>>158675001 I think he was anonymous
"Although it is commonly believed that Spike is dead from his fatal wounds, Shinichiro Watanabe, the creator, never actually confirmed the character's death. In a 2006 interview with Watanabe, he stated: "I've never officially said that he died. At this point, I can tell you that I'm not sure if he's alive or dead.""
Go fuck yourself for ruining my mood
I'm one of those people who doesn't really believe you can ruin a 'concluded' series with an extra season, but at the same time I'd fucking hate to see Cowboy Bebop with modern animation and a shitty story.
What story would there be to ruin? "Oh yeah there was this syndicate that did things and this guy didn't like me so much" with most of the episodes being pointless stupid shit. Fucking 420 shrooms exs dee, mature anime for a mature person like myself? The irony of Toonamifags is insane.
Sits at google trying to become the biggest jackass of all time. I'm almost certain every single assblast google has caused in the last couple years were his ideas.
But it bring dat money in BOI
Did he have, dare I say, good taste?
Do you also believe that kyoani invented moe?
He has survived worse things in the show, like his first fight with vicious. Suffered about the same level of damage as he did in the last epsiode and then gets thrown out like the third/fourth story of the cathedral.
I do think it would be interesting to see what Spike does with his life next assuming he does survive since the only woman he loved is truly dead, but at the same time creating a sequel would ruin the ending for everyone who thinks he is dead. And although I guess I wouldn't mind a sequel, Im in the "hes dead" camp. It just works better that way.
Not much to say. /a/ liked him for his cool beard, egalitarian taste, being an old ass guy and still taking hikes and watching chinese cartoons. The videos haven't aged well due to the poor audio equipment but many are passable and he provided some interesting insight into each series he reviewed. He wasn't a giant faggot who just said what he liked but looked into the director, writer, studio and even soundtrack authors to make a better review and provide background for the show. He will be missed.
>I do think it would be interesting to see what Spike does with his life next
And I think that's the start of where things come from.
If Spike did actually survive, then the shooting star is for the part of him that died when he closed the book on the gang. He's able to start over on a blank slate, basically a whole new person.
I personally think he did die, but I could always see it both ways.
There is none that I've found. The text basically is just commentary on the movie brochure and how it's supposed to depict a metaphorical invisible wall between Spike and Electra.
"I thought it might be interesting to have a wall as if it's not there. What do you call it? A state of mind where no psychological wall exists between them. I tried to express that they can understand each other."
And apparently Faye's VA "shrieked 'what is this?'"
The movie was like one long episode and Vincent was one-dimensional compared to Vicious, but if there was ever a continuation I'd hope that it builds more on Spike and Electra's relationship because it was a good starting point for someone who could actually allow him to move past his attachment to Julia and have a life that doesn't purely revolve around her and his past.
