Okay, I think I get where the misunderstanding is; and this is a very common gripe I have when talking about anime…
The animation studio should only be held responsible for animation; and I strongly believe that. So if you are comparing the enjoyment of a series to another series mainly because it was made by the same studio, well… that just doesn’t make sense to me.
Sure, the director (Naoko Yamada) is KyoAni’s in-house so we can expect the same sort of voicing, screen panning, and overall “feel” as other KyoAni works, but the screenwriter (Reiko Yoshida) made a ton of non KyoAni stuff like Bakuman, Haruchika, Girls und Panzer among others. As such I expect the screenwriter to be more in charge of what actually happens and which dialogue and scenes to actually put into the anime and, based on her repertoire, I expect it to have a similar, yet different turn-of-events as compared to other KyoAni works. She wasn’t even involved in Hibike Euphonium
So when you say something like:
I just simply cannot agree because I haven’t liked any of KyoAni’s shows in the last, well, 5 years (can’t say 8 because of CLANNAD and nichijou) but I expect to like this movie. It might turn out shit, depending on the producer (which has not been announced as of yet), but I will keep track of it nonetheless.
