But yea, again, its surprising that this got the comedy ver, it would be more normal in other kind of series, so yea, kinda strange.

Now I'm curious to see comedy versions of Goldgo 13, LOGH and Rose of Versailles.


Rose of Versaille might not have a comedy anime, but it does have a parody manga by Ikeda Riyoko herself.

They are also doing it with Fist of the North Star - so I would say it's a matter of time.
Chibi version of LOGH, that would be interesting.


For Hokuto no Ken is not strange for that kind of series, theres already chibi ver, is way too strange for something like Glass Mask, so it would be for LOGH or Rose of Versailles, for glgo not that much, this can be seen as some form of tarnishing the reputation of venerated, beloved and classic -also extremely serious- series.

I get the feeling that is the reason the mangaka is having second thoughts about letting Glass Mask being used in such a way.

That sounds very concerning. (lol)

I prefer watching a 1 week marathon of ALL One Piece adaptations, while getting hot wax poured on my back!

*sigh* Thought it was going to be another remake that went further than the last one. Fuck comedy.

Is that the only thing they can do? Parodies of old anime?

I haven't read the manga yet I guess I'll get to it then.

Spin-off huh? I'll give it a try.

as a strong fan of the manga and 2005 anime i have doubts about this :/ how do they imagine to bring comedy into this beautiful and somewhat serious/deep manga? even the mangaka disapproves of it...
i will watch out of loyalty to glass mask but i am very scared.


Well it can work honestly, dont see the big issue, its a spin off comedy series, its not necessarily related. Its like those chibi version of some anime. PLkus it can easily pass as a stage play.

But yea, again, its surprising that this got the comedy ver, it would be more normal in other kind of series, so yea, kinda strange.

It would be interesting to see, we just dont need to take it seriously or see it as a profanation of the series.
