Are you ready /a/?
Animated by Madhouse I'm 90% sure now. They often use these filters on promo pics.
And so does manglobe. And gohands.
isn't manglobe broken now?
Yep but still clinging to life somehow. If they do terraformars they'll be beyond help.
but it should sell a lot, too bad no one is buying samurai flamenco
Holy fuck, it's getting an anime?
I stopped reading it ages ago(though I have considered picking it up again), but this announcements taken me by surprise, as I wasn't sure if it was really suited to an anime.
That's looks like Madhouse.
Anyone that could translate this?
>mfw it's madhouse
It basically says "Smashing series expands! TV anime and OVA had been green-lit! Expect more information in the next issue of Young Jump!" Official site should be open in Thursday. It doesn't say which studio will be making the animation but the pic surely looks like Madhouse. Same filters as pic related and their other adaptations like Souten Kouro etcetera.
I guess they could start releasing OVA episodes throughout summer to build up the tension for the autumn TV anime. I dare to guess it will be airing in autumn season since this type of show generally does. Like three 40-minutes OVA episodes could adapt the oneshot of BUGS I and first volume of BUGS II expedition and TV anime could focus on ANNEX expedition. Sounds like a plan to me.
Forgot pic, sorry.
isn't madhouse supper bussy with the fate remake right now?
Hornet is best boy
Fate/stay night remake will be animated by ufotable. Madhouse has Hunter x Hunter ongoing now. Hajime no Ippo and Mahou Sensou will end soon. Then they have Daiya no A joint project with Production I.G. And they have planned two anime for spring season (some generic stuff as Mahou Sensou) but nothing after that.
So they have some free slots for summer and autumn.
Hornet is best man. Best boy is Harpy Eagle. But Huntsman Spider is pretty good too.
Thank you based Madhouse.
When are they doing Mx0 and OMK anime?
Fucking called it, i can't believe that there were people here who didn't think it would spawn an anime.
the only question that remains now is whether or not this will be the next SNK like eveyone says it will be.
So 2012 was ruined by SAO, 2013 was ruined by Titan, and 2014 is going to be ruined by Mahouka. I guess this will be ruining 2015?
>Wanting to see your glorious waifu get wrecked by gigan nigga cockroaches.
They probably saw how killing off the entire cast of main characters in the first chapters was popular to the masses and wanted to follow that.
>yfw when JOHJs will be full CGI
> whether or not this will be the next SNK
In what sense do you mean this? SnK anime itself was fine. If you mean the fanbase then I cannot elaborate to that since I always stop following threads after second episode of anime airs.
It has possibility to be the next hit of SnK highs since it's action packed series with interesting concept, nice set of "super-powers", gore and some glorious nationalism. Though there are some issues which can cause to be disliked here. Like the issue of misinterpreting the premise (which lots of anons make) to be dead serious while it's actually supposed to be gory fun series. Then that "racism" issue which originated by mistaking the roach design for black people while in fact it's logically based on homo erectus. (Which is actually pretty hilarious since Terra ForMars shows us how uneducated people are.) And then there are people who think that the pseudo-science is supposed to be taken for real.
There are lots of variables. It will probably be interesting to see how will more wide western audience react to this. I can see Americans (not all of them of course) hating on this like when they thought that Verhoeven's ultimate parody and satire on fascism Starship Troopers was glorying it.
BACK THE FUCK UP
I'VE GOT THIS
Is it really Madhouse?
So, what colours will the nig... the roaches be?
Black or brown?
Hopping for black, but most likely brown.
Brown with touch of green.
Reminds me of the Marvel shit so it most likely is Madhouse
Dark red, there's a promotional video for the manga where they are in that color.
i wonder how the explanation about each insects powers will be handed
No confirmation yet. Just speculation. I think it's manglobe since it reminds me a lot of deadman wonderland art wise.
This will either be as wildly popular as Attack on Eotens, or flop like Space Dandy.
Space Dandy was an anime original.
Titan was a popular as fuck manga with a huge fanbase before the anime even aired. The same goes for Terra Formars.
A part of me hopes terraformars and akame ga kill air in the same season. Just so we can see which one ends up being more popular.
China Arc is gonna kill off popularity.
