"That's why I like working in Japan, where animation writing is taken seriously."

>where animation writing is taken seriously
That's only true for a few great studios.
>I think one show that does this well is My Litttle Pony. Their stories are still relevant & enjoyed by outside the target demo
Animation will be taken seriously in every studio, but to a different standard. Whether it's a commercial or artistic standard, or mixture of the two, it's still taken seriously in a manner of speaking.
I think this is a fair point, and I say that as someone who followed the 3-episode rule and decided I wasn't interested.
>That reference to Nana Project
>mfw it was just Pachislot
kyoani have done good things but should die now
shaft aren't my thing but I have respect for them, because instead of making something 100% new they're taking the old staples and turning them on their centers. except for when they dial it in all the time.
Why does it have to be a competition between them? They are both really, really, really gay
It's still more interesting than anything KyoAni's ever produced.
>because instead of making something 100% new they're taking the old staples and turning them on their centers
u wot m8
I can't really remember another magical girl show that wasn't happy go lucky all the time. except princess tutu. but even that wasn't as dark I feel.
Maybe he was just taking into account that it's pretty hard to balance a staple on its side and that the slightest air current would tip it over.
Why is SHAFT so good?
>original in any way
>characters not generic bullshit
Someone will screencap this and post it in all Space Dandy and Za Fool threads.
