A general for "western" animations/cartoons.
Gonna start off with a recommendation to watch The King and the Mockingbird the 1980 version especially, absolutely comrade-pilled movie.

Soma is a video game.


>Which VA?
Kingers, which feels weird, cause i actually really like this character.


also holy shit, if the plot is anything like SOMA i will really like this show, SOMA gave me recurring nightmares for years and i still think about it all the time, such an interesting concept. i really hope the story goes down a similar path or something just as good.


Oh, I didn't see anyone mention it in this thread so I was confused as to what was being referred to.

>Sean Chiplock
Him? The voice acting is good, but I honestly know nothing about the guy.


i don't really know anything about him either, other than what aforementioned former associate had told me, could be just drama nonsense.



Show from the late 90s about nerds misunderstanding the basics of life and has the hot chick love interest thing going. I'm shocked it didn't get at least one more season because it did such a great job at world building. As absurd as it is, it manages to be very human in everything it does. It is no surprise that real people were interviewed to get ideas for plots and characters. Also created by the people who later made Megas XLR, lol.

*Note: The meme doesn't actually reflect my view. Well kind of, but I don't actually give a shit about calarts. Its a stupid point brought up by people with a clear bias.*
I have seen recently that more and more cartoons have been trying to go the anime route. In a way, I welcomed this, since I wanted more realistic proportions and more serious story telling. But the more I look at it, the more it seems it is all a cash grab. A way of cashing in on the trend of anime. So now they will make all their shows anime. I dislike this. Even if their is styles like lets say Justice League or Teen Titans, Batman Beyond, there is a certain distinct feel to it. But now, they simply want to emulate it. Hell, Scott Pilgrim, the premiere comic that would work wonders with a cartoony style is instead being marketed as an anime. Why? To pander, to try and get that market share. Its cynical. And it doesn't help that more cartoony, rubber hose inspired cartoons are being canned. WB have been especially bad. I'm no John K, with that RETVRN mindset when it comes to animation. But I dislike this trend, especially when it tries to capture the anime essence without truly getting it.


I agree, they saw that anime and manga absolutely destroyed them at sales numbers and are now desperately and cynically trying to win people back.


It's always been funny to me how off-model Gumball got looped in with the 'calarts' meme. The only real argument is if you compare to the pilot design or something. The show esp. S1 is outstanding in its era for being absolute eye-candy and not made in North America.


Streaming services have just turned "anime" into a brand meaning "animation for adults". It's dumb but I care more about the quality of the end products than anything else.

Yeah the entire meme is bullshit and isn't how the characters actually look. The fact that it caught on tells you about the quality of 4chan/4chan-adjacent discourse.

>the entire meme is bullshit
Toonboom isn't bullshit, that got debunked in these threads yeas ago. The images are only vaguely different to the actual models and Gumball is the only one that doesn't fit the meme if only because the rest of the show is so distinct. Beanface is very much an aspect of those 'cartoons' and the general style is very similar to one another, with (again) Gumball being the exception. The reason people started calling Toonboom style "calarts" is because it was "pioneered" in California Arts school, and became associated with it because the school has stopped educating animators properly and just focuses on cheap mass-produced product similar to many of the cheap shitty SoL anime that gets produced en masse in Japan, where they abuse keyframing to save money and time in animation rather than properly animating scenes.

TL;DR: Animation in corporations is shit either way, late stage capitalism is eating itself and mainstream art.

Gumball was so good.

/co/ has had endless threads about this pilot for weeks, so I decided to give it a watch. I don't really get it. maybe's it's baby's first existentialism for a lot of people?
>More series could do with a Bender.
I hear he's great


its fun


decided to rewatch it. I guess it's OK


>. Hell, Scott Pilgrim, the premiere comic that would work wonders with a cartoony style is instead being marketed as an anime.
Scott Pilgrim was always very western animeish. Like tumblr art style in general.

And American animation was good mostly because it's not some hyper realistic cookie cutter shit. American animation was more about utilizing the distinctiveness of the art form with squash and stretch and visual gags and etc. I'd like to see Japan make some more stuff like Shin Chan and etc.

Yeah some realistic 99s animation would be cool, but what the entire world market is missing is cartoons that really have the spirit of animation.


File: 1700336721073.jpg (165.18 KB, 1200x800, desenhos-Hanna-Barbera.jpg)

I wonder if anyone has ever written about it, but I'd call it the Hana Barberaization of animation. Everything is this real low effort cookie cutter shit nowadays. All shots are from the same angle, same framing, no dynamism


Hanna Barbera pioneered "limited animation" to produce animation cheaper. Instead of re-drawing the whole character you separated them into layers and re-drew only the parts that moved. That's why all their characters have collars. It makes it easier to separate the head from the body and animate them separately.


Yeah, but you can tell there has been a deliberate attempt to animefy it. Like they obviously kept a cartoony style, ala panty and stocking. But compared to an animated short that came out right before the movie, it shows the vast difference in style they were going for. Whereas this one, while having some anime tropes, still maintains a western comic feel, while this new one is like you said embraces Western Tumblr Anime Style.


It only appeals to people under 13 and people over 30. You wouldn't get it otherwise.

Thoughts on what can be called the "Western Action Show Style" trend


Also I have only really seen a few screenshots and poster. But this is something I am looking forward to, and hopefully gets noticed so more films like it are made


Isn't this just an attempt at copying Timm?


Yes and No. I would say Timm is more exaggerated, whereas this new style is more proportional. (Obviously there will be exaggeration in some instances, like Allen the Alien) But for the most part, humans have about as realistic torso, leg and head as you can imagine. I would say Teen Titans are closer to Timm than this style is to Timm.


>muh commies
>muh degenerate
>attack helicopter joke
Jfc what an awful meme


Needs more tits and ass


I like it


I will say this is one of the downsides of this style. Which is not necessarily bad, if you're show doesn't call for fanservice, why bother with it. But it is something that generally not done within the style, and can be bad later on. If you're adapting something and a character is referred to as sexy, could be a case that the style doesn't convey that compared to other media. My guess since its reserved for more serious shows, fanservice is a no go. Hopefully, that changes as the style is more refined


kinda weird that the mere presence of an attractive character is considered "fanservice" now, when i think of the term massive jiggling tits come to mind


>watching cartoons
I hope all of you are still in school. Otherwise, yikes! And then I bet you wonder why none of you have gfs. I don't think women want to spend their days watching cartoons lol


I was being flippant but I didn't mean just having eye candy. All this cape shit is so asexual and sterile. There's no sensuality or eroticism. The only desire expressed is to dominate and murder people and it's just kind of gross.


Fanservice is like pantieshot and bath scene


Please go back bein jock bully in some 90s school movie that you came from.

Even that is toned down.


I think this is due to budget. In fact the first season was even more unnecessarily brutal than the comic actually is, turning Omniman into someone who simply didn't care about collateral damage to a psycho who went out of his way to kill as many people as possible.

1- Is this actually from an episode?
2 - what is he cringing so hard at? the lack of sound makes it confusing

uh oh! it's Edge-O-Clock!



That is such an ass character design.


Ok, to be fair, you are an idiot. These take place in two different periods of the story. First one is much later, when Thragg makes the alien his sex slaves to produce millions of his children for an army. And the second is after Nolan leaves Earth, and becomes their leader. This pic is more comparable to the second pic. I saw people were complaining about that and listen, again if you think modern cartoons have zero sex appeal, I can agree. But if you're going to do it, be factual about it.


i thought you guys were complaining about the adaptation looking low budget at first…


Violence is sexual. Expand your horizons.
