>Budget for KyoAni shows is nothing special, in fact is below average

KyoAni very clearly produces the best anime in the industry and it's not even close. Watch any anime series by any other studio after watching any KyoAni anime from K-ON onwards and it will look amateurish compared to the KyoAni anime. How do they accomplish this with tiny budgets?

By not being based in Tokyo and by having grunts from their animator school do some of the work for free. They also tend to hire new voice actors for main roles.

Kyoani employs many in-house animators on company salary. Salaried labour isn't listed under budgeting the same way that contract labour is. This makes their numbers seem deceptively low, when in reality the production costs would very similar.

Good schedule and not working in Tokyo, maybe.

Yes. Artificial intelligences will replace all those female animators according to that AT-X guy.
First, get rid of all the SEA-animators doing inbetween. Then, all those women animators in Japan doing inbetween. Then, all the males that remain.

Then, anime will finally be churned out by the thousands per season instead of only 50 and more.

Hi there!

You seem to have made a bit of a mistake in your post. Luckily, the users of 4chan are always willing to help you clear this problem right up! You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops! You should always remember to stop using your tripcode when the thread it was used for is gone, unless another one is started! Posting with a tripcode when it isn't necessary is poor form. You should always try to post anonymously, unless your identity is absolutely vital to the post that you're making!

Now, there's no need to thank me - I'm just doing my bit to help you get used to the anonymous image-board culture!

In other words, their animators are being paid garbage to create movie-level animation.

There will never be an artificial intelligence that will be able to translate to English from Japanese to the level of competency as a human. They would need to understand context clues, abstract concepts, differing formality of conversation, seemingly make up words when a literally translation doesn't exist.

Honestly, speaking just to art and technical quality, I think KyoAni has been rock solid since the beginning with Fumoffu and especially Air, not just since K-ON.

As for how well a show is adapted or directed compared to how well other animation studios do theirs, well, that's subjective and pointless to debate.

It's not the WHY or HOW they're cheap, but how they manage to have such standards with less than other studios.

If you make the point that living in Kyoto is much cheaper than Tokyo, it still doesn't explain how they have less key animators/people while still producing more.

KyoAni has a strict policy to not overwork, and there's documentation out there that provides info on their salaries, more specifically a guy recently complained about them being misandrists and only giving benefits to the women working there, his salary was well above the industry standard and his whining was bullshit as well since men are still the majority in the key positions at KyoAni.

Kyoani is of course the undisputed #1 studio, but who comes in second place?

Nips like to whine a lot on social media.
Just like that girl who complained about having to pay for using her workdesk at P.A. Works, and then it turns out that she was just a shitty animator who couldn't even become a key animator.
>>
>>153584961
Sunrise, A-1, Dogakobo and Trigger are some that keeps some quality standards in my opinion.
Their choice of material to adapt or even writing original shows cab be questionable, but their animation is solid.

Why? Can't I compare everything?
Of course Kimi no Nawa had a shit-ton of people involved with it, however it's a completely different scenario with older works. Shinkai and CW board didn't even have the money to employ more people.
P.A.Works only outsources background finishing and in-betweens, how the fuck is that relevant to my question?

They have extreme routine with their generic samefaces, and they pace extremely minor animation in such a rhythmic and measured way as to capture the watcher's attention for a longer period of time per movement, thus limiting the amount of drawings needed per second. They limits the character's ranges of expressions as well, instead making them identical for all characters, thus building a routine for that too while saving themselves troublesome indvidual characterization. What you get is a dull generic nothing that contains much less in the same period of time, but KyoAnus fans don't watch anime to be entertained, they watch it to pass the time.

Because that's when the sakuga-twitter circle started noticing the amount of animation directors jumping up crazily for most shows in that season, when animation quality for all of them started dropping down.

KyoAni is the only studio that bothers to animate natural body language on the regular in TV anime, though. Most other studios do flapping mouths and just bother to animate shit during action sequences.
>>
>>153585614
Sounds like an attention disorder
>>
>>153585657
More like the "realistic" style they were going for with the shitty camera effects and terrible backgrounds distracted them from doing any decent work with the animation.

Definitely an attention disorder on top of faulty memory. Seek a doctor.

All I see is an inordinate amount of time and focus spent on irrelevant miniscule changes in mundane movements, for the sake of dragging uneventful and easily animated scenes out for as long as possible without making the viewer's attention wander.

>>153585899
Probably not since Eupho was definitely their most controversial show since god knows when. The threads were constant arguments over the visuals.

