So you're saying animators haven't gotten lazy drawing by a computer that can pretty much baby everything for them? It takes real skill to animate by hand.

There really is no point in arguing with ur simple minded view on artists and the anime industry. Come back after doing some real research before showing disrespect.

Animating in a computer cuts costs, it has nothing to do with being lazy. It's also more environmentally friendly since you save paper.
The best number is 73. Why? 73 is the 21st prime number. Its mirror, 37, is the 12th and its mirror, 21, is the product of multiplying 7 and 3... and in binary 73 is a palindrome, 1001001, which backwards is 1001001.
Films I'd like to see on Blu-Ray Disc:
Scarface (1932)
ABC Weekend Specials (19771995) [TV Movies]

Except I have a degree in Fine Arts and I find animating on the computer to be lazy. Yes, it looks great, but you lose the human element with it. It's a souless shell. When something is done by hand, the artist has put their blood, sweat, and tears into the piece.

They're still animating in the traditional frame-by-frame method though, aren't they? I was under the impression that the work is mostly done on Wacom Cintiq- style tablets. I saw a brief 'making of' clip from Ping Pong, and although they used Flash, it was done by hand.

Default Information on the Production of Anime

Read The Anime Economy, as well as watch both Shirobako (as mentioned by Naiera, seconded by me), and the Canipa Effect. This isn't just for Vlad, this is for everyone. I think everyone should know how our favourite things are made. Also, Sakuga Blog and Digibro. This post will be updated as new, and useful sources come to mind, to better improve the anime community's knowledge of production.

Two Studio Ghibli Dicumentaries are also good help: The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness (the making of The Wind Rises) and Isao Takahata and his Tale of the Princess Kaguya. Both have subtitled DVD releases (Kaguya is included The with the U.S. Blu-ray release of the film, and a standalone DVD in the U.K.), and are well worth watching

Just cause your lazy at something don't judge the rest of us for it or those that take pride in their work. Drawing by hand is indeed different but calling one lazy over the other is disrespectful.

You think the artists that made Your Name, In This Corner of the World, and A Silent Voice are lazy. Ur an idiot to think these movies were made by lazy people.

I am an artist and I draw background art on a Wacom surface by hand actually. Its hard work that takes time and skill to accomplish. You clearly know nothing about it or you wouldn't be calling artists like that lazy. So how bout shutting the f*** up about it.

Or how about everybody just do research on those things I went out of my way to post as resources to improve everyone's knowledge? Let's not try to argue, and I'm not taking any sides, but this has gone too far. Do your own research, and come to your own conclusions. I speak little Japanese, nor live in Japan, so I don't work in the industry, so please rely off of my trusted and creditable resources.

The sheer number of shows getting churned out every year shows that anime is more easily created than it used to be. I have little sympathy when people talk about the low wages for artists in Japan, or the difficulty in creating a new arc, or how we need to support overpriced nonsense. It is very clear to anyone from the outside looking in that the industry is healthy and is here to stay for a very long time. Things are just more competitive than ever before.

In fact the industry has become so bloated with similar shows, derivatives, and tired tropes and archtypes almost to the point where a lot of the material is soulless. Thankfully we can pick and choose what we watch. However, I'd also say that there is little chance that much material has the potential to become a cultural phenomenon. Mostly just feature films, because we have so many shows. Shows have split demographics. The market is segmented. The main thing is there is just so much media to consume now that a person can ignore most of it. A lot of great shows today just become lost in the shuffle whereas if they were released 15 years ago they would have become megahits. Things have really become watered down, and that's a recent phenomena of just the last several years.

I do agree with Nothing. Shows these days are repeating the same tropes over and over again that it's hard to find an original show anymore. I'm tired of school girl shows and I'm tired of the shows where some kid is the destined one and that everyone else must cater to that individual or the world is doomed.

It's one of the reasons I did fall in love with AoT (the manga) because it felt like something different. Yes, Eren had these abilities and Mikasa had super speed, but people still weren't catering to them. In addition, the series was about giant man-eating monsters that could possibly be science expirements gone wrong or survivors of a nuclear holocaust who put the fear of death in everybody so they had to adapt to survive. It's a nice contrast to every day life that you are put under massive pressure from every little thing you do and you either just die or you go against it to overcome it.

Attack on Titan season 2 finished up today with an announcement for season 3 in 2018. Based on the teaser the next season will be two courses again which is good cause the next arc sucks. Season 2 was awesome so I don't mind the wait.
