Divinenega said: I;m now officially worried. The episode was pretty good but anyone who's read the manga knows they essentially just wrote Azami out of the plotline in their attempt to get to the more hardcore stuff faster.
It's gonna make it awkward as hell to do a Season 2(provided the series sells) since she's half the damn reason for one of the story arcs....
On another note, damn that opening song is epic.
was just gonna say *wtf they completely skipped Azami! now i'm wondering when there gonna put her in Other then that i still i'm enjoying the hell of it.
This is one of those times where the manga seriously outdoes the anime... replacing one character with another entirely? I mean come on...blah. I think I'll just end up dropping this if dumb changes and cuts like that keep happening. Turns it into an "alternate reality" rather then an adaption of its manga counterpart imho. Azami is just..awesome, how could they remove her from all that. (I miss Azami D: )
Seeing the little pictures during the ending song was kinda bitter sweet & touching though (probably only manga readers will know who all of them are).
....I gotta download that OP I swear it f**king awesome. As for the episode hardcore, even though they cut out the most of the awesome impalements, not to mention some gore on the side. It hurts man....it hurts when they censor the "good stuff". (T_T)
WOW the opening song was horrible, the art and animation of the OP where great but the song didn't fit. As for the episode I prefer the first episode, but still it was entertaining despite the whole butchering in the storyline. I was expecting this adaptation to be 100% or at least 99.9% faithful to the manga, guess I was wrong there. But so far the 2 episodes have been enjoyable, in some way, waiting for Crow to appear.
The OP is fucking amazing but I'd wish they stuck with the manga... Seriously... The episode was kind of lame if you ask me, compared to the manga and all.
Fuck I was expecting so much from this 'cause I loved the manga so much! T_T 12 episodes: they're going for an anime ending probably, they're rushing everything and didn't introduce some characthers so it has to be.
Wow! That was rough! A good rough, but rough nonetheless. I don't even read the manga and noticed a lot of censorship, but I still "enjoyed" the episode. It's just... damn. If you could think of a horrible way to die then it looks like they threw it in the race.
Wow, that's a nice OP. And yeah, like most manga readers have said, they totally skipped a significant character .__. Oh well, they probably can't get to that arc in just 12 episodes anyway (unless they decide to have sequels)
StardustNyako said: If you had multiple anime on the screen at once it'd all be jumbled up. Kaneki Ken might become a ninja who guides souls to the afterlife Battlefront where they find peace and reicarnate to AIs.
So damn creepy. This could easily be a horror movie, shit. I don't know why people would pay to watch stuff like that, but it seems like they think it's special effects. Shiro was bloody awesome too.
As for the cut character, I'm sure it must be disappointing for you guys but keep in mind this is only 12 eps. Also, such shows rarely get sequels. Maybe this way, they'll have more time to wrap up the arc they want to animate neatly.
I don't think it was better than the first but still very good. I expected that those games wouldn't be some innocent safe staff but they really are a killing machine considering only 1 or two persons survive at the end.
I'm kind of wondering how the hell aren't they running out of prisoners like that? If just one game kills 50 or something then what the hell?
Shiro really went out of her way to protect him but i wonder if she has some brain damage with the way she acts all the time. She didn't seem to care at all if he will save her or not while she was falling to her death and no matter what, she always react in that happy smiley way.
so this was a fairly good episode but like everyone already said: it sucks that they messed with the storyline and erased an entire character(Azami), hopefully they will find a way to intruduce her later.
and I think this is going to get really rushed, like they'll try and squese in the entire storyline in 12 episodes (wich sounds kinda impossible), cuz right now it doesn't look like we'll get a second season.
btw it's just a feeling but I think they'll be skiping more characters -.-
I want to see less censorship and less manga plot deviation. I know those are both far off dreams since it's only going to be 12 episodes and they don't want to get sued or anything, but they should start thinking about a second season and release an uncensored version )':
On a brighter note, WHO'S EXCITED TO SEE MY BBY SENJI NEXT SATURDAY? AWWW YEAH
The Censors are not that bad, is not like they are covering the whole screen... they darken a little bit the scene but is not as it completely out view (like some scenes of HotD).
Anyways good episode but I'm a little worried as it shown as a 12 episodes anime... hopefully this wont have some kinda of rush/slap-together ending ^^
WTF, how can people think that poeple getting shot and bleeding and being cut in half be a freaking 'special effect'??! Even if it was a special effect, i would not enjoy watching people end up like that. Well, the anime has a setting of a fked up world. So yea.
I am enjoying how the story goes and how much Ganta is tiring to live.
