Kamitani Tomohiro, the action director of Madoka Magica, said that he suddenly getting a lot of job offers/works from other places, after finishing the series. It's obviously because Madoka Magica became so famous, all the staffs involved in it is getting better receptions than any other animators.

  2. Yeah we will probably have a lot of interesting new original anime because of Madoka effect.

    But also we woill see cute PVs of not so innocent series like the Kamisama dolls girls side PV.

    Angel beast, I didn't watched it but that type of anime is like to be a season one. It gets quite popular because it is interesting while airing and people follows it but after time the fandom dissapears going to a newer seasonal anime one. Like Anohana anime for this season.

  3. How did Angel Beats fuck everyone when it was the second best selling anime of last year and was critically acclaimed?

  4. Critically acclaimed? The fans were outraged!
    Originally, the big 4s of vns included Urobuchi and Maeda.
    Now, Urobuchi is undeniably the second with Maeda out of the list. The reason that Maeda didn't do the scriptwriting of Rewrite was for this reason.

    Also, Urobuchi's story-writing ability did not change, Saya was still his best job, Madoka only showed that he could write a 12 episode anime script.
    His popularity did get a boost though, this was the reason that caused the re-release of Kokugai.

  5. But to be honest, PA didn't get fucked, Shaft also had a large number of fails, so one lame anime wouldn't hurt a lot.

    Also, Aniplex got fucked, Madoka was such a huge title, yet they still managed to get the disk printed wrong (For the second volume, the lyrics were printed wrong), and this wasn't the first time.

    Nitro+ probably wouldn't gain much attention from Madoka, after this success, Urobuchi's VN production will be slowed down dramatically due to his work on animes.

  6. LOL, saying that Angel Beats got fucked when it sold 34k (BD+DVD) on average is just ridiculous.
    Maeda cannot write a 1 cour series because he has too many ideas, if anything.

  7. Of course, on the flip side Nitro+ might get more work with the way Stein;Gate is doing... might.

  8. Here's to their health and prosperity and inspiration! =D
    Urobuchi is probably gonna make a career as an anime writer. I personally like Madoka better than Saya no Uta (for having less gore and more plot twists), but that's a good work, too. And Nitro+ is producing a Madoka [visual?] novel, so they'll get their piece of hype for sure. =)))
    As to Angel Beats, I personally liked the series quite a bit and consider it the best from Key (although it might be thanks to Seiji Kishi who managed to balance out Key's usual "cute, thoughtful and sloooow-developing philosophy" by good action pacing and healthily absurd humour). But rumours actually have it that: 1) the series was abridged from two-cour to one-cour, much to the director's chagrin, and 2) Maeda wasn't TOO obsessed with writing a full two-cour story, instead switching to music ASAP. Dunno how much truth is there to these, but that could explain some things. Still, IMHO Angel Beats was a really nice ride, even if not lasting in terms of hype.

    Now, back to topic - where do I find Kyuubey to become a magical girl and wish for ANOTHER project bringing Shinbo, Urobuchi and Kajiura together? =DDDDDDDDDD

  9. If there is single thing that damaged Maeda's reputation most, that is Angel Beats. The problem with it was that originally Maeda made the script that is equivalent of almost SIX COUR series. He made the series way too heavy for ONE COUR animation. It's not really his fault, though. But his blog was basically exploding with complains during the serie's airing.

    Angel Beats fucked many people, because it did not leave up to the hype. When it was showing all the advertisement and stuffs, I though it will easily beat Bakemonogatari if it goes well. It still sold very good, but I believe its quality was not deserved. PA Works also got flamed for very mediocre animation quality and direction (eg. CG sniping gun scene), and normally, their sakuga is supposed to be top of all studios.

    After Angel Beats, I haven't heard any words from Producer Toba from Aniplex. Honestly, he is the biggest reason who made Angel Beats into a huge disappointment. On the other hand, Iwakami is now on-hold of half of company production's control.

    Everyone got fucked, because a lot of people including me, who wanted masterpiece, ended up having incomplete piece of overhyped work.

  10. I didn't have any feeling that AB would beat Bakemonogatari. When I first saw its advertisement, I think that the characters were a rip off from Haruhi. I was not disappoint watching it though. Because I didn't have any anticipation from it in the first place. Its joke was boring. Story was worth some discussions but also ended up boring. I barely had any interest to watch its second half of the season.

    AB was a series which convinced me again that I shouldn't watch KEY series. It may be only me but I feel that KEY series are all extremely boring.

  11. Heh, I also didn't have any hype about AB. =) On the contrary, the whole "fighting the God" annotations left me thinking that it was going to be another show making religion references into pure crack, like Seikon no Quazer did. In reality, the plot turned out to be better (than the aforesaid), with nice music, a handful of moments to make me rub my eyes, and it turned out to have Seiji Kishi at the wheel (whom I had good impression of since Seto no Hanayome). So, perhaps, I liked AB exactly because my initial expectations were pretty low.
