I had to post this. Just too perfect.
Then why cowboy beebop? Why not TTGL or Death Note or Clannad or Fullmetal Alchemist ... Bleach, Once piece (god forbid those morons to do that)? Something newer and more popular these days.
Or are they going to make sure they trash everything and DB was just the first small step in their journey?
Naruto would probably get an improvement.
I do watch naruto but seriously it lacks so much that i think they will do some good to this one show if they make a movie of it.
Anyway, I second this notion. Any objections to crapping on
(the American version of) Naruto
And yes, as this effort by Fox is a calculated assault upon every thing we who watch anime consider holy. Bleach
? Death Note
? These titles are far too new and mainstream to be respected by all, in addition to being produced by the imfamous Shonen Jump
. (They milk the shows for all they're worth, but at least they are respectful.) No. Fox has been doing their homework, and they know to hit hard where it hurts. I wouldn't be surprised if within a year or two we will see the bloodied heads of Ash and Pikachu on pikes, after the terrible abuse they will receive in a live-action film. "Who cares?" you say. We no one...if you are talking about the newer ones. But Fox won't do that, will they? No, they hold nothing sacred and will make probably go after the heart, crapping and crapping
upon the first season. "They wouldn't!" you think...and then you look at Goku, a broken shell of his former self.
Well, that's enough ranting for one post. And I love Shonen Jump (Gin Tama!) I just don't think they've reached classic status yet. Naruto almost has, though I don't think it deseves it very much. Oh man, am I gonna get flamed...
