So this was revealed to be Sentai's first ever co-production, now I'm curious.

So some lazy intern ripped NPCs from Granblue Fantasy and pasted them into an old copy of Monster Hunter? More like Giant Beasts of Arse.

interesting but incorrect premises all around. almost every sentence was incorrect. you flipped the genre entirely to one that OBVIOUSLY isn't shonen action etc. by using BL ... not quite the coherent discussion point. also, not all BL is teen boys... last time i checked there were four? adult male ones in TV/movies ... maybe 3? in this year alone? i don't follow that genre at all so i just have a vague inkling there was a couple.

shrug, it's just like the idea if i threw into the ring GL/yuri/lesbian books and inserted that into a discussion about non-shojo romance writers doing shojo romance scripts.

i didn't say Mr. Norimitsu is highly, or greatly, or even impressively experienced... i said he wasn't ENTIRELY in-experienced. you do one thing once, that gives you an experience. you do it twice, i would guess that gains you twice the experience.

also, i was originally looking at just shonen. originally you stated, "but shonen-ish action" and "Since when is a manga adaptation of Guilty Gear a good experience in writing a shonen-ish show?" i just said two of the titles he did scripts on sounded like they were shows aimed at the shonen age-bracket. if you read further into those two titles yes they ARE shonen action shows.

when HASN'T an adult or middle/high school aged (or younger) person being an author's main character meant that project was aimed at ... that exact same age bracket and probable sex of readers/viewers? the reader/viewer most closely identifies with the central personage of the writing. if the consumer is similar to the central character (in one or more ways) that leads to a more closely relatable experience for the consumer.

you wouldn't file Winnie The Poo in adult fiction shelves at the bookstore would you? Christopher Robin isn't exactly an action-adventure main character leading a spy-network of anthropomorphic animals to protect their woodland country from enemy agents of the pastures and grain-fields communal labor bloc.


Oh, thank you for completely killing my motivation to discuss something with you, just starting to write walls of text and bombard me with massive amounts of scarecrows instead of thinking through the meaning of my short comment to the point. Goodbye.


cool, thanks for the effort. bye yourself.

If all shows with teen boys were considered action shonen, then every BL mangaka would be a shonen master. Not to mention that the mere fact of writing a show doesn't mean you have a good experience with it.

ahhahhh! :o damn i screwed that one up! thanks for calling my attention to my LACK of attention! :D i thought that was the CONCLUSION movie for GC not the prequel. DOH! .forehead smack.

Gunslinger Stratos The Animation, that one does certainly sound shonen. MC is a high-school boy.

Neppuu Kairiku Bushi Road... mhm that one sounds shonen as well.

Akudama Drive... well i did watch this one. the first 6 episodes. shonen? nah. this one edges too far into seinen for me to consider it for under 18 consumption.

so Mr. Norimitsu isn't ENTIRELY in-experienced writing/working on shonen scripts.

re-read that filmography one more time and check his credited role on Guilty Crown. he wrote the anime script.


...for a prequel episode, not the anime itself.

Huh, there were people who literally spread slander against the authors of one of the manga because they hated anime. Yes, some haters are ready to go even that far.


well if you see it, report it. :) i doubt the MAL rules will let folks just come out and openly lie slash trash bash and whatnot. the majority of the 'really flaming hot piles of crap' people i've come across on MAL don't keep their profiles long because normal folks keep reporting those 'dirty bastards' and whatnot. those 'DB' have to keep churning out dummy profile after dummy profile to keep their greedy and tiny hearts beating like miniscule evil drums.

i'm not talking about heated debates, and reasonable disagreements, or just plain 'you are SOOO off your rocker i cannot talk to you at all!' kinds of things. i'm talking about deliberate and predetermined malice aforethought writings, specifically meant to injure a person or persons' image (or other entity/object) in some way.

i spent 14+ years in the US Army as a Military Policeman. i came across one unnamed individual's unmentionable writings here on MAL and after finishing it? i was about one minute away from digging through Google and getting the FBI, NSA, and a few other police agencies' addresses and emailing them a long and detailed transcript and screenshots and more... that person's writings set off so many 'red flags' in my head i felt like i was at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and EVERY marching band's flag-squad was waving crimson fabric.

then i stopped and figured, 'ah what the heck, i'll try it.' i shot a report up to the MAL folks and about ahh... i think it was 2 to 3 days later i got a lil form letter in my MAL box stating that persons' writings had been deleted and their profile was being reviewed.

so, in my experience? the reporting system does work. now, what 'da rules of MAL' actually say about what you experienced? shrug! heck if i know! :D read em yourself and see if your experience meshes with some form of some rule violation.


Umm...okay, I guess?

SLANDER about ANY genre is bullcrap and should be harshly punished. also, if it is written/printed statements... as on the internet... say here. it's called libel. slander is legally defined as a spoken word. but if somebody is purposefully lying or trying to ruin any genre's image, they should be dealt with!

i personally dislike the idol and sports genres of anime. but i don't actively go out of my way to influence people about them.

did you even READ Kaihou Norimitsu the script writer/series composition filmography and printed materials here on MAL?


true, this is Oguro Akira the director's second 'head boss' job. but he has been a key animator, animation director, and a few other jobs.


Yes and I see Kanata no Astra (garbage), Luck & Logic (garbage), Guilty Crown (garbage) OVA, Gakkougurashi (cute girls doing shit) and some manga-after-anime leftovers.


yikes, what are you? the evil parallel dimension Siskel and Ebert's love-child?

Astra? not garbage, it wasn't god-tier but it wasn't garbage.

L&L? ARE YOU BLEEPING serious? that series was visually gorgeous, definitely not some half-arsed hack-job adaptation, and that was GOOD anime!

GC conclusion? ok. either you're just here to troll or your eyeballs are deeply damaged and you need some glasses/surgery or something.

not that i know diddly about Gakkougurashi.... but by reading the review from ZephSilver Sep 24, 2015 with 493 thumbs up... YOU don't know any more about the show than i did before reading ZephSilver's review. did you miss the whole ZOMBIES part of that show?

Looks like another'multimedia project' ad for a short running mobile game

Gakkougurashi really getting slandered for no reason. It is a fantastic show that isn't just girls doing cute shit.

It became Resident Evil (live action). What did you expect?


I mean yeah the live action one is bad XD

Honestly looks like it's going to be a steaming pile of shit (discount AoT visuals, uninteresting battle-shounen vibes), but hey who knows.

I'd expect them to flex all that money they get from hosting a craptong of gacha games and running some banking services like Cygames did with their gacha money, but it doesn't seem so. Well, at least it not being "cute girls doing bullshit", idols or isekai is already making it worth checking out. Though the director and scrip writer having nothing worth mentioning among their past projects plus couple of bad eggs is quite worrisome.

By the way, yes. But I would remove the "now" because those genres were over the top even before isekai came into existence.

I guess I just noticed how prevalent these types of anime are recently due to the increase in their popularity. This season really stood out to me with just how many there were.


Well, the classic example of genre abuse is when writers start making cheesy premise to stand out. CGDCT went through this phase back in the mid-10s. A large number of internal parodies can also symbolize this.
