Remember when anime used to look good? Man, I miss those days.
Anime is better now. For starters, it's actually animated.
>Implying this is better.
Girls und Panzer is a far more entertaining show than Golgo, yes.
Not talking about show quality, I'm talking about the actual look of the shows, which is now terrible.
Blur everything and add a blue tint. There, it's as good as OP's pic.
>Garbage and grainy as fuck 480p with non-existent backgrounds.
>Quality 1080p with vibrant backgrounds and colour.
Not sure what you're getting at. If it's character design, then that's very subjective.
GuP looks amazing, I don't know what you're on about.
Yeah OP, every day I wish I could go back to blurry 10mb rmvb videos recorded on a gameboy color
Akira blew my mind when I first saw it.
It really has everything.
Appart from an ending that's not completely retarded.
I and my captcha miss them as well
Looks too clean. Older animation had style. The newer stuff is just too sterile.
Even this bait post is now obsolete with wizard barristers shitting up "good animation" with absolute shit story.
Let me help you with that.
I guess asians forgot what lighting was.
>Older animation had style
Im guessing you just mean the art style
Besides, it's called having a TV series budget anon
Modern films or non-series/manga bundle OVAs have significantly very high production values
Obviously the art style reflects contemporary trends
Every time you see these retarded threads some spastic compares 80s/90s OVAs with TV releases
It's a completely different scale
This thread is brought to you by the ghost of Paul "Otaking" Johnson, certified nostalgiafag and professional cherrypicker.
Every single shot has a crappy gradient background
So every bit of the budget is pumped into character detail leaving the world up to the viewers imagination
subpar shading/good animation > excellent shading/slideshow
The examples there ain't even modern anymore.
Some of that shit is over 10 years old.
What is Garden of Words.
You can literally see 40+ minutes of budget rapidly becoming god tier HD wallpapers
I love how this compares 80s OVAs to 00s TV animation and expects it to be a fair comparison. I wish I had the image on hand that completely debunks this notion.
>Older animation had style.
Newer stuff still has style you fuckwit.
>complex shading on mechanical objects=cool
>complex shading on people=disgusting
Makoto Shinkai and anything out of PA Works is pure scenery porn.
>Newer stuff still has style you fuckwit.
>Magical desu girl animu number 456 churned out
What is Kyousogiga?
What is Eccentric Family?
What is Kickheart?
Not every show can have a unique or different style and not every show is the same recycled bullshit. It's about the same as it was back in the 70s and 80s... no scratch that, it's better given that computers make it easier/cheaper to do stylistically different choices.
If there is any argument to be made here it is that cel coloring had a warmer and more organic feel than just fill-bucket in some software. I would agree with that, but face it nobody is going to spend their time painting images these days when you can click a button and fill all that instantly.
>Girls und Panzer is a far more entertaining show than Golgo, yes.
So much faggotry.
With such a little sentence.
Nostalgiafaggotry is retarded, especially when you can list no specific examples and only spout generalizations.
I sure do love otaking threads.
>cel coloring had a warmer and more organic feel
I feel like this is a more applicable complaint to early 00s digipaint stuff, which really did look bad and hasn't aged well, than the stuff we get in recent years.
Good digital colouring trumps good cel colouring any time. The likes of Blood TLV, FLCL, My Neighbour The Yamadas, Dennou Coil, and Hyouka are coloured digitally, yet they have very appealing visuals.
>but face it nobody is going to spend their time painting images these days when you can click a button and fill all that instantly.
The studio that does WuG still does.
Some background art studios still paint by hand, like Studio Pablo.
It's just a matter of taste. And of course digital coloring can be done well when effort is put into a scene.
If we're talking about background art then I imagine most studios still paint by hand. I'm talking about the characters and animation.
>Some guy assassinates some other guy by shooting him for 50 episodes with little animation and what animation there is is all reused
It's shit, m8.
more like gaynime now
Anime lost it's grit
Everything now looks clean and pretty like it was processed through adobe flash maker
KLK is the grittiest anime out right now
GitS still has the best background porn.
Fuck 5 boring wallpapers per second.
Golgo 13 enjoys fucking a lot and killing a lot
What the fuck is the point of putting that much detail into animation holy shit.
that's a still background, learn the difference
It's better now. but there are too many adaptations
I know that, I mean it's so pretty and you'll only look at it for 5 seconds during the movie. Why poor so much time an effort into it?
It's worse now, and there are too many adaptions
Advertisements for the manga/light novel or advertisements for the robot toys. Take your pick, because that's largely what now and then boils down to.
Yeah, I remember.
Yeah, why would they bother making something good? Fucking idiots. Stuff like that makes me sick.
>Anime lost it's grit
Grain wasn't intentionally put there, you know. Your complaint about new things is just not valid - rather than things being processed, you're seeing what they actually look like. If film had no grain, cel animation would look similar to modern stuff.
Here we go again.
It was better without the standardizing
What is row 5, column 2 of right now?
Plus you don't have to color correct digipaint like you did with film or put up with cel layering shadows.
Why is Space Brothers so beautiful?
Looks like Break Blade.
I think the only episodes that actually looked good were during the moon incident.
>anime used to look good
>blurry as fuck SD screenshot
Who's that semen demon on the right from?
Balalaika's presence just scares me
Monster Girl Quest OVA
Good lord that is a sexy background.
Anime now is all just crappy CG.
I've just become so used to creators cutting corners to save money that when they don't, it's strange. That's kind of a shame actually.
That CGI is actually pretty decent
God damn, why do you cherry picking retards make these threads.
