I saw the bear and passed.
Skinning isn't that graphic. Especially since the guy had been dead for a while and had lost all that blood from getting half-eaten by a CG atrocity.https://youtu.be/X9f-WxXYgRo?t=368
Aside from that, I basically agree. The awful CG and lack of ED animation don't bode well, but I really hope the staff can at least keep it together for twelve episodes and maybe even fix some stuff for the BDs, because everything else about it seems great.

Was the CG done that way on purpose?
I wonder why that video has so many dislikes.>>25299
Maybe?https://kamuycentral.wordpress.com/2018/01/03/nanba-hitoshi-takagi-noboru-interview-january-2018/>Since I want the bear to emanate a different presence than the humans, I undertake the challenge of visualising the bear as giving an unusual atmosphere using 3D. It’s because when the animation is hand-drawn, we can feel the emotions of the artist in the show; it’s also difficult to draw the fur sufficiently like in the original work. However, if we purely only use 3D to make the bear, there will appear parts that do not blend with the surroundings, so we’re still trying to figure out how to fit it all.
I don't think they managed to figure it out after all :(
A glance at the comments gave me eye cancer, and also indicated that it's a mixture of a few vegans, some self-proclaimed deer-skinning experts nitpicking his technique, but mostly barely-literate retards who didn't understand the humorous anecdotes he added and didn't like that he was 'talking too much'.
Anyway, if that explanation about the bear isn't just a bullshit excuse, then it seems incredibly misguided. Like, okay, hand-drawing the bear wouldn't feel quite right, so instead you want to just make it look like shit? Yeah, you succeeded in giving it a different presence alright, it looks like it should be in Berserk.

Maybe they should have animated the bear with Flash or something like that. It still would have looked "different" from the rest of the show, but in a more subtle way and less like it escaped from a PS2 game.
i don't know, i think flash animation would have actually ended up looking worse since it has a similar degree of uncanny to it but without any of the depth of shadowing or material a 3d model could give, especially for something like a furry bear.
They could have hand-drawn the outline but then used a Shaft-style unmoving bear fur texture to fill it in. At least I could have bought that as a purposeful attempt to be artsy instead of just a lame way to cut corners.
I love the manga, I have been reading it nearly since the first chapter came out, and I'm pissed at all this shitty, lazy CGI animation. Golden Kamuy deserves better. Just wanted to get that off my chest.
I like the CG fire. It's bizarrely realistic and doesn't fit the rest of the animation at all, but I like it anyway.
the animation is so bad

But the faces are golden.
I think it's fine.
So why did Sugimoto leave Asirpa? To not get her wrapped up more?
Why does Asirpa think miso is poop?>>25723
Honestly, the animation is adequate at best. It's too bad, because I love everything else about the show and I think it deserved better.>why did Sugimoto leave Asirpa? To not get her wrapped up more?
Yes, I think so. He didn't want to continue to risk her life when she has a loving family to go back to.
Someone had the guts to tell me this manga "is a lot like Berserk^___________________________^ you should buy it" as I had it in my hands. Needless to say they worked there. I didn't buy it. I dont know how he knew i liked berserk. He might have saw me look through berserk before. What a weird comparison. I picked it up because it was the sino Japanese war and it has the ainu people in it. Almost polar opposite of berserk.
>>25732>Someone had the guts >the guts
Ha-ha you should feel bad
Maybe they just know Berserk is popular and were trying to make a sale.
Have you read the manga? How does the anime compare, janky animation aside?
How did they pronounce that?
It wasnt intentional >>25737
I would call berserk popular….
I think it was simply tending for the last two years since the (((anime))) ended in 2017. The American fan base grew enourmesly 'll just because theybwere exposed to the anime and picked up the manga.
I watched the 1996 anime adaptation, which only covers the Golden Age. For some reason there are several important chapters and narratives left out. Probably due to the budget and fans asking for certain peices to be animated. I'm pretty sure that anime was just another typical anime marketing strategy to boost manga sales. It did well with what it had for the budget and graphic content, but the still action shots that simply repeat in various motions hasn't aged well. Any other adaptation needs to find a way to fix this and go the opposite route the latest (((anime))) went.
My opion on the 2016 animation was that it should have never happened. The 3D digital animation was the worst possible route they could have taken berserk. Almost all the fans would have rather waited another 2 or 3 years for feature length film of Berserk that we saw since 2010, but all the director and studio saw was money signs ¥¥¥¥ and picked it up. It's Mira and the magazine publishing his works fault. They picked an animation studio that had no experience in action gerene, plus the director has a terrible history of work on his resume. There was so much internal fitting within the studio working on the berserk project. Bad animation, bad directing, bad writting. There was one single animation of when guys puts on the legendary berserker armor and the animation was amazing, but it was like 10 seconds. Everyone was up in arms asking shouting why They didn't just animate the entire series like that segment.
Japan can't into 3D digital art.
The creators doing it think they're pushing Japan into a new age of animation and are essentially closet Disney fans. It's pretending to be a wanna be.
Just read the manga.
I'm pretty hesitant to have guts and the entire crew using magic. It's disappointing. There's no way around seeing the similarities between berserk and the book of revelations though. Mirua is on to something with Catholicism in his work, but I'm just waiting for it to pan out. It might be a naratuve similar to his own life growth in aportual beliefs which is possibly why Guys is the most human character in anime history.

