It is known.
Yes, I would tenderly love a crazy chick like Shiki. She's easily my favorite female anime grill.
I imagine Shiki either being a completely passive dead fish or living up to the name with borderline rape.
So i'm reading the LN and how comes their is only 3 volumes translated?
There were a good 7 movies right?
I'll take the rape.
A lot of people get bored because a couple of the movies are lackluster, namely the 6th, and the best movie isn't until the 5th.
Why are there no torrents for KnK?
I'd watch an entire series with her but nasu probably wrapped everything up and will never have another go at knk.
The only hope is a fan-made mango becoming popular and entertaining(any genre) enough to make an impression on the scale of Prisma Illya.
Checking my PDFs...
>Vol. 1: Overlooking View (I), Homicide Inquiry (II), Remaining Sense of Pain (III)
>Vol. 2: Hollow Shrine (IV), Paradox Spiral (V)
>Vol. 3: Oblivion Recorder (VI) and Homicide Inquiry II (VII)
Three novels with seven stories that got adapted into seven movies by Ufotable.
My PDFs are missing the 8th story, though. With that said, I have seen the 8th movie. Top-quality stuff.
In hindsight I vastly prefer Ryougi from the early movies with rounder chin to the triangular jaw in Mirai Fukuin.
And to answer your question, yes. I would. She would probably kill me though
If she wasn't coerced into it, maybe. I wonder what sort of normal clothes she'd like to wear.
I feel like something like an actual series would ruin it, to be honest. Mirai Fukuin (aside from the last scene with SHIKI) was pretty lackluster and the story was already wrapped up quite well. More SoL shorts along the lines of the Mirai Fukuin BD special cat segment could be good, though.
The old artstyle is definitely better. She also actually had a nose when not seen in profile.
I guess they are shaped a little differently.
It also seems like her eyes and hair are more brownish and less dark grey/blackish in the newer stuff, which, if I recall correctly, isn't consistent with the original novel. Her hair and eyes are both supposed to be very dark, which I definitely prefer.
>not loving the whole of TM
Go and be edgy and divisive someplace else.
There's definitely room for expanding or just going in any direction. Ufotable did a great job hacking together a script from Nasu's nonsense and whoever was in charge of that definitely has the chops for making a series as gits:sac was for the gits movie.
Of course that's a tall order but one can at least dream.
I'd be more than happy if ufotable got busy with mahoyo for next christmas.
>why would you want a Black Lagoon adaptation when it's not even done?
Masochism, I suppose.
>just rewatched all of CP, including the DVD special episode
>that immence sense of sadness sets in again
Fuck that series was enjoyable as all fuck. I love TM's characters dearly.
>adventures of Moezaka
When you put it that way there's literally nothing wrong
>Ufotable did a great job hacking together a script from Nasu's nonsense
Are you referring to Mirai Fukuin specifically? I'm not sure what the deal with the source material there is, but the original three novels were adapted fairly literally (aside from film 6).
Also, interestingly enough, the films were largely directed by different people, which accounts for a lot of the variation in style and quality between them. 5 is an example of an adaptation that stayed true to the source material while successfully incorporating the advantages of the new medium largely thanks to its director.
Another interesting thing to consider is how source material was stretched and compressed to make it fit a roughly 1hr or roughly 2hr window. If I recall correctly, 4 was only about 10 minutes shorter than 3 but was less than half the pagecount of 3. I bet a lot of the pacing issues wouldn't exist if they hadn't had to deal with the theater movie format and done everything as OVAs or something.
Well, she's supposed to be somewhat androgynous-looking
which is part of the appeal.
I'm talking about all of them but full disclosure: I haven't read any of the source material.
I did read a few of Nasu's interviews in which he said what i wrote himself tho. I think it was here http://tsukikan.com/misc/ somewhere like >>133737771 says.
Honestly though, I've had no issues even with Movie 6. Most people who feel strongly about it seem to be like this anon >>133737460 and their objections are probably related to the adaptation rather than standalone work.
