Gen'ichirou Abe is back.
He is the character designer for the incoming Mekaku City Actory anime by Shaft.
I expect he will also work as chief animation director.
Who is going to be the next character design released? Will it go boy girl boy girl?
>Gen'ichirou Abe is back
He's always been active.
Call me when Iso and Ryo Imamura came back.
>Abe wasting his talent on this shit
busy with Kizumonogatari.
A dead man can't come back.
inb4 Shaft fucks up the scheduling for Mekaku City Actors
But KagePro isn't shit
It is already saturday?
They always do, nothing they don't always fix in the BDs.
I fucking wish.
>This season is so bad that 9 15 second CMs are one of the things I most look forward to watching every week
Well, Japan likes the anime design.
Looks like Momo is now in the middle of the character section...
>Momo confirmed for MC
Momo got to be the MC for a few chapters of the manga, I guess.
12 episodes Idol antics
Is it more common for an idol to be solo or part of a group?
That doesn't answer the question
For some reason I find it annoying.
When I saw this I got hype.
So will it suck just like BRS?
Nah, this has fairly decent source material behind it. And the characters aren't all unlikeable cunts.
And the anime should make the fanbase happy at least because Jin is heavily involed in the anime project.
She is the author's self-insert after all(what with all the "sudden popularity I can't handle" thing).
I wonder if they'll make Shion look less like Irisviel.
Why would they?
Actually, they should add Saber and Kiritsugu cameos just to drive the joke home.
Is Mary a cuter version of Illya?
>Mary and Shion looking at a picture book
>It has a drawing of Saber in it
They only look alike when both in younger form.
With Abe as competent character designer there is hope that the male characters doesn't end as cheap bishonen characters.
There are only really 2 characters that can really be classified as anything close to bishie. But yeah, with Abe in charge I doubt it'll come to that.
Since this is SHAFT, who is Kamiyan going to voice? Seto or Kano? Or maybe even Shintaro?
... I'll watch it.
SHAFT schooling a certain studio again.
Gen Abe >>>>>> I***d**e
I say Kano or Shintaro. Kano more likely, someone like Ryota Ohsaka is more fitting for Shintaro
Is that some Miku?
Next will be Mary.
Because SHAFT will be an ass for the next 2 weeks releasing CMs with characters whose voice actors has been revealed before (mary, konoha).
When is pic related's turn?
If you use the filename for the other characters you will get the MV designs.
The hell are you doing here Miku? This is anime. You don't have anime.
Last I checked Miku had feet
I must be dreaming.
If they're the mekakushi-dan why don't they all wear blindfolds

Objectionable content: Significant
Yes, we know.
I'll only watch this for Haruka.
>Objectionable content: Significant

The plot seems like something a 14 year old would come up with, but anyway.
I don't see best girl there
The only way to summarize KagePro is to do it in a terrible way that sounds generic like >>101023501 or spoil more or less everything.
That's a very cute voice. Not what I imagined but still extreamly cute.
I try to not get spoiled, but a quick google search showed me that Haruka is best boy.
At least it's not a harem where every girl suddenly begged for MC's almighty cock.
Also, the fact that the anime follows a different time (and plot) line with the novel and manga, will keep away novel and mangafags from spoiling shit here.
>if I compare it with the worst possible plot, people might believe it's good
Really, I thought of similar stories when I was 14, they can do better than that.
Sure, you did.
Bert lookalikes are always best boys, it can't be helped.
>Miyano is voicing Haruka
How is this going to work anyways?
Miyano can work it out, I believe it will fit.
Necrophilia is bad anon...
You haven't read the source material aren't you?
I have, in fact.
My opinion is still the same.
I'll still watch it and probably enjoy it, but that doesn't mean that I'll ignore every single flaw it has.
No series is perfect anyway.
You. I like you.
Abe does some really sick anatomical work, I'll be looking forward to this
if they did it would be just like the old days
I miss the old SHAFT ;_;
When was the last time you remember seeing a blackboard joke?
Shaft schedules are still less than stellar.
Oh yeah? Well Actually, I am the one who haven't read the source material.
You know, at first I thought this Mekaku City Actor anime is pretty meh, but the design looks really cool. Picked up.
What a tweest.
This conversation went in an interesting way
I didn't expect her voice to be so kawaii uguu, I'm pretty disappointed actually, since the pitch is annoying.
Well Ene is supposed to be genki AI, that kind of voice would be expected.
Now Takane on other hand..
There was also a CM with her where Kana Asumi didn't use her genki voice.
So ENE = nyaruko, while takane = blanc ?
Why not make Miku voice all of them?
>dat video quality
i just picked the first versions that I saw.
They have gotten a lot better, at very least, they have only outsource only one or two episodes in total in 2013.
So what is Gen'ichirou Abe actually known for?
Being one of Shaft's few animators than can actually animate.
I totally forgot how long that Negima falling scene was.
It's a really fucking great long shot
Which one, the skydiving one, the kissing one or both?
Wasn't both the same scene? skydiving kiss scene?
There are two, the one at 2:30 is from the OVA (IIRC, the whole part is 59 seconds long) and the one after that (3:20) is from the TV (139 seconds long).
How big is this?
You probably know it better by the name Kagerou Days
It didn't explode into popularity that music video got released
