On the bright side, that means no jam project OP/ED and the fanservice is going to shift from a snow-based breast focus to a wind-based loli focus and hopefully Kugimiya Rie will voice something.

The Japanese logic is: if you don't want it, don't buy it.
The American logic is, apparently: if you don't want it, demand a reason for its existence.

Live-action remake?
>> No. 31953 [Edit]
Netflix has announced a live-action remake of Cowboy Bebop:

Why the fuck do they feel the need to desecrate everything? Why can't they realise that animation doesn't translate well to live-action?
>> No. 31954 [Edit]
Now why going for the hyperbolic discontentment comments? I'm looking at the responses on that piece of twitter you linked and that's what everyone is doing it. Every time someone releases some adaptation nowadays this happens. It's not like the original needs to be burned and banned forever is it? It's still here, you can watch it any time you want. Besides the producers didn't see a problem selling the rights to Netflix did they? Shouldn't you be angry at them instead? Actually, shouldn't you not be angry at all and just not watch it?

This is actually a great opportunity. Many years ago when they began releasing those Smurfs movies? you know how much merchandise they released for it? I disliked the movies quite a bit but every toy store and book store had Smurfs related stuff for sale. Had a blast with it. Got cool plushies and the missing books I didn't have yet. Then the movies stopped making money and everything was gone again. Same thing happened with Tintin, same thing happened when they launched Pokemon for smartphones. It's a great opportunity to get stuff for cheap.

Not buying would be too silent and unobtrusive.
>> No. 31955 [Edit]
Cowboy Bebop didn't need a live-action remake, nor a Western one at that. It's a pointless attempt at making money, rather than trying to be creative and writing something original. I'm not just directing my anger at Netflix, but also those that made the decision to sell the rights to make a quick buck.

Americans? To make money. Japanese? To cushion up before the inevitable crisis starts in the next 2-3 years.

The current generation of Americans have no respect for animation as an art form, unless it's pseudorealistic 3DCG. To them this is an improvement. It's an awful state of affairs.

I see people take this stance a lot, and get it, and with the exception of starwars you're not wrong. Thing is.. While reboots and unnecessary squeals will often come and go and quickly forgotten. In some cases they can retcon material, add unnecessary details, (either of which which might be for the worse) tarnish the original by association, or ruin the possibility of a proper sequel/remake using the same stories or by changing details that are hard to working around.

In japan, you don't see remakes too often because it's considered an insult to the original creator. It's basically telling them they did something wrong and that you can do the same thing better. This is why out of thousands of anime series out there, there's less than a dozen remakes.
This is why people find it offensive and bothersome when they see announcements for a remake. A teaser trailer recently dropped for a 'live action' lion king remake, and the first thing I see people keep asking is "What's wrong with the original?"
It's insulting to the original works in the way a cheap knock off is, like one of those shovel wear movies that are rushed to dvd while looking and sounding like a more popular movie.
It's one of the reasons why creators go after knock offs with lawsuits, it's misleading and hurts the image of the original product. The creators of something like "Kungfu Panda" don't want kids buying "The Panda Fighter" only to feel disappointed and cheated and resent the franchise. Fans feel the same way, they might love cowboy bebop and hope more people can see it and learn to love it too, what they don't want is for people to be lead astray by an inferior product. Sure the original is still there, but should a new comer watch the movie first, their image of the franchise as well as expectations will be set by the movie, and that's not even mentioning having the story spoiled for them. Even if they decide to watch the anime after watching the movie, the experience will already be ruined for them.
It doesn't help matters at all when we know there's a slim chance in hell it's going to be any good anyway. The record speaks for itself when it comes to live action adaptations of both games and anime.

These materials worked as well as did because they specifically made for the type of media they're in. People will so often claim "the original is better" when it comes to ports and adaptations because by adapting/porting something to an alien medium, you're essentially taking a square peg out of a square hole and trying to j-j-jam it in to a round hole. The only way that's going to work is with some serious modification, and you're going to loose something along the way while being left with a thing that just doesn't fit right.

Don't get me wrong, it's not impossible to make it work. some pegs can be adapted to fit into different holes better than others, and with enough skill and passion you can make one fit really well. Before The Avengers came along, people struggled to make comic books work in live action with more misses than hits. Most of the people being forced to do this in the case of anime much like games however clearly don't have that skill or passion. To them it's just a means to bank off a well known name and some nostalgia while they're at it.
>> No. 31961 [Edit]
I'm not so sure that's limited to just this generation. I believe animation in the US has been seen as something for children for a long time now, with the few animations for ""adults"" being little more than crude poorly drawn comedies, not meant to be taken seriously.
>> No. 31962 [Edit]
I don't see originals getting tarnished by shitty live action movies made in the West. Not in cases where the original is a Japanese anime and the adaptation is some shit Western movie. We've seen plenty of those and nothing was really tarnished. The only thing in your first paragraph I agree with is
>ruin the possibility of a proper sequel/remake using the same stories
But then again I don't think this is true when we're talking about an offshoot shitshow from netflix. If the producers made another anime based on it and it was shit, which can and do happen, then yes, the original tends to get tarnished because now it's a "series" and the "series" suck even though the "first one" was good. That do happen. I don't think anyone will consider CB a "series" now because there's some netflix show about it.

