Yeah, but the other side is true as well. Good adaptations exist, some even surpassing the source material.
Well, if we look at Araki's other adaptations, Death Note is generally considered a very good and faithful retelling. Many would put it above the manga even. HotD is trash, but that's no different from the manga from what I understand. His trademark is basically turning things up to eleven, which could potentially work well for a manga like Attack on Titan, which more or less wears its heart on its sleeve.

AoT share similar vibe with Shin Sekai Yori.. Its would be great if they can reach that quality with better consistency, but I'd imagine its would be as inconsistent lol.

Akito's action is great, it's just that the camera keeps on going WOOSH and WHAM and SWOOSH and VROOM that I don't know what the fuck should I focus my attention on.
The 3D animators were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, that they didn't stop to think if they should.

Hey you know which hentai I was watching the other night that would help you get rid of the aftertaste of Lolita Anime? Another Lady Innocent.
Hmmm, that's directed by that artist Satoshi Urushihara, who draws those beautiful bishounen girls? I think I wanna check it out, but the insane amount of pubic hair is a little unsettling...

The biggest issue, adaptation-wise, with Attack on Titan will be how they deal with the various flashbacks and nonlinear narratives. They should probably just do a straight adaptation of those, but we'll see what happens. Otherwise, the story isn't particularly "complicated."
Assuming it's two cour... do we actually have a good stopping point?

The Urushihara-animated endings to Queen's Blade season 2 are marvelous.

The guy who designed the Grownlanser characters designed it, which I find hilarious and incredibly arousing.
Hmmm I do like the be amused and aroused at the same time. In fact, whenever possible I prefer to laugh while masturbating. It just makes everything better.

Well of course there's big fundamental difference.. but the world and the atmosphere are similar, at least that what I feel..
They're superficially similar, but Attack on Titan is substantially more shounen. And while it has good worldbuilding, to be sure, it's not on the same level as From the New World.

Another big difference is that AoT is a massively popular manga and FtnW is a science fiction novel for NERDS.

Ehhhhh...

I don't really want to. I feel pretty content that I made the most successful single show OT of Fall, so making another inactive one would make me sad.

I guess I could if no one else will.
I can do it if you don't want to I guess. Might as well put my anti-jinxing powers to good use.

Assuming it's two cour... do we actually have a good stopping point?
There should be a good place to leave things off if they do 26 episodes or so.

Hi AnimeGAF, some members have told me to come check this place out.

I'm a huge Precure fan that watches the anime since the days of Arienai fansubs taking their holy time to release a episode of the first season.

My favorite anime right now are easily JoJo/Chihayafuru/Space Bros.

I'm actually marathoning the first 7 episodes of Kotoura-san right now and I'm also going to watch Robotics;Notes after this.

I'd trust you to put more effort into it than I would at least. Didn't even do character profiles for the JoJo thread beyond images and names.

Edit: Welcome, people from that loli thread!

Blame Mad Pierrot. He's the reason we don't have a Precure thread yet.

Yeah, AoT's more action packed and SSY more focused with the conspiracy thing.

Btw I hope the anime wouldn't make the action erase the horror element completely, good thing Araki not doing that in Death Note or HSotD..

Expect no less from the director of Guilty Crown.
Every time I start to get hyped again, I remember this.

They look even more disturbing in the original manga:
I think it's a shame that no matter how good the anime winds up looking, it's never going to match that original level of expressiveness and horror.

Don't even care. Nothing's killing all this hype

Source material's too good for him to lose all the shimmer in translation
I thought Nurarhiyon was too good for everything to be lost in translation, but that series got butchered beyond all recognition. If DEEN could find a way to pull that off, I'm sure that it's possible for the team on Kyojin to come up with all sorts of ways to completely butcher the material.

The biggest issue, adaptation-wise, with Attack on Titan will be how they deal with the various flashbacks and nonlinear narratives. They should probably just do a straight adaptation of those, but we'll see what happens. Otherwise, the story isn't particularly "complicated."
The story not being complicated doesn't mean that someone on the staff (who we all hold in such high esteem) couldn't decide that they can improve on it. Flashbacks are the biggest concern, but I'm nervous about everything.

Especially since this is from the guy who somehow managed to adapt one of the shittiest manga endings of all time and actually make it worse.

Welcome aboard.

You should probably finish watching Penguindrum, due to it being one of the best anime of the past decade. And I'm sorry for anyone who tricked you into watching Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai. You should probably try and forget ever watching that.

I'm always happy to see more fans of Digimon, and I was a big fan of both Nanoha and Nanoha As. So I can say that I definitely agree with some of those favorites.

Now everybody go watch Strike Witches. . . NOW.
I never watched that one, I saw like 2 episodes and it never clicked with me, I've never been a fan of shows that show a bunch of ass/pantsu... I just don't like fanservice in general. I hate Echhi anime too

Maybe that's why I love Precure


Where can I cry over there not being a Darker than Black season 3?
