Why do people hate Shaft?
>why do people hate shaft?
because they're plebs
i love shaft
people hate SHAFT? Doesn't their production dominate the sales chart?
>flashy openings to distract from shit animation quality
>constant gags to distract from shit animation quality
>"minimalist style" to distract from shit animation quality
>constant rushed deadlines to contribute to shit animation quality
Nobody hates Shaft. People who say things like that are just trying to start fanbase wars.
That goes for any successful studio, of course.
Because they are a successful minimalist studio with a huge vocal fanbase and remember, we all are hipsters here.
Because it doesn't make sense that a total poorfag studio run by terrible people is so successful.
Shaft continuing to be successful is a bad thing because Aniplex sucks them dry and they can never improve themselves.
Because of Madoka and Monogatari.
I remember before SHAFT was mainstream, everyone loved them. Now it's cool to hate on them.
I have thought for years my AOAT Kuchu Buranko was made by shaft. It just fits their colorful art style and use of real images and CGI.
Then I found out its made by that piece of shit kids studio Toei Animation.
Because they're greedy jews who don't want to spend money on decent animaton that lasts more than 10 seconds.
I'll take my shit animation quality then, if I get my Platinum Disco.
Because of their slideshow
And it's still more successful than your favorite anime.
I wish Shaft would use more real-life pictures again.
Nope, they have too much money now.
I'm a sucker for it.
/a/ hates popular things
And how did you feel?
talking about good times.
Because they are doing stuff for normalfags now.
I'm glad they don't. This was absolutely disgusting.
very good times.
>3D nipples where the anime doesn't have it
Can we agree that Bakemonogatari and SZS are best SHAFT's productions?
doing more and more stuff for the non-otaku demographics.
pandering and more pandering...
We're living in bizarro world.
The rest was disgusting.
Hanekawa is obese.
That's a weird way of spelling Pani Poni Dash.
Shaft is still the Master of Good Openings:
Sure. Pani Poni Dash is up there too.
Mousou Express is just average.
What about EDs?
>doing more and more stuff for the non-otaku demographics
It's because they haven't made a good show since SZS/Mariaholic
Best SHAFT's ED? Best SHAFT's ED:
You are missing Tsukuyomi.
no. bake is shit.
Oh, is this a SHAFT hipster thread? My favorite is REC, but you probably never heard of it.
You are shit.
I don't but Sasami was fucking grade A awful.
Dont forget the ef opening:
>SHAFT hipster thread
What makes you say that?
I don't know, it feels like the other way around. They both pander anyway so there is no point in arguing about that.
>series about a traitorous, slutty whore
That's some shit taste you got there, anon.
>Single best work of parody in the history of modern Japan
>Fanservice Anime made with google images and animated in Powerpoint 2003.
How the hell was such a pile of technical crap so successful?
Because it was great.
Pani Poni Dash is my favorite thing Shaft has ever done. So much pichi-pichi and just the right amount of random humor and references.
It came out right after the financial crisis. Everything that season looks just as bad or worse, except NEEDLESS, which is only decent because madhouse did it.
The animation isn't the problem though, it's the abysmal 1-dimensional fanservice women and general lack of any plot.
>and general lack of any plot
Everything else was good.
harem show with shittons of fanservice = ¥¥¥
Why is Hidamari looking so bad beside all from Monogatari?
Araragi flirts with girls that are actually some mythological japanese legend shit != plot
The show is borderline episodic, the "episodes" are just muliple-episodes long. It's shit.
And yet, it was the most successful series of the last decade. Oh, Japan, how could you have bought more than one million copies of this garbage? Such shit taste you have, my my.
>Nipple is a train station
>it was the most successful series
I told you motherfuckers this would happen in 2009 and you didn't listen. The IQ threads fucking sealed it, monogatari is a perfect storm of pretention on level with Elfen Lied, Evangelion, and Madoka. And only one of those shows isn't shit.
I can't tell if you're being ironic or not anymore but, either way, you seem to be trying too hard for nothing, have a cute Snail, hope she makes you feel better.
That's the arc I dropped the show on! Combination of Ararararararagi being a cunt and that scene where there's literally no animation and they stare at a cell phone screen for 8 minutes. Abysmal is the only word that comes to mind.
Looks like a gorespammer imitator is back.
See, by "just the right amount" of references, I meant, there's so many, that I don't care about the ones that go over my head and can appreciated the other ones that I do understand.
Is it time?
Maria Holic has for me still the best Ending:
>Araragi flirts with girls
But that's wrong
He barely even flirts with Crab and she's his waifu
I hate Kobayashi but I liked the OP more than the ED.
>you will never play on a guitar maiden
This. This is the formula for a best seller, that's why most of harem shows tend to have an average of 80K.
How is it possible to be this hipster?
>There are people who didn't watch all the pre-Shinbo Shaft productions
Gorespammer was making the pro and anti Bakemono threads. His real purpose was to promote the show.
Even though Shaft does rely too much on their signature visual gimmicks at times, most of what they pick up is perfectly suited for their style.
Mekaku City Actors should be a lot more daring in the visual department than Nisekoi has been so far.
>gorespammer was almost 5 years ago
That's it, I'm killing myself.
Because their anime is bad and filled with pandering service, and Madoka and Monogatari do not deserve to be as successful as they are.
I'd really like them to get good again. I mean, Madoka was better than monogatari at least. I may come off as trying to be a hipster, but it's just a side effect of liking SHAFT then having them not make a show I liked for a few years straight.
Nisekoi is the perfect adaptation though.
