HAEUHAEHEIUAEHAUIHAEIUAEUHA MAN, AO ONI!
I remember watching Cry's gameplay of it and cracking myself up XD I totally want to see it. So is going to be a parody chibi anime and a serious movie?

IB ANIME IS A MUST! So nice to see more IB fans! That RPG is one of my favorites games, I was so happy to get true ending the first time I played ç-ç
Witch's house could be made into a nice movie, I think. It would be interesting :)

Like:
Ib
Mad Father
The Witch's House
Mogeko Castle
...TONS more. And loving that forum set, fam! <3


Thankies~
But yes. I'm in love with RPG Maker Horror games. Tbh an Ib adaptation would be very interesting considering all the good and bad endings to the game. Surely if it was animated though, it might go a different route like Corpse Party did.

Still desperately awaiting for Satsuriku no Tenshi to be translated of all games! Dx

Don't think Ib can do that well as an anime, considering most of it are puzzels, can't really see how they're gonna make em work in an anime

More excited for the Ao Oni Anime Movie Adaptation than the SD form shorts to be honest.
This should be the OP to the Anime :P

I love this game and the animation looks adorable. I can't wait to see this! :)

Nope
Nope
Nope
Ao Oni pls
Nope
I've never been so scared of blue devil suddenly coming from people that supposed to be friends & chasing me suddenly

So... Where's Ib? Crooked man?
They're better (for me) because they had a happy ending xD

Well the game was heaps of fun, despite the monster looking absolutely ridonkulous.Might boot the game up again to get into the vibes while looking forward to this.

But if this becomes Mayoiga 2.0 then I'm never watching horror anime ever again.

Now we just need an adaptation of Mad Father, that would be potentially fantastic.

IB deserves a fucking anime. Seriously, what a masterpiece of RPG.

Aug 16, 2016 12:52 AM by __Iris__

anyone agree that Mad father deserve The TV show more than this?

Aug 15, 2016 2:47 PM by Reven-of-death

That was unexpected but there are better games that deserve an adaptation out there.

As much as I love RPGMaker games, I can see the incoming trainwreck already.
I am genuinely terrified to see how this goes.

I mean sure, if it was still 2010.

There's two anime adaptations if you didn't notice. Short and a movie adaptation.

I beat the game a while back and really enjoyed it, but I'm a little skeptical about game to anime adaptations...

I expect nothing, maybe a fabulous train-wreck?