>terraformars will become the next attack on titan
>/a/ will hate it with good reason
>SnK anime itself was fine
There were a host of problems with the SnK story that do not apply to TfM. Not least of which is the general tone of the series. Both have an incredibly dumb premise, however where TfM chooses to play up the schlock and focus on the fun, SnK takes itself way too seriously and turns into Elfen Lied 2.0.
Calling them dark red is misleading. They were rust colored, not crimson.
Madhouse loves narrators.
Which is supposed to be released first, OVA or tv?
Which show will get called more edgy?
Johj isn't really edgy; it's too silly.
Has it actually been officially announced? I won't believe it without any solid proof.
But if it is actually true, I cannot contain my hype. This, AND Jojo, holy shit,
At least Akame ga Kill is sort of subversive. Terraformers is straight up edgy.
Funny enough, I remember /a/ discussing about what would happen if this show was to become animated, earlier this week. Well, time for massive autism and ass pained posts
>hurr durr nukes
>hurr durr evolution doesn't work that way
>hurr durr square cube
On a board where half the posters think a show with a galaxy-sized mecha is greatest thing ever, the level of refusal for suspension of disbelief was surprising.
Neither. both series weren´t considered edgy until such buzzword became a thing thanks to /v/
It's the opposite.
> Man what a shitty night
> Let's check some /a/
> JOHJ Animu
Feels good man.
Well I was referring to the fact that /a/ hates anything that becomes popular. Some people are worried this will go along the same way as SnK
The entire reason anyone dies is for the sake of having a fuck ton of deaths in Akame ga Kill. The whole thing is centered around the idea of death in a story.
Terraformers has nothing like that.
>Some people are worried this will go along the same way as SnK
Wich way exactly?
I won't use the word edgy but AgK is the wetdream of your average angry teenager.
That doesn't make it any less subversive. It knows that and is almost based entirely around that idea.
But it makes it shit. Still a bit of enjoyable but shit.
Not him but the edgy factor is not always a bad thing, unless most of the cast is as terrible as shadow the hedgehog/ the average DeviantArt OC artist.
I'm just commenting on it's "edginess". I almost agree with you, AgK is a 6/10 at best.
give it at least a 7/10 the MC got laid, that´s a huge improvement.
Tatsumi is still a virgin, what are you on?
Oh yuss, all of my johjs
They will be black. They are roaches, it was part of the reason they were chosen.
I wish he did ;_;
Took long enough
Are they still wrassling with the Chinese in the manga?
>Tatsumi is still a virgin
Who will voice Komachi?
Will the TFs be voiced? Will they make insect sounds instead?
Chinese arc is not done but there were roach battles in-between.
Yeah, and it's gotten very annoying to read.
The Chinese just won't stop butting in into everything.
Who should do the OST?
I could see Sawano and Iwasaki doing the OST, especially Sawano.
hopefully it would be something akin to SnK's soundtrack but no copy pasted.
Akame ga Kill versus SAO S2 versus Mahouka versus Terra Formars
Truly the battle of our generation.
We're truly blessed to be able to wittness all this glory.
>people happy that it's madhouse
so now we won't have to deal with just the censors, but an anime original ending as well?
I'm hoping for another lower profile composer. I don't think orchestras or electronic music would fit this.
Mahouka should lose, that shit is seriously boring as fuck and uninteresting.
SONO CHI NO SADAME
I will be very displeased if AgK doesn't get Iwasaki. He's perfect for it.
Sawano is more Terraformers like. Sagisu would be awesome but I doubt it.
Madhouse almost never changes anything.
You forgot jojo and mekaku city actors
There is no reason for an anime original end.
The manga is a topseller so the anime should do alright as well. No need to give an early end.
Hellsing, HxH and Chihayafuru say otherwise.
Jojo has a fanbase in /v/ but it isn't MAL Gaiafag territory.
Mekaku City Actors threads could get pretty cancerous though.
Mekaku City Actors is edgy?
JJBA is the 70th highest rated anime on MAL
It attracts youtube weeaboos who love Naruto and shitty vocaloid videos.
>Jojo has a fanbase in /v/ but it isn't MAL Gaiafag territory.
Jojofags became a term for a reason. After the anime started, the fanbase got flooded by tumblrshits and idiots, not on the level of TF, but yeah.
