What should they adapt? I don't dig deep into LNs.

Jackson Perez
Jackson Perez

Why do they bother holding these "awards" if none of the entries end up winning anyway?

inb4 plot ideas for their next anime

Evan Campbell
Evan Campbell

what is this?

Jaxon Carter

Uguu Shoujo
Ew, I thought anime have moved on from this disgusting artstyle.

Asher Ramirez
Asher Ramirez

They're not gonna adapt Coppelia but they might get the author to write something else from them.

He already worked on Tamako LN.

Camden Perry
Camden Perry

NHK should hire KyoAni to make Haruchan anime.

Angel Sanchez
Angel Sanchez

Looking at their previous honorable mentions I shudder to think how badly written the entries below "honorable mentions" are.

Archery boys sounds neat though.

Benjamin Anderson
Benjamin Anderson

Are these contests even real? Or mabye nobody even submits anything anymore.
I am okay with Coppelia though but they will probably change the story of the anime so much that it will just be some generic shit again.

Tyler Fisher
Tyler Fisher

Its kind of sad how no actually good writers send in stuff to Kyoani. Probably because they'd make more money publishing it through someone else, but still.

Jace Foster
Jace Foster

Well, at the basis, Coppelia does seem generic.
I still want it though. It's either this or VEG.

Jaxon Torres
Jaxon Torres

What coppelia is about

Luis Martinez
Luis Martinez

This story takes place in an old mansion surrounded by peaceful forests and plains. "Since you are a human, you must work! Never ever act unhappy." The automaton (homonculus) deemed a "failure" since her heart does not beat, Coppelia, was created in order to work in the mansion. In acknowledgement of this, she publicly joins a group of maids. As she works with her busy maid companions and spends time with the other weak girl, Swanilda, Coppelia begins to experience and embrace human emotions.

Nicholas Adams

Isn't it better that they don't lower their standards just so anything can win?

Logan James
Logan James

That sounds like it fits Kyoani very well. I'd pick it up.

Liam Long
Liam Long

But this year is pretty extremely. There are 10 categories but only one has a winner.

Jaxson Nguyen
Jaxson Nguyen

There aren't many good writers in Japan. Even popular LNs made by professionals sometimes read like they were made by 16 year olds.

Jayden Anderson
Jayden Anderson

There are 10 categories but only one has a winner
Like almost every year.
Last year has no winner at all.

Wyatt Walker
Wyatt Walker

There has only been one winner ever, maybe VEG's writer could become an original writer for them.

David Ramirez
David Ramirez

They're clearly working on obtaining Berserk so it doesn't have to be CGIshit anymore.

Jason Collins
Jason Collins

They sure hold their standards high huh

Aiden Walker
Aiden Walker

Well they're KyoAni after all

Benjamin Morgan
Benjamin Morgan

Coppelia and more originals, ahoy!

Or adapt other stuff from other publishers like from Kodansha

Ayden Roberts
Ayden Roberts

Its kind of sad how no actually good writers send in stuff to Kyoani. Probably because they'd make more money publishing it through someone else, but still.
Basically everyone who show up are those Kadokawa already rejected.

Elijah Gray
Elijah Gray

They're not gonna adapt Coppelia
Says who?

Dominic Harris
Dominic Harris

novel is from 2011
I doubt they're going to touch it at this point.

Grayson Kelly
Grayson Kelly

Who is the girl that looks exactly like her? Did they try to dublicate her with the automaton?

Henry Roberts

I would be down for an anime of this.

Leo Clark

The one in OP's pic.

Jace Wilson

Swanilda (blue) is Coppelius' (the creator) little sister. He made Coppeila (red) for unclear reasons. I don't want to say anything else because I'm not done with the book yet.

What crazy shilling.

Just say the novels suck.

Brandon Foster
Brandon Foster

Violet Evergarden when

Aaron Phillips
Aaron Phillips

Violet Evergarden truly deserved to be the first Grand Prize winner. The writing style is leagues above the others and the overall stories are good enough to not need assistance from editors. Kana Akatsuki has very good skill with prose and dialogue which, when combined with an interesting setting, allowed her to have very touching stories with Violet.

