So I read all of the Birdy the Mighty Manga to its most recent update and decided to watch the anime.

The anime fucking sucks and the animation is mostly average. I wouldn't mind the average animation quality if they didn't keep trying to pass it off as good. Its what happens when you try to make something look good but it turns out you only have half the budget you need so its only half there. For example there was a scene where Birdy jumped from a ground area to a second story while twirling around and it looked like 5 frames of animation were stretched to cover for 3 seconds of screen time. It was just jerky and came off as unconvincing.

Why does this always happen with anime adaptations? Can anyone recommend me an anime adaptation that isn't garbage when compared to the source material? The only one I can think of is Full Metal Alchemist.

Okay I'm looking at it now and what I'm seeing is that its dot hack. But dot hack where people never seem to realize that Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games ARE ALWAYS A FUCKING BAD IDEA.

MC gets trapped in Sword Art Online, he beats it and escapes, his online and now real life girlfriend gets trapped in a game called Alfheim Online and the hero goes in and gets her out of it, he investigates Gun Gale Online because its involved in fucking murder and somehow laws don't ban VRMMOs at that point and now he's trapped in another goddamn game and has to escape it.

There's a point where you go past cyberpunk and submerge yourself into a world too stupid to live. Sword Art Online is one of those stories.

I think about MMORPG communities a lot, but I've never actually been part of one for more than like 20 minutes because, straight up, there are no meaningful consequences to anything.

The bonds formed don't mean anything, the actions don't correspond to any permanent gains or losses, etc.

It's a show full of optimism and how people are at their best when the situation they find themselves in is the worst.

See, in the Japanese version, Toriyama writes the dialog in the Tsun family entirely in kanji to make them seem more Chinese.
So he uses the kanji for "Death" in place of desu, because the English translation of that sounds like desu.

The first couple volumes of SAO were clearly garbage. The writer got way better as he went on and it's obvious in episodes 3-10 or so that he knew what he was doing by then (those episodes come from later volumes) but he was still hobbled by a cliche trainwreck of a main character. Between that and all the stuff they cut, the writing quality of this whole season is very uneven, with an obvious drop after the last big time skip.

However... The mere fact that he took the completely retarded "TRAPPED IN AN MMO" premise and did something slightly believable with it nudges it back up to "mediocre" territory. And on top of that, between Yuki Kajiura's glorious music and the sheer fun of seeing evil dudes get romped by Kirito in unusually well choreographed fight scenes... I'm gonna have to admit, it's very watchable.

So, even though I hate it, I kinda like it. *shrug*

But I don't [i]want[/] incest and fairies. I mean, I think I might be seeing where they're going with this, but it's too dense. It's happening way too late in the story.

So there's some shit about MC being adopted and not told until he was like 10. It made him feel weird and like an outsider in his own family, so he turned to vidya.

There's room to turn this shit around with the flying motif and identity crisis theme going on, but why so late? Why this instead of all the questions about SA:O that need to be answered first? There are so many other things going on. Why this?
>> No. 80134
They're based on visual novels that were written out of order. Most of the first half (all those mini-arcs and side stories) was written after this part. The guy was a new writer and it shows.

They could have adapted everything in the same order he wrote it, but then they'd have a much weaker first season.

Just watched all of season 1 of Deadman Wonderland and both seasons of The Book of Bantorra.

Deadman Wonderland consistently seems like it falls short of "real horrorshow". All of its' stories could be really terrible, tragic tales with a few darker twists, but it never quite gets there. Which is odd, because on the surface, there's an almost comical amount of blood and death. I'm not saying it necessarily needs darker and edgier but for all the overt violence its' character driven stories seem a little tame.

The Books of Bantorra were surprisingly solid. Not the most stellar or original story, but the fights were very well animated. It actually does kind of achieve a point about knowledge of the past and books, but the ending lost sight of that for the ensemble "whoop the big bad" scene. I think Baccano! handled the ensemble cast a little better though.

Okay, take a look at those art and writing credits and tell me that isn't awesome...

It ended up kinda not being awesome...seriously Genghis Khan was secretly Japanese the whole time, and was the legendary Samurai Yoshitsune? I can't decide whether or not that's more racist than stupid. I kinda forgot that for all that I really like about Fist of the North Star that Ken's actually kinda flat as a character. Now I'm wondering if that isn't something Buronson just kinda has problems with.

>> No. 80324
The existence of programs that are essentially "ghosts" of dead players would have been a really interesting theme to set up early on and carry through with this reveal. There's a shitload of material earlier in the series they could have modified slightly towards that end, particularly Yui's own existence. Considering the rewrites they had to do anyway to make the adaptation work, they basically just missed their only opportunity to clean up the story.