No and neither is any of those series. It's just they're all really popular franchises.
>OVA and TV anime
Let me guess. They will put the prequel in the OVA.
>can't kill myself yet because these are coming out
That would be the reasonable option. Obviously, only if it comes out before the anime. Otherwise it's probably an onsen episode.
I reccomend you don't even start it. It's really bad and boring. Say what you want about SAO, but it was a million times more entertaining than this piece of crap.
>excited for Mahouka, Terraformers, and AgK
Why don't you throw SAO 2 on there two while you are at it?
>Ping Pong not on the list.
I'm a faggot that haven't started the manga yet, should I read it or wait for the anime? (in case it is Madhouse)
tfw they do an ova of Bugs 1 and 2 arc so we dont need a season of EVERYONE DIED OH NO and then it gets into the Annex 1 and keeps pace with the manga.
The 3 parts of that sentence have absolutely nothing to do with each other.
Roaches are brown.
Wow, 70th. That's really up there.
I don´t like SAO.
You won't like Mahouka either. You have to be the biggest shit eater possible to like it.
If Terra Formars got Madhouse, then I'd rest easy knowing that all 3, TF, AgK, and Jojo are in competent hands, and proceed to hype myself.
Yeah, fuck you.
>reanimating the original Gundam story
>when it's the anniversary of G Gundam
Fuck you, Sunrise/Bamco.
Oh, you poor soul.
Are you implying AssClass shouldn't get an anime? Have you seen the OVA? It was great
Kizu,the origin and assassination classroom haven't been confirmed yet though.
This anon is going to never kill himself at this rate
Even Sunrise realizes how shitty G Gundam was
The Origin has been confirmed, hasn't it? And so has Kizu. Have you not seen the cm's for it?
They are both anime that won't come out this year, that's why I said so. Besides you forgot Ping Pong.
Kizu was due 2011 at first.
>Have you not seen the cm's for it?
I did two years ago.
The Origin was confirmed a while back.
Shut your whore mouth
It hasn't. The old pic that floated around saying it would air this year was photoshopped. If we don't get any news at animejapan then expect it next year.
>Even Sunrise realizes how shitty G Gundam was
Are you retarded? You realize those kits sell extremely well, right?
That'd probably hold more weight if we actually had some info about it instead of being told its coming after nearly 2 years.
>Still no Ping Pong
Sorry, I'm unfamiliar with pingpong.
Does anyone have hope for the Sailor Moot reboot project?
It's a great manga being adapted by a great director this spring. Not to mention the mangaka and director are practically made for each other. Educate yourself.
Might as well add mekaku city actors,SAO 2 and one other show. Then it'll have the list of all the shows /a/ will lose their shit over.
>I reccomend you don't even start it. It's really bad and boring. Say what you want about SAO, but it was a million times more entertaining than this piece of crap.
Komachi better be voiced by Nakata.
No game no life? Black Bullet?
Nice forecasting powers, faggot
n and t aren't even on the same side of the keyboard, what the fuck happened?
Black bullet is SnK in space without the same popularity behind it
>Psycho Pass 2
Somebody likes Mahouka?
Just marathoned this when I heard the anime was greenlit, I now find humor in nigger roaches.
It is a great manga by the guy who did Tekkon Kinkreet and Takemitsu Zamurai, and directed by the guy who directed/helped direct Tatami Galaxy, Kaiba, Kemonozume, and a couple of great shorts. I can't imagine any way the anime will be anything less than great.
Please don't tell me you're actually listening to the /a/ "SAO 3.0" hivemind
>Psycho Pass 2
Oh come on, Black Bullet is at least a little better than SnK.
I read the manga, it's boring and uninteresting. The characters are bland and generic.
SAO at least was fun.
It's more popular than SAO, Mahouka, and AssClass. It'll be airing far sooner than AssClass, Origin, or Kizu.
>Introduce another character's bug surgery
>2-3 pages hyping the shit out of its abilities and strength
>Next page is her getting punched so hard half of her body explodes
Found the problem
Neither of those two have been confirmed for this year. And at the rate it's going PP S2 is unlikely to air this year.
Kisu is never going to happen, give up, anon.
>It's more popular than SAO, Mahouka
No. And AssClass hasn't even been confirmed so obviously.
