Here's a DL link to KyoAni + AniDo's Chuu2 creator's message book that I wanted to share. It's a compilation of illustrations drawn by the staff and probably of interest for fellow KyoAnifags.
Feel free to dump the pictures ITT or use this as a general KyoAni thread if you want.
Was there anything else you were going to scan/had scanned, if you're the guy from yesterday? Vaguely recalling.
Next is Kyoukai's message book.
There are a lot of Deko drawings, the staff must really love her.
Did you get anything before aside from the Free! scans?
Yeah, but all of those already have good scans on Minitokyo, so I didn't bother.
Are there any scans of the K-ON message book? If not, then I can scan that too if anyone wants me to.
Post Shinka please.
The ass is fat.
I'd tap that catastrophe.
I still can't believe it when I found out she was an anime-original character.
OTOH Touka was anime-original too.
This one I mean. I haven't actively looked for them, so I don't know if there are scans already.
There should be, it's a really popular series, so. But I haven't seen them either
And Kumin, and Kuzuha.
But those aren’t terrible, just bland
We Monster Hunter now?
But she isn't.
Never doubt KyoAni.
Does anyone know how the LN authors of Chu2Koi and KyoKana felt about the very liberal adaptations?
Stop using rar you shit.
She is. She doesn't appear in the LNs.
>he doesn't use Manga Meeya
Serves you right faggot.
>loving a small girl
Please, PLEASE. No, they don't. Not at all.
They have drawings of her because she's an original character, but it's obvious they hate her on her own.
Now if they used this style in the anime, I wouldn't call them otaku hater scum.
They probably don't care because they got their money.
Fuck that shit, I'm not a masochist.
>liking small girls
Pick one, and only one.
I mean the IP is owned by KyoAni so they can decide what they want to do with the franchise, right? Like taking the LN series and giving it to another writer?
Use Gwenview or Comix
>the IP is owned by KyoAni so they can decide what they want to do with the franchise, right?
Yeah, pretty much.
IDK how I would feel about that as a writer.
Don't be retarded, they don't decompress rar any better than mcomix or 7z and neither of those work.
It's not like the LNs are good or anything. KyoAni improved them a lot with the anime adaptations.
Works for me.
LNs have kisses.
They might finally show a Rikka/Yuuta kissu in Ren.
>implying they will
S-shut up, KyoAni will find a way.
Wait, what the fuck? The majority of my favourite characters are anime-original? Jesus its Yumekui Merry all over again, now I feel bad.
So wait, how many characters are in the original light novels then? Literally Yuuta, Nibutani, Rikka and the new girl? Doesn't that make the anime like completely different from the novels?
>doesn't use windows
>complains when content is made for the vast majority of computer users instead of himself
You okay? Looks like you missed a lot.
Isshki, Yumeha. There are some classmates who are more prominent, like Kannagi - girl in the center. Most characters also have somewhat or completely different personalities, even Rikka.
Yes on all accounts.
Kyoto Animation took a mediocre source material and turned it into something award-winning.
Let's not exaggerate.
>and turned it into something award-winning.
Shut it already, newfound Kyoani fag.
I get it you idolize them for Free!, but saying this when you clearly don't even know the novels is ridiculous.
Have you read the LNs?
This is for your freedom but 4chan thinks it's spam. http waa.ai PpP
And now I just realised I could have just broken up the original link like that, making it look slightly less suspicious.
/g/ faggots pls.
Thanks. I already used my Windows VM to decompress though.
If you’re ok with using non-free software, then why not just install unrar-nonfree?
does mega not work in firefox or what?
it just stopped at 100% for me
I think you might have to increase local storage.
Oh it finally finished
Looking forward to the Kyoukai and maybe Keion scans
I'll scan the K-ON ones as well then.
Will create another thread when I am done, but it might take a while because I want to do the Kyoukai one first.
Take your time
That reminds me, I hope this Tamako book's binding isn't a bitch, I want to scan pic related, too.
But KyoAni needs to hurry up and let me preorder it first.
I wish I had money to buyfag too.
TIL I draw well enough to be an animator at KyoAni.
But can you animate well enough?
But isn't this book just text?
It's the same thing as the Chuu2 one (drawings by the staff).
We'll gladly take you for a ride over at /ic/ :^)
Fuck yeah Ishidate.
Post Horiguchi's page please.
right: Nobuaki Maruki
Thanks, I love both of their art styles.
The dragon looks awesome.
It's a shame that it's CGI in the movie.
Who drew the dragon? Looks great indeed.
And this one is by Shimpei Sawa.
It's the usual troll, see also >>100035746
Since Free!, it's pretty standard to do the "KyoAni only caters to fujoshi!!" routine, no matter how retarded it is. Or better, especially because it's retarded, as it generates the attention (replies) they crave.
It's in the movie?
Is Sawa the guy who did mecha designs for the Chuuni BD shorts?
The LN sounded pretty mediocre, bordering on stupid (mom showing up out of nothing and one-shooting the Hollow Shadow, Mirai and Aki just meeting coincidentally), whereas the anime story was pretty complex and much more refined.
Sawa designed the dragon too, apparently.
It's a business. If the writer has any experience and is not an idealistic fanfic writer who can go MUH ARTISTIC INTEGRITY all day long because he won't sell anything anyway, he will of course strike a good deal with KyoAni and work together with them. Nobody forces him to sign a contract, if he wants to keep full control, he can go and search for a company that let's him have that. Usually, if you're a beginner in the business, this will not happen. You gotta work your way up, earn a reputation and gradually, you can ask for more leverage. Or you write a massive hit that leaves producers begging at your doorstep. One of those is more likely than the other.
Where the fuck were you last year? It's common knowledge.
Not on /a/, obviously. Fuck off back to where you came from.
