"no really. why is anime so fucking popular?"


          

even to black niggas. shit is surreal to me.

it's like they think that shit speaks to them.

to me, it looks like action cartoons, set in asia. with fireballs.

is it simply because there's so much of it? there does seem to be a never ending content stream.

what's the appeal?

      But that's the market not the art.
Mar 13th 2015
150
Outside of Japan, it is.
Mar 12th 2015
54
      its relatively niche in japan too
Mar 12th 2015
67
      pretty much. that's why they can get away w/ so much degenerate
Mar 12th 2015

      The market may be, but the genre is robust

In response to Reply # 1


          

it seems campy.

like blaxploitation?

i like king of the hill. and the south park movie.

those were nice cartoons.

i feel like afrosamuri might take itself too seriously.

as do all anime.

...

is it the art?

the story?

the long, ever-available episodic content?

Anime can cross boundaries and do things you can't accomplish with Live Action.

Spirited Away is an incredible adventure and has superb story telling.

In response to Reply # 14


          

look up LeSean Thomas. he's been on his media tour for Cannonbusters

he moved to Korea for a while because thats where most American animation is done to try and understand it all. He worked on Boondocks and Black Dynamite with JM Animation and Korra with Studio Mir

Here's the doc he did with Creative Control
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvGqAanK0FI

and here's a recent podcast he did with Meltdown where he goes over all his stuff and how animation works overseas

In response to Reply # 8


          

Americans prefer use a more acting, motion style. most frames are different
since most of this animation happens overseas, there's a lot of hands-off direction which can lead to some weird mistakes. less so now because its been going on so long.

in anime, its more keyframe/pose based they can afford to be more detailed, but because of tight budgets and schedules, not a lot of actual animating gets to happen. Its more about economy. Some shows have A LOT of still images and recycled animation.

its just two sides of the same coin. I don't prefer Ninja Scroll over Steven Universe. neither is better, just different.

...doesn't mean they draw and animate much better than here. Stiff poses, mouths that don't match the words, and yes that includes the original Japanese vocals, same few drawing styles on damn near all them joints.

....in its animation than our best. The drawing styles of too many of their shows and movies are too similar to each other. I'd put their stories over ours since we don't do enough adult oriented animation but that's it. When it comes to character design, we have way more variations and our top level animation is way more fluid.

Which was my point. It's not all flying people and fireballs.
There's anime for food, abstraction, sci fi, robots, fantasy, murder mystery, sports, drama ... etc.
It's such an expansive universe of art, that someone saying they don't like anime because they don't like flying and fireballs is akin to someone not liking a museum because they don't like French Impressionism.

I mean it's like asking why comic books, or comic book movies are popular.

I've never been a huge anime head but I made sure to get home in time for Toonami when I was a kid.

And as a few posters have mentioned in this thread, compared to American cartoons the art is both A) MUCH more impressive and B) the subject matter is MUCH more mature.

I'm willing to bet Dragon Ball Z and the Street Fighter II movie got a lot of dudes into anime in the 90s. That SF movie is bananas.

particularly in long story form.

So yeah, there's some cliche's in the genre that can be annoying (all the male protagonists are 17, women are eyecandy, the comedy that even a five year old would find childish), but there's some gems. And its one of the few places where you can go really nuts with the ideas because you aren't beholden to ratings, just nerdy fans.

I don't watch as much nowadays since there are so many good shows in the US I barely can catch. But shit like Death Note, Cowboy Bepop id take the Pepsi challenge against any HBO show

Shit is amazing and so complex. I mean, look at this description from Wikipedia:

"The show is a hybrid of multiple genres, including comedy, the detective caper, action fiction and thrillers, and film noir. The musical style was emphasized in many of the episode titles. Multiple philosophical themes are explored using the characters, including existentialism, existential ennui, loneliness, and the effect of the past on the protagonists. It draws extensively from multiple western genres, including the western and pulp fiction. The series also makes specific references to or pastiches multiple films, including the works of John Woo and Bruce Lee, Midnight Run and Alien.

