So /a/nts, what did you think of the manga Blame? I thought it was a really unique manga that stood out to me a lot. It was a really amazing read, and I really hope it gets an anime since Sidonia no Kishi got one.
>>
I'm on ch46 and I don't know what the fuck is going on.

and I love it
>>
I read it completely for the 4th time with nujabes playing in the background. It was even better than the 3rd time.
>>
It won't get an anime, it doesn't have the same type of merchandising opportunity Sidonia had and if it was getting one it would have been announced alongside the new print.
Its a really good journey, but I won't reread it again till someone scans those new reprints. The scans available are awful.

Stuff happens before the story starts. Killy is trying to shut down the producting/expansion of the City by finding net terminal genes to access some. There are sects of humans and killer shit across, the only reoccuring one was the one trying to kill humans without the net terminal genes who are long past their original reason for existing.
>>
Isn't Sidonia going to have like little shots of animated Blame! inside of it? Like the characters in Sidonia are watching an animated version of Blame! in universe?

There was only one chapter IIRC that had that, they were watching a movie of Blame.

I read it every night as I fall asleep. It's the only manga I've ever re-read and I've done it about 10 times now and it just gets better with each consecutive reading.
>>
>>124130880
It actually was an edgy manga using the actual definition of edgy. It's still great though.
>>
>>124130990
It wasn't "edgy" at all. It was set in a bleak world where bad things happen because that's how it is. That isn't edgy.
>>
>>124130179

It made me think of Autocthon from Exalted.

Now all I can imagine of Autocthon is BLAME's Mega City.

I love me some Nihei threads but they tend to always turn into Sidonia threads. I wanna know everyone's favorite Nihei waifu, thats not in Sidonia .
>>
>>124131161
edgy - at the forefront of a trend; experimental or avant-garde.

I would definitely say that fits BLAME! The actual definition of edgy not the shit people throw around on here like how /v/ uses hipster.
>>
It really is the perfect fit for an anime.

The action scenes sort of jump around too much in the manga, and half of it all is walking alongside mega-structures.
>>
>>124130179
>what did you think of the manga Blame?
It's my favourite. Best I've ever read.

>>124132683
Probably Nishu.
>>
>>124132930
I agree that the action panels are horrible at times. Doesn't help that the manga itself gets very confusing later on. I'll have to re read it some day.
>>
>>124132930
>It really is the perfect fit for an anime.
There is hardly any dialog for the first half of the series and there would be entire episodes of Killy just wandering around. I love Blame! but it would make a really shitty anime.

But that's the point.

It's an adaptation into a visual medium, no one wants to sit through exposition.
>>
>>124130179
Overrated shit.
Nihei can't into writing.
Art could be better.

Threadly reminder that Papa Nihei did this book so that his daughter will notice her father's works instead of following the artist's that are fans of Nihei works.

Assuming they speed up the walking around BLAME! does have a lot of action and would be nice to watch. Completely correct about the dialogue though it's mostly a visual story.
>>
>>124133083
I think it would be fantastic if they got a writer who can do monologues well.
Though I guess Killy doesn't actually think all that much.
Wonder what you could really do to make it an interesting watch.

BLAME remind me of those animated anime shorts in Liquid Television, there was little to no plot, characterization, or dialogue, but stuff happened, and yet it was still cool despite it all.
>>
>>124133054
I personally wouldn't mind that at all. If you've seen Serial Experiments Lain, there is barely any talking at all in that anime for the first few episodes.
>>
>>124133249
It would just be a bunch of killy exploring shit and fighting people, along with some actual plot every once and a while.
>>
>>124133249
>Wonder what you could really do to make it an interesting watch.
Tons of time skips or they could just start the anime with his ride to the Capitol. Once Cibo shows up things get a bit more talkative and the action really picks up.
>>
>>124133083
Don't be ignorant.
Are you saying there are only dialogue heavy anime?
That dialogue is an essential part of the medium?
Why does Blame work even though it doesn't have a lot of dialogue? You should have said something along the lines of

>It would probably be unpopular

This can work if someone with an actual brain is the director. Not every show needs to have a lot of dialogue or exposition.
>>
>>124133336
That much is the obvious route.
There's a lot more possibility than just that if you sway a bit from the manga.