Masterpiece confirmed

Lincoln Anderson

Says the guy who wanted to see Phantom World animated.

John Bell

Ultimatemegax is like the biggest KyoAni shill one can quote.

Aaron Turner
Aaron Turner

Did he? I seem to remember him saying it wouldn't happen until it did

Tyler Hughes
Tyler Hughes

Finally, there is an incredibly annoying trend in the English anime fandom to be upset that the directors/series composers alter the novels for the television anime product.
Maybe one day we'll get a book that can stand on it's own without sever alterations.

Nolan Brooks
Nolan Brooks

There you go Satoshi Konfag, here's your deep and meaningful KyoAni show.

Christopher Taylor
Christopher Taylor

So essentially the robot girl gets passed around multiple protagonists?

Adam Mitchell
Adam Mitchell

Needing television/film adaptations to be perfect 1/1 copies of their source is a meme opinion.

LOTR is one of the greatest film trilogies ever and it cuts and alters many things from the books.

"The enthusiasts who have read the novels over and over may notice every change but in doing so they will miss the point. Peter Jackson's movie does not challenge the novel's supremacy any more than the distinguished book illustrations by Howe, Lee et al were meant to replace Tolkien's descriptive words. Paintings, drawings, animations and at last the feature films all augment our appreciation of Lord of the Rings.

"Another point on this, the question that dominates my email: the adaptation of masterpieces from one medium to another is as old as literature. Most of Shakespeare's plays are re-workings of stories, poems or written history. When I moved Richard III from stage to screen, I was determined to make a good film in honour of a great play. Had I left every scene and line of the text intact in the movie, it would not have been a good one. Kurosawa's Throne of Blood, my favourite version of the Macbeth saga, distorts Shakespeare to spectacular effect. The play which inspired it remains intact."

- Ian Mckellan

Matthew Sanchez
Matthew Sanchez

Seems so.

William Gray
William Gray

Swanilda (blue) is Coppelius' (the creator) little sister. He made Coppeila (red) for unclear reasons.
He wanted to fuck his sister?

Hunter White
Hunter White

Yeah, turning a cast of elementary school boys into high school boys was totally a way to convey the meaning of the novel instead of optimizing it to the sales target groups.

Anthony Campbell
Anthony Campbell

Hmm, how does one make a TV series like that? It sounds like an inverse Kino's Journey

Nathan Gomez
Nathan Gomez

Waiting for the unfolding writing trainwreck once it actually premiers.

Jason Garcia
Jason Garcia

Making an adaption that suits television is one thing. When they adapt LNs they really just take the basic idea and characters and do their own thing with it. A good book wouldn't need such a drastic makeover.
Not really complaining about them changing things; it was necessary. I just think they should adapt more well written stories.

Benjamin Gray
Benjamin Gray

If you're referring to Free the TV series takes place after the book it was based on. The movie is the actual adaptation if I'm not mistaken, haven't seen it yet

Carson Parker
Carson Parker

if none of the entries end up winning anyway?
Violent Ever Garden, tripfag.

Jordan Sanchez
Jordan Sanchez

He writes basically that every KyoAni novel is good (of course never describes what makes it good)

Adam Flores
Adam Flores

If they can't get enough quality writers for their original LNs, they should just buy out more quality novels. They bought out Hibike and that was a big success.

Jonathan White
Jonathan White

It's KyoAni, they always find a way.

Jonathan Taylor
Jonathan Taylor

until the anime airs and then he goes into "that one next KyoAni novel is in a different league to title x".

Owen Wright
Owen Wright

She has a bad heart. Their mother died of the same illness. Coppelia is a failure because her heart doesn't beat. If I put two and two together I'm thinking that he wanted to give her a transplant.

