Its not like the date matters since its just cinema broadcasts. At best some sales numbers shitposting threads, but thats it - maybe some spoilers soon about how they changed the story.

Until its on BD it all doesnt matter. We dont need confirmation to know its good.

Been listening to the ost, if it can be called that. They're just a bunch of noises. It does feel like it was made by the same guy who made Ping Pong ost but I don't see how this got greenlit to be sold as a soundtrack, they're basically just complimentary ambient sound effects in rhythm, not actual songs. What was Lantis thinking?

Oliver Roberts
Oliver Roberts

Jordan Sanchez

I understand what they were going for but they're too much of boring piano ambient tracks.

It's very forgettable and repetitive.

I was hoping for something more like this

It might sound good next to the movie's visuals but I don't think the standalone soundtrack is worth it, Japan seems to agree as well.

Novelization won't chart as well
Movie will be forgotten in a week. Predicted gross not even half a billion.

Should've delayed it to be honest.

Actually, this scene makes more sense continuity wise. Yuzuru takes a photo of Ishida jumping off the bridge and her mother uses it as evidence that he's a trouble maker and should stay away from Shouko, but she was present in the manga and should have known about it anyway. I'm sure once they're out of the river she'll arrive with a "Sho-chan" making Ishida do a double take. Either way, some things will be changed, and likely for the better and to tighten the pacing, let's just accept that it won't be a 1:1 adaption and enjoy the film when the time comes, okay?

Write an email to your local indie theater, it couldn't hurt.

Julian Gutierrez

Angel Flores

So what's the guy's problem? Looked like he had one but I couldn't decipher it from context.

Wyatt Perez
Wyatt Perez

You know I'm right. Koe no Katachi looks like any other KyoAni TV anime. The OST is out already and it's nothing but muffled noise garbage, we already know the plot of both movies since KnK is just an adaptation, and animation-wise, Kimi no na Wa completely shits on anything KyoAni has made, period.

Aaron Wood
Aaron Wood

I dunno, I guess I just tend to get more excited over artistic affairs as opposed to more commercially oriented stuff. I hope both do well, lord knows we need more and better feature length animated films, but I just honestly can't get hype for Shinkai.

Jordan Lopez
Jordan Lopez

Shinkai is shit
At least Yamada has a good track record

Julian Davis
Julian Davis

This is what I first thought as soon as I found out the adaptation was gonna be done by Kyoani. The manga really affected me in a lot of dep ways and I'm sure the movie will in some form just by association.

Jordan Wood
Jordan Wood

I liked his shirt films about cats and 5 cm/s, but yeah overall I definitely agree. Yamada is the best director working right now.

William Hall
William Hall

First of all, that's not realistic. Second of all, realistic doesn't mean inherently good. "Good composition" is just your opinion and you don't even need to really believe it to put it in that image. Besides, I like the composition of the shots on the right much more. "Amateurish" is just another buzzword you pulled out of your ass to have something bad to say. About the filters, they aren't inherently bad either. You know what Shaftfags always, "it's a stylistic choice", to me it gives it a lot of personality and looks good.

So yeah, you're still yet to say anything about the movie that isn't speculation or opinions. Oh wait, you can't, because the fucking movie isn't even out yet, idiot. Also because you're an idiot.

Lincoln Allen
Lincoln Allen

And besides, Koe no Katachi's backgrounds look WAY more realistic, precisely because of the filters.

Mason Hughes
Mason Hughes

Instagram filters make things look realistic

Woah, I didn't know that, why has no one made instagram glasses?

Joshua Peterson
Joshua Peterson

everything being crisp and shiny is realistic
Get your delusion checked, idiot. No camera can take a picture that looks like those shots on the left because reality doesn't look like that. Not the shininess, not the crispiness, and not the colors. If you take a picture of the sunset behind a wheat field with houses in the distance, it's probably gonna look close to the shot on the bottom right. Ask anyone in your house right now which one looks more like real life, test it yourself.

Dylan Turner
Dylan Turner

It's funny that I always heard this Kyoani using instagram filter meme yet I never see any side-by-side comparison with the real instagram filter.

Levi Turner
Levi Turner

They don't use Instagram filters. The AE add-ons they use are those of Prima Linea a Montpelier based French animation studio that does in house animation. It's clear on their behind the scenes videos. But kinda wierd to see them source that.

