>Makoto Shinkai has a problem, a big problem. His mystical teenage body-swap movie “your name.” has become such a massive hit it’s beginning to worry him. “It’s not healthy,” the boyish director told AFP. “I don’t think any more people should see it.”

>And now there’s talk of Oscars. “I really hope it doesn’t win,” he added.

>"I am absolutely not at Miyazaki’s level. Honestly, I really don’t want Miyazaki to see it because he will see all its flaws.”

We are talking about anime here, the visual and presentation probably make up about 90% of the meat. Plot probably the rest of the 10%. As long as they are passable, it is alright. I mean there is a reason anime is the best medium for SoL where plot is almost non existent. Not to mention how majority try to be plot heavy always ended up being a train wreck and shit.

I mean the storyline here is just like a ripoff of lake house/il mare/love letter. Seriously, if all anime look as good as this, we would probably be heading back to the golden age of 80/90s high budget OVA.
>>
It's asian thing, not just Japanese. In the west, if someone gives you a compliment; its normal to reply "yes!! Thank you! I worked hard and managed to beat everyone with my intellect and skill! Haha thanks for noticing!"

But the Asians and the British have a culture of humility where it's condisered rude to just revel in praise, even if you created something worthy of doing so. Look up speeches from the Oscars vs asian media awards. Everyone in Hollywood talks about how long they wanted to win and how much the award validates them etc. In the east they usually say something along the lines of "thank you very much, this is another reason for me to work even harder and deliver more great work for you to enjoy".

As an American I honestly find it refreshing. Especially when it comes to something that's such a massive success like this film, what is he supposed to say?

"Yes I made the greatest film ever and the box office proves that. Drink up plebs, it's a masterpiece"

Everyone knows it's a massive success so showing humility in the face of that seems like the proper thing to do. Especially for an artist.

Okay, no. This is not true. You are basically saying visuals are everything and plot doesn't mean anything.

I certainly don't agree, I watch things mainly for the plot. But that's me. I think for other people, it should be something like %50 plot %50 visuals. You're telling a story with this medium. No matter how pretty, if it's shitty it really doesn't have any value.

Why is Eva so famous and we're still talking about it 20 years later? Not because of the shiny visuals, let me tell you.

Good looking anime with no plot comes and goes, they don't mean anything in the long run. Good stories stay though, even with bad visuals. We connect with characters, watch them throughout their stories and feel something with them. Just good wallpaper material isn't good anime.

Sure it might look dated nowadays but I dare said no TV anime came close to what Eva did back then. The OP alone was enough to blow the fuck out of anything back then. Also how the fuck do you think Anno got his start? By fucking making an OP that was so good visually and was still worshiped to this day.

Oh come on, Eva is famous for it's last episodes and characters, not its OP. Jesus Christ, go read some discussions on it, no one is talking about how visually fantastic Eva's OP was.

Tragedies are becoming just as bad as revenge plots. The only reason they're popular is because they're entertaining trainwrecks, just like how revenge plots are entertaining fulfillment.

>>151517276
It was basically a joke, too. Frozen came out the same year so even if Madoka received a nomination it wouldn't have stood a chance because of the Disney stranglehold. Plus it wasn't a standalone film so no western film critic (or any self-respecting critic period) would give a fuck. Most film/literary awards are given to works that stand on their individual artistic merits.

>>151517926
But the direction/storyboarding/composition in Madoka were actually really great. Shinbo and Inu Curry carried the fuck out of the visual presentation.

The biggest issue it'd face with legit critics is that the narrative and writing are too shallow and just fall apart if you put them under a microscope. It's still better than your typical Disney feature length music video, but it wouldn't stand against higher-class western cinema unlike Miyazaki's films which carry more serious themes and messages.

It's almost hilarious looking back at how people were hailing Madoka as "the Evangelion of mahou shoujo" and now it's just "that show that rekindled adult-oriented mahou shoujo".

>>
>>151518524
Rebellion is a visual masterpiece but it indeed ruined all of the significant themes and characterization in the TV series. It's a shame, they already had it working fine as a cash cow with merchandise and spinoffs.

I think its influence was significant as well. I enjoyed Mahou Shouko Ikusei Keikaku immensely, so while Madoka might not stand forever as a piece of art the Butcher at least did a good job sparking some creativity in other writers.

