JUST HURRY UP AND GIVE US SERIOUS SIDEHOPS
Is his head oval shape or more circular?
>mfw the animation will be shit
>mfw OPM will become so overhyped (more so than it already is) from normalslimes that the classic /a/ hipster backlash happens and everyone starts shitting on it
It's going to be sad when we can't have manga threads anymore.
Especially with the primarily male cast, this is going to turn into snk 2.0 with all the tumblr shipping that entails.
>yfw pilot episode will be on ONE's art style
My life would be complete.
>OPM anime ends
>"Now that the dust has settled, can we agree that this was shit" threads start appearing
We are trapped in an eternal cycle.
>US has digital version of the manga not even paperback hasn't released yet
Why is Viz so slow in releasing volumes
Kodansha, Seven Seas, and Vertical practically have faster releases than fucking Viz
most are caught up with japan expect for Viz
People are expecting the worst studio to adapt it also people who haven't read the manga will flock here because the /a/ elitists hate that.
>People are expecting the worst studio to adapt it
I never really understood this mentality. If the adaptation sucks, then I will ignore it and continue reading the manga.
Not being able to have a good discussion because the threads will be shit will be annoying though.
>The only Studio I think that would adapt this would be Pierrot
Then I remembered Tokyo Ghoul
Let's be honest with ourselves. The manga is DBZ tiers of overrated. But what it has going for it that seperates it from DBZ is that it has muratas god like art and it doesn't take itself too seriously.
There are animators out there who are better than Murata. He's a mangaka first and foremost, his animation won't be as good. All the anime needs is a couple of talented animators to work regularly on it and the action scenes will come out just fine.
We're prepared for the worst
The worst, in this case, being a mediocre or outright bad studio attempting to imitate Murata's style while going full QUALITY with it, failing to capture the attractive visuals of the remake while also being unfaithful to the charm of the original. It will almost certainly be paced awkwardly because the odds of them having enough episodes to adapt faithfully is slim to none, which means we get cut off very early in the story, have a bunch of stuff cut or get a BONES-tier anime original ending.
And being a show with a primarily male cast, primarily focused on that male cast and featuring a feminine man that /a/ is gay for means that, on top of the usual anime-only shittery it will also end up attracting the same kind of fujo tumblrinas that ruin every other popular male-centric series. Be prepared for 24/7 OPM 'gay shipping, fanfiction and poorly drawn western tumblr fanart reposts' General #571: Reddit is Great Edition.
Until they give us any reason to believe otherwise, we're expecting the worst possible case scenario.
>mfw the studio tries so hard to match Murata
>they fail because not enough budget
>ends up being super generic, no QUALITY either
>Saitama has a shonen voice
>shitty original ending
>anime was a mistake
>It's an all male cast so shit posting shipperfag fujos will come in and trash the threads.
That is nonsense if I've ever seen it.
I can't unsee now
I mean it in the sense that he isn't meant to look impressive in costume, the yellow jumpsuit conceals his athletic body and is generally very crude looking, which is why people never take him seriously.
Producer ! I just talked to the animators !
Matsumoto, Ohira, Yoh & Kou, Nishio, Nakamura, Hashimoto, Yamashita, Honda and Fuji are in !
>tfw psuedo-hipsters keep misusing the term "secondaries" because it makes them feel superior somehow
Secondaries are people who claim to like a series but have never consumed any of the media beyond fanart.
>Kubota Chikashi (Shinsekai yori charadesign)
If they use anybody but murata for character design they're actually braindead considering that he has experience working as a character designer for animu and that he's good at it
I don't recall serious art moments turning his suit into bodypaint, unless you're willing to look through the manga for examples. If it's an actual thing, I'll look stupid and that'll be that.
>implying neo-/a/ knows who those are
Still, I'd rather Yamashita NOT be involved.
Hell, if they just follow Murata's paneling that's half decent key animation in itself.
