How hard is to make a 2 minute long full-fledged dance where we as the viewers get to enjoy some nice movements and music on the screen and not just get told by third parties how cool what is happening off screen is.

it would be nice, but is probably really complicated and would show how shit Tatara actually is, remember that you are never shown that in the manga, despite every character saying he is still amateur level

>>161811483
Even Yuri on Yaoi tried its hardest to have some actually skating every episode. Better have the movement. It doesn't matter how shinny it looks, it just not impressive.
>>
In the end the manga is superior to the anime, is a way better experience to read it and listen waltz, tango or whatever they are dancing. Is kinda sad because if they had the budget this could have been AOTS

Did you also complain in Your Lie in April when they changed the performance music to sound more surreal? The point of the music is for tone. The scenes would have been far less emotional with just basic competition music playing the entire time.

The dance is suppose to work with the music and everyone there was plenty emotional. If they can't find the proper music and animation to do it, then director just sucks ass. How am I suppose to immerse myself in the atmosphere that the anime is trying to portray when I am not looking at the same thing that the people inside the anime are looking and being impressed? It completely threw me off the moment they stopped the waltz. And the most pathetic part is that the "animation" was even that synced even with the random ass background music.

>>
>>161811884
Are you retarded? You're not in the show. The actual storyboarding and choreography is not made for the audience in the show. It's made for us the actual viewer. The dance goes through a few different phases and each has their own tone which is where the different music tracks come in. Having one basic dance track throughout would not show how in the beginning they are struggling to gain the audiences attention with variations sprinkled here and there, to the flower blooming past the frame.

Notice how the attention is at first focused on Fujita and there's more tense music since he's trying his hardest to beat Shizuku. Then the attention shifts to Mako and we have a totally different tone. The music softens to show off how incredibly beautiful she and her performance are. This is such basic shit I don't get how you don't understand it.

You the viewer are not supposed to be watching what the people in the show are watching because it would be a regular fucking dance routine. This is a fictional show and to get the point across they use surreal visuals and different music tracks.

Yes. She's literally made for rough hate sex. And out of Tatara's partners so far, she has the most development with him. I'm pretty sure she's going to be his long term partner. It makes sense too since Shizuku and Mako were both "borrowed".

If they showed the real thing no one would be moved by it. Go to youtube, watch a 1 minute waltz and see what it does to you. It's the reaction from the audience and other characters, the internal monologues, the dramatic stylized stills, the emotional music and the flashbacks, put together appropriately, that conveys the intended message. This is basic stuff for any kind of sports anime or film. If they showed that scene in a realistic manner all those reactions would look comically out of place.

Manga had the same problem, it was all flashly and ridicilous and amazing but then the other characters say how horrible his dancing is, like what? I still am not sure if he's suppose to be leading in the dancing with her pair, or if he's suppose to be moving in tact with her, four legs, take the reigns, the mangaka makes all of it look good! When everything is good I don't know when the characters are dancing shitty!

If your basing that opinion off of SnB, then that's a bad comparison. Bahamut has shit tons of money poured into it courtesy of Cygames. Just look at the decline in quality of YoI after the first two eps.
>>
>>161818891
Holy shit are you me? I couldn't stand that show after the first few episodes when the novelty wore off.

That show had no respect for your time, reusing the dance animations like a fucking magical girl show, but at least you're seeing girls get undressed in those.

Even Panty and Stocking made them into a joke, but the only joke in YoI was the animation with the only benefit being "I guess this shit is sorta choreographed"

Then I wake up and find out everybody is hailing the show as the second coming and the best animated show ever of everything? What happened?
>>
>>161819015
The most recent trailer barely has a whole lot of animation, but a bunch of the shots had CG models and the last scene was CG too. Hell, even the first trailer was a bunch of CG. Don't count on most, if not all the action being done in CG.
>>
>>161819165
>What happened?
Fujos happend. And the add to that the type that don't even watch anime latched on to it because it was one giant faggot festival, and being gay is in style these days. So for most people who don't watch anime, the animation looked amazing since they didn't have anything to compare it to.
>>

