Subs are out.
Every extant franchise you love that can be remade or spun off will be repeatedly violated until even the source material is tainted and new franchises are going to be strangled by their own success into flash-in-the-pan cash grabs.
I'd imagine that depends on the reception of this short. I strongly doubt they would dust off the animated version of the IP just a year or two after a live action show to only make one seven minute OVA.
But what do they add? More of Noa and Asuma alternating between top bantz and awkward blushing? Goto playing everybody like a damn fiddle again? I'm not saying I don't want more, but more for more's sake would dilute it and lower its worth.
Youcan change the language to english you know?
It's to fund the series if it gets made, better than doing a kickstarter.
>I haven't seen it
>WAA THEY'RE PISSING OVER MUH NOSTALGIA
It has nothing to do with the original, it doesn't affect the original, if you don't like it then ignore it and that's it.
It looks good though.
Gundam has CGI all the time, there's entire fights in Unicorn being CGI that still look really good.
Only retards like you get your panties twisted because they use CGI, it looks good.
CG is fine. Bad CG is the issue. Is Planetes suddenly worthless because it used CG for some external shots of the space station? Is Patlabor 2 a waste because some shots traced models? Is Ghost in the Shell a worse movie for using CG to portray thermoptic camouflage? CG is a tool. It's about the quality of the tool and how it's used.
CGI is good when used properly.
CG is garbage and can't compare to real hand drawn animation. It's a cheap alternative for cutting costs at the price of any shot at exciting or interesting animation.
Planetes is worthless because it butchers the manga.
Nobody wants to be an animator animator, this is not the 90s.
CGI looks good, will you stop crying already?
Actually you know what, it's my fault for falling for it, next time try to make an actual post instead of barfing the same shit opinion shitposters come up when they cry about
>Tries something different and brings its own take rather than being a dull and dry ad for something that probably wouldn't even work directly translated into anime anyway
>Calling everything you don't like a meme and actually handing out a (you)
>Pretending CG isn't shit
>Nobody wants to be an animator animator, this is not the 90s.
Concrete Revolution and Flip Flappers were both this year and had amazing animation.
>CGI looks good, will you stop crying already?
No it doesn't. I certainly hope you don't thin Etotama was some amazing feat of animation.
>I'm a fucking idiot who doesn't have any standards when it comes to animation, so I'll pretend everyone who actually likes animation in their anime is a shitposter
>mfw /m/fags don't watch the best mecha show currently airing because muh CG
Noa is for
tender lewd with her husbando.
I've already seen and enjoyed it. It manages to capture the whole "mecha in an extremely contemporary environment" that made the original series so great.
>better than doing a kickstarter.
Is it really though? Trigger got more than half a million dollars from their LWA Kickstarter. I don't know if a limited run of overpriced Blu-Rays would yield the same profits.
I would have watched a series about CLAT.
So where do I start if I wanna watch Patlabor now?
Either OVA1 or TV. OVA1 is shorter, so it's probably the better option. From OVA1, you then watch the movies. From TV, you then watch OVA2. It's pretty simple.
Bunch of whiny faggots. The quality varied a lot between OVA,tv and shows so don't bring this hand drawn always superior shit. Plus it's not about robot battles in it's core. I welcome this attempt of bringing it back, hopefully it does well.
>It's a cheap alternative for cutting costs at the price of any shot at exciting or interesting animation.
this is a stupid comment, anything can be a cheap alternative.
2D animation can be lazy too, how often do you see anime scenes where two characters talk and all we see is a background pan, or an image of their mouths opening with minimal animation?
You don't blame the tool for the faults of the artist, pixar movies are all done in CG and yet they are able to captivate millions.
Anyone who hates on CG has never seen anything that tried to use it ambitiously, CG will be the future of anime, it's just like digital media when it replaced hand drawn cels
Doing a kickstarter gives people the right to meddle in your work. You need to keep your deadlines and all that.
You don't really get how anime works, selling BDs is basically them just testing waters for the upcoming series, studios and backers know what will do good or not. If it won't then they don't make it.
I wouldn't mind if it instead of a reboot, it's a continuation.
The old crew is retired/have new postings and this is a new squad of fresh faces trying to fill their shoes using a new Ingram model (chassis untouched).
>The labors looked good for CG
This. I loved the original series, and honestly for what we can expect of modern mecha that looked pretty good.
At least it doesn't look hideously bad like Gundam Origin or Yamato, and to me it felt like it captured the spirit of the old series without really sacrificing much.
