Should we expect more space themed anime because of Star Wars hype?
We are already getting new Macross. It's no coincidence.
Of course not.
Hell, the only Star Wars reference in anime/manga I can think of offhand is this one where some girl in a Vader helmet gets so mad at her sister for eating her pudding she pulls out a lightsaber.
Did you know he's a One Piece fan?
Daicon IV aside, there are some anime with SW references. In Dengeki Oshioki Musume Gootaman there is a sumo guy literally named Dark Vader with an appropriate mask for example.
As long as moe faggots keep digging into kawaii uguuness above plots and characters, hardly.
The most you might see are little girls wearing a star wars custome, because nobody in the anime industry expects an anime fan to understand anything but BOOBS. Anything more complex than that is a financial risk not worth taking.
>Anything more complex than that is a financial risk not worth taking.
Given that the primary purpose of Star Wars as a franchise is merchandising (you want some simple evidence? Lucas took the royalties deal over the flat fee deal when he created star wars). It didn't start with jar jar like some people like to complain, star wars didn't "sell out" with the prequels or the newest film, that was the purpose since its inception. Remember the ewoks caravan of courage? caravan of courage 2? remember the fuckin star wars christmas special? or the ewoks cartoon?
I swear, I almost feel like anyone who cries out for the 'sanctity' and 'meaning' or backstory over whatever shallow marketing ploy of the moment is some kid who is barely familiar with the franchise and simply trying to act like a "purist" because they think it'll make them seem more mature or sophisticated since it's and "old" franchise.
SW at its core was ALWAYS shallow fanservice and merchandising.
Seriously, this is like if 20 years from now some 15 year old is talking about how the original transformers movies were theatrical cultural gems and the new ones sold out and suck.
>has only boobs in their head
well who doesn't
Exactly the point, they are children shows.
And any children's show is more sophisticated than MUH BOOBS.
Which includes shonen.
It's the difference between no plot(=your moeshit) vs little plot (=kids shows)
That's one hell of a level to degenerate into.
You are basically at an infantile state, similar to a baby's where you only care about sucking your mothers breasts. That is indeed below a kid's level of intelligence.
Just kill yourself, woman. Just because star wars is a children's show doesn't mean it's a good one. It's garbage than requires no intelligence and no taste. Keep shilling you kike movie though.
what if they were moe-chlorians instead and like whenever the jedi or sith person accumulates enough they super sayin into a cute little girl form with like superpowers and shit
I'm not going to sue you.
I'm going to look at you as if you just said something incredibly stupid.
Space anime is always popular
Even if it's fucking boring like that show about those Space Pirates
They should do a star wars anime, where like the MC is some sith lord dude with the big breathy helmet and everything, but he never gets anything evil done because he has a whole bunch of cute little loli apprentices that area always goofing off and he's more busy keeping them happy and out of trouble to train them in the dark side or do his own stuff. And they all call him darth-onii-chan or something
All those little details. Daicon IV a best.
I love this site
>>new SW movie pretty much failed in Asia
I'm gonna assume it did better in more international places like Hong Kong, Singapore, and Korea while it will do "okay" in Japan. Nips love their own shit way too much.
It's a very modern movie. You know the one with jokes every 10-30 minutes to break up the tension. The movie felt really weird for me because it was that but still has the old Star Wars tropes (like the shitty Windows Movie Maker transitions).
I think every Star Wars character has appeared in Urusei Yatsura at least once.
It's good but falls off towards the end.
Main character is a textbook example of a mary sue though. Shit like
>never left her planet
>pilots the millenium falcon almost as good as han fucking solo
>never got any kind of jedi training
>can command storm troopers through the force
