Let's play the random OELVN game again, /bun/.

1. Visit http://bunbunmaru.com/misc/renai-rand.pl to get a random visual novel from renai.us.
2. Read it, no matter how bad it sounds.
3. Share your thoughts!

Last time we had some beautiful diamonds in the rough, like Cassiopeia (best visual novel ever imo). I wonder what will turn up this time?

Don't draw.
Use MMD and steal models from deviantart. Bonus points if said models have watermarks on them.
Use Print Screen to move the 3d environment into a still picture for the VN. Claim everything was drawn by yourself and all IP related to the characters belong to you solely.

but being endearing with a lovably unique art style is a positive thing.

If he's trying for a spectacular sort of bad, it needs to have no redeeming qualities... from the dubstep soundtrack that no way in hell matches the mood of the story to the shitty visuals, it must all be horrifically bad, but in such a way that it's not a troll attempt and the person doesn't NOPE!uninstall and sit through the entire 2-3 hours of OLEV~N.

Wow. This episode had it all. Characters getting mauled, Eren/Mikasa going ballistic, QUALITY and a TWEEST.

Reviving the VN thread: anything VN related goes.

After having finished ML series right after reading through Muramasa, I decided to change the pace and started reading LOVELY x C^TION. The "datesim" part's implementation is underwhelming. Can't really say much about the story since I just started reading it a few hours ago, but I'm already in love with Amagase. Moe overload

if you were put off to the point you dropped the show before 3 eps, chances are it's not a show you would enjoy watching regardless

But, it does get a bit better; still the same type of humor, but more characters and different interactions.

So I had a thought, in Part 3, the goal was to save Holy by defeating DIO and retroactively removing her Stand, right?

So how come Star Platinum, Hermit Purple, and Crazy Diamond (and maybe DIO's sons, but I can't remember if theirs was from Pucci's discs) exist in Part 4 onwards? I'm almost certain they weren't pierced by the arrow.

And I can't remember if we ever see Holy ever again or if we even got any confirmation that she got better, so did she died?

Yeah, I've never really cared for short anime, but there are some really interesting ones among the trash. I think it's the short format that allows Gdgd to shine. The show actually bombs frequently, but it only dwells for a couple seconds on each gag before it moves on to the next one. The way it used referential humor also surprised me. I've always looked at reference jokes as very lazy comedy, but Gdgd fairies use them in an incredibly creative way. My favourite thing about the show though, is how unpredictable it is. While there are specific 'corners' to the show, similar to a Japanese variety show, you never know what you're going to get with each episode and I wish the anime industry would do more stuff like this, instead of cranking out shameless 4koma adaptions.

By the way, after I finished Gdgd fairies I checked around if there were any shows similar to it, and I found two more.
Straight Title Robot Anime is partially ad-libbed in a way similar to Gdgd Fairies, but I honestly found it kinda boring.
Peeping Life is a series of completely ad-libbed sketches. The sketches are a lot slower, longer and much more grounded in reality than Gdgd, but I thought it was pretty funny.
>> No.45383  
There are good and bad short shows, but I always feel good when watching them because amateur studios seem to have fresh ideas and style. Ai Mai Mi, Teekyuu, Boku no Imouto wa Osaka-okan, Senyuu. are all pretty fresh, although probably not for everyone.
>> No.45385  
I thought Teekyuu was great, Osaka-momma and Mangirl were horribad (though their titles make them sound kinda cool) and I also watched Ishida and Asakura and it was absolute shit. I've yet to watch Senyuu.
Imo, there's a much larger fluctuation in quality for short shows, and also a lower good to bad ratio, but on the flipside, each episode lasts from 30 seconds to 10 minutes so it's not like you're committing to anything.

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.

It's not surprising that an argument someone made for one thing falls apart when applied to something different.

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.
