Because songs in Disney are based on musical theater.

Songs in anime are based on actual music.
>>
Why can't disney come up with an original story and animate without rotoscope?

Oh oh...
>>
>>100019949
You're saying that like it's something bad. Plenty of movies are based of something else and rotoscoping has been around forever, is a big time saver and if done right it can look amazing.

In any case "I won't say I'm in love" is a fucking underrated Disney song.

Disney is one of the few studios that actually do it right. Your bad experiences with low budget anime shit and rotoscoping can't dismiss an entire technique.

macross is fantastic, but it's also 30 years old by now

More like the 2D animation industry just died and they moved onto something else.

If you're gonna draw comparisons over animation, do it with their old stuff, otherwise it's irrelevant at least in this context.

>>100020388
I know this is a bait thread, but what the hell. speaking as an animator here.
Rotoscoping simply doesn't scale well across different budgets and production schedules, and furthermore is only applicable to a very specific squash-stretch style of animating. Disney is a huge business, and thus has ironclad, centralized control over their own budgets, scheduling, and style. In contrast, anime production is a much more diffused process spread across multiple studios (incidentally, one of the major reasons why licensing anime for Western publishing is more of a pain in the ass than you'd think it would be). Furthermore, the stylistic cues of anime have their roots in static manga, thus relying on quick shifts between locked poses instead of squash and stretch.
The Disney production style is an exercise in centralized individual excess, while the anime production style is an exercise in diffused group minimalism. Rotoscoping is well suited to the former, but ill fits the latter.

Actually, now that I think about it, why aren't there any anime musicals? Or even musical episodes?

Is it the xenophobia thing? Which means they'd never try a different approach to the songs, and instead stick with jpop?

(I just remembered, Excel Saga joked about a small musical segment. But you would think someone would have done it for real by now.)

One of the things that was really nice about the older Disney movies, at least pertaining to the music, compared to, say, this >>100021563 is that older shit tended to have really good theming. The movies would do a great job of creating a consistent idea or mood throughout the whole movie with its music, like Hercules with the gospel mixing or, say, the jungle book, Lion King, or Hunchback.

More recently, it's just getting to be the same generic pop music in every flick. Not that they don't sound good, but they don't have as much character as the themed songs.
