We're currently living in a second dark age of cartoons, maybe even worse than the 1970s and especially with the movies that have come out this year (Smurfs, Spark, The Emoji Movie, Rock Dog, Boss Baby and the upcoming films such as The Nut Job 2 and The Star) yes I can say that we are living in a second dark age of western animation in whch none of the better shows on now (Steven Universe, Star vs The Forces of Evil) can save us from this horrible dreck we're living in (Teen Titans Go, The Powerpuff Girls (2016), Bunsen Is Beast, Billey Dilley, Cloudy, The Mighty Magiswords and more)

Can we put aside the "muh nostalgiafags" meme for a while and legitimately recognize that decent cartoons and variety in airing have dropped significantly over time. Of course there's always been bad cartoons but overall there are just less good cartoons airing.

Billy Dilley and Magiswords are at least attempting to break out of the Flapjack aesthetic.

The internet and specifically tumblr and deviantart has ruined the community of professional animators. Most are truly awful people and have a completely different sense of humor and design philosophy than the animators of the 90's to the early 00's.

The whole community has become an inbred mess, everyone is aping eachother's style and they never learn how to draw anything different so nearly every show looks the same with minor differences.

The elephant in the room is that people who frequent cartoon forums tend not to agree with this, so the discussion is never made. People who still go to /co/ or cartoon reddits or whatever go there because they still think cartoons are at least good enough to keep discussing.

The 80% of people who either grew out of cartoons or grew into anime/older cartoons leave the modern fandom because all they talk about are SU and Star Vs and whatnot. So the echochamber continues and the studios assume we all want more of the same flapjack style millenial ironic/oh so random humor.

/a/ has its own problems with inbreeding, but luckily it has more skillful people in the field, a larger more dedicated fanbase and companies are willing to take risks, for every couple of shitty harem or LN adaptation we get something experiemental or different.

Why because cartoon girls like this are ugly and can't be moe waifus? give me a break Japanophile.
>>
>>94529232
TV Cartoons have been like this for a long time, but we did go through a small golden age in the 90's/early 00's.

I would argue the limited animation of the 60's and 70's building off the UPA/Walter Lantz aesthetic was still more visually appealing and timeless though. Stuff like Rocky and Bullwinkle and the Flintstones has way more universal appeal than TTG or SU.
>>
>>94529198

Cartoons are as good as they ever had been, is just that there is so few of them, The problem is that discussing cartoons on IB there will be always tons of people hating on them due to Anime, which is fucking stupid since cartoons and Anime are completely different things.

cartoons are supposed to be ugly, kiddy, comedic, etc. Anime is supposed to be cinematic, realistic and erotic as if it was a tv series but instead of using humans uses Animation.

When an anime is made in to a movie they can easily use people, When you make a liveaction-cartoon hybrid they are so alien they usually have to come from some magic portal or whatever.

>>94529325
You are just wrong, cartoons now have decreased in effort drastically in the animation department and the inbred design aesthetics of the 10's is ever present.

I'll agree with you on this point, western animation tends to be kinetic, frantic and surreal. The best western animation is usually utilizing the more flexible ideals in wacky and interesting ways (golden age Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, Ed Edd n Eddy, Cow and Chicken, Johnny Bravo etc).

Anime on the other hand is born from cost cutting measures. Typically they shun dynamic movement for beautiful individual shots (see 70's Dezaki for the introduction of this) and spurts of fluid animation that can be afforded due to frame modulation. Character designs tend to be more rigid and unflexible.

That isn't to say that each can't do the other well, Samurai Jack brought the more cinematic angle of anime into a minimalist artstyle, creating something visually unique. Likewise FLCL and to a lesser extent Urusei Yatsura or Golden Boy have taken notes from western animation and placed effort on specific facial animation and artstyle shifts for comedic effect, while still maintaining anime-like frame modulation and production value.

Ironically anime is becoming more and more dynamic because of CG and digital coloration, and modern cartoons are getting more and more rigid and consistent looking because of the studio systems and budget cuts.

That cartoon girls are ugly, and that is OK because they are cartoons they aren't overly erotic pin-ups like Anime girls are.

