Dropped the manga after 2 volumes. I couldn't stopped asking myself when will it get good and it never got good.

Spirit Circle is better

Sengoku Youko is best

>>101489924
I heard they were in talks but it was stopped/cancelled because the mangaka was only interested in the Pillows doing the soundtrack and they were butthurt about something that happened with FLCL for some reason and said no

But that might just be the fantastical imaginings of /a/ at work.

Fear not though, if/when I make my web3.0 fortune, it's one of the few things I plan on buying the rights to and making sure it gets a damn good adaptation.

Gonna agree with >>101490229 here. I heard how much emotion was in this manga, but honestly, the MC rejecting the delicious snake girl got to me the most.

The only other time was when the girl revealed the name of her attack. Sword of the Brave indeed.

All the other moments in the manga just seemed kinda meh.

>>101490931
not really, it's more like digimon. the animals power up and fight each other while the humans basically sit back on the sidelines and do nothing.

I don't know if it was because I got to Marathon Biscuit, but neither of those quite measures up in my opinion.

Sengoku Youko is relatively slow in comparison, and doesn't have quite the level of impact especially after the first timeskip.

Spirit Circle, on the other hand, hit me like a fucking truck.
>>
>>101491139
duralumin got lazy

He even said earlier on his blog that the reason he forgot to post new chapters and had to release a couple together was because he genuinely FORGOT about them.

Why would it? It's completely unremarkable down to every detail. I would rather see an adaptation of Pluto or Sunken Rock

Well I can see your point with-

Opinion disregarded.

Didn't some US publisher say they were going to release the manga over here?
I think it was Seven Seas, but I could be wrong. Haven't heard anything since some random twitter pic.
>>
>>101491293
To this day I still don't know whether this is really the case or whether this is a misunderstanding of /a/'s. From what I remember years back it was only anons saying that the Pillows would be perfect for a theoretical anime. That being the reason why there IS no anime, though, has only started appearing as of last year or so.

Is there an actual source? I'm going to assume the latter otherwise.
>>
>>101491353
I'm really suprised Pluto doesn't already have some kind of ova or something, Urosawa is really famous and plus it is a Tezuka homage.
Sun Ken Rock is made by a korean, so no luck with that, although it would never be as good as the manga anyways.

Pun pun or Eden manga might be cool as well.

The manga probably doesn't need help selling, and I can't imagine there's many merchandising opportunities for it. So why would they bother?

author probably wanted this song as OP
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueDvKMuoJvs
And now we know why there's been no Hoshi no Samidare/The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer anime.

From the new Newtype, an interview with Mizukami Satoshi (Mangaka of Hoshi no Samidare), translated by me. Not the whole article, just the important part.

>NT: Have you been approached about an anime for Hoshi no Samidare?
>MS: Yes. I talked with Gainax about it, but there were problems.
>NT: What kind of problems?
>MS: Well, I wanted The Pillows to do the soundtrack.
>NT: I think that was obvious!
>MS: Yes, of course. Gainax was interested and wanted The Pillows to do the soundtrack. We talked to the band and they were interested too.
>NT: What happened then?
>MS: Well it seems like the whole thing should be good to go, right?
>NT: Right.
>MS: But the labels for The Pillows music did not want to give up the licensing rights. The current label, Avex Trax wouldn't budge and King Records, their previous label, wouldn't either.
>NT: Why not just make new music or not use The Pillows?
>MS: Well... there is the next problem. We fought about it for several months trying to get them on board, and then...
>NT: And then?
>MS: The offer was off the table. Funding went to something else and the offer for a Hoshi no Samidare anime was removed.
>NT: Where did the funding go?
>MS: I think to Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt.
>NT: And you haven't had any other anime offers since.
>MS: Nope.
>>
At least we can agree that it would be pretty bad if current-Gainax were to adapt this now, right?
>>
>>101490008
>>101491353
This. I couldn't get past the first volume because of all the cringeworthy humor and cliche, but I have a friend who swears it's the greatest series in existence.
>>
>>101491927
Current Gainax is not that bad.
Their anime just sell like shit.
>>
>>101491824
Key word is sole purpose. So you are saying blockbuster Shingeki no Kyojin was adapted just to push manga sales? how does that help I.G.? I'm pretty sure 70k blurays sold is a marketable significance
>>
>>101491827
Alright that's good enough for me, a whole anime getting killed over one stupid song's license kinda sucks though.

And yeah, Biscuit Hammer is a pretty sweet song which gives me mixed feelings over why they didn't just make a new song and get on with it.
>>
>>101492014
So you are saying that Pluto would sell SnK numbers?

