>>111215999 Because a lot of anime is exactly like that, having either lots of style and no substance or lots of substance and no style. It ultimately boils down to whether or not you want to watch something like LoGH, FMA, or GitS which are all fantastic stories that aren't super inspired art wise, or something like SZS, Kaiba, Nichijou, that has nice art but not a lot substance.
>>111216997 I like FMA's story but fucking hate its guts, the author knew the idea wouldn't have worked if she didn't pander to the shonen boy fangurlz. She's fucking brilliant for making such a marketable MC like Edward.
>>111217868 People are going to hate me for drawing the connection but Tatami Galaxy is a lot like Madoka Magica. To the people who watched it while it was airing its at least an 8/10 or greater. To everyone who watched it after hearing the hype it made they were disappointed.
It's like how people dont like the Harry Potter books and the Star Wars movies as much as they used to because spoilers and hype float around them thickly and the fans have already overanalyzed and discussed everything about them.
>>111218246 I watched both while they were airing. Madoka was a 6/10 on the first watch and a 6/10 on the second and third watch. Tatami Galaxy was an 10/10 on the first watch and an 11/10 on the second.
>>111216166 >>111218496 To a degree, I agree. Animation as an art for gives you a fuckton of freedom and I wish people took advantage of the tings they have to do something more than make their shows look as close to reality as possible.
because movies and TV are inherently a VISUAL medium. not to say one is more important than the other, but you can forgive a weak narrative if it looks nices, it's a lot harder to do it for the opposite
>>111219262 Not him, but it really depends on the person. However, denying the impact of execution in a story is retarded, there is a reason the most acclaimed novels prevail due to having excellent prose. Anime is an audiovisual medium, the way music and visuals are handled matter a whole lot, and I think that dismissing that fact is a sign that you should really try other medium.
>>111219262 >No you can't. yes you can, I won't limit myself to anime only but speed racer was a perfect example of "strong visuals", "weak narrative", and guess what, the movie was still very good I think it's a lot harder to find an "ugly" piece of work that overcomes this by great writing since if it's well written, it probably had a good director at the helm
>>111218996 The problem is the flawed notion that narrative constitutes any more 'substance' than the other aspects of the creative work. People are so eager to isolate the script from the actual product to evaluate it by itself, they end up forgetting that they're watching film.
Narrative is quite simply another facet of style, another form of communicating the ideas you have. It's no more weighty in an evualuation of animated films than visual and aural aspects.
