Were your expectations met with the One Punch Man adaptation compared to the Murata-illustrated manga?
Yeah, it definitely felt like a good show and earned its place as a classic for being a shounen deconstruction.
The problem is fitting everything into a 20 minute show each episode and trying to pace it properly
There are scenes that go on too long. A lack of movement and too many static shots at times.
It shows how difficult adaptions can be even if the source material is simple enough. I still think it's at least good and the Boros fight was great.
>it didn't live up to the manga's art
What? The manga has above average art with some excellent pages and a bad use of digital editing. The anime gathers some of the best animators of the industry and overall has excellent animation for a TV anime.
The anime looks way better than the manga.
Who is he shilling for? Madhouse?
When did this shit become acceptble on /a/? At least on /v/ it's slightly plausible, why would anyone involved in animation or manga production in Japan give a shit about promoting their shit on 4chan? They barely care about the western audience at all, let alone a tiny niche who just pirate shit anyway.
It would've been 10/10 for me if they had scenes like this.
I was disappointed by the spaceship reveal, where Saitama is standing on the roof of the Hero Association building, and the frame where Saitama is shown leaving the atmosphere, in both cases I feel like they should've been zoomed out more to showcase the appropriate level of size.
Show me a sequence in the manga that looks better than that :
It was great. I get people wanna bitch about how it didn't 1:1 imitate the key scenes from the anime, but considering the extremely far beyond average quality of the animation, to do in a week or less time what Murata took months to draw is definitely an unrealistic want.
One Punch Man is an extreme outlier of a show. As a TV anime, on top of that, a manga adaptation, with the level of quality it has? It basically shouldn't even exist, and yet it does.
Of course the drawings are not as polished as the manga, when one scene in the manga takes a few pages you need dozens of drawings for the animation. Here most of the animated scenes were better than the manga.
I wasn't expecting much from the animation, but the stills disappointed me thoroughly.
there's was also quite a bit of just plain QUALITY in minor scenes that i probably would have overlooked if it was an adaptation of any other manga.
Overall? Mostly yes.
But there are niggles.
Such as the Genos vs Saitama fight having Genos fly and the body check into the cliff face being an obvious afterimage where as the manga kept it hush until the end of his combo when he realised.
Just little things like that.
ITT people who have no idea what budget or time constraints are, are nitpicking the most trivial shit for the sake of sounding elitist, have no fucking clue how hard it is to transition good art from a manga which has a couple of drawings to a single scene that has more drawings than the entire manga and basically have no idea what the fuck they're talking about. Basically, you're being the guy from pic related. Never change, /a/.
You're exactly right about how retarded it is to compare one frame of a manga to a still of an animated show, however I think most people here just need at least one thing against the anime just to be hipster faggots
Absolutely. It was great.
Anyone who says otherwise is being a contrarian faggot.
Excellent reply, coming from a guy triggered that Madhouse made the stripes on Saitama's underwear horizontal instead of vertical like they were in the manga. Now please curb stump yourself.
One LN writer happened to go to /vg/ for MMO threads, because he happened to speak English well enough for it. That doesn't mean entire animation studios or publishers like Shueisha give a shit about selling their shit here. No one here pays for anything.
The manga was animated better in every instance.
They definitely got his size right, I remember Boros was supposed to be 240 cm and he didn't look like it in the manga. Here he looks fucking huge, especially in that moment before he knocks Saitama towards the ground
It was great overall but they fucked up the season finale with fillershit in the end. Should've teased
To me Boros felt very underwhelming and in general disappointed by the anime having already read the manga and webcomic.
They really nailed the Licenseless Rider and Sea King fight though, and it's really the only part you can say is better experienced with the anime.
I was largely unimpressed by a lot of it, which is not to say I thought it was bad, it's just that adapting the version drawn by Murata is an exceptionally daunting task for the same reason Berserk will never get a proper anime: he's too damn good. No matter how you slice it you're in for some amount of disappointment. If there is one thing that I don't think anyone can feasibly deny though, is that the fight with Boros was fucking mind-blowing. I was crossing my fingers hoping they'd do him proper justice, and they actually managed to one-up the manga somehow, I can honestly say I felt a few things watching that that I didn't feel from the original. For me personally it was enough to make up for any and all misgivings I had with the anime up until then. The sparring match with Genos was incredible as well, but I have a hard time deciding which version was better there because I'm a total sucker for those flipbook pages he does.
