That is somewhat ridiculous, these are not even anime of a culturally important standard. I can see the need to publicly finance some sectors of the anime industry, but then at least finance things that are worthwhile, perhaps new works by Studio 4°C. Even compensating Kyoani for its losses on Nichijou would be better.

Lmao. I can see why they need the money. With a series like like Blood Crap, they're not gonna get much profit.

For Ishihara it's better to censor a movie with blood than put a movie with sexy girls!!!!

omg... I'm disappointed, out of all the movies they could choose, they choose blood-c, they could have spend money on something which really relate to the japanese culture no?

But, I'm more interrested in Gusukobudori no Denki, which I don't know what it is :O

Seriously, the government wants to double sales tax to help the region rebuild from the earthquake- then they throw money at... Blood C-?!? At least give money to something with cultural or artistic integrity, or something with a wide audience. Mottainai!

Why? Seriously, why Blood-C? There're tons of other movies that'll be coming out, many more series, lots of studios that could use the movie. But of Allllll That, they choose This.

Really, now, really? -.-V

I don't see how you are using that phrase.

1. People aren't hating on it. They are just criticizing the fact there are BETTER selection choices
2. People pointed out slow action and censorship makes this series bad
3. The cultural department us handling it. HOW is it related to the vulture more than dome others that could've been selected?

I wasnt even aware that the government lent out funds for anime. Makes you wonder...if they cant generate enough sales to make a movie...why make one in the first place?

... What?

Excuse me, can someone explain this news to me?
I don't get it... Why would they do something like that?
They have too much money so they started wasting it on random crap?
If they wanted to support the anime industry, why not spend that money on all the good mangas that need to be animated instead of a Blood-C movie?
I mean, Blood-C doesnt even have that many fans, it's not like they will make a huge profit... So why?!

Censorship isn't really a valid reason, considering it will probably be removed for the BD/DVD version. I suppose heavy action lovers wouldn't really like Blood-C, but there are those that aren't bothered by the amount of action. It really just depends on the person.

I dropped it after the 2nd episode where she sings for 15 minutes. Seriously though, how they managed to get funding from the government is a mystery. That is pure terrible.

If anyone were to invest in a movie that wont pay for itself, it would have to be a government, since by giving out money they dont expect anything in return.

Trololol. Seriously, why? Some kind of feel good anime would be understandable, but Blood-C with all the deaths? =.=

Hated the series for the most part, but I am happy for the movie to see how it ends. There was a huge cliffhanger at the end of the show... they can't do a complete 180 and just stop. The movie was needed.

I do think it is stupid though that the movie is getting financial assistance from the Government. There are tons of more deserving shows.

I hope that the movie has less gore too... I don't mind gore, but the very last episode was wayyyyyyyyyy too extreme. Throwing people in a giant bowl monster part and blending them was way too psycho even with the censors.

Also, I sure do hope that they don't include stupid censors.

Awesome if the movie is more extreme than the last episode and shown in its full uncensored glory :D
but the entire series is still awful
The threat is stronger than the execution.

WTF?! Isn't this the same Government that issued the Sexual Depictions of Minors bill? Really that much money to fund projects and one of which isn't very good at all? Good grief.

Well the serie was bad mostly because of the directing than anything else.
The movie start on a somehow good setting and Saya will not be annoying anymore. I'll wait before putting the movie in the same category than the Tv serie, it's like not watching Haruhi movie because s2 was bad.