Shiny Shading != Toei
Could as well be Studio 1 or Madhouse. Either is fine with me, though I dunno why Sunrise would take a risk with OPM.
Just because they did character designs doesn't mean they'll do it here. Akio Watanabe is also a prominent character designer, and plenty of times he works as a key animator.
I'd love to see Murata involved like Otomo was for Akira. He knows animation already, and having this sort of hands-on approach means the adaptation will be more faithful. Plus, his pseudo-animation was already damn impressive.
Or whatever the real term is.
You called ?
It's not like he never gets serious. Besides, doodle OPM doesn't look good for posters, ESPECIALLY when you're trying to pitch it to sponsors and shit.
When the anime comes out, I'm sure he'll be more comedic. I mean, that's the point of the show.
He has scenes where he's serious and scenes where he's goofy looking.
Image straight from google, so excuse the watermark
Are you talking about him doing character design for Majin Bone? Because he only did the original chara design, the animation chara design was done by Ryo Onshi.
That said, I would fully expect him to do some key animation on the OPM anime.
not really. It's good because it completely shits on everything you excpect. The writing and pacing is solid, the idea is great and it's just plain funny. People liked it when murata was not doing it.
If you read mob psycho 100 you will see that ONE is actually a really good author that keeps you guessing whats happens and leaves you with a thirst for more.
Is it overrated? Yes.
Is it bad? far from it.
The only thing I don't want is all the redditfags and tumblr cancer to ruin the experience.
We're pre-shitposting so that we can soften the blow in case it's bad.
This works out in the boards over all favor regardless of the actual outcome because it shifts expectations.
If the show is great, and you expected something amazing. Then people will either be mildly happy or just say "Duh, it's OPM!"
If the show is bad, and you expected something awesome. Then the board will explode into a shitposting carnival for the rest of the season
If the show is bad, and you convinced yourself that it was gonna be bad, then you've lost nothing and the only thing left is to wait to see how badly it disappoints.
but if the show is great, and you convinced yourself it was going to be bad, then the entire board will rejoice twice as hard than if it had expected something awesome. Moot will return on the wings of an angel and a new age of happiness will be ushered in for the next few hours.
So even if it seems pessimistic or just plain cynical. What's happening right now is a necessary precaution that can only result in our benefit regardless of the outcome. So just crack a beer open and shitpost about OPM for the sake of /a/
For the rest of the cast it doesn't really matter, but Saitama's gonna have to have his QUALITY/original ONE look about 75% of the time and should only look like he does here when SHIT'S ABOUT TO GET REAL.
Otherwise, the people in charge of the anime would have missed what made OPM so popular in the first place. But I doubt they'll screw this up that badly. They know what OPM is about so I believe they'll stick true to the ONE humor/story while doing their best to put Murata's art in motion.
I don't know anything about this anime, but why is it so overhyped when they can't even draw the main character?
There's no way OPM will get as bad as that shit. OPM's english fanbase was started on /a/. /a/nons were the ones who translated it originally. I doubt it'll go the way of SnK
If it does, that says plenty about us. That we're too lazy to defend something we enjoy and rather would do nothing and let it fall to the crossboarders.
This will just be like Akame Ga Kill. The pre-anime threads were fun and no one was taking the manga so seriously than than the moeshitters watched the anime and shitpost with buzzwords like edgy or bad writing and hate on it for simply being popular.
>Its okay if my show/manga has terrible writing because its Ironic
No, its bad even if they're joking about it. I've seen Akame Ga Kill threads before the anime came out and they were mostly waifuwars with no real discussion, they were just as cancerous as the SnK fanbase even without the cult following of naruto fans that decided to migrate.
Saitama's going to power in so much in the anime, you wont even be able to see his punches.
I'm not comparing the quality of the shows together, I'm saying OPM is going to get the same treatment. Believe it or not Akame threads before the anime were fun and though there was a lot of waifushit in the threads nobody took it seriously and the threads were just hype and fun with all of the "happenings" going on.
