>There are people on /a/ who actually like SHAFT
Shaft is one of the few consistently good studios.
Consistently good at fucking up their production schedules, that's for sure.
>Neko Mimi Modo
>Sayonata Zetsubou Teach
>EF Tale of 2
>Sugoi Monogatari series
They have a lot of great material under their belt, plus, i've noticed at least on the Monogatari and Madoka BluRays, it's actually material higher than 720p and not just a 720p upscale to 1080p, not to mention the insane ammount of fixes and retouches and even new scenes.
>no Delusion Hippies Under the Bridge
>insane amount of fixes and retouches
It's not a good thing if a studio can't get it right on their first attempt.
You're just mad you have no neck
ur mom likes the shaft lmao
Well fuck me with a sawoff shotgun. I know i left out some, but that one wasn't an intentional omission.
with tight weekly schedules shit doesn't always come out as well as possible, beats bluray version that are exactly the same shit from TV without the TV channel logo doesn't it? Also it adds value and motivation to actually purchase the BluRays for fans who already watched the aired version
>making things better is bad
Why do you speak with entitlement? Have you ever paid money to see a SHAFT show on TV?
SHAFT doesn't fuck up the first time, they simply hold themselves to a higher standard of quality for BD and with good reason.
I DO like SHAFT.
What is everyone's favorite studio?
It's a waste of manpower fixing mistakes on the blu-ray since the staff could've been used for current projects instead and even not all the BD changes are for the better for some reason. It's puzzling why Shaft can't just do a good job the first time around for the TV broadcast.
>There are subhumans on /a/ who dislike SHAFT and create threads to tell others to stop liking things

They are still around 720p, only the last Madoka movie animated a few scenes in 1080p but that's using a movie budget, they won't do it for a TV show.
>There are SHAFT on people who actually like /a/
shaft is pretty good
I want to ask... are you talking from experience or out of your ass? Because you might be speaking prematurely if you have never worked on weekly broadcast animated series. I certainly haven't, but quality issues show up in more than just SHAFT shows..
I love me some shaft, and they do do touch ups and stuff, but they also make the weirdest edits to their BDs.
For example, here. They added in a black screen.
I can't tell you numbers, but when BluRay rips come around i always download the first episode of both 720p and 1080p versions (if the show doesn't already look obviously blurry), take screenshots on the exact same time/frames and compare them thoroughly. The screenshots are usually picked so i can distinguish details in the distance and how defined are details amist similarly coloured patterns, and i can assure you, Madoka's TV series and Monogatari can't just be around 720p as the difference switched from blur to crisp way too clearly.
Can't show loli grabbing on Christian homes!
I found Madoka to be quite average, but the monogatari series is simply the bee's knees
I liked arakawa and denpa onna
tried Bakemono and was bored to tears. I also didnt like how their are never any actual structures in the city and everything is just shapes. It's really off putting for me.
I didnt like Madoka and so I didnt chdeck out the movies.
Bee a shit though.
Sayonara Zetsubou San is good enough reason for me if I didn't like their other shows too.
>/a/ bashes shaft in one thread
>circle jerks over KLK in another
/a/ is on Shaft's shaft more often than bashing it. There's just a loud cadre of haters, much as there is also a group of very vocal KlK haters.
Yeah, the majority of modern anime is animated between 720p and 955p, so it can be tough to tell just by looking. Personally, I don't give a shit--there is so much more to animation quality than the resolution.
KyoAni did the K-ON! Movie at full 1080p and draw their shows at 955p with 1080p OP/ED, but other than that not many shows actually reach modern HD. Even Rebuild is drawn at 720p, with the effects done at 1080p.
>implying they have anything to do with one another
>implying theyre not two different situations
Trigger has no budget and still has some good animated scenes in there so you know they could do good stuff with a better budget.
SHAFT looks good, but their intentional low detail stuff, 3 frames an episode and head tilt head tilt two lines of dialogue head tilt are annoying. Arakawa is the only show I can tolerate it in becasue the comedy and characters work, and in the rare chance theres an episode they dont, the seiyuu cast is godlike
anything that is early shaft is alright, monogatari is an acquired taste and not for everyone (me included)
It's pretty brilliant, though. It might be cringe inducing, but you'll know you're watching a SHAFT show the second you spot it. Might not be very relevant to us on /a/, but I believe it has some inpact in Japan where people could come across it on TV by accident.
Most of their seiyuu casts are godlike.
But yeah they really don't know how to spread out animation, like the beginning of Nisekoi's well-animated cooking scene followed by their usual visual stuff.
How close of a 1:1 adaptation is monogatari? I would read the LN's but they're barely translated
It's closer than most adaptions across media, and moreso as far as anime is concerned. They often use split-second frames of text to make up for time constraints where they had to skip material, and they don't deviate from events in the LNs. Comedy and wordplay is where things deviate most often, but they do a good job and anime-only jokes are up to par with the LN stuff. Also, 90% of the sexuality comes from the LNs. There are a few unnecessary tits/ass shots in Nise and that's about it.
>There are people on /a/ who actually care what OP thinks
Oh wait no there aren't
