In 3 days Trigger will save anime
How much budget will they save this time?
Did you even watch the PVs? None of the footage they showed had the ugly Flash-like tweening they used in Kill La Kill and the beach episode of Panty & Stocking. It's all Kanada-style motion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6RlxLq8-6k
I understand being bothered by the coloring since it's very different and bizarre but the atcual animation looks fine.
If you don't like Kanada-motion, you aren't gonna like anything from Dead Leaves to Kill La Kill that isn't Little Witch Academia.
I didn't like the colors in PV1 but it seems more purposeful now that I got a better look at what they're doing. The setting is a dark urban one with bright, contrasting neons, and the characters are also dark with contrasting super-bright highlights.
That said, one thing I'm not a fan of is the decision to give each character their unique highlight color. It means they won't get to mess with the color schemes too much from scene to scene because Ninja Slayer's highlights will ALWAYS be green. Yamoto's highlights will ALWAYS be light purple/pink.
Unless they actually aim to drop that for specific scenes, which would be a good decision.
>looks jerkier than zambot 3 from 1977
So this... is the power of kanada animation... wow.....
What a boring philosophy.
http://sakuga.yshi.org/post/show/5991/animated-effects-fighting-flcl-keisuke_watabe-smok look at this horrible animation, disney's nine old men must be shitting blood in their graves!
>Maybe 2D will still be alive worldwide if it was.
I appreciate that movie and Richard Williams, but "THIS MOVIE WOULD HAVE SAVED 2D ANIMATION" is a pretty delusional thing to say and his 'muh fluidity' philosophy is very artistically limiting.
People don't watch cartoons to jack off over the "objectively best" technique.
It's not inherently good nor bad.
Honestly, emphasizing that something is Kanada style seems a bit redundant since pretty much most action anime are based on Kanada-style of animation.
Who cares? Classic Disney films are very impressive and fun to watch, but their soccer mom-friendly design, sense of acting and focus on 'muh fluidity' should not be viewed as some absolute "objective best quality" to strive for.
FLCL is instantly viewed as well-animated by practically everyone these days, from normal viewers to the most autistic and obsessive of critics like John K. And it's full of "jerky, objectively bad" animation by the standards you're samefagging ITT.
Kanada was hugely influential and you can see his traces in most anime action animation, but the stuff that people like Imaishi, Amemiya and Keisuke Watabe do is far closer in style to old-school Kanada works than most things.
If you want high budgets and fluidity there's plenty of stuff to watch that's much better than anime, even the most high-budget anime.
I for one think it's really interesting to see artists do interesting things with low budgets. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uQYo-7ozWA Here's one of those super-cheap 60s cartoon shows that actually has fun with how limited it is and is therefore more fun to watch than Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines or whatever the fuck.
I think it's fine in the hands of Imaishi and the like ,but there are definitely animators who fail at it. Like Jun Arai https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fonv0BpUnSo Yes the shading is cool but the animation itself is always fucking horrible
His stuff isn't as interesting to watch as the work of people like Imaishi and Watabe, but yeah, he's hardly bad. He also has more than enough experience from stuff like Gurren Lagann and Kill La Kill to be able to make a concept as simple as this work well. Episodes like Kill La Kill episode 3 and Gurren Lagann episode 7 were well-executed, fun action and that's all you need to be able to do in an adaptation like Ninja Slayer.
The way the anon ITT is talking about him it sounds like he's referring more to a particularly wonky Jun Arai sequence.
>An Arai directed anime would certainly be much more interesting than anything Amemiya
come on dude
did Amemiya kill and rape your parents or something
True, but Kameda is REALLY good.
You have no idea what "flash" even means when you say it, you're really blatantly just spouting buzzwords.
If you think PVs are traditionally well-made and always show the highlights you're kind of a newfag anyway. The first Kill La Kill PV didn't show the really good scenes from episode 1 either, mostly the middling stuff; the second one highlighted the better parts. The first Panty & Stocking PV was garbage, and the TV commercials that came out later were much better at actually showing off the animation. Gurren Lagann's episode 1 PV didn't showcase the best scenes from it either.
Ninja Slayer is similar; the second PV has more good motion than the first.
Yes but is he dead or something? Haven't seen him since the Gargantia finale
>Since when can Arai do FX? He animates explosions just like everything else with the same timing and style.
Yes and? When it fit the show, it's great.
Too bad there isn't enough anime like Needless.
Are you using the handful of tweened scenes in his Parallel Works short to judge his entire style? Cuz he normally doesn't even do that at all, it was an experimental thing for that one shotr.
Or are you just going for a really, really bizarre troll gimmick by going after a completely inoffensive animator who's not even a big name in the least?
But (assuming you're the person who said only his explosions and robots were good) if you like his fx then why not his other stuff? It's basically the same.
To me it seems random if he messes up his cuts and not dependent on what he draws.
Kameda was AD on a Space Dandy episode and did key animation for the finale. His latest work was one cut in the Death Parade OP. He's probably working on the One-Punch Man anime now.
If he's not tweening, his cuts with terribly low number of frames and low details with next to no actual movements are horrible either way. How can anyone defend him? Jesus Christ
"Flash shit" is just such a terrible way of wording it that it sounds like you're trolling, but I can't help but wonder why because no one views Amemiya as their animation hero or something.
IT'S A MAN!!!!!!!!!
This show was great
A lot of modern anime has annoying washed-out colors and while what NS is doing isn't perfect, I definitely see it as a step forward from the washed out bland palette of a lot of shows.
What am I looking at?
Confrontation of reuse of the same scene between episodes?
Or is it between show on air on tv and dvd?
If it's the former, I don't think it's such a bad practice. If there is the same thing going on, while not shave the budget there to use the money to give better animation at other more important scenes.
If it's the latter, well, it still managed to be watchable while airing, and with the dvd they did an even better job, so nothing to complain about.
Some people find this strange but Boris is on a major label now and make some kind pop music. It's just Avex who promotes their bands through anime. I think their music was in some video game too.
There's a new one with far more lively animation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6RlxLq8-6k [Embed] so if by "hentai" you mean Cream Lemon-type stuff that had bits of lively non-porn action animation then you'd be right but I know that's not what you mean
Expecting this to be a Panty & Stocking thing where everyone bitches about it but starts liking it when the series actually starts.
"LOL TRIGGER NIGGER LEGENDARILY LOW BUDGET BAD ANIMATION NO MOVEMENT MORE LIKE SLIDESHOW" is practically a meme opinion, this has way better movement than """well animated""" action shows like Hellsing Ultimate that don't get half as much shit.
actually wait, I'm listening to some songs from their 2014 album Noise and none of them sound as "Bleach OP-core" as that one really poppy album they did which was probably jokey
>People don't watch cartoons to jack off over the "objectively best" technique.
Exactly it is just like music, nobody thinks the person playing the impossibly technically difficult solo is making the best music and only listens to that kind of music while thinking all other types of music are shit.
