Re: Berserk Creator Kentarou Miura Passes at 54

Yeah, after a certain point in a long running series, you run a real danger of never finishing it before your time passes. That being said, 54 is still too young.

Re: The new Demon Slayer movie. It's a huge box office hit. Thoughts?

I figured it was popular on that typical shonen level of at least being around the same ballpark as a Tokyo Ghoul/Fairy Tail. But the money it's making in every country? That's unexpected. This movie has been beating even stalwart brand releases like DBZ and Pokemon. It doesn't even seem to get talk...

The new Demon Slayer movie. It's a huge box office hit. Thoughts?

Maybe I've been living under a rock, but even though Demon Slayer I know is pretty popular, I never thought it would do this well. Anyone seen it?

Re: The end to the Harmony Gold-Macross debacle

Huh. Well. I'd been wanting to see the newer shows for some time now.

Re: Oldschool OVAs You Wish Were Completed

Well, there was a later Giant Robo TV series, wasn't there? I always thought the "preview" at the last episode of GR was more of a nod to its serial nature. Kinda like Star Wars starting at episode 4 originally--it was meant to evoke the feeling of old serials how you sort of jump in and o...

Re: Discotek have found Project A-ko master reel!

The last DVD was still watchable, but you can definitely see the colors aren't as deep as they should be, nor is the linework as clear, especially by modern standards.

Re: Discotek have found Project A-ko master reel!

I also wonder what the Japanese reaction is to this news. Surely there are many fans of A-Ko still in Japan?

Re: Discotek have found Project A-ko master reel!

AMAZING news! I knew there had to be some sort of print out there, but a master reel is better than I could have hoped for.

Re: Amazon developing live-action Hellsing based on the manga

Confession--I don't really like most of the Marvel/DC movies. They're too machine-like and factory-manufactured for my liking. But, its success is that it pleases the fanbase, and the general public likes them, which is what counts. Comic book superhero movies didn't take off until Hollywood underst...

Re: Amazon developing live-action Hellsing based on the manga

I think the difference is the fanbase. Anime/manga fans don't really watch and read anime and manga to want American live action versions of them. Anime fans at most view Hollywood anime adaptations with curiosity, but it's nothing close to a reaction like "OMG the new Avengers movie. MUST WATC...
