Probably Hyouka

But I think all KyoAni shows are shit and Hyouka's still shit

I wouldn't say it's the best, but it's the last above average, or even good show they've put out. Hell, the last Kyoani show I could even watch all the way through was Chuu2's first season and it just got worse as it went on.

My favorites are Disappearance and Hyouka, and I do really love the rest. KnK is terribly underrated, and people expected too much from Tamako Market, but both are pretty good for what they are.

A bit more about KnK: the art and animation really were fantastic, I don't know how people dare say it was soulless or subpar. It's definitely one of their top 3 best looking TV shows after Hyouka and Nichijou. I mean look, even an egg looks so realistic. And the action animation was fantastic too.

That episode was left-field feels.
Totally natural though. A show which is all happy fuwa fuwa times, but right near the end, bam!, tearful scene that isn't forced at all.
K-ON is such a good adaptation.

Haruhi had the best writing.

>>102223516
The action was very bad most of the time and It set up stuff and did not deliver, I actually liked the first few episodes a lot and I just felt let down by the end.

>>102223651
I beg to differ. KnK's action scenes had better effects animation and choreography(not to mention a lot more action scenes in general). Chuu2's mostly had some neat effects, but that's about it.
>>
Hyouka is probably their best overall TV series, but I'll always have a soft spot for After Story.

Disappearance is brilliant but I hate comparing TV series and movies.
>>
>>102223785
I'd say After Story is easily their best TV series.

Their best work all in all is probably Disappearance though.

I'm still surprised how without fanfare about six months after Hyouka ended, all the divisiveness and hate it got while it aired was forgotten and /a/ uniformly decided that it was a work on par with KyoAni's best.
It tooks several weeks into the show before the "Hyouka is so boring I fell asleep" shitposting was outweighed by people who actually liked the show. Maybe around the movie arc. There was still a lot of negativity for a while later, at least until spring season ended and Hyouka suddenly because one of the only things /a/ liked to talk about during the legendarily shitty Summer 2012 season.
And of course, everyone raged positive or negative about the ending for days and days. It didn't get drowned out by other finales because it aired weeks before the end of the season.
But as I said, somehow in 2013 or so everyone grouped together and decided that Hyouka was a true masterpiece, and I simply wonder where these people were when it aired.
>>
>>102226383
>There isn't an anime in existence more lively than Hyouka
You insult Oreki with your opinion
>>
>>102226399

That's another huge fault of the show. The pacing was fucking terrible. They had an overall arc in place the entire time, but then they just rush to throw everything at you in two episodes and expect you to care about every single bit of new information.

It was really stupid. I have nothing against the show doing fun stuff, the idol episode is the only I'll ever go back and actually watch again, but pandering for a second season based off its endless cliffhangers was just cheap. Not to mention the only thing that could've actually given it some intrigue for a second season was ruined in that horrible fucking ending.

At least the cat girl was cute.
>>
>>102226538
Even he was lively by the end, but I meant the world of the anime.

Which works perfectly to contrast and amplify Oreki's beliefs.

Just because you wanted fight scenes 100% of the time and you didn't get them it doesn't mean the pacing was bad. There was always something going on, be it character development, world building, fights, you name it. The thing about KnK is that most of the developments happen inside the characters' mind, so it may seem like nothing happens because it isn't narrated directly to the viewer, but there are hints here and there about what is going on at the time, but sadly people decided to dismiss these hints and foreshadowing because they thought to themselves 'KyoAni doesn't have the experience in the genre to make it work' and called it bad writing.

>Just because you wanted fight scenes 100% of the time and you didn't get them it doesn't mean the pacing was bad.

I just said that I liked when the show had fun, not even that, but I said nothing that would even imply me wanting nonstop fights. This isn't what I expected of the show, I expected something worth watching, but it never was. It was always gorgeous to watch the animation and all that, but it built a very shallow world with incredibly one dimensional people that only showed the slightest bit of depth when it was convenient to push whatever story they thought they were building.

Not that guy but I didn't want fight scenes all the time. I just wanted something reasonably interesting and that was the worst fault of KnK. The characters were incredibly uninteresting so it was difficult to care for them at all.

