Slowpoke here. What's the word on Yamakan's SOS call? Will WUG be discontinued?
I just watched the movie and liked it. But I have to wonder at Yamakan's stupidity here. Why didn't he just make this movie to build some hype and support, like LWA? Alternatively, he could've just gone ahead with the show with no movie to save money and time and energy. Why both?
>Will WUG be discontinued?
Has any show ever been discontinued before it ended?
So he wouldn't have to waste time getting the group together and doing extensive introductions within the series most likely.
But yeah, The movie should have been done a few weeks in advance rather than on the same day.
You can't half ass it when trying to save anime.
Do you guys think the end of the movie was a cry for help?
>We're a new group with no money, but we just want to do our best! Please support us!
I doubt it will be discontinued, the problem isn't with funding or anything, it's just fucked up scheduling.
At most some episodes might be delayed, but a full on cancellation seems drastic.
Even if production's in jeopardy, didn't it have good numbers for presales? What >>100317746 said sounds about right
It had good numbers because ticket bundles
The movies has good numbers because it is cheaper then your usual BD and it has a lot of extras. The first Volume of the anime does not perform great. Might change after the second episode was aired.
>At most some episodes might be delayed
How does this even work? I mean, they already booked the TV slots, will the stations air commercials instead until Yamakan gets his shit together? Some people will get pretty pissed off about that. Not to mention that in order to avoid this, they will most certainly rather deliver half-assed episodes. He already apologized for rushed parts in the movie and episode 1, so this will probably get worse to the point they do a half hour slideshow. And Yamakan will be celebrated for deconstructing SHAFT.
>didn't it have good numbers for presales?
No. It's at 167 pt, even pupa has more (171 pt). Some guy is posting threads to make it appear the movie is a success because it currently ranks high, but it only has 1k as well. So both are far from doing good. It's a low average performance so far.