>In japan, you don't see remakes too often because it's considered an insult to the original creator.
Well that's just plain wrong. You do see it often, for starters. Every other season you see some IP making a return in another iteration or getting adapted. You constantly see movies being made based in other media, which is the case here. Second, I've been browsing 2ch for years I never quite saw "insult to the creator" being any prevalent in comparison to the West. I do see it very often in Western boards though, specially if the guy is dead. Then everybody goes for the spinning in his grave joke. I've seen people shitting on Doraemon movies a lot but don't quite remember a guy saying Mr. Fujimoto is spinning in his grave. Now that you mention that, this is in fact very common in the West. Every time some guy fucks up and make a shit movie based on a Lovecraft story people go for the "Glad Lovie is not alive to see this!". Hm, very interesting, thanks for bringing to my attention. Apparently we do love to respect the dead when you get to scorn some other guy doing it. Fucking pathetic.

>Sure the original is still there, but should a new comer watch the movie first, their image of the franchise as well as expectations will be set by the movie, and that's not even mentioning having the story spoiled for them. Even if they decide to watch the anime after watching the movie, the experience will already be ruined for them.
I don't get you guys, or rather, I get you but I just don't like what I see. If people start to get interested in anime you scorn them, call them names, go for the "fucking casuals" insult. Make fun of their tastes, make fan of their ignorance, play the elite tard all the way through. You revel on it. And then proceed to hope every company distributing anime in the West burn to ashes. Not you anon I quoted in particular but you, you know who you are. Then you get completely ignored and fans of the original start to adapt some series they like to other media in their own terms and suddenly you play the protector of the innocent, concerned about new fans leading astray. Unfortunely most of you (not you I'm quoting but you know, you) are hipocrites. Acting as if producers have to personaly consult you to sell their IP, demanding a reason for a piece of media to exist if you don't like it, scorning new fans if it makes you feel like elite or playing heroes concerned with new fans if it gets you the chance on shitting on something. IMO people who do that should learn some inhibition.

But yeah, it's probably going to be really bad. Good thing I don't have to watch it. Now, I'll just get out of the way to the thread can go back to its original intent. Best of luck to all of us.
>> No. 31983 [Edit]
>we're talking about an offshoot shitshow from netflix.
True. If this ends up being crap (which it likely will) it will be forgotten about just as quickly as the live action death note shit was.

>Well that's just plain wrong. You do see it often
What you're seeing are squeals, not remakes. Remakes are retelling of the same story, typically by a different creator. A couple examples are Kanon 06, and full metal alchemist brotherhood. It's a bit debatable if movie/ova retelling count as remakes, which there are indeed a fair amount of out there. Personally I don't count them as remakes but I understand if you do. To me they're more like adaptations from one medium to another (TV -> cinema) while also acting as summaries for the originals, but in the case of something like the Nanoha movie the run time is so close to the original series it can practically be considered a remake.
But yeah I guess the "spinning in their grave" thing is a bit over used.

Myself, I watch a lot of movies so I'm used to seeing old tittles get crappy reboots/remakes. As mentioned the only part that 'does' bother me is the lost potential for something better in their place, which is something adaptations have a higher risk at. If something was successful the first time around, even if the remake fails, they might keep trying to recapture that success. If on the other hand something gets an adaptation and it turns out to be shit, that's it, that's all we get. We've got one shot and if doesn't do well there likely wont be a second chance. It's still a bit sad to think what the super mario brothers movie could have been, and what it could have done for not just game to movie adaptations but the game industry itself... On the other side of the coin you can have bad adaptations which do well financially such as the transformers movies, and because they make money you wont see a proper adaptation made any time soon.

>Unfortunely most of you (not you I'm quoting but you know, you) are hipocrites.
I'm not so sure these are the same people though. Maybe elitist asshole, and protector of the work's integrity, aren't the same person? I'm mostly just guessing what the motivations and thought processes are here anyway.

Honestly this movie is going to be no different than the ghost in the shell movie everyone quickly forgot about, or the deathnote thing netflix did. Same shit different day, nothing to get bent out of shape about. Last I checked Hollywood's take on ghost in the shell didn't ruin the franchise, Arise did that.

Sega… stop

Sega Joins the Pack with "Kemono Friends 3" Smart Phone & Arcade Games

>> No. 32102 [Edit]
It's understandable. They're skipping ahead to 3, perhaps fearing 2's negative reception. Or maybe they kicked someone out of the committee again.
>> No. 32115 [Edit]
To be honest the franchise never really had much of anything else going on besides this project, which is 4 whole movies. There are plenty of other franchises to look at if you want to know what real milking is. Though Eva merchandise is pretty bad I've gotta admit.

After Rebuild 2.0 came out I saw a lot of people saying (/tc/ very much included) they'll kill themselves after the Rebuild project is finished. Bet they figured it'll get done by 2016 or so. I wonder how many of them already killed themselves, how many don't even care about Eva anymore, how many still stick to their plan etc.
>> No. 32121 [Edit]
Yeah I was mainly referring to merchandise. I know they haven't released much media for a long time. outside of the movies the only thing that comes to mind was the eva at school thing with chibi characters? Merchandise and pachinko seems to make them a lot more money than the media side of things so it makes sense to focus more on that
I doubt those people were serious by the way, but there's really no way of knowing but I have gotten the feeling eva is quickly becoming irrelevant to today's youth.
>> No. 32123 [Edit]
>I doubt those people were serious by the way
Frankly I'm very convinced they absolutely meant it, having been in a similar position in the past ('I'll kill myself after...'). Whether they were actually capable of pulling the trigger - quite literally - is a different matter, but again, I'm sure many of them believed what they wrote. I would take this less seriously if it were on 4chan or something but if it's /tc/ of all places...
Anyway, don't wanna derail the topic any further so I'll leave it at that, this isn't really news.
