They're taking their time. One of the big deals about this upcoming show between I.G and Netflix is that there's no strict schedule to follow. They have all the time required to make the most sakuga show as possible.

When it's finally out all 12 episodes will drop simultaneously. Something that's never happened with an anime.

Because there is no broadcasting schedule, which lends itself to sloppy animation. In all actuality, there is probably a timed scheduled somewhere. But if you kept up with Netflix originals at all you would know how flexible they are when it comes to their shows.
They have to be because the entire season will released all at once.

http://qz.com/646874/its-not-your-imagination-us-netflix-has-a-much-smaller-selection-than-it-used-to/

In March of 2014, the US Netflix library contained approximately 6,500 movies and 1,600 television shows. As of yesterday (March 23), Netflix offered its US subscribers 4,330 movies and 1,200 TV shows—decreases of 33% and 26%, respectively.

They try to make up for it with more netflix originals, but still pales in comparison to the number of movies and shows they've removed. Not to mention most of the originals are shit like adam sandler movies or TV shows no one ever watches or talks about.

They require you to submit personally identifying information and financial info, pay money, and require you to use a proprietary OS and software with DRM, just so you can watch video.

You do. A properly configured media player like mpv will produce better quality video than watching through Adobe Flash in a web browser, especially if the video is scaled.

getting scammed by a huge corporation and being proud of it

On top of all the cons I already mentioned, they have a severely lacking library compared to torrent trackers like Animebytes. These torrent trackers contain almost every single anime ever made, Netflix only has a small fraction of that. Basically you're just paying money for something that is worse. If they offered a service that is better then fine it's understandable, but they don't.

Most studios have their niche. Trigger is always cartoony action/comedy. SHAFT is supernatural/ecchi/comedy. Bones is action-adventure/comedy. Dogakobo is SoL/comedy. PA Works is drama/SoL. Only huge studios like IG, Sunrise, Toei, Madhouse, TMS or OLM have make a wider range of genres, because they're huge and can afford a flop or two every year. Small studios like the ones I mentioned play it safe by doing what they know, otherwise they end up like Manglobe.

Camden Moore
Camden Moore

Looking forward to this, I'm glad there may finally be a studio to make animation on the level of GodAni. Sure it took the netflix bucks to do it but it's happening

Although I don't expect the budget given to IG to be enormous like some people seem to think. The only reason some of their shows like HoC cost millions per episode is because they literally have to pay Kevin Spacey and now Robin Wright $500k+ per episode. No one at IG has that type of star power or influence in the west

Parker Barnes
Parker Barnes

All Netflix is doing is funding shit. I don't know why you people have such a hard time understanding this. They want to be the primary distributor, not an afterthought who gets sold streaming rights for a show everybody has already watched. It's part of their larger plan of breaking into Japan, because they have had no real luck garnering subscriptions from Japan up til now. Because the only Japanese content they offer is old shit or stuff that's been dubbed/subbed for westerners. They need Japanese content for Japanese audiences, but the Japanese media companies don't really like playing ball with foreign companies, especially not a streaming service since they're so leery of streaming as a platform.

Breaking into anime by convincing a studio to let them be funded by Netflix in exchange for the show premiering on Netflix first is what they're trying to do. If the show is a hit and makes people money in Japan, it will prove that Netflix is a viable partner for other Japanese media companies and open up the country to them.

Get it now?

James Myers

What tells you he's not judging their whole work?I personally like some of their stuff but still am overall disappointed how often they waste great production values on mediocre source material.
You're problem is simply that criticized a studio you like.

John Jones
John Jones

For their anime strategy to work, Netflix needs to stop living in an alternative universe where Sidonia, Ajin, and Nanatsu no Taizai are "Netflix originals" that they can hold back on until the end of the season when they can release them all at once.

Doesn't work for weekly airing anime because the fanbase will just pirate it as it airs through fansubs.

They had an arrangement with Breaking Bad in the UK where they released it weekly as it aired in the US, they should take that approach more.

Eli Ortiz
Eli Ortiz

I love I.G. They sometimes make some successful stuff for the industry. But if Netflix really wanted to break into the Japanese audience wouldn't they make some pandering shit to get the GuP/Love shit audience?

Since the casual anime audience is there.

Samuel Barnes
Samuel Barnes

They licensed those anime for westerners so they figured they would be safe if no other streaming service got simulcast rights. They didn't figure in fansubbing. What they're trying to do now though is secure rights to anime for Japanese people, so that the show will actually premier first on Netflix and might not even air on TV at all.

Cooper Sanders
Cooper Sanders

No need to be upset. Wasn't up to date on all the details. But let's not pretend Netflix or any other company that decides to get involved doesn't or couldn't eventually have influence on the content of the actual shows.

Tyler Perez
Tyler Perez

What tells you he's not judging their whole work?
Because he's basically saying that if KyoAni didn't do two things he didn't like, he "may" have respected them, as if the whole of their series didn't have many other things of value. I don't know how can you think otherwise about him.

Anthony Fisher

Owen Evans
Owen Evans

Why would they want to? The whole reason they're shopping for anime rights is because they recognize it as a hot commodity and want in on its profits. Moreover they're trying to get into the Japanese market, which means producing shows the Japanese want to watch. If they knew better than the Japanese what Japanese people wanted, they wouldn't be bothering trying to work with Japanese studios.

