Yeah they definitely ramped up the framerate for the kitten scene for like 10 secs there or so. You can tell it's much smoother than the surrounding animation.

Some amazing animation and art detail in some of the segments, both Tsugumi and Nagi benefited tremendously from that -- especially if you watch that segment at the table when Nagi is "explaining herself" ... and the episode contained a considerable amount of plot and dialog --- some very good editing to collect all that into the episode.

I really like the prayer song chant in the ED.

Who is the artist for theYoko/Nia cosplay illustration for episode 3?

I concur, the animation is truly dazzling: now a challenge would be to search for the longest still-frame used

And the ED song is probably one of the most beautiful I have heard, with the one of Fantastic Children.

I do believe that Kannagi and Toradora are my favorites for the season. In second tier is Kyou no Go no Ni - mostly because it lead me to the superb OVAs; and perhaps Hyakko (not as happy with it as I originally thought). There's a few in third tier but I find them more easily forgettable when not actually watching them.
Those are interesting possibilities. As was mentioned before, I'd add the possibility that he isn't that great at managing one or both of time and money.

I like the shows you mention, too. There are also shows in somewhat different genres that keep lingering in my mind: ef memories, Vampire Knight, Kurozuka, Mouryou no Hako. There are a lot of other watchable shows this season, too -- fortunately or unfortunately.

I've not had a chance to look at ef memories but am downloading them for later since i thought the first season was an interesting effort.

Haven't had a chance to think about Kurozaka or Mouryou no Hako .. and I stopped watching VK about halfway through last season... just wasn't pressing any buttons for me.

With classes this fall (yes, classes), my anime frittering time is pretty tight.

It's hard to tell. But I'll suggest you check animation directors' names of your favourite episodes and start with this point: the look of an episode is established by the episode animation director. You will be able to see some new viewpoint.

It depends on animators' skills. It might sound ridiculous, but that is the way it is.

As for ep2, All I can say is, I would have enjoyed myself without Kadowaki. Numata and Kannagi fit together much better than I thought. I was worrying about nothing.
And about 2's thing... Each motion has proper frame rate to it. A whole episode made in 2's ignoring the theory is just a mistake. Was that done because Yamakan is full-animation-oriented?

Oh god what can I say, I didn't expect that Kannagi would be one of my more closely watched anime this season. The opening is catchy as hell, but I have to wonder if it will actually have anything to do with the story later. The first two episodes were beautiful, and I actually plan to re-watch them later on. Even tough the whole concept has been done a million times, the characters, animation, and humor is what's drawing me in. As long as they keep those three things in tact, this could be my anime of the season.

I have known it in the name of "Crazy Shrine Maiden".The character designs, animation production and general flow of this series is superb.
Kannagi is Luckystar of this season. I can not wait for next episode.

I know this isn't a tutorial board, but how do you lower the image resolution to just under 50kb regardless of the number of frames? since I noticed most of your gifs are barely under 50kb
sure, but some of the quality is gone...



I usually play around with the color gamut and the dither levels... but they don't reduce the size of the file as much as discarding frames. There's a trick when only a small portion of the image is moving, but that has been rarely the case here...

you should check this thread for all your sig/avatar questions... I'm not really good myself.

No need to make it small, I'll take the original size!
do you want the animated gift with the size of the video as well?

if that's the case, I will try to get it done later....

So you get left with at best capturing incredibly short snips of her motion like Falk did, which lacks the fluidity I'd love to capture in her longer motions...

This is why I went back to statics heh...

*edit*



Just because I didn't wanna trash it...Very AS-unfriendly Nagi.
just realized how hard is to make avies from the opening sequence without losing too much quality... let's blame it on the size limits...

sort of hard given that some text is covering part of the dance, and the clean frames left are probably not as funny or fluid... :/ anyway, my best attempt... hopefully somebody can do a better job than me. :/



@ Eczema

I'm not sure if these are the ones you wanted, but I will try to do more on the weekend, hopefully--as I'm sort of busy the following days...

for some reason I find this one hilarious...

oh yes, I can confirm that...

geez, sometimes I wonder if there's really a reason to make a scene like that so smooth--other than trying to awe/surprise the audience. It's for a few seconds but I guess any cat-lover would appreciate it... just for the cuteness.

It would seem that kitten scene is a serious moment hence the additional animation sequences. In the manga, it is a very poignant and emotional scene.

Love this scene, lolz. Wonder how she kept her skirt not falling down? Jezz, I know guys all do this... but... first time I see a girl scratch her foot like that, priceless IMO

Tomatsu Haruka definitely makes the show for me. She is fabulous as Nagi's VA, the thousand(?) year-old goddess, and she can even sing. Add her to my fav seiyuu list

Corti in Polyphonica, Sumi in Moetan, Shiho in Zettai Karen Children, Chika in Kyouran Kazoku Nikki, Lala in To Love-Ru, and right now she's also voicing MM in Kemeko Deluxe.

This series had me from the first episode's Nagi appearance scene. Simply wonderful.

Magic Skirt

@Eczema: Haruka Tomatsu is rapidly becoming one of my favourite new seiyuu: great singing voice, excellent range - light, serious, and (all at the same time!)
Kana Hanazawa also deserves a mention next to Tomatsu; having already appeared three times, the two might soon become the next Horie-Tamura.
