What are /a/'s thoughts regarding decent-quality original works that have been suddenly adapted into an anime and made popular among normal fags?

Would top-notch mangas like Vinland Saga or Vagabond ever get unnecessary hate from /a/ if an adaptation is made? (Even if the chances of adaptation are slim to none).
>>
Undoubtedly. I'm a bit scared for Akame ga Kill.
>>
Yes
Anything can get unnecessary hate
>>
Vagabond wouldn't work as an anime. Maybe as a Ghibli movie, but even that is questionable.

>Vinland Saga
>top notch
Nah.
>>
JoJo got an anime yet /a/ still loves it.

>>101739459
I fucking hate the anime
>>
>>101739418
Akame ga Kill is trash though.
>>
Imagine how very hated secondaries would be if Yotsuba got adapted. Thankfully, it won't ever happen.
>>
>>101739418
That was such a shitty manga. I really hope the anime becomes huge so I can stop seeing people say it's good.
>>
I've already seen people hate on Parasyte and call it nothing special before the anime got announced.
>>
>>101739539
It did happen with Mirai Nikki and Deadman Wonderland.
>>
Anything could and would get hate if it gets touched by normalfags. It's sad, but it's the way it has to be.

I remember the days when JJBA would only get a single chapter released every a couple of months even when we were years behind, and threads would get 100 or 200 replies before dying.

I liked the anime, but now I can't stand the fanbase.
>>

It's going to be interesting to see how Parasyte turns out.

Right, but see, when decent manga are just that, everything is fine and only the people enjoying the decent manga are in the thead.

Then it becomes an anime, gets overexposure, and all of the counterculture anons have to hate it and point out its flaws.
>>
>>101739887
though Agk was called shit even when it was a manga

so were Medaka Box and Mirai Nikki latter was called shit after the third act and dat ending
>>
>>101739994
Medaka Box is one of those rare examples where the fanbase and threads stayed exactly the same because no one even watched the anime.

Who could do justice to a Vagabond adaptation?

Maybe Madhouse? Shigurui was pretty dope.

also the same question for Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer except replace Madhouse with Trigger
>>
>>101740187
It doesn't fucking work as an anime.

It's 20% philosophy and 40% imagery. Anime wouldn't be able to convey that shit properly, so it's reduced to 40% ACTION, which turns it into a stupid battle anime. One of many.
>>
>>101740276
you obviously haven't seen how Shaft series are made. Try Bakemonogatari

Iit would probably be as bad as the Bee Train Blade of the Immortal adaption.

I never said that Vagabond done by SHAFT would be good. I just countered the anon's conception that an anime focused on imagery and philosphy would not work, except that's pretty much the drawing point of Bakemonogatari.
If SHAFT would have a giant budget and would stop doing their abstract shit, it could work.
>>
>>101740472
>I'm sure Vinland Saga has something

it wasn't called farmland saga for nothing.
>>
>>101740565
Musashi will fight him, but only because they both like fighting and want to know who's the stronger one.

They are friends rather than enemies. (though that's still the wrong term)
>>
>>101739459
Aye, the adaption is legit good though.
>>
Vagabond anime would swallow because they wouldn't be able to get the art right. It's the same thing with the Jojo anime, it just doesn't look right.
>>
>>101740588
Maybe, a movie with good budget and without Shinbo could work, but still I preffer a movie by Ghibli or nothing
>>
Some things just never should get an adaption.

Because in the end, it would probably end up failing to live up to the manga. Manga like Berserk or Blame, for instance.
>>
>>101740633
if Jojo producers had twice as much money, it might be closer.

but yeah, generally nothing can touch araki's actual illustrations. the OPs almost do but not quite.
>>
>>101740588
The point is you can't translate Vagabond's imagery into a TV show. You need a movie budget for that sort of thing.

And with all that introspection, you need a looooot of time that modern TV is just no longer willing to surrender.

