Why are there so few anime that experiment with artstyles when the medium has practically unlimited potential for innovation?
Conventional styles have less risk of alienating the BD buying audience
The only one on there that sold worth a damn was SZS.
because anime is 80% adaption
It's the manga that experiment with artstyles so anime doesn't have to.
>not having yuyushiki or nichijou
Quite an accurate estimate of the percentage of originals to adaptation.
Experimenting costs money.
Neither of those are really that unconventional just slight variants of the standard and it's only the character designs the rest is standard.
You forgot Katanagatari.
A lot of these artstyles save money though. Think SZS or the low detail of Kaiba.
It should have ended when they got back to the city with the sunset just before she got killed, ruined the whole series.
That's because Shaft doesn't animate them.
I think a lot of effort and money went into that, what is lost in detail is gained in fluidity of animation.
In Kaibas case its just switching one cost with another rather than making it more costly. In the SZS case I disagree its not nessecarily shaft but the artstyle and mannerisms of the manga itself that lends it to that.
God I love Masaaki Yuasa. I really hope he gets to make another weekly anime, watching Tatami Galaxy as it came out was wonderful.
>In the SZS case I disagree its not nessecarily shaft
That would have been a valid argument a while ago.
But Uchouten Kazoku was beautiful animated with Kumeta's designs.
The animation in UK was nothing special and the adaptations of the designs were fucking awful compared to SHAFTs.
>Not a single mention of Tatami Galaxy
I can only imagine how little the cost was too make this anime.
Haven't heard about Ping Pong?
Time and money?
It's simply easier for a studio to churn out what they are used to and more efficiently. Getting a whole new art style and sustaining it for the duration of a season would be difficult for any small/medium sized studio.
It's not like such shows always bomb though - Mononoke did pretty didn't it for example? And Petits Cubes won an animation award (but then it was a short and a small team project/effort)
I have now. YESSSSSSSS
Hey, I did: >>100857544
I have good news which will.make your day. He is making an anime next season. Not just that though it's an adaptation of the taiyou matsumoto manga ping pong which is extremely strong source material if yoh are unfamiliar, get fucking hyped.
>I really hope he gets to make another weekly anime
Didn't you hear about Ping-pong?
>watching Tatami Galaxy as it came out was wonderful.
Can't believe it was more than 3 years ago...
It's the worst Yuasa anime.
Kezo > Kaiba > Tatami
Anon please forgive me, i wrote up the comment after skimming the very post right above yours
Ultimate hipster bait.
I envy the both of you like you wouldn't believe. I just marathoned it two days ago and I was caught off guard with how powerful those last 3 episodes were. This was one of the few anime that i didn't watch with /a/, and i deeply regret it.
Oh wow, it's opposite day.
>I just marathoned it two days ago and I was caught off guard with how powerful those last 3 episodes were.
Bitch please, I cried actual tears of joy when watching episode 11 back then.
>There is nothing more boring than a love story in which everything goes well
That zoom in on Akashi, followed by those few tears. and that soundtrack to go with it, jesus fucking christ.
You seem to be under the impression that i didn't. well let me set you straight right here and now.
I cried even more after watching it a second time
I think I started crying at Ozu!
Inu Curry's own anime when
Isn't that universe?