Are you new here? Cut that out please.

I guess Asirpa really loves Sugimoto, because she's eating his poop.
If you guys really like this anime and are interested in how Imperial Meiji run Japan ended up colonizing it fonallybafter centuries of the Ainu essentially dominating the land to the point of Japanese samurai generals having to posing them and stiol habing almost no control over the lanfs even after that than you can watch the historical narative of the first imperial settlement that was suppose to stage the full Japanese large population influx colonizing Hokikdo. I won't give spoilers, but without the main character who is from what I've gathered a real historical person did indeed have the only real abilities to launch and maintain such a project in the meiji era until 100 years later…
They used prisoners to build Hokikdo.
There are sex scenes, so those who have the inclination of being tempted to sin by the flesh do not watch.
Fire Flies of the North
This anime is making me interested in the real history it's based on, so thanks for the movie recommendation. I'll check it out.
Its a good movie, but don't go into it thinking it's amazing. I enjoyed the movie and the director is considered one of the last masters of Japanese cinema. This movie is one of his lasts yet never received much recognition. There always political social narratives in the mix of these types of movies. I hope you can get something out of it.
There a few movies that have recently (in the last 15 years) that have been on Hokikdo because the internet has made the Ainu some of the most popular searched subjects in the world, thus putting pressure on the Japanese government to treat them better and become a possible money maker for Japan's mass media, like in music and movies.
Another popular one online seems to be "Ungorgiven" (2013) and "Year one in the North" (2005). These are possibly superior movies in terms of budget and advertising to the general public.
Poppoya (1999) is out there.
The oldest movie on Hokido I know of is Abashiri Prison from 1965 where The block buster star Ken Takakura essentially his debut launching his career where they made 10 more sequels for he movie. It's a prison break movie. Its almost an essential to any Japanese film buff given its impact on Japanese cinema both short and long term.
There's plenty of more movies on Hokikdo floating around doing a simple internet search, but these are the most notable. The Ainu are still a people's seen as second class citizens in Japan despite most people thinking they're deserving of respect from the younger generation in Japan. The problem is no.one wants to given them ancestral lands or allow them to participate in their traditional recorations or ceremoneys, like stuff as simple as hunting elk with bows or fishing. The elders and youth still want to do these things while maintaining much of modern lifestyle, but Japan won't allow it.
That's why its a bit hard to have these movies produced. They go almost 10 years without a movie on Hokido being produced.
I've got serveral places picked out to visit in Hokikdo if I can visit one day. I even looked into finding a university in Hokkido to see of they would or have ever done am archeological search on specific portion of a a semi famous lake island. I never got around to it. One project at a time, else.nothing will get done.

Is it just me or is there a trend of 'surprise announcing' second seasons lately? I feel like it wasn't that popular before.
When they do this does it mean they've already started production? Or is it like Konosuba where they greenlight a second season as the first season is airing? I mean stuff like Overlord was obviously pre-planned, but this?
Based on what (little) I know of anime production, it should take more than three months to make an episode, so in cases like this they've definitely already started production by the time it's announced. And specifically for this series, the last episode (which was probably being written before the first one even aired) would have been such a terrible end to the adaptation on its own, I have to think it was all planned like this from the beginning.
I don't see why they don't just announce a split cour, though. Is it like an emergency out so they can cancel the show if it ends up being shit?
If it bombs, they just quietly cancel the second half.
I hope the OVA gets subbed before season two starts.
I'm glad this series is back. Spring feels like a long time ago already.
I am; I guess there isn't much to discuss that wasn't talked about last season.
