So here's something that has been on my mind for a while. According to these charts(and even the updated charts that I don't have) I.G, Madhouse and Bones are usually always considered "Top Tier" by /a/ after the threads have ended. So why is it these studio's never get circled jerked around here but a small studio like SHAFT is? KyoAni circle jerking is a little more understandable. They've made many, many more hits and their animation is typically fluid but they are never voted put in" Top Tier."
>>
>>101159743
Simple anon, culturefags here think that kyoani and shaft represent what anime as a whole is in this day and age more than anyone else. Which complete bullshit mind you.
>>
Getting circle jerked around isn't a sign of quality.

That chart is ridiculously outdated.
>>
>>101159743
>(and even the updated charts that I don't have)
I'd like to see the most updated chart myself.

But all signs seem to point to this.>>101159809
I.G, bones and madhouse fans don't have to make constant threads to remind people how great they were and still can be.

Think of it like this. You know how when an album or game gets aoty or goty on a website? All you do is see people bitching in the comment section how the wrong choice was made? Same principle here. When you've already won or you're already the best you don't have fans making constant reminders or bitching about it. They already know how great they are without forcing it down peoples throats.

So I guess you could say SHAFT and KyoAni fans are insecure.
>>
Madhouse haven't made a good show in years. I don't know why people overrate them so much.
>>
>>101160442
How do threads translate to insecurity? That's some massive stretch there, anon. When a show isn't talked about, it's usually of no interest or doesn't provide any content to talk about. And lacking the substance to sustain a lasting fanbase is a lot, but not a sign of quality.
>>
What kind of retard made this chart holy shit
>>
>>101159743
Because Madhouse and Bones don't have a distinctive style like Shaft and Kyoani do.
>>
>>101160505
Obviously you take Gainax way down. But I agree,definitely move madhouse down now.

Some studios like WIT and Trigger need to be added to mid tier

>>
>>101159935
>No white fox
>>
>>101161333
Anon that's not what he is talking about. Look at all their shows. Same art, same setting, really similar character designs. Their last really good anime was hyouka. It took all those things and did something unique with them.
>>
>>101159743
That's so outdated it's not even funny.
>>
Bones is shit though
>>
>>101161219
Madhouse isn't relevant and Ganiax is dead. Bones however has a huge year in front of them and I.G was arguably the most successful studio last year.
So I say you need to get caught up with things yourself
>>
>>101161619
Thy're shit at hiring good directors and writers. They have best animation talent on hand though.
>>
>>101161444
While I agree with some of that, people should stop using Hyouka as a reference. It was a masterpiece. To compare other shows to it and then say "meh, it's not as good as that" still makes shows pretty good. At least Chuuni falls clearly into that category, others may be debatable. And they should get points for branching out into different approaches, like recently with a male cast (Free) or a more serious approach (KnK). So they are in process of branching out and widening their approach.
Can't say much against the art, of course, which clearly is similar (with exception of Nichijou), but in how much this is a problem remains a subjective point of view IMO.
>>
>>101159935
10/10 Simply because of where Gainax is now.

>>101161662

Again, you don't know shit. They had Garganita and Psycho Pass last year as well. Both had 9k-10k averages, Both were originals on top of that. Then you have the GitS Arise OVA's. They performed well at the box office and both have sold 15k+ on dvds/blu-rays. Last but certainly not least is Kuroko 2.

So yeah, they did really fucking well.

Eva is done by Khara, Anno's personal studio.
GAINAX is dead.
>>
>>101162241
They've only really put out really mediocre adaptations recently after a bunch of their staff left for Trigger.
>>
>>101162473
The point to be made here was how successful they were last year. That's all. Which means they are staying very much relevant. They have a world wide movie coming out in the next month or 2.
>>
>>101162491

I took it as Gainax is still alive in part because of rebuild. Khara animates it but Gainax is still a partner when it comes to revenue are they not?

>>
>>101161444
>>101161981
A static staff will inevitably influence each other, and also thanks to this we have the top notch animation they give us. Keeping sort of similar character designs for each show doesn't really have to be bad, either, as it makes their shows distinguishable.

