What the hell Japan???

Rate this Entry
What is it with the Japanese film industry and adaptations of popular manga&anime?

I mean when Hollywood fucks up adaptations, like with DBZ, at least I can rationalise it with white-washing and cultural differences and the producers being in little to no touch with the source materiel.
But with Japanese movie adaptations of their own shit it gets a bit harder to swallow it all.

I mean first I had to watch the dreadful awfulness that were the Death Note movies, and now Attack on Titan too!?!

Next I'm expecting them to adapt PMMM and rip yet another piece of my heart out of my chest.

Where will it end Japan, where will it end???

    well they're trieng to make it popular for a more general audience i think? While manga is pretty much read by the general public, most anime are still nerd-territory.
    Well, its true that the japanese movie-industry is generally pretty low-budget so stuff that would actually need good special effetcs ends up suuuuucking.

    worst offender in recent memory is the kuroshitsuji movie, which changed the time to modern day and made everyone's costumes look like utter shit.

    It's not the special effects that are the issue - it's the godawful everything else, from acting to casting to unexplainable and atrocious changes to plot and characters.

    Good or bad, still gets a cut of the movie money. Why wouldn't Isayama love it?

    Death Note movie wasn't that good, but I really liked how they ended the series, it was much better than how they did in the mange imo.
    Haven't seen AoT yet but heard it's kinda meh.
