Here´s the article so you don´t have to go to the site to read it.
I hate anime.
But strangely, I don't hate this idea. I just sort of took it for granted that it would have been live action in some capacity.
I'm really happy that it's being done, but, why anime? Why not base the animation off of Gibbon's art? The anime just seems like a really stupid idea, an attempt to latch onto a fad, but I'm still happy I'll get to see an animated version of the Black Freighter at all.
Here's to hoping that some of it gets into the actual movie.
Anime just means "animation." There are so many different kinds of styles under the title "anime," I find it difficult to hate every single style.
Well, considering Butler said they're doing it "in the style of a japanese anime", I'm assuming he's talking about the goofy eyes, the abstract backgrounds, and those big tears that always seem to appear over people's foreheads. In all honesty I don't hate all anime, and I haven't seen a ton, I just don't think it fits with this project.
So we can expect to see this in July 2009. And now my mom will probably see Watchmen because she's a big Gerry Butler fan.
he's probably mistaken. it doesn't make sense making it in the style of anime. it's a comic book. i figured it would just be some sort of limited animation mimicking the style shown in the original book.
Well WB has already done The Animatrix and Batman:Gotham Knight is only months away. I would've hoped for a Gibbons style animation but it still should be a good DVD extra.
yeah, but snyder said he still plans on putting it in the movie, and to have it look like a japanese cartoon, when it's clearly just a regular comic is strange.
Well I hope Butler is just wrong about the anime stuff.
That would be totally disgraceful: what has the Black Freighter to do with anime?
even aside from the fact that i despise anime, that style is so wrong for this on so many levels. it really bums me out that thats the style they're gonna go with. to the point, where i dont even really care to see it.
Blech! Hopefully it goes directly to the DVD where one can choose not to watch it!
My thoughts exactly. Nothing says 1985 comic book about pirates like japanese animation.
It has to do with Joe Orlando and Brecht!
What are they thinking about? (If "thinking" is the correct word for the occasion).
I love anime! GREAT!!!
I don't like Anime, but as long as its "The Black Freighter" then its all good!
I hate anime but that's not the point. Anime doesn't have jack to do with watchmen, watchmen's tone, plot, style, time, etc.
Out of curiosity, what do the haters of anime hate about anime?
The style, the look, the plots and dialogue, the over-the-top nature, its self-seriousness despite it's over-the-top nature, the movement, the character development or lack therof, everything.
I've never really seen anime that I liked.
Its basically all hentai with clothes to me.
So you're saying all anime is the same. Interesting.
lets not get into a debate on peoples opinion of anime itself, thats just a pointless flame war waiting to happen. but i think anyone would be hard pressed to justify anime as an appropriate style for the content at hand.
I don't think that's the implication to take from his post. You asked about anime dislike. He gave you structural criticism.
It's genre. It's supposed that all of them share features like those he pointed out, without being exactly the same.
