Hehehe...when was the last time you saw this thread ppl? That was ages ago huh? Well, to those who don't know...this is the thread that started this art and anime board...not to mention the longest thread in flashkit history...Because other ppl are reopening the f2k thread trying to beat this thread...it is only fair to reopen this thread...also, armadillo requested nicely that this thread be reopened again...WE WILL BEAD THAT OTHER THREAD...MUAHAHAHAHA (no i'm not insane...:))

Edited 8/3/2000:

i have posted a thread wondering what others opinions were, and a majority of the replies agree with closing the thread...this thread has brought a home to many anime flashers...and it has brought me happiness to see that there are anime flashers who love and appreciate japanese anime and made it possible for a anime forum to open...i hope that this new anime board will continue to expand with various discussions and threads...Since we have a whole anime board to discuss anime, i am going to close this thread...if there is a large demand to reopen this thread, i will reopen it :)

I'm assuming you mean the real Cardcaptor Sakura, and not the WB's butchered version. :)
I'm really fond of most Anime, and I do very much like the artwork of CLAMP (hence my previous comment ;)), just about anything and everything coming out of Studio Ghibli, Madhouse does some good work...

I've finally found an anime fan on flash kit...wonder if there's more...I love clamp's work sooo much. WB's version of card captor sakura really sux. i have the fansub version of those tapes, and after watching those, the WB dubbed version cuts out a lot of the emotion and details...did u notice on the first episode of WB's Card Captors, when they introduced shao lan, the teacher turned around, but didn't write anything...in the fan subs, he turne around to write his name...they cut out soooo many of the detail in the dubbed version...

I'm still plugging a few of my faves:
- Macross Plus (the 4 tape version, not the movie)
- Castle of Cagliostro (old Miyazaki, great flick)
- Ninja Team Gatchaman (Battle of the Planets or G-Force to those who grew up in the States)
- Patlabor2 (1 is pretty good too, although a bit slow)
- Guyver (I like this one although most people don't)

Kraken --- U must B an olde -tymer like myself...the titles you mentioned are the only ones I recognize!!

Remember the old days when you had to know a friend of a friend who taped them off TV and the copies were pure garbage? But we sat thru it anyway...

I got in during the big mecha-craze years:

Mobile Suit Gundam and Zeta Gundam
Super-dimentional Spacefortress Macross
Heavy Metal L.Gaim
The Five Star Stories
Transformers (yes, Transformers!)
Megazone 23
Giant Gorg
Space Cruiser Yamato
Space Pirate Captain Harlock
Dirty Pair (original series)
Lupin III (and any Miyazaki films)
Urusei Yatsura
Project A-ko
Gall Force
Fight! Iczer 1
Akira
Angel's Egg
Robot Carnival
City Hunter (manga)
Original Cream Lemon
Ujin Brand

....man, the old days....I just don't know this new stuff!! I'm probably a good 5-6 years out of date. The most recent thing I've seen is Giant Robo!!

I saw Ozamu Tezuka (Phoenix 2774, Astro Boy) in 1983.
Visited some studios in Tokyo in 1988. Watched the first half of Totoro at the offices of Animage. A lifetime ago..!!

Hand me my cane...

I'm getting 8 Five Star Stories manga...I heard it was really really good...except the girs are all too anarexic looking...i guess that's normal for anime. For those who like anime with robot fights and all that stuff...I really suggest u to see Vision of Escaflowne...it was really popular at one time...until pokemon took over...i think the drawing is really good...except for the big noses :)

Has anyone heard of Yami no Matsuei? I heard that was a really good manga...i got a bookmark of it when i purchased my ayashi no ceres manga, and i fell in love with the drawings

I've watched Akira before. I'd like to get into manga. I already read a lot of comic books and some manga-esque ones (Blade of the Immortal - Hiroaki Samura) and want to get stuff Like NEON Genesis and Ghost in the shell. I also like Samurai/ ninja stories, I heard about something kinda new called Ninja X??? I need money though, so poopy!!

:)

fierystars
07-14-2000, 03:29 PM
UKFaithless, if u really want cheap mangas, get them in chinese, and then visit some translation sites ^__^...For example, Bakaretsu hunters was around 8 dollars for the japanese version, but 6 dollars for the chinese version, and god knows how much the english version is (probably around 15 or so)...

07-14-2000, 03:51 PM
yea, what i learned was to draw the eyes first, that way, whatever emotion the eyes show, i can complete the face fitting to that emotion (hopefully)...

