Jeff Smith should get in contact with a jap stufio to adapt Bone. It already kinda looks like Moomin and the japanese love moomin. Make it like Scott Pilgtim or Edgerunners, animated in japan, distributed by netflix. Can you imagine Bne by studio trigger?

    Scott Pilgrim and Cyberpunk worked for an anime adaptation because of the tone and energy of the source material. Bone, I just have a hard time picturing being done and written by Japanese studios, even comfy fantasy stuff like Frieren leans closer to feeling anime than distinctly western.

    mmph. This shitty thing is, there really isn't a good choice for distribution outside of japan. Netflix, Disney, crunchyroll, amazon, they all have different problems for different reasons.
    For a Bone series specifically, it would really come down to how they do it. Trigger is also maybe not the right choice for studio. Studio bones (ironically) would be a good fit i think.

      While i like the idea (Japan did the only relevant Moomin adaptation which the author approved), there are many other studios which can do a better job. You just exposed yourself as a casual.

      Not even Miyamoto coulf stop them from forcing this shit. What made him think he had a chance? Another reason why asking for israelitellywood for an adaptation is a bad idea

      He’s moronic. There is no artistic integrity involved here. And look, I get what he’s saying; no hackneyed Disney musical element. Not that he doesn’t want a soundtrack to the background, instrumental music. I get that. But it’s moronic.

      I'd like an adaptation in the hopes they come up with a better ending than the comic

      This dude wouldn’t let them add pop music you think he’d allow them to change the ending. This is why publishers try to wrangle rights away quickly so they can just sign it over to a movie studio and cut you a couple checks.

      [...]
      The ending with the final war felt rushed and moronic. The bones don't go through any major character changes besides maybe Smiley Bone being a "dad" now. I really wanted to see a redemption arc for Phoney Bone.

    The comic is good, just read the fricking comic. I don't understand why, after decades upon decades of shitty adaptations, you're still so fricking hungry for more adaptations. None of these streaming services renew, so you'd get a single seasons, it'd probably be computer animated, and you'd be pissed about it.

    It's like you get the shitty monkey's paw wish, and it's awful, and you go "well, that was bad, but I'm sure the next wish will turn out good!" It's damned brain rot.

      Seriously the comic is wonderful. An adaptation would just not even begin to be able to recapture the feel. Do people just think there's more validation if it becomes a crappy cartoon or movie? Frankly those are far worse mediums if you ask me. Just let things be what they are. Actually appreciate and approach things on the medium they were created on.

        they're not the worst, but there is no "best" medium either. and yes, people do think it'll validate it more. they're like those who obsess over impressing people who hate video games with a new crappy game movie adaptation. I guess that replacements song is true.

        I want an animated version of Bone because the comic oozes classic animation vibes and would be prime material for a hairbrained "Let's revive theatrical 2D animation in the west" scheme if they went all in on a trilogy.

    Studio Trigger is like the Platinum Games of anime where they took a load of good talent from a big studio to form a smaller one, put out like one or two good anime and then everyone in the Western world nutted and went OMG STUDIO TRIGGER THE GOAT, WHAT IF TRIGGER MADE [x] ANIME for a decade and tried desperately to ignore how mediocre their output was in general and especially compared to their predecessor. PSG season 2 is almost certainly going to be Trigger's Babylon Fall

        You’re thinking of a stroke which is different. Especially if the HA happened outside of a hospital he’ll be back to normal in a week.

    There is basically zero chance this ever gets adapted now that Netflix passed. In order for a new studio to pick it up, they need to pay Netflix back every dollar plus interest of what Netflix spent on development (which includes what Netflix had to pay WB (which includes what WB had to pay Nick)). It no longer makes any financial sense.

      Not really, when you option something you only have so long to put it into development. After that time period it’s a free agent so to speak.

        I'm definitely right about this. This stuff is in the contract when you sign the option agreement.

        https://rodriqueslaw.com/blog/making-deal-selling-or-buying-screenplay/

        "Sometimes, as a condition to a reversion, the owner may be required to repay the expenses incurred by the purchaser in the development of the picture, or may impose a lien for such expenses, to be paid when the picture is set up with another purchaser"

          No, you’re definitely wrong

          > Generally, the script automatically “reverts” to the owner upon the expiration of the option period if the option has not been exercised and the purchase price has not been paid. If the purchaser exercises the option and pays the purchase price, a reversion can be used to provide for the return of rights if, for example, principal photography does not commence within a specified period of time after exercise of the option.
          This blurb was right above what you posted. Also, let’s read on:
          >Sometimes, as a condition to a reversion, the owner may be required to repay the expenses incurred by the purchaser in the development of the picture, or may impose a lien for such expenses, to be paid when the picture is set up with another purchaser…

          Here’s the very specific part you left out (likely because you knew it proved you wrong):

          >…if the subsequent purchaser wants to use the material created and/or paid for by the previous purchaser (or purchasers).

      It's an entertaining YA romp that gets a little full of itself in the final quarter, and has a sloppy and unsatisfying ending. People mostly love it for the dynamic art, the Scholastic book fair nostalgia, and a couple of really solid gags, but the plot and the world-building are nothing special. The main human character is a very flat and dull Tumblr OC, while the Bones are cartoony riffs on old Pogo characters there to serve as comic foils. It never goes anywhere terribly intriguing or unique, nor does it have anything particularly remarkable to say. The youth of the author is very apparent throughout. I think if he'd started Bone ten years later in life, it would have been better.

      You contrast it with an epic fantasy manga like Nausicaa or Berserk, or even something like Cerberus, and it looks like baby shit.

        I think this is why it's never been adapted. Compared to other American fantasy comics, Bone is pretty cool shit. But if you take it out of that very stunted medium, you see how it doesn't have much going on. It's just fantasy comics in the west are such shit, they make Bone look amazing. I mean, what else do you compare it with? Fricking Elfquest? Fables? It doesn't have the writing of Sandman or the weirdness of Cerebus, or the wacky subversion of Nimona. As great as the drawing is, the designs themselves don't have much flair.

        Bone is good for what it is, and that's what it should remain. It's too old-fashioned to have much of a place in modern animation.

          I think Bone's strongest selling point is the comedy, and the epic high fantasy storyline is at odds with the goofy cartoon humor that's so good in the first third. It feels like two different genres mashed together, and I suppose that's literally what is happening with the Bone cousin's exile.

          It's never quite fully realized as a genre mashup though, since the author's strengths seem to lean more towards gag comedy than fantasy adventure. And Smith has chosen to fill the rest of his career with more fantasy that looks great but has never quite been riveting. I have to wonder what he could do just by making a gag a day strip instead of graphic novels.