>>102226781
If you already watched the series and are rewatching it to see if the character development I'm talking about is a myth, then the first three episodes should be enough to convince you that what matters is inside the characters' minds. and, who knows, maybe you'll actually be interested in it this time around. Or you could just watch episode 5 and try to get inside Mirai and Mitsuki's mind.

If this is the first time watching and you already know that there are things going on behind what meets the eye, then I'm not sure you're gonna get hooked, but let me just tell you that episode 4 is pretty good and should be enough closure for you if you decide to drop it.

Yeah, I think the festival arc, and the Oreki-and-Chitanda-locked-in-a-shed story shut up the haters if any of them were still watching at that point.
That was well over halfway through though.
There were so many people who were dropping it by the 3-episode rule (I remember that rule being more popular back then, probably because Madoka).

It's funny that a show with 0 professional anime script writer like Hyouka is better than most KyoAni shows that were written by high-profile professional writers.

>characters were incredibly uninteresting
This comment irritates me every time I see it, and I see it quite often, as people say it about Hyouka and KnK every time they're discussed. I didn't find them uninteresting and don't see why I should, so I really wish someone would try explaining it.
>>
>thread made me want to listen to Hyouka OST

Also, I'd have Disappearance above Hyouka and then Nichijou I guess

>>102227727
It's always easier to explain why someone finds a character interesting than why they find a character uninteresting. In this case, the characters of KnK were so bland for me that I can't really explain it, as nothing really stood out for me. They weren't even irritating so I have nothing bad to say about them; I just felt nothing for them.

I found the Hyouka characters very well-fleshed out and human on the other hand. You could really tell what each characters believes in and it reflects heavily on their actions throughout the series. By the end, I felt like I really got to know the cast of Hyouka and thought they were all beautiful people.

I really wish I could say the same for Kyoukai no Kanata but the characters were really flat.
>>
>>102227727
That's the generic insult when they have nothing better

When did Hyouka hook you? For me, it was the conclusion of the movie mystery.

The main character's failure and straw grasping was one of the most human things about the show. Though I wish everything after the kanya festival would've kept with the "natural talent" theme.

It's the song that plays when Oreki solves something, they use it so many times I don't know it's buried so deep in the OST. I'll find it eventually
>>
>>102228039
I'm not sure about the rest of the characters, but there's a single reason why Mirai is interesting to some people and uninteresting to others: her acts were being influenced by two different motivations. Some people may have thought it was inconsistency, and some might have looked into it a bit more. Mirai acted out of obligation sometimes (Izumi's influence) and sometimes she took her own decisions, which contradicted what Izumi wanted her to do so it seemed inconsistent.
Aki does have many problems too, but he just lives trying to deal with them by not paying attention to them.

She was uninteresting to me because her actions were almost entirely motivated by the plot rather than any individual characteristics that felt unique to her. I don't think I could describe the personality of anyone in Kyoukai no Kyoukai nearly as well as the main cast of Hyouka. It's not a matter of inconsistency; Kyoukai no Kyoukai was a coherent story but one with very hollow characters.

Hyouka is the correct answer for worst Kyoani. Everything about it is better than any of Kyoani's other works.

KnK is probably the worst although I still liked it.
>>
>>102228974
You sound confused.
>>
>>102228920
I know I can't force you to do anything, but I also can't change the way you think without this: If you ever feel like giving the show a second chance, rewatch it and do pay attention to how the characters feel. They really had another level to them behind their clumsy/fetishist/bitch facades. Of course if you don't want to I'm just going to step out of the conversation because I don't feel I can convince you without that.

I haven't watched a lot of Kyoani stuff but whatever.

Haruhi had fun moments, some dumb ones, and some great ones, but Endless Eight was a blight and I can't really excuse it.
Disappearance sort of stands on it's own as the real crowning moment of it (which is funny, because it's like that in the LN too), and is pretty much perfect, except maybe a little long.
LS and K-ON were pretty dull and never really worked on the comedy or SOL levels. K-ON had a few good moments towards the ending.

