>>121531005 The Manga is better because of the ending and because it captures the message of the novel, how he becomes a souless killing maschine, better. Film still is good as long as the action lasts, worth watching when you liked the manga/novel.
It's been some time since I watched it but once your blood comes in contact with the alpha's or omega's you BECOME them. He was the alpha the whole movie before dying at the end and mixing his blood with the omega thus gaining the ability to reset time. When he resets time the real omega doesn't exist anymore, because it's him and every alien dies.
And the book end was better? They achieved nothing. None of what they did mattered one bit. The MC traded places with Rita to become a hollow poster boy for the war. The battles continue, the looping continues, eventually someone will replace the MC too. That's soo interesting.
>>121534000 You must be 14 years old for missing the point of the ending completely and wanting a generic, forced, and shitty happy ending where the MC gets the girl, because you can't enjoy a story without self-inserting.
>>121534389 > A story with a bittersweet ending is shit and has got no point
He finally managed to do what he wanted to since the start of the story : escaping the loops. Besides, he added at the end that no mimic will ever be able to kill him now, the same way that happened for Rita. Still makes me laugh how we go from the unkillable slaughter machine of the original/manga to the movie with a shitty Rita that gets killed almost everytime and almost become a burden at some point. Way to go Tom Cruise.
There are plenty of well done downer endings out there, that still manage to tell a meaningful story and offer a worthwhile experience. The end of AYNIK was not one. It was abrupt, awkward and meaningless.
>You're so defensive
And you're an idiot incapable of a meaningful conversation.
>>121534440 You seems to not understand the difference between reasonable ending that may not have happy outcome, but surely have some conclusion to main story point. Ending that leads to nowhere and simply made to shock and surprise the audience, make them debating about the outcome.
>>121534617 >The end of AYNIK was not one. It was abrupt, awkward and meaningless. Why? >And you're an idiot incapable of a meaningful conversation. What, with you? Why would I even try after your first retarded post?
>>121534617 >>121534648 You don't get it. The ending was about the irony of the outcome. He won. he escaped the loops. But for that to happen, he lost someone he ended up falling in love and should never have met without the loops that made him suffer so much.
But he still accepted Rita's wish who wanted to die, and took his place to save humanity. That was cruel and yet beautiful.
He escaped a single loop. Unlike in the movie, the war doesn't end there. In the next battle, he will loop again until he kills all the enemies on his own, and so on, until he has wiped out all the mimics in the world, or until someone else gets the looping power from an alpha and kills him. He killed the girl he loved and gained nothing. It's a shit job, but someone's gotta do it, that's all.
>>121534962 No he won't. The loop only happens when the special mimic gets killed. Anyway, he's so skilled he won't be killed anymore. There is no point in showing off the rest like a classic action story.
And to begin with, he always was a soldier that could die on the battlefield anytime.
>>121535075 And he didn't, accepted reality and moved on. He was mature about his choice. Tough Rita did forced him "a bit". But staying in the loops would be insulting her who has been fighting alone and for humanity for so long.
The movie was better. It's more like groundhogs day meets Independence D-day, and instead of headaches like the manga he starts getting visions which invests you a bit more in the aliens and brings the whole at war thing together better. The manga doesn't really cover interpersonal relationships at all, even though it's pretty much the best part of the entire concept.
>>121536045 Movie totally fuck up the craziness related to being trapped in one day over and over again, and even make it comical. The only moment when it gets sad is because he can't save Rita, which also get a terrible nerf since we're at it.
>>121536045 the whole book is about him going from a kid who ran away from home and kind of ended up in the army into becoming a vengeful killing machine. Like halfway where he runs into the hot girl and when she offers him sex he is like "no thanks gotta train". The only time he even cares about Rita is when they talk about how they can break the loop, later they care about eachother because he can find understanding from her.
Also in the book they explicitly tell you whats going on. There are a few chapters where they tell you the origin of the aliens.
