I'll throw my name in the hat.
It's few and far between for shows where the entirety is shot like that. I wouldn't be surprised if isn't simply a case of someone's monitor being set to a resolution with a ratio with more vertical space than 16.9 and bars get added in whatever media player they are using rather than the player stretching the image out of it's aspect ratio.
Anyways, this series is actually like that for the entire time. Just tell the user to crop their images. If they don't know how, there is a free program called PhotoScape that will let them batch crop everything all at once.
Probably about 1-3 hours each week. Sometimes it's more, sometimes it's less. There's usually like three shows that I watch week-to-week (right now it's Naruto, SOA2, and Akame ga Kill) and then I might watch some episodes of some older show I've been meaning to catch up on
Early One Piece (and by early I'm talking like the first 200-300 episodes) is god awful for animation.
There's some low budget anime that was never going to be really popular and had budgetary constraints on why it couldn't be well animated and companies just had to do the best they could with what they had. One Piece was a cash cow and it's issues were the production committee simply wanting to cut every corner and squeeze every penny out of the series they could get, quality be dammed. Some stuff may technically worse (although OP is legit really terrible animation and not simply less than it should have been) but OP should take the crown imo because both the manga and anime had become insanely popular and Toei was still refusing to put any quality and funds into the production whatsoever until like 5 years into the series. It got even worse when they added a ton of previous episode recap on top of having like a 5 minute opening theme to so that they'd have less run-time to animate.
@Marshal Victory: I don't agree with that at all I don't think most people so either. I never said that everything not written by the original author is better than anything written by the original author. I said that the original author is rarely seen as the best writer on a series. You mention DC and DC totally proves that. How many people out there honestly feel that the stories told in Detective Comics are better than The Killing Joke, The Dark Knight Returns, or Year One? Like I was saying, the original creator is rarely seen as the best or only good writer to ever touch a series?
I wouldn't mind seeing HxH go a Fullmetal Alchemist approach and letting some new writers tell their own stories in the universe and have control over it until Togashi decides to get his act together, which he hasn't for years with constant hiatuses and poor quality art thrown about.
I thought the point was to watch bad shows?
I wish the series could continue, even if it was filler. In long running comics, rarely is the inventor considered the best writer to have ever worked on the series. I think anime and manga could work the same if they were given free reign to do whatever they wanted like in comics.
I've only played School days. It was cool. I've never played a game with so many radically different endings that are fleshed out with the same production values as the rest of the game. I would play other dating sims or visual novels but they're also so cheaply put together compared to School Days that it turns me off.
I wish that poll had a non-loser version of Yes. I played School Days because I liked the anime and thought it could be fun... not because I'd rather have sex with cartoon characters than real women or trying to use them as like a training lesson in talking to the opposite sex
Well, there's a lot more variety in anime than there is in a single genre of a single company of american animation
I don't even understand the point of saying this. Of course there is more variety in an entire medium that there is in a single genre from a single company. It would be ridiculous for their not to be. That's like saying there's more variety in music as a whole than in any one genre of music or there's more variety in the entire color spectrum than there is in the color green. Duh, of course there is.
@Marshal Victory: Again, you're not citing references that pertain to this. You're citing military people getting harassed. Sinoun did not go to some foreign country and murder people. A violent criminal came onto her soil and she protected her family. Find examples a someone protecting their family and being teased for it. Not indirectly like trying to tie going to Vietnam as protecting their family but something direct where the threat comes to them, the kid saves the day, and is then teased for it.
I just don't think that would happen in the US. Or rather, you might have some people teasing but the overwhelming majority of people would see the kid as a hero. In SAO it was the opposite where the overwhelming majority of people viewed her as a bad person for saving the day. 99/100 times, stopping a robbery and saving the day will get you seen as a hero in the US, not a villain like in SAO. I don't get how this is even arguable between people who live in the US or grew up in the culture.
@Marshal Victory: If a little kid stopped a bank robbery in the US, they'd be seen as a hero. Sinoun might get teased for other stuff but she's not going to get teased because she was a 5-year-old marksman and a hero. Comparing that to a war veteran is flaky considering basically every incident of war involving the US is the US going into a foreign country and killing people vs Sinoun's situation which is conceptually the total opposite.
I thought this episode really sucked. Nothing interesting happening and the story development was Kirito making some logic leaps that to me felt like maybe someone realized that they were not going to be able to wrap the story up in the amount of episodes they had left unless they found a way to basically fast forward what everyone knew to a certain point. A bunch of discovery actually happened off screen and in the past. The jump to it must be two people felt like they pulled it out of a hat and within like 1 minute of thinking about it they seemed to have discovered every aspect of it. I also thought it was funny that Kirito seemed to think that Death Gun was bound to some honor system and that the one in the room couldn't kill Sinoun until the signal was given. I thought that was silly because obviously if he's already there and has everything he needs to kill her, he could kill her regardless of whatever was happening in the game.
I decided to make this thread considering there are lots of users in here who complain that there aren't as many options in the ipad version of CV as the PC version. So I made this thread to fix that and tell you how to make CV in your mobile exactly the same as the PC version!
And huge thanks to @human_rocket for making a comment about this in another thread and showing me this trick. This thread couldn't be possible without you. :D
- Download Google Chrome from your respective app store.
- Open the app and go to [animevice]
- Log in your [AV] account
- Press the button on the top right and tap "Request Desktop version"
- Ta da! Now you can post pics/gifs, use pretty much all the stuff on the pc version and use it on your phone.
PS: I'm not sure if there is a thread like this already so I apologize if there is.
PS: I also apologize if the topic's title is grammatically incorrect, had to shorten the title to post this.
I'm asking for narratives that ACT like their characters are supposed to be legit heroes, but they act more like false heroes. Basically, the narrative is broken and excuses the characters actions when it really shouldn't.
I don't it necessarily means the narrative is broken. That could just be the perspective the writers chose to use and the entire point is for the viewer to notice this and start to take umbrage with the hero's actions.
Isn't Light Yagami that way? Even L did some bad stuff.
I feel like Light is not presented as a "hero" after like one or two episodes though. He is the protagonist and L is the antagonist but L is the hero and and Light is the villain.
@katmic: I go back to the days when he was all about teamwork, they show him training with Orochimaru and refusing to kill people, then he attacks Killer Bee and is looking out for his new teammates during the fights, raids the Kage summit and is still looking out for his teammates... then he fights Danzo and he's impaling Karin like "I don't care about my teammates!" and then challenging Team 7 to a fight for like no real reason. That was like, huh?
So ok, he's changed. He's out to attack Konoha. Then the war arc is happens and now he wants to save and protect everyone and goes back to being how he always was pretty much over some story about people being friends (as if this is the first time he's heard the concept of friendship). That was a quick personality 180°.
Now he's back to being crazy murder Sasuke and everybody must die.
There's never any subtlety or progression to his changes. It's always instant 180°.
They write Sasuke in such a flip-floppy way to me. He goes off and on to a berserker barrage that only seems in character if you take into fact how all over the place he's written. Anyways, I just hope the fight is cool and that entirety of it is well-animated.
- How did Kirito know Death Gun will pick the horse vehicle and not the buggy?
He's from SAO, a medieval fantasy game. When Kirito transferred over so did some of his skills. I could see a SAO player opting for a horse if for no reason other than already having been used to it.
I thought it was an interesting cultural thing though Sinon got teased as a kid because she stopped a robbery by shooting the robber. In the US she'd be rightfully seen as a hero and kids would think that was kinda cool.
