¡Bienvenido al 2017! Arrancamos otro año más con el típico optimismo y vitalidad que irá muriendo a medida que pasan los meses para encarar nuevos horizontes.

The topic concerning anime one has rated a four got deleted, so I'll just leave my reply to your post here.

Clannad Movie

Imagine that you have a promising franchise. Imagine that you want to make a movie because usually film quality will allow for more detailed artwork and animation than something with the budget and time restrictions of a TV series. Imagine that everything goes horribly wrong and you turn a show with a great visual effort into an unappealing movie with gritty dull colors that go totally against the mood of the show and make it look like it came in the wrong generation, stiff expressions and plain lazy visuals. If you think that's discouraging enough, then what about trying to put together a story that expands through 47 episodes in just 90 minutes and failing miserably, because of course this sounded totally legit. Imagine that you end up cutting and leaving so much stuff out that you turn the main heroine into an annoying, shallow and unapproachable subsidiary character, her emotional arc completely toned down, and instead you make the show only about the male protagonist, but a single random scene of a single random episode of the TV series gives him more depth and significance than anything these 90 minutes of cringe-inducing snoozefest can ever dream to get.

The more I write about this, the more obvious it is that I'm only giving it a 4 because to a point watching these characters on screen again felt nice.

To be fair, the movie came first. Kyoani's TV version was a remake of sorts. Actually, Kyoani and Toei seem to have had this miniature war going on with KEY adaptations back then (with Kyoani seemingly being the victor), but I digress.

This probably blows my bright idea that it might be better to rec the movie to people over the TV series, though. It's been like... nine(?) years since I last watched it, so I don't recall enough to know whether I'd like it now.

What's the random scene you're talking about, by the way?

Saludos a todos los Federastas (y posibles candidatos).
Nuevamente es Noviembre, a un mes+ de comenzar un nuevo año. Como dato curioso, ¿Sabías que Noviembre cuenta con varios días mundiales? Pues sí, entre ellos está el Día de el/la: Diabetes (Nov. 14), Tolerancia (Nov. 16), Retrete (Nov. 19), Niño (Nov. 20), Eliminación de la Violencia contra la Mujer (Nov. 25), entre otros. Solo le hago mención para crear conciencia. Una Federación inteligente es más poderosa ;D

What are the largest/best Spanish-speaking online anime communities you're aware of?

You seem like a good person to ask.
Josh Oct 1, 2016 7:15 PM
I just watched It's Such a Beautiful Day and it was brilliant. Engaging, funny, sad. The visual experimentation was a slam-dunk. My only minor quibble is that it takes some effort to keep up with the film's rapid pace, even though it's only an hour long.

I watched A Separation a few weeks ago and enjoyed it a lot. A well-crafted drama if there ever was one. It never felt melodramatic, even though the family's problems seemed small (or at least manageable) when taken individually. A very subtle and emotional film.

Heya, saw What We Do in the Shadows in your recent activity on letterboxd. How was it? Like does it appeal to everyone or is it one of those comedies that's for certain people?

Chroniko Yes. I was crying in my heart not tears on how the story was made in Chroniko... And the music has much heavy impact afterwards Yuasa is really good in making complex character drama even if the presentation is simple and basic but it hit's the spot!

The other episode is the Old Grandma and her decease lovers. That shake me to the bones. They discuss what is true happiness is all about and no amount of expensive treasure outweight and I my heart cried again on the two twins that got left out.

The other is the police guy but he is typical one the nicest guy. I don't even see a cartoony villain or character. All of them are more complex than those well animated people that look like people but ain't no real character to begin with. Kaiba is amazing even with some problems with the ending finale that seems kinda rush where it can be elaborated further it's a solid masterpiece in my eyes.
Ezekiel_01 Sep 15, 2016 5:53 AM
What are you opinion in Kaiba? 57% Affinity well that's a surprise.

I can infer a bit about things like the meaning behind the shoes (it helps her to fully walk, or rather live again as the seeds of depression begin to vanish and the protagonist making them is significant because of the relationship that blossoms between them is what helps her - am I getting that right?) in Garden, but 5 cm still leaves me cold regardless of how aware I am of his style. To put it in another way, you can say the imagery represents states of mind and the monologues are meant to evoke certain emotions, but the generality of it leads it adrift and parallel the wallowing of the characters itself. I'm familiar with stuff that leans towards the more visceral and monologues meant to give presence to feelings, it still remains shallow. I've watched Tsumiki no ie and was able to empathize with the character, you're able to hold on to emotion as if they tangible based on how his life is rendered and his reactions. You're able to pinpoint what's driving him and make sense of it as the story moves. It's been awhile, but I immediately liked it. You don't need heavy dialogue to gather a full picture of a character to the point of they feel real, which is why it feels like Shinkai is limited. I don't think his style conflicts with that.

It goes beyond the dullness of his characters, it's how unbelievable developments in the narrative feel. Emotions are elaborated on, but not explored or built on in a way that makes it feel like you're getting anything out of the experience that wasn't already evident. Does that make sense? It leaves me nothing to really ponder, even the symbols are repeatedly beat over your head. Thinking about it, I would wager 5 cm would be much better if it was shortened to avoid what comes across as meandering. There's also the case where his movies don't seem to come convincing together as a whole thematically because of the unbelievably of what's transpiring and how lifeless it all feels. I did plan to revisit it to see if my mind might change about it, but even Shinkai's newest movie left a bad taste in my mouth. Regardless, I'll be able to better explain myself. I'll see about the shorts you mentioned.
TonyTheme Sep 12, 2016 12:10 PM
I think I can learn a thing or two in a continuation of this conversation in a broader way that may conflict with the thread's topic. I've only really been actively trying to discern stylistic sensibilities of specific directors in a more analytical way, attempting to become aquatinted with film theory through books, and whatever the fuck else in regards to narrative for almost a year now. What is it about Shinkai's Garden of Words that struck a chord with you despite its contrast with your typical taste? What would the latter be, actually (other than what you mentioned in the thread)? Eh, you may read this before you actually reply to me again in the thread.
