I was just watching ME!ME!ME! again and wondering where the songs are from/ who are the artists that were singing like if they had other songs or if this video was their only place they actually sang.

Does anybody here recall the series Lone Wolf and Cub? I've only just been reminded of it and immediately felt the need to reminisce. What an absolutely beautiful series. To anybodies knowledge, did it ever achieve any American following, or was it too early for a western fandom?

There's no way this isn't getting a second season, right?

This was a good show. Honestly right now I think it's a pretty solid 8/10. I'd almost say it's mandatory viewing. It does a very good job of explaining the industry. Obviously a lot of it is exaggerated, romanticized and dramatized, but it's still, from what I can tell, pretty well executed. It wont make you an expert like some people seem to think but it does contextualize a lot of stuff. And yet for some reason it feels like it was heavily overlooked by many people.
User avatar #1134814 to #1134811 - yeorgh (3 hours ago) [-]
Does it explain why most adaptations are half assed jobs that never follow the source material?
User avatar #1134816 to #1134814 - alleksi (3 hours ago) [-]
The second half is exclusively about making an anime adaptation from an on-going manga where the team is not exactly sure how to end the story, and how the author keeps denying their ideas and shit.
User avatar #1134817 to #1134816 - yeorgh (3 hours ago) [-]
Sounds like bullshit, if manga like Triage X and Jitsu Wa Watashi Wa get their art style butchered like that I doubt the author just agreed to that.

And i'm not talking about the ending, i'm talking about making a bunch of anime original content like it happened with Magi.
User avatar #1134820 to #1134817 - senjougahara (3 hours ago) [-]
Well in this case it was due to the editor being irresponsible. He made all the decisions on behalf of the author without consulting him.
User avatar #1134825 to #1134820 - alleksi (2 hours ago) [-]
That horrible editor, like many other characters in the show, is actually based off of a real person who is apparently just as horrible in real life.
User avatar #1134821 to #1134820 - yeorgh (3 hours ago) [-]

User avatar #1134823 to #1134822 - yeorgh (2 hours ago) [-]
You're saying it's not? how else would you call making decisions without taking into account the authors opinion on it other than shitty?
User avatar #1134826 to #1134823 - senjougahara (2 hours ago) [-]
I still dont see how that makes it shit. It actually happens. Because the author found out, he protested and demanded that the studio should remake the character designs and script.

In Triange/Jitsu's, it has to be cus the author doesnt give a shit or didnt know.
User avatar #1134827 to #1134826 - yeorgh (2 hours ago) [-]
Not the anime itself but the industry as a whole, it's a shit industry.

Making the anime 90% original is a shitty move that I doubt the author would also aprove of, like Magi or Deadman Wonderland.
User avatar #1134828 to #1134827 - yeorgh (2 hours ago) [-]
Though the Magi author probably doesn't give a shit since it got another season of source material butchering.

User avatar #1134831 to #1134824 - alleksi (2 hours ago) [-]
You understand that the author doesn't always work hand in hand with the animation studio and that if he has a shitty enough contract with the publishing company then he might not have any say at all, right?

Anime adaptations are 90% of the time made as advertisements and 10% of the time made as a "passion project". It's a pretty basic concept to be honest, you don't have to watch Shirobako to know that.

The reason why studios have to destroy the integrity of the source material by adding in their own shit is because they can't just abruptly end the story. If you plan out a twelve episode anime series for a manga that hasn't ended and that doesn't already have a good ending point somewhere withing the story, then the writers have to make compromises and come up with something of their own. Not because the want to, but because they have to. The people making this shit aren't sitting around a table, maniacally rubbing their hands together while thinking about all the ways that they could change and fuck up the story. Of course not.

The person who has read the source material will prefer an 1:1 adaptation even if the ending has zero conclusion and coherency, but anime adaptations ain't made just for the people who have read the manga, if anything you could argue that they're made for everyone else but for those people since, like I said, 90% of the time they're glorified advertisements. In that regard the people making that shit might have to change shit around in order to make it an actual coherent story.


This ain't rocket science. If you read manga, then I do not see a reason why you would watch any anime adaptation for a manga that has only started, or hasn't ended yet, because those will most likely be different (and therefore "shit"). Just watch anime originals and stuff where the source material is actually complete.

TLDR: Yes, money is evil and makes things terrible.
User avatar #1134840 to #1134831 - yeorgh (2 hours ago) [-]
Oh and "The person who has read the source material will prefer an 1:1 adaptation even if the ending has zero conclusion and coherency, "

How does that even work? the manga is basically a story board, how would the ending have zero conclusion and coherency? , even on ongoing stuff there's always a point where there's a cliffhanger or the end of an arc or something similar where you can end it.
User avatar #1134846 to #1134840 - alleksi (2 hours ago) [-]
I guess SnK is a pretty good example (and it's probably the only case of manga adaptation where I actually read the source material before the anime adaptation stopped airing).

Pretty much everyone who read the manga agreed that the walls are titans reveal was the best spot to end the anime series. It's a good spot to end on since it solves the main problem of that arc, while leaving you on a cliffhanger as well. Yet they still included some weird anime-only stuff right at the end.
Even if it was a naturally fitting spot to end on the series there was one or two problems with it in terms of a television series ending. 1) honestly, not necessarily climactic enough. The finale climax should trump everything else that has happened in previous climactic moments, which honestly it didn't because the ending of the arc in the manga is supposed to smoothly cross over to the next arc with the walls are titans reveal. 2) not enough closure for the characters.

Had they went with 1:1 adaptation with the manga, the last episode would have ended with something like the camera zooming in on Mikasa's face when she sees the titan within the wall, and then cut to black and roll credits. That's not a good ending for a television series. It really isn't. Especially when there's no guarantee of a follow-up season. the "season two" baits are some of the worst kind of endings (unless S2 is already announced)

And now imagine that most manga adaptations do not have that kind of a luxury. To have a story that almost perfectly fits the time frame of the episodes.
The next proper cliffhanger/change of arc point in the story could either be too far in the story, in which case they have to pad it all out, or too close, in which case they have to cut shit, or change it completely, for it to match the 12 episodes frame.
Even with SnK the pacing suffered because they tried to be as faithful to the manga as possible.

User avatar #1134847 to #1134846 - yeorgh (1 hour ago) [-]
But that would had been the perfect ending, are you for real? it's the type of ending that makes you go "OH SHIT" and like you said, it's not necessarily season two bait since it's just advertisement for the manga, in fact, most faggots came in here asking about that exact thing and a lot of them even went on to read the manga.

It can be done, they just have to have proper pacing that fits the part of the manga they're trying to do, Gainax did that perfectly with Medaka which is extremely wordy, even when it changed from SoL to combat shounen they knew just how to adapt it so it wasn't a complete mess.

There's also JoJo, they had too fit two arcs which had different lengths in 26 episodes and they pulled it off.
User avatar #1134849 to #1134847 - alleksi (1 hour ago) [-]
I'm going to have to disagree. It's not a good ending. You don't end a whole television series on a massive cliffhanger without providing context on the state of the other characters. What happened to Eren? What about Annie? You have resolve your characters before ending the show.
User avatar #1134850 to #1134849 - yeorgh (1 hour ago) [-]
That's what the manga is there for and that's why the anime was made, to answer those question, c'mon son, you said that yourself.

One of the problems with Shingeki were the still shots, had they used those moments to waste time explaining shit or doing the inner monologue crap instead of having them there for a couple of seconds to replace the lack of animation it would had been better.
