I know we don't agree on things too often, but can we at least agree that Suou is the best DTB girl?
>still getting DtB doujins
If only we got a new season
>lesbian cyber ninja not tied for #1
Horrible. Take a lap.
I'd contract her vagina pussy if you know what I'm saying
Its a mix between how they built up her character in the first season and the OVAs and then just abandoned her in the "second season". Still pisses me off to no avail.
what the fuck happened with this series?
why did bones drop the ball after season 2? did this not do well in Japan? This show had such an intriguing plot and we will never know what the fuck was going on with hell & heaven's gate along with contractor powers and the "fake" sky.
I'm still mad to this day and although fapping to Yin helps ease the pain, I feel that DtB was wasted potential and cause of this I have always hated BONES
At least the first season was super solid but yeah it doesn't make season 2 not incomplete and not a giant misstep from what was set up in the OVAs.
Because the people who were creatively involved with S1 felt that the story was finished and had lost interest in the setting. S2 was a corporate move compelled through top-down pressure and the people responsible for the concept behind the show resented needing to append more to their completed project. This is also why Okada, a writer who's pedigree at the time suggested absolutely nothing towards being suited to handle this kind of series, was selected and given an unhealthy amount of creative influence.
S2 was designed by committee under the assumption that the brand power would be a success overseas and they only needed to focus on expanding their domestic appeal by attaching names to the project and structuring it more like what else was popular (CUTE GIRLS, MAHOU SHOUJO HENSHIN SEQUENCE w/ STOCK FOOTAGE, etc). This is what happens when the creative passion in a series dies.
>This is what happens when the creative passion in a series dies
It *wanted* to die.
They'd made a fucking great show.
There was no reason for more - it had concluded.
If anything I'd have wanted a prequel, which would have been fine since very obviously they knew the history of their own world.
>Because the people who were creatively involved with S1 felt that the story was finished
There's no way they thought this was true considering the massive amount of unanswered questions. Like what the fuck the Gates are.
