Studios make some flops every now and then, that's just how it is. They can't be perfect all the time.

Ninja Slayer is lolworthy, but that shouldn't make you like them any less. It's just a bump in the road.

Little Witch Academia 2 is in the works so get stoked for that. That will be pure Trigger goodness.

The real problem with Ninja Slayer isn't its low-budget animation. Rather, the fact is that it wasn't at all advertised to be the Inferno Cop-style show it actually is.


Definitely. Their marketing was very misleading.

Trigger probably had little to no say in the marketing. Plus wouldn't be the first time a show's PVs only focused on action bits to make the show look vastly different than it really was(just look at The Rolling Girls from last season..... ).

Aren't they still working on Little Witch Academia 2? I don't blame them if Studio Trigger is trying to stay relevant with such a small budget. I don't have a huge problem with their small budget either. I actually like Ninja Slayer so far, really stupid, but still entertaining.

^ They have some talented artists, not just Sushio. Trigger was Gainax's talent, which is probably why it took Gainax so long to produce anything after their departure.

I'm a fan of artists, not studios, as well. I don't worship the ground of any studio but I do respect certain animators for being really good at what they do.

You're not going to like everything a studio makes. Being creative requires taking risks: sometimes it works other times it doesn't. Whether you like it or not is just down to your own tastes. Like another guy said in the thread, my problem with Ninja Slayer is more based on how they marketed the show.

I should've known there would be plebs who dislike Ninja Slayer. I'm absolutely baffled at the fact that some of you people seem to dislike Inferno Cop as well. Sometimes the Internet disgusts me.

Maybe none of you know this, but the ONA isn't Ninja Slayer's final project. The TV animation is set to air next year. This is just a web show. Calm down. The flash animation is hilarious, especially when it switches to traditional animation is the middle of a scene. The over-the-top, cliched "NINJA" tone is just stupid enough to be funny without going into outright retarded territory. It's much better than Inou-Battle was.

Recite your death haiku.

Inferno Cop was an experiment (useless on its own from a business perspective). Ninja Slayer takes on the results of that experiment and attempts to make money in the process.

It's also important to realize that Trigger is Trigger and not Gainax. They're a stronger reflection of Imaishi and Otsuka, who represented only one wing of Gainax.

I considered watching Ninja Slayer but I decided not to because I'm busy with school. But from reading various opinions (good and bad) about the show, I'm glad I made that choice because I wasn't a fan of Inferno Cop. I also didn't like Inou Battle. Those shows were just not my cup of tea.

I like Kill la Kill and Little Witch Academia though.

You can't like everything a studio or individual puts out. For example, I'm a Disney fan but there are some films from them that I don't like.

.


But what's airing on TV will just be exactly what's streaming now. I've seen a few people say that when Ninja Slayer airs on TV later it will be a fully animated show, but nowhere have I ever seen that information from actual announcements.

Domo

I agree with you on Inou Battle. While I thought it was a reasonably good show, I'm enjoying Ninja Slayer A LOT more. And unlike Inou Battle, I'm not disliking anything about it either.

Hate to break this to you though: we're a very small club

If you asked me, Ninja Slayer is just about as unanime an anime could possibly get. It feels more like something out of Adult Swim than it does an anime show. Trigger is known for doing a lot of crazy things and some of it works like in Kill la Kill, while for others it bombs terribly. Moving stills isn't what I had in mind when watching this show.

What other studios do is irrelevant to this thread.
