Preview pictures for the second episode of Nisekoi are out.
Looks shit. Just like the first one.
In comparison to Nobunagun it really is obvious how stale and one-trick-pony Shaft visuals are by now. They even had the nerve to drag the despair shot out of the grave.
I wish Nisekoi was done by proper studio..
I always thought he was blonde.
This guy knows what he's talking about
Wait Claude's hair is WHITE?
Why can't Shaft make an anime without sperging? They're like some kid with ADD that can't focus on the thing in their hand and has to do other shit to be entertained.
>3 animation supervisors
The first episode was filled with so much shit that it made it hard to actually concentrate on the plot itself.
This isn't -monogatari with 2deep4you dialogue and symbolism, this is just your average romcom, and the shit they pull does not work here
So, how long till the Yakuza/Mob thing is forgotten? Fuck, I really liked that.
Is she sunburned? Or is it a typical lazy shaft coloring?
Ex shaft that left because Shinbo was a dick handled it better.
Sure, it's samefaggy here.
ahahahah ahah oh wow
Its litterally reusing frames, and to that - frames from anime that does not belong to Shinbo
I'm glad there are no people like you in the production staff.
Nisekoi is shit and SHAFT makes it even more shit. Deal with it.
DC III looked ten times better than Nisekoi
>Its litterally reusing frames
Funny how you managed to get two out of four words wrong though.
After this episode. Got it.
Majority of SHAFT talented "production staff" left length.
You can see them working this season on Sakura Trick and No-Rin. Now shinbo just recycles shit over and over.
It's your fault if you can't keep up the pace and can't concentrate on the plot.
You have no one else to blame but yourself.
Can't wait to see the ED next saturday.
Not as bad as what they did with Negima and Natsu no Arashi. Though that's not saying much.
Nisekoi could actually be good if made by Ken'ichi Ishikura, but he left, just like most of other talent.
He directs Sakura Trick this season. One of main reasons why its good.
Not him, but 1st EP is horrible adaptation - it left nothing of pace, humor and feeling of manga. its like detached mix of different style sequences that dont fit into single show.
eh Nisekoi is not that bad
it's a favorite kicking bag for people who want to show off how savvy they are, which is pathetic
and then there are the shafthaters that are just as bad as shaftfags
then there's the faggot who latched onto that show posting screenshots of it for some reason
Can DC III be watched without the previous ones? I checked the characters and they differ but I can't tell if they're necessary.
Funny day to live, when Silverlink and Deed are better Shaft than Shaft.
I don't know why, but sudden headtilts and cut to rain and scenery feel just wrong, sometimes I just want they to focus on the protag's face but no they need to ppoint the camera to somewhere else..
I mean this is just not suitable for Nisekoi at all.
Yes. You`ll miss few references, but thats it.
Nisekoi is filled to the brim with tropes and clichés, it's nothing we haven't seen before. But sure, if you like generic harem I can see why you would like it.
But most of all fuck Jump for serializing Nisekoi but axing Double Arts.
Saint Young Men > Arakawa
Negima by Xebec > Negima?! by Shaft
School Rumble > Natsu no Arashi
Kyouran Kazoku Family > Sasami
Katanagatari > Bakemonogatari
K-On! > Hidamai (same magazine, while K-On manga was garbage in comparison)
Joshiraku > SZS
Dazle > Maria Holic
Drakuriot/Strike the Blood > Dance in Vampire Bund
Thanks anon, appreciate it.
Some of those have nothing in common
KnK > Bake
For example? The only stretch is K-On!/Hidamari. Only thing they have in common is magazin they are published at. That said, K-On manga is shit compared to Hidamari, yet anime is megahit.
Shaft mishandled Hidamari initially, releasing with fucked up schedule and no budget, but it improved over seasons and gained some popularity.
>School Rumble > Natsu no Arashi
Okay fuck you too brother
>Saint Young Men > Arakawa
Stop reading right there.
How is Natsu no Arashi and School Rumble anything alike? Saint Young Men and Arakawa? Katanagatari and Bakemonogatari?
KnK is not comparable to Bake, and no - while visually better, in all other aspects its worse: Nishio is better thant hat hack of LN writer KyoAni "adapted" or their own script writers
Katanagatari on other hand is very similar to Bakemonogatari Nishio work, and it got a lot better threatment than Shaft adaptation, proving it doesnt have to be "shaft" style to be good.
>Saint Young Men and Arakawa? Katanagatari and Bakemonogatari?
Are you serious?
>Katanagatari > Bakemonogatari
No, just no. Okay, props to White Fox for keeping better with the style of original illustrations I guess, Watanabe is a hack etc etc, but Katanagatari is just so fucking boring, visually. And it's a series that needed more action, not talking! In Monogatari there's almost nothing but talk, but there's always something happening on the screen.
Same author. Saint Young Men got anime and movie, which are a lot more popular now than Arakawa, and were in all aspects better adapted.
Same author. SHAFT slaugthered Natsu no Arashi "adaptation". While they are not quite similar in tone, Shaft left nothing of Jin Kobayashi appeal at all.
>In Monogatari there's almost nothing but talk, but there's always something happening on the screen.
>seriously comparing Katanagatari to Slideshowgatari
You cant be this deluded, are you trolling?