Ethan Cook
Ethan Cook

Having read a fair amount of them and works by better authors, I can simply say that the majority are of the level of light novels. Easily publishable/readable, but not near literary quality work. For example, Chuunibyou’s first novel has a spot where they randomly go to an amusement park (for advancement of one plot line involving Rikka’s father). Why do they go to one? The principal cancelled classes to have the students go on a trip randomly. That’s not solid writing; it’s flimsy at best.

That's what he wrote. Where's the quote where he writes what you say?

Jaxson Harris
Jaxson Harris

want to fuck your sister
create a copy of her instead
Sure seems like a good idea.

Dylan Reyes
Dylan Reyes

Probably episodic format

Jackson Parker
Jackson Parker

Yeah, maybe that's what VEG will be.
I guess it makes sense they stopped handing out prizes so readily after they got it as a submission

Brandon Kelly
Brandon Kelly

How is that filmsy at best?

Austin Campbell
Austin Campbell

Even popular LNs made by professionals sometimes read like they were made by 16 year olds
I think there's a reason to that. They're writing outside their domian and often can't into the current adolescent mindset so it really resonate as a murky sixteen year old fanfic. They're trying to get into the minds of what adolescences like and are often disassociate because of generation gap.

Nathaniel James
Nathaniel James

That's the reason why KyoAni animates Phantom World and Shaft animates Zaregoto.

Chase Taylor
Chase Taylor

I wonder if they'll announce VEG before or after they announce they're doing FMP and Itou was just fucking with us.

Jace Jackson
Jace Jackson

Shaft animates

Let's not get crazy, it's going to be mostly powerpoints and shitty CGI all over the place like always

Michael Rivera
Michael Rivera

They really upped their standards, 2 years in a row with basically nothing. No honorable mentions either. Writers need to step it up.

Levi Thompson
Levi Thompson

Can't be helped.

KyoAni put itself into a corner with pushing that own LN brand.
Though it looks like they are already trying to move away from that business model again.

Noah Stewart
Noah Stewart

shaft is going to ruin zaregoto like they did with monogatari
God damn it.

Nicholas Morgan
Nicholas Morgan

There aren't many good writers in Japan
Oh fuck off. Haruki Murikami is one of the most celebrated conremporary authors in the world. Natsuo Kirino, Kazuo Ishiguro, and Banana Yoshimoto are great as well.

Jonathan Lee
Jonathan Lee

Kazuo Ishiguro
Wasn't he raised in England?

Jacob Lewis
Jacob Lewis

Yes. His family is Japanese and his early work was set in (imaginary) Japan, though you're right that he isn't really representative.

Joshua Rogers
Joshua Rogers

Never Let Me Go is one of the saddest books I've ever read. It was so well written though.

Adam Long
Adam Long

I think it could be adapted into an anime fairly well.
Would be nice to see the Hailsham setting

Hudson Evans
Hudson Evans

I think it could too. Maybe as an eleven episode series. Not sure if Sup Forums would like it though.
Hailsham would be beautiful.

Angel Bennett
Angel Bennett

Though it looks like they are already trying to move away from that business model again.
They are?

Joseph Mitchell
Joseph Mitchell

Maybe he's talking about Hibike and Koe no Katachi.

Justin Lewis
Justin Lewis

I doubt it.
They are even stricter with their contest now since VEG though, so we'll probably see less of their LN adaptations because they won't have much and more outside content and original anime.

Sebastian Turner
Sebastian Turner

They'll maintain the publishing label and contest, but when they expand (which they should in the next 5 years, unless someone is embezzling all those yen) they'll probably focus new growth on making more animation.

Chase Lee
Chase Lee

They should let new directors debut on their remaining non-honorable mention LNs and have their big dick directors do big dick stuff like Hibike.

Jaxon Nguyen
Jaxon Nguyen

Sauce

Grayson Walker
Grayson Walker

Sounds like the thinking man's Shigofumi

Angel Edwards
Angel Edwards

Most of the LN adaptation so far has been directed by Ishihara except Kyoukai no Kanata. I wonder why, maybe he's the only one who's willing to do it.

