Premiers today.....(but not really)

When I first saw the giant kanji zero, for a moment I thought "They are actually Zerosakis!!"

Dare I say...heads will roll?

I don't know if this had been announced and I missed it, but are they going with half Karen episodes and Tsukihi for the other half of the episodes? From the summary list it looks like Bake's mains will just be incorporated into the story instead of having their own episodes this time around.

Eh? How so? Excuse my ignorance but how is the number of animation directors connected with SHAFT's infamous ability to mess up every schedule they set up

That's not just limited to Shaft. Having a lot of animation director means they basically did not have much time, thus they split up the episode in to pieces and animated it separately. That's something I heard from internet pen-pal who's working on that industry.

In case of Shaft, they are constantly sending almost half or more of amount of works to China, since they don't have time... (...) Studios with the worst scheduling = Shaft, Studio DEEN, Satelight, Seven Arcs

Is it not equally possible that it's a translation error, and the people listed are the animation supervisors, where it would be completely possible to have more than one on an episode, especially given that they seem to be different people on every episode?

Edit: Sorry, I reread it, and some of those people were in fact the Assistant Animation Directors on Bakemonogatari so it seems unlikely they are actually supervisors. That said I can never really tell where Shaft have cut corners anyway, ignorance is bliss.

Heh - that's actually pretty funny. Even though this series is very rooted in Japanese folklore/mythology, I have to wonder if that could have been intended as well.

(I'm not sure if it has to be clarified... but, just in case, for any non-Native speakers, telling a child about "the birds and the bees" is a euphemism for explaining about reproduction/sex. )

Actually, more often than not, the 'animation director' is pretty much an 'animation supervisor'.

From someone who's been looking into it for years (and input from Peter Chung):
Quote:
The literal translation "animation director" can be misleading, because it seems to imply more of a creative say in filmmaking decisions than is actually the case. The movie Jin-Roh more accurately translated the term sakuga kantoku by using a less literal translation: "key animation supervisor".
Further explanation here or on wikipedia.

That said, what applejuice noted is often true: studios will need more animation directors if they need to divvy up the work because they are running out of time (this happened with the 2nd Macross Frontier film). However, there could also be other reasons, e.g. if there is a specialist for character design, another for action etc etc.

Interesting... never crossed my mind, despite one of the main that I like in anime is the consistency of their designs, I guess it extends to supervision as well