I liked it, it provided a good breathing space between two heavier pieces with a rougher tone. Movie 7 is my favourite
Why are girls with shoulder-length black hair the sexiest?
>their objections are probably related to the adaptation rather than standalone work
Fuck you and your weasel word of "most", as now you get to claim anyone who disagrees is just an outlier.
The sixth movie was shit because it was shit, dude. Anything of actual interest was sidelined in order to focus on Azaka.
Pic related is the sexiest.
>was shit because it was shit
>Anything of actual interest
>was sidelined in order to focus on Azaka.
I liked her. She was mad. You seem to be upset as well.
I wouldn't fuck you though, outlier-kun.
>Nasu: In Kara no Kyoukai, the first story, "Overlooking View" (俯瞰風景) is the clumsiest. I've always thought I wanted to do something about it, and I told a staff member, "If we're making this into a movie, I'm going to rewrite the first story; please let me do that." But he said, enthusiastically, "No, I want to work with it the way it is. I want to animate this!"
>Then, when I read the finished script, they'd cut out over half of the unnecessary excess fat and had turned out something more interesting as a story, so I thought, "If it's like this, they don't need me to rewrite it."
>This is blatantly untrue.
It's been years since I've read the books and watched the films, but I remember most things being fairly close, with most of the changes being the omission of characterization elements, not plot elements. Please correct me, though; like I said, I'm operating off of old memories.
>Man, you even contradict yourself.
It's definitely possible to drag stuff out without changing what's actually happening. 4 was full of long, slow shots that were consistent with the atmosphere but extended the runtime without altering the actual material.
I haven't read that particular interview, although I know Nasu has a tendency to discount the value of his own work and play up the contributions of others out of particularly extreme Japanese self-effacement.
>Nasu has a tendency to discount the value of his own work and play up the contributions of others out of particularly extreme Japanese self-effacement.
This means that Fate/Zero was a mistake, but Nasu didn't want to admit out of respect to Urobitchi
Knock it off. Shit on each other over Fate bullshit in a Fate thread.
That would be neat, although more stuff around the time period of the Shiki segments of the Mirai Fukuin specials would also be nice.
>Please correct me, though; like I said, I'm operating off of old memories.
I can come up with a couple arbitrary examples, if you want. In 5's novel, Alba uses some flame magic on the cat familiar, but it is to no effect. They also go to great lengths to explain how magic words work. This is omitted in the movie.
In both versions of 4, Shiki uses her thumb (maybe it was another digit) to trace a line, and her thumb breaks. While it is to no effect in the movie, in the novel is succeeds in cutting the zombie or whatever it was.
There is if you look hard enough for it. Problem is that so many of them are still in moon. Shiki doujins in English are gifts from the almighty.
You wish. Sage for off-topic and demoralizing image.
I'd argue that all of those cases deal mostly with minutae of the magic/cosmology system that aren't really relevant to the core of the narrative. They're the sort of thing that's interesting to know but don't hurt anything much when left out.
Your point is taken, though: to argue this properly I need to rewatch and reread the material, since you can probably pull out plenty more examples I couldn't reasonably try to refute. I guess that's my project for this weekend.
There are a lot of fantastic and super emotionally charged tracks, but I think this will always be my favorite.
>They're the sort of thing that's interesting to know but don't hurt anything much when left out.
I'd agree somewhat, but that's not the point - it makes it not a "literal" adaptation.
I got them from BBT and they're probably still there.
I'd argue that that sort of stuff falls within the wiggle room afforded by variance, but that's getting into arguing semantics and I don't want to do that. You're right-- it's not really a literal adaptation. Can we agree on "fairly good adaptation that does a good job of maintaining the important elements"?
Paradox Spiral is honestly one of the most interesting animated films I've ever seen. I enjoyed all of them except for 6, but 5 was one of the best examples of nonlinear storytelling and using your medium to your advantage I have ever seen.
That image never fails to make me upset
Melodiana is best angel.
