Hmm. I haven't noticed that tendency. Does anyone else? But I see your gripe. I would agree that just because anime becomes a live action, doesn't mean it's better. Let's take GTO for example again, in some respects the live action does better than the anime, but the anime excels in some aspects than the live action. Of course one's got to watch the shows first to make a judgment, but to say which form of show is better, that's subjective and depends on the viewer. That's true for any show, independent of what form it is in.

That short 20-30 min movie that took you one month to edit...in animation it would be twelve weeks from start to finish...if all goes well. If not, sixteen weeks. We can only hope that the client knew what he was doing before he drew the storyboards. Otherwise, the pressure's on us.
But keep in mind that we were mere students, and our film was obviously amateur. And that we were also restricted by time (we really only had a month before the end of the semester, and class was finished). If it was a professional production, who knows, that 20-30 minute movie might take much more a month to perfect.

As I sit here typing trying to celebrate New Year's, a colleague of mine just rang the phone asking me where to find an installer so that this certain Canadian expat director who spends twenty hours a day on cartoons can continue proofing his work along with his army of dedicated local animators. It isn't a sweatshop, it's worse than that.
Oh of course. How could I have miss/forgotten this. After reading this paragraph, all of a sudden I understand your perspective and position, because you have a strong bias of actually working in the anime industry. OK, fair enough. I wonder if it would be interesting to see a professional in film talk to a professional in anime (such as you) about who has the harder job. But then I think that would be pointless as each one would have their own difficult hurdles to face. So I'll stop and say, thanks for your views. And yeah, I'm not going to even touch the topic of DVDs and ethics of fansubbing with my cursor.

Try watching the episode 4 when you're wasted and you'll see that it makes perfect sense for Karasuma to be wearing a kappa suit. I'm convinced that every episode of School Rumble needs to be watched twice. Once when you're drunk off your ass and once more when you are stoned.
Heh heh, I was going say something similar but I held back. But now that you've mention it, I'm convinced ever since I watched Serial Experiments Lain, that it is best watched when you're high (on Acid or something). The strong contrast, almost psychedelic colors, and bizzare editing/perspective shots, really feels like it would be an enjoyable trip if one was high.

I usually skip the OP for Monster and sometimes the OP for Yakitate, but that's pretty much it.

You've shocked me! That is vandalization indeed! Unlike School Rumble which is about wild insane fun, Lain is a deep show full of meaning. If you actually did this, then you'd never be able to properly appreciate and understand Serial Experiments Lain as it deserves.

Now, the show to drop acid on is FLCL. That show is just begging for some Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. We need to be very careful to match the right shows to the right drugs or else you'll do harm to them both.

Rest assured NoSanninWa, I did view Serial Experiments Lain with a clean mind, several times in fact. I have no doubt Lain is imbedded with meanings and messages you formulate yourself (a design like that recent movie Syriana /plug). But during those watchings I thought, surely the presentation attributes of Lain can be enjoyed through the lense of a drug . After all, watching a show multiple times (in whatever ways and methods) is more entertainment for the time/money. I think that's enough talk about drugs, it almost feels like we're condoning it. Let's just make this clear: Improper use of drugs is bad! /Mahoro voice.

I only skip the openings after around the 5th or 6th episode, gets repetitive.

I am not aware about being high, but if you go to work all day, then come back and attempt to time this beauty, then you get to see a wonderful "different" side to it.
