I'm hoping they convert it to work better as an anime parody of a parody.

I see that's what's going on in the manga, and it's been going on as such, but I still find it fairly boring. It just doesn't capture NisiOisiN's usual wordplay as well.

There are some good parts here and there, but they could trim a lot and go all out with the satire.

there is something about the producer being gainax, or it hasn't been confirmed yet?

you can also add: Supernatural, Psychological and can forget about the Romance one xD

the summary on MAL is imprecise, you may follow it, but you'll have a nice(or bad) surprise when you'll come to watch/read it
a better description is on tvtropes:

It started off like Haruhi but then turned into a battle manga that pokes fun at Jump and other battle manga cliche. I can't say it does it as well as it could, though. Not as well done as his novels, anyways.

A good way of putting it. I totally did not realize that the battles were satirical, but that was probably because I was reading it when I was a shounen, and had no idea what was going on. Thus, I dropped it. I also faintly recall dropping it because there wasn't enough romance.

But with the advent of the anime, as well as your concise analysis, I will pick up the anime. After that, I can consider reading the manga. It's currently on hold now.

I personally am looking forward to watching it, altough I'll probably wait until I can watch at least 10 - 15 episodes in marathon.

For me, manga is rather entertaining, altough many things are rather silly and absurd.

For instance:



According to scan, it seems it will adapt manga all the way to the current arc.
Btw, animated Kumagawa. <3

They're adapting all the way to the Not Equals arc? I guess it's cool they're actually gonna get to the best parts, but I don't see this happening within 24 episodes. Either the pacing will be fucked or it's gonna be a long-running anime (which also means the pacing will be fucked). I'm kinda worried about this.

But that's the best part. Well, that and Kumagawa.

I heard something like that too a few months ago, but it might've been a hoax or something. Still, just imagine Nisio Isin doing a Gainax ending. It needs to happen sooner or later.

Because I don't feel like quoting your spasm. It's called "having an opinion". Not everyone is going to be excited or share your views, but calling someone an idiot ( even if you think you're being funny or joking ) makes you look immature and ignorant. What do you gain from it? Nothing. Grow up.

When Jump titles got adapted this past year(NuraMago, Bakuman, Beelzebub etc), I said to myself, "Hey the only ones missing are Medaka Box and Kuroko no Basket. Would be cool if they also got adapted."
And then this day arrived. And the announcement is at the same time. As a Jump reader, I am very happy. I've been following those two manga ever since it started.
Though I'm more excited on KnB that Medaka tbh.
Medaka... I can't really say what I feel about it. Let's just say that ever since the Flask plan it just became a chore to read.
I'll still watch this though.
I heard that Gainax will handle this. Any confirmation? Should be fun if it is.

Again, 2011= Jump year.
And Psyren adaptation where?

Hah? I was calling them idiot not because of their opinion, but for judging before even reading it. Read CAREFULLY and open your eyes BIIIIIGGG. Those are not even proper opinion. Those are just fuckin BIASES. You have no right to call me grow up~~~ Go away.

This is 'Psychopath Battle' Manga. Eechi, comedy, school life...everything else is just troll.

That's the unfortunate part, people will judge something before reading or watching it. But it's still an OPINION regardless of it lacking any logistical sense. Do I like it? No, but I still have enough respect for people and don't go mouthing off calling them idiots. Seriously. I have every right to express MY opinion. Same with you. I just decide to be more tactful and respectful in my wording. Which you lack.

Hold on... Why is your post just FULL of irony?

Hmm Hmm. So what do you call... well that 'RESPECT'... I see. Does that exist? No-way. You are definitely not respecting me, since I'm just following my own philosophy, aka 'OPINION' of how I act against people who are 'idiots'. You are emphasising YOUR opinion about how to act against people, and ignoring MY PHILOSOPHY on internet behaviour. How ironic is that?

Eww. That's why cynical kiddies can't get along with me.

First of all everyone who doesn't use "~~~" in his posts has the right to tell people who do to grow up. ThatÄs just how it is.

And if the genres in the database are not correct or representative, blame MAL and not me. The genres include some of the only genres I dislike and the summary sounded average. If the manga is actually going in an entirely different direction that's not something I could know from the starting post and other info on MAL.

Besides that your last post clearly shows that you are to stupid to understand the simple concepts of respect and opinion. Acting like an ass is NOT an opinion and being respectful is also NOT an opinion. It's a condition for having the right to have ones opinion counted as equal (otherwise you could pass beating up people f.e. out of racist motives could be counted as an equal opinion amongst many too). And you clearly don't fulfill that condition, so your opinion, unlike many others, positive or negative in this thread is worthless.

Also I loled at you calling anyone "kiddies" (even cynical) with a birthdate in the year 1994. That's great comedy right there, you got serious talent.

Shame on you. It doesn't change the fact that you 'misjudged' what this manga is supposed to be about. If you didn't want to make that kind of error, you should have really not post that kind of simplistic statement at all. There are much better words you can express.

I still think listing bunch of genres that stated in the site, basing judgement on that, and saying 'no thank', is no better than anything I did.

Maybe you misjudged me too, since my logics was basically just forced word twister that I actually recognised myself anyway. u.u~~ What I'm really saying was that he really had no real right to stop me from calling anyone 'idiot'. You don't have either.

In interent, age doesn't matter. It's a place 70 years old man can become 10 year old keyboard worrier. :D

Edited: I mean, you see? There are also list of many many people who bases everything about this animation on single genre statement; 'eechi'. That's a majority. Ok. But that's definitely NOT a good majority. I'm sure you will actually agree with this.

if your looking for a complete summary tvtrope has it xD

but it's full of spoilers, if you mind them you can keep your actual superficial opinion and wait for when eventually you'll watch the anime, or decide to read the manga

I just can't stand it if people pretend to not judge some series before they have seen it. If they didn't every series (ever produced) would be of exactly the same interest to them and there would be no guideline whatsoever to decide what they should actually watch in accordance with their taste. We all have our preferances and methods to judge what is worth our time because it might interest us and what not, you're definitely no different. Especially when I look at the big number of series you dropped after like 1 or 2 episodes. In many cases a first episode is a worse reference for judgement than the official genres.

Unless you actually know some concrete information about the show (no, a smattering of generic genres on MAL is not concrete, especially when there's seven of them with no indication of order of importance or whether it is parodying them or playing them straight or how much of either is present or anything), it's quite easy not to judge a show before seeing it.

As you gain more information, certainly you can start to form a very tentative opinion, but that should be a a long way from an unqualified "I found out about this seconds ago and looked at the genres on MAL and am gonna quote that and say 'No, thanks.', hur dur hur" as the first fucking post in the thread. If you don't think that's completely obnoxious, I don't know what to say to you.

If you want to write off a show based on the most meaningless shard of information, do so. But spare the rest of us your prejudices, thanks. Too many damn threads on MAL are full of dozens of "I don't know a damn thing about this property and the anime isn't even airing for months but LOL SHIT MUST SUX M I RITE" and you're not exactly helping.
