It's become boring skirmishes and stopped having a concrete theme, if it ever had one.


Anime can't even do capeshit right lmao what a crock of shit




also i wish it had digital colored variant, i saw the hexel ones, it looks pretty good

at least vigilantes, cause i don't think they're ever getting an anime


unfortunately,it's someone else who crooked (and there was also a jobber USA hero with a broken power who appeared and died in the same chapter in order to narratively weaken the villain,because he's overpowered as shit)

Look up the episodes and just skip the ones that are padding. The animation is kinda bad but its from the early 2000s so the quaint aspects are something I like personally, it might not be to your taste. The anime peaks in the Grand-Line arcs (Little Garden, Drum Island, Alabasta, Skypeia, Marine8 etc) After the Time-skip I suggest only watching past the Fishman island arc, and just looking at youtube clips for certain manga scenes in the anime, because the overall episodes drag on like balls through glass and the animation becomes even shittier than back in the beginning of the anime. So read the manga too, and the anime as additional content.

As for the movies I suggest:
- Dead End Adventure
- Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island
- The Cursed Holy Sword
- The Giant Mechanical Soldier of Karakuri Castle
- One Piece Film Z
- One Piece Film Gold
- Strong World
- Clockwork Island Adventure

Oda realized he can't promote killing the monarchy for their crimes if he already has monarchs that are "good" in the story, mostly because he's trying to avoid a conflict of interests among aligned characters such as Luffy, Sabo and Dragon. Thus it's going to be a misunderstanding or "sacrifice" in the story. Oda is honestly tired of One Piece (thus Film Red being so off key compared to the rest of the series) and has basically placed himself into a narrative hole, thus the rush to end the series. I predict they'll probably stretch it out for a couple more years ending in a climactic battle and the finding of the One Piece and Luffy becoming Pirate King. He'll probably even reject the treasure if only because 'it'll limit his freedom' or something like that.

It's Grundrisse m8


Only David-kun is any good.
Punpun is overrated, am I supposed to empathize with a kid's drawing of a bird?


It started good with an unique rough style. The story now is alright but I don't loike how "normal" the art has become.


which one is the cutest, funniest and prettiest?
i want to collect and read


I would say Bonnouji, but Punpun is visually beautiful also.


Anyone know if there's a group subbing Da Wang Rao Ming? Seems like it's only available on Tencent; the opening looks amazing.


Damn OP there's already a Donghua thread


It was on Page 25 at the time of posting; I didn't wanna necrobump.


"necrobump" is not a thing here, don't worry.


does anybody know of any good wuxia shit, or just any good chinese anime in general? i watched mo dao zu shi and i really liked it

Is there an explanation as to why so many 3d animes or animes with CGI look noticeably fucking awful? I cant possibly fathom as to how any individual can fuck up so badly on aesthetics when it comes to anime as westerners already can make plenty of 3d cartoons that look just fine with good art styles, hell even for individual artists making good looking CGI isnt hard as your essentially getting 3d squares and triangles with images stretched on them to move around a screen for several minutes and artists like Ian Hubert have proven that large budgets for good looking graphics is far from difficult or expensive, so what gives?

>3DCG doesn't actually save money, in fact it costs a lot more to pay for the specialists
Not in this day and age, especially since outsourcing to third parties is cheaper than paying your own people, and this is all assuming they're trying to make good 3D CGI


I watched a video that touches on this a couple of weeks ago that made some good points I'll try to remember. Mostly it's about composition, and that a lot of stylistic things in anime are to keep it easy to animate that isn't so much of a problem in CGI. Anime pioneered a lot of tricks that animates what are essentially still images, like a character will be moved left and the background moves right to give it a sense of movement, but in CGI you've already modelled it all so there's no drawing or layers to move around, the hard work is already done and you have a fully modelled world to play around with, so there's no trick required.

