Psychoanalyzing Two of Japan's Greatest Anime Creators
http://kotaku.com/psychoanalyzing-two-of-japans-greatest-anime-creators-1606463893

Thanks.  The article title sounded fascinating (particularly since one of those 'psychoanalyzed' was Miyazaki).  But sadly the article didn't go into much depth at all, much less the scope I would have liked.


NOTE:
Sometimes a broomstick is just a broomstick. ;)

it thought there was more before I posted.

I wasn't criticizing you (or certainly didn't intend to).  I thought it was misleading on the part of the webpage to have titled it as they did, not you.  You just shared it with us, for which I am grateful.  [Plus, the depth I would have liked would likely have bored the hell out of most. ;)]

Nah, in Ghibli's case, it would be shitty The Cat Returns sequels.

So if any of you out there gave Space Dandy a chance for a couple episodes and decided not to follow it, you should have kept going. Something happened around Episode 3 and everything came together and it's been awesome ever since. Kind of a Hitchhiker's Guide meets Cowboy Bebop meets Adult Swim's predilictionfor not giving a flying flip.

Huh . . . I watched the first episode and decided it was too "wacky" for me. I like a little more dryness and subtlety in my comedy.

Demarco is now asking fans on what Toonami should be moving forward. Here's the full quote from his Twtter:

 

"#toonami fans- what ya'll think about us maybe bringing this back?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lotTngXQwDQ

 

Here's the deal. Write me @ 1065 Williams Street, Atlanta, GA 30309 OR send us a message at Toonami.tumblr.com and let us know what you think. We weren't allowed to accept mail for a long while but we are now, so why not? Help us manipulate the manual. I guess the question now isn't "Is Toonami a failed experiment" but instead "What should Toonami be moving forward.""

 

Here are the links from his twitter so you'll know I'm not crazy:

Yeah?  Might have to give it a shot then.

RIP studio ghibli

This sucks. I've loved or at least liked everything I've seen from Ghibli. Their shutting down will leave a large hole to fill in the art of animation.

Wow, that's a bummer.  They brought such a different and idiosyncratic vibe that works as a nice counterpoint to the more journeyman type studios of today.

It is unfortunate.  But without Miyazaki, who understandably wanted to retire when there was still time and health enough to enjoy some retirement, there understandably wasn't enough recognized-name talent there to sustain it.  Not that there wasn't talent, just that those remaining weren't guaranteed box-office names.

There have been so few animation studios that resulted in the more genuine emotion in the viewer that Ghibli/Miyazaki produced.  (That, rather than the usually-'forced'-or-heavily-'induced' emotion from places like Disney, who appear to use an 'emotion-induction' template for their films.)  But Ghibli evoked emotion in virtually every film.  Even in ones I didn't like as much, there was still more genuine 'flowing' emotion than is found in most other animated films.

RIP Ghibli. :(
