This doesn't suck.
Feels lame compared to the manga, even if is adapted panel by panel, something was lost in translation
>The book was better
Is this ever not true?
Let me guess, you never read Bastard!! manga, right?
berserk, gantz, gits
Berserk manga is miles better than anime, same with Gantz. GITS is so different to the manga that is like two separated IPs
NTA but that's because the book is always better, which is why I don't read them. I'd rather not be disappointed by the adaptation.
True, anyway, is funny how people always enter to GITS through movies of tv show. When they try to read the manga is love or hate since the tone is so fucking different.
I just think that
>The book was better
A the most midwit opinions it's possible to have, they are in fact midmidwit. You may as well not say anything for all the relevance it actually has, all it does is derail every fucking conversation just so the midwit in question can announce he read the source material or has seen the old version.
It is the "I went to Harvard" of discussion points. Who cares?
Not sure if you are reply to me or another anon, but if soul related to animation, is about quality and dedication
Sadly Netflix´s Bastard haves nothing of 80s and 90s animation, feels empty like any post 2010 fantasy anime.
>but if soul related to animation, is about quality and dedication
No it doesn't.
The only time it EVER applies is when something has been remade competently. In which case the midwit, lacking anything else to say, will announce that the new one "lacks the soul of the old one."
Soul the old one didn't seem to have until it was remade.
But of course in reality it's a meaningless statement that only serve to announce to all and sundry that the midwit saw the original. It's not saying anything about the original, just that the midwit saw it.
As if I'm supposed to care.
Anon, there is a 90s Bastard!! OVA with the same story, dont be a fool.
So make a thread about it and watch that sink to straight to the archive because nobody cares about old as fuck borderline-H unless they're in the mood for it.
In the meantime, #3 on the summer 2022 charts, deserves some discussion.
Bastard!! is always borderline-H anon.
>In the meantime, #3 on the summer 2022 charts, deserves some discussion.
kek, like that means anything
>Bastard!! is always borderline-H anon.
And it's not unique in any way, or particularly interesting. It's just good ol' fashioned borderline-H, it's not a cult phenomenon. And if I'm incorrect and it is, then go find the cult.
>that means anything
Sure it does. It means people watched it. And they might want to discuss it. Like for example, me, I'm watching it, it's pretty cool, really does have the feel of that old Heavy Metal magazine story. It hasn't been "updated for a modern audience" at all, which alone is remarkable.
But instead of that, I get told "the book is better" and "this lacks soul", well what am I supposed to do with that? Congratulate you for not enjoying it?
I literally could not possibly have a reason to care, and yet you insist I be told repeatedly until... some sort of emotional affirmation I cannot possibly actually provide.
>And it's not unique in any way, or particularly interesting. It's just good ol' fashioned borderline-H, it's not a cult phenomenon.
If is not unique or interesting, why are you praising the same story/setting like something that deserves some discussion?
>Sure it does. It means people watched it
kek, people watched Euphoria and is shit
>But instead of that, I get told "the book is better" and "this lacks soul", well what am I supposed to do with that? Congratulate you for not enjoying it?
>And they might want to discuss it
Well, manga is better than the anime. Isn't what you want? discussing it?
Yeah, Netflix´s Bastard is Boring, pacing is fucked and lack of tension.
>why are you praising the same story/setting like something that deserves some discussion?
Because it's RECENT.
>people watched Euphoria and is shit
I didn't, which is why don't go into Euphoria threads.
I certainly don't go into them just to say the book was better.
>Well, manga is better than the anime.
That seems to be universally true. So why bother with anime at all? If you like manga, then just read the manga, the anime will ALWAYS disappoint you.
I on the other hand don't really like manga, I like anime.
But I can't actually fucking discuss anime can I?
Because you fuck
Every fucking time
Will derail the conversation into a discussion of the fucking manga I haven't read, and am not going to.
You don't watch anime and don't come into anime threads is the logical solution here. We will all be happier having no contact with each other.
>Because it's RECENT.
oh! I get it, OLD BAD, NEW GOOD, right?
>I didn't, which is why don't go into Euphoria threads.
Well, I watched Netflix´s Bastard so here we are
>So why bother with anime at all? If you like manga, then just read the manga, the anime will ALWAYS disappoint you.
Because I love the manga I wanted to watch the anime, usually works in this way since, anime is an adaptation.
>I watched Netflix´s Bastard so here we are
Discussing anything except Netflix Bastard.
>Because I love the manga I wanted to watch the anime,
Spoilers: It won't be as good.
That's true for every single manga you've ever read or ever will read. Without single exception.
