    They could get the manga writers to plot out a story outline in advance then write the scripts themselves based on that, that doesn't seem realistic though

    a lot of anime adaptations are designed to shift copies of the source material based on increased interest/exposure, there tend to be bigger profits from the source material, so that happening is unlikely

    it's far from unheard of for an anime to get it's own ending or something if the source has stopped being produced or run into difficulties or just for the sake of making the anime self-contained (as opposed to giving it an open-ending which continues in the source material), such as Hunter x Hunter (2011), or the Noragami/Arpeggio of Blue Steel adaptations (which had different stories past a certain point of the manga, designed to be self-contained)

    varies a lot between different anime and such, but ive not heard of a source material being plotted in advance so the anime could be adapted from it

    Fullmetal Alchemist tried going off-piste when they ran out of manga. The result? They had to make Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood a few years later to fix everything!

    Not that the original anime wasn't good. I just get the feeling sometimes that when people who are used to adapting a manga suddenly find themselves having to write something new in the same style as the source material, it's unlikely to turn out as well as you might like.

    That was another very good show that I ended up not liking. I like how it says - "Directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi, (Director of two shows that were made after this one)".

    I'm guessing this is some kind of brand new special edition Blu-Ray edition or something then?

    ultimate edition blu-ray rerelease or something

    what was mildly amusing was half of them weren't glued together properly so people had to send off for replacements that didn't fall apart when they opened them

    The only anime I want to watch is Golden Time. But I'm not a Japanophile so I'm not too fussed.

    I'm an Final Fantasy fan though, so I guess I could get into anime if I give it a chance with Golden Time.

    Am stuck on deciding which of these series I should see next... & whether I should watch the dub or sub. SUCH CHOICES! :mad:

    Puella Magi Modoka Magica

    Clannad

    Kokoro Connect

    When in doubt, just go top to bottom :) I've not seen the last one but the first two are certainly very worthy of your time.

    Kokoro connect was a bit lacklustre, though still enjoyable. Stick with top to bottom.

    Madoka's great but heartbreaking

    Clannad's very good but expect tears

    Kokoro Connect is pretty good imo but it definitely isn't up to the level of the other two

    Oh look I found Tamaki's host club. Yes as you can tell I'm actually watching the first few episodes of The Ouran High School Host Club.

    I keep having this thread recommended to me, so I thought I'd swing by. Hi.

    I'm a pretty big anime fan. I spend -a lot- of time watching it. I see a couple of my favourites discussed/mentioned in the last few pages (Clannad, Puella Magi, Ouran High School Host Club, K-on!).

    Excuse me if this is a topic already discussed on the two-hundred past pages but what's been everyone's 2014 favourites? I'm always on the look out for new ones to watch :)