>Garou and his based choreography
I'm wary of Murata committing sudoku but there needs to be a second season ASAP. So far there's enough content for about 8 eps, right?
The anime was too straightforward of an adaption, I think there were plenty of scenes where they could have really gone crazy with it and thrown convention out the window. They could have really played more with the art contrast between simplistic and heavily detailed instead of playing the adaption so safe.
I could be dead wrong and it could have not worked at all but I feel like there were missed opportunities and too many scenes that dragged with little movement. It was just a very safe adaption.
The madhouse adaption was fine
BONES working on Mob 100 also seems like a good fit.
>quirky yet intriguing shows
One Punch Man
>quirky yet intriguing series
how did he somehow get the best studios to work on his shit when other mangaka's aren't so lucky is what I wanna know. he also managed to get one of the arguably best mangaka's to redraw his whole series
Ant Man was mediocrity personified, keep Marvel as far away from this as possible. They'd be more interested in what one liners and bonding moments they could throw in over actually making something worth watching.
My only problem with the anime is that it felt a bit too fast in some areas. Like pic related for example. They never let you take the time to take in the destruction and devastation of the attacks or the destrutive power behind those attacks. It's just a quick second of pic related that can easily be missed and to where you need to press pause just to catch it in the anime.
>wanting ugly 3Dactors to play as the characters
Yeah the interesting thing about the manga is Murata will draw entire scenes full of double spread single panels going frame by frame, essentially, and it really adds to the epic scale. The anime doesn't slow down at times like these, so it's harder to appreciate these moments in general when they happen.
IMO that's a main advantage of manga over anime. They can never have a two page spread.
>It was what Star Guy did.
the flipbook pages aren't in the physical copies of the manga. The studio based the adaption off of that. That's why the sparring fight was completely different in the anime. I thought this has already been established.
i ahd gven up on anime and this won me back. thats how good it was
>His art look less polished after Garou was introduced. I think he's gotten tired of it already.
What. Have you seen that glorious fucking centipede, pretty much all other character designs and how much he redraws Garou himself per stream/volume?
MA is gonna look fucking amazing.
Yes it was great obviously not good as the manga because the anime couldn't capture the great style Murata does but that's not Madhouse fault it's just really difficult to do.
The Boros fight was still fucking great.
>dat atmospheric lighting
I always have to remind myself that Garou vs Saitama happens at night just before sunrise and the hype becomes unreal.
Mamare was great. Too bad he got picked up for tax evasion.
Last I heard he paid back the taxes but his popularity took a large drop from it. He hasn't even posted on twitter in over a year
That headquarters building was a giant mostly-featureless monolith. I doubt it was going to have obvious air vents and stuff to draw on the top, it's just a flat matte black slab.
I was only dissapointed at sea king, felt a bit rushed and they cut out scenes
Boros easily made up for it though
No but it did offer some pretty great scenes and still managed to be enjoyable and probably in my top ten because of it. It also added some nice tidbits of worldbuilding that both the manga and webcomic didn't have though certain scenes didn't match up or were paced as well as the manga.
It's existence is fully justified however by that opening song.
Thankfully, he's always only used ustream.
Am I imagining things or is this an actually halfway decent OPM thread for such a provocative OP? Feels like the shitposting age for this series has finally blown over. Who took the bullet, Bokumachi?
I'd say it sufficed.
I started with the webcomic, then read Murata, then saw the series.
It definitely met the hype levels, but the manga was better.
I'm honestly much more excited for Mob Psycho 100's anime to come out. Seeing ONE's style of art animated should be a blast.
> I don't like fun
This thread is boring.
By miles. Saitama is pretty backburner since theres nothing he fights for the most part of 'season 2'. He shows up for Machine God, who Genos beats, a couple of times to punk Garou by just pure proximity and then continues to be nowhere until the MA stuff, which actually fits WHO Saitama is perfectly since he's nearly always late and acts without witnesses, purely coincidentally, because they either dead or ran.