Robert Howard
Robert Howard

It's pointless trying to force this, because even Shinkai said he loves KnK

Owen Gray
Owen Gray

Oh yes, your eyes make chromatic aberration and have a blurred vignette, so realistic.

Christopher Howard

Good thing I talked specifically about cameras, right? And yes, eyes do make blurred vignettes.

Now that the anime is coming out I can finally fucking talk to people about it. Everyone I know refused to read the manga.

Brandon Davis
Brandon Davis

Don't lie on the Internet brother. You asked me and I told you that the right ones looked more realistic than the ones on the left. Also, as your sister I'm ashamed of having a little brother with such a severe case of shit taste, our Mom should've aborted you.

Levi Roberts
Levi Roberts

There's way too much information going around behind Shouko's back for that to work, Ishida being the main focus is the only way the viewer would be able to actually get the full story of what's going on.

Isaac Sullivan

Kayden Watson
Kayden Watson

Nah. The real elitist faggot is Hosoda. A french magazine had an interview with him back when Bakemono no Ko was in cinemas here and he pretty much badmouthed everything Japenese.

Samuel White
Samuel White

I thought the same too, but at the end of the day, there are a lot of educators that just treat it as a job and don't care much for the children. Although I will say the female teacher did try, you can't fault her for not knowing sign language beforehand.

Yamada is also a talentless hack. The only difference is that Shinkai made one of the most successful movies in Japan.

Luke Brown
Luke Brown

Why are KyoAni fans so delusional? I've read the manga, watched all PVs and videos, it looks mediocre at best. KyoAni movies also tend to look like TV anime, there's not really a jump in quality from their usual work, they don't seem to put any extra effort.

Michael Gray
Michael Gray

Shoko is so moe

Zachary Peterson
Zachary Peterson

KyoAni movies also tend to look like TV anime
I don't get people that say that, that only means KyoAni has movie quality for their TV shows, which is exactly what's it is (a GOOD thing). Their production values are so high they shows rarely look bad.

Carter Cook
Carter Cook

Don't delude yourself. Yes KyoAni TV anime quality is above average. But I've never seen them put up actual movie quality stuff, I'm talking in the same tier as steamboy, memories, gits, sword of stranger, Akira, cowboy bebop, nerawareta gakuen, any Madhouse, ig, chizu, or Ghibli film, or

Josiah Cook
Josiah Cook

She's got actual talent and vision and uses it to further her art rather than just stagnating. Most of my favourite directors in anime have regressed or plateaued in one way or another, she's the only one I get a sense of progression from. I'm serious when I say she's the future of anime, heck even a frontrunner in modern Japanese filmmaking in general. I hope to God she stays with film.

Aaron Jones
Aaron Jones

Yamada is the best director working right now.
She is not even best KyoAni director.

Best KyoAni is working on their magnum opus VEG atm.

Aiden Baker
Aiden Baker

I'm willing to bet she is younger and has a shorter career than your other favorite anime directors. It's easy to progress when you're still hasn't reached your top potential. But she's great nevertheless.

Ishidate meme
Even Ishihara is better than him. The meme directoral choices in KnK remove him from contention for good anime directors. Also Yamada is the only award winning KyoAni with Keion and Tamako.

Kevin Rogers
Kevin Rogers

Nope, Ishidate has potential but hasn't harnessed it to the fullest yet. VEG might change this though.

Juan Clark
Juan Clark

I personally slightly dislike KnK artstyle, meaning color scheme and backgrounds since it looks too "Shinkaish". Some scenes in the movies you could switch and not notice difference - unlikes say Hibike, KnK looks too much like Shinkai`s works (characters aside).

In visual contest, Shinkai will win against KyoAni easily since he is imaginative and really talented about perfecting the static imagery and effects.

Meanwhile, KyoAni wins hands down in details and nuances - character animation, emotion, small body language nuances, stuff like wind blowing mail characters hair from behind, poses, expressions, small stuff that makes all their shows real.

Liam Baker
Liam Baker

tfw nobody likes Ishihara these days

Isaac Anderson
Isaac Anderson

she's the only one I get a sense of progression from

Were the other directors older? Yamada is pretty young, her track record and the fact that she's still young give me great hope for her career.

I wanted to comment on how well the music was done in this scene, some people have complained about the OST being so ambient, but you can see here how it works so well.

