FUCK HOW COULD THEY END IT JUST LIKE THAT WITH NO DEFINITIVE CONCLUSION?!
We need to do a fucking kickstarter or something to try to garner some support to get a season 3. It's been done before and I'm sure we can do it again. I can't fucking live knowing that they half-assed the last scene with a gainax ending. And if a season 3 is out of the question, then maybe we can get an Eva End of Evangelion or something that can replace episode 26.
I CANT LIVE WITH THIS AOAT ENDING JUST LIKE THAT. ROGER AND DOROTHY DESERVE TO BE HAPPY GOD FUCKING DAMN IT.
Who would be in charge of the kickstarter? Who would contact the folks at CN/Adult Swim like Jason DeMarco? Who would contact Chiaki Konaka to do the storyboard? What's the goal of the project? Fund a season 3 or have an EoE-style movie on a limited budget? And if CN/Adult Swim don't agree to both proposals, what happens to the money?
>NO DEFINITIVE CONCLUSION
I'm guessing you didn't figure out what the "we have come to terms" meant at the end + the different reboots of the simulation etc. meant, or what Angel was, eh?
I agree, it wasn't super conclusive, but if you spent more than a second actually thinking about relationship between Roger, Dorothy, and Angel it would start to make more sense.
>just watching Big O now
I spent enough time thinking about it. The fact that Chiaki's ending was canned and that they were planning a season 3 (before the dvd sales and viewership made that not possible) makes me believe that the anime ending just isn't enough for most fans.
Give up OP, unless you found someone to champion this inside Turner/Time Warner, there is no fucking way this is happening.
A shitton of people just go layed off at Turner, and unless this was poised to make a hundred million dollars no one is going to bother spending a cent trying to get this approved (and by cent, I mean, no one on Time Warner's dime, not even a janitor, will make the necessary legal work to have this happen).
I would love to be wrong.
I feel your pain OP. I really, REALLY do.
But just like me, you'll eventually have to come to the realization that nothing we really care about will be perfect. Not ever.
All you can do is try your best to forget it happened and move on. I did. How did it end? Something about Angel getting in a Big and then everything was a simulation or something.
>some bullshit ending for god knows what reason adult swim thought of
I think the ending really works great.
I don't think you understand the show you like so much.
You should probably watch a few more things then rewatch The Big O.
The answers start right from the beginning of the series and all throughout.
Even the first sentence.
Also I don't think Adult Swim has anything to do with the plot or much of anything other than funding, which further tells me you don't really understand The Big O.
What it needs is a rebuild series, except instead of fucking it up, they fix what they fucked up
No trust me, I understand the series pretty well. A lot of people, not just me, are troubled by the fact that they had a 3rd season planned and intentionally ended the 2nd season with a cliffhanger. That and Chiaki's ending was dropped. If they used Chiaki's alternative ending, then I'm sure most fans would've had some form of closure.
>FUCK HOW COULD THEY END IT JUST LIKE THAT WITH NO DEFINITIVE CONCLUSION?!
It was never meant ot have a conclusion. They structured it like those British serials like UFO and Thunderbirds.
There's that whole episode where they're talking about the question, "If I wasn't an android would you fall in love with me?" (I'm definitively not getting that quote right so don't blame me if it's wrong.) Then at the end Dorothy was with Roger and she had more colour in her skin and expression on her eyes. It's been awhile since I watched it but I hope you rewatch it yourself, or I hope this jogs your memory. I'm pretty sure Konaka says so on his website somewhere?
>Even thinking about changing the OST
I would murder every one that touched it
I don't think it's a cliff hanger anon.
Yeah the 3rd season got cancelled, but doesn't mean it's a cliff hanger.
They literally wrap everything up.
All the mystery that had been going on the entire series got explained.
"You're not an actor, Roger Smith"
"Cast in the name of God"
CAST. I would underline it if I could.
These are just small details.
There's so much to this series people don't get.
How much do you actually know about The Big O?
Go watch babbys first art film and it might make you see more of the details in the series
>too abstract for the series to be effectively concluded
But it's been abstract from the beginning of the series.
How else was it going to wrap up all its motifs?
I don't think Rosewater getting kicked out of town and Roger and Dorothy getting married, as an ending, really satiates the series more advanced concepts.