>>153585643
Action sequences are the only thing everyone in the world cares about in anime. Nips, frogs, krauts, spics, brits, burgers, chinks, gooks, you name it.

Characterization through body language. Subtle and a good storytelling technique for subconsciously building characters. Not many anime directors in the industry know how and when to utilize it, and not many studios have the time to bother with such things, so I can understand you guys if you find them unnecessary if you're used to low budget, sloppily directed trash.
>>
>>153586205
All late-night anime is low-budget sloppily directed trash. No exceptions.

>>153586205
It's not subtle at all, not with how much time and focus is spent on every single thing. What they've done is create an expression and animation standard that's as unchanging and limited as possible. It's familiarity, not subtlety.

>Not even while being a machine girl can she be left with wet clothes. As a change of clothes was necessary, she lay a bathrobe around her supposedly perfect body and headed for the bathroom. It had been a while since anyone other than Oscar regularly used it, so in a lapse of memory, he entered it without knocking and ended up seeing her while she was had not changed yet.

>“Ah, I’m sor… ry… eh?”

>He swallowed his breath due to perplexity.

>“EEEH?!”

>What was reflected in Oscar’s eyes was a sight more bewitchingly beautiful than any naked woman. Dripping golden hair. Beautiful blue orbs of a dimension that would not soften even within a painting. The finely-shaped lips just below them. A flesh body with a slender neck, an outstanding collarbone, plump breasts, and feminine curves.

>Her artificial arms consisted of metal rings from the shoulders to the fingertips. But it was only them. Despite the many scratches, other than the arms, the rest was surprisingly real skin. With that delicate body, she did not seem at all like a mechanical doll, but a relatively normal human being.

>With everything he had believed in until then being mantled over by the shocking revelation, Oscar tried to confirm what he was seeing many times.

>“Master.” Violet called with a voice that seemed to be judging him as he continued to ogle in astonishment.

>“UAAAAAAH! UAAAAAH! UAAAAAHAAAAAH!”

>Part of the outcome of that incident was Oscar’s screaming. The other was him half-crying while going beet-red, after having yelled on top of his lungs, frantically inquiring, “Are you human, after all?!”

>Wrapping a towel around herself, Violet plainly commented, “Master is, truly, a troublesome person.” Her cheeks were rose-dusted as she muttered, her face a little lowered.

You have zero clue about animation, stop pretending like you know something or that this blog is shit, because you are making a fool out of yourself. You are literally incapable of writing anything noteworth about animation when it comes to certain scenes, key animators or episodes. Just stop please. People here can only talk about "muh story" and "muh characters" and "muh obvious" things and circlejerk and repeat the opinions of others like sheeps. But when it comes to actual knowledge about animation, direction and techniques you only hear crickets. But you can prove me otherwise and link me to some of yours truly amazing blog post about animation techniques.

You don't get to decide what type of animation is best, it's all subjective. I personally hate the smears in Trigger shows, specially because they usually last for 2 or more frames on screen, and are very over-the-top, making them 'too' noticeable, I prefer something more subtle, something you only catch subconsciously to help give the notion of fast movement. Trigger smears don't bring that point home for me.

They had less animators per episode, but most definitely worked on each episode longer, meaning that each animator costed more to the studio than usual (and kyoani animators presumably get paid more anyways due to the structure of the studio)

KyoAni had pretty noticeable smears in K-ON or whenever Horiguchi was animation supervisor.

>>153595374
Been rewatching the show and I gotta say that K-on Kyoani is quite different from modern Kyoani from an animation and production standpoint.

It was eight (six) years ago, after all.

Who are the most noteworthy directors beside Yamada in KyoAni?

Hyouka director? Anyone else?

They have a pretty strong episode director line-up these days. Kigami and Ishidate are veterans who tend to deliver, while Taichi Ogawa and Haruka Fujita are younger staff who have the potential for promotion to series director. Action animator Shinpei Sawa just got promoted to episode director in Maid Dragon, his episode was the best-animated so far.

Takemoto was great with Hyouka and Disappearance, but he prefers to do comedy like with Fumoffu, ABP and Maidragon

also salvaged Lucky Star from Yutaka Yamamoto's hands.

He used to be my favorite Kyoani director but Yamada's streak really is too good to ignore.

They treat their staff very well and hire like-minded people, as well as only taking projects they all have an interest in. This is why all Kyoani shows have such similarities, because it's what the Kyoani stuff like, and they pick stuff they like to adapt because it ensures they're motivated and invested in a good final project. With other studios you can be sure that at least someone on the production team have no artistic interest in the product, which leads to sloppy decisions and work in some aspect of the show.