If Madhouse is so good then why can't finish Kon's last movie?
>>
>>101161069
>>101161228
This is basically why. It has nothing to do with the "quality" of the studios. Everything SHAFT makes looks the same. Everything KyoAni makes looks the same. You can look at those shows and say "Yeah, that's SHAFT/KyoAni".

There isn't much to clue you in that, for example, Gargantia and Psycho-Pass are the same studio, other than really the fact that IG likes making sci-fi stuff.

Then you have studios like Trigger that are recognizable just because the individual artists that make it up like Sushio are instantly recognizable.

Good direction doesn't mean anything to do with how something adapts a source material, does it?

If I adapted The Bible into a high school yuri anime, it could still have great direction - one scene of Ruth and Esther-chan holding hands might have great shots and flow well into the next - but it could still leave out source material or get it completely wrong.

The rushed part's fine.

Uh, just because they adapt lots of different kinds of stories doesn't mean their style isn't immediately recognizable. All of their shows feature a certain kind of fluid animation, powerpoint shit, HEADTILTS, and a notable reluctance to ever draw background characters. I'm not criticizing them, I'm just answering OP's question. SHAFT, KyoAni, and Trigger are big circlejerk targets because they're recognizable. The same thing applies to a lot of things. Anime composers, for example. Iwasaki and Sawano.

Dude ... the whole thread, as well as the original statement this particular discussion originated from, refers to the tier-level. Not to financial success. That's retarded and as has been pointed out already, would result in lowest-common-denominator garbage being an entry card into top-tier level just because it sells well. This should be about quality, not about money. If people think otherwise, it's a rather sad state of affairs.

It's because SHAFT and Kyoani have a fandom rivalry, so you can't mention studios without one of them getting up in arms about the other.
It only looks like circlejerking. In reality, it's just that their arguments are the loudest.

People fight about them a lot because they're both very influential studios with completely opposite styles and ideals.

I don't get why people get so angry over Shaft and Kyoani, I've liked and disliked shows by both studios.
>>
>>101166692
They basically don't exist now.
>>
Needs updating. Silver Link are already making a splash. I would expect them to at least qualify for HighTier by the end of the year.

>A1 and SHAFT are on level with fucking Xebec

Am I being rused?
>>
>>101168846
I know, right?
Xebec should be higher.
>>
>>101167518
I'm not a fan of Shaft and I disn't enjoy anything from them other than Madoka but I'll admit they have interesting artistic direction. Kyoani though is just so damn repetitive and they draw the worst faces.

Why does everyone leave off the TypeMoon studio? They are at least mid tier.
>>
>>101169095
>trigger in top tier when they really haven't done anything


I'm not falling for that mister
>>
>>101169095
>Trigger
>Top Tier
As good as LWA, Inferno Cop and Turning Girls were I'd wait at least until KlK is over and preferably after LWA2 before I put them into any tier.

>people unironically liking Trigger this much
Shit you kids are gay

>Made up of ex-Gainax staff
>Gainax was god-tier (see >>101159743)
>Now Gainax is dead (see >>101159935)
>All talent went to Trigger

It's not that hard to understand. Even if you hate KLK you can't deny that they're Gainax 2.0.
>>
>>101170363
Gainax sucks is the problem
>>
>>101170363
Gainax was liked because sometimes they had a budget. You can't be top tier without a budget unless you're Manglobe.
>>
>>101170363
The studios are rated by their portfolios, not their staff.

Trigger's portfolio couldn't be worse as of right now.
>>
>>101170270
I see nothing wrong with this. You could add Khara but there's not much point to that.
>>
>>101170270
Add White Fox to high tier, more Shaft to High and Brain's Base and Manglobe to mid.

Ta da~

Fate/Zero was animated beautifully but overall they're not that spectacular yet.

KnK was a pretty amazing accomplishment for a new studio.

>Shaft to High
>Manglobe to mid.

Oh what the fuck.

studio ranking charts are all bogus for the same reason recommendation charts are shit. they're always flooded with the kind of person who cries that anime is dying and only their favorite shows from the 90s are good. anyone that pays attention to currently airing shows can tell you madhouse hasn't made anything good in years and all of ig's recent attempts at hit shows have failed to meet expectations. at least people are finally starting to accept that gainax is dead.

>>101170363
Flawless logic right here.
