Anime is short for animation so technically it can be part of cartoons. It's basically Japanese cartoons. The term "Anime" has been associated to Japanese animation and is stuck that way. Why is Netflix marketing their animation as "anime" since they know that must people associate it with Japanese animation.
Im thinking specifically of Avatar the Last Airbender. Amazing show. Honestly i dont think you could improve upon it.
I get that there is a desire to cash in on thirsty fans like me, but i would lap up more animation happily. I would watch a spin off series about a lone water tribe person living in the earth kingdom, or about a group of fire nation separatists who are trying to make thier way in the world. Korra was disappointing but i would still prefer it over a reboot of what was already perfect.
I think most fans feel like this, but live action reboots are so common right now and I just dont understand why.
This new adaptation in 3d and 2d mix up is so awful And the frame rat of 12 is just painful I can't put it into words how many beautiful mangas are destroyed for example ajin, dorohedoro I couldn't bare to watch anything further Please Netflix stop doing this
Regardless of my negative feelings about season 3, I admit that in my opinion, Castlevania single-handedly saved western animation from the "lolsorandom" Calarts and strictly comedy based nightmare it's in right now. Castlevania challenged the industry with quality animation, good character design and art direction and a mostly serious story and because of it, we're getting more and more quality western animated shows that follow the formula and for that, I'm grateful. The Avatar series by Nickolodeon did it first, though, but it wasn't nearly as influential to the industry.
Thanks to Castlevania, we have a LOT of animated shows that follow suit like Seis Manos, Blood of Zeus and the upcoming Ark, Assassin's Creed, Witcher, Devil May Cry, Kong and Tomb Raider series coming up. Not all of them are gonna be good, but at least it proved that western animation isn't relegated to kids shows and comedy.
I really hope season 4 is good and if it turns out to be terrible, I hope season 5 stil... keep reading on reddit ➡
Just my little speculation but a few years ago I remember that Valve branded up with a Nendoroid company a few years ago and started to release a few heroes. Some of the heroes included Dragon Knight and Mirana. Is it a coincidence or do you guys think it was planned out by them but just a hidden gem?
With how Castlevania season 3 ended up, is anyone else afraid that Netflix's Devil May Cry adaptation might become DmC 2.0 in tone and dialogue?
Netflix is currently hosting a virtual speaking event for writers. Some of the events include:
HERE is the link. I saw this on twitter and thought it might be helpful!
I just thought about this while watching one of the memory scenes. The art style of this game is so beautiful, it would, in my opinion, lend itself wonderfully to an animated show. What do you guys think?
The animation was originally released in 2018 but just became available on Netflix January 1st. Let me be the first to admit I'm taking this waaaay too seriously. My daughter watched it with me and she loved it - she thought it was "genius" and "creative." But since I'm a fan of the original show and clearly had unrealistic expectations, I was very disappointed. For those who haven't seen it yet, there's a good plot description on the Fandom Wiki but here are the characters:
Ji Seok-jin = an impala = Pala
Gary = a monkey = Gai
Yoo Jae-seok = a grasshopper = Liu
Song Ji-hyo = some kind of psychic kitty thing?? = Miyo
Lee Kwang-soo = a giraffe = Lonky
Ha Ha = a penguin/Pororo = Popo
Kim Jong-kook = a tiger = Kuga
Out of fairness, let me start with what I liked:
I enjoyed many direct references to the show including Pala's extra life,
They have such a unique blend of animated shows for all ages with so much variety and different genres.
They also excell at adult animation with stuff like castlevania, Seis Manos, Big Mouth (not for me but I know a lot of people enjoy it), Bojack Horseman, Disenchantment, F is for family, Close Enough etc.
Their 'kids' shows are even better in my opinion with stuff like Carmen Sandieago, Wakfu, Kipo, She-Ra, Voltron, TrollHunters, Hilda, BNA, Glitch Techs etc.
Anyone else finds it odd that the job ad is now down when they said they're keeping it open until 2021? I was ready to submit today but the form and the ad are both gone. I contacted recruiters so I'm crossing fingers for a response.
Talked recently with an animation editor who just finished a Netflix series called Blood of Zeus. He said it was an epic undertaking.
I knew nothing about animation editing and learned a lot:
He also shared some battle-tested career advice, including:
So I just saw this yesterday, but netflix has hired 4 more anime studios. So how do we petition Will to get his team on on getting a Netflix anime done!
I think its one of the first cartoons I have watched where the animations and art direction are actually getting my attention cause of how stunning they are.
personal favorites are the work that was done on the flashbacks of season 2 when korra saw the origin story of the first avatar as well as how they show airbending in the fight sequences.
I am gonna miss watching new episodes of this show when I binge the last season tomorrow :-(
Frank E Abney III, a black animator who previously worked for Pixar created this short feature. It's on Netflix with very little promotion by them.
Description: After a heartbreaking loss, a grandfather struggling to reclaim his passion for painting finds the inspiration to create again.
EDIT: Someone gilded me. I'm not sure what it means, but I know it's good! Thank you.
I just thought I would bring to everyone's attention to a new Netflix original anime- style television show that has caught my eye. It is called "Blood Of Zeus" and it is beautifully animated and incredibly written.
The plot goes as follows: "Chronicles the illegitimate son of Zeus, a young man tasked with saving heaven and earth despite the interference of a vengeful goddess and her monstrous forces."
The show used to go by the name of "Gods&Heroes". If you like Greek Mythology, then this show was made for you. It has all the main key players of Greek Mythology in their respective elements. A lot of power and mysticism, mythical creatures and war.
Be wary tho it does contain some violence for those who are squeamish when it comes to that, because this anime has a lot of gruesome killings in it, so it is not for the faint of heart, but the plot is really good and the story sucks you in, so if you can get passed the dark parts, then you are in for a treat. It's in the... keep reading on reddit ➡