Dylan Hughes
Dylan Hughes

Don't think Sup Forums would like what a slut Kathy becomes at the cabins

Jose Foster
Jose Foster

He's always been their go to director

Isaiah King
Isaiah King

It's not really her fault. They were horribly sheltered without any outside influence and it kind of sounded like she was forced the first time until she just gave up. They all felt kind of worthless and were going to die soon anyway.
I just felt bad for her. Even her friend who was cheating and sleeping around. These kids never got any love from parents and were scorned by the world.
Although they had a relatively good life at Hailsham slowly finding out their purpose in life must have been earth-shattering, but in a slow and painful way.

Levi Gutierrez
Levi Gutierrez

Oh boy, it's the megax spin thread. Why not just admit that nobody submit entries to the Kyoani award anymore, because everyone realize what a scam it has been?

Landon Bennett
Landon Bennett

Chunibyo: Ishihara
Free: Utsumi
High Speed: Takemoto
Kyoukai no Kanata: Ishidate
Phantom World: Ishihara

Parker Moore
Parker Moore

Who's the most perverted?

Jack Ramirez
Jack Ramirez

Why does anyone on Sup Forums still cite ultimatemegax as any kind of authority is beyond me. Isn't it blatantly obvious that he had that tumblr post ready to go in the likely event that Kyoani had another contest with no entries?

Henry Evans
Henry Evans

Ishihara

Nathan Foster
Nathan Foster

Ishihara is the most lewd really. Takehomo is very concerned with keeping things as close to the actual theme as possible.

Jonathan Campbell
Jonathan Campbell

I still prefer Takemoto's fanservice. He's really good at it.

Noah Carter
Noah Carter

He's good at everything, well other than not looking like a complete fuck up.

Brandon Harris
Brandon Harris

Oh I totally sympathize with her, just that all the purityfags on Sup Forums would be buttblasted

Cooper Wright
Cooper Wright

not liking monkey moe

Tyler Taylor
Tyler Taylor

No I totally like his looks and think he's hilariously looking but that doesn't change the fact that he looks like an anti-incestfag's wet dream.

Austin Rivera
Austin Rivera

Yeah, I figured that too. Not something I'd want to watch with Sup Forums.

Xavier Baker
Xavier Baker

Because even though he shills he actually reads their books and also keeps up with their ongoings more than anybody else.

Let me know when you've read all the Kyoani LN and can offer your own perspective on it. I look forward to a second educated opinion.

Nicholas Barnes
Nicholas Barnes

He kind of looks like a caricature of a predator

Owen Bailey
Owen Bailey

implying there's a ln in the history of the world that "deserves" anything other than complete irrelevancy

Andrew Nguyen
Andrew Nguyen

Why would I want to read shit? Phantom vol.2 sold barely 2k and the LN bombed too. Everyone saw that coming from a mile away, except for his super informed opinion. How high, exactly, is this "kyoani standard" when Phantom was an award winner? What about Chuuni? KnK? High Speed? Every Kyoani LN has been shit, and you got to be a fool to trust Ultimatemegax that this time would be different.

Mason Peterson
Mason Peterson

None of those were winners.

Eli Nguyen
Eli Nguyen

I don't want to read their LNs either, which is why I don't mind someone who has read them sum it up for me. You're just butthurt he actually has knowledge on the matter and gives reasonable takes you can't refute because you haven't done any research yourself. No doubt you have some weird bias against Kyoani born out of edgy contrarianism and have an axe to grind against anyone who says something positive about the studio.

Luke Jackson
Luke Jackson

Honourable mention does not mean win, idiot.

Connor Brooks
Connor Brooks

If encouragement award aren't really awards, then Yamada isn't an award-winning director either.

Alexander Brooks
Alexander Brooks

Guess she isn't then.

Nicholas Gray
Nicholas Gray

Fuck this, im calling my lawyer

Ethan Robinson
Ethan Robinson

Really interested in what they have in store for 2017.

Joshua Mitchell
Joshua Mitchell

The worst think about this is that they will still pick one LN and animate it.

Mason Rogers
Mason Rogers

They'll pick VEG.

