Minami-ke Okaeri Drawing Fail


Although the response to baka yarou anime Minami-ke Okaeri’s first episode was cautiously optimistic, despite a disastrous blunder, nobody can help but notice the less than first rate animation and character design, or Asread quality as it has come to be known. Merciless 2ch gathers the oddest above.

With all these from but one episode, we might wonder if the anime is looking to qualify for the fail gallery, and given the usual progression of quality we see in anime, we have to wonder whether the worst is yet to come…

    This level of animation quality is not bad. srsly. Instead, it's very entertaining and enjoyable to watch

    As long as I find this season to be comical, I honestly won't care for the QUALITY. I never watched Minami-ke for good designs, or good animation to begin with.

    All the same, they must fix those mistakes in the DVDs (or much preferably on future episodes).

    totally disaster, the characters look worse than ever. I've been bothered since S2.

    just watched this episode... GOD!!!.. visually speaking it simply sucks, while season 2 is worse than season 1, mainly it only felt "different" but this season is so bad...

    1. essentially still images being panned in different directions
    2. very basic animation (eyes movements, head turning)
    3. really odd faces, and it's not just sometimes, it's constant and in every character, sometimes even proportions are wrong, and to add more to the fail boat, look at this image: http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l230/kebrus/fail.png
    4. because the faces are so bad, and the animations so few some things like the "water-drop-shape" mouth that we all knew is constantly present, while in season 1 that only happens in order to be funny in season 3 they are constantly with that stupid expression on their faces, while previously was fun now is just stupid and annoying
    5. one thing i remember from the first season (and even from the second) is that i was constantly really laughing out loud, with this season while it does have some funny moments, it's just not laughable, and most of the time predictable... i'm hoping this is something from this episode alone..

    i'm really disappointed

    So I just tried to watch Ep 1...

    And I get the feeling I'd be better off with an audio-only with Subs rendition...

    Maybe the studio is trying to go for a CD- ddrama style...though if so, I wonder why bother with the animation side of things...

    S1 was great...

    S2 had issues, but at least it was watchable from an Animation viewpoint, and still entertaining for content...As another post mentions, it just felt different compared to one. (While I give it that, I still don't like how MUCH it was changed from S1 to S2...)

    S3...Why...? Even Crescent Love (Or "Cabbage Love" as it got known as later...Those who have seen the series in question will get the reference quickly. I'm too lazy to look up and type out the whole title right now...) started out with decent animation quality before dropping (And even then, I'm not sure it dropped to as much as a low as Minami-ke S3 seems to have hit in the first ep...)

    It makes my eyes hurt...

    Only other anime I've seen to date that has this much of a horrendous animation sequence was SHUFFLE! It's latter eps had some HORRIBLY animated sections. (You can practically tell which scenes were handlesd by different in-betweener studios.) aslead/asread seems to have had a hand in taht series too, according to ANN.



    Series needs to be given back to Doumo, if at least for animation handling and production. S3's gonna have to be DAMN funny if it's to make me get over the visuals...

    +1 for no black faces
    -1000 for failures like this

    +10000 for it being minami-ke, so I'll still watch

    Honestly, the animation quality is pretty half-assed. Those of you who support it by saying "it's just fine" either have really low standards, or you also half-ass everything in your life.

    Unless they do some major overhauling for the DVD's, I wouldn't consider it worth buying at all.

    Least the overall style looks better than Kyo no Go no Ni.

    I could almost put up with it.

    Actually, I'm way more concerned about the directing style.

    Season 1 was genius; everything was timed pretty well for hilarity purposes, and the musical stings seem to be in all the right places. And the last episode was glorious. I sense the director's passion.

    I'm only a few episodes into the second, but this seems more obligatory. But where's the humor? I guess it's there, but its presentation takes away the effect of the humor.

    I might finish seasons 2 and 3; if I do, it might only be on obligation rather than passion, so to speak. But I would only show season 1 to my friends.

    I think we should consider whether or not the animators are doing this on purpose. Just think back to the whole Rozen Maiden-ish eye rolling in the Okawari opening. They REALLY like to fuck with characters' eyes. They may even know about the bad drawing meme and throw that in there from time to time, sort of like how they constantly do :{)

    I just watched the first episode of season three and season one back to back. Quite a marked decline, but as others have said as long as there's that unmistakable Minami-ke-ness to it I'll keep watching.

    So how in the hell did Aslead get rights to the third season, anyway? You'd figure they would learn their lesson after the hypothetical season two, but I guess they are determined to end Minami-ke with an even greater split between season one fans and season two/three fans.

    This poor poor series...
    Such a slating from so called fans and tbh honest, it's not even that bad in terms of animation, especially for a show which obviously has a fairly low/modest budget to work with.

    A low budget isn't an excuse for bad animation.

    i just started to watch minami first season, and i can tell u that that the first season looks undoubtedly better. this looks like it was made in a sweat shop by hundreds of little kids.

    The first season had a different company producing it. That's why there's such a huge difference in quality.

    Minami-ke has only 1 season. The supposed 2nd season was just a weird dream. The 3rd season is starting to be like that dream where your in school with just your rocketship underwear.

    You guys need to stop being asses and wailing on Minami-ke like this. It's not that bad. Season 1 was great, and I'm watching season 2 (inb4 LOLOL THERE WAZ A SEASON 2?) and I'm loving every moment of it. Okaeri will be just as great.

    Stop being little kids for god sakes. They'll most likely fix it for the DVD release. Jesus christ.

    haha i wish they could fix the ENTIRE animation for dvd releases. I'll still watch this, because I watched season 2 and enjoyed the minami-keness of it all, but I don't blame the people who only see season 1. It just looks so much better
