Actually, as shown by Madoka and Denpa to Onna, Shaft finally seems to have an acceptable budget.
And Madhouse isn't just suited to darker anime; don't just go by their most popular work. They've also produced BECK, Maple Story (A terrible shonen anime for kids), Kamen no Maid Guy and One Outs. In short, they're very flexible, and many of their works are shonen.
I doubt that GAINAX picked up Medaka just because of the GAINAXing effect. I'm sure they''ve got something in mind that we should look forward to.
On another note, fix up your quotes.


Shaft may have been starting to get a bigger budget, starting from Bakemono, but if it's style changed, then the whole point of Shaft would be gone, hence the phrase "Because it's SHAFT". Shaft became good and well known BECAUSE of that unacceptable budget which forced them to create a style that is, now, either hated or loved. However, it is still better for darker anime. Unless it has a change of director.

Kamen no Maid guy was terrible for everything other then comedy.
Maple story was also terrible.
Haven't watched BECK and one outs though.

Don't assume that just because it has experience in a genre that it'll become good in the future.


Shaft is able to strike a balance between having a high budget and still being, well, Shaft. And even at the beginning, I sordidly noted that Shaft would be unsuitable for Medaka; I just wanted to see what low-budget Shaft would do to it.
I'm amazed you watched Maple Story. But continuing on, the fact that it has experience before in that genre is what allows it to create a better work. Madhouse knows what works and what doesn't, when it comes to shonen. Sure, some of their works might be laughed off as convulted or childish by otaku, but they have the greatest potential to bring Medaka Box the most views, which is the ultimate goal of anime.

I watched the OPENING of Maplestory.

What I'm talking about is that both Madhouse's and J.C. Staff''s style of art and drawing will not fit Medaka. They both have a very plain drawing style, in my opinon. What I mean is that it looks like they have Characters on top of the background, which it is, but it doesn't look too great. The animation isn't very smooth either, in quite a lot of their anime.

E.g. Needless, when comapared to TTGL. The reason why TTGL looked so great is that too much stuff happened on screen, at the same time, i.e. the 22000 frames meme. In Needless, they had very good looking action scenes (really only at the end) but if you watch carefully, they aren't very smooth. I'm sure you've also seen it in Shaft, where they have very smooth and somehow very good looking areas of their action scenes. e.g. Bakemono when Araragi gets his guts ripped out, or 1st episode Arakawa season 2, where the Mayor starts sprinting in the beginning of the Marathon.

Both these companies are very good because of three main things, that being
1. Unique style,
2. Smooth movements with character actions, and
3. Good integration of characters onto the backgrounds.

The best thing Madhouse has made, in terms of quality, is Deathnote and Mouryo no Hako, and the genre the two are in aren't even close to Medaka.

I rank things by how many times I could watch the same scene over and over again without being bored. With TTGL, Bakemono, FLCL, and Madoka, I could watch several of it's scenes )THROUGHOUT THE SERIES) again and again without being bored. And I'm not talking about Ecchi scenes.

With Shana, Zero, and stuff like that, they were only rewatchable at max, 2 times. And that's only at the final scenes.

AGAIN, Needless was only good when they cut the Ecchi out of it and started focusing on action.

Notice how both sides of the argument have actually changed their views during the course of the argument. Two very quick examples:

FalseFallacy -
"I would prefer if Madhouse of J.C Staff did Medaka Box instead of GAINAX."

His "preference" becomes a sure-fire statement.

"Madhouse knows what works... have the greatest potential to bring Medaka Box the most views, which is the ultimate goal of anime."

SkylarkAnime -

"Yes, as said above, you are all underestimating Gainax."

HIs preference and support for Gainax turns into flaming the other two companies.

"What I'm talking about is that both Madhouse's and J.C. Staff''s style of art and drawing will not fit Medaka."

By taking notice of these things, the refusal to lose is obvious in both parties, both strengthening their statements by changing what they originally thought and wanted to convey.

Gainax always have a bad habit of abusing the Boobs of Steel trope. Well, I guess Gainax didn't earned the gainaxing trope for nothing.


TvTropes addiction? Join the crowd.

As for this, I've never even heard of Medaka Box until now. Could be good, who knows?

2012 jokes, anyone?
