Frankly yes, I don't appreciate Gainax's more recent moe crap like Mahoromatic or Konomini, but the studio still has a history of really terrific, groundbreaking titles (regardless of endings) and some of the most talented artists for creating such.
So what's so wrong about being a Gainaxfag?
I must say Gainax has yet to let me down.
Stigma left by Eva.
It's because they take their sweet time
hahaha oh wow.
Let down only by the fact that Akai resigned.
Also, watch Daicon 4.
Be a fanboy or don't, what's the diff. Who cares, pointless thread.
I agree, there's nothing wrong with it.
So they've made some series that aren't very good - which company hasn't?
There's no such thing as a production studio that has only made good anime, but Gainax's success rate is pretty darn good.
Does /a/ like Diebuster? Because I didn't, but you all seem to talk rather highly of it.
I respect Gainax more than any other studio (Except maybe 4C) even though Madhouse has more titles on my favorites list.
They're incredibly creative, and I give them credit for it.
Their only success was Evangelion, nothing else.
Mediocre studio always trying to make anime to show much their e-peen is big, but they always fail in the end.
people only started hating gainaxfags after gurren laganns popularity. before that nobody cared about them. i'm a huge gainaxfag as well.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann FTW!
Diebuster is ok.
It suffers a bit from the fact it's a sequel to an anime classic, and feels like it wasn't quite sure what kind of sequel it wanted to be.
The first half it has almost zero connection to the show it's a sequel to both in plot or style, which results in a lot of "shit is an insult to the original".
Then at the halfway point it shifts gear and starts very openly copying the original series, so people who haven't seen the original aren't going to get the impact of everything it's giving homage to. Then it has an ending which cannot be properly understood without seeing the original, which kind of bones people who picked up (and liked) Diebuster without having seen the original.
FLCL is the better Gainax production, by far.
Nothing. They made Evangelion, GL and FLCL... three of my favorite shows ever.
I started hating Gainax after Karekano and Mahoromatic.
Fucking studio makes everything fail in the end, they're like GONZO but with decent animators.
fellow gainax fag reporting in
I'm talking about successful shows, not quality overall. And flcl is shit, sorry.
FLCL, Mahoromatic and Gurren-Lagann are commercial successes above 90% of anime.
That just proved you had no argument.
Oh and inb4 somebody claims I'm Cirno.
The three of them sold consistently around 20,000 copies in Japan.
Of course I have no argument against some obvious bullshit.
And most anime sells barely 6,000 copies.
No need to, we already know that you Cirno.
But it's the truth. If selling 20,000 copies was "BOMBING" Bones wouldn't be alive now.
THERE'S THREE GAINAX THREADS ON PAGE0 RIGHT NOW I'M CUMMING SO MUCH
If it's obvious bullshit it should be obvious to disprove.
Since when is being one of the top 4 selling anime in the year not successful?
That's pretty much low cash if you take in consideration how much money Gainax waste with animation and shit. They fail at everything.
Selling only 20000 copies with all the money they invested on GL it's a failure.
>with all the money they invested on GL
And how much would that be?
yeah personally i believe they should do what other studios do and spend less money on works they care about.
Do you even know how much DVD's in Japan go for?
And for that matter have you bothered to research their net income at all and provide us with solid proof of your argument?
And you have actual numbers?
come now, we all know gainax doesn't make their money off dvd sales, but off figurines.
You forget broadcast revenue from jerkoffs that are still stupid enough to pay for commercials to air thinking people watch them.
Must be pretty high, animation is costly. 220000 keyframes must have been very expensive.
>crap like Mahoromatic
FUCK YOU FAGGOT.
Yea but how much?
I mean this argument is basically us holding a gun against your chest then you say-
"I have a bullet proof vest."
Without removing your shirt and we're basically suggesting you show us the vest while you're criticizing the caliber of our rifle.
This is going to end with us shooting the gun and you actually having the vest and us losing or you getting shot in the chest and slowly bleeding to death while looking like an idiot.
Oh of course not. That's why we have so many shows with 22000 keyframes around.
I like gainax but i don't consider my self a fanboy of any sorts. evangelion was shit to DEEP
Or because the industry is lazy and animators don't want to put the effort into it?
