/av/ - Alternate Versions anon 02/12/2022 (Sat) 03:21:10 No. 740 [Reply]
Many classic anime have been re-released, re-scanned, re-mastered, and re-edited countless times. This is a thread where you can post about differences between versions of any anime, from shitty upscales and botched crops, to alternate scenes, animation, and extended cuts. Try to avoid spoilers, so that if someone checks the thread for the “definitive” version of whatever they’re trying to watch they don’t get spoiled.

>>740 I’ll start with a particularly (in)famous one: Ghost in the Shell 2.0. Over ten years after the original Ghost in the Shell movie was released, Mamoru Oshii went back to the film and re-worked it, changing the tint of the film from greens and blues to oranges and reds to better match that of Innocence (and possibly to distance it from The Matrix), recasting characters, and redubbing/rewriting several lines. Worst of all, several gorgeous, cel-animated sequences were replaced with shitty mid-2000s CGI renders. If you’re going to watch this movie (which you absolutely should if you somehow haven't already), stay as far away as possible from the 2.0 version. The original version has been released in bluray in just as good of a quality, and you’re only doing yourself a disservice by watching this disaster of a re-edit.

The first wapchan watch p/ar/ty suggestion thread! ranchant Board owner 01/14/2022 (Fri) 02:40:32 No. 159 [Reply] [Last]
To keep discussion on here fresh and to get a broader perspective on retro anime, I'll be hosting monthly watch p/ar/ties on cytube. I'm planning on this first one being held on the 29nd at 15:00 UTC, which hopefully works for most wapnons, and will run from 4-6 hours in total. This thread is for submitting suggestions for the stream. Less well known or obscure suggestions would be appreciated as I know there are a lot of works people want to discuss but few have actually seen. >Voting has finished, thanks everyone!

Did anyone else see how insane this was on the stream? They really didn't fuck around back then.

>>394 The part 2 opening is better and more iconic than the part 1 OP, but everything else about part 1 is better and more iconic than part 2
Lupin didn't successfully steal a single thing in the first 4 episodes
>>393 Whenever they do the running animation like this I can't help but laugh.
>>393 the jail episode is pure kino

Education resource thread anon 01/30/2022 (Sun) 01:12:38 No. 414 [Reply]
This is a thread to provide resources for anons to educate themselves on the history, production process, and common critical language of anime and manga (I am less educated on manga personally, so my recommendations will be anime focused). Here is a useful article that is a great overview on anime as an artform, how it got to be the way it is, and what distinguishes it from cartoons: https://www.tofugu.com/japan/anime-vs-cartoons/ The Dragonball fandom has an excellent series of articles about the production process of your average television anime (both the retro and digital workflows are explained), as well as a map of all of the staff and what they do: https://www.kanzenshuu.com/animation-production/process/ https://www.kanzenshuu.com/animation-production/positions-and-roles/ Here is another article that helps establish a baseline knowledge for talking about animation quality, or more specifically some pitfalls to avoid when discussing it: https://www.kanzenshuu.com/animation-production/quality/ For those who want a much more in depth and technical book on an academic study of anime as an artform, there are several books I could recommend, but by far I find this the most useful: https://film7000.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/thomaslamarre-2009-theanimemachine.pdf Finally if you'd like some insight into the history of the American anime community, this is a great book: https://u1lib.org/book/5612293/e70b96 Feel free to share your own resources if you have any, the more educated the community, the more we can appreciate what we love!
