with le deaf girl and music sol, SHAFT is creating a truly remarkable work.
>>
>>147271533

Is the PV anywhere?
>>
ITT: people who don't like Monogatari or Nisekoi and people who have actually watched more than one show by SHAFT.

Akiyuki Shinbo would be the last person to call himself a genius, but I think his work shows real skill at making the most visually interesting work he can given a limited budget and/or shitty material (i.e. Nisekoi). He's also had a knack for matching voice talent to roles. Every studio is going to end up producing QUALITY work at some point, but Shinbo generally at least produces consistently watchable shows. T

That's weird for something that starts in a month. Dying to see it, though.

I love talking about Shaft. All the time in fact.

>>147271782

what's more rare is that shaft is doing a 2 cour show that isn't monogatari.

march comes like a lion is 22 episodes. with both the ending and opening done by bump of chicken, so it's pretty high profile.

It's SHAFT. There won't be a PV for another 2 weeks. They're probably off schedule as always.

With the mighty NHK funding, 3gatsu will probably look as good or better than any high profile anime movies such as GitS, Akira or Kimi no na Wa. Just look at that amazing flapping mouth animation, no other TV anime can compare.

Not to mention it will air during prime time
>>
>>147267924
I hope they kill Fate for good. Silver Link put it on life support. It just needs the final blow. Don't fail us.
>>
>>147271533

Is Araragi still in it?
>>
>>147272105
If they manage to kill Fate, Aniplex will kill them. Doesn't sound so bad actually, two birds with one stone
>>
>>147272180
I doubt they'd do a worse job than DEEN.

>>147271922

There is a PV for it on NHK's youtube channel. It looks passable by anime standards, above average for Shaft standards probably because they don't have Aniplex as the top production committee member screaming at them to make it look as much like Monogatari as humanly possible for commercial reasons.
>>
>>147272180

Who can Kill Aniplex though? How much would it cost?
>>
>>147272325
The only ones who can kill Aniplex are Sony.

Maybe if you people ever looked up from your shitposting for a second you'd notice these things are actually out. Also nope on your theory there sorry to tell you.

>>147272455
What theory?
>>
>>147272398
Then only Nintendo can kill Sony

It looks nothing like monogatari. It looks like SHAFT. Shinbo looked like SHAFT before he even got to SHAFT or considered working on monogatari.
>>
>>147272663
trick'd
>>
>>147272455

Why are Araragi and Nadeko always together?
>>
>>147272663
Are you retarded or just blind? SHAFT looked nothing like Shibo before he joined them. Have you even watched their earlier garbage like He's My Master, Popotan, Rec, Koni-chan? If anything they had a more Gainax feel since they worked as their lapdogs often.
>>
I miss zero budget shaft. And by that I mean early hidamaris.
>>
>>147272848
They're still the same zero budget SHAFT, except nowadays they use Bake-style gimmicks for all their shows.
>>
>>147272848

That fever dream episode is some inspired stuff
>>
Why does /a/ insist on treating studios like a single person? Shinbo, Oishi, Oonuma etc. are all clearly geniuses while others like Miyamoto and Itamura could well be hacks. A studio is just a culture and structure around the people, a studio's staff and therefore quality can change drastically in short periods of time. Not to mention most of the more day to day tasks of a studio are regularly outsourced, so dividing shows by studio is often extremely pointless.

Not if it's KyoAni the one being treated like a single entity. For other studios yeah it doesn't make sense.
>>
>>147273177
Simbo is not a genius according to Ume
>>
>>147273222
Not him, but it still doesn't make sense. The directors are individual human beings with differences.
>>
>>147272894
Bake gimmicks are inherited from hidamari.
>>
>>147271575
Not Shinbo.
>>
>>147273434
Not at SHAFT. Their directors aren't allowed to breathe.
>>
>>147273222
Did KyoAni get any freelancers? I noticed they were hiring.
>>
Dat brand power.

The Stanley Kubrick of the anime industry. Only that Shinbou cares about the source material.
>>
>>147278561
Too bad his goons don't.
Oishi doesn't count as a goon
>>
>>147267924

They're genius hacks.
