High Guardian SpiceTumblr: The CalArt Anime

Discussion in 'Multimedia' started by The_Doctor, Aug 22, 2018.

  1. CR is owned by AT&T. What do you think.

  2. Important distinction being were they went legit and now pay with Kadokawa locked down on an exclusive global streaming contract which acts as a significant draw.

    The problem is they're not like STEAM where there's rather strict corporate neutrality the various corporate owners have underfunded this platform for a while, choosing to scalp the profits while they can rather than improve the service to bring in more people as paying customers. They've fucked about with translations, censoring their shows (apparently they pay only for the TV-broadcast version and then cut scenes if they're not to their tastes) never mind the previous near-revolt they had over their shoddy handling of Danmachi Memoria Freeze.

    Crunchyroll easily clears $40m all told as since sale to AT&T they have been ruthless with cutting costs where they can. Their IT services are now handled by a company in Moldova.

    There's some truth to the money and stuff supporting anime... kind of. The majority of the profits handed to anime creators actually go to the production committees pockets instead. This helps keep the lights on for the studios said committees commission, of course.

    If you really really wanted to directly support the actual studios then you'd be better off donating a couple of bucks to Studio Trigger's Patreon.

  3. I'm pretty sure no Japanese anime companies are doing CalArts beanface garbage.

    They had a reputation as pretty shit to start out with, so I suppose they pulled this SJW crap figuring the people already willing to settle for their shitty service (and actually pay for it instead of just pirating like a normal person) would also eat this turd sandwich.

  5. This is really why I reckon an investor could seriously clean up if they just challenged them. There's obviously a big and regular pile of money sat there as weebs want to support the industry however they can and it is a convenient site.

    We already know the studios/committees are relatively ambivalent to the global market and sell the shows off with little care about what happens outside of Asia. They're only really paying attention when Netflix or Amazon come calling because they're the guys who take the risks and let the studios experiment.

    You'd just have to trade off a bit of longer wait time to build the business up to the same level as CR's is now. Heck, offer to make some of the better translation groups to go legit, or store some of the cash up to make a very attractive offer for originals then.

  6. The eternal poison of all CURRENT YEAR media, every single franchise is a Joss Whedon fanfic re-skinned.

    Shat out with all the sincerity of a sulking thirteen year old saying, "It doesn't matter that I failed the tryouts, the joke's on them because I wasn't trying anyway."

  7. The Twitter thread checks out, definitely from Yaginuma. Here's the image for those who don't want to click the link.

    Think someone in this thread already pointed out much of what Yaginuma says, now that I think about it. But pretty hilarious nonetheless the stuff coming out about CR in lieu of this.

  9. My problem with this show is who is this for?
    Whos the target audience they're trying to get?
    And from what I'm hearing, the Japanese audience ain't going to watch this shit.

  10. Obviously, the show's for them and maybe their closest followers. The average joe already has the rest of CR's library to watch (even the japanese co-productions) and the Japanese themselves don't really give a shit about CR as it stands.

    In other words, it's a very small-minded crowd.

  11. If that's the case then this show is going to be a fucking disaster
    I don't even think it's going to make it past the pilot episode
    If it does, that's a miracle in of itself

  12. I thought the thread being bumped to the front meant there were some news about the fate of the show. I need to stop getting my hopes up. *sigh*

    Still leaves a sour taste in my mouth, but I was otherwise forgetting about its existence and feel this is fated to fade into obscurity eventually. I still think Raye deserves better, but unless he's already lost the rights to it, he could use more time to flesh out his creations and move away from the obvious Madoka roots to avoid further scrutiny about it.

  13. Everything is pretty shit about this but what gets me the most is the “this character is [established character from another property] but [x]!”. When it comes to characterization and character development a phrase like that is peak lazy, it just shows that the creator has zero confidence in themselves to create something thats their own and leans on someone else’s fine tuning of their own character.

    But hey that was already obvious.

  14. Kinda sounds like SU (OR worse, OK K.O.), but much worse off... Too many popular anime references, not enough fucking originality or actual ideas to make this SJWBS actually shine in a real way. They're making anime look bad with this... And at the same time, they're making Western fare (cartoons) look even fucking worse. Either way, it's all unacceptable. Please let this burn out and be quickly forgotten is all I can ask of this SJWBS.

  17. Dead silent since the initial coverage:

    I suspect it might get quietly cancelled thanks to all the fallout.

  18. Did they ever give a date for the initial release? I do find it odd they haven't stated anything so that gives me two options:

    1) The show is still early in production and they just showed some concept art originally. So it's possible they just showed a teaser as a way to generate hype. There are cases of shows have one off teasers only to suddenly spam announcements the year it's supposed to be released.

    2) It's possible that CR saw the backlash to it and decided they best way to save the show's rep was to let things die down and then advertise again sparsely. It's possible they wanted to change their marketing strategy to make the show more approachable.

    3) (unlikely, but a possibility) The show got canned or is delayed into the abyss. Even the new She-ra reboot got some attention after it's initial teaser and pre-production pictures. Seeing that we barely have any news isn't atypical, but it's still something to take notice about.
