So that liveaction show…



  • That looks… Interesting. Any thoughts?



  • Meiko actually looks really attractive in live-action, instead of some sort of swollen malformed balloon animal.



  • If they ever dub it, I pretty sure that they'll reuse the same cast again. I'm looking forward to watch it.



  • For the live action of this show I wonder if they have to us CG for Joe when they have to go and arm wrestle the VP in the series. The reason being is that in the anime series Joe is really skinny. So I can't wait and see if studio is going to do with the live action.

    Nah. They're just going to lock the actor up for 2 weeks without food. Easier on the budget for similar results.



  • Also, not to make a second post, but I feel like enough time has passed and a different subject, what are people's thoughts on the LA version? It's out now.

    edit 1 Okay, so I'll post more later when I'm able to fully process what I just watched. But, basically, it felt like a porno. This wasn't hurt by the fact in the end of the episode they advertised a link to the "full set from the bathe scene" online.

    edit 2 Dear God. Episode 2 is already out. I have to see more.



  • The girls aren't bad actors but the guys WAY over act, I get it is a manga adaptation over exaggeration is to be expected but there is such a thing as too much, and what's his faces bleach job is horrible… Just horrible. Like seriously they couldn't take him to a place where they could do it properly.

    Its so bad its detracting, even more so than the overacting... Ok maybe thats an over exaggeration but still, like seriously in secondary school Drama they taught me that in a TV performance minor facial expressions and body language will suffice as the camera will be close enough to pick them up well, in live performances however large motions and facial expressions should be used as your audience will not be able to see them otherwise.

    SERIOUSLY SECONDARY SCHOOL DRAMA CLASS! Although I do understand it can be hard to draw the line between being bombastic and overacting, but the guys certainly crossed it, In manga and anime its easy to tow that line as your drawing it you can look from the outside in and make a more unbiased assessment where as if its you there and then then your more likely to think something is ok when its not.

    Ah well, was interested when I saw this but it looks like I will just have to read the manga if I want more, but from what I can tell from skimming the manga quickly there isn't much difference between the anime adaptation and the manga so a second season is not out of the question depending upon the sales, and really the ending was quite satisfying so I expected it to be a anime original ending but it looks like it might not be, well it seems like it was the manga ending but between the scene in the headmasters office and the Undercount Student Cancel being put in prison there is a lot more that wasn't shown or was only very briefly shown but its filler / character introduction seems like it could have filled an episode so maybe at least there will be an OVA.

    And seriously if this doesn't get a second season I am going to be soooooooooo freaking angry about Highschool DXD getting another season as its not even that good, and Is This A Zombie doesn't get more than 2... wtf is that about.

    Edit; Almost fimshed the manga and it will never be animated or if it is it will diverge completely from the source material because of reasons which I wont go into because that would that would include spoilers. Its not that it bad per say, but it is incomprehensible and although you may think this is not a big thing for anime its too racy for anime, like we are talking like a Hentai level here and its how the plot is resolved.

    Spoilers for SAO season 3 and season 1 second half

    !
    Although SAO S3 will have a double rape scene so maybe I'm wrong… Hope they change that sense tbh because even I was really uncomfortable reading it never mind watching it, as well as the main villain going around naked for the hole last battle. I'm making SAO season 3 sound really bad but apart from those two things if its anything like the light novels its going to be brilliant but it could be improved by changing those two things, and I'm no fan of SAO season 1 and 2.
    ! Like I wouldn't even mind it if the main villain was just naked for like a minute before she just created a dress because she would have the power to do so, and shes in her room for the hole fight so just putting a new dress on wouldn't be difficult, but the double rape scene just needs to go all together, there is a reason for it being there but I don't think using rape as a plot device is particularly tasteful to say the least.
    ! Its not as bad as the reason it was used in the second half of SAO S1 basically just to make you hate the bad guy, I can't explain the reason why its more valid without completely spoiling the plot of season 3 but there were certainly other less offensive ways it could have been done.
    ! And its a shame because SAO S3 has some really strong women in it, including the main villain, but calling her a women is kinda not really accurate as I wouldn't even class her as human really.



  • My thoughts on this,

    Been at prison school ever since release (subscribed for many months at funimation and just found out they had forums lololol)
    and the anime was good.

    The live action is really fascinating honestly. Actors are on point and made the characters truly alive.
    Kiyoshi's actor is really good and the voice reactions he does is so similar to kiyoshi. But the one that caught my eye is Midorikawa Hana's actress. Out of the cast she's the one that stood out (for me at least) she hit hana's character perfectly. Her antics and the way she talks were perfect, hell, even the way she gets mad and shouts were on sync with Hana. That alone made me "Wow wtf these Actors are perfect for the characters" And seeing it follow the story line makes it even more awesome. I just hope it doesn't end fast tho because seeing how fast things are progressing its getting really far (haven't read the manga but planning to) already and i hope it still continues to follow the end of the manga. Overall i really loved the show it's amazing.

    Yup hahaha. Meiko's actress is really beautiful. But Hana still LOL
