Why is there no first person anime?
Because one locked perspective is a shitty way to tell a story.
>First person anime
How the fuck would that even work?
Immersion through the main character wouldn't work because you can't control his actions, but the author/director does.
Therefor, only a few actions that clash with your own are needed, which would be 10 minutes of the first episode.
Thus, immersion will be broken, and anime is all about immersion, and the best way to immerse yourself into a story is to be the bystander who judges and watches.
I always thought it would be a good idea for a VN adaptation to be as close to a 1:1 adaptation as possible, with a first-person viewpoint and everything.
Shaft could pull it off I'm sure.
I believe there has been extras and parts of anime that have featured first person view though. If you don't recall these, you obviously aren't an anime expert who has seen over 300 animesssss.
something like that I guess
>and anime is all about immersion
no it isn't
multiple subsets of it are, but the medium as a whole is not
It would work fine if it was a silent protagonist that just went with the flow of things, or if there was some bullshit plot twist about the circumstances of the viewpoint being how it is.
The first episode of Idolm@ster did it.
It was shit.
You'd have to do it like Peep Show were you see it from multiple peoples PoV.
Idolm@ster ep1 did that.
It's weird playing a VN, then watching an anime adaption of the VN which changes to 3rd person narrative.
It would be nice though, an anime about a silent main character, we follow his everyday life and his interactions with people. Maybe if a Punpun adaption happened, it would work well as a mixed 1st/3rd person narrative anime.
anyone from /tv/ here? what was that one european movie called that starts with a first person view of a woman getting fucked in a missionary position by a chubby, nerdy dude, getting close to her face/camera and breathing on it?
I think it was the most disgusting thing I have seen so far and I used ogrish and rotten when I was younger.
>Maybe if a Punpun adaption happened
It's okay to peek at depression, but to be swallowed by it would discourage a lot of people from watching an anime as you described, creating controversy
>and I used ogrish and rotten when I was younger.
you used it? for what? masturbation material?
Animes are shit and you know why? Because there's no anime character that can kill Jackie Chan in his natural environment:
- Rooms full of chairs, tables and other props.
- He's holding a baby
- The girl he loves is watching him
- He wants no trouble
- He has a black guy sidekick that has a really unfunny catch phrase
- His family was dishonored
I'm sorry, but it can't be helped, anons. It's just the truth.
I would rather have a 3rd person anime where it's all about one event, and each different episode is from the point of view of a different character, but I don't think a first person would work.
Really I think its because it would cost too much money to get anywhere decent. I mean think about it, all the scenes where people move anywhere the entire background now has to be animated moving instead of just grabbing 2 people and animating them against a background. Costs would get huge.
All comments aside, it would be hard to animate something from 1st person view. We see it sometimes in anime, but only for brief moments.
Here are some nice examples anyway
>Not jackie chan in a ladder factory
i dun wan no trabble
>watch it with the oculus rift
Sounds hard to animate.
Would an Ever17 adaption ever work?
Well, there's 3D CG...
I thought this at first but then realized that they would have to draw each frames just a bit larger that way they could shake the camera a little and bam first person
What about movment through scenery?
Going through a corridor, or down the stairs.
This shit is hard to animate and costly.
It would cost a lot to produce an entire series like that. Especially in motion. You'd have to draw a new background or adjust it every time the protagonist moves forward.
Its impossible with 2d animation, the biggest limitation of 2d animation is ANGLE CHANGES, which first person perspectives drives home. Every frame would essentially be a key frame to be carefully drawn.
You can look at cowboy bebop episode 1, look at that short scene where they mimic first person, it uses extensive visual heuristics to achieve that effect.
>I don't understand animation tell me why my retarded idea won't work
You can achieve flawless angle (but not PoV position) changes with CGI aid, similar to skyboxes in vidya. But that's not pure 2d anymore, and drawing backgrounds suitable for 3D mapping is far more difficult than drawing simple 2D ones.
There's some first person H-anime.
I wish anime did more shit like this.
KID died and the rights got bought out by Cyberfront.
Who then died.
Who knows where the rights belong now.
I know it's futile, but what anime is this? I'm on my phone and can't search it.
Half-Life anime when
Yozakura Quartet:Hana no Uta
it's called visual novel
or some hentai of chichinoya
How the fuck is being trapped inside an invisible floating ghost more immersive than being trapped inside one of the characters?
Hyouka movie arc has nice fpp scenes. Tamako has one in haunted house.
It would be difficult, I don't know how they would mix the two routes together
That subtle pantsushot.
Having your thoughts thought out for you isn't realistic, as easygoing and as much as you'd like to flow with the character, personalities are bound to clash.
Rather than saying 'I would never do that', you can say 'I would never do as he does', which makes it easier to still remain immersed inside the atmosphere and story.
Imouto paradise did it.
One day I'd like to see a VN adaptation that uses 1st person perspective to avoid having to show the blank slate MC. Those kind of characters, while vital to a VN's structure, really drag the whole thing down when you put them in an anime.
What is FLAG?
Murakami's stuff has a lot of first person, but not 100%. Also, you need to be able to deal with a shakycam that unfocuses for no reason.
It's just fucking hard and expensive to animate it.
And I also don't want an anime that only has CG backgrounds.
I miss quartet
It was used a often in Colorful. Personally, didn't really like it. FP immersion is only super effective in videogames.
