Saikano was the last controversial anime to ever been created. It was cancelled on all but one network prior to the first episode even airing. It was also one of the very few series where the Chinese government went out of it's way to prosecute bootleggers after going against their will of not releasing the series. If you can name a series more recent that's just as controversial I'd like to hear it.
Was at any good?
Animu sux, manga is superior as always.
>Saikano was the last controversial anime to ever been created.
Saikano was controversial? Why? How?
The hell was it so controversial for? I just found it insufferably dull over-blown, like it was trying to beat you over the head with the "war is bad" message it didn't even try to make sense.
The chinese will ban anything. It's not like it's not common.
sounds like gundam to me sir
>If you can name a series more recent that's just as controversial I'd like to hear it
Boku no Bibletoads. B& by the UN and every tape was destroyed.
Saikano was stupid
Lol lets turn a useless highschool girl into a WMD. Why you ask, because its hilarious
What on earth was it so controversial for? I just found it insufferably dull and preachy without actually making me care about the characters or what was going on.
Oh,and I forgot to say Kodomo no Jikan.
>banned in united states
>last controversial anime to ever been created
>last controversial anime
the anime aired six years ago, dumbass
for the lulz
Guys, did we just got trolled?
What's controversial about Saikano?
I just read the Wikipedia article, and boy does it sound stupid.
Having sex with WMDs?
Holy shit, that would make an awesome anime.
How the fuck could you not like Saikano? It was brilliant
Watched the animu, read the manga. Enjoyed it quite a bit.
then watch saikano, thats what its about
Well there we go...
it was made by jc staff
Because everyone who died was lucky to get out of such a shitty anime. I mean, it was like a distillation of Japan's guilt complex (LOL, the whole world hates us for no good reason!) and quite possibly the most nonsensical weapon of mass destruction ever (it'll only work by making it out of a retard-moe high school girl, who will continue to attend school between missions!).
I swear you find the smallest of details to bitch about, don't you.
This anon makes a good point. The setting is stupid. I stopped watching at ep 5 or 6, but then...
>Having sex with WMDs?
and now all my worries were washed away.
Having sex with WMDs rulez. BEST MANGA EVER.
Only reason it would be remotely controversial would be that Chise looks 14 and the male lead looks 30
Which is out of the normal range of anime/manga appearances how, exactly?
I liked the manga better.
That's the plot.
I am definitely watching this.
school days nice boat
idk, the males I've seen usually look in their 20's. Gray haired guy had gray hair.
He's about to get some, and his bitch disintegrates?
I can totally relate.
Subtle, believable, just enough rage inducing and confusion to short circuit your critical thinking skills. 9/10
>How the fuck could you like Saikano? It was lame
Saikano is shit
i remember /a/ discussing about the incestuous koi kaze anime and how one of the episode was taken out from public television because it focused on the subject of 'divorce'.
srsly Japan, wtf?
And how the fuck did THAT happen?
saikano thread is saikano
WMDs can get shot, take a cannon shell, fly through the air like a F-22...
... but apparently, "too human" movements cause them to snap at certain parts.
Saikano sucks, the premise is ridiculous and contrived. Why the hell did they build her like that? Emotions, compassion and all that shit are not exactly desirable qualities in a weapon. What good is a guided missile if it won't launch because it's whining that it doesn't want to kill?
Anyway, trying to apply any kind of logic to this tripe makes my head hurt. Goodbye.
tl;dr: NERD RAGE!!!
elfen lied is deeper than this shit.
You don't want smart weapons, you want weapons that just know how to get where they're going. I thought Dark Star would have taught us that already
