>Have overtly simple character designs which would make animating them much easier
>Don't animate them beyond simple movements
At least anime can justify it's simple animation with incredibly strong art styles.
>>
>>94487079
See, the reasoning for this is pretty simple

>instead of making it good, why don't we just make it bad so we don't have to work as hard

You'll find that this formula gets applied to almost everything these days.

You can't appreciate minimalism?
>>
>>94487542
There's so many times in this show where they don't even animate a walk cycle and have the characters comically float from point A to B. There's only so many times you can do that joke before it stops being funny and starts being obvious it's to save time on animation.
>>
>>94487574
There's a fine line between minimalism and just being lazy.
>>
I don't have a problem with simple character designs at all, I actually prefer them when done right.
I just don't like O.K. KO's designs because they're just not very good. Everyone looks like a poorly drawn background character meant to blend into a crowd.
>>
>>94487608
Wrong, being lazy is also minimalism, it's just bad minimalism.

however i think the minimalism of OK KO is a good one

When will these repeats end?
>>
>>94487656
You are the one who doesn't know what minimalism is.

Simplistic animation + art style = minimalism
>>
>>94487608
Actually minimalism is just being lazy.
The fact that it got its own pretty gay name was only so that the fucking gay artist could sell their gay ass paintings for billions in their stupid ass money laudring bussines whitout raising more gay ass alarms.

Minimalism killed my parents.
>>
>>94487662
Animation everywhere but Europe is slave labor. Yet the entirety of anime manages to do much more with way more detailed designs than cartoons do with basically fucking potato designs. And yes, that's including the vast amount of moments in anime that are basically slideshows.

Castlevania is basically 50% static images and still looks better than most cartoons.
>>
>>94487662
Theoretically could one try to appeal to Trump's domestic business ideals and end South Korean exportation to create more animation jobs Stateside?
>>
>>94487686
>Actually minimalism is just being lazy.
You are wrong there. minimalism is a stylistic choice.

Listen how much minimalism can achieve:

Considering a lot of cartoons have still frames regardless of design with just lips flapping, they may as well have nice drawings to look at. Otherwise holding so long on scribble art just looks bad. Like pic related they kept cutting back to even though Steven never fucking moved.

Explain why most Titmouse shows look great and those are animated in-house.
>>
>>94487679
No, you fucking moron. Simplicity is not synonymous with minimalism. Minimalism is the idea of less being more. It's to remove virtually anything and everything that you'd consider to be a distraction or unnecessary in order to amplify the more important aspects. There is absolutely nothing about OK KO's art, animation or even narrative that is minimalist.

TURBO

Superjail

Even the shows that have really limited animation still have really nice art direction, like Moonbeam City and Hanazuki.

Minimalism applies to art, simplicity applies to both art and non-artistic things.

I didn't say it was bad, I said it "wasn't impressive". It's literally a character moving from point A to point B with like, an 8-frame turn around. There's virtually no stretch and squash aside from that one drawing during the spin-dash, there's no secondary action or follow through to really add to the movement, even the special effects are bland.

Doing a quick search to find a gif with similar movement, this is a lot more fun to look at and doesn't really do anything more technically astounding than the animation you posted.

>>94495912

minimalism when applied to art doesn't talk just about one style. it just means that it uses very little to achieve what it's supposed to achieve, which means many different styles can be used in a minimalistic way

You are right, simplicity and minimalism have different definitions.

But while minimalistic art can have a deep and profound meaning, it still relies on simplistic elements in order to create that art

That girl used to be hot in the pilot. First, they added a midriff for some reason (though, thats just personal preference I like the original costune better. But, then they just took all the volume from her arms and made her legs look more unusually fat than a Chun-Li type strong. Even with the dick looking nose, you can't tell me the original doesn't look better than this shit. It's like if a kid tried to draw the original design in a scrap paper and they made it the new design.

Chun-li's had very thick legs and somewhat slender arms since third strike, or at least when both nishimura and akiman exaggerated it more. Shut the fuck up, dude. But I agree, Enid's new design is really off looking. The shifts in animation/storyboarding quality doesn't help it become any less jarring.
>>94499061
You're missing the point, jackass.
>>
>>94499088
I don't get it. Does SU really have that much visual humor that not even some points can be scripted? He makes it sounds like this show is Superjail-tier "something is always moving that can't always be explained with just words" but its not. Its just some slow-paced fights and tame slapstick at best.
>>
>>94499309
Sorry you were so passionate about Chun-Li's legs, man. I guess an admittedly better way of discribing it is that it was more proportional. I think I kind of was just trying to pinpoint what was so wrong and that's it. The body parts just don't look like they fit with eachother.
>>
>>94499410
Like I said, I agree over how jarring Enid's new design looks. Whenever she's on screen its pretty distracting in terms of how bad it looks. And yes, thank you for acknowledging my passion in Chun-li's legs.

Now that I think about it, it's pretty weird.

I like how unhinged the show is whenever it goes off-model, but the designs are so unbelievably bland that I think they only did that to make it easy and cheap to animate so they can pump out multiple dozens of episodes. Laziness might also be a big part of it, but I won't be surprised if this show was as cheap as TTG.

In another unrelated note, I'm getting tired of the show placing Enid on a pedestal and how KO practically worships her.

that argument doesn't make sense. im not wrong for wanting shows to have consistently good animation. instead of spending the budget making one or two parts look great and the rest look like shit, why not just make less of a show but have more of it look good?
and yeah >>94487137 hits the nail on the head, but im criticizing the industry just as much as im criticizing ok ko.
quality control doesn't seem to be as prominent as quantity control

i really like OK KO because its the only show I end up watching like a stoic, in that i have absolutely no expectations for it to be good at all so it always ends up being nice when its decent.

Seriously, at this point overly animated looney tunes stuff can fuck off since nobody seems to be able to do it right anymore. I bet tons of animation studios could save a ton of money by limiting the budget, the amount of people working on it, and making the audience more niche. I bet those constraints would lead people to actually be forced into making creative shit.