I liked it. Even though it's just a short, it feels like they got the essential ingredients in, without feeling like a total retread. I didn't mind the CG, either. I'd like to see a new TV series or something with this staff.
Bandai Visual is infamous for overcharging for stuff. I remember seeing copies of single episode Diebuster volumes in the mall back in like 2005 for 59.99 Canadian plus tax. Gundam Unicorn is like 100 per volume or something as well. They promo boy have the most expensive media all around, like even more than Aniplex
>this is a stupid comment, anything can be a cheap alternative.
No, what you just said was a stupid comment. CG in anime is always used as a cost cutting method because of the low budgets anime usually have. What the fuck does "anything can be a cost cutting method" mean? Training new animators and hiring talented directors to compose good actions scenes, and giving them a loose schedule to work with sure as hell isn't cost cutting. CG allows for rotating the camera and backgrounds without redrawing anything (with is labor intensive with hand drawn) and reuse of models for robots that would otherwise take time and effort to animate because of all the parts.
>2D animation can be lazy too
The both have a bottom, but CG can never get near the heights hand drawn can.
>You don't blame the tool for the faults of the artist
When the tool changes the artist working on the series and how the animation is done, then yes, I blame the tool. The tool is shit.
>Anyone who hates on CG has never seen anything that tried to use it ambitiously
In what? Guilty Gear? Kung-fu Panda? It doesn't change the fact that it's shit in anime.
>CG will be the future of anime, it's just like digital media when it replaced hand drawn cels
You and Calarts can go fuck yourself. The jew that shilled that shit got fired at Disney back when they still had pride in their work. And no, it's not just like digital animation at all. Cel, digital and webgen all still require the same talent and skillset from the artist. CGshit throws that all away entirely.
The ending of the Planetes manga was complete and utter shit compared to the anime.
I'd go so far as to say that they should be treated as two completely separate continuities, like whatever the fuck the Gundam timelines are now.
the last OVA episode where they visit the graves
it was just so out of nowhere at the time
but it tied the mood of the TV timelime nicely with the OVA timeline
at least, the movies
True. All those little snippets all the time.
I suppose it makes a great lesson too about forgiveness and actually coming around to facing problems instead of putting them off forever.
>Finally gives Noa the full context for his bitterness towards his father, opening up to her about something he's incredibly guarded and sensitive about but feels she needs to know
>Even after that, actually tries to talk to him on her account anyway, even if it doesn't go brilliantly
Pretty weird birthday gift, though.
It felt pointless but there's not a lot you can do in 6 minutes. Basically nothing new besides Twitter existing. Still enjoyable at least. I'd watch a longer reboot even if I wouldn't regard it as highly.
I really hope that the reboot will be similar to the OAV timeline.
The goofy characters and comedy, motherfucking badass mecha-design for the Ingram and great action. Patlabor is unique.
>I really hope that the reboot will be similar to the OAV timeline.
>The goofy characters and comedy
Are you sure you're not refering to the tv timeline? Cause it had the bulk of comedy.
The reboot mecha animation looks good so I don't see the problem. It's an example of 3D done right.
It's not so much about cutting costs as it is about getting the animation done on time. As far as I know 3D animators are paid more than 2D ones.
I'm all for more Patlabor. it's my favorite series. but this is bad, and after Next Generation it worries me that another blunder will be last nail in the coffin.
the short felt really generic, which is odd considering Patlabor pushed some boundaries with both the TV and the OVA timelines. it's like they're trying to conform this time around, this reboot looks exactly like any other FotM.
at least the music is still great. and, if anything, all the throwbacks are worth my time, like HOS. I was sure the labor was unmanned at the beginning, gave me chills.
this really reminds of Metal Slug for some reason. the art gallery.
Which makes it all the better. There's something unique about Noa leaving a wrecked Alphonse to take out Zero herself.
I can't describe it, it's just fucking great. The tone is perfect.
I need to watch this movie, I don't care if it's short. It's a fucking miracle after all these years.
It's not something I can recall having seen in any other franchise and it's deeply rooted in the approach that Patlabor takes to mecha. They're machines made of hydraulics, computers and usually plastic armor. They aren't 20 meter tall samurai, they aren't perfect extensions of the pilot, they aren't the apex predators of the battlefield. They're machines and they break like machines. I mean, that scene even opens with a 'low battery' warning.
Plus it's always cool to see Noa being a badass, even if she does immediately collapse afterwards.
>3D in anime
Automatically don't wrong.
CG animators are paid more because their "art" can be recycled endlessly without requiring any of that pesky talent or personality stuff.
Of course he did. He wanted to level with his
lifepartner about something deeply important to him.
