Hey boorufags can you add a date tag for the season a show is from? Like "Spring 2016".
I'd like to see what's new from the latest season without checking each single show's tag every time, is what I mean. I don't even watch most of them.
Yes of course do it just for me thank you very much.

Can't those niggers read the credits and tell by the style alone? There's only a handful of KyoAni key animators and they're always the same people anyway. I have a feeling they only know the artist because he/she posts the genga on their personal twitter account.

Connor Stewart

It's a weeb buzzword.

Anthony Rogers
Anthony Rogers

The only part worth a bit of praise is the turn around the antagonist.
And it lasts less than 1 second.
The blond girl acceleration might look neat but if you look closely it's 1 second of a full body shot and 3 of smoke and speed lines. The close up on her face is all speed lines too, and not that impressive since turning from 3/4 face to front face has never been that hard to animate. I'll concede that the intervallists did a pretty good job, but the guy who did the key drawings was pretty damn lazy.

Luis Wilson

I've always hated this definition. I guess a series with consistently good animation has no sakuga, then.

hurr durr this animation is literally perfect and can't be better in any shape, way, or form.

Kayden Powell

That has nothing to do with what I said.

Grayson Bailey
Grayson Bailey

Not even trying to offend or bait anyone but yozakura quartet didn't interest me. At all. Animation in the webms are mostly from the OVAs from what I'm told on here, I watched the main series (not 2008, the newer one that supposedly follows the source material more accurately) and just wasn't feeling it. Didn't really like any characters so even if something cool happened I barely cared. I didn't get that far in tho so maybe o should try again one day

Ayden Robinson

Can't you people get along for once and post nice animation ? Its really not that hard

Colton Murphy

You're implying that it's literally impossible for the animation to get any better.

Stop being a goddamn retard.

Ryder Roberts

Sakuga =animation
Motion graphics != Sakuga

Ian Lopez
Ian Lopez

Sakuga literally means animation, it can be good or bad. Informally it is used to mean good animation.

Ethan Parker
Ethan Parker

Sakuga (作画) (lit., "drawing pictures") is a term used in anime to describe moments in a show or movie when the quality of the animation improves drastically, typically for the sake of making a dramatic point or enlivening the action.

Christian Roberts
Christian Roberts

The newer TV series has lots of good animation as well, but it's understandable if you didn't like it.

Justin Long
Justin Long

That's an awful definition, where'd you get that?

Hunter Wilson
Hunter Wilson

Sakuga = increased frames out of nowhere

Usually in either fights or character acting

Jackson Adams
Jackson Adams

Google.

Basically this.

Jonathan Cook
Jonathan Cook

No, I'm saying that the definition
Sakuga = Improvement in animation for a certain scene.
implies that a series with consistently good animation has no sakuga. It could be better, but that has nothing to do with this definition.
That is why I subscribe to this definition:
Sakuga literally means animation, it can be good or bad. Informally it is used to mean good animation.

Gabriel Martin
Gabriel Martin

I looked it up and it looks like it's by some random "anime expert".

Carson Garcia
Carson Garcia

I'm convinced I'm being baited.

Jaxson Long
Jaxson Long

Is this shit really such a hard concept to grasp?
There's no such thing as "perfect" animation. Everything can always be improved, including the Sakuga itself.

Isaac Nguyen
Isaac Nguyen

Nah it's boring shit. Would be forgettable Endride tier if it didn't get special attention/effort in production (I think someone being buddy-buddy with the mangaka wasn't it?)

Isaac Brown
Isaac Brown

Mob psycho 100 wil probably have good animation this summer.

Kayden Gomez
Kayden Gomez

There doesn't have to be "perfect" animation. That has nothing to do with it. I'm saying that your definition doesn't hold in the case of a show that has consistently the same quality of good animation. In that case those sakuga mounts wouldn't be in the goddamn graph and there would thus be no sakuga.

Nathan Diaz
Nathan Diaz

Too bad it's unlikely to be as well-animated as OPM.

Joseph Rogers
Joseph Rogers

Why is loli giving him a bj in front of other people?

Luke Walker
Luke Walker

Fuck sakuga, just call it good animation.

Hunter Long
Hunter Long

just think if the godzilla movie wasnt made we could have already watched rebuild 4.44

Charles Rivera
Charles Rivera

If a show has consistently good animation, but never tries to do any better at all for their more important scenes this never happens, then correct, no Sakuga.

Brody Bell
Brody Bell

So even if all of the animation in that show was amazing, we would not be allowed to post it in these threads because the definition of sakuga is retardedly specific?

Jaxon Stewart
Jaxon Stewart

Why do people keep posting this show? Sometimes even the best clips tend not to look so great.

John Myers
John Myers

Yes.
Now try finding me a single example of a show that never does this.

Camden Miller

Obviously, it is if this is how threads always turn out.

Isaiah Taylor

Shinya Ohira's Asura's Wrath OVA.

Andrew Torres
Andrew Torres

That's irrelevant. What matters is that the definition is really arbitrary. It could just be "good animation" and have the exact same effect, except it doesn't disqualify scenes because of things that aren't actually relevant to the scene of animation we're looking at.

