Does KyoAni have anything to offer besides cute/fuckable girls and pretty backgrounds?
Who cares about KyoAni girls? Boys is where it's at
Uhhh, maybe people watch anime for enriching storylines, developed and complex characters, and thought-provoking narrative themes? It's people like you that completely set anime back as an entertainment medium.
basically this with filtered/photoshopped pictures
Cute/fuckable boys, I guess.
If this is true then why is Chitanda so much better than every other Kyoani girl?
Man, I wish a competent studio would do a full ecchi, with actual quality in the animation, and a simple yet lewd story.
And release the BD without censorship and good ero/doujin material.
If only KyoAni could do that...
>and pretty backgrounds?
You can't even see the fucking backgrounds on their shows nowadays
It's just a giant BLUR
This thing about filtered background is so stupid. Even if it was true which it isn't, they still look great, besides, Kyoani has to take shortcuts somewhere since they do most production in-house, cut them some slack, they don't get to outsource all backgrounds to 10 different companies like any other anime studio.
Maidragon will have watercolor backgrounds so stop your bitching.
They only did the anime /a/non, and fortunately the original designs werent changed
bland and uninteresting as it gets, dropped
>k-on and haruhi
Well, you could call them Kyoani's successes
The few images of the K-on source material that I ever watched looks nothing like kyoani's version, so they moe'd the fuck of that one.
haruhi was considered by some the hot shit in its time, but no one outside the rabid fanbase consider this a good anime. did It put some spotlight into kyoani? Yes.
>the other one
I dont know that one
The only thing that I unironically and unapollogetically like from them as a production is Amagi Brilliant Park and Nichijou
I wonder if was their idea to put those ridiculous prices in Nichijou's BD's.
>they moe'd the fuck of that one.
What is this even supposed to mean? It was already a moe manga with generic bishoujo art.
>I wonder if was their idea to put those ridiculous prices in Nichijou's BD's.
Are you retarded?
>maybe people watch anime for enriching storylines, developed and complex characters, and thought-provoking narrative themes?
Is there a hentai studio equivalent to KyoAni? I just want a hentai that has great animation. I'd ask for a big budget hentai but nobody wants to be known as "the guy who worked on that hentai with a big budget" so I guess I'm asking for too much from the nips.
You are doing the anime equivalent of telling a good player to stop hacking. Because you can be proven wrong and then all your stupidity does is just show how good you think Kyoani is.
Even in Eupho that's not true. You still see plenty of unobscured backgrounds.
Uhh, maybe a small minority of people acutally does that but to the majority it's plain and simple entertainment? It's people like you who have no real point to offer yet feel the need to argue about personal preference that
should go back to whereever they came from
It's mostly just to get the bare minimum amount of sales then flip another LN where KyoAni can follow their same formula. When they make a mistake, they have series to fall back on (Phantom World was awful > Hibike s2).
Even then their animation style from a visual perspective ONLY isn't as good as Sunrise or even ufotable.
Christmas cake show with character designs by Kadowaki when?
Also western animation has ugly-as-fuck characters these days. Because everyone is beautiful and making deliberately unappealing characters is progressive. And also sex appeal will corrupt the children.
Rather than dividing them into vague lists, I think it would be more interesting if you explained what you do and don't like about the various character designers at KyoAni.
You know, you can say "America".
KyoAni designs have been too detailed lately, especially with Horiguchi's departure from the studio. She was the only one who did really animation-friendly designs as part of her style.
The two might as well be synonymous. French cartoons hardly make up an appreciable chunk of the industry. And Canadian cartoons fall somewhere in the valley between nightmare and joke.
Oh come on, people have posted 1:1 real life photo comparisons with anime thousands of times. If it's drawn instead of filtered it's nothing impressive because they're just traced over.
>Kadowaki came up with them older women designs.
Oh my fucking word.
>that time kyoani hand painted a sink for a throwaway shot
Maidragon's prop designer did this for a throw-away gag.
>Does KyoAni have anything to offer besides cute/fuckable girls and pretty backgrounds?
I can see how it could seem that way after Euphonium. That show was literally one giant polished turd. I honestly believe someone at Kyoani went through a midlife crisis or perhaps some "adult" made fun of what they did for a living and they felt the need to turn to shit just to satisfy and get a nod from some old assholes who don't even watch anime. Hopefully they see a psychiatrist and get over that shit fast and go back to doing things that are FUN
I typically watch KyoAni shows because they always have good visual direction. You can complain about backgrounds to your heart's content but at the end of the day they're just that: backgrounds. Sure, it can be distracting, but when I look at a show's visuals I look at character animation, framing, shot composition, fluidity of motion, the pace of the editing, all things that KyoAni do consistently far better than any other studio. Even if they are entirely hard-drawn I would agree that the detail of the backgrounds and the awkward way in which less detailed characters are pasted on can look dreadful in wide shots (>>151745850) but otherwise I think the studio showcases a level of animation and features a directorial staff with such vision that completely surpasses anything else in the industry.