Does anyone else draw or doodleor write anime in their spare time? If so, please post it here...i'm sure there are a lot of talented people here in flashkit.com...Everyone's talented here! (even tho some deny it)

Are there any other anime fans out there...my friend just made a bet with me that not even 5 percent of flashers like anime...i so want to prove her wrong because she's been dissing anime ever since she heard about it...if you know anyone who loves anime, and is a flasher...tell them to sign here :) writing their fav. anime series down...that way, i can proove her wrong, and watch the series i've never seen before that u guys think is really really good. Which brings me to this...I still need more anime to watch over this weekend...i have 14 hours of spare time for anime...and 14 hours of spare time for flash...now, for the 14 hours of anime...i have 3 movies so far, which is probably about 4 hours long...what am i going to do for the remaing 10 hours? hehehe...yea...i have way too much time on my hands...

Does anyone know of an anime series where the dubbed version is better than the subbed version?

armadillo88
07-15-2000, 09:33 AM
from what ive seen. the dubbed is ALAWAYS better than subtitiles. of coursae if u understand japanese then getting the original is better and cheaper. nice pics u got there. illl try to get some up

i have a question, what IS manga nad anime :confused:
i know it's the animation kind of style, but really what IS IT?

Akane
07-15-2000, 04:50 PM
manga is tha japanese word for comic strips.
so manga are the japanese comics. while japanim (japanese animation) is the animes/movies.

fierystars
07-15-2000, 05:10 PM
I would like to add another thing to Akane's reply...Mangas usually tend to be black and white, and have more detailed pictures. In mangas, the author would tend to draw out every wrinkle in the clothing, etc. The colored manga have more color detail and colors are easily blended...almost like watercolor. The author would usually use different shades, depending on the mood he/she wants to create. The anime has a more simplistic drawing...the clothers dunt have as much detail in the folds,etc. One thing i've really noticed about the anime is that the colors are really simple...no blended colors...

This may not apply for all anime tho...this is what i've noticed about all the books i've read and the anime i've seen...

CNO
07-16-2000, 12:17 AM
Firey,
The reason anime is usually less detailed than the manga is twofold. First, there is usually a small team of animators working in an anime, therefore the style has to be able to be followed by many people, rather than a single manga artist. Secondly is the fact that a typical cartoon runs 30 frames per second, and each frame has to be drawn out. Even with the telephone-book sized mangas they have coming out in Japan ;), there's still many more drawings which go into the animated pieces. The budget is also less for a television series, which have quicker turnaround times, than for, say, an OVA. That's why the animation is usually better quality in these.
An animator's life is not an easy one. :)
But you do make a good point about the Mangas. Plus, check out some of the series artbooks. They get a little pricey, but they usually have some beautiful watercolors in them.

fierystars
07-16-2000, 12:25 AM
Yea, i know that animators dunt get the money they need...jus take a look at GAINAX ( i think these are the animators who did Evangelion)...they spent soo much on Evangelion, and with the money scandals and stuff...Kare Kano anime looks crappy when it's supposed to be really good and stuff...
I have the Ayashi no Ceres artbook, Fushigi Yuugi artbook, and Card Captor Sakura artbook...the Ayashi no ceres has some really hentai pictures in it...but i like hentai stuff ;) The front cover of the Ayashi no Ceres is a naked pic of Aya (The main character), and the back side is a naked pic of Ceres (the main character's previous life form)...

I jus visited a site for Perfect Blue...couldn't wait to watch it...jus had to be spoiled. Now, i can't wait to watch it...really good plot, if only i had more time. I really wish that there were 48 hours in a day...or that i can be sucked into another world or dimension where these is 48 hours a day (and that i'm given magical powers to save the universe and marry a cute anime guy and spend the rest of my life with him...but that's beside the point) Sooo much anime...sooo lil time.

My Favorite Series is Record of Lodos War. Nothing beats that.

If you like funny then you gotta watch Slayers and Ruin Explorers.

If you like ancient japan then you gotta see Ninja Scroll.

And for the futuristic fans Wicked City, Ghost in a Shell, and Akira are a must-see.

Back in the day (when I was five,) it was Thundercats and Transformers. Yeah!

fierystars
07-17-2000, 10:08 AM
The last time I checked...Dragonball GT was still selling as fansubs, which means it hasn't been commercially released (i think)...once it is commercially released, it will be shown on Cartoon network...If u really want to see it,go to

http://www.geocities.com/Tokyo/Bridge/7951/title.html

they're selling 6 tapes for 25 dollars...the only thing is, that it's in the original japanese voices (which i usually prefer...dunt know about u) and there are subtitles in english that u have to read...

