This just doesn’t seem right, spending funds on an anime movie...isn’t they're better things they could have spent it on? Maybe like the damages that have happen to Japan?!? That’s if this is from the main part of the Japanese government...anime must be very important to them to do this sort of thing for whatever reason...

On the other hand, this money better not go to waste and turn out to be apparently as crap as the series, tbh I didn't think it was to good.

This is what Occupy Wall Street is about:

To stop the government sucking corporate cock by funding shit like this!

i think this is great - unlike most folks, i actually loved blood-c - i thought it was something different - very dark, beautiful, twisted, and unexpected - can't wait!

Of all the anime movies they could've chose... Geez. ""OTL""

So Saya's going to be the one protecting international collaboration?

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?

1. haters are hating and saying stupid shit. All the government did was provide the financial aid to an international project. They had very little impact on what a separate committee aka "experts" chose from a pool of entries that were willing to do international collaborative works.
2. What does the series have to do with the movie. Seriously show me the links. All I'm seeing is winging about the series and things that they didn't like that most likely will not even be in the movie.
3. The whole scheme is about international collaboration. Whatever stupid thing you like and want isn't the point. Its about promoting the media industry abroad.

That's...Unexpected. Why would the government do that?

Oct 2, 2011 4:12 PM by Sanguis

bad idea.
