    Well, it seems that at the current pace Netoge will end by the chapter 16 of the manga (if is only 12 episodes), which i don't really know where it stands on the light novel.

    From what i know the light novel has already ended or is going to end. So in theory they have plenty material to adapt if they want to.

    I'm hearing Nisokei has 3 chapters left so that one Ondera fan in here can finally sudoku when Chitoge wins.

    Is Scarlett Johansson being the lead in Ghost In The Shell really a problem? Considering that anime characters are heavily westernised in appearance? I don't really see a problem with it.

    I don't think she will be able to capture the personality.

    bout as much as any other actress. i don't really take any of the criticisms seriously considering many wanted to replace her with the girl from Pacific Rim, never mind the fact she speaks in very soft, tiny, and heavily accented voice. but hey shes asian so its cool right?

    don't really care either way as that series bored me to tears since i was a kid sneaking adult swim late at night. oh well if it does bomb which is 98% likely, then its not going to be just from one casting role.

    For me, the issue is that they decided to keep the character Japanese, rather than westernize her like the rest of the story, but still cast a white woman for it. Seems pretty weird, even if it is an anime adaptation. We all know live action adaptations typical don't carry over too well when it comes to looks (3DPD, after all).

    I felt Netoge episode two was only okay. I wasn't feeling it as much as the first episode, but I'll keep watching for now. Student President/Guild Master got some huge ass fuckin' tiddy tho JFC.

    The screenshots don't look terrible, but my issue is she seems timid in the screen shots and that isn't who the major is. Johansson's acting chops have always been rather lacking. The major is a very strong lead character and I'm not convinced Scarlet has the ability to demonstrate that or even has that vision for her. Need way more information to say anything for certain. Her hair doesn't look to bad and in general I think Scarlet lips don't fit the idea of the major well as they just scream a level of femininity that I wouldn't expect of the major, but maybe in action she will be a strong enough screen presence to make me forget that. Looks like they are going more black / blue with her hair then purple. The blue I'm seeing could just be the lighting from the environment.

    They can explain everything away with 'it is a robot body' but I don't need to be seeing her slouch and hesitate. The major is someone who takes control and gets shit done.

    Shouldn't matter, the Major's body (and face) is supposed to be a generic, off the shelf cyborg body on the outside (to hide all the secret military upgrades within). The film could simply write it off as that look being a generic look for female cyborg bodies.

    I'm not really in the loop on it but is Masamune or Kenji Kamiyama at least working on the film with them? I'd imagine with one or both of them on board, whoever is in charge of making the film would have to bend over backwards to make it a colossal fuck up of an adaptation.

    you can have the author of the material standing right beside them the entire time and It won't make a difference because they're completley out of their element and won't know how to fix any of it.

    The author of GITS is just making porn so I doubt he really gives a shit about the IP.
    Masamune Shirow has been always making hentai, even when working on his own series, he also did porn of his own work, which of course, i welcomed.

    I am aware. I'm just saying he's probably moved on from caring about the IP at this point.

    Given that those franchises keep giving him money i doubt that he doesn't care.

    Seeing a white girl casted as a character with a japanese name is dumb as fuck regardless of the context. They were better off changing the whole setting to a fictional LA or big US city and creating their own take.

    On another note, Kabaneri 2 has been subbed on some streaming sites. Was another great ep. Waiting for better subs and quality to rewatch again.

    So I'm in the unusual place of thinking a larger number of shows than usual might be pretty good this season, and I don't have enough time to watch that many actively. What are people really liking so far?

    Already watching Kabeneri, Stray Dogs, and Hero Academy.

    Because it is.

    Re: Zero has been good every episode. Elsa is gangster, and so is Reinhardt. Like the rules set forth in this fantasy world with the mana sharing. Guess things are gonna get real in the next episode.

    i really liked that ending moment. he was extremely pissed and wanted to save them partly just to say "fuck you live in dishonor by being saved by the one you threw away" however right after words he broke down crying as it was leaving him. that's real human writing and i honestly teared up at that despite knowing he would be saved.

    So, you know how people keep pictures of loved ones in the wallet? Spouse, children whatever. Gross, 3 dimensional meat sacks?

    Why don't they make credit card sized character portraits of your waifu? Like, print it on a credit card like material, then on one side you have a large, glossy high rez picture of them. Other side you could have some stats, a signature, a quote of some kind. Maybe some kind of icon or symbol that represents them. If they belong to an idol group, you could have the group's logo in holographic foil. You can number them, and sell 1-10000 as limited edition for 30 bucks a pop (they would cost like...30 cents to make). Regular edition is 20. Sell protective sleeves at 5 bucks for a pack of 3. Then as popularity takes off, you can sell special wallets that have dozens of fold out, clear card holders. Obviously that is a prime target for even MORE licensed goods.

    It would be great. When you are having one of those tough and unthankful days, working long hours, or just wondering what is the point of it all...You can just open up your wallet and see Maki Nishikino's face be reminded of what makes life worth living.