I understand your gripe, but come on, this "it has to be literal" is getting old, its not an obligation for a show to show you the most intimate details of their main activity.
e. g. complaining on 3 gatsu no lion for not teaching you how to play shogi
As far as I remember nobody complained on Nodame Cantabile for not teaching you piano or how to be an orchestra director.
Yes its nice to learn something because you are reading a manga / watching an anime, but activities can also be used as frameworks.
By some of the posters logic, I should be buttmad because Macross didnt taught me how to ride a transforming airplaine or to sang like min may in order to obliterate my enemies

This looks like rotoscoping. Not that I'm complaining, but the level of sakuga is insane for a series, this is the kind of stuff we can only get in OVAs.
Some /a/nons thinks that the concept of budget belongs in the realm of fantasy
Part of the appeal of SnB is due to the high levels of production allowed by the high budget it has.
In some of the China's stuff we can watch how much money they are pouring, It will be not long until we get a series with higher overall quality than any anime on that season.
You know, I HOPE this thing happens soon, so the japanese get their butts in gear and rekindle their passion for quality over quantity.

>>161820964
To be fair the first series had an incredible dance sequence as well. Both were most likely rotoscoped, but only as far as to properly map motion as the character designs, proportions and what not were all still on point despite the rotoscoping.

>being taught about a skills != displaying ability in said skill
3-Gatsu is character centric show wherein shogi moves aren't necessarily needed to be shown. This is mostly because teaching Shogi doesn't translate well into what the series presents itself and may even bog it down. Just imagine 3-Gatsu being presented like Akagi and tell me if it's still the same show.

Macross is a poor example too because it displays actual robot combat. Not people screaming how cool the fighting looks like. Don't even get me started on Nodame Cantabile on how well they presented the music that matches the show. And these two show actually strongly show what ballroom did wrong. One it doesn't display or give service towards the actions which the series relies on strongly (Dnacing) like Macross and second, it doesn't show immerse you in a ballroom environment unlike what Nodame Cantabile does with its orchestras.

I don't understand. Episode 5 was pretty fucking top tier. How can they fuck this up so bad? I hope the director just sucks at everything but high-blooded antics. So that he gives Chinatsu's adaptation justice.

>intricacies of the reaction and not the dance
You fucking dunce. Why not just play the manga on a voiced slideshow with sounds? Fucking kek. Also, the manga's point is showing the dance to impress readers and not the reaction of the in-universe spectators. The shaft-tier picture show isn't doing that any justice.

>Also, the manga's point is showing the dance to impress readers and not the reaction of the in-universe spectators.

the readers aren't expected to know how to react to the dance you fucking moron. just like every 'sports' anime/manga out there the reaction of the peanut gallery is supposed to tell the viewer/reader what to think about any given situation. if TMD were adapted to an anime would you critique them for not accurately displaying the inns and outs of heart surgery? did you have the same reactions to the lack of detail to the 'baking' in yakitate japan or the 'cooking' in shougeki souma? holy fucking shit

>>161820659
>>161828170
The problem is not teaching things, it's just they didn't use the animation medium to show actual dancing on an important scene like this. They're stuck with close-up shots and flashbacks.

Nodame did show actual music being played (even though it was always cut by some god awful character commentary).
Another anime that did it right recently was Hibike. They showed an actual orchestra performance in full without any cut or annoying character talking. And that was a very powerful scene.

Ballroom is a great manga, but i too was hoping for a fully animated dance scene with music matching. What's the point of animation if you don't do animation?
Mako's blooming scene could have been much more powerful. Well I still have hope for the quickstep variation.
>>
>>161829153
>readers aren't expected to know how to react to the dance
I'm sorry that you're too retarded to know how to react to anything and need someone to spoonfeed it for you. There we go again with the 'ins and outs' and 'details' bullshit I keep seeing people defend the adaptation. Now, I get your point. Sports anime does require reactions to help immerse you in the setting. But you're making a huge misunderstanding and a disservice to the author if you think her drawings have no intentions of showing off the dance. And only done to get people riled up with their reactions. This is especially the case for a movement filled sports anime. You keep setting up poor examples for comparison like TMD, Yakitate, and Cooking. Which are in theme sports anime but aren't necessarily one because of the lack of action and are extremely reliant on exaggerated reactions. Instead of more appropriate examples like Eyeshield 21, Slam Dunk, One outs and more action-oriented sports anime. Hell, you can even take Nodame as an example on how to immerse the audience within a high skill-based theme rather than overly relying on reactions like you presume.