I'm quite curious about this. KnK had a more darker feeling as compared to the anime.
I guess they wanted to make it accessible to more audiences.
Seriously though. KyoAni ought to learn from KnK. They really had problems with it. You can tell that they consulted the LN author for checking discrepancies. However KyoAni adapting a volume of an LN that has plot really bogged it down. They were really stretching as far as they could while trying not to break the most important essence of what the next volume/future material will have. IMO if they went FMA(first TV release) on this KnK would have progressed a lot better.
They should really wait for more volumes if it's plot based material.
Chu2koi was different. They could completely go all out with the changes and it would still arrive at the same thing. It wasn't that hard to write around.
>Chu2koi was different. They could completely go all out with the changes and it would still arrive at the same thing. It wasn't that hard to write around.
Well, writing a romcom SoL LN plot seems easier than Kyoukai's supernatural one.
>They were really stretching as far as they could
That does explain why the final episodes of KNK feel a lot better than the middle parts
I think it's because the final episodes were planned as the finale, and they had to stretch everything else out to get to that point for the end.
Imagine if the end was closer to the middle. What would they have done after it?
Well the anime successfully implied that Mirai could be a Youmu as well. I guess it might play into the future novels since IIRC, the fear of Mirai's clan was associated to Youmus.
Also do note that there was a scan released from vol.3's illustrations and it had Mirai with a Youmu resembling Aki. So that really implies that much of that was in a way coordinated with the author. It might not be 100% identical but it does have the same essence.
Might as well dump the pictures by well-known KyoAni people.
Ishihara Tatsuya (director)
Ikeda Kazumi (character design)
Does anyone else find it amusing that Rikka honestly believes that Utah will cheat on her?
Left: Ogawa Taiichi (episode director)
Right: Kitanohara Noriyuki (episode director)
Left: Takemoto Yasuhiro (episode director)
Left: Utsumi Hiroko (epsiode director)
Ishihara is a bad artist.
I'm glad he doesn't draw anymore.
Left: Yamada Naoko
Does Yamada have a thing for legs?
Left: Naito Nao (AD)
Right: Nishiya Futoshi (AD)
Seems so because her episodes always have a lot of focus on legs.
>a high school boy
What a surprise.
Kigami sued similar drawing style with his Free! illustration.
Did he use his pseudonym again?
Best girl stuck in a good show focused on men. Kigami a bro.
He's been using the penname Ichirou Miyoshi since he joined KyoAni.
Oh man. Utsumi nailed the Chuu2.
Wasn't there another one too?
People suspect he has also used another penname in the 80s.
Already had a feeling Nishiya did that one. Looks good. Take away the hairclip and she could pass as Gou.
Clearly a SoulTaker reference.
>He's been using the penname Ichirou Miyoshi since he joined KyoAni.
I don't think that's entirely correct.
-KyoAni was founded because of Kigami
-Kigami used his real name for Munto(Director)
-Ichirou Miyoshi pen name is used for ED
-Fumio Tada for KA/AD
Thanks for clarifying, that's very interesting.
>-KyoAni was founded because of Kigami
Something about him moving to Kyoto then retiring. Someone though it would be a waste of his talent so they set up a studio instead.
I can't confirm this.
>Best girl stuck in a good show focused on men. Kigami a bro.
and best art
gah!!!! they better use her design in a future project where she's the main protagonist
All that best girl art
Not entirely true.
KyoAni's founded in 1981 but they doesn't have the key-animation department until kyoani joined the studio around 1990.
In the past, he has used Fumio Tada for directing, not just KA/ED. Same for the name Ichirou Miyoshi.
And he's credited with his real name in K-on! movie and Haruhu movie.
>they don't have the key-animation department until Kigami joined the studio around 1990
It was probably on one of Raito-kun's old tweets or maybe in his blog.
Dark Flame Zombie
Could someone translate some of the wordier pages?
He has been translating a lot of Chuu2 materials so far.
And KyoAni in general.
People actually care about that shitty slut?
Color me surprised.
Don’t talk about Yamada’s seasonal waifu like that.
Does anyone know who did the endcards for KnK?
does anyone have the last endcards for the episodes 11 and 12?
Ep 12 card without sponsor spam
I notice some artifacts of this one and tried finding a better version but they’re all even worse.
I wish Yamada didn't have such shit taste in Free characters.
Only girl in the 'main' Free! cast. What do you expect? Just like how Utsumi picked DFM in this book.
>picking a character because their gender
Truly the worst.
Gou actually is cute though. I’m sorry you hate Kou.
>picking a shit character because of their gender
Fixed. Imouto a shit. Utah a shit.
Funny how both characters also ruin their respective shows. Should have made Chuu2 all-girls and Free all-boys.
The latter makes some sense but the former makes none
So things they have announced and 'announced' so far are Tamako Market movie and more Free!, right?
Excuse me for having taste.
You are excuses for your peculiar taste
I think I'm just going to post the other endcards.
This one is qt×2
Idol show of Fall season
Gotta go fast
Didn’t like Ayaka’s youmu form at all.
The remaining two I’ve posted already.
Finally a worthy mirai background
Is this one of those phones which you have to recharge every 4 hours?
Its not an iPhone but is a 1st gen 4g phone so battery life is p bad even with extendo battery
He’s scanning the KyoKana ones first
Does someone have a link to scans of Hyouka books?
Oh, that's my mistake then. I haven't really read through the thread and would have thought it was done.
I'll just wait then.
Can someone help here? Only finding incomplete stuff.
You mean the genga books? Finding scans of those is a bitch, I don't think there are any.
Damn. I found some on a animesuki but that was just a selection.
Could you post them please or at least link them?
So what anime-related print material is there for Hyouka? Calendar, genka books, and an artbook?
