True. But it could have been it's own movie, not a part of a trilogy, in which two of the films are retelling of season one.

I agree. I can only think that they made those because they knew they would sell. They don't even have the excuse that SNK had that there wasn't enough manga for a second season. But as long as they keep the main four creators the same I am sure they will put quality first.

SNK now has like 9 spin off mangas. There's an article about it. It's getting out of hand.

Wow, that maybe as much as the Madoka manga spin offs.

Yeah, but Madoka isn't from Manga roots, it's an original anime. It's also ingrained deep in the lore of the Madoka universe that there are multiple universe's. Attack on Titan's plot structure is pretty linear in comparison. Madoka has also been out longer in the anime world, but overall has been around a less amount of times. Attack on Titan only really picked up speed when it was adapted into an anime.

I'm not sure what the investment in Madoka was, but I'm pretty sure it was built to support it's multiverse structure from the ground up. It could just be coincidence, but nothing come out the over that well baked by accident. On the other side, some of the Attack on Titan spin offs make little sense. Not so much to it's cannon, but it's existence in general. It's like the Evangelion spin-offs all over again.

But it doesn't matter how you look at either of the two, it's still milking something for every penny. It's just one was cynically designed to be that way and the other was picked up off the street in it's early years. All in all, I don't care about the intention, as long as I, (the end user) enjoy's the product, it's win,win.

Well, I suppose I'll just keep reading the Madoka spin offs and try to get into SNK more since it seems a very interesting show and manga.

The Madoka spinoffs are so good though. I honestly wished they would have made some of them into OVAs. Also, the writer once made a joke saying that if there was ever a season 2 he would want it to be a slice of life. Partly because he felt like he killed off a bunch of great slice of life characters and partly because he thought it would be a hilarious way to troll people. I personally hope that they make a slice of life as well as a season 2. I guess it might be kind of bad that I want something to be more of a cash cow but if they can promise no drop in quality I would say go for it!

Slice of life? That'd be interesting to see just for fun! Like, a spin off/alternate universe where we see our characters in normal everyday situations. It would be something calming to see. As you know I'm all for a season 2 after the events of the third movie, but since Gen Urobuchi is working on one or two other things right now, it may be a while yet. For me, it seems like sometimes the manga spin offs take a real long while to translate, so since the third movie I haven't seen any of the new ones yet, but I think I'll get around to them very soon.

The manga based on the series sucked greatly. But the manga based on the movie actually looks really good and I would not mind having it. I am seriously considering paying the ridiculous price to get the limited edition box set just because it looks so so nice.

Watched the first episode of the Terraformars ova. It was okay I guess. The fight scenes were awesome when it actually shows you some fighting. Honestly the way it was edited is terrible. I'm just lucky that I read the Manga before otherwise I would have no idea what was going on. They cut during the absolute worst times and play scenes that have no relevance to the story. Not to mention it just drops you right into the mission. No scene where they discover mars is breathable. No scene where it explains the abilities of each member of bug 2. All in all it felt very rushed and took a large chunk of the Manga out. How they plan in fitting this into 26 episodes is beyond me. At this rate it'll barely fit into 10 if they keep cutting important dialog and scenes out

Finally finished season one of aesthetica of a rogue hero, gotta say that I love it. OI like that they handle his OP ness with levity and still have characters who seem crafty en8ugh to beat him. I also love to see characters who actually HAVE AN INTEREST IN FEMALES , and don't always act like they are some kind of chaste monk


I mean seriously , every damn anime has that blank face, easily replacible guy with no sex drive inexplicably surrounded by cute girls who he is almost unaware of.
ButI like shows like HOTD and AoaRH where the character is more of a real fuckin person, sadly japan only cares about sales in japan, and unlike how geek culture is here, the majority of sales I japan come from their equivelent of neckbeards, the people who spend all day in a basement and buy ungodly amounts of merchandise are their market, which was fine until japan started marketing to them, and then they started to become the people making decisions, and anime itself.

ysee HOTD is only coming back because it did well here, japan sales sucked.

so its kinda fucking sad that the fucking neckbeards are being marketed to, but that explains why most main characters these days are so inhuman and chaste, how nomal can a guy who rarely sees people try to make someone else, how is a character gonna react around girls when the creator and or the fans have no idea how to deal with em.