You're a fucking idiot. The entire episode was VERBATIM to the 60 pages devoted to the dance in the manga. That's fucking right: the author spent page after page, double spread after double spread of single shot poses and internal monologue reactions of those watching it. 1 minute = 60 fucking pages. The episode was cut and paste. Moron.
>>
>>161824466
Eh~ I thought this was a 2-cour

>>161829627
Fucking kek. Are you seriously saying that the author had zero intentions of showing of the dance? Despite the limitations of her medium? And you think the director copy pasting a manga which is static medium in nature to the anime medium actually did a good thing? I don't know which one of us is the actually idiot here.

Chinatsu uses the form うち "uchi", which is a sort of playful, intimate first person way to refer somebody/thing to a third person.

うち の おかあさん Uchi no okaasan
わたし の おかあさん Watashi no okaasan

Are formally identical in "My mother." Except maybe a slight deviation in "Uchi no" being "A mother I/we own" and "Watashi no" being "A mother I have"

Uchi can also be used as plural without any additions. So the same
Uchi no okaasan = Our mother
Because you're talking as/for the whole family.

Long story short. It's "ours" because she's alluding to ownership with "uchi" but she isn't exactly being frank about it being just "her" who owns her, although she probably is talking about the two of them as a unit when she says "ours". Or then she isn't and means it as singular, where it would be "my".

Also, memes

The release is always around 6th. If there's a weekend there, it'll move to the next Monday. I'll post the translations here this time, instead of directly making a batoto release, as there's more of a crowd for the show currently.

Ballroom has good animators working on it, but the team has imposed a consistent drawing limit of 4000 frames per episode, which is very average. Hence, at best the show's good animation is delivered in short bursts. We don't know if this is to manage the production schedule over two seasons, having a conservative animation budget, or both.

I don't think it's just because of sexes, but it's more about height and frame.

He's not good at it because he hasn't been trained with it. It's the only reason he could do that sacrificial dance to elevate Mako because it would go against the grain of an experienced lead. It gave him a bad habit that wasn't easy to shake off.

Not 'steal' in NTR sense but in a plot device sense. Every partner change so far was done to broaden Tatara's horizons and make him a more versatile and experienced dancer. the next phase of his development will require a different partner.

More like your wishful thinking.
>>
>>161838251
No. I personally think mystery partner from chapter 1 is his Mom. I'm just saying that Tatara's development will likely see him cycle through different partners. He may even go back to Mako and Chii in turns as the plot progression demands
>>
>>161838306
>his Mom
Stop, this is getting ridiculous at this point. Dancing with your mom? Jesus Christ man.
>>
>>161811111
To be honest, without even getting into the actual work and budget needed to make a realistic animation of a full dance,
the concept of that dance is incredibly hard to translate into an actual dance.
The animators will need to request from a choreograph to invent an actual dance with the specific moves that Fujita knows that will make Mako "bloom".
That's a lot to ask in animation.

as far as I concern, >>161811720
has sated my needs for animation porn.

Also, I really love how Mako was dancing alone in the ED. Though I wish the background or her silhouette were golden-yellow.

I love how they matched Mako's dress with the painting and the dance floor.
>>
>>161838348
Just wait for the big reveal. His mom left him and his dad as a kid to pursue a dancing career in the west. This would explain Tatara's genius level body language interpretation skill. He's got the dancing gene. Working his way up to world championship where he partners with with his mom. It's fucking pottery.

What is wrong if Tatara is dancing with Shizuku in the first chapter? It could be because of some special event or something. As things are now I don't see her and Hyodo "break up" and I don't see why Tatara would be fine with that. Chinatsu herself thinks that Tatara is her last chance and the only one who can tolerate her. How could they switch partners? Unless she dies or something.

