what are your opinions on the announcement of Akame ga Kill anime?
can't wait to watch this with /a/
They're probably going to butcher it.
the manga is pretty shallow but tries really hard to be dark and edgy
kind of like FMA
Hopefully White Fox can get Naoto Hosoda to work on it.
simplify the manga in one word
this is what i'm afraid of.
censorship up the ass for example
>but tries really hard to be dark and edgy
Couldn't tell what with all the comedy on every other page.
Second season never. ;_;
It's shit, isn't it?
Probably gonna be a shit adaptation.
Depends on how long it will be. I just hope it will cover most of Esdese's arc as that was the only good thing about the series so far. I really liked how both the protagonists and the enemies got a lot of screentime, so that while none of the characters are/were particularly good, you'd still feel some sort of attachement to them. In that way, it's miles ahead of shit like Attack on Titan. It also helped that almost none of them are/were edgemasters. But sadly, most of Akame ga Kill is shit that ''is pretty shallow but tries really hard to be dark and edgy'' like an other /a/non said. Take the recently introduced throw-away villains for example, they are all edgy fucks who can only think about rape and murder.
A lot less characters died than I expected too. Every character so far had a death flag or two, but only a few actually died. This way the manga keeps a sense of danger while retaining some sort of unpredictability.
Concerning the cencorship, I'm not too worried about that. Especially in the beginning there isn't too much and I highly doubt the possible censorship for what little gore there is in the series will turn out to be hindering your enjoyment of the series.
tl;dr: it's shit but somewhat fun in its own way. Sadly it will be really popular with the masses, the manga is rated ridiculously high on MAL.
Did you watch nothng but the 2003 anime?
The manga has tons of humor.
The day it gets released, /a/ will become Edgeville.
It's going to be the new Attack on Titan.
Vaguely pleased. I might not actually watch it, though.
I don't usually watch anime adaptations of manga that I've actually watched. I really enjoy AgK but don't hold it in an especially high regard, it's really just popcorn entertainment for me, so I'm not worried about White Fox 'ruining it' with a weak adaptation.
I'm happy to think that the adaptation might bring some more money, and some pleasure to AgK's creators, who I'm thankful to for providing me with some light entertainment. Plus, I've had a good time in many of the threads we've had on this board, which obviously wouldn't exist without the manga, so I've one more reason to be grateful to the mangakas.
There's also the appeal of curiosity, seeing how they adapt it, how everything'll look, the voices they give the characters, etc.
Final point on the plus side, the potential boon to my libido. With any luck, the girls will look good in the anime, and we'll get some doujins too.
On the negative side, I haven't cared much for all the doomsayers we've had popping up in the threads, bitching about how the anime's going to ruin the regular AgK threads, or bitching about what the expanded fanbase is going to be like.
I'll skip on watching this one, mango has torn me up a lot already, what more in the animated medium with no hope of S2
It'll be shit and brings in anime only dumbfucks just like every manga adaptations ever.
>Babbies First Edgy Anime: The Re-Edgening
Seriously, though, this anime is going to decimate the fanbase. AgK is just gonna be the next SnK and everyone will come to hate it.
Which is fine because it was mediocre anyways.
Why bother watching this. They already made a good manga. Look at what they did to Majikoi (same author btw) great VN, mediocare at best animu. Sad but true
White Fox is doing it, they probably are the only studio that never fucked up an adaptation imho. But I'm afraid of the censorship.
Time to abandon another series.
I remember when SAO and SnK had a pretty civil fanbase before animu happened
It could be that my memory is vague, but, aren't the only two times where there is rape a bonus chapter and the most recent chapter? I wouldn't worry about that in that case
Blood is hardly ever censored.
they should have just made a fighting game or a jrpg instead. just saiyin
>Blood is hardly ever censored.
Sure blood might not be censored but i'm much more worried about the black censorship bars ruining the perfect moments.
Sadly, you're probably right anon. It will be flooded with the SnK fanbase, but at least the anime should be enjoyable.
I have mixed feeling about it. I am very happy to know it get anime but at the same time I feel uncomfortable knowing it will get mainstream and become SnK 2.0
it's hard to be a hipster..;_;
>white fox TV series
I am okay with this
It's probably not going to sell much.
this is what kills the industry
jesus I havent played runescape for years. I used to play that everyday as a child
Heh, the only similar thing this has with SnK is the darkness and gore. There's been plenty of anime with that before, this is pretty fucking stupid logic.
Oh sorry, I made an intelligent comment and someone noticed.
When a person talks about a "fanbase" you can usually take it as a sign that you're not dealing with a great mind.
It doesn't matter how good or bad the adaption is, the threads are going to be ruined
It's still kinda fun. Just a little bit.
The manga is bad to mediocre but fun. The anime will likely be mediocre. The threads are going to be horrendous and filled with shitty sarcastic Linkin Park AMVs. RIP, AgK threads. I'll miss talking about new manga chapters with you, /a/.
TFW there end up being no vanilla Wave X Kurome doujins.
Did minatosoft announce anything in the magazine? They have been teasing akame ga kiru on their website.