>Why is Eva so famous and we're still talking about it 20 years later? Not because of the shiny visuals, let me tell you.
Part of Evangelion's legacy was fucking up the mecha genre with Yamashita's nontraditional designs. And the series was fantastically storyboarded and inked up until 25+26 where they semi-intentionally, semi-budget defficiently degraded the animation quality.

The BDs are beautiful and all of the hand-drawn scenes under Anno's directions still have massive impact on rewatching. Visuals were definitely a strong aspect of Eva, just like every other aspect of it. The writing carried it, sure, but all aspects held up and complimented the work fairly equally.

>>151519926
>Tezuka killed the industry in its crib
How so?
>>
>>151519679
Because his work isn't of the same "caliber" or really "type" as Miyazaki.

Miyazaki makes fantasy stories that are allegorical for real world social/economic/political issues, stories that heavily concern or analyze human nature. He's a guy who lived through WW2 and strives to deliver messages of peace and prosperity in hopes that he can inspire people to better themselves and the world around them.

Kimi no Na wa is supposed to be an entertaining, emotional teenage drama backed by light themes of coming-of-age, dealing with loss, and moving towards the future. It's not derivative or even really inspired by Miyazaki's work. It's just a completely different class and Shinkai is honest and humble in admitting that it is the case and they shouldn't be compared.
>>
>>151520103
He basically birthed the industry and then introduced the cycle of milking the same idea repeatedly because it sells well instead of striving to introduce more creative ideas.

Although I wouldn't really say it was "killing the industry in its crib", since the industry was just budding and people didn't really know where to go until the mid 80s when anime and manga really hit their stridge.
>>
>>151520103
He created the "tradition" of working his staff to the bone for little pay in harsh conditions under strict time pressures. Though he probably didn't have much choice at the time thanks to lack of resources, since he was the pioneer everyone else just copied his model.

Les Triples de Belleville actually made a great run in French theaters. It made something like 40 Million. So yeah it's not some arthouse project but a big production that BTFO everything produced in Japan excluding some few productions.

So now that Shinkai has taken over as the top director in Japan, Miyazaki can go back to his day job of complaining about ipads and young people

Oh no, the anime industry will actually start producing movies that look and sound like movies.
Oh, the tragedy...

Face it, the anime film industry can only go up.
When the new Digimon Adventure movies look bad even by TV anime standards, then there is a definite problem.

Personally, I hope you're right, I hope everyone tries to emulate Makoto Shinaki. At least then we'll get movies with garbage writing but pretty visuals as opposed to what we're getting now, films with garbage writing and garbage visuals.

Every movie that came out this year and made more than 800Million en looks great. Doreamon, Conan, OP, KnK, Kono Sekai, Your Name, Shin Chan and Youkai Watch are all great productions. Even Classmates looks good despite being a 20 screens affair.
Digimon and Yugi are TV episodes airing at cinemas like Gundam Unicorn.

So is this guy the new guy for /a/ to be absolutely ass blasted over along with Miyazaki since he had a movie as successful as his?
>>
>>151514571

What you mean like average old school Japanese humility and ultra politeness and respect towards their elders as opposed to the talk the talk manner of the modern corporate production committees? Because believe it or not some people don't feel like acting like asshats and just want to do their work and also believer there are traditions in their culture worth holding onto. Not everybody is cynical human waste that doesn't give a shit about anything or anyone there /a/
>>
>>151526084
Miyazaki wishes he was as successful as Shinkai.
>>
>>151514798

That's basically how anything marketed and produced by Aniplex comes across without directly saying it though they're pretty unique in that regard. Shinkai tends more toward the norm.
>>
>>151515732

That makes absolutely no fucking sense and the world doesn't work the way you think it does /a/. Seriously consider going outside once in a while and living a little in the real world. Some of you might find it enlightening, others might curl up into a ball though.
>>
>>151517276
I don't even think it made the short list, it was submitted for consideration by arrogant Sony people and summarily rejected for obvious reasons. I think you might be thinking of Katsuhiro Otomo's Combustible or something.

