That's a squirrel throwing a grenade into a skull full of Mike and Ikes
1. Funeral fro the big squirrel
2. She is probably burning the gifts/memories of the boy she had a crush on
I'm not a faggot with a broken computer but I wouldn't mind a download.
All those wasted designs for the other girls that only show up for one second and are really cute.
Well that's Yoshiyuki Tomino destroying the Earth
>Girl breaks up with her "boyfriend" then proceeds to ritualistically burn her memories under a bridge
>Directed by Tsurumaki
And this reminds you of Kyousogiga?
There are no SHAFT staff working on this
Hajime Ueda just happens to have provided designs for eds in the monogatari series. Also Tsuramaki is at khara. The only trigger guy is sushio on animation direction. Please stop being such a studio pleb.
That was quite good. I'm really loving the whole animator expo thing in general, wish there were more things like it more regularly. I really enjoy shorts, and I love all the collaboration between interesting groups of talent. The work produced seems to be so much more creative and interesting compared to TV anime, (obviously I guess, they are shorts done for recognition and industry cred rather than otaku pandering meant to sell BDs).
I agree with you in that the anon you quoted seems to just be throwing out a term he heard once, but I can sort of see some areas of resemblance or possible influence from Murakami Takeshi and co. in the art.
Then again I suppose you could say that about most anime post 2005 or so that uses an overtly 2D style, strange subject matter, and a bright color palette.
And since superflat artists often explore themes related to otaku the influence really goes in the other direction and saying that anime has a superflat look is rather silly.
That was pretty cool.
As much as I long for another series like FLCL I think thats over with. Your either going to get one offs or cours or full seasons these days.
Everybody's a damned critic. It had good animation, an interesting little story with a twist and a full on action sequence to top it off. Not bad for a short.
That's it? nothing is going to speak to me like ME!ME!ME! did
All those trash studios like beggars desperately hanging on Anime Expo, hoping to find some young animators and fool them to work on them.
You`ll never see KyoAni there, since they have own school and dont need to try such desperate (and useless, since Trigger/WIT/Madhouse animators that participated in their expo projects mostly quit) measures.
And it was glorious. Best short so far.
Based Trigger, based Imaichi.
The fuck are you even talking about? You really have no idea. Straight up talking out of you're ass. You are conflating animator expo, which is just about showcasing the work of talented animators and anime mirai which is a young animators training scheme and adding in an extra bit of misinformation that you have decided to wedge into yourweird little studio head canon .

No, you're exhibiting the exact kind of "I read Wikipedia this one time" misconceptions I was thinking of when I replied to the other guy.
Takashi Murakami & his friends have a pretty wide variety of art styles and I've never actually heard any of them call themselves "part of the Superflat movement" or whatever the fuck. He's gotten everyone from anime figure creator celebs (who were popular before their affiliation with Kaikai Kiki) to random Pixiv artists.
It seems to be like a misconception from US journos that Murakami sees "Superflat" as a "movement", because every time I've read his words it's simply a word he uses to describe the flat and stylized look that Japanese art has had since practically forever. To claim himself as the one who started "the Superflat movement" would be ridiculous and would go against the very meaning of the word.
Just watched it. This is definitely my favorite short so far.

It's made by Studio Khara you fuckwit.
Yeah I just saw that, I usually don't go to the site itself.
These are some really cute pajamas.
Looks like the aliens have Ikemeshium crystals stuck to the back of their phone.
So a story about a girl's friend being a two-faced bitch and stealing her crush is represented by alien squirrels fighting a fellow ship that rebelled and stole a carrier full of valuable crystals?
He did the original designs for Katanagatari.
He did and Abenobashi illustration back when the Gainax website was still fun.
Neat. But now I see these are just sample edits, so it still doesn't really get me what I needed.
I think it's more that they were both friends coveting the same boy (given that the two beast carriers were said to be allied and accompanying the crystal carrier) and black broke the peace treaty and took steps toward securing him.
Not everything needs to be a series. It's fine to make something with series-like potential into a short experience.
"The composition of vast books is a laborious and impoverishing extravagance. To go on for five hundred pages developing an idea whose perfect oral exposition is possible in a few minutes! A better course of procedure is to pretend that these books already exist, and then to offer a resume, a commentary." - Borges
God forbid anyone appreciate anime on an anime image board!
I really like the little squirrels but I'm just a sucker for military shit.
Probably because they were pissed at HQ for ordering them to stand down.
I can see making a 20-minute thing instead of a 5-minute music video but sometimes it's better to keep shit simple.