And you are crossboarding cancer if you do.
Not that all shows with moe are good, but moeshit in itself is a stupid word used by idiots who generalize everything with cute girls into one category. Most anime have some form of moe.
Sorry that not everyone's into those dark, edgy, mature shows for mature people you're into, /v/.
Jesus, /a/ is full of whiny bitches; I for one hope is good, it's probably not going to be as good as the manga but we haven't seen shit about it yet. Most ppl should just relax, wait and see what happens
No, but your attitude, as well as all the posts being defensive about /v/, seem to imply that.
If you want to not be called /v/, maybe chill with the greentext and the shitposting. That's the real giveaway.
I never defended /v/ you dumbass. Plus you were the one who got offended by the word moeshitters and went on an autismal meme spouting rant. Stop grouping up people just because they don't like shit that you like.
Then you post this in a "OPM is shit" thread and /a/ claims that OPM was overrated shit long before the anime was even announced, that 'true' /a/ has always hated it, and anyone who ever liked it was from /v/, reddit, tumblr, etc. etc.
Put it up on youtube already! I've seen videos linked from there numerous times, but I'm not willing to register to any website to watch stuff. It's beyond me why anybody would prefer that site over YT.
How ironic, considering this started with the word "moeshit". You take offense to being grouped up, but have no problem generalizing everything you don't like as "moeshit cancer".
Fuck off, retard, /v/ or not.
>what killed /a/
That was /a/ from day 1, pretty much.
>HxH narrarator for every scene that happens in mere seconds.
>Best boy wars
Anons, manga fags cannot leave.
Do not use the spoiler tags for shit in the threads, post pages, openly post spoilers.
No animeonly fag would stay in a thread like that.
That is the only way.
There are plenty of fujoshits already reading it, once it is animated they will come.
>but have no problem generalizing everything you don't like as "moeshit cancer
When did I ever say this? Honestly just fuck off already now you're just straight up making shit up. Go watch some high schoolers bake a cake or something or shitpost in an shounen thread for all I care.
There is no complex answer. The answer is simple.
People here are contrarian and pathetic, now it's got an anime, it has a chance of becoming popular and thus people automatically hate it now.
>now it's got an anime, it has a chance of becoming popular and thus people automatically hate it now.
Do you actually believe this?
>. Either is fine with me, though I dunno why Sunrise would take a risk with OPM.
You mean the same studio that did Horizon?! The LN that not even the author thought was possible to adapt properly is doing and adaptation of a popular web comic?!
>hating on cute girls doing cute things
At least keep it to yourself, lest you be called out as a crossboarder. Plenty of people don't like that shit, but when in Rome, do as Romans do.
I would say is more because the anime may attract obnoxious people to OPM threads, and it would probably be threads every single day, making it really circle-jerking
Just like Jojo's threads
>for simply being popular
>this is what 15yo shit eaters actually believe
>Nobody sane of mind goes around looking for awful manga to read ironically
Just imagine. In the future this is what people are going to be saying about OPM soon.
OP by Boom Boom Satellites
in anime most important scenes are made by only one person, an animator that is hired just for that purpose. Sometimes even whole episodes. if you got the budget you can hire good animators for shit like this.
Dubs it will be under-budget Pierrot shit like Beelzebub
If I directed this, we would go immediately over-budget with 1,000,000 USD per episode with a carefully selected Shakespearean English(from England) stage actors as voice actors and two teams of animators to work on the lip syncing for each language. What budget we do not spend, we spend on another group of actors and animators to work on German, French, Portuguese, Korean, and Cantonese. In that order. Russians can be trusted to voice it just fine on their own.
Each disc will be given the option to convert to subtitles with Japanese audio. No "localization" or "censorship" allowed. Either it gets translated in original, or not at all. Jokes and Japanese puns need to be localized to some degree, though.
This would be what I would do.... And we all know that will never happen.