Anyway it has absolutely zero chance of winning. There's no way to make it past the wall of Disney Pixar because half the time the electorate doesn't even watch anything besides their entry and half that time they don't even watch any of them cause cartoons are for kids so fuck it just give it to the known brand.

The only influence it might had is getting the story easier to be accepted by the publishers.
>>
>>151517926

It's a fucking mess of a poorly paced movie whose essence is basically shock value that also requires you to have seen a TV series to make even remote sense of it and as someone who liked the TV series even I struggled with it's wacky little twist ending, and no I really don't want a conversation or defense force about it. That's not the point I'm trying to make.

Honestly the entire movie banked on the fanaticism for a property that Aniplex knows how to exploit out of people, it can't stand in a vacuum outside that like at least the TV series could hence that's already damning to it for serious consideration by critics that aren't paid off mouthpieces for Sony/Aniplex (so basically nobody outside of Japan, ANN and Crunchyroll) let alone the Oscars.

Except not at all. Precure still runs all the same, the Sailor Moon revival ultimately became pretty great by the time of S (Though that was the best material in the franchise to work with too IMO), Card Captor Sakura is coming back and looks much the same in Clamps early artwork. I just don't see it at all. Yeah there have been a few late night anime dark magical girl shows but late night anime is derivative trash anyway so that's to be expected after a hit.

Anyway how did you fucks manage to twist this thread into talking about yet another Aniplex hypebeast thing? What the fuck /a/

He's someone that actually makes anime about things with themes and commentary as opposed to just for quick money. It's no wonder /a/ despises him seeing as he isn't shallow human waste.

Maybe he's worried he's picked up the infamous fanatical otaku audience that'll idolize him and then try to stab him to death at a public appearance years down the line like what happens with idols. I mean WWII vets will probably tell you but nobody gets worked up into a blood frenzy and can take it quite as far as a Japanese person when they're a "true believer" of something.

Had the chance to see it in a cinema before it pretty much disappeared from around my place. There's still a few showings but at late-night. Easily the best movie I've seen all year, mostly because it's not complete shit like 80% of movies that Hollywood churn out these days. Only reason I went out of my way to see it was because of a youtube video like the one linked but I think it was much longer with scenes of the town exploding.
It's not everyday that a film is so beautifully stunning that it can make someone watch it from seeing one video. If anybody has the video to hand, it would be much appreciated.

>not at Miyazaki's level
>some scenes in the movie are animated at 10 fps

Yup, he's right.

Is there a video or some sort of categorized list that details all the "plot holes" from this film.

Only "plotholes" I've seen were the forgetting about dates/times on cellphones and the void that is a lack of triple-figure cup lolicons for the moe crowd.

HOL UP
U BE SAYIN
A BOY FINNA
fall in love with a girl.

Unable to confess, he is gifted by a deus ex machina with the girl's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls her, and is overjoyed to find out that she has a crush on him as well.

But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day's confessions to the girl, she only looks at him with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, he finds out that the girl he called is not the same girl he fell in love with. In fact, she doesn't exist in this universe at all. She is the girl's alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with the MC's own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of her crush.

Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.

The Angry Birds creator became this way too.

Maybe Shinkai is genuinely afraid of his money hungry relatives.

>movies always follow the same formula and have nothing other than visuals to carry it
>through sheer stroke of luck he hits it big
>gets compared to an actual decent filmmaker that can produce content that isn't purely good looking
>everyone sucks his dick more than they ever did now
>other less talented studios will rehash this fucking formula for regular TV shows and movies for the next two seasons to cash in on le tragedy memeshows, further plunging anime into the shithole as "boy and girl can't be together" becomes the next fad after low quality idolshit dies down two seasons from now.

Well that anon is a fucking retard and can't see the difference between excessive HDR and lens flares making up 90% of the content to extremely well drawn animation complementing an already solid and enjoyable story.

Family friendly standalone anime movies were the biggest mistake.

I haven't seen this movie yet.
Should I?

I would be worried too. How can he outlive this? He will be forever known as the Your name guy. Everything he does from now on will be on it's shadow. No matter how much he tries. There's no place to go but down. People won't even care about quality, if it doesn't break records it will be labelled as a failure.

just watched the movie

pretty okay IMO, so why it's a big hit again? meme? at least it doesnt pull normal end like 5 cm / second