Julian Rodriguez
Julian Rodriguez

IGPX

Grayson Myers
Grayson Myers

They didn't figure in fansubbing
How is that even possible, the existence of fansubs is basically the first thing you learn in anime licensing 101, for a long time the popularity of fansubs was used to gauge the viability of a show for licensing, Haruhi being one prominent example.

might not even air on TV at all
If anime Blu-ray sales are anything to go by, they'll be lucky to get even 5000 new subscribers who signed up just to watch their new anime.

Jaxson Sanchez
Jaxson Sanchez

They probably didn't have a lot of options. This is new ground here, you've never really had a major studio signing on to do a full length production to premier on a streaming service. It's a big risk for the studio because what if it bombs and they make no money off it? My guess is Netflix was probably offering a truly ridiculous amount of money and absurdly high royalties for it, and Production IG decided to take a chance.

Jacob Cox
Jacob Cox

Even though GuP, and LL are huge they have roof's over their head of how actually big they are.
Shit Like GitS, Jin-roh, FLCL isn't cringe worthy can can actually be picked up in more house holds around the world. Most normal people aren't going to be attracted to shows like GuP and LL.

Robert Howard
Robert Howard

I mean they might have underestimated fansubs. It's an easy thing to do, even most fans only consume mainstream anime on TV underestimate the scope and scale of fansubbing.

Owen Sullivan
Owen Sullivan

Netflix is more interested in making money than anything, and LL is extremely profitable. But because of that it's very unlikely any of the parties involved in producing LL will let Netflix aboard their gravy train. I mean if you have a machine that prints money why change it up by adding in unnecessary parts?

Brody Stewart
Brody Stewart

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this aimed at an international audience? I don't find it difficult to believe Netflix giving suggestions/rules on certain things in order to broaden appeal and avoid offending Western sensibilities. Especially since they're putting a lot of money into this. Not saying this will be the case, just acknowledging the possibility.

John Morales
John Morales

Not him, but I honestly don't think you will ever see a Netflix original that they actually funded being about moe or idol activities.
It would lower their standards

Lincoln Anderson
Lincoln Anderson

It's more likely IG was paid a sum to work on the show by Netflix like you would see from Aniplex and other studios. Netflix gauges a show's success by how many of the subscribers watch it anyways and it's something they keep to themselves. When they release BDs down the line that might be split with IG.

I'm not a quality fag but you are actually objectively wrong here.

You can't just dismiss things codec's do as "placebo" because it literally changes the image quality which is what we are looking at here.

If that's irrelevant to you then whatever, but it still objectively looks different and that guy is arguing it looks better, so you don't really have an argument. You could tell that guy to post screens if you care, but you can't just deny reality.

Isaac Gomez

Logan Adams

I support stream sites because they really do give us more access to more anime. The sub groups that are out there can't even hope to cover all of what is put out in a season so having subs done by another company frees them up to work on other works (unless they also have an interest in whatever show is being subbed by the streaming companies). It gives us more access to more shows and if signing up for Crunchy Roll and Hulu (which has quite a few shows that are older with low/zero seeders) gets more translated, I'm game. The only reason I still pay for Netflix is because my family and a few friends use it. There's nothing of merit that you can't find elsewhere on Netflix in terms of anime.

My problem with that is that a single show will not typically make someone want to join a paid membership. The light anime watcher who just looks at a few shows and sticks to western live "television" might enjoy it as a bonus to their netflix subscription but someone like me (and I'm sure others on this board) don't see merit in paying for a single show. The issue with netflix for me is that their selection is very limited and most can be found on other streaming services. It has nothing for the bigger fan of anime to watch because it's selection is too small. Adding one anime that MIGHT be good really isn't selling me on keeping/getting that subscription.

The biggest thing I'm concerned about is potential poltard influence. Don't need that garbage in my board. I want Sup Forums to be as free and creative as it is able to be.

Animes prime demographic has been doing a terrible job of buying the BDs these past seasons.

The only grounds to praise Kyoani on are animation.

I.G> Kyoani Writing, artwork, atmosphere and promotion

IG already says they think Kyoani is great and Kyoani also helped found IG.
Stop trying to make pointless studio wars you loser.

Just posting reasons why Netflix chose them. I honestly couldn't see a better fit for Netflix then I.G
I dare say they are still the most ambitions anime studio out there.

How can anyone hate on the GOAT?

I mean sure they are shit now but they weren't so before.

Madhouse suit them more.

Maybe next time. But on their first go around, they needed to put their stock in a studio who's actually been relevant recently

IG ain't made nothing big since the PP movie.

OPM actually made Madhouse relevant again.

I so wish that I.G. could use the netflix money to fund a 3rd gig instead of this.

They were responsible for SnK, their sports adaptions actually shit on OPM in terms of sales. PP helped out too but they just have more royalties all around in the industry. Most western company's are way more familiar with them too.

SnK was 3 years ago.

OPM actually made Madhouse relevant again.
OPM took animators from all over the studio system, it was a dream team group and that's also why it was so short.

Big O second season.
Didn't make sense but wasn't too shabby either.

Anime studios stop trying to make sakuga since western audiences don't care for fancy animation

Joshua Gutierrez

Production I.G. has bad animation
Given enough production time and budget, any studio can do well. Some will do better than others. Stop arguing about inane shit that hasn't even come out with key visuals yet.