So you don't have real numbers and you have no idea if it was a failure or not.
You're speaking from your ass, in other words.
Good animation - yes
Good art - no
They hired some korean fuckers to do that.
Which is why the character designs got a fucking award.
The only gainax series i liked is puri puchi yushi.
IMO they should have stuck to making games.
They didn't do character design. idort
And why you're getting so over protective against some invalid argument? Maybe it's because you know very well it's the truth right?
No I don't have solid proof and I probably never will, this kind of information always stay secret within the studio. Sadly.
you've never played their games, how would you know?
NO ONE WILL KNOW THE TRUTH...BUT I DO!
HOW DO I KNOW? WELL I CAN'T TELL YOU THAT BECAUSE THE STUDIOS DON'T TELL ANYONE, NOT EVEN ME!
TRUST ME, I DON'T HAVE FACTS *OR* SOLID LOGIC, BUT I LIKE TO TROLL!
>And why you're getting so over protective against some invalid argument?
Why are you starting an invalid argument by making bold overgeneralized claims from your ass?
>Maybe it's because you know very well it's the truth right?
Now you're assuming I'm agreeing with you all because you're so goddamn sure of yourself that I HAVE to be wrong. You're either a very stupid troll or a very stupid poster.
>No I don't have solid proof and I probably never will
>this kind of information always stay secret within the studio. Sadly
>>Frankly yes, I don't appreciate Gainax's more recent moe crap like Mahoromatic or Konomini
What is it with how some weeaboos/western anime fans dislike "moe shows" (if that's even a real genre) and then going on about it like it's a badge of honor? All this anime shit is the SAME shit, it makes no difference whether you only watch one genre.
This is a phenomenon that only occurs among Western-fans. In Japan, if you watch any other anime besides Doraemon, then you're a fucking loser. It doesn't matter the genre of the anime you're watching, your level of social failure is considered equal.
I wish it were like this too in the US for anime.
Posting random pic to grab attention.
You're so cute when trying to protect Gurren Lagann, I can't help it.
It was based on an assumption. But since neither you guys know how much Gainax invested on GL, that means I'm not partially wrong either. The same goes for both of us. See?
Then why did you say >>10007018 like you knew what you're talking about?
If neither of us have any solid evidence then why start an argument at all? It's like arguing about UFO's and /x/ shit.
It's like my baby. I value it more than my life.
This thread was made for me :D
Because moe-heavy shows are lame and pathetic in my book.
I'm not watching anime to have a crush on a goddamn picture.
sryz i couldnt read your post i was just to distracted by rin
Because it's fun.
These were the only times I actually felt disturbed by a manga.
That and Berserk...
hopefully in the future america will one day understand that it's shameful to watch anime, whether it's a giant robot show, slice-of-life, or fanservice T&A series.
The amount of IRL anime fanboy faggotry would cease. Naruto-fags would be a thing of the past. Every anime watcher would be forced to suppress their power level, or be cast out from society, like in Japan.
I suppress my power-level. In RL I'm an movie/music snob and call anime "cartoons" or "animation".
>which company hasn't?
Tales of Earthsea is pure shit.
Ghibli's last three movies have been mediocre, at best.
Howl, Spirited, and Cat Returns. Haven't seen Cat, but the other two were top-notch. Not to mention Howl is Diana Motherfucking Wynne Jones.
IF YOU'RE COUNTING EARTHSEA I WILL END YOU
Earthsea is still Ghibli, silly.
>>There is no Tsukihime anime.
Earthsea was not a Ghibli production.
There is no Tsukihime anime.
Twelve Kingdoms will have a second season.
>>10007623 What is it with how some weeaboos/western anime fans dislike "moe shows" (if that's even a real genre)
They've been reading too much ANN and are buying into idiots like Answerfag who are playing it up as THE GREAT EVIL THATS RUINING ANIME.
Hating "moe" doesn't really mean much since it's it's word that's abused to turn it into whatever pet hate a person has.
Harem? That's moe.
Fanservice? That's moe.
Has girls in it? Moe.
Now it makes sense