Easton Taylor

Who is Ishidate's mentor anyway? All I know is Yamada learned under Ishihara.

Josiah Perez

She's much younger and yeah that's definitely allowing her to do more. Seriously though, if below her top potential is trumping every film by a senior director (sans Ghibli) these days, then what does that day about them? Hara just released his best work to date, but it's still not what I'd call great. Katabuchi debuted with a fantastic original fantasy movie, but turned to discount Ghiblies. Hosoda's gone full popcorn flick. Shinkai is very samey (granted I've not seen the new one which I hear is great). Miyazaki and Takahata are literally dead. Who else is there? My faith in anime is in her and Science Saru.

I love Ishihara. I always preferred him to Takemoto and recently Ishidate. He knows how to manufacture fun. Compare any comedic scene of any Kyoani work with any comedic scene directed by Ishihara and he'll win hands down.
Him directing the best baseball episodes of all anime twice also makes him special. Also PW>>>>>>ABP.

Kigami is greater than Munto though. His experience trumps everyone else working in KyoAni. He's from the Akira crew.

Colton Nelson

At least he outdid himself for his last work

Camden Campbell

I disagree, but rather than that I'm just excited that they've got three films on the works, one by big poppa Yuasa himself.

I'm still out as to whether I think that or Only Yesterday is his best film.

Aaron Morgan

Munto was KyoAni's tech demo.
It did its job well.

Angel Richardson

I'd think that their senior animator that helped shape the studio would have a creative leeway and he liked to wrap up Munto. He got his way.

Joshua Baker

Opinions and all that but those are the worst movies from both.

Thomas Mitchell

I didn't like the story but technically(editing, pacing, composition, cuts) the movie is the best thing to come up this decade trumping both Takahata and Miyazaki's works.

Joshua Ramirez

I wonder how many years does Kigami have left before he's too old for the strenuous life in the anime industry. KyoAni had better groom more ace animators to pick up the slack.

I still like Ishihara, I feel like he gets too much flak considering he helped put them on the map with the Key adaptations and Haruhi. Obviously nowadays he's been surpassed by Yamada, and Kyoani recognizes this too since she's the one that gets the prestige projects like KnK while he's working on Phantom World. But I do like that he's sort of gracefully stepped aside and let Yamada take the spotlight. And honestly, you could do worse if Ishihara is your 3rd or 4th best director.

Jayden Allen
Jayden Allen

It is an adaptation. People know the story, read the manga, manga recieved awards and is regocnized. From PVs and all reviews we know that KyoAni delivered and it looks good.

So the only thing that could change the movie being 10/10 is if KyoAni decide to go original story path in some way, which apparently it doesnt.

James Young
James Young

If something it is underrated. The movie I mean. It's not getting all the credit it deserves because they screwed the timing for the screening, putting it along with a flick which only goal was attracting the masses with a cheesy and overused plot.

Tyler Jenkins
Tyler Jenkins

Its rightfully rated. Its a good and recognized manga, and whats more - finally a chance for Yamada to adapt proper well written story.

Overrated would be if people didnt know what to expect. In this case its the opposite, since people know exactly what they`ll get and are excited for it.

Joseph Carter

Well, it's not a bad manga, but I did not think it is anything but "ok". The theme is interesting, but ends overlapped by melodrama. There is no depth. In the end, what I see is just a story that tries to make the reader cry (let's be honest, a pure and moe girl, deaf, which is hated by everyone is a very cheap move).

Adam Miller
Adam Miller

With Yamada not keeping him in bounds, does it mean we will see more lewd and fanservice in new Euphonium?

If they truly were next level KnK would open on more than 300 screens instead of the 100 it's opening on currently. The marketing blitz is nowhere near that of any high budget non Otaku movie too. Compare this to Bakemono no Ko or Kimi no wa and you'll see how much lacking this is.

You have to consider though that despite the overall uplifting message, KnK still broaches uncomfortable topics of bullying and suicide and it's not the type of film to get a ton of marketing and cross promotions. It's like expecting 12 Years a Slave to get the same level of marketing as Avengers.

Alexander Kelly
Alexander Kelly

It makes sense to complain about chromatic aberration since in real life, it's caused by a failure in the lenses. I see no logic reason to emulate it. depth of field for example has a reason, it helps the viewer focus on the thing he's supposed to focus, but what's the use for chromatic aberration?