With that said a lot of their shows recently have been shit and that includes this complete shit that's going to air next season.
>people watch anime for enriching storylines, developed and complex characters, and thought-provoking narrative themes
What did he mean by this?
I dunno, it's not what I go to KyoAni to see. All that I gush about with the visual direction is kind of lost on this silly show about dragon maids. If it were Doga Koba making it I think I would be hype but the only good shows KyoAni have made since Nichijou have survived on their grounded dramatic elements (Tamako Market/Love Story, Free!, Hibike) and the more fantasy orientated stuff has been disappointing.
Also we're talking about a show directed by the guy whose most recent contribution to KyoAni was Amagi Brilliant Park, and I would be hard-pressed to find something worse that the studio has produced.
I'm usually a big fan of KyoAni's background work and the work the photography department puts into the photographic effects, but there can sometimes be a problem where they'll overdo it a bit or mess up the balance. In photography if you have enough of one thing, it usually means you can only get so much of another. You can argue that it's intentional, they're creating these pictures from the ground up, so there's no reason to adhere to the physical limits of photography, or that they meant for it to be realistic and they were just being absent minded...
In this shot I would argue the focal blur is too much. It ought to be about half as much. If they wanted the extreme bokeh, then the perspective of the shot, which is fairly ordinary looking, would have to be more flattened out because you would need to be much further away using a more extreme telephoto lens
I thought that scene was intentional. The context was that Kumiko was smitten with Reina and wandering through a dreamlike haze. It was built up in the entire sequence starting from when they saw each other in the train.
>Kumiko and Reina are adapted
>Asuka is original
Is it right to say that? On the book covers she's still a tall, beautiful girl with long black hair and red glasses. If your definition of "adapted" allows for them to not literally be exactly the same (which is obviously the case), then Asuka is still an adapted design, unlike Taki for example, whose descriptions they threw out, choosing instead to model him on the new actor for Q from Skyfall.
They toned down her elegant looks because they felt it jibes with how much she goofs around, but that's it, it's only a subtle change, her design is still adapted.
These time are long gone anon. Thats why anime is on the bottom of the artistic shithole. Thats why it has nothing to offer exept of le cute lolis and nicely drawn backgrounds. Thats why i didnt watch anything for like 5 years. And thats why anyone with little social life, iq>75 and just minimal requirements for story has stopped watching it. All whos left are manchildren and ugly fat whores who like to pretend living in this imaginary 2d world cause the real one is too scary for them.
>developed and complex characters
>and thought-provoking narrative themes
Zero points for KyoAni. Just plain moe/drama shit since Hyouka. I'm sick and tired of this "all art, no substance" crap.
>what is clannad?
>what is haruhi?
>what is lucky stary?
>what is k-on?
Do you seriously think none of these have made an impact and have lasting recognition? Are you just pretending to be retarded?
>Glasslip looks like shit, but KyoAni would make it look good too.
You mean use shit character designs, shit colour palette anime and use a shit ton of instagram filters?
Don't delude yourself.
Name one anime series from 2016 with more sakuga than Hibikek. What's that? You can't? I thought so.
There you go.
Nice damage control.
"Animation friendly" designs are an excuse to be cheap. KyoAni nowadays needs no such things, they can handle detail.
They now have the cute as a button design as well.
>They didn't even draw anything.
Does this confirm Kyoani diesn't animate they bring a camera with them into the 2D world?
Stop being literal.
No, it's a nicely drawn background ruined with crappy filters in an attempt to make the show look warm and comfy.
If you honestly can't spot all the blur or the colour difference, then you need to check your eyes out.
You should hang out at Reddit or MAL. I think you'll fit right in with the community over there.
That's, you know, your opinion? But humor me, how was it ruined with "crappy filters"?
Is your pea brain capable of comprehending that color palette sets the tone and atmosphere for the picture?
Were you dropped as a child, anon?
That colour palette looks like piss.
Even real life >>151755732 looks better.
But since you're acting like you know what you're talking about, explain how that particular colour palette sets the correct tone and atmosphere for the picture?
> Warm filter
> Looks like piss
Yeah sure dude.
The real point here is that even if Kyoani uses filters or blurry effects, why the overreaction? It looks good in my eyes. The warm filter provides a comfy atmosphere, or even it's useful for sunsets or evening enviroments. And hey, all the studios use them.
You cannot honestly believe this. What /a/ thinks is good is not the same as what the rest of the world thinks is good. Not that it is a bad thing; just don't say Kon is the most influential anime of the decade.
> developed and complex characters
> thought-provoking narrative themes
But I watch anime for the lesbian little girl versions of real life aces, who fight in panties against aliens that look like nazi superweapons and prototype planes, with occasional stories that have real life relevancies in them. And the CGI versions of ships like the POW or the Akagi.
> It's people like you that completely set anime back as an entertainment medium.
>thinks western internet platforms like 4chan and tumblr has influence over moon media
Robot Heart Update will likely get an anime first because it's getting a second book
but it's a romcom too.
