This should work.
>>
PINGPONG CIRCULATE
>>
What studio?
>>
Wow, that's really unexpected.
>>

>>
Aw shit yes.
Get hype.

>PingPng

Hoooooly shiiiiiiiiiit
>>
>>100357305
>Is this the Olmpia hype?

Probably. Ever since Tokyo got the Olympics, there has been more sports anime than usual every season.
>>
>>100357217
Wow. That looks good. Pretty unique, minimalistic look. Too bad it's only going to have 11 episodes.
>>
>>100357305
I hate the olympics, not only causing banning of lolis, but also causing the rise in sports anime
>>
>The uploader has not made this video available in your country.

I will pirate this series and not feel bad about it.
>>
>Adapting a manga that finished 20 years ago

They do this?
>>
>>100357152
Call me when they make another ping-pong club anime.
>>
>>100357217
Who are the VAs?
>>
>>100357353
The manga is only 5 volumes.
>>
Oh, right, this is airing next season.

>Makoto Tsukimoto (nicknamed Smile) is a quiet high-schooler who's been friends with the loud and energetic Yukata Hoshino (nicknamed Peco) since childhood. They're both in the local table tennis club and both have a natural talent for it, although Smile's personality always enables him from winning against Peco. The club teacher however notices Smile's talent and tries to make him gain some sportive tenacity.

Is this the Tatami Galaxy of sports anime?
>>
>>100357422
Sounds to me like Kouki Uchiyama
>>
>>100357443
The visuals sure look like it. Though the outside of the school scene on the trailer looked really realistic which I was impressed with. I'm not sure about the story.
>>
Why the fuck is Yuasa adapting something with an amazing adaption already especially when Matsumoto has so much good manga to choose from.

>muh movie cross promotion to attract casuals
>>
>>100357305
Yes.
Expect a KyoAni x Olympics collab soon.

There are people in /a/ who never watch Ping Pong live action movie or read the manga

Only Yuasa could get me excited for a fucking ping pong anime.

>>100357496

Have you fags even read the manga?
Its super good.

>>100357580
most of /a/ is anime-only
>>
>>100357521
He must have wanted to do so for a while.
I remember the Mind Game cameo in Tekkon Kinkreet.
>>
Is Yuasa the guy who did Kemonozume, Mind game and Kick Heart?
>>
>>100357512
what is Free!

>>100357580
I haven't. But I will now knowing that it's only 5 volumes long.
>>
>>100357650
yes
next time try google

The live action was funny. Too bad Supercar has disbanded, maybe LAMA will do the OST?

>>100357748
if you're not a total newfag you'd know who yuasa is in this context

he's also the top google result for "yuasa anime"

nice try, though
>>
Hanaotoko anime when?
>>
>>100357748
Not anyone relevant in the anime world.
Googling "anime yuasa" only gives results about him for pages.
>>
>>100357798
Look at all those leaves. The anime has a lot to put on.
>>
Yuasa and Taiyou Matsumoto seem like a match made in heaven.
>>
>>100357813
I'm just not ignorant to think the only Yuasa I'm aware of is the one being talked about.

Apparently, it's animated by Tatsunoko.

RIP in pieces, Ping Pong.

Yuasa finds a way
>>
>>100358033
Tatsunoko did Gatchaman Crowds and new Yozakura Quartet
>>
>>100358120
So Ping Pong will be full of panty shots and have a rushed ending? Perfect.
>>
Dunno. The art of Pingpong is so fucking amazing and vivid, there's no way they can capture that in animation unless they're throwing a Disney movie budget at it.
>>

>>100358120
Tatsunoko isn't a bad studio, and Yuasa's identity is too strong anyway for the studio to make any real difference.
I just expected him to go with a studio he already worked with.

Casuals will call it QUALITY

Dumbass.

>>100358120
In case you haven't noticed, Gatchaman was full of QUALITY and they couldn't even finish the last episode on time. Yuasa is already asking for animators andepisode directors on twitter.
>>
>Kevin Aymeric (the background director for the anime) confirmed on Twitter that the studio is Tatsunoko Production.
>>
>>100358579
umm, if there were problems with gatchaman, then why did the director get on his hands and knees to apologize for the ending, huh?
>>
>>100358579
Well this time it's one episode less
>>
>>100358579
>already

Better now than after the first episode, like some industry saviors.
>>
>>100358619
>Kevin Aymeric
He did some nice work on Kickheart.

Another boring Yuasashit in the works, who cares?

Okay, so we get Mushishi and Ping Pong in spring and Kiseijuu at the end of the year... Am I dreaming or something? How is this fucking possible? Three great anime in one year, holy moley!

Well, they certainly will be ignored and then we get some years of nothing again but still. This is some great 2014 line-up. Especially Kiseijuu.

>Yuasa is already asking for animators andepisode directors on twitter.
As is Yamakan who's also happens to be at Tatsunoko.

It's like it's literally Anime Runner Kuromi 2.

This happened?

Who's doing the music?

he tweeted out a picture of it, too

Nope. Not believing this until I see a source or an image, but I can't be bothered to search for it, so, meh.

He had to. That episode was shit and nearly ruined the whole series.
>>
>>100358579
Always is the same shit with nakamura + tatsunoko. Yuasa is a genius, at least He will demand a great budget
>>
Yuasa was recruiting episode directors and animators on twitter. Ignore the studio, it's all freelance
>>
Damn this actually looks rather good. The sound effects and music at the start of the CM got me hyped.
>>
>>100357366
You say that like it's a bad thing.
>>
>QUALITY hipstershit
Cant wait for the flop.
>>
>>100362436

off

IRC
>>
>motherfucking Matsumoto Taiyou gets an anime

Get hype.
>>
>>100362506
He actually has one, Tekkonkinkreet.

The thing is, fucking YUASA is going to make it
>>
It looks like it's going to have the same style as Kemonozume. It matches Matsumoto's style, but I'm not really a fan of how Kemonozume looked when in motion.

Still, it's Taiyou, so I'm definitely watching.
>>
Is this real life? This is my favorite anime/manga-related live action film by my favorite manga artist, being adapted by my favorite anime director. Nothing can go wrong
>>
I think that if there's anyone that can capture the Peco vs Dragon match in animated form it's Yuasa, now if only Tatsuyuki Tanaka decided to work as an animator this thing would be absolutely perfect.
>>
My god, a Ping Pong anime by Yuasa, that's like a dream come true. I'm so fucking hyped.
>>
This is a dream come true. While Ping Pong isn't Matsumoto's best manga, It's still quite good. And with Yuasa at the helm it ought to be amazing.

Yuasa said the production is pretty rushed though.
>>
>>100357521
What have I ever done to deserve this?
>>
So in 2014 we get:
>Stardust Crusaders
>Ping Pong by yuasa
>Mushishi S2
>Parasyte anime

Great year for manga adaptions.

>>
>>100357152
So is this a Ping Pong Club ripoff, or is it just sports shonen?
>>
>>100369230
It's not shounen, but there's actual ping pong. But really, it as more of a base for the interactions between the two protagonists. It's a story.
>>
You glorious motherfuckers.