Nichijou was definitely top tier. Varied types of comedy from slapstick to dry, amazing and energetic animation, and voice acting that really brought the characters and setting to life, and with a feelgood SOL packaging with it's focus on friends and family. And is set apart from LS and K-ON by not just being lots of conversations. It's definitely my favourite show by them, and one of my favourites ever.

Hyouka was also fantastic, also one of my favourites. It's funny that it's a total opposite of Nichijou in nearly every way by being very serious, having very realistic designs and animation, being a "low-energy" SOL, and having no comedy, but is still just as good. Shows their potential range when they were at their best. Takemoto continues his great directing style from Disappearance (except with blues and greys being replaced by greens and browns, with some purple for Chitanda), has a great MC, atmosphere, themes that I personally enjoyed, characters that you really do get to know more through the course of the show with subtle development, very impressive and intricate enough animation to express them well, and a perfect ending. Shame it's only 22 episodes.

I admit I dropped most of these: Chuu2, Tamako, Free, and KnK are all quite flawed, either on the writing or production quality level, and sometimes both. They seem to be getting into a routine of being able to balance or pace their "filler" and "drama" aspects of the scripts which harms what might be better shows.
>>
>>102227554

After a few episodes of getting used to the characters, I was honestly laughing throughout most of the episodes. I can only think of maybe 1 or 2 skits I didn't care for.
>>
>>102229117
Convincing the other person that you're right shouldn't be the goal of a discussion; it's better to go into a conversation with the intention to learn and share thoughts rather than attempt to homogenize opinions to match yours.

I can't say I would ever want to revisit Kyoukai no Kanata, with the backlog always increasing and all that; the first watch left too much of a sour taste. It's good to see someone appreciate the characters at least.

If would like to explain though, how would you describe any of the characters that aren't Mirai or Akihito?
>>
>>102228139

The first scene with the hair growth got me fascinated, and then the first arc itself because I love history and the fact that they dug up some old taboo story was great, especially when they were all at Chitanda's house talking it over. It was just a glimpse of their characters, but I liked it enough to keep watching.

Well, I think Mitsuki is pretty bored with her life. Ironic, since it's pretty eventful, but maybe she just wants to be a normal girl instead of having to watch over Akihito in case he goes berserk. Mirai helps out with this in episode 5, that was a good episode for Mitsuki.

Ai is just a cheerful girl, not too much about her. We don't know much about Ayaka either. Izumi and Fujima have lots of room for development, if we get a second seasons it's most likely going to be about them. Hiroomi started developing near the end of the show so we don't know much about him either.
Another character that could use some focus is Aki's mom, there are plenty of questions about her that weren't answered.
>>
>>102228139
I was one of the detractors for the first five episodes. Hyouka definitely had some very noticeable flaws, and particularly so in the beginning. The mysteries didn't have to be great but some of them were terrible; the I Scream thing comes to mind. At that point, I dropped it and dismissed it as style over substance.

However, I recently came back to it and I'm glad that the rest of the series is much much better than the introduction. I got hooked in the middle of the movie mystery solving. It was an refreshing take on mystery solving and it was then I realized just how thorough the characters are being developed. It really did turn out to be one of KyoAni's better works.

They tried to reach for the big bucks using amatuer writing. All their recent work has been more or less generic trash since Hyouka. KyoAni needs higher standards for their writing contests. They should tell all the participants that they all suck and none of them are up to par.
>>
>>102226563
I don't see anything wrong at all with the pacing. It was often a rather textbook example of smooth transitioning between changes in pace, it had the breather period after the first third, the filler episode fit in there nicely (though it's debatable if it wouldn't have been better to cut it out and make that bonus episode 13), I do see people getting thrown of between 10/11, but I wouldn't call it an objective flaw in pacing - rather a debatable decision to cut back that much. A slowing down at that point is absolutely common, though, before gearing up for the final confrontation. A difference is that here the danger seemed to have vanished, when usually it remains present. So there's room for complaints, but compared with often massive flaws in other shows it's nothing that warrants a description of "fucking terrible".
Also, you kinda contradict yourself by claiming "pandering for a second season based on endless cliffhangers" and then right away state that Mirai's possible return didn't serve as a cliffhanger. If she didn't come back, you'd dismiss her as another "pandering for another season" and if there were no cliffhangers you'd complain there's nothing that could "give intrigue for a second season". It's a prime example how this show will be criticized no matter what it does.
You preferring the idol episode gives some clue that maybe KnK wasn't the show for you. Your disappointment might cloud your judgment a bit.