It was always going to be a tough job. They got fucked eleven different ways trying to juggle fight scenes, continuity, fanservice, faithfulness to the source material, and serious time constraints. They dropped some of the balls. It's just a shame.

Admittedly those are not representative of uh...any genre in particular, but the anime I've seen so far has been mostly excellent in terms of antagonists. It's the poorly-written protagonists who are making me pissy, if anything. Why isn't as much characterization put into the leads?

Possibly, although I think I knew the term prior to knowing what anime was. "Stuffed animal" is just associated in my head with taxidermy for some reason. My sister is weird when it comes to anime and geeky stuff in general, she does enjoy it, and she begged me to buy her an Alphonse Elric UFO catcher plush and some Doctor Who pins at NYCC, but frowns at me whenever I get exuberant over something geeky, rolls her eyes at cosplay, and tries to discourage me from getting into anything "too geeky".

I finished reading Molester Man. Holy shit that was a good story.

>Why isn't as much characterization put into the leads?

A lot of Japanese entertainment is suffering from the same problem that happens everywhere else in the world: writers try too hard to make the main character relatable, so he ends up bland and uninteresting. Other characters get the right mix of 'interesting' and 'relatable' because writers aren't as worried about readers/viewers being able to project onto them. This has been happening in fiction for a while, and isn't likely to stop anytime soon. The best anime/manga have interesting main characters, just like how the best works anywhere in the world have interesting main characters.
>> No. 80649
Even anime aside, it's a rule of fiction that heroes are generally less interesting than villains. Villains act, heroes react.
>> No. 80650
Unless it's a story about a revolt or something (this is why these usually have better protagonists).
>> No. 80651
There are lots of exceptions, really. But in the classic "Hero/Villain" story, most of the plots are going to come down to "Villain has done X! Now the hero must Y to stop him!"

In a way, even a revolt is ultimately a reaction, though. The authority figures have finally crossed the line and now the heroes must fight back to reclaim their freedom/dignity/etc. Now if it's less a revolt and more a coup, like the heroes have received some sort of power and now they are going to use it to Take Over, that'd be more of a case of the Hero acting and the Villain reacting....but in most cases, that'd be a case of a villain protagonist anyway. Coups are rarely heroic actions when they're not done in reaction to oppression from the current regime.

I kind of liked the original Tenchi series. It was short (since it was an OAV) and the world building was interesting. The harem element didn't really do anything for me.

Tenchi Universe was all right, but I probably wouldn't have watched it if Toonami weren't making it take zero effort to do so--basically the same as the OAV, but more decompressed, and it added a sane member to the "harem," which was pretty lacking up until then. There were a couple of good episodes, like the Multiverse episodes including the one where Sasami was a magical girl.

Didn't really give a shit about Tenchi in Tokyo though. It never seemed as interesting as the others, and threw out most of the cool mythology from the OAV and Universe.

Just finished the Pumpkin Scissors series. Enjoyable, but I hate it when shows just kind of "end". No closure or wrapping up most threads or anything. More of the same, some sort of dialog, and a "straight into morning"/"keep doing what we're doing" ending.

I know that this is usually due to the anime getting ahead of the manga (I guess animation houses are able to better stick to a schedule than a manga artist/author?), but it's still annoying. I actually prefer it when the anime deviates and just makes its own ending, like the first FMA series.

Speaking of non-endings, I also finished Panty & Stocking today (being sick gives me a lot of time to catch up on my Hulu queue), and I'm hoping we do indeed get a Season 2. I wouldn't call it a "great" show, but it's something like a "guilty pleasure" or "good, mindless schlock", like going to see a Michael Bay film just because you want to see the explosions, or re-runs of Family Matters at 1 AM especially if they involve Stephan.

I just thought it was stupid how, instead of a war between the demon factions, which would have been WAY more interesting, we get another tournament after having like 50 episodes dedicated to the last one, only this time it's much shorter (seriously it's like 4 episodes) so a lot of the fights are skimmed over or are short, and everyone is buddy buddy, "I am so proud to fight you, let's get slow motion shots of us smiling while punching each other with triumphant music in the background" with each other.

I didn't mind the short fights, it was a nice change of pace in my opinion.

Funny, because most, if not all of this, isn't even shown on the manga.

Also, I found interesting the developing relationship between Hiei and Mukuro.

Ever read the manga? It has some epilogue after the point the show reached, one tweest even changes the whole perspective on the youkai.

