I have not read the manga

I have not read enough manga to understand the sheer genius that Nanatsu no taizai carries and continues to develop

I don't understand that some manga are so great that people will suffer through a shitty a1 pictures adaption just to enjoy just a little more of the magic in a series

they are good drawings, probably too detailed for the budget. i think they went a little overboard on the hair

i can understand why you'd find hand shakers endearing, i'm just explaining why i think it's getting collectively dumped on. and YoI benefits from one of the major problems because of their dichotomy - YoI looks good to the untrained eye when it's moving, which is how you're supposed to view it - but it looks hilariously bad when it's picked apart frame by frame. Hand Shakers has the opposite problem, and because of that it's never gonna get the same pass as something like YoI.

i'm sure harry potter is successful for a reason, i'm just saying i have no frame of reference for it. i just think it's dangerous to tread into rules too much at the risk of a trigger anime drowning in expository dialogue about how everything works so people can poke holes in it - and i don't think they'd be good at it, either. i see what you're saying about the convenient plot device in the first episode, which made an appearance in the 2nd ONA as well when Akko wanted it and got it because reasons. granted i think the 1st LWA production is better than that one, but i always thought that LWA would work better in a tv series format, so here we are and we're about to find out.

YoI doesn't get as much hate because it's not so ridiculously abstract. YoI is easily digestible fujoshibait with an animation technique that normies think is amazing. long story short YoI plays it safe. just look at the joke of an awards ceremony crunchyroll put up for 2016, where YoI swept almost every category it was in, including best OP, which was just the same 10 seconds of rotoscoped footage on loop; and best animation, which is so sloppy it has its own twitter for bad drawings. so while YoI has problems, it's still sensibly structured, which lends to its success.

Hand Shakers on the other hand is a non-stop parade of mistakes right out of the gate - an almost headache-inducing trainwreck with so many production problems it's a miracle we are witnessing it being broadcast. every artistic choice they made is so bizarre it feels like nobody was on the same page, did their own thing and then they slapped it together hoping it would work. i wish i could have been a fly on the wall in the studio while this disasterpiece was being created to see how it happened. perhaps they were trying to be ambitious and try something new. whatever they did, it failed spectacularly. but i can at least give them credit for trying.

Hand Shakers and YoI do have one other thing in common besides bad animation, though - everything fucking sparkles.

when i mentioned akiba's trip i was talking about the way the characters are written, not their designs. although i found everything in the show to be pretty forgettable aside from the glowy stripe they get when they become a vampire zombie hunter person. i get that akiba's trip is unapolagetic, but like other shows in the same vein (looking at you konosuba) i just can't get into it because it still feels too samey.

i'd give LWA some time to mature. i never read any HP books or movies - well i saw one but i had no idea wtf was going on, the point is i have no attachment to it. so for me i can't say anything about the comparison. but i will say witches and magic were common themes in anime before harry potter exploded, and that i don't think that LWA has ever been very self-conscious about establishing rules in its universe because they never seemed that important to their stories. not every writer can be as thorough as yoshihiro togashi and get away with it. it also doesn't seem very trigger-like when you look at their staffers' history. TTGL, KLK, P&SWG, all these fictional worlds are so loose with their inner workings and themes, but i think they get away with it because of how overtly whimsical they are. that not everyone can accept a fictional world that runs on pure willpower i can understand, but at least they don't pretend it isn't anything else.

I'll concede to claims of degeneracy but will also ride to battle in defense of my favs. The art in Hand Holders and Akiba Strip in particular is fuggin gorgeous to my philistine layman eyes (though the sakuga in AT is at several points terrible to the point of possibly intentional hilarity and Hand Holders often seems to falls apart in motion). Even so, am I wrong to think these shows look ;-;? Give it to me straight doc.
you're right about hand shakers in that when it starts moving everything falls apart. it looks great when it's paused, but the animation is super choppy and the camerawork is all over the place. it's a shame because GoHands is capable of doing great work, but i think they have given up too much of their traditional talent over to 3d novices who try to be too fancy with their work and don't know anything about composition and editing. even the best 2d animator can't make some of these ridiculous scenes work.

akiba's trip has some good sakuga. didn't care much for the story or characters though

Also hope you gave No Game No Rife a shot if you follow Madhouse so closely. I think I remember you doing so but not if the siscon pandering was bad enough to make you drop.

i watched 9 eps of NGNL. it's pretty but other than that i hated it. couldn't finish it. also the mangaka is a literal fraud and pedophile

And tbf what isn't degenerate this season aside from Rakugo, Gintama and Super Lovers?
LWA is pure. no pantsu allowed

How do you guys even pick what to watch?
in order of things i look for:
staff involved > studio making it > it looks or sounds interesting to me
 
like if one of my favorite directors or writers is on key staff, i would watch it no matter what

a show like ACCA 13 i picked up because madhouse is animating it. i didn't even read what it was about

then shows like youjo senki - the thumbnail looked interesting and the synopsis strange enough for me to watch it. also it's a new studio so i'm curious to see what they're capable of

also your taste in anime is degenerate but you already know that

i feel the movie falls apart  in the last 15 minutes with the titans. the whole thing feels rushed and the animation quality goes down. but it's not a bad movie. not bad enough to justify shooting you in the face with the gun that came out of my amazing rack.