07-17-2000, 10:20 AM

........I read an article about GT coming over to cartoon network.... I could'nt rem when.

DBZ GT is still active in Japan, so it'll be a while before it comes over here. They're still subbing and acquiring the DBZ episodes, so GT is probably a ways off. But I'm sure Cartoon Network has all intentions of picking it up, as they are also trying to get as many of the Movies as they can. Thankfully, Cartoon Network is taking a more active role in "quality control", as it were, and the Trunks series which will be showing before the end of the summer is supposed to be of much better quality than the ones they have showed so far (many which were previously dubbed and licenced for syndication, hence the poorer quality). Naturally, they will have to be edited somewhat (well, they don't *have* to be, but I'm sure they will be...)

Thanx :) I have to buy a scanner some time soon...i have pics but they're all on paper ;-;
There are a lot of Fansubbers on http://www.anipike.com who will sell u the fansub tapes for a couple of dollars...the tapes usually doesn't have the editing process the US put into it to keep violence and sex out...for example, the US named Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus as cousins *attempting* to explain y they're so loving and close...but that jus makes it worse...the us has made them incests...hahaha:) It's probably the same for Dragonball...where japan has more episodes showing than the US because japanese are probably used to sex and violence in their everyday cartoons...hehehe...either that, or they jus dunt care...
My favs is the first post on the thread ^_^ (plus some additional ones recommended by ppl here at flashkit)

Only problem to watch out for in the fansubs is the great fluctuation in tape quality. Many times, if a series is popular enough, the subs/dubs will be released commercially by a company like Pioneer, and will have all of the original content. (The main reason the TV eps are usually hacked to pieces are network regulations - not decisions made by stations).
The regulations are a little more lax overseas, and they accept anime as a respectable source of entertainment, not like the american market, where cartoons are just for kids. There are lots more prime-time cartoons in Japan than there are here in the States (but quite a few are being made nowadays. There's hope for animators yet!)
Anyways, just to toss out another valuable resource, http://www.animenewsnetwork.com usually has some good advance info about the industry in general.
How'd the weekend of Flashing and Anime go, firey? :)

Here's the pages for some pictures of the Blade of the Immortal I mentioned (I didn't do them)... I guess this is Manga and some times during the comical situations detail is lost and it goes more towards Anime style.
It's colour in the weekly comics, but the Trade Paperbacks I collect print the black and white version.

I am a writer but not anime or manga, mainly I do crime stories, a bit of comicbook fanfic, and recently my own comicbook scripts. :)

I have about 1000 dollars to spend...but i dunt know whether to spend it at FF2000 where i can learn more about flash :) (more productive for my future...)...or at OTAKON (the biggest anime convention on the east coast)and watch anime movies, buy anime stuff, and see music videos that ppl have made...my parents have decided to let me go to one of them...not both :( can't decide...

Hello from Slovenia (I hope anybody knows where slovenia is )

So As I live right next to italy I can see many of their TV progs. And as you know Italy is the 3rd country for anime and manga. only next to japan and us. So when I was younger there was no anime I haven't seen. And I am still watchin Dragon Ball /Z. I find the 1. series of DB more funny and this Z series too violent but what a heck, that's why I like it. So this is my fav anime!

The second one is Lupin. any guys watched Rensie the whitch (I really don't know the english or japanese titles I will only translate them from Italian) or Tommy Young the NYG star or devilma, godzigma, mazinger, daltanious, yataman (on of my favs) or muteking, gigi, gigi la trottola (a small guy who was a pro in all sports and he was in love with his friend Anna and always compete with her dog for her love) Or sampey the fisherman or whatever. Anyone has seen this anime?

I would really love to see the new ones like ninja scroll or rurouni kenshin but really don't know where. :(

Ok, see ya you anime fans

Damir

07-19-2000, 07:59 AM
If u want to see rurouni kenshin...i know where u can get it on tape for about 6 or 7 dollars per tape...i own all of them ^__^ cuz i'm a big rurouni kenshin fan! There are 94 eps of Rurouni kenshin, and an unaired 95 eps. and There are 4 OAV and a movie.That's about 26 or 27 tapes all together. When i get home, i can post the link to this fansubber that i got all of my rurouni kenshin tapes from. He has a huge collection of tapes, maybe u'll see other tapes u like. If u want, i can post that link...

