Give me one reason why this anime is not a 10/10. (protip: you can't)
>inb4 fgts saying animation is bad when it is actually a good example of minimalism and unique art
I bet you are one of those idiots who think KnB and Diamond No Ace are good examples of sport anime. It looks to me like you missed the whole point of the entire show. It is not about the sport, it is rather about the characters and how each of them sends a message to the audience.
>implying it's not just an excuse to save money
Because 10/10 are only supposed to be reserved to an anime with zero flaws, and I don't think such a thing has been made yet. I give this show a 9.1 though.
I think some of Yuasa's better works are 10/10. Some are 5/10, though. and Ping Pong wasn't even that great. For some reason I think people think so highly of it because it has different artstyle. It it had a more generic style I bet no one would give that much of a shit about it.
I like Yuasa, but 9 is about as high as I'd go for him, and that's only reserved for Mind Game. 8 already denotes excellence for me, and that's what I'd give Ping Pong, though I prefer the manga over the anime.
Nah, there's a few anime that deserve that rating in my opinion and I'm a big Yuasa fan. Mind Game and Tatami deserve that in my opinion, but nothing else from his works
Sure but you can't compare seeing a moeblob cry with huge streams of tears down her face next something that looks a little more realistic
To call it a defence reveals your presumption that a sports anime has an obligation to focus on the sport and to fail to do that is akin to failing as a work. Ping Pong affords greater focus to its characters and uses the sport as a platform for the interaction between these characters. To say that this is a flaw is telling of your presumptions about the show that skew your interpretation. You don't see if for what it is and instead you see it for a failure of what you expected it to be.
Only LOGH so far. It's a rarity to see an anime that deserves even a nine, even LOGH has its noticeable flaws.
>9 is about as high as I'd go for him, and that's only reserved for Mind Game.
I would also go with Tatami there, personal opinion. Kaiba, not too sure, the first half fuels my fond memories of it.
10/10 is not supposed to be perfection, it's a score given to the X% best anime. 3% is usually considered a good number.
It's utterly stupid to have a rating scale when you just refuse to use most of it.
>10/10 is not supposed to be perfection
>10/10 is not supposed to be perfection, it's a score given to the X% best anime.
I actually covered that, you share no new information here.
>3% is usually considered a good number.
Had it there before reevaluating a couple of things. Who cares what percentage people consider a good number? That depends on how much you've actually seen in total.
It's just common sense. If 10/10 was perfection, every anime would be 0/10, cause nothing human-made could even come close.
So scores should be relative to the worst and best anime that exist, which mark the two ends of the scale.
The rest of the scores should be weighted so that the ratings of all existing anime describe a Gauss curve (with the maximum in the center of the scale, obviously).
you're completely missing the point. Some people find it disgusting. ok
Some people find it charming. I, personally like the colouring. It's refreshing, interesting to look at and contributes to the atmosphere of the show.
Regardless you're missing the point. How deluded do you have to believe anyone, even on /a/, would praise a show so highly solely on something so shallow as its cover?
It was very good, without a doubt the best show of 2014 when everything else is so mediocre it just makes you appreciate something that's at least good way more than usual. However, it isn't a masterpiece but still a thrilling watch with a great cast of characters. 8.5/10.
Poor story/character development. China man was #1 wasted story potential. Art style was grotesque, however, the animation was incredible, along with OST. At best 9/10, realistically, 8/10.
>cliched shounenshit sports story
>uglier than the shit I drew in kindergarten
>mediocre voice acting and unmemorable soundtrack
>shallow, cliched characters with shonenshit-cliche development
If I wanted to make a predictable, unoriginal show for hipsters about terribly drawn chinks playing gay tennis for people too unathletic to run, I wouldn't because it would be SHIT.
If Yuasa animated his own defecations a substantial portion of /a/ would circlejerk over it.
Reminder that Kong was the best character
It's an American sports movie with Japanese art. It's good, the OST is especially praiseworthy (and the ED is GOAT), and the animation is cool, but ultimately it's not any kind of masterpiece. Just watch any American sports story and you'll see that this is exactly the same.
It's a solid 7 or 8/10.
>if you weren't born with talent you're not getting anywhere, even if you work yourself to death
The thing is, this is actually true re: some, but not all professions. This is actually true re: individual sports, specifically as opposed to team sports. You're never going to be the world champion of an individual sport without talent, but through hard work you can definitely rise to the top of a team sport with underwhelming talent. An example who comes to mind is the recently retired Steve Nash. Usually the littlest dude on the court, usually the slowest dude on the court, usually the weakest dude on the court in terms of physical strength. Two-time MVP.
>implying I'm not on the talented side
Well shit, now that I think about it, I guess the ultimate example is Joe Montana. Weak arm. At the quarterback position. Widely considered the greatest QB in the history of the sport.
You'll never see someone with a low IQ be the world chess champion.
