The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 104
Chapter 104 .Phantom animation falls to the altar
According to incomplete statistics, within one hour after the broadcast of “Magic Girl Madoka Magica”, more than 200,000 users watched the animation, while the current number of paid members of Hatsune Danmaku Video Network is close to 300,000. .
This means that more than 70% of users watched “Magic Girl Madoka Magica” for the first time. On the one hand, it shows the stickiness of the website users, and on the other hand, it also reflects the relatively poor content of Hatsune Video Network.
The October long holiday soon ended, and people who went out to travel returned one after another, and the discussion about “Magic Girl Madoka Magica” gradually heated up.
In the animation area of the a2 forum, in the special building of “Magic Girl Madoka Magica”, there are already ten pages of replies.
[Yaoniming3oo]: Exquisite paintings and delicate performances, distinctive music and powerful battle scenes, but the plot is slightly routine. To be honest, I think the advantages of this animation should be placed in another combat animation. There is no problem with the impact of the annual animation. However, the barren and old-fashioned plot drags it down, which is a pity.
[No. 11 bus]: I didn’t have any emotional fluctuations during the first episode. Although the paintings are good, the plot is hard to describe in a word. In what age is there such an old-fashioned plot?
[Story of the wind]: I said a long time ago that now is not the hot era of magical girls, and the end of going against the trend is going to the street.
[The Goose of the Golden Age]: I compared the data of the October file animation. For the sake of fairness, I chose the data 24 hours after the broadcast. “Wolf and Cat” has 3.2 million hits. “My Hero Family 2” has 1.9 million views, “Qingqiu Friends Book 2” has 1.8 million views, and “Magic Girl Madoka” has only 800,000 views in 24 hours. Less than one million, using data to speak, I think this animation is not considered an excellent work in October.
[Four-leaf clover under the rain]: No, the number of clicks across websites can be compared like this? Why don’t you say that “Wolf and Cat” got a full station pop-up on Tomato Video, which has millions of registered users, and “Magic Girl Madoka Magica” is only broadcast on the Hatsune Video Network, which has just been established less than a month ago.
[Wind, Rain and Mist]: Although I like “Soul Eater: Zero” and “Unnatural Death”, the quality of the finished product of “Magic Girl Madoka Magica” still makes me feel a little disappointed. Perhaps I have always had the impression of Phantom Telecom. It is wrong, Xu Rui is not a genius director.
[Jade op7954]: Although I haven’t watched this animation yet, I know this is a cliché magical girl animation after seeing your discussion. Thanks for minesweeper, so don’t waste time watching it.
[Starlight 321]: I think that Xiao Yan is too pretending, with a villain look on his face. I don’t understand why the screenwriter wants to add such a disgusting character to this relaxed and happy animation. I hope she will leave soon.
Generally speaking, the reviews are relatively negative. Although there are superb paintings and exquisite performances, for the audience who have already experienced many battles, the first episode of “Magic Girl Madoka Magica” still lacks a spark.
Chafan.com, a film and television scoring website under Tomato Video, has a score of 9.2 for the episode of “Wolf and Cat” directed by Wu Yi, while the score of “Magic Girl Madoka” is only 7.5. For comparison, the score of “Soul Eater: Zero” is 8.5 , “Unnatural Death” is 9.3.
Therefore, a voice gradually appeared on the Internet, that is, Xu Rui has fallen into the altar and is no longer able to compete for the position of the annual animation.
Xu Rui didn’t know how many navy elements were in this, and he didn’t care.
On October 10th, after the second episode of “Wolf and Cat” was broadcast, the phantom animation ushered in a visitor.
Wearing hole shoes, T-shirt and jeans, Wu Yi looked like a middle-aged uncle who came out for a walk and walked the dog. He came downstairs to the headquarters of Phantom Animation.
After Xu Rui learned the news, he quickly packed up his work and invited Wu Yi upstairs.
The newcomers in the original painting group all looked at the strongest director of the new generation with some curiosity. Wu Yi looked around and said casually.
“I have invited you to dinner as agreed, are you free now?”
Xu Rui thought for a moment, then nodded to answer.
“Of course, let’s eat outside.”
He got in a martial arts car, which was a civilian brand, cheap and practical.
“What do you want to eat? I used to go to a teppanyaki buffet, which tastes good, or steak western food?”
Wu Yi asked, like discussing with an old friend who has been with him for many years.
“Don’t worry about it, I know a good place.”
Xu Rui thought for a while and immediately showed the way.
Ten minutes later, Wu Yi’s car parked in the parking lot near Ningjiang University, and the two walked to the Shengjian shop on the backstreet of the school.
Wu Yi was stunned. He didn’t expect Xu Rui to be so grounded. He then sat down and looked at the menu and ordered two pan-fried dumplings.
Xu Rui went out after greeting and bought some common snacks, burritos, fruit porridge, fried skewers, and small wontons. It was no different from the college students who came here to settle lunch at this time.
The two separated the food tacitly and took apart the disposable chopsticks.
“Hmm, it tastes good.”
Wu Yi picked up a fried dumpling, dipped it in vinegar and put it in his mouth, nodding repeatedly.
After eating for a while, Wu Yi put down his chopsticks a bit.
“I watched the first episode of “Magic Girl Madoka Magica”. It was indeed a superb production. Even for my team, it would take a while to reach such a level.”
Not knowing whether he was complimenting Xu Rui or himself, Wu Yi took a bite of fruit porridge and continued.
“However, according to the current level, “Magic Girl Madoka Magica” is at most similar to “Soul Eater: Zero”. I don’t think Xu Rui who can make those animations is just this kind of person. Do you still have Reserved?”
Xu Rui smiled when Wu Yi asked.
“I don’t like spoilers.”
Xu Rui’s words caused Wu Yi to notice his own gaffe. In this case, it is not appropriate to ask the director about the subsequent plot. However, the current state of “Magic Girl Madoka Magica” is really not optimistic.
“Xu Rui, do you think there are any directors in the industry that can be regarded as famous?”
Xu Rui didn’t understand, but still thought about answering for a moment.
“Director Li Xiuming won the annual animation award three times, and he is considered a master.”
“Li Xiuming hasn’t had a new work for ten years. If I go back ten years ago, let alone three annual animations, even ten will be fine.”
Wu Yi said with a small smile.
“Director Steven from Neverland? Every animated film he has earned a very high box office.”
Xu Rui said again.
“Relying on the capital behind it, spending money to make a full cg animation for women and children Shi Siwen can succeed in changing my position to my grandmother.”
“How about Tang Ming, who loves craftsmanship? He is experienced, and his original “My Hero Family” has achieved outstanding results.”
“”My Hero Family” will definitely collapse this season. The combat power and settings are no longer what Tang Ming can control.”
“Shi Yang of Mushroom Screening? He is considered to have won the annual animation award in the relatively stable quality of his works.”
“Shi Yang is just a pseudo-author who can only copy the mirror of the original work. If he is also considered a master, then the industry is really going to end.”
Xu Rui shrugged. He has counted the good directors, but they have all been refuted by Wu Yi.
Seeing Xu Rui’s slightly confused appearance, Wu Yi smiled. He pointed at Xu Rui and then at himself.
“Nowadays, the industry is regarded as a famous director, probably only you and I can be regarded as such.”
