Is there anything this studio can't do?
Match their '06 to '10 peak years ever again.
I like Nichijou, but I'm talking about the heavy hitters that made Kyoani a well known commodity. Haruhi, Kanon, Clannad, Lucky Star, and K-On. They've only had a single show in the 7 years since that even came close to matching the renown of those, and it was targeted to the exact opposite audience.
I never understood why with hibike! euphonium that they made Reina and Kumiko seem so gay in official artwork and even moments in the show yet chicken out by saying they were just friends. It just makes no sense of why they did that if they didn't want people to see it that way.
Maintain the careers of newbies. More often than not, the newbies who they tend to cast as leads or main characters have their careers stagnate after their KyoAni shows end.
Canon yuri rarely sells, subtext yuri usually does.
Maintain a compelling narrative. Everything they make is usually carried by animation, humor, or cute characters.
I would say it's because they mostly adapt LN which are largely garbage but their in-house stuff suffers from this too.
When will you quit shilling this zero-range slut who probably got picked for her one big role a decade ago for her looks rather than acting ability? And then she got overshadowed by other idolyuus who can actually act. She has no one to blame but herself.
Meanwhile these cucks do the exact opposite. See Nisekoi, Mekaku, and now 3gatsu.
Nothing from those years have the high level of artistry in some of their newer works.
3gatsu is a masterpiece manga adapted into a masterpiece anime that shits on everything made by Kyoani in the last 5 years.
The only literature award it got was from KyoAni themselves. And considering they gave consolation awards to Phantom World or Kyokai no Kanata I don't think Violet is much of an improvement.
I'm talking about the animation retard. The tracking shot and Kumiko's wide range of subtle expressions are great. Compare it to the cartoony and over the top scene of Bahamot, like day and night.
One is better animated and composed. the other one is just tracking shot of a girl crying with only two faces. Bahamut is literally better than the Kyoani trash. In a technical standpoint and an artistic standpoint.
The second one doesn't particularly look impressive, but if you're comparing it with a kyoani show, why not nichijou or hyouka?
They take inane teenage melodrama way too seriously.
Most of Hibike is just eyeroll inducing if you aren't a 15 year old girl, Hyouka is even worse and practically unwatchable.
I also wish they would flesh out their romance at times. I'd love to see some more mature stuff like spice and wolf. I think the studio could nail that really well.
Kyoani, Trigger, DEEN
You heard it here first
>KyoAni still dominates even with Phantom World and Chunibyo S2 in their recent catalogue
They can't keep getting away with it
I haven't watched deaf girl yet so i'll give you the benefit of the doubt but KyoAni just straight up can't draw hands for shit when they're out of focus, the girls look like they have a sever case of arthritis. The hands don't bother me that much though, not as much as KyoAni making their girls have permanent blush on their cheeks regardless of scenario and will even go as far as putting it on their knees, thighs, shoulders, and chest. It looks stupid.
Just look at the PW images posted at you, "Kyoani can't draw hands" is a dead meme.
And the blush thing is a style choice, it comes up to personal preference so I'm not even gonna debate on that. And it also doesn't show up in all their shows.
why would you bother with something that not only is unfocused but also appears briefly?
Because it seems like KyoAni just doesn't bother drawing fingers right unless they're literally on the screen like >>157365418.
So, they're not wasting time on split-seconds that literally doesn't matter. Got it.
This guy literally had to change his statement from "Kyoani can't draw hands" to "Kyoani don't draw out of focus hands that only appear on screen for an instant appropriately"
Looks like another victory for Kyoani
I wouldn't argue with that, even though Shaft shows look like shit.
But then again I also wouldn't go into a "what can't shaft do" thread and say that they can't draw straight necks or normal rooms.
Any collage of Koe no Katachi hands yet?
Better to wait until 1080 before taking many screenshots. There's so much hand movement though throughout the whole film, not just for sign language either
Reminder that KyoAnus fucked up spectacularly in 2013
"I refuse to stop making masterpieces"
I keep hearing about how Madoka's characters are "one-dimensional" and the script is bad, but I never actually see any examples. So since you're the kino expert, why don't you provide some and say how it should've been done.
Heh, sounds like how they don't disclose the profits from their shop publicly like reputable businesses. How do we know they aren't breaking tax laws?
Meanwhile God's Shaft publishes their profits like honest businessmen.
Shaft publishes their full profits, warts and all.
I keep hearing how the anus's sales are underestimated by two thirds because muh shop, but they never publish those numbers.
