This is just to collect ideas from the community. Here's an idea I had for this: Maybe a user editable wiki? I realized with the directory that it would be better if other users could edit it, and I could also reupload all the saved horus media that's up on e-hentai (probably converted to webp to save file space)
>>1725 I'm pretty sure a FANDOM UY wiki already exists. Unless you wanna make it 10x better.

>>1933 Sorry if I replied so late, but I agree with your statements. But I will form a quick counterargument that some people would make about your opinion on the backgrounds of the reboot. Many would probably say that having high quality backgrounds won't matter because of how fast the reboot's pace is. On top of that, some people may say that you're nitpicking every last detail of the original so you can give it a much lower rating. Now I don't really believe in that counterargument but I decided to write it out for you so can debate it. As for standalone viewing I can agree that this episode is not very good. I also did rewatch the original's first episode just for reference and I can see how it does things way better the reboot. Like it being actually funny (mostly part 2 of the episode). Overall thou I can understand your arguments on why my ratings for the original are null. I just wanted to give the reboot a shot.

Hope everyone appreciates all the little interface changes I've made around here, mostly just to make everything feel tidier. Also, this thread is going to be archived, probably at the end of the month, since >>>/lum/ is up now (unless people really want it still around). Made some new banners and standardized the look and resolutions of the older ones. We should push to get more users from 4lum on here imo.
>>1944 I think it could be moved to /lum/ like that /vr/ thread. Since this thread is currently the most popular one on the site right now.
>>1945 That's true. I just want this thread to level off eventually so fresher threads can be made.

>>2062 I will forever hate the name on that third video, spoiled me on something I had no idea about. My own fault for looking the OST up for Danpei's theme but I just didn't expect that shit to be there, could've easily called it something like Rikishi's Theme 2 or something. Speaking of AnJ music, here are Joe and Carlos's theme when they're entering the ring. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBlIJicsD8A https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbI-83fCync Really cool choices imo.

So I know the 20th Century in general is the gud shit, but I argue that the '90s, (or rather, from about 1988 onwards), was the absolute best, in terms of animation quality and good draftmanship, as well as actual directing,creating atmosphere and unique imagery.All those little special effects were great too-The glistening, the glowing,the blurry scenes, heat waves etc. The 70s and 80s were good, but to me it felt sort of like the animators and director and writers etc were still establishing themselves. The 90s is when they found their feet and took off running in practically every aspect. I think this era ended in around 2003,and I'm not sure why, maybe digital was just hard to get used to-- but I read somewhere that in the late '90s and early '00s there was a sort of "anime brain drain"-- that is, a lot of older greats left the industry, and the new young talent had a lack of mentorship.Of course there was also increased appeal to otaku and probably some budget issues.

>>637 I find that anime was more consistently high quality in terms of animation quality from about 84 up until about 91 personally, maybe up until 94, and generally 70s and early 80s anime have the strongest storyboarding. There were some major innovations in the 90s, but shows fell back on still images far more, shot composition got a bit less inventive, Shinbo is the person I can think of who really stands out who wasn't already active in the 80s, and before the OVA market collapsed they were pumping out way too many low quality ones, fewer lavishly animated films as well. When TV anime spiked in 98 quite a few of the shows looked kind of bad too. That general level of high quality we were seeing in mid-late 80s TV anime, when the market for it contracted seemed very distant by that point. Keeping a show looking good for almost 100 episodes straight like the did with Maison Ikkoku feels downright impossible for the industry to pull off at any other time. There were some huge accomplishments and overcoming of past restrictions, in the 90s though, like Hamaji's Resurrection, but then in the 80s we had stuff like Be Invoked, Birth and Akira which did the same. A small handful of realist animators definitely reached peak skill level by the mid 90s, Ohira, Iso, Utsunomiya, Inoue, Okiura, but then Kanada school guys like Kanada and Yamashita were doing the same a decade earlier.
>>648 THIS
>>648 That's an interesting proposition.What do you think was the highlight reel of this era?As in, a list of maybe 10 of that era's anime that one ought to see to get what you're talking about...
>>650 As in the 80s or 90s? Things like 90s anime breaking down into stills more requires watching lots and lots of TV anime from both decades, so a highlight reel is less applicable there. Or are you wondering what were in my opinion the boundary breaking productions of the 90s?
>>645 The first 20 episodes of Ranma are insanely good, it's such a shame that the rest of the chapters are so bad. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7osqmI9OCXo

Does anyone have experience buying cels or other production materials off of ebay/yahoo auctions? I've been contemplating picking one up but it seems like the sort of thing where you could get easily scammed. Any advice?
>>634 There's a thread on this already so maybe one of the replies there will help you: https://wapchan.org/ar/res/495.html For ebay I'd say pay attention to the seller's feedback ratings and read the description, not sure about yahoo auctions though since I don't have much experience with them.
>>635 Oops, I'm dumb. Thanks anon

Rose Of Versailles anon 05/06/2022 (Fri) 20:43:18 No. 606 [Reply]
I've been watching this anime. So far it's a simple but well done story. Due it's age it lacks in animation sequences, but it more than makes up for it with Dezaki's great directing. And the artstyle is really charming.

A tv channel decided to air the whole serie in one day so i decided to do a rewatch, i remember the animation being more fluid.
Seemingly RoV is getting a new adaption for it's 50th. I wonder how it'll be done. I think the original is perfect as is, so I'm not sure what, if anything, they can add.
>>612 Aesthetically and shot-wise it's really good, but animation is poor. So maybe they'd improve that aspect. But I doubt it would look as good

>>610 Correction: Ikeda was the manga author. The first director on the anime was Tadao Nagahama, who had previously done Star of the Giants and the Robot Romance Trilogy. I believe he left because of some sort of artistic conflict, and then Dezaki took over. Sadly, Nagahama died later that year, which is probably why you haven't heard of him. >>613 Yeah, the animation is weirdly stiff, especially in the early eps. I think Toei didn't allocate enough budget for the costumes, all those ruffles and trimming must've been hell on the animators.
>>606 >Due it's age it lacks in animation sequences I wouldn't really associate that with age. Stuff from the 70s like Gatchaman, Gutsy Frog, The Romance Robot Trilogy, lots of the WMT shows, etc all have plenty of nice animation. It seems more like a Dezaki thing - strong shot composition and drawings, but generally a low drawing count. Though Cobra is nuts animation wise a lot of the time. I love ROV, I need to re-watch it again as it's been too long. While of course some of the nobles can be over the top evil, the overall situation was presented with a pretty good degree of nuance, and its hard to not love Oscar.

Retro Anime that you want to see subbed. anon 01/08/2022 (Sat) 11:39:36 No. 581 [Reply]
Self explanatory. For me it would be three late 80s Studio Comet produced TV shows all with Hirosho Kanazawa as character designer and heavily involved as an animation director. I believe all three are manga adaptations, and they all have the similar kind of pudgy faced caricatured character designs that are really unique. High School Kimengumi, Tsuide ni Tonchinkan and Meimon! Daisan Yakyuubu. The latter two I watched raw, with Tsuide ( screenshots shown here) being a well executed slapstick comedy, albeit a bit repetitive. Meimon is an incredibly well done sports drama with storyboards that feel somewhat reminiscent of Dezaki, as it was his student, Hiroshi Fukutomi who directed it. The animation quality was outstandingly good and consistent, full of subtle weighty convincing motion during the baseball games. Kimengumi has its movie subbed and I enjoyed it, but the series has yet to be picked up.