Chinatsu is the main female character. He wont switch to another girl. The author agrees don't bother her about it.

Feels like there partnership is supposed to parallel Sengoku and Hongou as well as the fact that the manga has been hyping up a "wild mare" like Chinatsu having a lot of potential, yada yada, since the partner is the one who decides the upper limit of what the couple can do, yada yada.

Around Kugimiya's introduction, I believe.

>>161837265
>>161837384
I think he's changing, though. Didn't he once think that he hated the music Chinatsu was listening to on their way back after camp, but then told her that he liked it? There's also the fact that he's been getting more easily irritable and pissed off, and Hyoudou being excited at seeing Takuto becoming more and more "twisted".

>>161837522
I think that's the entire point of what Hyoudou's mom was trying to teach Takuto. Trying to get him to be more like Kugumiya (in this one respect, at least). Hyoudou is doing the same thing too, actually, by making Takuto more and more frustrated and aggressive.

It's why Chinatsu was happy when Takuto "stopped caring about her" and just did what he wanted. Her challenge, though, is learning to be a proper follower for him.

I don't think Tatara has it in him to be Sengoku 2.0. He may be getting more confident, but I doubt he'll ever get to Sengoku's level of no giving any fucks. Chinatsu is definitely taking after Hongou though. It probably helps that she idolizes her.

Bahamut looks good and is generally very polished simply because MAPPA began animating it very early (for its standard, anyway). Funny thing, it was actually being animated at the same time as Yuuri. The main reason why some productions are good and some are bad is always time (and talent involved), money isn't really such an issue directly related to animation quality since animators get paid almost nothing anyway.

Who the fuck cares about animation? Man sakugafags are truly the scum of the anime industry. I care way more about close-ups of faces being on model than fluid animation.

>But anime is an animation medium

No, the reason why people like anime is for the stories and characters. Animation is a bonus. Also, most of the time it's just not feasible for a TV anime to offer the animation quality that sakugafucks are asking for. You should just scurry the fuck off to movies/OVAs if you're into anime for purely the animation.

If it was possible yes I would like constant dancing animation too. But it's not. There's no time, there's no money, there's not enough animators. You need to be real self-absorbed for you to keep demanding this season after season after season.

Loses what? She's Tatara's official partner. They even filled out the forms and everything. Unless you're referring to romance on the other hand.

And you don't think after showing us the first seconds of a routine we could go elsewhere and have more story bits woven in? Instead of having to sit there waiting for the sequence to end, again.

>by Kenji Miyamoto who's a big time FS choreographer, if you think skate-fags dropped the show after the first three episodes think again
Well good shit.
>>161856367
Ballroom apparently is also enjoying professional references. Skate-fags would've continued with the show regardless of what it was, just as ballet-fags have watched Tutu and ballroom-fags watch Ballroom. As long as the shit isn't completely offensive to the sport, they'll watch it just out of interest in how it's being portrayed. Apparently figure skating is full of fags, but I guess everybody knew that already so not much was learned there.

>the animation fucking shit the bed around the middle episodes, I give you that, but it at least had the balls to animate every single one of it's choreographed programs unlike Ballroom which pussies the fuck out and just show a hand fun of keyframes.
Ok, this is one argument I can't understand.
First of, hand animating multiple minute and half long dance sequences is a pipe-dream and even if they have the resources to do it, I don't think they should go for it.
If you go through the manga and compare it to the anime, you can see most of the keyframes as straight manga panels. Are you saying they shouldn't do that? Who is that in service of? The manga fans wanting to see the manga in action? New fans going back to read the manga after watching the anime? I imagine this would only be because of Yuris on ice setting a standard it itself couldn't uphold.

But that page refers to the All-England Championship finals, while the first time Tatara performed was the Mikasa Cup.

Great. The author is already in shit health, I wonder how long we'll have to wait to talk about anything then.

You know what, who cares. This is just going to lead to shitposting and endless arguing, and I'd rather not.

Just be patient man, and besides, following a on-going monthly manga series is like that, you need to have patient. It's going to take forever for this manga to be completed at this rate, I just hope they don't axe it. England is still a pipe-dream for our MC right now.