Makes ya think.
Stalker doesn't report a lot of shit. Stalker is only an algorithm that relies on rankings from sites such as amazon or animate, sites with enough userbase to roughly guess sales numbers.
It's cause they're slaves now, can't be helped
Jesus Christ what was shinbo thinking?
>shaft has two masters
If they get a third one they can get airtighted all night long
>no such thing as anus shills
Funny thing about anonymous messageboards; no one knows who you are or if you're on anyone's payroll. Just don't fuck up and link to your own Amazon page or announce who you are.
Stick to astroturfing and good old-fashioned gorespammer-style trolling.
Where you even here back then? There was a gorespammer. That was right after the gore spammer (and a couple years after the al gore spammer)
It was actually amusing for a while
>makoto shinkai himself said it was a masterpiece
>some random anon in a taiwanese cave painting site says it's a disaster
Sorry, but the movie is a poorly paced, unfocused, bloated adaption of a manga that wasn't even good to begin with.
Probably one of the worst movies I've seen in recent memory.
>makoto shikai himself said
It was excellently paced, laser focused on the two leads and captured the essence of the manga much better than the manga ever did. It is probably the first story of solipsism and redemption in anime that has been done with actual sincerity and sentiment.
There are somethings Japan can't do, but for everything else, there's Kyoani.
This, it's the closest anime has ever come to Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment and Yamada's expressionistic touch lends itself beautifully to the visual medium of animation. The 100th year of the Japanese cartoon has met its suitable successor. This is equivalent to Resnais redefining cinema as we know it. Bravo.
The pacing was terrible. It rushed through the first two volume undermining the entire story as a result, since the severity of what happened to the protagonists is poorly conveyed.
The characters have never time to breathe, the characterizations are semplified to an absurd degree, the movie jumps from a key scene to the other with no build ups and cool downs making them all fall flat.
It kept elements without purpose considering the cuts, like the confession scene, granma's death, the redhead guy, Shoya being saved without foreshadowing or explaining the presence of his ex friends.
The lack of movie subplot and resulting tension on the characters makes the drama feel unjustified and out of place.
This is the worst adaption in recent memory.
Would not recommend
You have been warned
>the redhead guy
God this was the worst.
I laughed when during the final scene his face showed up while Shouya was crying of happiness remembering his friends, despite the fact that he spoke with him just twice. Completely ruined the climax of the film.
This post was funnier than Nichijou
>he thinks Ume's """""art""""" is good
Everyone looks like they have Down's syndrome. I can see why shaftcucks like it so much.
It's only a vocal minority of anons who actually like it; probably the same """""people""""" who make anti-Kinoani threads.
Haruchika is a COMPLETELY ORIGINAL anime that just happens to bear a slight cosmetic resemblance to Hyouka and Hibike. It's an allegory for the average Japanese soldier's experience during WW2.
Hyouka and Hibike meanwhile are, respectively, blatant ripoffs of Gosick and Drumline. Kadokawa and 20th Century Fox should've sued the shit out of Kyoani.
It's a meme, m8. Based on this...
Yuki Yuna is a COMPLETELY ORIGINAL anime that just happens to bear a slight cosmetic resemblance to Madoka. It's an allegory for the average Japanese soldier's experience during WW2.
Madoka meanwhile is a blatant ripoff of Kamen Rider Ryuki with some Evangelion, Bokurano, and Princess Tutu thrown in. Toei should've sued the shit out of Shaft.
you forgot 2005 where FMP TSR aired.
Which ones are this? Can't find them in Shouko's list of credits.
Kyoani really went all out for Nichijou. The actual source material is really basic with mediocre art and punchlines that don't necessarily land well due to the paneling, but every single scene in the anime is played out so fucking well.
Also the amount of emotion from the VAs, the constant high quality animation (with great character animation), and 10/10 classical OST really made it for me.
It's funny how much creativity Kyoani can put into their manga anime adaptations, just compare the K-ON manga with the anime too.
They even made a bland manga like Kobayashi-san actually watchable too.
Yaoi on the other hand they have mastered.
They will never use their talent and unlimited budget to make a god-tier full on ecchi with uncensored nipples and everything.
Kill me now.
Make anything as good as Haruhi, Lucky Star, K-ON! and Nichijou ever again.
The past decade has proven their "Make LN contest, then let something shitty win and adapt it into something garbage" way of doing things now to be the worst way of making anime.
