 No.98099

So the most anticipated anime of the year aired yesterday.... Does anyone have any thoughts on it or anything?

 No.98100

pretty meh, felt like typical norm stuff

 No.98103

It's not a genre I'm interested in, but I'll see what all the hubbub is about. From what what little I've seen of people talking about it, people are disappointed in the quality. Well, there's no way it can be worse than Biscuit Hammer. I heard it uses rotoscoping and I think that's there in the webm and I personally like rotoscoping but I think not everyone does.
There's already a lot of things I'm enjoying this season so it's going to be hard to impress me

I heard the worst about the adaptation, and went in expecting to be completely disappointed. Was pleasantly surprised, and happy to see, that the retards over where I was pointed to were just retards playing up the worst of the episode. Yeah, there was crappy CG used in the battle, but it wasn't nearly as awful throughout as people make it out to be and show it as with cherrypicked webms. At some points I'd even say it meshed together surprisingly well with the rest of the scene given what it was. The 2D animation is perfectly high budget, and for some reason what you'd expect to be crappy CG (the zombie devil) was wholly 2D animated. I'll have to wait and see how they animate the upcoming episodes to judge whether they "ruined" the action or not, but I don't think that the opening one is particularly anything that stuck out in my memory from reading the manga, though for first impressions it is kinda messy I think. Makima's voice is still going to take some adjusting to but depending on how she delivers more serious lines maybe I can get used to it. Denji sounds fine. Overall a pretty good first episode, enthusiastically awaiting the rest of the adaptation now instead of dreading it like I thought I would.

Also, it's a nice little touch that the OP has a bunch of references to film to fit in with both the Makima and Denji at the cinema bit and also Fujimoto's love for cinema. Not necessarily a fan of the song, but the visuals are 10/10, and I really like the ED song used but haven't seen what it looks like...

People are really overhyping the problems with it in order to cause outrage and shit on current popular thing. It's not really something you should pay attention to because it's people intentionally trying to be angry. Chainsaw Man's a fun story with really engaging characters so I do hope you give it a chance.

Dang. Who finds all these references? I saw some of these movies, but who can actually remember the position of actors in a scene like that? Crazy.

It was fine, nothing like the 'disaster' the shitposters on /a/ (who are now indistinguishable from /v/ shitposters) are trying to make it out to be. The CGi was a bit kuso, but it doesn't ruin the whole episode. The problem is that the zombie fight is nothing like how it is in the manga; they extended it a lot to make it a full EP since it's just condensed into a single chapter in the manga and therefore had to add a lot of wonky choreography nobody asked for to it. Next eps will likely be better.

>>98123
Yes, that's another small problem with it. Makima's VA is some idol who has never had any major roles before. I heard it's because of a deal with Sony Music. And Denji's VA is completely new in the scene, it's literally his first role, but I thought his performance was okay.

 No.98125

>>98124
I've heard speculation that the reason for Makima's VA being who it is, is that they're planning to use her for Nayuta too. Which would make sense.

Combined might of a bunch of people on the internet on a scavenger hunt to find the references. Also think this must be one too, but I've only seen guesses as to what, like He-Man or Thor.

Another nice little touch in the OP is that when Denji's crashing into different buildings and such the impact craters spell out CSM, for Chainsaw Man.

I think I could get used to her voice, if she pulls off the more serious scenes well and doesn't sound exactly the same as she sounds now. But if this is just her constant speaking voice I'm gonna have some problems...

This was probably the biggest issue with the episode structurally, but I don't really see how they avoid it. Setting the premise and leading people in with the first episode kinda has to be done by adapting solely the first chapter, but it's just one chapter they need to fit into 24 minutes. When I went back to see how long the actual fight was in the manga, it's a mere 8 pages for quickly taking out the zombie devil and all the zombies after Denji is revived. Anime extends this to 4 minutes with some filler action.

Well, episode 2 dispelled most of the worries I had for this adaptation by actually doing the comedy bits right and Power's casting being 10/10. Definitely jumped back up to being potentially the best anime this season.

Still a bit worried about how Makima's going to sound during her non-acting scenes.

The strongest animal. Nyannyan

 No.98594

Think I figured out why they made Chainsaw Man CG while nothing else in the anime is. It's most likely due to how much time it would've taken to fully 2D animate him with his chainsaws running at all times. But, at the same time if they just made the chainsaws exclusively 3D it would've really stood out like a sore thumb, so they made a compromise and just made him entirely 3D trying to mask it with 2D any time they can so that it looks the best while also not taking up extreme amounts of budget. Disappointing to an extent, yeah, but also somewhat understandable. Maybe they find a way to improve it in the BDs, but the saving grace from what it seems is that they probably won't abuse CG for the other characters because none of them have such a quirk that'd make animating them fully require such effort.

Also pretty metal ED

I think my biggest issue with the adaptation would have to be the sound design. Especially when it comes to music setting the wrong tone for what's meant to be joke and then somewhat harming the punchline. Although the end of ep2 and ep3 were done pretty well.

>Feels like a waste to only use it for a single ep though
I completely disagree. In the long run almost all of these EDs are going to be remembered and it'll definitely carve a place into people's memory, not to mention it's definitely going to make more people tune in to see what the next ED is. It's a way to add onto the original manga too. Also while they last only a single episode, you can revisit all of them any time and judging by the views on them a whole lot of people are.
