>Making a movie out of a manga that's already over.
>They have also confirmed a second season for a 3-volume novel (not LN) that is also finished.
From a business standpoint, why are they doing this?
I did. I thought it was great. Everyone seems butthurt that the girl didn't end up with mc. I thought it was way more realistic that she went to go do her own thing in Tokyo, while mc stayed back home. She'll probably end up dating someone way cooler from Tokyo who isn't all hung up on her being deaf, and her past of being bullied.
Waiting until the end of the end to adapt it is probably better for sales anyway, as people who see the movie and then want to read the source material won't have to wait indefinitely for it to finish.
I didn't read the manga but judging by the last chapter that was posted here it looked like they were together. She was in a kimono and he in a suit holding hands. Was that the end or did I make as something?
All late night TV anime adaptations are commercials for the source material. I don't think movies ever do this though. If it's airing in theaters they're planning to earn money with ticket sales at the bare minimum.
It is an award winning manga.
KnK isn't going to be an otaku bait like chuu2, amaburi or that new color haremshit, they made the movie to garner awards and critical acclaim. They are going after the ghibli market.
Euphonium is heavily sponsored by Yamaha and considering they are the top dog in the production committee, they get to keep all the cash.
Kyoani has ceased to be kadokawa slave.
I only read the oneshot and enjoyed it when there was first threads for it.
I actually didn't know there was an entire manga until this announcement.
I still haven't read the manga though. Shouganai
I liked the manga but you know that the anime is going to generate into shitoosting.
Blog posts with sad bullying stories. Tumblr is going to go crazy over the innocent handicapped girl that is bullied.
Or maybe I am just paranoid.
