Remember when Pokemon used to be a decent watch? My childhood does.
ok hunter x hunter has the story to continue but what about anime that doesnt should they create a villain out of their ass to get a more episodes going
Considering the author's situation, Hunter x Hunter is virtually finished. Yeah it's still on hiatus, but I doubt Togashi will come back and make enough chapters in time for the anime to continue the series (it's already too late since they're almost caught up).
no i mean just any story anime and manga alike if there is no story to make dont pull something out of your ass if it makes sense and fits in the story then by all meansConsidering the author's situation, Hunter x Hunter is virtually finished. Yeah it's still on hiatus, but I doubt Togashi will come back and make enough chapters in time for the anime to continue the series (it's already too late since they're almost caught up).
Do you mean an anime adaptation where the main story is finished and yet the anime still continues? Can you give an example because it's usually the other way around.
He plays Dragon Quest. But Ruin is also right
From what I heard, Log Horizon is pretty much what SAO should have been :p
He's also sitting on Yu Yu Hakusho money, so that helps.
GitS wasn't even long and it had quite a few Standalone episodes that were just short stories with no relation to the main plot.
Pokemon was never a good show.
Oh, she was terrible long before oberon. Not that oberon is a good villain or anything, but the problem with him is that he never had a personality. He's just pure evil and that's it, there's nothing interesting about him past that. Like a Disney movie villain with none of the flavor and awkward sexual stuff thrown in.
And this is why One Piece is the most popular series in JapanI honestly don't believe it's at all possible to make a really long running anime can go with an actual strong running goal. It has to be either a journey sort of thing, where the running goal is super loose so 90% of it is adventures on the way to the goal, or have no real centralized goal at all (like american cartoons.) If you try to actually tell one big story instead of 1000 small stories, you end up with a big problem somewhere along the way where it just seems silly that the characters haven't achieved whatever they were trying to achieve. And then you look down and realize you've been beating a large pile of bonemeal that used to be a dead horse.
It's all about the expanded universe- don't just tell one story, tell a whole bunch of them and weave a massive web of canon. I think that's the biggest reason One Piece is doing so much better than Naruto and Bleach right now.
Popularity =/= the best. And I'm talking about the manga, not the anime (the anime is pretty terrible). But in terms of volume sales, merchandise, etc. it's hard to deny it isn't the most popular
I would have tagged it, but I honestly don't think I spoiled anything significant unless you're really bad at picking up on generic anime sexual tension.
well, yeah. XD as long as you don't say popularity =/= quality, I am good with that.
Those are 3 different things though, they only share the same characters but aren't related so it doesn't count. You can watch Arise without watching anything else and you won't be missing out on anything.That's why it worked. And I'd say the whole series was fairly long.
Ghost In The Shell Movie(82 Minutes)
Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence(100 minutes)
Stand Alone Complex(26 episodes)
2nd Gig(26 episodes)
Solid State Society(110 minutes)
Arise(Still in production, 3 episodes finished currently)
So in total 52 episodes with more in the pipeline, and 292 Minutes of film which is just short of 5 hours. If you want the whole GITS experience, there is a lot of content to catch up on and I would certainly call it a long series.
well of course. everyone knows SEED is garbage and anyone who likes it deserves to be burned at the stake.
No they're not, the original movies, the anime series + movie and Arise aren't related. They're not prequels or sequels to each other.That is not a fair assessment. Arise is a prologue. Therefore it happens before anything else in the series.
All of them are related. They are in the same universe, same characters, and occur in a set time period relative to other canon events in the series including the minimal character growth. For example, the reason why SAC spoiler
Motoko doesnt straight up die at the end of stand alone complex, is a result of her old self merging with the autonomous AI at the end of the original movie.
If I remember correctly that is but im pretty sure I do. That part of the movie also has relevance to Solid State Society.
But if you hold true to what you said, you must also state that ALL of the sagas in DragonBallZ are not related in any way whatsoever just because Buu Saga happens like 9 years after Cell Saga.
