Will there be an anime that could pull off a Battle Royale-esque story perfectly?
No because "Battle Royale-esque" stories as a genre are pretty much inherently shit; it's to be expected, especially when the primary motivation is to just copy Battle Royale to whatever extent.
Even Battle Royale, which has an excuse to be like Battle Royale, couldn't even avoid the shittyness that comes with being like Battle Royale.
Exactly this. It's all sort of mildly entertaining, but they're all just the same sort of thing. If someone is going to succeed at it, it's definitely not going to be anime and it won't bear much similarity to existing franchise.
Well, I believe the (pretty good) manga battle royale can't and will never have a decent anime adaptation.
I mean, it's too dark, too sexual, too bloody, to pass even with censorship, and the drawing style is too old school to be correctly reproduced today.
What is /a/'s opinion on this?
I'll dump some random Battle Royale pages then.
A huuuuuge slut. Tome 8 was her climax, iirc.
Yep, but I liked him. He wasn't that refined though, and Mitsuko was a better crazy character.
Battle Royale, as in the movie, the book and then the manga in the order I experienced them, was a huge part of my teens, I fucking loved it.
Even though it seems a little thin on the ground however many years later, I'd still love to see an anime made of it.
Hell, as bad as it would be, it would still be better than the 70% or so shit that fills up any given season these days.
He's one year older
Had to repeat the year
cause he was the winner of the previous battle royale, but the injuries made him lose an year. Talk about shit luck.Spoiler for actual big fucking spoiler
He did it on purpose too
>'"It's a good story that Takami is telling", Giffen said. "What I do is go in and make bad scenes that much worse. I loved the movie of Battle Royale, and also love the manga. I just wanted to do it right. I wanted to do justice to it, and I knew I couldn't get away with doing a straight translation, because it would be horrifyingly bad."'
In the novel only the winner is shown, to spread paranoia, but in the english manga it's a reality show that people watch for entertainment, like in The Hunger Games
>in the english manga it's a reality show that people watch for entertainment
Which makes fuck all sense. If that shit was broadcast like reality tv, meaning they'd be under constant visual surveillance, Nimura's secret plans to fuck up the game would've died right in their infancy together with all conspirators. He caught the game masters by surprise precisely because they had only locations and sound to work with.
Reading comprehension. What you're saying doesn't contradict what the other Anon said. The BR program itself could only work with locations and sound. Because of this, the plan worked because the BR Program didn't have visuals of what was going on and thus couldn't see their plan.
That's the point, anon. They didn't figure it out, because they only had Nimura's location and whatever sounds he made. If the game masters had cameras everywhere to broadcast and observe what happens, Nimura's secrecy would've been completely futile. But that wasn't the case. Therefore, the manga's english translation creates a gaping plot whole with the claim the BR program is set up as some sort of reality tv entertainment.
This got really weird. See, in the novel and the movie, the big tragedy is that Hiroyuki is trying to find the girl he has a crush on. (Who, incidentally, is NOT his super-hot childhood friend.)
She shoots him by accident, and he has just enough time to tell her: "I love you...Hurk-!" before he dies.
In the manga, he actually meets up with her, and he meets Kiriyama. AND THEN THEY HAVE A KUNG-FU DUEL. Immediately after that this escalates to a fight with actual chi powers. It was incredibly out-of-genre, but so heartfelt it was great.
I'm glad I read the manga's German edition which doesn't have those issues and left the story as it was. Which is to say, there's no reality tv broadcast.
And a bunch of satellite pictures taken to investigate if the bodies are where they're supposed to be isn't quite the same as live footage from a thousand different angles presented to a million watchful eyes.
Why haven't you still read a book your gf got you indulging in your weeb interests?
Yes, it's pretty good.
At least the italian translation was good, I don't know if they messed something up in the english one.
I liked this guy's art but he hasn't done anything I else big ever since BR.
