Don't think we have a shorts thread. So I'll kick one off with "Me! Me! Me!"

I know it's more less considered a music video, but seems cooler than that and it's 6:23 long. lol

Buddy clued me in to it and like many things I'm late to the party on it. Just thought it was trippy and pretty badass albeit bizarre in various places. The animation itself is just so fluid.

I guess maybe I wrote >>247 out of some form of intellectual/subconscious desperation, or just plain boredom brought on by my net surf.

Maybe I'm just in a rough patch. Maybe all the _ is finally getting to me in this unguarded state of mine. Maybe I'm holding myself back, remembering who I'm talking with, the rules, the new site. . .

I can't tell whether the rando makes less sense, or the anime. These are both bordering on singularity-breaking.

I’m probably gonna watch a couple more episodes to decide whether to keep going or kick the series. Ikuhara is…well, kinda insane, really. (That, and I heard his last show, Mawaru Penguindrum, wasn’t all that good overall.)

I realize Japanese culture is much different from others in regards to relationship statuses. Such as it's not common to just announce you are in a relationship with someone. (Also the mistranslation of "friend" which should have been comrade)
But it really does feel like Asuna Kirito stopped having a relationship after the first season, which is a shame because it would have been nice to see an anime focus on a relationship development between two characters, especially two that met "online".
Yes there are moments where they are together in some way, but the interaction between them is very limited. To put it into perspective, Korra and Asami have a more credible relationship than Kirito and Asuna.

Things I did enjoy from this season were the animation, most of those fight scenes are simply amazing. I did enjoy Kirito taking advantage of his girlish figure. I did enjoy Sinon's character (though her story arch end, felt a little rushed) I'm enjoying the Yuuki arch because it is both touching and nice to see Asuna kick some ass again.

>But it really does feel like Asuna Kirito stopped having a relationship after the first season

… Bullshit?

I seriously question whether you actually watched the second season, if you came to that conclusion somehow. Asuna is constantly going to be by Kirito's side, there's that whole bit where he only survives the final showdown in BoB because he draws strength from her, part of Asuna's friction with her mother is that her mother knows she wants to marry Kirito…

>To put it into perspective, Korra and Asami have a more credible relationship than Kirito and Asuna.


Okay, now I know you didn't watch the second season, and I'm pretty sure you didn't watch Korra either.

Two words:
Pure Mail
(^Warning though, that is a Hentai; not necessarily an Anime).

Coincidentally, you learn somethings(more) things about Japanese culture(mannerisms) through hentai then you could ever with certain Anime.(<Minus the obvious fetishes and other nuanced 'hyperboles'.) Much like anime, there are certain hentais to look into for accuracy, and others to stay away from.

I miss animated Hentai though, very much.
Either it was piracy, bad economy, loss of interest(!??), or the combination of the three that shut it down sometime early this decade. Seldom does one show up these days, and it's a real crap shoot if it's even worth looking into.

So to answer this question:

>>213

My emotion is rage and sadness. I would love to have the old days of Hentai back when there were new Ovas every month(about 2 or 3). Now at days, we'd be lucky if we could even get 2 or 3 a year. Pains me so much, I'd rather just forget that new hentai even exists than to suffer the anguish of knowing the existence of an otherwise splendid Ova series that was utterly and completely ruined by "Digimo", possibly never to be released uncensored. So much hatred/rage against those involved in the creation of those asinine censorship laws(penal code 75? I think that was it) of Japan. But, what you gonna do.

…The very first episode of season two has a scene with Asuna talking about how her new life goal seems to be "marry Kirito and be his perfect traditional waifu-chan and pop out babies for him". Did you even watch any of it?

I guess they didn’t see the creators saying they'd planned it out since Season 2, the interactions between Korra and Asami during Seasons 3 and 4, and the whole ‘Korra didn’t write to anyone but Asami during that three-year “vacation”’ thing in Season 4.

Again, we're talking about the same kind of Special Olympians who can look at what complete shameless lesbians Vanille and Fang are together and screech "SISTERS, I TELL YOU! THEY ONLY SEE EACH OTHER AS SIIIIIIISTEEEEEEERRRRRS!!"

Hell, even better, these types of dipshits can watch Princess Bubblegum deeply sniff the shirt Marceline gave her, listen to "I'm Just Your Problem", AND eventually get confirmation from the lead writers of Adventure Time that PB and Marceline were in a relationship once at some point before the show begins, and they'll still wail about how depraved and deluded Bubbline shippers are–right before going off to write more Elsanna fanfics, no doubt.

While I don't have any sort of problem with them getting together, I am on the "it was poorly done" bandwagon. Probably not forced since it WAS hinted, but I think it was properly developed. But then again, this is my opinion and probably wanted a bit more out of ending.

Things like that Macross bit you mentioned and the infamous ‘disappearing tables’ bit from G.I. Joe (see the attached GIF) are actually some of the ‘rough edges’ that I’m talking about.

Yeah, it’s awful-looking. It’s a sign of shoddy animation (or a lack of a budget), and it certainly detracts from the overall experience of watching a show/movie when you see such obvious ‘flaws’.

But to me, they’re also a bit endearing. A full-digital show/movie could just fix these issues after the fact (and anime does it all the time with DVD/BD upgrades), but with cel animation, all those mistakes are essentially permanent. Hasbro could conceivably go back to the masters and find ways to put those tables back into the animation or something, but it would take away a bit of the ‘charm’.

I’m not excusing bad animation with this, though. Cel or digital, bad animation deserves to be shat upon.

You couldn't even count the number of things that are wrong with that fucking sequence. The tables disappearing briefly is, like, the least fucked-up.

There appears to be at least 1 thing that I've not ever seen done correctly with digital.

That's the semitransparent super translucent special (brightening, then dimming) effect(Not even in Thundercats 2011).
Know what I mean? Like when they shoot lasers or charge up and you get that bright corona burning and dulling effect.

All the digital attempts look very platy, and the effect just doesn't carry.

"Cel animation is a finished product, but it does have a bit of that grit from the real medium it's based on."

Yeah, grit. As if it comes to life from the medium. As apposed to say, something 'flat' that was fabricated in a 'lab'.

I guess we can agree that although digital may be superior, it also caries that synthetic material(plastic, platy) feel with it(No carry over with 3D, cause that's kind of it's own thing). You get an authentic kind of feel with cel, and although that may not matter to some, it could be a deciding factor for others.

It could also have something to do with spacial perspective(depth?); digital tends to be broad(flat?), where cel tends to be focused, with beautiful panoramic scenes(in some animations) as apposed to digitals flat type/linear backgrounds. Maybe it's also because digital is too crisp at times.