Sexualizing cartoon girls is a mistake, If I was a mod at /co/ I would delete every waifu-related post and every Anime-related post, to take this board to it's former glory.

Cartoons should remain cartoons, and if you don't agree, you never liked them in the first place.

can't be lower than the bar for eastern animation thats for sure. he anime industry is dealing with a plethora of problems at the moment , and one of the biggest hits hasnt been in animation quality, its been on writing.

The worst of anime is way worse than cartoons, but with so MANY anime coming out every year there are at least three or four shows a year that are WAAAAYYY better than millenial humor that we have now.

95% of American cartoons today are flapjack's artstyle with tweaks. This kind of monotony is not conducive to the ideals of western animation (flexibility, wackiness, unique facial animation etc)

Anime does have an inbreeding problem as well, but it isn't AS egregious because it doesn't contradict the design principles of anime (beautiful individual frames, more detailed "realistic" and solid construction of characters).

Because Anime characters aren't cartoons, they represent people, most anime characters from different anime could fit into each other's "universe", when are you going to understand that Anime in Japan is kind of a big deal? they use characters as if they were actors rather than Images or symbols. As an ideal visual representation of their reality.

Anime is super iterative, it's been copying itself for so long that it is hard to pinpoint an origin for modern design principles.

Many character designers are passed around from show to show, especially the super popular moe shows.

I'm not the biggest fan of 10's anime artstyle either (80's was the best) but, like I said, it isn't damaging to the design philosophy of anime, and there are SO MANY new shows every year, there is always something different to look at.

You're conflating genres and mediums buddy. Panty and Stocking, One Punch Man, and Ninja Slayer are definite examples of cartoony anime, while somewestern "Cartoons" such such as Archer or The Boondocks (though the latter is to a lesser extent) that could be portrayed easily in live action. Not all anime are the same. Just keep that that in mind.

Yes they are different, that doesn't mean they clash. This is why crossovers and cameos are more common in cartoons. Also if you think Panty and Stocking is an outlier you need to expand your knowledge of anime.

Those are mediocre and forgettable like the watered down kiddie drek CN was putting out with shows like Camp Lazlo Squirrel Boy and My Gym Partner's A Monkey
>>
>>94531292
>My Gym Partner's A Monkey
That show was patrician

That era never ended.

Where is this meme coming from? Cartoons nowadays are much better than they were decades ago. Despite their respective flaws, Adult Swim and Netflix are really going out of their way to save modern cartoons by giving the creators free reign to do what ever they want in their shows.

Teen Titans Go is good you faggots

If it wasn't being milked to death and wasn't about the teen Titans most of you would actually like it and recognize it as one of the more comedically creative shows to come out in recent years
>>
>>94532231

>Teen Titans Go is good you faggots

No. No, it is not.
>>
>>94530890
>anime isn't sexualized

Sure, and Megan Fox will win an oscar too.
>>
>>94532112
Such shitty taste. Cartoons are better now than say, 9 years ago, but not 20.
>>
>>94527703
Steven Universe isn't that good.
>>
>>94530568
And here I was thinking that HT was jerky animation as a visual gimmick comedy style, cutting corners Madagascar style.

I appreciate 2D. I love it, but often times CG looks better. The fact that it's cheaper to make is a bonus to the studio that's barely worth mentioning beyond the increase in content we get.
>>
>>94532466
CG isn't cheaper to make and it doesn't look better.

>her cartoon boobs are grey little letter c's
John K was right!
>>
>>94532501
John K is like 70% correct, but fails to take his own advice.
>>
>>94532489
>often times
Opinions aside, I thought it was generally accepted as cheaper. You even said it was assembly line and implied they can reuse resources.
>>
>>94532447
Lets face facts: Nobody wants to pay $200 for cable just to watch cartoons on television nowadays. It's much convenient to get what you need online.
>>
>>94532264
Give me one solid reason it isn't a good cartoon. You cannot say it's overplayed, or that it's a bastardization of teen Titans as a reason either.
>>
>>94532535
Assembly line doesn't mean cheaper, it just means there is no room for individual flair in a movement or model.

