At my college/university we have an anime club. I was a member for a while. The last thing I'll say about that is quality is cyclical like an economic boom and bust cycle.The adviser however formed a separate discussion group[whose name won't be divulged as I'd prefer to be as anon as possible] with the purpose of discussing the anime we watched in depth.I'd like for us to try something like that on /bun/ because I think it would be interesting (maybe archive worthy) and because I'm lonely having no one to have long anime discussions with.Just to clear this up,this isn't the place for one liners.At he very least give a thorough explanation why you feel the way you do.It can be a single anime or a body of work.

To start us off:
>Studio Ghibli/Miyazaki

I enjoy the films of Miyazaki and don't feel like critics of film give him due recognition because his chosen medium is animation.
That said, If I had to pick one word to describe Miyazaki,it would be style.His technical skill in animation is phenomenal.The level of detail he brings to every frame is incredible.Examples I can think of are the city streets from Howl's Moving Castle and the bathhouse floor from Spirited away.His creativity also seems to stem from his style.Howl's Castle is by far the best example as he far exceeded the original novel. In the novel Howl's Castle is described as being made of huge charcoal stones held together by magic. Miyazaki turns Howl's Castle into a whimsical character with odd tendencies all it's own that over the film give the castle an identity.He also makes it more visually appealing using materials such as wood and brass suggesting a life of moderate comfort in the unbounded freedom the castle provides.

>MSG isn't in any way entry level. The animation aged badly and the franchise is far too big for anyone who isn't already into robots, nevermind not already being into anime.
I'll concede the franchise being large, although I think it's worth watching 79 even without the intent to watch further parts. However, I have a pretty big problem with saying that the animation aged badly (other than that I disagree). The human eye has not evolved so much since then. People just like you and me could watch old animation and enjoy it in the past, and they can do the same now, provided they are the sort of people who would enjoy it. I don't think it's important to watch old stuff just because it's old, like trying to watch the original Astro Boy or something, but there are old anime that people should watch if they are at all interested in anime.

>As for Yamato, it has a shorter (and prettier, some would say) remake, so...
Space Battleship Yamato (1974) was 26 episodes. Space Battleship 2199 (2012) adapted this original first season and was 26 episodes and a movie. I may be missing something, but I'm not sure what to place after that ellipsis.

>If you really want to show older animation for newcomers, it'd be better to start with OVAs I think.
I can agree with you here that OVAs are a good into anime in general, but there aren't really many OVAs before the mid-eighties.
>> No.49060  
>recycled animation out the ass
>every motion is either slow, frame-moved or drawn as a blur to compensate
Look, there's a lot to 79 that was really evolutionary for its time (and the gimmick with the name is really fun too), but none of it was in the animations. It becomes especially painful if you compare the original TV run to something like CCA/0080/83/8th MS where they had a much bigger budget. It's obviously not a fair comparison to compare OVAs to 52 episode TV series, but that doesn't make watching 79 any more pleasant on the eye.

>The human eye has not evolved so much since then.
But the average human's brain has adapted to better animation since then. You could use that argument for special effects in movies and realize how ridiculous the notion is: Just because our eyes haven't physically changed doesn't make King Kong (1933) or Godzilla (1954) any less unconvincing to modern viewers. We've grown used to distinguishing good special effects from bad special effects, and as such cannot look at them the same way their original audiences did.
>> No.49091  
It's not surprising that an argument someone made for one thing falls apart when applied to something different.
>> No.49093  
I don't think the example is so far from Gundam's problem. Look at the post above that one. 0079's animation is most certainly not one of its strong points, and while newcomers to anime might not be sakugafags or even really care about animation quality on a conscious level, it's still bad enough they're probably going to go "wow this looks old". Not because of the designs, which do look aged (but not in a negative way, like how a lot of late 90s/early 2000s shows do, looking at you Saber Marionette J), but because of how cheap the animation looks at times.

There are better parts in this franchise for an anime newcomer to start, but I really dislike the idea of not watching Gundam chronologically.

My problem is that the show couldn't decide on a consistent tone. Like I already said in the Winter 2013 thread.
>It's a good thing they serious'd it up but they could have paced it better. It's like they flipped a switch from funny slapfights and hijinks to gritty, no-holds-barred combat.
Did they at least go through with Odins betrayal, their flashback melodrama and characters dying? No, instead we go back again, surprise marriage between enemies, have doofus knock down armed troops with a flyswatter through their helmets and we forgive Gasmask#2 for his treason. But worry not, he didn't escape unscathed. He doesn't get dinner for a week as punishment. How funny!

Rising's last arc is a part of Ippo's manga that I am particularly fond of, and thankfully it was handled beautifully. I'm really glad Satoshi Nishimura came back to direct these episodes. Sadly, the rest of this third season was disappointing. I tried overlooking the things they changed and skipped, because I really wanted to enjoy it. I waited a long time for this! Sadly it came to a point where every episode would leave me wondering why they made certain decisions. After New Challenger and Rising, I think I'm satisfied. There are more fights I'd like to see animated but it doesn't seem like Madhouse can bring back together a team capable of handling this manga.

Kenji Utsumi, Ichiro Nagai, Seizou Katou, thank you for the good memories, rest in peace.

Also finished Kill la Kill, mediocre from beginning to end.


Last episode was a good source of laughter for me. Good show, I struggled through Flamrangers but enjoyed most of it.

I probably would have enjoyed Samumenco a lot more if I was more familiar with toku. More than being full of random twists, it felt like they wanted to explore every take on the genre, but since I'm so ignorant of it I can't really say. Perhaps it'd be good to rewatch it after I immerse myself in the world of toku.

So if its belonging enough for ballistic combat, it willingly right impersonate good enough for us everyday non-combantants. Oakley erect is second to none and to further lock up its stamp as a leading brand, Oakley has even integrated bluetooth technology from Motorola into its sunglasses on the RAZRWIRE Bluetooth Eyewear model.

What's the difference?
>> No.48206  

the new stages introduce new main characters (who are promptly forgotten after the movie ends, even between the new stage movies) and have all of the cures that show up mostly be side characters.

Note that I have no issue with that premise, but the execution is terrible; I really don't enjoy sitting through 45 mins. of the writers introducing and attempting to flesh out a new set of characters when it's done so half-assed when the only enjoyable section is the last 15 mins where the cures show up, deliver 1-2 lines each (if any) and then go through the motions of their combo attacks and big finale group mega combination attack.

The DX series is enjoyable because it is just the cures (who each have 1 full year of character development under their belts) interacting with each other in entertaining ways, with perhaps 5-15 mins of fleshing out the big bad so the movie would have a plot.
And with DX 3, the writers executed it flawlessly to the point where it is tied for best precure movie to date.

Well, shit. I'll eat my own words there.
Not saying that alone means the movie will be good, but it's hopefully not going to be as bad as the other two new stages.