The series also includes extensive references and elements from science fiction, bearing strong similarities to the cyberpunk fiction of William Gibson. Several planets and space stations in the series are made in Earth's image. The streets of celestial objects such as Ganymede resemble a modern port city, while Mars features shopping malls, theme parks, casinos and cities. Cowboy Bebop's universe is filled with video players and hyperspace gates, eco-politics and fairgrounds, spaceships and Native American shamans. This presentation, and the balance of ethnic groups, has been described as "one third Chinese, two thirds Western"

Probably because its good.

It depends what you watch and what you are into. There are several anime series that I just love.

Cowboy Bebop
Michiko y Hachin - is AWESOME!!!!
Naruto - was long but good
Afro Samurai
Bleach
Blood + - I really liked this one
Desert Punk - seriously one of my favorites. Its ecchi, but funny as hell!!!!


There are plenty out there. I occasionally watch now (Before Zoe, I watched a lot more). Being a black geek girl, when guys find out you like sports, anime and video games, its like you are a frakkin unicorn.

that's how we all got into anime. One cat showed us Fist of the Northstar, made me a copy, I made a copy for one of my boys, and we circulated it like that.

I had neighbors who were nerds into Anime Robotech/ Macross, Dragon Ball, Akira, Fist of the North Star etc so that is how I knew of it.

I didn't hang with anyone in school who was into anime that much and if they were they weren't passing tapes around.

With the internet you can pretty much stumble across anime and get into it on your own plus since cartoons have been killed for kids(Saturday mornings and things are leaning towards more adult centered and anime like animation (Toonami) I think it is made more palatable for people.

Vampire Hunter D (some of the first anime movies I saw edit).

If you can't watch 'Shingeki no Kyojin' (Attack On Titan) and get hype, you have no pulse.

If you can't see the appeal of 'Cowboy Bebop' or 'Samurai Champloo'... your loss, I guess.

Good anime has great stories, characters and animation allowing the story to
push beyond the boundaries of what live action could do. What's not to love?

I just saw the movie Lucy and all I could think was that it'd have been better as an anime.

For those who think Anime is all science fiction, I recommend you watch Naoki Urasawa's Monster. One of my favorite anime shows. It's a thriller type show with murder, intrigue and no fireballs.

Here's a link if you'd like to check it out.

Why in the shit is hip-hop so popular? Hip-hop is popular because it speaks to people. Anime/manga speak to people and gather audiences based on that appeal. We can play this game with any and everything popular.

Stop with the elitism bro.

Also, Ichiro Suzuki is the muthafuckin man.

Ichiro might just be some type of good luck charm when it comes to Japanese names.

when you hit 13-17 you're too old to watch the shit you been watching but live-action is still more or less boring. The regular american action shows are pretty tame and still trying to sell toys, and usually really condescending or just really terrible because they're still trying to appeal to 8 year olds too.

meanwhile anime has all the gore, deep plots that you're into cause you're into puberty and full of emotions and hormones, and usually more interesting art thats different than what you're used to.

and you can really just grow with it cause they make stuff geared toward whatever age you are. They even make stuff for the 40+ set. Every genre. Every theme. Something for everybody.

They made Cowboy Bebop for niggas that don't like anime

Shigurui

Watch that, there is an English dub now, but I prefer the Japanese one. Somehow the Japanese voices and language add to the effect.

Some of craziest gore/story telling you will ever see. This one literally sent chills down my spine. it's ruthless, bizarre, gory, and horrifyingly good.

It's a masterpiece made with blood.

because the shit they did technically in that movie is next to magic considering when it was made. I haven't seen anything that pushed it that hard with the technology that was available since.

Plus... the voices in the original dub just sound right... and I've been watching the same version of it for nearly 25 years, shit just ain't the same.

... Also, I HATE how they changed the pronunciation of the name "Kaneda". The original dub version just rolls off the tongue so much better. I don't care if the second dub is accurate or not, it sounds like shit.

One of the dopest in all of movies, tv, or literature. Comics, novels, alladat. There is absolutely nothing "cheesy" or "corny" about Berserk.

If you like Game of Thrones, fuck with Berserk. The anime and the manga. Right the fuck now.

i just can't get into them for some reason.
i feel like i should like them more than i do but shit like dragon ball z and sailor moon ruined my perception of them.

i have a movie on my computer right now that my brother recommended to me
that's just been sitting.
i think i will try to watch it later thanks to this post.
i'll report back.