>Katanagatari and Bakemonogatari
they got gatari at the end
but seriously though the shafthate in these thread is poisonous
>SHAFT slaugthered Natsu no Arashi "adaptation". While they are not quite similar in tone, Shaft left nothing of Jin Kobayashi appeal at all.
You do know Kobayashi storyboarded (which is nearly equal to directed in context of animation) episode 12 of Season 2 himself? And every episode that was actually adapted from a manga chapter was recreated faithfully and well. The reason Season 2 went in the direction it did is honestly, because producers wanted it and Kobayashi and Shinbo did not disagree. There was never a conclusive future for this series anyway so they figured they might as well have some fun.
Yeah, very serious. The tone and humour isn't anything alike in SYM and Arakawa, sure they may be written by the same guy but that doesn't directly make them comparable. Both are good for what they are. Same with Katanagatari and Bakemonogatari. If anything I think Shaft did a better job on both Arakawa and arguably on Bakemonogatari, at least the first season.
>Same author. Saint Young Men got anime and movie
I know that, but the OVA were pretty fucking disappointing, Arakawa is way better.
I give you the movie because I still don't see it.
Katangatari is literally "10 minutes of explaining the action then 10 seconds of doing said action". And then they fucking talk WHILE the action is going on, and the action gets put on slow motion so they could TALK MORE. It's poorly directed, end of story. The nature of the stories is incomparable. Simply taking lines from Monogatari books and putting them against so random slides worked because the nature of Monogatari is more detective, investigative, psychological and introspective. Katanagatari is a fucking post-modern shonen. It should've been rewritten to fit the medium.
I agree that both Sakura Trick and No-Rin utilize "shaft" stype better this season. Nisekoi feels just like deja-vu, litterally nothing new since Moonphase and no real point in using all those quirks.
Shinbo just cut most of text from Bakemonogatari, if you did not read LN you dont imagine how much you miss. Katanagatari is way better adaptation in that aspect, as it managed to maintain most of his writing, while also having great diretion and superb action.
The second episode hasn't even aired yet, why is everyone already judging everything as if it's already over?
I've read both and Katanagatari also cuts a shitton. And thank fucking god it does because Monogatari made by White Fox would've been literally a still frame, they're that clueless.
Do you honestly think they're gonna change their sperging? Look at the preview pictures.
>trying this hard
Sakura Trick is a straight copy of the Hidamari visuals.
No-Rin doesn't even look close to anything Shaft related.
No-Rin feels more like Baka to Test. The person responsible left SHAFT long ago so actually developed his own style further, it is very different from shaft at this point. The latest Shaft anime made by him was EF and Pani Pani Dash. He was involved in Monogatari`s but not much.
Sakura Trick i give you, Ishikura is good and his works feel more "Shaft" than modern Shaft.
The biggest problem is that Oishi left. Without him SHAFT took a huge hit. Wonder if he`ll make his own anime soon as well.
>being this new
Sakura Trick looks like Hidamari since its made by Hidamari staff that developed this style.
No-Rin is ex-shaft director, Shin oonuma - he directed many of SHAFT shows and its HIS style, not Shinbo`s you see often.
Sakura Trick is pretty boring.
Same Hidamari quirks with a bad color palette and without smart visual gags.
Shaft is barebones of its old self at this point. In before Inu Cury leaves.
>Sakura Trick have better "shaft" style this season
I really don't know if people really believe that or are just trolls, Sakura Trick feels that tries to maintain a "normal" style while trying to put SHAFT frames in between, it doesn't feel natural at all.
this season, anything shafty that isn't actually by shaft is better
heck this season, i bet if a different show shows a headtilt, it would automatically be better than shaft's
You have no idea what you are talking about. Its like telling Satoshi Kon movie does not feel very "Satoshi Kon-ish".
Madoka was quite original in direction and visual aspect. Monogatari suffered from Oishi loss. Then Sasami and Nisekoi seems to be back to usual stuff...
>Sakura Trick looks like Hidamari since its made by Hidamari staff that developed this style.
It's only Ken'ichi Ishikura who worked as episode director on many Hidamari episodes.
He wasn't in charge of "developing the Hidamari style".
And Shin Oonuma is the least talented ex-Shaft director.
He can only repeat crazy visual gag until everything turns into a visual mess if he doesn't have people who push him back. Dusk Maiden, Watamote...
holy shit that's a fucking terrible analogy
are you claiming that sakura trick adaptation is somehow made by someone "natural" to the adaptation
how the fuck could you even know?
Best looking "shaft show" of this century?
no... visual mess.
As opposed to Nisekoi?
Now you are just trolling.
Do you even know what Inu Curry is?
Literally, dog curry
>Madoka was quite original in direction and visual aspect.
Not really, Madoka was Bakemonogatari with Gekidan Inu Curry animation as second hand, it was great but it wasn't really original.
>trying this hard
Why the fuck it call dog curry anyway?
>trying to troll a shaft show
implying shit show needs trolling
Its like reliving Maria-Holic, Denpa Onna, Sasami times (well Sasami was actually ok). Shaft newfags once again in denial.
>wasn't really original
You sure know how to read.
First BD/DVD will be released on 3.26. It also includes an event ticket.
For fuck's sake, Japan, you won't let anyone off this ride, will you?
What is the difference between dokidoki and tokimeki?
Dokidoki is onomatopoeia and can thus be used as a sound effect.