Mason Johnson
Mason Johnson

I would guess that the poster considers that scene to be cool and/or of good enough animation quality to fit the term sakuga=good animation=I liked it very much=some other definition.

Justin Ramirez
Justin Ramirez

Lol what. Sakuga literally translated as animation. In anime sakuga is animated parts, while the rest of the show is typically a moving sprites due to shit budget.
True animation is when each frame is drawn from scratch.

Blake Gonzalez
Blake Gonzalez

It won't have as many good animators on board as OPM, only a handful have gone over to work on Mob Psycho.

Anthony Bell

while the rest of the show is typically a moving sprites

Camden Collins

I---I think I really hate this. It's trying too hard to be a movie, but doesn't realize that the reason scenes are in American action movies look that way is because the actors can't really do really good action scenes. It's all about the beauty of editing.

Then it's like the slow downs don't really make any sense? Like, yeah he's falling off the thing, but I have no sense of danger for the character so it doesn't provide anything for me except that it looks ridiculous.

Austin Smith
Austin Smith

I think you're on to something there. The camera work in that scene kinda feels that way to me too, the way it jerks and wobbles that's really handy if you want to conceal what would be awful-looking action if you shot it with a still camera. I'd imagine people will justify this kind of thing with how it "immerses" you or other such vague words, but sometimes I wonder whether they even know why they're doing it.

John Cook
John Cook

CG are puppets that take commands.
What about it? Stop pretending like that's some sort of problem.

Who do you think sets up said keyframes? Do you really think that you set up a pose, and it just magically works?
No, take Guilty Gear for example, each and every single frame of the character had to be edited for hours on end just to get the character to look right.

Noah Harris
Noah Harris

Why explain when you're already this biased against 3D animation? There's no point on arguing with you when you're so close minded.

If you must post Redline in a sakuga thread, at least post a part where there's animation, not just a zoom-in on a facial shot.

Nathan Miller

Actually they were animated to look like 2D as much as possible with the quote being to "kill everything 3D" and the close ups and cutscenes were all done by hand. Yes, they did their best to make it look 2D because 2D looks like shit.

It's interesting. It tells a much better story and is way more interesting to watch than the Batman clip, but is it fair to compare? The other one is taken out of context, but it's apart of a larger narrative even if on it's own it doesn't really stand strong.

This video is an short film though so it needs more otherwise it would be a failure.

Not at all. An "average" looking anime would be something like Anne Happy airing this season. Pretty standard art with no action shots, but even then it still looks nice and has a few pretty looking scenes. Then the you get things like Concrete Revolution or Hero Academy or Ushio to Tora which have really nice art styles and some good animation, with the occasional sakuga. The only things that CG can even be compared to is the absolute worst each season has to offer.

Xavier Lopez

The problem with CG is that TV-tier CG will never, ever look good. There is good-looking CG, like in the Peanuts movie or Zootopia. But TV CG always looks like garbage, just look at the ugly cheap stuff Dreamworks produces for Netflix.

Yes, it looked better than normal anime CG. But the point is why would we want CG at all? It's done nothing good for the industry.

Over-saturated colors and spinning shaky cam is what qualifies decent now?

That describes every sakuga webm quite well.

Logan Green
Logan Green

I guess it would be because it is solid work.
Vibrant colors, attractive character designs, interesting technical backgrounds as designed by Fumihiro Katagai (I really loved Yokai Town with all its cables and cameras), cute characters, the theme about searching for your dreams, growing up, finding love and never giving up, the quirky characters, the quite enthusiastic voice acting, and it being absolutely unknown on Sup Forums prior to its airing except on the cosplay boards lead it to being that sudden dark horse that does emit a strange fascination. The 2D and 3D animation being of high quality helps too.

Also, Cyan is a cutefu.

Dylan Baker

The big problem with that is that the CG looks like it was simply used to cut down the cost and production time. In order for it to look good, it needs to be given a large budget and enough time to be polished off. Both of those things are severely lacking with anime.

I do think its pretty obvious CG isn't going to go away anytime soon, and might even be more prevalent as time goes on. Not that I want hand-drawn to go away completely, but if there has to be CG, I'd at least want to see them improving their usage of it. The better looking CG studios are at least getting better at using more relevant techniques like deformation and remodeling individual frames, so its a start.

Go! Princess was a fluke. Mahou Tsukai has been bland, animation-wise, and aside from a few cutesy references, the two years before that were pretty short on decent animation as well. Even that strangely detailed scene from Happiness Charge is just insanely out of place in that year, just suddenly kung fu for the finale. Because reasons, I suppose.

Maho Girls has been way worse than usual in the animation department. Happiness Charge and Doki Doki at least managed to have consistently good animation for their stock footage, along with more than just one good fight over the course of fifteen episodes.

It's probably because Go Princess didn't bring in the toy sales they wanted or something.

Fact 1: Character acting is more difficult to get right than an action sequence. We are better at noticing faults in acting than in fighting and explosions becasue it's what we're familiar with
Fact 2: Most climaxes in anime are action sequences
Fact 3: Studios allocates their staff and resources as such that their best talent works on the climaxes.