Grayson Roberts
Grayson Roberts

Maybe, but they should already ditch their LN adaptations. It happened exactly as everybody expected and Kadokawa is not letting them have any decent author or at least not enough of them.

Oliver Hughes
Oliver Hughes

You are retarded.

Owen Russell
Owen Russell

If trash like Phantom can win the runner up prize, I shudder to think the quality of entries (if any) get rejected. Why is Japan shunning the Kyoani award? The lack of prestige? Prize money? Distribution?

Isn't a high chance of getting anime adaptation by Godani good enough enticement?

Ethan Sanchez
Ethan Sanchez

Witnessed

Logan Murphy
Logan Murphy

If I knew nip I would definitely send something in.

Parker Hall
Parker Hall

Isn't a high chance of getting anime adaptation by Godani good enough enticement?

After Phantom Shit or Kyoukai no Flop?

Grayson Taylor
Grayson Taylor

KnK had average sales.

Jordan Ramirez
Jordan Ramirez

It had 4k average. That's generic shit harem tier. Movie did 7k. That's a disaster for a movie.

Josiah Jenkins
Josiah Jenkins

I just want my KyoAni Carnival Phantasm

Isaac Ward
Isaac Ward

A little above average actually

Leo Foster
Leo Foster

What a bunch of pretentious fuckwits. What's the point of having award if you won't give it to anything? There are plenty of good manga floating around.

Cooper Miller
Cooper Miller

This. Why don't they award the winning prize to garbage? Pretentious hacks.

Brayden Fisher
Brayden Fisher

I think it will be faster if we wrote a novel and had someone translate it. Then once it wins and gets an adaption it will be the greatest accomplishment a board has ever achieved.

Noah Richardson
Noah Richardson

What if they adapted Katawa Shoujo?

Lucas Ortiz
Lucas Ortiz

Why are all the submissions garbage?

Wyatt Long
Wyatt Long

Can't. It would be too similar to Koe no Katachi.

Brody Martinez
Brody Martinez

What about keit-ai?

Luis Lopez
Luis Lopez

That doesn't even make sense. Aren't LNs usually by younger authors anyway? If they were trying to get into a teenage mindset, and sounded like they were writing a teen fanfic, then they would have succeeded. If the generation gap was really a thing they'd just sound like your out of touch dad trying phrases that he thinks all the kids are saying nowadays.

William Kelly
William Kelly

It'd be cool to get another Keit-Ai animated by Kyoani.

Juan Moore
Juan Moore

LNs are a very new medium, and everyone is still trying to catch lightning in a bottle like FMP, Haruhi, etc.
Very few people have figured out how to do it well, so there is a lot of failed experimentation and hopelessly derivative work.

Tyler White
Tyler White

You know she won awards other than that new face award too right. She has won an award for Keion.

Chase Campbell
Chase Campbell

It seems like the LN publishing was a just a kick starter for them since cutting ties with Kadokawa. They've been making more money and now can afford the rights to stuff like Hibike and can animate Koe no Katachi.

Michael Sullivan
Michael Sullivan

Why are all the submissions garbage?

Because it's some amateur's dream to have their work animated by KyoAni

Nathaniel Allen
Nathaniel Allen

Because fanboys quoting fanboy.

Brody Nelson
Brody Nelson

The automaton (homonculus) deemed a "failure" since her heart does not beat, Coppelia, was created in order to work in the mansion.
Thanks god she's a failure.

Cooper Miller
Cooper Miller

That honestly doesn't sound that bad. Or maybe anything sounds better than Phantom World.

Ryder Bell
Ryder Bell

They sure hold their standards high huh
Well they're KyoAni after all

Noah Thomas
Noah Thomas

Kadokawa is not letting them have any decent author or at least not enough of them

Why is Kadokawa actively trying to sabotage Kyoani's success? Have Kyoani made the wrong enemy?

Jacob Parker
Jacob Parker

It's ok they're allied with Kodansha now who's even bigger than Kadokawa

BasedAni wins again
