to be fair, kyoto animation does really high-quality work on a technical level. it's just that their source material is always so bad. i wish they'd do an original show, but i'm not sure they have anybody with interesting ideas beyond "so there's this girl otaku"

lulz aside from Ghibli and 4C, the other studios should be thrown into mid-tier as well.

Most animation studio for all their shit has also shows that define them. It's just a question of WHEN it shines most for them compared to another. Just cause GAINAX and BONES shine RECENTLY because of G-L and STRANGER didn't make the fact that they did mediocre shows a few years back vanish.

>>11295570
i'm afraid you don't understand the concept that there may be truth, and that one's opinion is one's idea of what that truth is.

the key shows sell well because the pander to the tastes of otaku(moe girls who are weak and defenseless with very little personality and a growing, warm relationship between them and the main character; etc). i don't think this necessarily translates into them being good works.

i think that kyoani could be doing much better shows which are not designed to reel in 'moefags,' but chooses not to because it's found that key sells to otakus very well.

therefore they are wasting their potential, as far as i am concerned.
>>

>>11295657
You're free to share your personal opinions anytime, my friend. This is a free country.

But please, don't come trying to state them as a proven fact because it just makes you look stupid.

About them wasting their potential, this is subjective since it's not up to you to decide what should be produced or not. And it has been stated many and many times before KyoAni directors are fans of Jun Maeda and they make KEY adaptation because they like it, if it's selling high it's because they're doing a good job. Older Kanon made by Toei is proof enough of it since it was a huge market failure.

Also making "otaku" shows doesn't mean nothing, anime IS for otakus and we have enough pretentious studios around.
>>
>>11295830

ummm... what about popular shit like naruto?

Maybe you should hold off on defining what constitutes "good work" until you manage to grasp some far simpler concepts: spelling, punctuation, and capitalization come immediately to mind.
>>
>>11295880
so anime isn't specifically for otakus then. it's for children.
>>
>>11295799
i don't exactly have time to sit down and write a better one.

so i guess by your definition naruto/one piece/bleach are some of the greatest masterpieces of theatre/literature that's ever graces human eyes?
what you're saying it makes it successful work, yes. it does not make it work of literary substance. it can be rife with cliches, have little or not plot twists(or have them all be fairly predictable), have very little character development, have little to no complexity, and it could still be a hit among otakus as long as it has what they want. if i didn't have to leave home right away i'd debate whether key shows fall under this category or not, but unfortunately i don't have any more time.
>>
Honestly, the LoGH battles generally consist of copy pasta in terms of animation. You watch for the tactics and politics, and if that's not your thing, I have no idea why you'd get past the first few episodes.

I understand why someone would find it boring, but you have no reason to whine when you're obviously watching it for all the wrong reasons.

Of course, OP is a troll, but I've seen people make similar statements here before.

Seems /a/ has forgot the TRUE meaning of QUALITY. One thing is simple animation/single deformed frames to achieve an overall good animated sequence, which is completely different from TRUE QUALITY, like Higurashi season 1 (or Musashi, for an extreme example).

Gundam 00 has been so far one of the best Gundam series in terms of quality.

The battle scenes especially. Seeing Exia glide around slicing shit in half without any reused scenes or any of that shit was a landmark moment for a Gundam series. I think it's the only Gundam series not to recycle it's previous animation.

Not to mention the fact it was broadcast in 720p.

I agree.

As for Gainax, they had a bad period with "Melody of Oblivion" and "Beautiful and Ugly World" but they finally got back with Gurren Lagann. I'm not fan of this genre (=shounen robot buh) but it's objectively well made. They remain to the "uber tier" because one can't forget of Gunbuster, Evangelion or Nadia. They're firstly animefans themselves that make anime for other fans. And we can't say they're cashcowing Evangelion and G-L until we get to see respectively the films and projects around it.

Uber tier - Studios with some integrity, and is revered usually for their storytelling, animation, or both. They're usually the ones coming up with the most original works. If you're looking for most of the best sakuga in this industry, look here:

Gainax, BONES, Madhouse, 4°C, Production I.G, Ghibli

Mid tier - Studios who don't get that much attention, but their works aren't all that bad. A bit derivative, though:

JC Staff, Shaft, ufotable

Low tier - Studios without any real style or substance. Prefers to utilize boring and/or cheap animation techniques to make their works presentable, although they ultimately don't have anything unique to call their own.

Sunrise, Deen, Kyoto Animation

Bottom Tier - Shit, right? It's shit.

Gonzo, Pierrot