Anime appeals to sci-fi and fantasy fans who want to see things on screen that just can't be done in live-action.

which there is plenty of.

Like Bin said, it's better high. Most of the shows are 20 minutes a piece so I can easily watch them alongside any live action American dramas/comedies. If JPN got they own Breaking Bad or The Wire with subtitles, I might fuck with it too.

Shit is entertaining, you don't have to take the next step and fetishize Asian culture and try to learn Japanese and go to conventions and alladat.

I treat anime just like American tv. Most of it is trash, keep your ears to the grapevine and folks will talk about the real dope stuff, and then see what appeals to you from there.

BigReg is right tho, American tv is so on point right now that's hard to keep up. I only watch one or two series at a time, if that.

In response to Reply # 113

I keep telling them that I'm cool on that shit.

I got out of the Dragon Ball Z type animes when I was in high school. I don't need to see a bunch of drawn out fights and over-developed (read: unnecessarily complex) plots.

If I'm going to watch something like that in Anime I'd prefer for it to be "High" Fantasy, and not just a mash up of whatever cool shit the creator likes. If you don't have a good story I'll get bored with whatever cool visuals you're throwing out there.

I appreciate anime that has a lot of noir elements in it or ones where character development is paramount. I can deal with a slow burn, what I can't deal with is nonsensical bullshit thrown in there for 13 year old.s

"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts..." -The Bard

Not because it stopped being good but I guess I just got over it by the time it resumed.

Too much of it uses similar stylings for my tastes. Yeah, I know they're not all exactly the same but still, I seriously gotta be in the mood to watch one of them joints because of that aspect.

you like, it actually helps with finding anime you're probably going to like.

Every time I'm browsing and the drawings make me double take, I usually end up liking the show/movie.

Conversely, I know to keep scrolling past the shows with cutesy girls in the thumbnail.

i agree it doesn't happen enough tho. i tend to be attracted to anime that looks different so i've been like a catalog for that.

but you'd enjoy Takeshi Koike's stuff probably. He did the runner short for Animatrix, he did the pilot for Afro Samurai, art directed for the newest, gritty Lupin III series, among other things

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MPe7E1YrY4


There's also Masaaki Yuasa who's style is more gestural and very distinctive.
He's worked with Studio 4°C on stuff lik Mind Game and Genius Party.
You should check out My Neighbours the Yamadas, Ping Pong, or The Tatami Galaxy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcSuAhbtIFg


Makoto Shinkai is another one. his bread and butter is sheer detail. I don't think his characters are much to write home about designwise, but the level of detail in his environments, and the lighting and water effects are impressive.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTTRweJ7jVs

there's more than these three obviously. its out there

I imagine watching these you've picked up some of the language unless you just mute it and read the closed captions (which would be really weird)..or listen to corny english voice overs

In response to Reply # 128


  

          

Asian cinema (well foreign film period, really) on top of anime, so I'm often surprised by how much I've picked up.

I can't speak it but I often understand more than expected. Same for Hindi and Korean though.


But I love language. If I hit the lottery and had nothing but time, I'd just study languages and become a polyglot.

174. "Getting there"
In response to Reply # 128


  

          

I actively study though and go there typically once a year. It's cool going back and watching stuff I used to dig and understanding more of the Japanese this time around.

My goal is once I'm really good I'll read the original Akira manga. I'm saving that to read in Japanese.

or it was just really inspired, like Samurai Champloo.

It's pretty much like Hardware said.

I'd love it if you recommended some banging soundtracks though, so I can look 'em up.
I'm not ashamed to listen to them (or vg music, lol).

there's as many different types of anime as there are any other genre of film/tv. Well, except anime has more fantasy elements i suppose.

There's a lot of good stuff in it, and a lot of bullshit in it. People find the shit they like, then watch it.

and you can be a fan of anime without having an asian fetish.

thought of only for kids, to the point where adult cartoons like Family Guy. The Boondocks, and South Park are seen to some degree as being scandalous just for existing.

