Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai key visual

COMMENTS

  • Hidden2147

    I cried reading the light novel.

    I can't wait for this to potentially make me cry again.

  • eldar666
    16 points Jan 14,2018, 12:42pm

    The story was first posted on narou as a web novel but removed shortly after, as the Japanese publisher Futabasha picked it up. What is interesting though, is that contrary to the popular belief, "Kimi no suizou wo tabetai" is not a light novel. It was published in a non-lightnovel label of Futabasha which means that it is just a regular novel.

    Later the novel was adapted into a manga and a live action movie, and both did well in Japan I believe. As for the novel itself, it is a bestseller with more than a million copies sold, and several awards won. That is a great accomplishment coming from an amateur author. I believe this is Yoru Sumino's first novel.

    I have read the novel and the manga adaptation, and loved them. This is the movie I am most hyped up about in 2018.

I believe this is Yoru Sumino's first novel.

    I have read the novel and the manga adaptation, and loved them. This is the movie I am most hyped up about in 2018.

    It seems that their official Twitter and Instagram has announced that it will be a Fall 2018 release... if Twitter's translation did not fail me.

    Would be great if anyone can confirm.

    No that fucking ruins it. You completely washed out the background removing all the details. The building on the left side is completely gone. You think anime should only show characters and have no background art?? You need to shift the dynamic range, not mess with the contrast.

    I did some experimenting to test if there was any dynamic range compression in the video itself. The max values are 254,254,254 and min is 0,0,0. So there is no compression. The "grey coloring" is intentional by kyoto animation themselves. Attempting to remove it messes with the intended viewing experience that Kyoto Animation is trying to present. You should NOT try to change it. If you do, like OP, you will be removing some of the anime itself.

    Some suggestions to help your viewing experience.

    • Turn up the backlight brightness if you have a LED LCD or regular (TFT) LCD display. (Do not change the non-backlight brightness or contrast unless suggested as part of display calibration!)
    • Calibrate your display so it makes use of the full color range your TV/monitor supports.
    • Buy a new monitor that's an S-IPS LCD or an OLED for proper color representation. DO NOT BUY TFT LCD DISPLAYS!

  • Gamerunglued
    9 points Jan 11,2018, 12:44pm

    The original works so much better in context though. The modded shot looks depressing and the dark background makes Violet appear isolated. The actual shot feels more gentle (for lack of a better word) because she and Gilbert are walking through a lively market together and the gem she finds looks magical to her, but she doesn't understand the feeling she gets at the time, outside of war. The modded shot would work well if Violet felt alone and isolated in that scene.

    On their own I think both are gorgeous though, which I think about the show as a whole so far.

    I think you overcompensated a bit, but it does show the problem with the original well.

    I did a similar thing for another scene where I still tried to keep the bright style of the original but tone it down a bit. Still doesn't look great because it's difficult to balance, but at least to me the fixed version looks a lot less foggy and bright.

    The issue is that Kyoani loves their filters. The base (ie the detail in the drawings + animations + whatever) are fantastic, but they have a habit of damaging the final product by going too heavily on the post fx. See also: the headache inducing levels of chromatic aberration in Eupho.

    It's why some of their best looking anime are the simple style ones such as maid dragon and Nichijou IMO.

    Yeah, that's what I also did when I first found the brightness+contrast+saturation sliders. I'd think adding contrast made any picture better. A bit like how most people just crank up the bass when using an equalizer for the first time. Over time I realized that while it makes things intense, it takes out balance crushes out detail and makes everything the same.

    I learned that different color balance can be used for artistic purposes and that music are mixed with different EQ balance not because the producer is shit but because that's how it's intended to sound - which is not always the same bass and treble U-shape.

  • Batmanhasgame

    jesus christ people here can't admit KyoAni can do any single thing wrong.

    you overdid it a bit imo, but i would like the filter to be less intense

    Hah.

    A few months ago I had some dork barking at me because I used filtering and contrast settings to watch my animu. He said that I was destroying any information shown that it was meant for the viewer to be appreciated like that.

    Who's laughing now?

    edit: Apparently that same dork is still stalking and downvoting me. Nothing gives me more pride than having a butthurt stalker.