Question: You have a staff with one great animator, a couple good animators, and the rest are average. Why would you assign your best animator to work on the climactic action sequence of the episode, when you could instead give that part to one of the good animators, and have your best animator instead use his abilities to make the character animation better and more convincing in a less climactic scene? Character animation is the greatest weakness of Japanese animation.

Yes, to a very obvious degree. That's why it isn't subtle.

When doing character acting animation, Subtlety=!Good. The medium pretty much demands more exaggeration and/or emphasis in order for it to come across in any decent manner. That isn't a bad thing. The best you can do with subtle expressions in animation is usually in the form of a still frame of a character's face or something, which might not be fitting, depending on the mood of the scene.

Subtle doesn't always mean hard to notice. Fine, delicate movements are subtle, like how gif related goes from worried to happy in a very fine and smooth transition, it's not exaggerated. And I disagree on the medium demanding exaggeration as proved by Disney, KyoAni and Takeuchi, it can work.

Read the reply chain, that video you posted is done in 1s. It shines because there's more frames to work with and make those subtle movements. Anime has a handicap for this since the budged doesn't allow it but some animators can still manage to accomplish subtlety.

Eli Lewis
Eli Lewis

I think it's more about tradition than budget (time constraints, rather).

Even when some animators have the necessary resources to do something on ones, they choose not to because they've learned to do things differently.
It's a whole different school of animation, sadly with its clear downsides (same applies to western animation. Western action has always been less impactful, even now with 3D.)

Why would you assign your best animator to work on the climactic action sequence of the episode, when you could instead give that part to one of the good animators, and have your best animator instead use his abilities to make the character animation better and more convincing in a less climactic scene?

Because audiences are more impressed by a good action scene than good character acting.

A single student can do a 2D film over the course of a weekend. A 48-hour film is literally a thing almost every animation student does at least once. The only one talking nonsense is you. 3D isn't less expensive, and doing it well is BARELY faster.

Of course 3DCG is cheaper. With a few clicks of mouse you can do something that would take hours to draw by hand.

Landon Reed

what is modeling/rigging

let me guess, you also think electronic music is as simple as "a few clicks of a mouse" too

Camden Wilson
Camden Wilson

Doing 3D well is stupidly hard compared to 2D animation simply because in order for it to look decent it's got to be made with insane levels of detail and imperfections have to be added manually for it to not get trapped in the uncanny valley. Ultrasimplistic chibi CG doesn't suffer from this, but the sort of art style you'd use for an actual show does.

Compare this with 2D where 70% of the details can be left out or hinted at because the viewer's mind will fill in the rest and imperfections are an inherent part of the artform because it's rendered by a human with imperfect motor control and imperfect mental perception of shapes, shading, etc

There are some details that humans are simply better at rendering than computers because when we render a subject on paper, we're encoding shitloads of subtleties directly into the image because we have an innate sense of how those things appear, while a computer is clueless. It skips the info-stripping process of modeling entirely.

Hudson Sullivan
Hudson Sullivan

>>141891911
The same could be said for 2D animation, or really anything. Doing is the easy part, doing WELL is difficult. And 3D animation, due to the intense learning curve of most software, is arguably harder to do well. You can create a competent 2D animation with nothing but a pencil and a notepad, given enough time.

This, exactly. There are definite applications for 3D, and in some areas it might be better (usually for effects in otherwise 2D animation), but the technology just isn't at a point where you can have quite the same degree of artistic and creative freedom.

Don't forget how organic subjects are a royal bitch to make look good with CG, and unless you're doing a show about robots you're going to need be able to do organic subjects well.

Even mechs are hard with CG animation - good looking CG mech stills aren't that hard, but CG mech animation looks like total ass 99.9% of the time because 3D animators too often have the mass, kinetic, and cinematic intelligence of a turnip. Good 2D animators have a far, FAR better grasp on how to make mechs look and feel massive and heavy and know which camera angles give the best impact even if the computer absolutely schools them when it comes to keeping geometry and shading correct between frames.

Don't forget how organic subjects are a royal bitch to make look good with CG
muh CalArts "giant head, big-ass eyes, everyone looks like a stuffed doll" artstyle. Ugh, hate that shit. I actually haven't seen much CG anime (outside its occasional use in the Eva rebuilds) so my thoughts on it are mostly shaped by Western CG. I feel like the point you made about organic subjects and giving realistic "weight" to models brings up a huge problem with CG. As technology improves and more realistic CG is possible, it only gets exponentially more difficult to animate without falling into that uncanny valley. If studios can't even get the CG we have now to look decent without blowing tens of billions of dollars, there's gonna come a point where it's just more practical to animate in 2D.

Why is there no notable black animator?

The first part looks pretty cool actually if not for the video game bobbing.

3D animation, due to the intense learning curve of most software, is arguably harder to do well
It's not even comparable to the learning curve of drawing. Anyone can learn to use software in a relatively short time.

because you're on Sup Forums. flips are as black as it gets in japan.
