>Anime will never look like this again
I agree, anime looked better back then
>Kunio-kun will never get another game
I don't remember Yusuke being that classy.
then again, it's the best looking yuyu hakusho image I've ever seen. Was there a blu ray or something?
someone explain to me why older anime looks different (better). obviously it's in the animation techniques, but I mean specifically
japs drew it
nowadays koreans draw it
Because it doesn't.
It should be, "Hoo, thems' some bug-ugly panties. Crack stained, too."
In the manga it was, at least. I used to own it when I was a teenager. Anime a shit.
it's a shame really. I would love to see an 80's/early 90's styled anime done again.
>you just don get it do you you fat fucker
Just opened my copy of ep 1. He says "shiro ka?" so the subs arent shit, they just changed it in the anime
Hand painted/shaded animation cels vs digitally colored/maybe shaded on a good day modern technique
Also 80's character design was GOAT
Older animation really looks like shit.
>anime/manga art is an echo chamber where inbred fags draw moemoe shit and it all looks the same
>back in the day anime style wasn't so set in stone
>animators back in the day learned how to draw by studying actual art books, not japanese versions of "how to draw manga" because that shit didn't exist yet
>evidence of this: side art in the Yuyu Hakusho manga. Holy shit that guy can draw
>even shitty artists like Rumiko Takahashi drew extensively from life (dat gesture work)
>same applicable to animators--they learned to draw by drawing from life, not inbred retarded tutorials where all the girls have no leg definition and faces are flat pentagons
>animators learn from how-to-draw-anime-style shit
>it all floats away from realism roots
>inb4 herp derp 80s anime was cartoony as shit: it was simplified and cartoony, yeah, duh, but everything was derived properly from life drawing
Too tired to speak properly but you get what I'm saying. Basically the how to draw books now are crutches and they stagnate any artist who prefers to learn from them, IE lazy animator chinks who get paid in instant ramen.
God damn did folk in the 80s and 90s draw some juicy thighs. You can tell they knew their life studies. All the proper muscles and in the right places. Simplified and stylized for sure, but the foundations were there.
Koreans have been drawing anime for decades, they just haven't been credited beyond the studio name in the past.
Also, now is the time of the Vietnamese; pay attention will ya?
That makes me sad
>tfw anime will never look as good as the 1996/1997 masterpiece Saber Marionette J
The strawman used in every old vs new argument
You can't become an animator with just skills gained from an how-to-draw-anime tutorial. Unless you draw everything from a side-view perspective, you need a solid grasp of volume to make even the most basic animations somewhat convincing.
And stop abusing the quotation functionality.
Have to use it to make sure people aren't fucking retarded and realize that there are bad and good looking anime from both eras.
One was NOT objectively superior to the other like retards always think.
We need more anime with delinquent MCs.
Of course there are shitty and brilliant pieces of animation from every era... But it's not incorrect to point out that 80's animation was really something special
Delinquents like that don't even exist any more outside manga.
I would love a modern hotblooded delinquent ova
That aside the OP's image has a wicked case of sameface and isn't really a good example of superior drawing
With throwback designs and music of course
Nice strawman idiot. Do you even know what the word "animation" means? Hint: it doesn't involve static images
I'm kind of tired of the "average guy" in anime. I want a guy that fucks shit up.
That said, the market has changed. What anime fans desire to be has changed from "strong guy who does what he wants" to "guy who gets the girl." Oversimplified as fuck but I'm trying to eat and post at the same time.
I paint (read copy) anime cel the traditional way as a hobby and I can understand why they switched to digital; finishing a whole cel from the sketch to painting can take a whole day.
American cartoons are drawn by Koreans as well, are American cartoons Korean?
Man, Japanese anime, as much as American cartoons, are only partially made in Korea.
>modern style MC accidentally gets sent to school for delinquents
>slowly becomes hotblooded as fuck
>throw a baddass biker chick love interest in there
>print otaku dollars and bring the oldschool back into the limelight
>throw a baddass biker chick love interest in there
You know what I'd love? A biker anime, where the producers actually learn a thing or two about choppers, cafe racers, and bobbers. Then they can go and make something like an Easyrider anime.
Can you imagine if the anime didn't change a few things
And not a single citation to back up all that shit. Face it, you are talking out of your ass.
I hope you read/are reading Rokudenashi Blues
>there will never be a board that discusses animation technique properly
Different anon. I'm up to date on it. There's so much left to be translated, I just can't bear the wait.
I agree with the people in this thread. Sometime after Shinji, we got a horde of skinny middle school - high school MCs who were beta as fuck and still today thats most of what we're getting. I miss manly men MCs like Kenshiro, Goku, Jotaro etc
Well at least Jotaro is coming back soon.
Easiest of anything to spot is the shift in shading technique. A lot of older stuff that we (as in /a/ and the West in general) remember is either the higher production value series, OAVs and films. Because higher budgets or not working at a week to week time constraint allowed it, we remember getting five- or seven-point shading, when the things with a quicker turnaround or lower budget got one- three-point shading.
We just don't tend to remember the lesser stuff as much as the greater, so it throws the view to being "then vs now" instead of "high budget/time vs low budget/time".
>that's my daughter
everyone in Akira looks like they have down syndrome
and josuke after him hopefully
2delinquent4me cant wait
You bet your ass he is.
all of the characters have unique faces
Same. And I'm at this point 100% certain that unless a catastrophe happens David will keep animating the parts.
You should try taking a screencap from a modern anime and replicate it on a cell.
I would want it to be less comedic
This. I love Cromartie High but I'd like a combination of seriousness and comedy. Like Slam Dunk or Rokudenashi Blues.
It got remastered. There's better releases than DeadFish, anyway. They downscaled to 720p, even though it's 4:3, which is stupid.
also I like both new and old animation. they both have their merits.
That anon you were responding to. Holy wah, I'm not even going to backlog this; I'm picking this up right after R+V is finished.
What the actual fuck.
>citation for art trends over the years
Yeah, let me just look up "when did animators cease being able to draw thighs" on wikipedia.
Girls weren't moe enough back then.
They also had those retarded looking eyes like in >>100128719
I'm glad Japan moved on
What I really about older anime is that the legs are twice the size the torso.
>They also had those retarded looking eyes
nigga you cant be serious
Oh but I am, because I'm not a nostalgiafag.
Just cooked up a butfur
It's either watercolor backgrounds or the use of cels that you're wishing for.
And nothing of value was lost.
>retarded looking eyes
I prefer lively ones to the soulless madoka-eyes that keep showing up.
90s master race
I know. It hurts
Fucking seriously? Or this is just a cherry pick shot?
It's got to do with how sterile the colors look now. A good example is Last Exile, compare the first season of Last Exile with the awful second season.
I think part of the reason second season was such a flop was because there wasn't that gray bloom filter or whatever we were so used to. The bright and clear colors broke the immersion.
It's a damn shame honestly.
this was literally the last thread on the catalog and it's still alive
is yu yu hakusho any good?
Should I watch or read it?
are there significant differences between the two versions?
