More people should watch anime raw. Both sides of the debate are missing the point of it.
The only faults here were that they announced something they did not have full confidence in in the first place and that they made this statement with legendarily bad timing. I don't see any other reason to be upset here.
They didn't like where it was headed. That sounds legitimate, simple, and clear enough to me.
I've said it before: I would rather them not release anything than insult the fans with a substandard followup.
I would probably be upset if I actually cared about this series, but not by much.
Normally this would be very demeaning to foreign tourists, but Miku isn't real so it doesn't count.
Those changes don't sound minor to me.
But does it name which one Nathan Garcia goes to?
I just liked how we got to see the characters up-close instead of relying on visual novel-style static portraits during dialogue.
Am I the only one who was happy to see Mami canned?
I would apply as I have plenty to say about anime, but you know.
For the sake of standardization, there should be only one design, ever. All other variants should be very small variations on the standard, universally accepted image, or else you have chaos.
Does anyone remember the fiasco with Klonoa? For their sake, just leave it alone. It's not like anyone outside the target audience is going to appreciate any of the changes made.
Am I the only one still supremely creeped out by the show's premise?
You have it all wrong. We can't afford to let even more people in. Don't you realize that if we let more people in on the secret, it won't be a secret anymore??!!
If it's as positive as you say, they would do well to research them and not make them look any worse than they do. Imagine if someone unfamiliar with everything presented saw this and asked their bookstore for manjas to start with. If they were in earshot of the regular readers, they would be on the news the next day. Ignorant promotion is no better than ignorant slander, because it doesn't help the image the exact way the insiders want it to.
That is not my opinion, but watch at least one person here agree with it.
A-nymes and Manjas. Gotta get on those.
And here I thought I was being clever with "magna". I never thought to call it that.
Mass media cluelessness is the only upshot of these things.
