    The entire series is like that? Besides the 3 main children, nobody is developed anyway, you are asking too much from the series. You cannot teach an old dog new tricks.

    I thought that Kimetsu surpassed Gintama long ago, but I think I overestimated it. Surpass Gintama is symbol of adulthood, it is still just a child.

    Not sure if any of you guys have been keeping up with series but the anime has been adapting 2-3 chapters per episode. That's no different than Naruto or Bleach.

    TPN is just a puppy. I need to have hope.
    Kimetsu was very fast-paced in the beginning, but the author learned and improved.

    No. I think you underestimated Gintama more so than you overestimated Kimetsu. Also, why/how is surpassing Gintama a sign of adulthood? Yes, Kimetsu is a child but it will enter adulthood once the anime arrives.

    Gintama/Kimetsu are completely different series and I doubt Kimetsu will reach Gintama's peak in manga sales, forget franchise success since it's safe to say that Gintama is a rarity in that aspect and expecting other series to come close or surpass it is wishful thinking.

    About Black Clover anime, production-wise it's dead at this point but we'll have some good points of great animation here and there. Not the series but the production itself it's really fucked. But about the results with the anime with income for Pierrot and the committee, we'll have to wait to see. It's too soon to say otherwise but of course, the anime isn't an Naruto.

    Also, Pierrot is investing much more in Boruto and Osomatsu-san right now in it's staff compared to Black Clover so there's another reason.

    It was a Line poll and the results were in one of the covers; the main 3, nameless old man and Phil were the top 5.

    From what I remember, the staff is overworked with different projects and the outsourcing are also pretty demanded but I'm not too sure right now.

    The anime is severely understaffed. I remember.seeing the director trying to recruit animators on Twitter because his main team was busy with Fate/Apocrypha. Besides that, it didn't even have a good pre-production considering the core staff is the same as Twin Star Exorcist which ended.6 months before Black Clover started. For a series with 50 episodes, you need MUCH more time than that before your show starts.

    As already mentioned, the pacing was slow only at the beginning, now the episodes cover two chapters at a time. To put it all we are at episode 23 and the events of the manga are those of chapter 31.


    Is both a strong point (since no time is wasted) that of weakness (often do not leave the fear due to deepen certain characters).

    However for the last time, we do not clog the topic. There is an entire section where you can complain.

    One Piece is the only one that has not lowered XD

    Of course it must be frustrating to debut in the same month that comes out of a small volume of One Piece, you always get the crumbs.

    Even if the anime does get a entire slew of new animators, even under the most optimistic of circumstances, realistically what will it change? Even if the show does develop a reputation of pumping out great animation consistently, it'll be difficult to overcome the memetically infamous first impressions Pierrot made to say the least.

    In my opinion, while a good story can cover up the cracks of bad animation, it is much more difficult for good animation to cover up bad stories. Especially if one is taking into account the rigors of working on animation of long running projects like this.