>I get it
Apparently you don't.
Apparently you want to have the same conversation for 30 years never discussing anything new ever.
>Discussing anything except Netflix Bastard.
I'm discussing about Netflix´s Bastard, since I watched it I can say that is lame compared to the original source
>Spoilers: It won't be as good.
>That's true for every single manga you've ever read or ever will read. Without single exception.
Nah, there is a lot of animes that are better than original source, like Kimagure Orange Road, Maison Ikkoku, Saint Seiya, K-On, YuYu Hakusho, Mob Psycho, etc.
>Apparently you want to have the same conversation for 30 years never discussing anything new ever.
But I'm discussing about something new, but this don't mean is a good adaptation just because is new.
>this don't mean is a good adaptation just because is new.
>I watched it I can say that is lame compared to the original source
These are not the mutually you seem to think they are.
Just because it has an original, doesn't make it shit. The animation quality is good, I'm enjoying the voice acting of the dub, and compared to what else has been on offer recently, it's fucking amazing.
If you're unable to enjoy it because it has an original or you've read the manga, sucks to be you bro, not my problem.
>These are not the mutually supporting statements you seem to think they are.
is what I meant to say.
>Just because it has an original, doesn't make it shit.
I'm not saying is shit because there is an original, the lack of urgency is part of the problem, pacing is odd, maybe because they tried to hard to have a panel by panel adaptation the result is wonky. Also they spoil the whole fucking big revelation of the mid-manga in the prologue. Its nonsense
>The animation quality is good,
Is OK at best, but in the current year I understan why you should feel like it´s water in the desert.
>If you're unable to enjoy it because it has an original or you've read the manga, sucks to be you bro, not my problem.
kek, my problem is not the comparison with the manga, my problem is they fucked up part of the story and pacing. Some stuff and gags works fine in a manga page logic but don't work the same on screen, thats why is a botched adaptation
>I'm not saying is shit because there is an original
That's what that means, that's what that ALWAYS means.
That and "the book was better" are completely pointless criticisms.
>Is OK at best
I disagree. 90s VHS anime looks shit if you watch it with fresh eyes today. It's blurry, the colours lack vibrancy, etc etc. I LOVE the original ghost in the shell, but there is NO DOUBT that the last season of GITSSAC, despite being a ho hum story, LOOKS better, simply because the technology improved.
>my problem is not the comparison with the manga, my problem is they fucked up part of the story and pacing.
And this is the first time you're bringing this up.
A more useful comparison would be to Cyberpunk, which is 11th on the Summer 2022 chart, almost certainly due to it's marketing since it does not deserve even that modest honour.
So what I'm seeing is not a remake or an adaptation, what I'm seeing is a story about an evil wizard trapped in the body of a little boy who rescues damzels in distress while acting like a complete chad at all times.
That's awesome! It will get boring after a while, but I haven't seen it ages, so I'm loving it, as will anyone else in my situation.
And the reasons you're giving me to hate it are, simply put, bullshit.
Wait did they remake it again?
>basically just rad much cooler version of Berserk where Grifith is a Chad
This is recent, #3 Summer 2022 anime charts. Which is the only thing that made me ignore the Netflix logo on it.
Nope. Not gunna either. I like Television and Film.
Good, you are losing the best version of Bastard!! enjoy your lame and inferior version.
Is this the one where the author re-drew the entire first few volumes or am I thinking of something else?
yes, he is remaking the whole thing.
But he already was used to redraw the whole manga for each new volume. It was insane to read the raw manga and compared it to tankoubon version.
so how do I know if I'm reading the updated version or not
"Bastard!! Complete edition" is the new redraw version
i wish they would make anime that isnt entirly focused on muh sex and rape, its soo fucking emberassing and bad
>I have never seen any anime at all, ever.
didn't this come out in the 90s or 80s?
This one came out the middle of this year.
Though it definitely has an 80/90s Adult Fantasy kind of feel.
New netflix version. It follows panel by panel to the original manga, but lacks of the soul of 90s OVAs
I agree, Netflix are awful, that doesn't make you interesting by comparison.
>I agree, Netflix are awful
Netflix is anti-soul by definition
do they show closeups of the rape too?
no, also if you watch the US dub, they removed the JP moanings
I dont know if the dialogue was fucked up in translation but its absolute garbage. Compared to Overlord, the whole show us just plain bad. Banging into though
Yes it does.
Then go post about it on /a/
stop quoting each other like retards, just answer the comment and that's it
Go back newfag.
imma give this one bump just in case anyone else has anything to add.