>>
>>153602961
Don't get me wrong, I like KnK. I think it's a great love story and I like the story, I just disagree a bit with how it was presented. The visuals were gorgeous throughout, including animation, storyboards, designs, and color palette; the romance was very subtle and natural, etc. However the constant back and forth between comedy and drama was a bit disconcerting (I blame Hanada for this). I'm the biggest advocate for KnK when people call bullshit on the ending, but I do agree that the story wasn't presented in the most appealing way. It's certainly great in hindsight or after a rewatch when you already know what's going on, but the first time you watch it, the story might not be too engaging if you don't get to episode 9.

Is this an alternate timeline?
>>
>>153603219
I found it fine up until episode 9, and the last 4 episodes were great. The comedy drama balance wasn't an issue as it was full drama mode after the OP lead in to the backstory episode (which was still the best use of an OP in a show I've seen) and the ending made sense if you paid attention, especially during episode 10 or 11 (whichever one Takemoto directed).

Shaft wasn't the one collecting the gataribux is what anon meant.

I'm sure the ending made sense, I've explained it dozens of times to people here. All I'm saying is if Ishidate got his hands on some good material (which the KnK novels aren't, according to people who have read them), like VEG, he could make a show that would really shine.

Kyoani basically uses LNs as rough ideas and just does their own thing. Sure they're best works are adaptations of great material, but I still like KnK a lot (mostly the last 4 episodes) and Phantom World outside of the shitty ending. They're just a great studio.

KyoAni has only done major changes to their own LNs and coincidentally their only LNs they have adapted were honorable mentions in contests where no grand prizes were awarded, so they kind of admit "they're not that good" or basically "they're OK ideas, but could be done better" which is what they do. VEG is a grand prize winner though, and they have said they are very pleased with it. I'm not expecting the adaption to be different from the source material, although very few people will be able to tell. I know they have a reputation of turning shit to gold, but besides adding original scenes, they haven't changed much in those adaptions like what they did to Chuuni or KnK. Hell, Hibike didn't change much other than some characters' roles in the adaption, this is because they decided to adapt it because they liked the novel in the first place.

Also Phantom World's last episodes were great, I don't understand why you wouldn't like them. For an episodic show, they do a great job of setting up a satisfying and impactful conclusion to the previous episodes. I actually think the first half was rather weak (I liked it, but only episode 4 was really good), and it picked up in the second half, and the ending was my favorite part.

I familiar with the contests and the rankings of the winners. I didn't mention Hibike because honestly it just wasn't that good of a series.

Phantom World's last episodes weren't bad, in fact the second to last one might be the best alongside the rabbits, /ss/, bear world and haunted house. The problem is that they did the cliched anime "just forgive the shit parents" thing, and it completely soured the ending.

Let's start with the first point. Why was the main character bad? Explain it in a way that actually shows you watched the show.

>>153605316
Or maybe they're completely full of shit, just like the people who shitposted about the ending despite entire threads breaking it down step by step for you fucking retards. There are still people saying the ending didn't make sense despite people in threads explaining it step by step, and the sequel movie literally confirming that those explanations were right. No, a bunch of hollow complaints from people who either didn't watch or didn't pay attention to the show don't qualify legitimate problems.

Because if she wasn't the stereotypical moeblob, they were trying to give her some tragic backstory with that other girl who hates her but then lives with her for comedy hijinks.

The show constantly tries to show her as some cool demon slayer, but then she goes right back to being retarded with her fuyukai desu. This doesn't endear us to her at all, it just makes literally any other character much more interesting by comparison.

The few episodes where you think something significant might happen is immediately undone by the episode's end.

At the end they desperately try to fit the entire narrative in two episodes, but end up with a really infuriating end to push the movie.
>>
>>153605436
>No reply
Didn't think so.

>>153605541
The other girl didn't hate her, try watching the resolution to that arc again. Saying "fuyuukai desu" isn't retarded, and the clumsy girl act was actually an act she put on which completely dissolved after the reveal about her past. Nothing significant is undone by the end of episodes, what the hell are you even referring to with that?

So it looks like your complaints about her boil down to you not liking her catchphrase, and you making up some shit about the endings if episodes undoing things. Did you actually watch the show or did you browse the threads, watch a PV and look for things to complain about?
>>
>>153585038

That's only because she had no dialogue for the last couple episodes.
