Be nice!  Truck-kun works hard under stressful conditions to meet the demands of the manga publishers.  Look at the artistry here--the hit had to not only be survivable but just debilitating enough to need plenty of rehab, yet allow a full recovery.  That's some very precise impact, but does truck-kun get any respect?


It's like poor Wile E. Coyote.
Everyone talks about how his inventions never work.
About him falling over cliffs all the time.
But do they ever mention all of the realistic paintings of tunnels he has made over the years? No.

I don't care for Isekai stories, but imagining Kugimiya in one would be quite something.

 

"The Demon Lord is a bunch of pubes!"

 

If this were an isekai, or if they played a game, which role would go to each character?

(I honestly imagined Kugimiya as the Demon Lord XD)

Truck-kun strikes again! When will his reign of terror end?!

CHINATSU'S VOICE IS HEARD FOR THE FIRST TIME EVERYONE. AND SO ARE AKIRA AND KUGIMIYA.

 

 

BUT I'M MAINLY HYPED FOR CHINATSU CUZ I LOVE HER.

Man, this chapter was plainly amazing.

It wasn't his backstory or anything that stood out to me, rather, it was the line "They're all in their own personal hell".

 

Then it goes to show Tatara being depressed at losing some ticks.

The mentor/mentee relationship being one of my favorite themes in storytelling, that short exchange was a fucking treat.

Truck-kun strikes again! When will his reign of terror end?!

When his arch-rival, the japanese cold, goes into retirement.

Hey ya'll! Just joined these forums, and I just wanted to say I'm so excited for Chinatsu to appear in the anime, because I love her so much and she's BEST GIRL!

THE THING IS by simply googling ice skating and say dancing like quickstep you will know that dancing require more movements you are comparing the movement for a person sliding their body most of the time and TWO person walking running skipping most of the time. And more movement means more frames more frames means more drawing more drawing means more time and money unless you have more animators then just more money and money. Now we have a choice a movie budget 1 hour special where the dances are fully animated or 24 ep of the anime pick fking one. They still do deliver in those fluid dances though just for a few sec and mostly reserved for variations but just once lol. But be fking realistic these guys are over worked.

 

Realistic, yes.  It's just feels disappointing to look at dancing-wise.  All the cuts to still shots don't make for an exciting experience and there's this really weird disconnect where characters describe what is happening but all we are seeing are people floating in slow motion most of the time. 

 

Unfortunately I agree that this is the best we can get for 24 episodes.  Animating in Japan seems to be very stressful and inefficient, the show already had one animator die by the 2nd episode.  Albeit not from the main crew but still terrible news.

 

There are other methods that could have solved these issues but that depends on the resources put into production.  Ideally would've liked the show to spend more time in production before broadcast or even to split the show into two separate cours rather than a straight 24 episode run.  Even just reusing the fluid footage more often could make the dancing scenes more interesting.  Not ideal but instead it feels like we get a few seconds of animation and minutes of stills in one episode.  Felt like that for the conclusion to the flower and frame arc where I'd expected them to put their best work. 

 

Also, I wonder if rotoscoping could helped too.  Again, depends if production could afford that. 

Poor dude
 
Got hit by truck-san but was deemed unworthy of reincarnation and was sent back.
 
Also Tatara best gril

As i wrote below, sadly quoting myself as the loser that i am:

 

 

Pft, just give a look at Kakegurui. It's an anime derived from a manga about "gamble" (the plot is quite dark and NSFW, and the anime manages to get even worse at that), and the animation is simply STUNNING, starting from the OP to the EP and everything that's in between.

Even simple scenes where there's people playing cards manages to have more movement, quality and FPS than a dance scene from BeY. There's a section with an idol showoff and im telling you there's more dance in that single episode than in all the BeY anime combined.

 

Moreover, Kakegurui is a very adult oriented, niche manga, so i dont know how, how much nor why it has been so much funded, but that's it. Give it a look, i cant grant youll like the show cos the plot is... uhm... not really solid, but it has all the charme that BeY anime shouldve had and really lacks.

I think what berrybear meant was that xe was expecting more "movement". For an anime adaptation that is about dancing, the dancing scenes feel a bit static compared to Yuri on Ice. Although tbh, I've never watched Yuri on Ice, but I've seen the OP on YouTube. I was hoping that they'd animate the dance sequences like that (and maybe it's hoping for too much), instead of just several frames of a dance step or two in slowmo. The anime isn't bad and I honestly enjoy every episode, but it could have been better.

Being Kugimiya is suffering.

Yeah honestly I agree. Also I've noticed that after the 4th episode the quality of movements have degraded and the anime isn't as good anymore. What happened?!!

first episodes trail the rest of the anime, so quality drops.

AW YEAH, IT'S TIME FOR BEST GIRL TO SHOW UP IN THE ANIME!

Thanks for the other names!

Well well well, so apparently in this picture they gave us the voices of some of the characters yet to be seen. I find it hilarious that Chinatsu's seiyuu is ALSO called Chinatsu (last name being Akasaki). And Kugimiya is voiced by Sakurai Takahiro? Dang, that's wasting one helluva voice on him. I couldn't decipher the other seiyuu's names, sorry.

You can't say that without giving us some spoilers, bug*. Don't tease me.

 

I'm not a spoiler bug. Besides, if I told you, you wouldn't be as excited as you are for this month's chapter. Buzz buzz.

Found the raws, and the story was gut-wrenching on two accounts, but I'll let you figure that out for yourselves. I'll just go to my corner and cry.
