Since CGI has failed and I highly doubt we will ever see a live action movie about it. what do you guys think about an anime about Warhammer 40.000?
Really though, I'd watch it. Has enough lore to be a good one. Especially if it doesn't focus on a cast but instead focuses on a different race/warband/chapter every couple of episodes.
I think they did good job with that. I'm saying it from non anime fan perceptive (I dislike anime at point for when I started liking Tau). They take inspiration and eastern themes but don't overdo this and they don't feel weebo race.
Also they have other appeal, like being least grimdark race, like they are more like genue good guys than other races what is refreshing. They are inversion of cliche where humanity are small race with imaginative thinking and progress while aliens had stagnated empire. They are alliance of various races, and are more pragmatic than others.
Also it's funny how Tau don't have over sized mechs or don't use melee weapons, what would you expect from race inpired by anime.
Well when you consider exactly what manga it was that inspired the tau, the absence of melee weapons makes perfect sense.
Either way the Eldar are all things considered the far more typically animu faction than the Tau, and would generally be better subjects for an anime adaption.
It's probably something that will never happen, plus is W40k even popular in nipland?
Maybe it could have happened long ago, like that Starship troopers OVA adaptation, but it will need a lot of effort now. If it somehow happened I would actually like to see production I.G work on it.
This reminds me of when I was looking for F/Z LN and found some obscure butcher LN where he was talking about Warhammer and Fighting fantasy in the postscript.
>W40k even popular in nipland?
40k isn't very popular primarily due to model costs as well as how intense the compeoition is when it comes to sci-fi models.
But from what I have heard WHFRP is one of the most popular tabletop RPG systems in all of nippon.
An anime about Comissar Ciaphas Cain's shenanigans, with lots of fanservice by the mixed regiment would be fun.
Then if we want more grimpderp, Inquisition Wars, and we would have Meh'Lindi as delicious brown.
More dakka dakka? the crusade for the Sabbat worls with Gaun'ts Ghosts(yea yea it really kinda pisses on the fluf).
I think this three series would be the most entertaining for anime adaptation
I've heard it's a brutal trpg.
If only your quads were one of the unmbers of chaos we could say _____ wills it. But, I don't think we will ever see one. It's super niche and made by a group that isn't Japanese so I doubt they would attempt to pick it up. Plus, I have no idea how you could do fan service in 40k
>there are plebs that like 40k
>let alone like it enough to post on a anime image board
Doesn't surprise me, the lore of that universe seems to appeal to males in their late teens, early 20's. Mostly neckbeard in nature, maybe a lot of black shirts.
>Plus, I have no idea how you could do fan service in 40k
Be imaginative. Okay that it depends on with whom are we working with, but it should be relatively easy to do with IG/SoB/Slaneeshi clustist/Rogue Trader and Tau.
> Tau don't use melee weapons,
They have kroots for that.
You clearly haven't been keeping up with the game then because these days Kroot are cover camping snipers.
Farsight is the only thing in the entire codex that's actually good at melee.
Reminds me of this:
>don't have over sized mechs
When was the last time you played tau?
Shoujou style rabukom about a sister of battle who has to juggle her feelings for the different members of a deatchwatch marine squad while simultaneously helping them to purge witches, xenos and traitors to the Emperor's light?
>CGI has failed
The Emprah protects
No way in hell you'd get anything even remotely close to that quality for a longer feature. It works fine for a couple of minutes long intro to a game.
Proof: the ultramarines movie
>the ultramarines movie
Why did you remind me?
Quads confirm Warhammer anime.
But how would the anime elaborate on the clusterfuck that is the Warhammer lore.
Isn't everything inevitable coming to an end because tyranid swarm the size of galaxy is running away from some even nastier shit.
Not to mention humans are fucked the second emprah leaves his body since humankind can no longer use warp drive by then.
No idea how the plot progresses in WH40K, by books? I read wiki couple years back when dark crusade and soulstorm came out and I played them & had interest in the lore because of this.
Thats due to the setting though. With 10.000 worlds to chose from the only way to actually really influence plot is either a new dark crusade, a major chapter like the ones that took the legion names going heretic or being wiped out somehow or by introducing a whole new race or a new hive fleet or something equally major.
To progress the overall plot you have to literally use galaxy shattering events, which is hard to do.
Nah, you just need the flying can of dubstep space whales from Star Trek IV to show up over Earth.
>WUB WUB WUB WUB WUB WUB WUB WUB
>Emps's life support fails
>no more Warp access for humanity
We forget that there are mixed and female only regiments in the Imperial Guard.
This makes me want to commit heresy.
Personal preference is pic related but with no actual objective basis. Think they'd make for an interesting chapter to have an anime about... Buuut we all know that THE most /a/ chapter out there are the
>Episode with villain/monster of the week or something
>Can not be killed by conventional means
>Is literally invincible
>Angry Marines show up and break the fourth wall by popping through the screen and into the writer's work area
>Proceed to murder the writers for making them put up with this shit
>Pop back into the episode and save the day
poor little guardsman is the lone survivor of his regiment but is rescued by a squad of battle sisters. He has invaluable information that must be delivered or something (to prevent his execution for cowardice or something) so they're in for a long journey.
