Norio Matsumoto MAD

this is amazing and anybody who is a fan of the incredible smoothness and flexibility of Matsumoto’s animation work will enjoy this collection of things he’s been involved with

Matsumoto was my MAIN DUDE back when I was a lil kid. I must have watched his Naruto episodes 100 times a piece. I love this!!

AKA this is the really awesome animator that people bitch about on Naruto. There’s so many people that know nothing about animation that like to be all “omg he’s terrible look at this awful animation!” and use a still screenshot of a smear or in between where the characters look weird 


I think it’s funny when people complain about how “bad” his stuff looks when looking at smears in his animation, considering the fact that squashes, stretches, and smears are found in all types of animation, Eastern and Western.

I know I’ve seen a few posts with funny smears and stuff from Disney movies and stuff, but people tend to laugh at those more than bitch straight on like they seem to do with the stills I’ve seen from Matsumoto’s work.

I wonder if it’s because of the different methods used between Western and Eastern animation.

Western animation tends to break up a sequence into phases - having a keyframe animator do the main poses and then having another animator do the frames inbetween (you know the inbetween animator). This isn’t necessarily true for effects animation, as that’s usually done straight-forward, frame-by-frame, but we’re talking character animation here. 

In Eastern animation, sequences are instead given to one animator, who does all the keyframes and inbetweens by themselves.

Because of that, you can pinpoint one animator for an anime sequence to blame for “bad” animation. With like… Disney stuff, where people seem to just laugh at funny blur frames like “lol Aladdin’s face”, people don’t have a specific person to blame. Usually for sequences like that, people only know the Key Animator and only know of their super awesome keyframe drawings. Glen Keane keeps coming to mind, cause everyone loves to look at his keyframes for like Ariel and whatnot, but no one ever mentions the people who inbetweened the lovely drawings seen by such people.

ANYWAY, enough of my “I-just-woke-up-art-rant”

Long story short, Matsumoto’s stuff is amazing and all the sequences here are just stellar.