The state of anime sucks right now. If somebody could make a show like avatar, with the no hold barredness of japan, then id be set for a year or so, maybe 3.

Y'know I kinda hate Avatar these days for how it pretty much forced peoples expectation so high when it comes to having good anime. That & a certain someone who made cash-cow vlogs on the series along with a f***ing abysmal review of the adaptation movie kinda outright killed off whatever love I had for the series.

Not much to contribute. But Ari. Your avatar is styling. I heard season two of Attack on Titan is being made. But some say it's a fake source so I donno.

God damn, SAO... You really know how to milk one episode after another. I'm not sure if it's just cliff hanger love or your makers are really convinced that if an episode doesn't end on one nobody will watch the next one.

Also, DG is invisible/teleporting now. Add that to all the unlikely and overpowered abilities he has to have. To be fair, he's dealing with god-among-gamers Kirito, who beats the game maker in his very own game through sheer willpower, so I guess they have to make DG cheat-level strong. But still, it seems so improbable. And don't even get me started on his gun and Sinon... I had hoped this episode would finally make some headway in plot, but apparently it's basically the same situation the last episode ended on.

Thanks man. Seems like it's been a while since I was here. Actually, as much as people would like for that to be true, what they are actually working on are two recap movies. There isn't enough material for a second season just yet but once this arc finishes there will be.

You wouldn't happen to be talking about that guy with the glasses would you? What don't you like about avatar? The last season was SO good. Sure Korra season two was a massive disappointment but it had some great parts to it. It opened strong and had a really good origin story. The movie adaptation was just a write off, fans are collectively better off burying it in there memory for the sake of their sanity.

Don't I know it. But they need something to pay off on the most lucrative name today while waiting for the manga to update. It would be way worse if they tried to write filler content

@ari-6

Maybe I should've phrased it better. I don't hate Avatar: TLAB I actually really liked it at one point. It's just I don't think it's this super awesome omaigawd show everyone parades it around. The only real reason I see why it's so acclaimed is because it was Nick's last great original cartoon before they went nuts & either started making horribly redundant shows (Sanjay & Craig, & Breadwinners) or just getting hack writers to ruin something good (Spongebob).

& Yes I was refereeing to Doug Walker of TGWTG. Why I hate his review of the TLAB movie by M.Night & his general direction with the character is a-whole-nother rant that isn't related to this thread.

Keep in mind it's this new stuff where Doug turns what should be a 20 minute review into a sitcom, is generally turning the NC into a preachy jackass who basically is "Trying to get through Hollywoods skull that they can be better if they try!" & thinks ostracizing certain fanbases is the true path of comedy.

Yeah it's Japanese. GARO was created by Toku legend Keita Amemiya (Director & monster designer of Kamen Rider ZO, J, Mechanical Violater Hakaider, several episodes of Chojin Sentai Jetman & The creator of Kido Keji Jiban). Unlike the likes of Kamen Rider or Super Sentai which were targeted for Younger audiences GARO is more targeted for an older audience.

The plot (at least for the first 2 series, movies & special) follows Kouga Saejima as he follows his duties as the Makai Knight Garo to hunt & kill demonic creatures called Horrors (who were designed by Toku illumni Yasushi Nirasawa) while also trying to help a girl named Kaoru Mitsuki (A struggling painter & our female lead) who is stained with Horror blood which will kill her in 100 days. Later down the road we're introduced to Rei Suzumura, The Silver Fanged Knight Zero who has his own plot thread about hunting down a Makai Knight who killed his lover & was so popular that he got a few specials to star in.