>>94532586
Streaming is the way of the future, doesn't change facts that cartoons today arn't very good (in general).
>>
>>94532606
Unlikable characters, humor that dates itself immediately, constant yelling, bad character designs

It's underrated but not good.
>>
>>94532688
>Unlikable characters
Hello mrEnter
>Humor that dates itself immediately
What do you mean by this?
>>
Teen Titans wasnt good, it was mediocre and forgettable, like The Loud House
>>
>>94532770
I agree the only reason it's cosidered good is that the fanbase is made mostly of pedos wanting to fuck underage girls
>>
>>94532737
I mean genuinely unlikable, as in grating, as in I don't want them in front of me.

Le Twerk waffles XD
>>
>>94532606
the art style is gross
the writing isn't very funny for a show that is trying to be funny
there is a tremendous amount of yelling for no reason
everyone on the show talks like a retard except for raven (not showing favoritism, just she's usually the straight man for the idiocy of the others)

Is that industry jargon for "off model"?
>>
>>94532918
Go watch live action if you want rigid and consistent visuals?
>>
>>94532951
Your opinion is shit and you should feel like shit
>>
>>94533033
Why even watch animation?

You're the audience for cheap canadian flash schlock huh
>>
>>94532951
Why are you like this? CG, 2D, live action, stop motion, they all work/don't work given the circumstances and execution of the subject matter.
>>
>>94533061
No, but Last Airbender was assembly line animation and it managed to not look like hot garbage and stay on model.
>>
>>94533064
Because the artform I love is stifled behind a sea of generic sameface crap. CG isn't impressive to me, flash is like CG but flat, traditional animation almost all has the flapjack/calarts sameface, and the writers are trying WAAAAAY too hard to appeal to children instead of making things they genuinely think are funny. There are a few decent shows but it's always despite something and most are trash.

>>94533103
Exception, it was anime inspired. Unless you think Avatar's aesthetics apply to most other American cartoons, thats a moot point.
>>
>>94533195
I don't think I can convince you anything is good because you'll find something to distract you from enjoyment. You're on a crusade against a medium. I hope you find what you're looking for.
>>
>>94531158
nobody got the joke because nobody watched ninja slayer sad

Plenty of things are good.

That's good! Please let me know what you like.

All edginess aside we probably ARE going through a dark phase.

But not everything is shit.
>>
>>94533776
Currently running, Clarence is good despite my issues with the MC, and Uncle Grandpa was funny enough.

Rick and Morty shows an upward trend on cartoon budgets and I have hopes hasbro will open the floodgates for 2D when barney prints money.

Other than that, anime is going alright, and there are a lot of shows for decades for me to explore while I wait this trend out.
>>
>>94533891
>liking Uncle Grandpa
>having problems with Clarence as an MC
How does that happen? And it's interesting that the person I've seen hate CG the most is also the only person I've communicated with who likes Uncle Grandpa. Is that because the show utilizes the medium is ways most shows stray from? Do you like Gumball?
>>
>>94528232
Here's your (You)
>>
>>94533953
Uncle Grandpa is creative and funny, clever gags. The characters arn't great.

Clarence makes me uncomfortable, like i'm watching a special needs kid, the actual show is awesome though and I can look past it.

Gumball is good in theory but they don't go far enough for me in the multi use of the medium, it had a slow start too I think it got better as it went on.
>>
>>94534039
I guess I need to give UG more of a chance. Thanks for explaining!

Clarence is a special needs kid as Uncle Grandpa is a special needs adult in my book, but yeah I can see where you're coming from.

And yeah, early Gumball isn't as good as current Gumball.
>>
>>94532810
No I mean the humor that dates itself
>>
>>94529502
That and most of the "Good" cartoons have gone mainstream, thus /co/ hates them. Either because "Reddit", "Political agenda", or our constant thread spamming.
>>
>>94530938
I already told you, stop using that idiotic term, it's virtually meaningless. It's simply the most visually appealing type of character design.
>>
>>94532801
>TEEN Titans
Something's not right here... unless you live in the US, I guess.
>>
>>94534807

So you are saying everything would be better if it looked like Anime? then they would not be cartoons, I like my cartoon girls ugly.