Ironically the creator then goes on to make similar unorthodox adjustments to composition in his original work (he also remakes some 2D scenes as practice and so the composition doesn't change in those) that I don't think is as good, like for example with his subway scene a more traditional composition would be the train viewed from its side going past, I think there is a scene in Patlabor 2 that nails this. While trying to find a gif of it I stumbled on another gif I will follow up this post with.

>>16784 follow up
This is also another trick you don't see as much nowadays and was also done in Patlabor, but making windows brightly lit with some blur is kino and cheaper
Also I went and spent ten minutes fucking around trying to turn the scene into a gif and it put a watermark on it so now I'm mad


>gets sent to anime anyways

the new DBS movie was in 3D too for some reason despite the last one being praised for it's light and fluffy style

I didn't mind it but it's very inorganic and kinda goes against what I imagine to be anime

Clay like


>however, much quicker, which is something animation studios need considering how crunched their timetables are on the best of weeks


If 3DCG doesn't overwork workers I'm okay tho

It's a shame they didn't get another series out of it at the time, I don't think you could make something like it even with an unlimited budget nowadays. The kino but very 90s soundtrack being the most obvious example of its constituent parts.
Smh Griffith just HAD to fuck the princess didn't he. Should have fucked the king instead and all of this could have been avoided.


>I don't think you could make something like it even with an unlimited budget nowadays
I mean,it's good,but it's not like it's the hardest thing to make ever,I could easily see Bones,MAPPA or even DEEN do it.
Reminder that it was given to a bunch of litterally whos who only did 3d animation,it's not just the budget that was the problem
For the soundtrack,Hirasawa was on the remake and the movies as well,he isn't dead,he made an album last year,and it still has his style.


It's in the long-standing tradition of manga/anime that occasionally has some great imagery and interesting themes but is also full of "look at the big-ass sword! Look at the cool beam!"


It's not the material or subject matter that's the issue, but the amount of source material and the way most of it ties together so that it's hard to skip much of it. It'd probably take 10+ years to fully adapt it, which is a big commitment and risk for a project, especially now that the 2016 anime was panned.

>It's in the long-standing tradition of manga/anime that occasionally has some great imagery and interesting themes but is also full of "look at the big-ass sword!
Illustrating a story about someone who wields a weapon is going to involve a lot of images of them wielding the weapon. And there's a lot you can do with something like a sword, and a lot of inventive things you can do with an unconventional sword.

Kissless hugless NEET virgin gets transported to another world without his consent and receives power on a silver plate like almost all isekai and then gets treated like shit by the nobility who is useless without slaves. He has all the power in that world to free slaves and wreck the monarchy but decides to get his own slave girls and work with the monarchy instead, to the point of even Stockholm syndrome-ing his enslaved harem.
It's the capitalist dream of becoming the CEO and bossing your wage slaves around but in a fantasy medieval setting, so with the MC living out his fantasies as a slave owner and trying to become a king.


but he wuvs his swaves ( = w=)


You can't create lasting change without changing how people think. Not sure if this is conscious of subconscious but it seems isekai stuff has some acknowledgment of this. But on a more shallow level it's merely preventing changing the feel of the world stepping away from typical fantasy settings based on medieval Europe because it's a popular trope.

There's something very satisfying in seeing tsundere get what's coming to them.

objectively correct




That's what I hated about Chunibyo, I guess bullying Rikka was meant to be comedic but she looked really hurt afterwards.


What's the material explanation for tsunderes being so popular in anime?


It's a portrayal of woman who acts like she hates you but loves you immensely. So it's basically a fantasy. It maybe cause of the rate of sexual agressions in japan, and turning woman responses of rejection and disgust into love.


Go Nagai's cult classic, post-apocalyptic manga that was adapted into an infamous OVA trilogy.


Yeah? What do you think of them OP?


Pretty interesting, seeing how much it influenced Berserk. Yū Kinutani (mangaka of Amon: The Darkside of the Devilman) is currently working on a remake, Violence Jack 20XX. So far, there are two Tankōbon volumes of 20XX, with a third one to be published in September 20th.

Here are some comparisons between 20XX and the original.
