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
>>
>recent

>Mahoromatic

hahaha oh wow.
>>
>>10006839
>>10006868

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.
>>
>>10006922
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!
>>
>>10006926

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.

>>10007018

FLCL is the better Gainax production, by far.
>>
>>10007018

lol
>>
Nothing. They made Evangelion, GL and FLCL... three of my favorite shows ever.
>>
>>10007039
I started hating Gainax after Karekano and Mahoromatic.

Fucking studio makes everything fail in the end, they're like GONZO but with decent animators.

I'm talking about successful shows, not quality overall. And flcl is shit, sorry.

Die.
>>
>>10007135

FLCL, Mahoromatic and Gurren-Lagann are commercial successes above 90% of anime.
>>
>>10007151
Yeah, right.
>>
>>10007178

That just proved you had no argument.
>>
>>10007182

Oh and inb4 somebody claims I'm Cirno.
>>
>>10007178

The three of them sold consistently around 20,000 copies in Japan.
>>
>>10007182
Of course I have no argument against some obvious bullshit.

Come again.
>>
>>10007194

And most anime sells barely 6,000 copies.
>>
>>10007190
No need to, we already know that you Cirno.
>>
>>10007217

But it's the truth. If selling 20,000 copies was "BOMBING" Bones wouldn't be alive now.

If it's obvious bullshit it should be obvious to disprove.

Try harder.
>>
>>10007135
Since when is being one of the top 4 selling anime in the year not successful?
>>
>>10007194
That's pretty much low cash if you take in consideration how much money Gainax waste with animation and shit. They fail at everything.
>>
>>10007259
Selling only 20000 copies with all the money they invested on GL it's a failure.
>>
>>10007308
>with all the money they invested on GL
And how much would that be?
>>
>>10007282
yeah personally i believe they should do what other studios do and spend less money on works they care about.
>>
>>10007282

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?
>>
>>10007282
>>10007308

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.
>>
>>10007323
Must be pretty high, animation is costly. 220000 keyframes must have been very expensive.
>>
>>10007382

...or not.
>>
Its popular
>>
>crap like Mahoromatic

FUCK YOU FAGGOT.
>>
>>10007382

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.
>>
>>10007401
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
>>
>>10007429

Or because the industry is lazy and animators don't want to put the effort into it?
>>
>>10007382
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.
>>
>>10007429

Good animation - yes
Good art - no

They hired some korean fuckers to do that.
>>
>>10007490

Which is why the character designs got a fucking award.

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.
>>
>>10007548
you've never played their games, how would you know?
>>
>>10007562
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!
>>
>>10007562

>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

DUR HURR

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.

>>10007463
You're so cute when trying to protect Gurren Lagann, I can't help it.

>>10007616
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?
>>
>>10007694

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.
>>
>>10007694
It's like my baby. I value it more than my life.

This thread was made for me :D

I'm not watching anime to have a crush on a goddamn picture.

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.
>>
>>10007990

I suppress my power-level. In RL I'm an movie/music snob and call anime "cartoons" or "animation".

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