(That's the killer :) I've written the basic text to go with my Squash & Stretch tutorial, now i've got to throw together some animation.)
It'll be here soon. A Flashkit exclusive! :D

By any chance...does anyone know what "xenogears" is? (i think that's the title) i saw an artbook for it, but i couldn't get a close enough view of the cover at the site i saw it at...i also looked for it on the internet, but i didn't find any info...the picture didn't seem that bad...but i might be wrong...the sample pics were the size of quarters...

I once played a demo of this Japanese game called "I am the chef" for the Playstation, where the point of the game was to run a restaurant - cooking ramen noodles, chopping vegetables, all using the analogue controls. It was great - I'm hoping to find it in import. Great for all you "Iron Chef" fans out there. :)

DUDE! Anime kicks bottom! Living in Ohio, of the U.S. of A, I do not get too much of that good stuff, mainly the good stuff is DBZ, Sailor Moon, Tenchi Muyo, and Gundam Wing. But I always hope for anime movies to play on the Sci Fi Channel, last time they did that, I remember it being 2 summers ago. But I do find episodes of all the other good anime shows on the web (Thank you web!). I will rate all I have seen:

- Tenchi Muyo - 5
- Gundam Wing - 5
- Dragonball Z - 5
- Sailor Moon - 3 <-- Hehe, sister obsessed with this one.
- Pokemon - 1.75
- Digimon - 0
- Monster Ranchers - 0
- Tenchi Universe - 5 <--- Similar story, but with changes, which is cool! Started today, and I like the changes.

But seriously, I've only recently begun drawing anime-influenced work (I still don't do manga work, moreso I incorporate the style into my own drawing style). It begun slipping in there on its own with the more shows I watched and manga I read, so finally I just accepted it.
But I'm still miles away from the work of some of the great japanese manga artists. Y'all familiar with the work of Yo****aka Amano?

I draw and animate most of my stuff on paper, then trace it in the computer (which also sort of acts as cleanup for my pencil roughs).
I actually do do some teaching, but that's quite another thing. I'll get back to your e-mail as soon as I get home tonight, master. Remember - we all started somewhere. Everyone has somewhere around 10,000 bad drawings in them, and the sooner you get rid of those, the better you will be. :)
There's no trick, really. Just lots of drawing, sketching, observing, more sketching, etc, etc.

fiery-chan !
the akane animation was turned into vector with the "trace bitmap" command. Just take care to adjust the contrast in photoshop 'or other) before importing, and choose setings like "color : 50" "pixel : 20". for a black and white drawing.

07-21-2000, 12:17 PM
Yeah, I agree. It's got a really paper-cutout style of animation which doesn't really suit the character designs. I think the joints should either be more obvious, or the motion should be handled some other way. But it's good to see that the work is out there.

shockanime
07-21-2000, 03:04 PM
Yeah, I don't like my intro either, I only did the cut out animation style to make the file size smaller and download faster. Also it's my first animation in flash and it's kinda old,(made 3 months ago) If you notice the art on the rest of the site, my style is different from that of the intro. That is the style you'll see in my webmovies. I going to make a "real intro" once I finish this first webmovie and it's will not be cut and paste animation. It's more frame by frame animation. The only catch is the file size will bigger and take longer to download :( But hey everyone's want's it to look good. :) So that's what I'll give them.

Oh, well back to work.

shockanime
07-21-2000, 03:15 PM
Oh... and the music of course, I got it from the Tenchu, I got the soundtrack and I listen to it everyday while I'm drawing and animating. I fell in love with the music. I figured everyone else would like that instead of the overly use techno background music. Plus I felt it fit my site (I wish I could write and compose music):(

One more thing, I'm only one person, People think Shockanime website is made by a group or a team, Nope it's not. It's just lil ol' me. My writer will help write stories and help with the voice acting.

:) :) :):):):)

And for you other guys thinking about doing a shockwave flash anime site, Please do. I'll add your site to my links page. Speaking of links has anyone seen "BattleSeed" at http://www.othervision.com I thought it was kinda cool.:)

i think that i would me cut out for moderator since im always on and i know alot about not only anime series but also the art of anime. its not just drawings that make anime. its the characters that make it happen. and in order to make the characters u gotta get the emotions down and their lifestyle. it all works together so harmoniously. so do i make the cut? :D hehehe

CNO is on my hitlist... but we have a deal, he is going to do some anime characters of the Moderators, then he's in.
Hopefully he can do up a button too for the anime section,
I think I will make a mini site called
flashkit.com/anim that will link to this forum, and have
links to anime sites, flashkit anime cartoons, etc etc
what do you think?