Luke Collins
Luke Collins

Indie kino.

Nicholas Lewis
Nicholas Lewis

The lens is as much a part of the scene as what's actually depicted; the way it's emulated is as much an artistic choice as the colours or textures of the objects in the scene.

Samuel Wright
Samuel Wright

And what's that artistic reasoning behind chromatic aberration? Normally, photographers and cinematographers try to avoid it as much as possible. You as a chromatic aberration apologist should know why they used it.

Nicholas Clark
Nicholas Clark

Not true in the slightest, imperfections to a certain degree are often striven for. Read through some of the Eupho interviews, chromatic aberration aside they were meticulous about things like getting the right amount of dust on the lens. There could be any number of reasons for doing something like this, but an obvious one is to add a feeling of authenticity or realism.

Dominic Ramirez
Dominic Ramirez

to add a feeling of authenticity or realism.
Do your eyes create chromatic aberration?

Gabriel Martin
Gabriel Martin

Chromatic abberation lends a certain look to the scene, in anyone's opinion it could give it a certain feel artistically or make the frame look like a mess, the only problem is that you are passing off your own opinion as some sort of matter-of-fact "it is always pointless and looks wrong."

Why are lens flares considered normal in film nowadays? They're a flaw as far as reproducing reality, but in film making they are said to add a certain authenticity to what is being filmed because they appear in home videos of things being filmed in reality. Again, you're using an extremely dumb autistic standard of "I see no artistic purpose personally, therefore it has none."

No, but a lens does and that's the look they are going for.

Brandon Johnson
Brandon Johnson

I don't know what you're getting at.

Justin Anderson

Instagram filers are art. You heard it here first folks.

Why do you always have a spelling mistake in your post?

Except it's not film. It's animation.

KyoAni missuses post effects quite a lot. Chromatic aberration, vignetting and blur is fine when using sparingly and with a purpose but they plaster them everywhere nowadays.

Slick observation, but you know what I mean.

This. KyoAni tries to emulate film so often that they forget they're doing animation. Very rarely do I see them use animation's unique properties.

This is how animation should be done.

Just stop replying, he even ignored my long post to continue the argument by replying to anything he could with the same terse responses. He's a troll.

At least this is an opinion I can respect, even if I disagree.

To say art should be done in any which way is pants on head retarded.

Hudson Evans

animation should be done one way
"no"

To use an art-form to emulate another is pants on hear retarded as well.

Do you seriously not watch any of their shows? Like, literally watch them, and not just a few either.

No, that's my point. It's animation not film. The superfluous techniques don't add much to the animation and only serve to make it unclear.

I hope you know that more than one person can have a disagreeing opinion. You don't have the amazing samefag detection skills you think you have.

Chromatic aberration is a quick and (read: lazy) easy way to add variation of hue and edges to the picture.

Hue and edge variation is a concept used in painting and you can see them in action in the logo of the film itself.

Like lens flares, these day they're used more as visual decoration and compositional element (and to cover up bad CG) than emulating real camera.

I mean yeah they could emulate film all they want and shy away from what makes 2D animation special and unique, but at that point why not make live action?

Shows like Hibike or Koe no Katachi could very well be live action and nothing would be lost. But what about shows like the Monogatari series, or Kill la Kill? it would be a nearly impossible task since SHAFT and Trigger actually use animation's unique essence in their favor to tell stories.

Owen Stewart

Being live action would be entirely different, I don't understand how anyone could think that art is translatable. One of the biggest issues with modern animation discourse.

The hard way of applying hue and edge variation is to do it like this.

The guy who animated this sequence is an accomplished painter.
Yamada studied painting too but I don't think she does it often anymore.

Charles Gomez

They don't shy away from 2D animation. Their shows are literally 2D animation.

Jack Morales

Probably the best animated scene in the past 10 years. KyoAni will never be able to achieve something like this.

This short video alone is better and more impressive than anything KyoAni has ever made. While Shinkai uses animation to tell stories. KyoAni just adds instagram filters.

Joseph Nguyen

What the hell are you talking about? Only their postprocessing emulates live cinema. Kyoani's actual 2D animation process is the exact same kind that you get from GONZO and DEEN.

Prior to Your Name, none of Shinkai's works can be said to have good animation. Kyoani's character animation on the other hand is an essential part of their works.