They published a sort of encyclopedia in my country, in 3 volumes, dunno if it's what you're after. If I bump into some scans, I'll see if I link them.

So I heard a rumor that Takahashi is going to wrap up Ri-ne (which I don't read) soon and bring back Ranma 1/2. Does anyone else know about this?

Then she'll bring back Inuyasha.

It's a fantastic movie.

Almost everything I've seen that was directed by Satoshi Kon was astoundingly good, with the exception of Paprika which was still an alright movie. I still haven't seen Millennium Actress or Perfect Blue, though. I should really get on that.

/jam/. While the 'j' is for Japan, 'Manga' is generally a blanket term for artwork originating anywhere in the "east", i.e., Asian countries, to include China.

No, Chinese comics are Manhua, and Korean comics are Manwa.
>> No. 80905
Yes, which boils down to semantics. Nothing stopping them from being discussed on this board.
>> No. 80906
The comic/manga thing is no less semantic than the manga/manhua/manwa thing.

Well, manhua and manwa belong on /a/ on 4chan proper, (even though most threads like that are saged or ignored,) so I'd go with /jam/ in this case.

It was wonderful. Wasn't he also the director of Paranoia Agent as well?

Oh boy, I'm getting pretty hype for Japan sync.
They're dropping the alpha off the title when that happens.
I got to admit, when I read the name "Weekly Shonen Jump alpha", I didn't read Alpha as in an Alpha test, but I guess that's what it was.

So Magi has become /pol/'s official manga, because it's obviously about the Jewish world conspiracy and now it's become impossible to discuss the manga on 4chan unless you like getting flooded by far right tinfoil hat ramblings. Splendid.....

This is pretty funny because Marika is the type of character who outwardly appears to be the ~perfect bride~ for the hero...except actually she's totally nuts, her entire persona is a fabrication to win his affections, and she is firmly in 'would not hit' territory for the hero as a result.

Apparently that's close enough for Japanese neckbeards.

Since Ken's Rage 2 is coming out soon and features content from HnK2 it reminds...just what a piece of crap HNK2 was for the most part, filled with so much terrible writing. You can really tell the author wasn't bringing his A game.

Still that doesn't mean the game won't be fun.
Kicking the ass of all the superhuman martial-artists with older Bat and Rin could be amusing.

Casual anime fans are not weeaboos.
People who are interested in Japanese TV and culture outside of anime (some of who don't even like anime) are not weeaboos.
People who think ramen and sushi taste good are not weeaboos.

This term is getting overused nowadays.

Sushi is also ideal if you have a sensitive stomach because of the rice.

Yeah, it has gotten to the point where people have become downright japanophobic just to score some hipster cred. It's ridiculous.

I can't wait for magic kung fu Dolph Lungden.
I always thought it applied to someone who boasted how superior another culture was to their own. Japan isn't perfect but weeaboos paint it as some magical land that'll love them because they read Inuyasha. That being said I don't think there's anything wrong with enjoying stuff from other cultures. Just don't be a dick.
>> No. 81038
Yes, that was originally what weeaboo means. But now it has become an overarching term for "anything vaguely Asian/stuff I don't like".

Pretty much that happens with a lot of terms, most recently "mary sue" and "hipster".

Indeed, my friend.

The only thing that gives me pause about the series is ALL of the superheroes of the Verse seem to completely suck

They all lose handily to absolutely any threat they face during a chapter, obviously OPM is much stronger than any of them but to see so many of them lose so handily makes them lack credibility as a whole

Even Genos is amongst the losers, the only thing he's beaten so far is the cyber gorilla, the mosquito lady was ripping him apart easily after doping up and he was no match at all for the big monster dude obviously

You must learn to listen when we tell you things. That spoiler is only episode 7 or something. There are a good 19 episodes after that.
Besides, half the point of the series is establishing that Simon is a bigger badass and a better hero than Kamina ever was.

I'm watching the movies first, since that arrangement worked for me with Eva.

Nnnnnnnnooooooooot quite the same so far.

Funny thing.
A lot of people keep forgetting about that, and keep worshiping Kamina like a second coming of Christ or something. Including some of my friends. It can get annoying with time.

...Which Eva movies did you watch? Rebuild? Because Rebuild is basically a different (albeit, much better) series using the same characters. If you mean Death and Rebirth and End then I have no idea what led you to that (or what you could have gotten out of End).

As for Gurren-hen and Lagann-hen, they are mostly just your standard crummy compilation movies, though Lagann-hen's finale is more enjoyable than the series finale.