Well Garou is the protag of this arc after all.
Though the arc is getting expanded and ONE is giving both Saitama and Garou more attention, to balance things out a bit.
yeah, seems fair to do this tournament since Saitama won't be here for most of the MA arc which is as long as everything for far. Damn, this battle will be a long night. Murata was already taking his sweet long time to redraws plenty of shit for arcs like the Boros one who didn't have long fighting scenes, just imagine how it will go here.
Though fighting about it, there are chances mangaonly fags won't enjoy it as much for the simple fact the release date will be way longer, kind of how like bleach is way more enjoyable in tankobon version.
They have different pages for these, although most of them are the same.
i'm wondering if this won't really be the highlight of the serie. It's not really sure we'll get another threat of this scale again, even with the hype around metal Knight and God.
Since we were talking about S2 and Murata specifically stated that he'll work hard for it, I'm actually not sure the entire Garou arc would fit in one season. There are 40 webcomic chapters Murata's yet to redraw. Forty.
So if another season is greenlit we'll probably only get the Hero Hunter part, which is why we're stuck in the middle of never-ending extra mini-arcs right now. I suspect there will be even more to come after the tournament and wolf/dog shenanigans.
MA will certainly take a while to complete in the manga, with or without anime.
Eh, first time I'm seeing this pic, Rover looks spooky as fuck. Wasn't Garou shitting himself at first though when he saw nim?
And post more recently done redraws of the MA like this.
I think it's pretty clear the season 2 will end with this new prologue round with the MA with the new monsters and the tournament. Then season 3 will be fully about the webcomic MA arc.
Garou merely thought Rover was a sizeable dog and was excited to train him via punching him through the floor. No big deal.
Also Rover is cute, please.
If you think the OPM anime is average, it means that you only watch the cream of each season, which means you don't watch very much anime.
Either that or you have very bad taste in anime and think that phantom world is AOTYAY
While I wish they'd done shot-for-shot stuff like>>137286622...
I can't be angry they didn't. Some of the stuff Murata draws would be fucking insane to include in a 24-fps anime. That Sonic fight would have needed to be keyframers all throughout, no tweeners allowed.
Overall, the anime wasn't "the perfect anime version of this thing I kinda like that I pictured", but it more than did credit to the source material.
>Then season 3 will be fully about the webcomic MA arc.
That's what I think as well. It might have to be expanded too though because there are too many fights there. Fights go by fairly quickly in anime.
I wish there was a way to adapt the whole arc in one smooth season but thanks to all the expansions right now it's gonna be longer than 1 cour but not quite enough for 2.
Is OPM even that popular? On /a/, at least.
It sold about 10 or 11k right? Which is reasonable but not exceptional. I don't really see many more threads now that the anime has aired. Only the standard amount from when any reasonably popular manga gets an adaptation.
>It's on SnK levels of popularity, anon
In Japan? Not even close.
OPM anime : 11k average so far
SnK anime : 52k average
Manga boost : ~ 250k new readers
SnK boost : ~ 1.3 millions new readers
It's really popular worldwide but it's too soon to see how it compares to SnK.
A disappointment of mine is that the anime was missing some of my favorite visual gags. Stuff that further highlights that it's a parody.
it was like reality matched my vivid imagination for the first time ever
Yeah, I'm fine with it not sounding like a literal car engine, but I think it shouldn't have been so obviously a heartbeat.
Maybe when the engine really revs up it'll sound more intense
No way in hell, Garou rekt his shit and he as got a massive boner for Saitama's strengh. No way they're the same person. At best they're related, but I'm almost sure Mask is related to no one, he just will have a backstory about his hate of monsters and source of his power.
That's wrong actually. The Metal Knight scene had parts clearly based on the gif only scene. Whether the gifs are or aren't in the tankobon doesn't matter when it comes to the level of the animation, they just didn't consider the Sonic part as being enough of a deal to focus so much on it, which was fair enough.
Every time I see this pic, I swear it could be the poster for a romance movie
