After seeing /a/'s praise on this board and yama's disgust of that other guy, I thought he would be producing thoughtful anime with deeper stories.

Instead he creates shitty idol shows that pander to idolizers. Why do people keep saying anime is saved? I think he's just as pandering as harem anime if not worse.

A while back, he made a big deal about how anime had stagnated and how the studios were too close with the fanbase, which led to everything being fanservice and moe. He claimed his new series would "Save anime" and made a huge deal of it. /a/ latched onto the "Saving anime" thing.

His new series turned into a massive flop. It was dull, boring, and still had fanservice and moe scattered throughout (The naked bathing scene, the little girl AI, etc).

Recently he's directing a new anime, which is why people are bringing the "Saving anime" thing back up.

He didn't do anything when he saw the girls getting exploited, he didn't inquire about the details of the work.

Hell, it took the bringing up of the issue of a contract by Yoshino before he'd even do anything! What the fuck!

Anime director Yutaka Yamamoto (Yamakan) posted a message on Twitter on Wednesday that he is in desperate need of animation staff for Wake Up, Girls!. He wrote the following:

I don't really want to do this, but an emergency announcement. Animators who have interest in Wake Up, Girls!, please save us. Our studio staff is currently suffering from extreme fatigue. Even so, they are continuing to hold their ground with just their love towards this project. Even if it's just a few people, we need reinforcements. Even if just for one day, please come into Tatsunoko Productions.

But who will save Yamakan?

Yamakan got himself a dream project (wasn't he an AKB48 fan?) He now gets to critique that system, talk about post-earthquake issues related to Sendai, and has an opportunity to provide a group of girls an idealized idol experience while educating them about the dangers of the trade.

One thing to keep in mind though, would Yamakan be allowed to say too much about the idol industry? Investors probably undestand that they should tread lightly, then again Sendai serves as a kind of shield in this case. Anyway, fascinating project.

>>
>>100551829
Because everything requires context and generalizing anything off of single sentences like that are never very truthful.

Yamakan tried. He made an anime with an imaginative world. Despite what people say about Fractale, it didn't rely on pandering. It wasn't the best anime in the world but it deserved more than it got and it didn't get anything because the industry is already deep into a whole.

Now he's making an anime because he's a fan of the material. But at least he's making something he's a fan of and not just shitting out whatever he knows will make the most money.

Yamakan is a yakuza himself, what do you think why people keep giving him money for his continuous fuck-ups? He can do what he wants, and now he made a show about little girls getting exploited. This is as much a "fascinating" "educating" project as a rape doujin that educates girls about the dangers of tentacle monsters. If they all end up mindbroken, it's not a statement about the industry, it's fap material.

I'm a little bit surprised that episode 2 had such a negative backlash with online otakus. In a way, it was actually complimentary of idol otakus.

Consider the two big scenes in Episode 2 - The first was the disturbing one where the girls get treated like sex objects by a random group of adult men that don't care about their music. These were just everyday guys going to some sort of hotel/inn establishment. There's no reason to think that they're otakus.

The second big scene was the one at a maid cafe. So the audience/customers here are at least a step or two closer to otakus than the first group was. The second group (the one at the maid cafe) is presented in a very positive light, unlike the first group (random men at a hotel/inn establishment). The second group are "true fans" in that they not only care about the music, they even have a rapport with the idol star and kinda respond to her music in a sing along way.

So is this saying that your average Idol Otaku is more respectful of girls and women than your average adult man is? Is it saying that the real corrupting influence on the J-Pop idol industry is actually the casual mainstream, and not the hardcore fandom?

>tl;dr
>fuck old normalfags...hardcore dedicated otaku are the good guys
>>
>>100552845
The anime industry isn't dying. Pandering anime isn't killing it. That's just sensationalized garbage that people love to gobble up.

The industry just over-inflated. It grew too much and now can't sustain itself. It will recede back to a size it can sustain, that is all.
>>
>>100553124
When it recedes back to the size it can sustain, will we have good anime or more of the same shit we're getting now?
>>
>>100553227
It will have a mix of good and bad, as it always had.

However, the skew towards "shit" (which I would prefer to call low-effort instead of shit) we are experiencing now is most likely due to studios trying as hard as they can to keep the industry over-sized. Industry receding means many studios are going out of business, after all. So the ration of "good" (high effort) and "shit" (low effort) should improve.

I like how WuG is a stand-alone anime... no LN's and mangas to spoil it up here... so it's always gonna be a surprise every week until April.

PS Worked up Girls were lucky that Junko Tange happened to be in the sleazy establishment by accident. If That Junko was not around... I betcha that yes-man manager Matsuda would also sign for the 7 girls to do junior-idoling sessions (Gravure, U15) with even more skimpier (and fetish) outfits and more daring posts (as forced by the cameraman)

>>100553103
Do you realize this is clichè as fuck and pandering to the hardcore dedicated otaku guys?

>>100550380
Matsuda represents the otaku who stood around and did nothing while outside forces ruined anime with moeshit.
>>100553594
The studios have little say in what gets greenlit. They're mostly contractors. The trouble is that the production committees are mostly just in to make a quick yen, and the easiest way to do that is to pander to a small niche of people with deep wallets.

That's not their problem insofar as their hierarchy of authority based on age and seniority is. If senpai defrauds investors and tells you to take the fall for it and go to prison, with no expectation of a reward, you do it. It's a shitty system.

But Matsuda is a particularly shitty manager. Was he even present for their street performances or practices? He should really just curl up and die.
