Heads up sane people: Just when we thought we dodged a bullet with the next twilight book being postponed roomers of a twilight anime. (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2009-03-16/twilight-director-hardwicke-hints-at-anime-version)

To top off the awfulness it was reported by SyFy. So there's a good chance we'll lose Gurren Lagann for this.

The only thing preventing me from going mad is the knowledge of an upcoming Solomon Stone book length epic.

It's the anti Twilight!

I choose to look at this one of two ways, because the third way (that something like this is being inflicted upon us without any need or provocation, and that there is actually a market for this kind of drivel) would leave me irrevocably insane.

Possibility #1: They take the series and crank it up to eleven. Make our author insert wonder a delusional, oft-suicidal wreck of a human being (because she should be), and turn Baron Von Sparkle into a creepy, sadistic, incredibly possessive stalker/rapist (because he is). Just make it the darkest, most depressing, sickening mind **** possible. Hell, get David Cronenberg to direct the series, and Junji Ito to do the animation. Worth it because it might actually be worth watching and because of the havoc it would cause among the established fan base.

Possibility #2: This may be the karmic balance for something incredibly awesome on the horizon. A Spider Jerusalem series on HBO? Maybe a Preacher Trilogy on DVD? A good Punisher movie? Damn, shoot for the stars, maybe Allen Moore will start up ABC again. Dream big kids, an awful lot of good will be needed to balance out this abomination :smallsmile:.

You're right.
Let's get back at her.
You know, they say the best revenge is living well, but "that stupid cow" doesn't know we exist, so that's a hard way to go about it. So, naturally, the best revenge is living well, and beign famous for it. But, to make the revenge sweeter, we must become famous for what she's done, do it better, and then live well.
What am I saying? Let's all write a better vampire romance story out of spite! And then make them make a movie and an anime based on it!

...hmmm, there's a thought...

You know, we should do this. I've already thought: What about an intentionally twisted relationship. A vampire that kills and a twisted woman who hands him the routines of people she hates. So if she has parental issues she gives him their adress and daily routine and such.

It means "an impairment in quality, or a moral corruption". I found it fitting.
And now to shape some horribly flawed characters. But first, to define vampirism in a uniqueish but not absurd manner. Maybe a not-ridiculous way of dealing with that sunlight problem.

I have read exactly 2 issues of "The Goon" (read, NOT ENOUGH), and that sounds like awesome incarnate.

What might be better is The Goon And Brock Samson vs abunch of mooks (Or The Good vs Brock Samson), with Dethklok playing in the background.

Hey, I only read one trade (again, not enough), and I figger the Goon with anybody is awesome.

Heck, he had a Hellboy team up. I think the Goon won. Now if that ain't something...

I developed a theory.

since Twilight is fantasy, everyone knows that, and this is the Syfy channel *spits* maybe they will mess each other up- the Syfy channel will executive meddle with it or adaptation decay will go into effect or twilight anime will make people angry since its not sci-fi but fantasy.

yea maybe the two evils will kill each other instead...

but if they don't, keep the flamethrowers ready.......the all purifying flamethrowers........

Fact 1: SyFy is kind of like Sci Fi, but isn't.
Fact 2: W40k is kind of like Science Fiction, but isn't.
Fact 3: Shinji Meets Warhammer 40k has proven that W40k (And the chainsaws therin) Can make anything awesome.
I present, the following scenario

Note, I may have these names wrong, having only heard about Twilight VIA Snark
Edward: I love you
Bella: BURN MUTANT SCUM. FOR THE EMPEROR!
Edward: *Burns*

And then Da Orkz show up...

Erm, it was reported that the Director of the movie thought there would be an anime. From the quote, it sounds more like something being negotiated at worst, something she's stereotype expecting at best.

YES! YES! A thousand times YES!

Fact 4: Aliens is Nightmare Fuel.
Fact 5: Twilight is Nightmare Fuel.

So then we could have Ripley come in and throw Bella and her hellspawned child out of an airlock, while the rest of the Cullens are killed to the last by a Deathwatch team.

Okay, there are some sanity-preserving measures. For one thing, it sounds like it might not even happen. So maybe the world will be spared this atrocity! Or maybe, like has been said, they'll change it radically, and it won't be awful. Maybe it will even be . . . good.

Let's be honest. These books aren't as bad as people on here make them out to be. While they're not exactly great works of literacy, they're honestly no worse written than the Harry Potter novels.

That said, I don't even think that you could translate the plot of Twilight into an anime. Almost all of the action (and there's hardly any) occurs either inside of the main character's head, or offscreen...and most of the conflicts in the series resolve themselves without violence.

I could see them making it into a crappy television show...but an anime? No.

Funny that I do not recall a glorified description of an emotionally abusive relationship, child grooming, pedophilia, rape, or severe wish fulfillment in HP. Maybe I just wasn't dazzled enough to notice.

Turning Twilight into anime is just wrong... Turning Twilight into ANYTHING other than book is wrong. Its sole existence is wrong. I really do hope this is just a rumor and it will never come true.

Altho if they do turn it into anime, everything you just counted will probably be badly exposed. It will turn into something 18+ like. I wonder who will be left dazzling in that case.. not fans. Or at least not their parents. Lawsuit anyone?

Hadrian_Emrys
2009-03-21, 03:56 PM
Is it wrong that I almost hope that an anime is made that is completely accurate to what is described? That way, "movie" 4's rape of Bella, via glitter zombie, might finally sink into the heads of the fans of the series. This isn't love, it's a power game! Hell, looking at a baby with the intent of making a child adore you so you can shag it later is no less messed up. :smallfurious:

. . . No. If you (dis)like them the same amount, that's your opinion, but I can give you a hundred reasons Harry Potter is much better, just in terms of plot and characters. Hadrian_Emrys has already given some and I'm sure that others can help.

It involves stalkers, obsession, rape, a sort of odd straight shota (given the age difference), some quite literal straight shota (with a werewolf no less) vampires, and a guro/vore pregnancy. How do you think it's doing in Japan?

Oh yes for those curious, the new Shin Mazinger Z opening

The title is 感じてKnight (Kanjite Knight) or The Knight with/or Feelings, whatever that means. Anyway, it seems Ichirou Mizuki would not be doing it. Instead, itís seems to be an unit made up of two units and two solo artist. The first unit is LAZY, an old group formed by Mitsuko Horie and Hironobu Kageyama. The second is JAM Project, whom I really do not need to introduce. The two solo artistes are Kazuyoshi Saito and Okuda Tamio. I admit that I have no idea who these two are but judging from their sites, they seem to remind me of Yoshiki Fukuyama, with all the guitars on them. Whatever it is, I am looking forward to this song.

Release date is on the 22nd of April, released by Lantis.

I'm not denying that it has elements that could appeal to the Japanese, I'm asking for actual evidence, if anyone has any. Sales figures, Japanese fansites, that sort of thing.
