>Studio Ghibli just announced its first ever TV series, and even more exciting it’s an adaptation of a book by Astrid Lindgren. “Sanzoku no Musume Ronja”, or “Ronja the Robber’s Daughter”, will be aired in Japan starting on August 31. It is a coproduction with 3DCG studio Polygon Pictures (known for animating some of Ghost in the Shell, among others), to be directed by Goro Miyazaki. More details are forthcoming.
Studio Ghibli Anime?
Ghibli is making a TV anime just like they made a video game.
I was excited and then
Anyone who's got the urge to watch this, do yourself a favor and just pick up Romeo no Aoi Sora instead.
It's the future of anime, anon.
GHIBLI SAVING ANIME
Well. Well. Well well well. Well. Shit.
I'm not watching a show made by an anti-otaku shiter.
>Directed by Goro
I have a feeling Hayao's comments today are a direct result of this.
well... ghibli was dead since terramar
this is like goro raping a dead body.
I almost feel bad for him. It must be tough being such a stubborn fuckup and have your genius dad blast you to the press for your shamefur disprays.
>Ronja Räubertochter show by Ghibli
Looks like Ghibli wants to help Madhouse save anime.
Is it still cool to hate Goro?
Poppy Hill was good and Earthsea wasn't honestly that bad for a directorial debut from someone who had very little expertise in the animation field.
So it's going to be the exact same plot they've been rehashing for the last 15 years right?
Not with garbage like Mahou Sensou.
>Poppy Hill was good
I wasn't initially on the Goro hatetrain, but that movie was so bad it put me there.
Normalfags in Japan will watch this, but they don't buy dvds and bds, so it will be a flop despite being popular
>Ghibli doing Lindgren
>Ghibli will never be a full OVA adaption of the Naussica manga
It's being funded by NHK (tax-payers).
It doesn't matter if it flops.
I don't mind the occasional crap as long as they continue making stuff like Tatami Galaxy or Chihayafuru.
An anime (by Ghibli) that has significant potential. Typical of /a/, they've already divined a reason to boycott it, like they do everything good.
Earthsea may have been shit, but if you didn't like Poppy Hill, go fuck yourself.
>Ghibli will never do a full OVA series adaption of the Naussica manga
HxH is saving anime
It won't flop. It's Ghibli.
Plus I imagine it to be a big success in yurop.
The reason people don't like the sound of it is the director. Thats a pretty fucking big reason. Also most fuckers here pick up next to everything that comes out every season anyway.
How was it bad?
yeah, but Earthsea was directed by Goro. That should tell you something, friend.
It's not by Ghibli, it's by Polygon Pictures.
Madhouse doesn't give a shit about Mahou Shitsou, just look at how many QUALITY it's in the fucking show
I suppose Miyazaki is really retiring after this. He hated CG so if he stays in Ghibli he would be contradicting himself.
How did he feel about Ni no Kuni?
Was Ni no Kuni a shit?
It´s just a game so i suppose he didnt care so much.
It's the future. He can't stop it. Sooner or later they had to start doing CGI.
They should make a movie about an old man fighting the future and technology.
that video games aren't art like his animations are
Pacing was awful. The progression of the I-love-you-oh-no-we're-related-oh-wait-we're-not-happy-end developments was so ill-timed and devoid of emotion that it totally ruined what could have been a great setup for dramatic tension by blowing the secret halfway through and in a supremely uninteresting way.
Characters had weak or no development. Umi is a total cypher. Shun is a watered-down version of the love interest in Whisper of the Heart. Even the nameless Quartier Latin guys are way more interesting.
No cinematographer's eye. Dull, uninteresting angles on everything, even where there should be an exciting cityscape or a dramatic view of the sea.
Soundtrack: not Hisaishi/10.
The Quartier Latin scenes were seriously the only enjoyable part. The movie's time would have much better been spent on them rather than boredom trip to Tokyo and all the dramatic handwringing about "muh fammleeeee".
It's not shit, it's a big ball of wasted potential, and that is somehow even worse.
Replace old man with girl raised by wolves, and you've pretty much got Princess Mononoke.
Ghibli's involvement in this project will likely be limited to background art/art direction and nothing more. Crediting it to Ghibli is stupid.
It's okay except for the frustratingly retarded party AI.
No, but the battle system is sort of meh. Can't comment on it entirely, since I only just got my second party member.
It's sort of like real-time pokemon, in that you capture evolvable monsters from generic mobs as your primary fighters.
Speaking of Hisaishi.
I recently saw Departures (Okuribito). Such a great movie.
I need to see that. Dear Doctor, which was IIRC by the same guy, was unexpectedly good and quite funny.
I don't usually dislike their works, but I don't feel any particular attachment towards any of them, either.
Oh shit, I didn't recognize Hisaishi's work meanwhile but that movie was great.
As a swede, I'm really not looking forward to this. People will never shut up about it, because that author is basically the fucking deity of this country, and no one will admit to the fact that Finland beat us by creating the Moomins.
>loli feet pandering
ill watch it
Nowadays you can't do shit without making someone get a fucking boner
I wrote it wrong or something?
No the world has just always been like that
Since the dawn of time, everything gives someone a boner.
The thing you have right at your side this exact moment, no matter what it is: Someone gets off to that.
what the fuck? fuck this shit. why why why.
They'll make movies out of it but they'll all be directed by Anno
Meh. Madhouse has literal mountains of shit under their belt that they never cared about. For every Madhouse gem, there's about 10 pieces of shit that they used to fund it.