HxH is ending as well since for Togashi Playing Dragon Quest takes higher priority than drawing the manga
Neither has half the list.
>HxH is ending as well
They have material for another cour or two after Quimera ends so no.
I was talking about on /a/, obviously.
And that's the point behind Psycho Pass S2 deserving a spot more than it.
I can't see how the novels could be better, but I'm still watching the anime. I hope we can talk later this year.
can't wait for the scene with the bear taking a bite off the delicious manlet six pack.
I wish this manga had more male nudity. The russian general is 10/10.
He's also still the editor for kuroko no basket and has two kids to take care of.
I heard somewhere that Mahouka was pretty much the anime version of Atlas Shrugged? Is this true?
PP's /a/ fanbase isn't very big. SAO and Mahouka will get a lot more attention, especially since a lot of people probably dropped PP.
Giganiggas are strong.
>I can't see how the novels could be better
That's like saying "I watched the F/SN anime I don't know how the VN could be better"
Should we make a thread pretending the first episode just aired and we all pretend to hate it?
>He's also still the editor for kuroko no basket
I hope thy get a good narrator.
Psycho Pass was hyped up a lot while it was airing. Probably the most talked about show in Fall 2012 (maybe) and winter 2013.
>Kuroko no Basuke editor
>since a lot of people probably dropped PP.
I didn't watched PP on release but marathoed in one go, the plot and pacing was tight save for 1 or 2 episodes.
what was the reaction on /a/ back then?
If thy narrator is a hack, whilt thy animu also be sheit?
Christmas was shaved!
Yep. It was said in the guidebook of the series by the author. And he mentioned that.
The problems with the FSN anime were:
>atmosphere in general
The manga doesn't seem to fuck up any of those, and it seems to tell the story pretty much the same. If you are saying it's shit you might as well tell me why.
>Oda has 2 kids to take care of
>Oda's wife isn't filthy rich so he can't bribe editors to get away with submitting half-assed doodles.
>Oda was hospitalized because he neglected his health just to keep working like a mule.
Yeah, fuck Togashi. His manga isn't even that great to begin with.
>yfw narrator from Kaiji
PP was my favorite show last year, really looking forward to the inevitable S2 and watching it with you faggots.
Oda could do the same as Togashi. Togashi just doesn't care that's why he does it, he isn't bribing anyone. And nobody cares about the doodles, they get fixed after all
Does the novel have completely different characters and plot? Otherwise, eh
You are a faggot for not knowing Fumihiko Tachiki for his name.
Oda wasn't fucked in the ass by WSJ requesting another arc of his popular manga and the cancelling the shit out of it.
Togashi was also sick and had a paralized hand for a long time.
Togashi is no saint but you can't compare him to Oda's situation at all.
Kaiji narrator or I'm not watching it
Akame ga Kill will have every episode titled "Kill the X", so it's going to be called the edgiest by /v/
Sidonia no Kishi is also airing next season, though /a/ doesn't seem to care at all, I am pretty excited. It being cg is disappointing, but I enjoyed the Arpeggio of Blue Steel adaption even though it was all cg as well. I know a lot of people are upset with the manga in the first place because it is a lot simpler and straightforward than Nihei's other manga, but those people need to get the stick out of their assess because if Nihei can do what he wants, and if he wants to have fun with some bizarre space harem than he certainly can.
I wonder who they will get to do the JOHJing
I wonder how hard tumblr will rage impotently against "those black monsters" and the false rape claim flashback etc etc
>the false rape claim flashback
That shit was awful. Too bad it was just a forced sobstory. It still hit hard.
I would have prefered a properly done Blame!.
Still fine with SnK.
I like a lot of the flashbacks, especially the Mexico one, but the fact that earth has not evolved at all in 500 years pisses me off sometimes.
You'd think schools would use tablets instead of textbooks, etc etc
Honestly, I don't think a good Blame anime is even possible - I don't know exactly how to explain this, but one of the reasons Blame was so good was the fact that it was manga in the first place, I don't think it would have worked in any other medium, nor will it ever.
Is there a better translation than the one I'm reading on Batoto?
Shit reads really weird sometimes, like it's full of mistakes.
Imagine this anime imported in america by 4kids
>I guess this will be ruining 2015?
Titan S2 is more likely