Grown-ass people are into anime because there are anime shows and films made for grown-ass people. As well as for kids.

In response to Reply # 216


  

          

back when they were made to run in theaters.

there were cartoons that were friendliER for kids (Casper and other Paramount/Famous Studios cartoons, for example) and could be stitched together for Saturday matinees, but sitting through a handful of Looney Tunes should reveal jokes that, while not dirty, are definitely grown people humor. Plenty of cartoons, however, are a little (or a lot) salacious (see also, Betty Boop pre 1934)

What turned the tide in the US was television, where old cartoons were chopped up and used in live kiddie-show packages, and new cartoons were produced under the strict eye of parent groups

or only like what they suggest.

I had a friend/roommate who would throw tantrums like a kid if it was a good movie he didnt recommend.

Opening credits... "awe man, this shit looks wack"

First scene.. "I already know where this is going"

2nd scene.. "man, this is wack, how long is this movie?"

You gotta think about time and place when you reccomend it. I aint saying its wack but when you look at the landscape, it was never really unique. The plot was basically any ronin movie. Kenshin was deeper.

It just happened to hit at the right time for adolecent/teenage boys in america who'd never seen anything like that.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

i like the more serious anime, the 3 episodes ive seen of aldonah zero were good, im looking for an english dub

one thing anime gets wrong are the over the top emotions like on attack on titan. all that yelling and screaming make it unwatchable for me

206. "can you make any reccomendations?"
In response to Reply # 204


  

          

im into the more serious anime

gore means nothing to me
im not against gore but i dont have to have it
and gore just to have gore is a turnoff

Akira was visually fantastic
good background story, but something about the execution i didnt like

i hate
absolutely HATE the random silly characters they seem to throw into serious anime
Full Alchemist Brotherhood
the Tachikomas on GitS

that shit is hella annoying on to me and unnecessary

i LOVE Miyazaki movies
Spirited Away is my favorite
so im not against humor it just has its place

ive only seen the first 3 episodes of Cowboy Bebop
it looks promising

In response to Reply # 206


          

i agree with you mostly

i disagree with the tachikomas. i find them the most interesting since they're the only real 'robots' in the show; ones without 'ghosts'. They constantly try to understand the line between living thing and object, which is something the human characters seem to deal with eternally.

it think its an interesting way to treat the constant pontificating found in the movies by using it for specific characters who, by all intents, shouldn't even be able to. They're voices get kind of annoying but i kind of accept that representing their childlike curiosity considering the designs are so fun looking. It did feel like some heart was missing when they were gone in season 2

i agree with you though....kinda

i agree that it goes with their 'young' inquisitive programming

however i still feel like anime overcompensates too much with too many things
and thats a distraction for me

you could still pull a voice off like that with the robots without it sounding like a 5 year old little girl

so everytime a post comes up its 200 posts of DBZ, Ninja Scroll, Bebop, Miyazaki, and whatever happened to be popular in the past 6 months.

no shade tho. nghs aint got that kind of time. lol

i just know when you get old and jaded, you don't really like the shit you did when you were 16. I'd have recommended Ranma 1/2 back in '01, i loved it, but if it came out now, i'd 100% not be watching it. These posts tend to feel like recommending cough drops for athlete's foot.

i mean, are we really out here in 2015 telling people to watch Inuyasha?

i agree
looking for anime on Hulu or Netflix is a pain because its all grouped together and not split up into genres of Anime

someone makes an Anime thread and the replies do the exact thing we complain about Hulu and Netflix doing

once again
thanks for breaking it down

Are you really recommending that to a grown person who isn't still in high school? Hell I love Naruto but I don't tell people to start watching it now.

Nothing puts the elements together like Bebop which is why its so revered.

Shinicho Watanabe modeled Spike after Lupin III tho if you couldnt tell by the clothes and all the jazz in the show

In response to Reply # 239


  

          

All of these shows have elements of Cowboy Bebop that I have found similiar. Its not the same show but if you like Cowboy Bebop I think you will enjoy those shows. They all mix martial arts, gun play, bounty hunters, westerns, jazz (kinda), pirates, capers, and strong scripts. Some are more funny than the others (Black Lagoon, Outlaw Star, Trigun)
