Suggestion: Thanking The Viewer get usage counts

 1 a Ninja With AIDS, Sat, 22nd Mar '14 8:11:31 PM from Nanairogaoka Relationship Status: Armed with the Power of Love
I would like to suggest this picture from Kotoura-san (Dimensions: 491 x 323, File Size: 349 KB). I'm sorry that I can't make the image any smaller because much of the quality would be lost, especially when it comes to the letters. If you find this to be a good image and would like to try a different cropping yourself, here is the unedited version (Dimensions: 1920 x 1080, File Size: 3.25 MB).

P.S. I am hosting these files on my own Imgur. I can and will remove them at any time when it's deemed necessary. Edit: The links should work now.

I feel that this image demonstrates the trope because the Japanesse font from the original production is still there which means the Fansub is clearly a reitteration and not just a tacked-on line. There are several other details that help the message's closure too:

  • The background scenery of Cherry Blossoms which has a symbolism for death. In this case, the end of a series.
  • The characters' expressions seem like a Good Ending at the least.
  • Also, notice the girl in the middle (the one with the orange hair) and how nearly everybody else is looking at her? It kinda makes you feel like she's some Audience Surrogate, doesn't it?
    • If yes, then does that make the personal address to the viewership a bit more potent for you?

Let me know what you think.

I think I'm not allowed to view these files. Change your view permissions or use another service. Also, please, please please input the article title in CamelCase or it WILL NOT WORK. I'm sorry, but it is really annoying to have to keep saying this to people unfamiliar with these threads.

Sorry about that. I'm still very new to Image Pickin' and Dropbox. New public links for the cropped version and original version.

Edit: They are hosted on Imgur this time, so the links should work now.

I don't blame you. I blame the system for not informing you. There was no way you would have known that. It just gets so frustrating to have to keep informing newbies about this. Anyway, they links still don't work.

[up] That's odd. My last Image Pickin session worked fine with Dropbox. Imgur it is. I just need to register and post the pics. One moment please.

Edit: [up] Done! The links should be fuctional. If not, you won't be the only one annoyed here.

Not bad, but I'd prefer if we can have the characters look into the camera (and, by extension, the viewer) instead of at each other, to make it more explicit that the dialogue is meant to address the viewer and not the characters themselves.

 7 a Ninja With AIDS, Sat, 22nd Mar '14 11:23:42 PM from Nanairogaoka Relationship Status: Armed with the Power of Love
[up] Thanks, but perhaps you have or know of an example of that? Also, would you consider my suggestion Keep Until Better Image Suggested just in case we never get another example?

[up]The Anime & Manga example section have this image linked. Probably better since the "Thank You" note is more obviously addressed to the viewer and not a dialogue from one of the characters

 9 a Ninja With AIDS, Sun, 23rd Mar '14 12:05:05 AM from Nanairogaoka Relationship Status: Armed with the Power of Love
[up] True, but my major issue with that is the letters are very transparent and blend in with the image too much. I don't want page visitors to squint to see it when we go to reduce the file size.

Addendum: My proiorty when picturing this trope is that both the message and sense of closure are clear. Having the characters Aside Glance or something helps, but it's secondary.

The image would be better if the people in it would look at us.

 11 a Ninja With AIDS, Sun, 23rd Mar '14 3:37:59 AM from Nanairogaoka Relationship Status: Armed with the Power of Love
[up] As I've just said, the Aside Glances would be nice, I just think presenting a clear message and overall sense of closure is more important. Whether you think it does or not, I'll ask this one more time: Keep Until Better Image Suggested?

Addendum: In fact, I will suggest something arguably better: this image from DokiDoki! Precure (Dimensions: 428 x 235, File Size: 185 KB), and the original, more or less note  (Dimensions: 1500 x 785, File Size: 1.38 MB). I'll point out a few things why this might win over the other despite the whitewash:

  • It's a pastel frame that gives a definite sense of closure, even to someone that hasn't seen the show before.
  • The message itself is clear along with the original Japanesse writting. Bonus Points for at least looking handwritten!
  • The characters are all looking at the viewers (Us) like you have been wanting.

Well, it's an improvement to your previous suggestion, so I'd be OK with it.

That said, I found this while looking for alternative suggestions earlier, so might as well throw it in.

[up][up]The trouble is, TV Tropes has a maximum width of 300, and is, therefore, 128 pixels too wide.

(No problem with the height, though.)

[up] Would be less ambiguous if we know what they're saying in English instead of Japanese, as it can be interpreted as them speaking to someone behind the camera, or the camera's first person. (Admittedly, the latter's far-fetched.)

350 pixels width, actually.

 15 Rethkir, Sun, 23rd Mar '14 1:53:34 PM from the gap between dimensions Relationship Status: Singularity
Any image can be downsized to 350 easily. It's usually not an issue.

 16 a Ninja With AIDS, Sun, 23rd Mar '14 2:19:08 PM from Nanairogaoka Relationship Status: Armed with the Power of Love
[up] The problem with downsizing too much is that the letters' quality might become a cluster hell and be illegible, thus ruining its value as an image. Hence why I'm afraid to go the 350 pixel width.

If you're a photoshop wizard and want to try downsizing from the original, please do.

Edit: I made my own attempt of the 350 pixel width anyway. I hope the letters don't look too terrible to you.

How's this version of that? I cropped off as much of the white as I could so the actual pic would be a bit larger.

I think it works well.

No, the other one.
[up]A bit low on the quality. Also, the link doesn't work due to an extra space at the comma.
