Hi
So I'm not talking about those anime you get 13-22 episode per year
I'm talking abpout anime like Pokemon, Naruto, One Piece, Fairy Tail and such
Anime that releases an episode every week (about 50 weeks a year)
How the hell are they made?
I mean, animation, dubbing, and for filler/pokemon anime, scenario, all that in a single week?
It's hard to believe:S

Can someone tell me how are they made?
thanks

Think of how soap operas produce an episode each day, so that shows you how writing, direction, acting etc. can all be done in one day. The animation takes longer but that's where animation trickery comes in handy.

Also, the drawing quality is shit.

Okay, I agree, you have to look for these things but you don't have to look very hard. It's very easy to cut corners in animation so they cut every corner they can find. Including half-assing anything that appears in frame for less than a second, or anything that's moving because each frame takes 1/17th of a second so people won't notice if it's wonky.

I'd add too they're produced by institutions, they have big company deals and backing. Dragon Ball for example is handled by Toei Animation, a staple of Japanese animated stuff for over 50 years, 60 even? They have the money, they don't necessarily have the time, as Super and even DBZ can attest to. Well oiled machines too, the weekly anime running now have done so for at least a decade, and probably had it rough the first few months, formative years, but eventually go into a spell. Maybe there should be a documentary on it, I'm just going by observations more so than facts.

Speaking of weekly anime...Berserk since 2016?

If you can pull off the blissfully ignorant on cheap animations bit then I highly encourage you not to train yourself to spot such flaws.

As a start though.
You know you are watching a cheap animation when in a crowd nobody but the main character(s) move.

The "faceless background crowd" is such a staple of anime, poking fun at it is now a running gag among animators.

Think of it this way.
Day 1 - Animate after reviewing script.
Day 2 - Audio.
Day 3 - Muxing.
Day 4 - Create New Script.
Day 5 to 7 - Vacation in the Bahamas.
Repeat week.

Also, Nintendo is a fucking god, and that's how Pokemon is good.

credit also goes to the creators of the manga that become these long running anime series. One Piece wouldn't be 824 episodes long if Eiichiro Oda weren't a relentless manga drawing machine. turning out a 24-ish page issue of comics each week is grueling, even with assistants, and these creators literally sacrifice their body, health, and sleep to create these series. not that the animators and studios don't deserve credit as well but don't forget the mangaka.