Yeah, stupid Kyoanus, why don't they make a show like Hyouka every season?
And while we're at it, why doesn't every studio just put out good stuff all the time? Can't be that hard now, can it?
That said, I had no big problems with Chuu2 and KnK, so I'm quite happy they made them. Especially KnK, since it is a move away from their usual fare. I do hope they continue down that way and get into more serious/darker territory instead of the n-th school club SoL (yes, even if it's a second Hyouka). I hope they achieve an output that they can serve one as much as the other demographic.

Compared to what? Hyouka? Nichijou? Chuu2? Tamako? Free?
It had teens getting manipulated by adults to kill each other. Yeah, they didn't in the end, but this is quite darker and more serious than all the recent stuff. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy other shows as well, I would just like to see something a tad more different from KyoAni. Cue "edgy faggot", "shounenshit", whatever. All tastes are shit anyway.

Speaking of which, is the Little Busters anime adaptation good? I'm in the middle of reading the VN right now, so I was thinking about downloading it and watching it after I've finished.
>>
I liked Nichijou most, though Haruhi and FMP were excellent and K-ON and Hyouka were great. All the Key adaptions were top class representations of their VNs. I've yet to watch KnK or Chuuni but will probably do so in the future.

Hyouka was awesome as those little details was worth it.
Can't wait for the next takemoto and Gatou project is as good as this
>>
Im not really a fan of having discussions about best shows from an anime studio because comparing manga, LN and VN adaptions can be pretty challenging.

Objectively you can say that X show is better than Y show for so and so reason but when X show is an adaptation where do you give credit to the studio and where do you give credit to the source material?

Nichijou is a hilarious show but how much of the hilarity can you attribute to Kyoani when they are just taking the jokes and animating them onto the screen?
>>
>>102232023

I think a studio with less money and animation talent would do a much blander and half-assed job.
>>
>>102222514
So much this
>>
>>102232210
Of course but at the same time when a show is good how much of that is because it has well written characters and a well told story and how much of it is because the animation is beautiful and the voice actors do a really good job?
>>
>>102232525

How much of an improvement on the TV rip is the Hyouka BD's?

I remember being extremely impressed with the visuals of the TV rip as it aired, and I'm wondering if it's worth rewatching it in my TV rip or download the BDs.

Also, best KyoAni is K-On! series. Not many other shows have I gotten so emotionally invested in.
>>
>>102233832
They literally changed things that were only a few pixels wide. There wasn't much to fix. I don't have the comparison images, but they are amusing.
>>
>>102233946
>>102233832
However, the series really benefits from 1080p because it was super HD and some scenes and the OP/EDs are actually in 1080p.

So it is still worth watching the BD version if you have 1080p screens.

Hyouka was one of the last series I watched before my long 3 or 2-year hiatus of anime. I guess I could call it the last straw; the breaking point. I think I just got tired of the typical MC (he is pretty chill, i admit), gag-inducing moe characters, the "humor", etc. I lasted until episode 6, just so I can finish the arc about her uncle and never continued it or watched any anime after.

To be honest, the art is pretty good though.

But it aired a little over a year ago. That doesn't make sense.

Unless you're for some reason visiting /a/ despite not watching anime.
>>
>>102236594
I really can't remember when Hyouka started airing or when I watched it. Was it 2011 or 2012? All I remember is it's the last series I watched and I realized I'm really tired of all the "cuteness" in most anime that feels forced to me.

I do feel bad so I may give it a chance again, especially after knowing it's good. Anime just feels.. really typical or tiresome lately.
>>
>>102236767
Maybe you yourself has just changed?

It's perfectly fine to move on and pick up another hobby or form of entertainment. Live your own life and enjoy it how you want, don't feel you have to watch this amount of shows so that you can fit in with an online imageboard. I can't agree with you on your statement that anime feels forced or tiresome. Just do what you want, man.
