Is this guy going to be the next big director? He's only directed two projects and they were both extremely good.

Mob Psycho has a whole team of talented veterans, and Death Parade was not particularly good.

Thomas Fisher

Death Parade was mediocre, while MP was good but with a great staff besides him. I wouldn't necessarily expect anything from him, let alone being "the next big director," whatever that really means.

Caleb Perry

In what fucking world was Death Parade "extremely good"?

Nolan Brooks

Death parade was objectively one of the best of 2015, if not the best.

Jack Cooper

I mean, he's above average and I have my eye on him but I doubt he'll be the next big director.

Death Parade had consistently great vignettes and solid character animation, how was it not good?

John Jackson

It was kind of hit or miss, but I appreciate its ambition.

He needs a style that easily stands out if he wants to be famous. The more easily distinguishable his style is, the more famous he'll get. It doesn't even matter if it's good or not.

The writing was meh, and it tried to be deep and touching on top of being meh.

Death Parade was the meme of its season, you're not allowed to like it.

Maybe if you only watched 5 anime last year. Death Parade was mediocrity saved by a decent ending.

Death Billiards was miles better than Parade. That's probably why I was disappointed by it.

Caleb Peterson

Pretty much this unfortunately. Directors establish themselves in this business not by having interesting ideas and means of conveying them but by establishing a set of gimmicks and then making sure to impose them upon every project they come into contact with

Jayden Sanchez

It was didactic shit. First episode was promising enough, but the second episode completely ruined anything good the series had done, which in retrospect was obviously not intentional. Instead of neutrally presenting you with two sides and allowing the audience to draw their own conclusions more like a Kino of Mushishi, the story preaches to you about which side is wrong or right and harped on about "mug primal fear" and all kinds of other pretentious garbage.

Jack Myers

I don't think he's done anything above "okay" - I like the formal wankery in Mob Psycho but I wouldn't say that makes it extremely good.

That's retarded.

Logan Cooper

Death Parade was fine until the stupid final arc. The episode that tried to make serious drama with the comedic relief girl and the pop idol was fucking retarded garbage. I was cringing so hard.

How the fuck does Death Parade's writing have anything to do with the director? Are you all retarded?

For the record I thought the had okay direction but nothing exceptional. Mob's direction was singificantly better but it was still nothing fame-making.

Christian Cox

He wrote it and directed it.

How the fuck does Death Parade's writing have anything to do with the director?

Yuzuru Tachikawa
Death Parade (TV) : Director, Screenplay, Storyboard (eps 1, 4-5, 12), Episode Director (ep 12), Original creator

So the writing does have to do with him.

I liked Death Parade a lot and when it ended I was very much looking forward to what he would direct next. Needless to say, Mob 100 didn't disappoint.

Brody Morales

Fair enough, but it still doesn't make sense that this guy's claiming he could be the next big director and everyone in the thread is criticizing his writing. The two are different jobs.

Logan Brooks

Because he was also the writer, you faggot. Not like Death Parade's direction was anything notable, anyway.

Quite a few of those were pretty good, at the very least better than Death Parade. What would you say was good from 2015?

Pleiades was middle-of-the-road magical girl show. Not good.

Yeah, I also liked a few of those.
But Death Parade is still my pick for 2015.

Tried to preach us to death? Sure. Just because one show is pretentious and takes itself way too seriously, doesn't inherently make it better than a show that doesn't.

Literally the best part of Death Parade were the Buddhist shitposters saying the void is the good end, you take away that it's an average show with nice visuals.

Colton Perez

I don't give a shit how hard you try.
Good, because Death Parade not only tried by succeeded.

How else do you explain Tachikawa landing the director job for Mob 100? Some people at Bones must think he did a great job. I think I trust their opinion (and mine) over yours.

I thought we decided to never broach that topic again after the multiple straight bump limit threads of /pol/ crossboarders shitposting about it.

Landon Taylor

No, because the writer is fucking stupid and despite showing all evidence to the contrary, he just outright says "No she isn't because I said so".

Death Parade lost its luster very quickly and I wouldn't say it had particularly good direction, unlike Mob.

Only ConRevo was better than Death Parade.

Xavier Moore

Death Parade tried something that was a great concept on paper but it got tiring extremely quick. Once every episode was the same process with very little difference, there was no saving it. Plus the ending was mediocre which made the anime all that much more forgettable.