>Madoka was better than monogatari at least
>Madoka was better than monogatari at least
Well, okay, that's your opinion I guess.
I said that most of what they pick up is perfectly suited to their style. Where did I say otherwise? I just know that a lot of people like some of their more experimental animation, a la SZS. Nisekoi hasn't did anything that looks different than Maria Holic/Arakawa so far.
All the Kagerou videos already sort of have their own unique flare, so seeing Shaft mess around with them should be a little bit different than staying really closely to the source material. Well, unless Jin and/or Shaft are lazy and decide to just adapt the manga.
Why should they adapt the adaptation of something?
Just the videos alone aren't leaving much for them to work with. If you honestly don't think they're adapt the LNs or the manga in one way or another you're crazy. I just don't want them copying exact reaction faces or anything like that.
They need to animate the ending to SZS. It's one of the most important shows in their history.
I like both.
I am anticipating inu curry doing the hideous phone strap, the naked sky people, backgrounds for the dreams, backgrounds for the 2 student classroom, backgrounds for the base, Momo becoming a cow, the snake cave, a ton of stuff in the wilderness, and maybe that fucking cat too.
BD release never
Monogatari's bitches just ain't manly enough. Madoka is manime of the highest caliber.
>dat shiteating grin
Good that they going for a more detailed anime character design than the simple MV artstyles.
>I am anticipating inu curry
Eh? Will they work on this shit?
Reminder that we will get in this Year another Season
They are an artsy studio that likes to pander to otaku and while thats all fine and dandy a lot of people formed a bandwagon fanbase for it after Bakemonogatari and Madoka aired. This of course was a recipe for disaster especially since many of them haven't seen any of the older shows. Since then the Shaft fanbase has been known for shit posting and praising Shinbo as a god.
Eagerly waiting for Hanamonogatari, unfortunately this means Kizu in 2015.
Just tossed the figures fom the DVDBD wiki into a chart. There's no surgical precision.
Don't lose your faith.
I'll be pissed if they don't.
Christ, I hope so. Kagerou is pretty huge so its a good opportunity for them. At the very least they'll have some sort of part in the OP or ED.
As much as I want Kizu, I'm craving some Kanbaru ASAP.
Kizu will come 2015 im sure
The only remarkable Kid Icarus short anime.
Hanamonogatari will feature Suruga Devil, Yotsuga Devil and Koyomonogatari or?
I don't really see why would they work on this, they only did stuff for Madoka and Hidamari xSP, the chances of Inu Curry working for SHAFT are just as small as always.
Did you combine Hidamari and Madoka?
All reasons posted in the thread are lies. People hate on shaft because it's popular.
We don't really have any info yet (if we have, I missed it then), as far as I know it's just a little continuation of Monogatari Series Second Season, so it'll probably be a few episodes featuring Suruga Devil.
Asumi, Hanekawa... we need Saito and the Shaft gang is complete.
I've been hoping that Sawashiro Miyuki will do Kido
And Sakura Ayane as Momo
I'd rather have Sakamoto do Kido.
Got into Shaft because of my vampire fetish. When I started watching anime I kept noticing Shaft popping up as the studio. Then I started watching their other stuff and I was hooked.
Favorites are SZS & PPD
This was pretty funny.
I wish the video quality would be better.
Going to download and watch Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei. Which subs are best?
Oh that would work remarkbly well aswell. Especially because of Kido's chuuni side
Well, next week should be Kido's PV, so we'll find out
I hope the next CMs show a little bit more.
I wish there was more widefaced Madoka (fan)art with the classic ||||_______|||| and O_____O, they're forgetting their origin.
only a handful people can do the wideface artstyle.
Don't think there really is a choice in the matter. No body wanted to translate it. Get what you can get.
Just use the one on bakabt
Why would it be Kido?
S1 - nonA
Zoku - suomynonA for 1-8, anon for 9 and volans for 10-13
Goku - gg
Zan - gg
Others - whatever you find
if it were to follow the same order as the CDs. First character-based song was Ene. Next is Kido
I don't hate them. They need to shake it up though. They should make a male fan service show.
More like the genderbent version of Monogatari.
Sasami made me cry a couple times.
Do people seriouly forgot Ef?
SHAFT is the only studio ever to make me truly vomit in disgust. IF a studio makes shows that literally make you vomit, it'\s best to avoid and hate them.
When we talk abotu SHAFT we're talking about Shinbo. Ef was not directed by Shinbo.
Dance in the Vampire Bund was ok.
I can't think of anything else they have made that is as ok.
I don't think you know what obese looks like if you say that. If anything, the model was slimmer than Hanekawa, who is actually pretty toned for a voluptuous girl. Too bad Shaft only showed it with Black Hanekawa.
Nah, we love it.
Because they have shit taste in chinese cartoons.
Pretentious garbage, mostly haremshit like the monogataris. I don't get why people gobble it up, it's horrendously repetitive and anticlimactic.
Madoka was decent, pretty much all the rest is shit.
Nisekoi is a slap into the face of every manga/anime lover, them adapting it is nothing short of massive trolling.
They should concentrate on more original work, instead they are just some kind of henchman for the biggest jerks in the industry.
They are literally killing anime.
Maybe OP should have clarified and written "decent people".
People who hate Twilight are usually quite fine, too, even though that drivel sells like hotcakes.
I don't hate them, but their visual and directing style is getting tiresome to look at. It doesn't work for every show and many of their recent shows contain a frustrating mix of interesting and bad directing. Also, they need to get their shit together in terms of production schedules.