And before you answer, consider: nobody has bothered to adapt it.
>>
>>101491996
I'd probably have to wait until they animate something that I'd actually like to make a better informed decision, then.

The last thing I enjoyed was Dantalian (which I guess was only a few years ago).
Don't really care for Medeka Box, and can't watch C3 because I absolutely hate airsoft.
>>
>>101489924
Wasn't there a rumor going around that they were finally going to make physical copies of that manga in english?
>>
>>101491827
Well that blows, I liked Panty and Stocking but I'll take a Biscuit Hammer anime over it anyday.
>>
>>101491827
what's the author plans as of now
>>
>>101491984
Yeah but you didn't even finish it so what your opinion is invalid. I read the whole thing and thought it was OK. Worthy of adaptation: not with manga like Kokou no Hito, Real, and Vinland Saga that are perfect canditates for anime. That is to say, paced enough for episodic restriction, actiony, and are stories of character adventure. Same thing could be said for Hoshi no Samidare of course, the point being its not cream of the crop, its just crop.
>>
>Wanting Trigger/Old Gainax to do an adaptation rather than an original anime.

You truly are the worst type of person.
>>
>>101492024
It's not the fault of Panty stocking and Garterbelt it was the plan B of GAINAX
probably Japan has a nip equivalent of MPAA or something because everyone's basically up for the idea then backed the fuck out.
>>
>>101492096
It doesn't have to sell 70k to be a success, and no I did not say that.
>>
Is old Gainax even still there? Looks like they just melted away after Diebuster. the psycho anno spirit no longer exists, that was a one shot wonder. The best bet they for a return to grace is to get the rebuilds over with and hurry up with Wings of Honneamise 2
>>
>>101492209
Clearly nobody over there is convinced that it would be worthwhile, and I would assume they know their market better than we do.
>>
>>101492306
no its just that they are all in Trigger now, although people might not like to hear that, gunbuster to flcl to diebuster to ttgl, then to trigger to do that other bullshit. people don't like to think about flcl being associated with kill la kill but it has its share of similarities
>>
>>101492014
There is never a sole purpose when it comes to making an anime, the production of a single show is the result of numerous companies and parties coming together to form a production committee and fund the actual show as part of an overall multimedia franchise. All profits gained from sales and promotions of anything to do with that IP is taken in and shared amongst participants in the committee. BD sales are direct profit and make up a significant chunk due to their place as pure revenue, but promotion of LN's, manga, and other goods contribute to the overall revenue figure before it's divvied up to stakeholders.

To illustrate, the Chihayafuru anime had terrible BD sales but the largescale marketing by the production committee lead to a massive boost in the manga which ended up paying off and allowing a season 2 to be made. In fact, most franchises end up paying off eventually from long term sales of the manga or LN, how fast it pays off is the real distinguisher of successful and not so successful shows.
>>
>>101492527
>largescale marketing by the production committee

Could you explain what that means? I've always been curious how poorly watched anime boost manga sales. That's the bit I can't figure out.
>>
>>101490419
Oh, the pain. Again.

They'd have to do it pretty fucking well for it to get to me again.
>>
>>101492402
haruko and nonon share a seiyuu
>>
>>101492747
Not that guy, but poorly watched isn't the same as poorly bought in terms of BDs which is what I think you may be confused by. Plus there's ad campaigns for the anime which also can be considered ads for the manga. And most nips would pick up a manga as its more acceptable with anime being more niche.

Fair enough.

Well sure, but I mean those guys wouldn't be affected by the existence of the anime, I wouldn't have thought.
>>
>>101492402
Only similar in superficial things besides the crazy and random tone they both have. Besides that they are completely different shows, FLCL is a character development show focusing on puberty, kill la kill is just crazy action and nonsense a la gunbuster and inferno cope
>>
>>101490008
It gets better later on but it really isn't anywhere near as good as people make it out to be. It's a mediocre manga with some awful main characters. The supporting characters are what make this thing readable.
>>
>>101493049
The fact that there is an anime going on means promotional events, banners in train stations, ads in magazines, displays in bookstores, et al. The marketing footprint of an anime extends pretty wide when you consider that many of the big production committee participant companies are major publishers and broadcasters and the like who have a hand not only in anime but more mainstream media.
>>
>>101493277
I see, thanks.
>>
>>101492151
Spirit Circle and whatever else comes his way, I guess.
>>
>>101492151
>>101493365
Heck, if he manages to get a Spirit Circle or Sengoku Youko anime made that would instantly increase the odds of a Biscuit Hammer anime. There is still hope as long as both we and him are alive.

would you giant legs?