Adaptions are either
(1. Adaptions butchered it (see: Zetman)
(2. Source material wasn't good in the first place (see AgK)
(3. Both were good but it attracts horrible elements (see: Jojo)
(4. Both were good and it doesn't attract bad elements but the discussions are low profile on fear it may become number 3
>>
Most anime adaptions of manga are just adverts for their manga counterparts anyway. Especially the low budget ones that have one or two seasons and just stop, with outing adapting the entire manga, or maybe they're given an anime original ending that differs from the manga end since the manga isn't finished at the time.

There are exceptions, like Monster, which got 1:1 adaption. Or anime like Planet's, which differ from the manga, but are arguably just as good as it if not better than the manga and get a conclusive ending.

Depends on the crowd it attracts.

I'm not sure about Vinland Saga. But Vagabond is quite spiritual in tone, and I doubt works like than would attract the SAO/SnK crowd.

Now, Akame ga kill, Terra for Mars, parasyte. These were all announced, and I have no idea how they'll be treated on /a/. But you can expect them to either get a lot of threads while they air, and the fanbase will quiet down after it finishes airing, only to get redirected to /v/ because they attracted a lot of shitposters while it aired and gave the series a bad name. Or it'll be like SnK and SAO, which have pretty annoying childish fan bases and stick around for a long time.

Of course it would. /a/ as a whole tends to shit on anything popular with anyone else. Whether it be accusing nips of having shit taste in all sales threads or redirecting people to /co/ for trying to talk about something popular in the West.

Nothing destroys thread quality like an animated adaptation.

Such hate would come only from a very small amount of people if such an adaption should occir.

If a work is hard to critique badly, and can be defended easily because there aren't any plotholes, no bullshit moments, etc, then you can expect minimal shitposting from people who hate it or want to reverse troll it.

> Would top-notch mangas like Vinland Saga or Vagabond ever get unnecessary hate from /a/ if an adaptation is made? (Even if the chances of adaptation are slim to none).

The only thing how to evade hate is if the work and its adaptation remains strongly overlooked even when and after anime is airing. Like Hyouge Mono. Still the best anime in recent years and best TV anime since Planetes in 2003 and people don't hate the fanbase because it's pretty small. The threads are very rare but worthwile because retards, normalfags and shitposters look at the picture in Catalog and think it looks boring.

The ultimate way is to be ignorem by most on /a/. Same fate as Hyouge Mono will probably (and hopefully) befall Kiseijuu. Since Kiseijuu threads are very rare and when they appear only like six people post in them and then they die. Even in "what anime are you looking forward to" people are mentioning Mushishi often, Akame ga Kill, shit tons of other series' and no one bothers mentioning Kiseijuu.

You can have decent threads about very popular stuff on /a/ if you make a good OP. But since almost nobody on /a/ ever bothers making something beyond "What do you think of X" (which of course is still leagues better than "Why is Y so perfect", the majority of /a/ will never enjoy being the OP of a good thread with Cowboy Bebop or Death Note as the topic.
>>
>>101740137

> Hoshi no Samidare
> No flaws

Except for woeful lack of motivations for many characters, unrealistic actions from characters, general unlikeability of many characters, and a bunch of other shit.

It wasn't shit, but it wasn't perfect either. I have no idea why it gets the treatment it does, because it really isn't very phenomenal or even interesting. But for some reason everyone has been wanting an anime version of it that would be like FLCL since forever.
>>
>>101742449
I didn't watch Hyouge Mono because the author shunned the anime which is never a good sign.

He did that because singer of the opening song (which is absolutely fabulous by the way) was involved in a drug scandal. So author of the manga decided he doesn't want to be "tied" to anime adaptation so much. He never really shunned the anime itself as far as I know.

The anime itself is very faithful and well directed (strangely it did the same man who directed Mugen no Juunin which was disaster) and it does not deviate from the manga but it has great ending without actually changing anything and manga still continues. The staff just knew exactly when to end it. It's very fulfilling end.
>>
>>101742954
It was good until the teenage version of the MC appeared. That's when it got really edgy and retarded and I stopped caring
which is saying a lot because I started reading MPD Psycho because I just finished reading Death Note and thought it was the best thing ever. MPD Psycho was that edgy and try-hard that even my teenage self found the second part retarded
