Marvel Disk Wars: the Avengers (ディスク・ウォーズ：アベンジャーズ)
I want to hate this. I want to hate this. I want to hate this. Few reasons include.... Needless costume changes... You put Captain American in that crappy suite....But Spider Man is spared? Thor looks like he does mostly from the movies.. an that brings up the its nothing like the movies or the comic universe deal.
So treating it like a anime version of What If comic its not horrible. But its not great or good. Watchable for a kids anime. An rember its aimed at kids... even tho comic fans average age now is closer to 30 than not. If it does not play on multiple levels an soon, this will be a 3 strikes/episodes deal for me at best.
Made it to episode 2
An mostly I try not to post on anime that I dislike. But it wasn't that great but watchable pilot. But the 2nd episode just was horrid. Well for me any way. The writing was bad , the animation was lackluster, the costume redesigns grated on me even more, an the illustration style was even worse.
It short I dont want to hate this, tried not to hate this. But it burns with so many mistakes just can not watch any more. If this was a set up for a product line they botched it so badly.
Edit actualy it was so bad not even gona watch more anime tonight. Need a pallet mind cleanser.
Well, it is aimed at kids. This isn't for the comic book fans, at all. It is for the kids who watch the movies
But, this is a dumb idea. If this came out when I was a kid, I would just change the channel (like I did with Silver Surfer). I wondering what is worst, this show or Avengers United They Stand
I have a feeling this will fail
@Destinyheroknight: It kinda almost feels like its based on the movies.. kinda. But if I was a kid today this would be a insult.An same as you I would turn the channel.
Worse yet this has subtitles an Detective Conan ( which is also aimed at kids but has that Flintstones multi tier maturity level ) as of this last season has struggled even to get fan subs.
Smart play would have been to do the multi tier maturity to it. The reason the movies are doing so well is they are not aimed at kids. But kids love them.Worst thing you can do in life is talk down to a kid. Dumb down the content for them an they are bored.
Worse even yet. Anime as a whole seems to me has a maturity level higher than state side kids programing. This has a maturity level below even that.
edit : um at least 3 of the team member in the vid look like their comic versions an the big 3 look spot on. in disk wars you only have two that look like even their movie counter parts.
Agree, this is a cash grab. The worst part about it, Marvel probably will have it dub and bring over here. I feel sorry for Detective Conan, even though I not a huge fan of it. The fan subs, they usually go after popular Anime. If I was a fan subber I will go after Anime that isn't popular over here and stop subbing shows that will come over here.
Yeah, it is so dumb. If they just look at shows that did well, they would make more money with this. But no, they only think about what is hot now and try to milk it dry
I think a better example is Digimon, Digimon is doing the same thing, but they put effort into the story and characters
The reason why they did that, because it probably match the toys better with that design
@Destinyheroknight: Cash grabs do not have to be dumbed down so badly. Heck it could even be a money maker is say Bandi had done it. Its silly they did not even look at old shows that made toy lines money, an how well they were done. Heck im watching Majin Bone an its aimed at kids an it feels like old school shonen , has simple illustration style that looks clean an the jokes are at middle school to high school level. Bandi is doing it an this is the same target market to.
Unless Marvel disk wars is aimed at say 5 year olds an under. An even then sheesh thats just so down played. At 5 i was reading ( an understanding some of the words ) Marvels The invaders . Heck even understood The Mighty Destroyer was the brit version of the super soldier version of Cap America even.An by no means would I be considered smart so this is just awful.
Makes me feel bad about bad mouthing this anime. But good lord save the kids from this! err Think of the children! Or something like that.
I know, that why I show you that Digimon clip (I probably should have said a bad cash grab)
Bandai cost money, they got a (somewhat) new studio to save money. They didn't have enough fate in this, so they just throw it at the new guys. It funny that both Bandai and Toei was involved with this, they both make good kids shows. I guess both are busy with other things
I think the kids are smart enough to change the channel, so I believe this will tank and they will have to rethink this show
@Destinyheroknight: Now this is just paranoid speculation ... but could they have botched this on purpose? The whole we do not need the western influence thing.
I know this was sold as a way to gain market share in Japan. An the Madhouse Marvel anime versions did not exactly light up the ratings. But those were 10 times better than this. An before the Marvel movie universe took hold. The west really does not know how to market to the east at all. So it would be easy to sale them this as way in.
I don't think so, I think they just focus on franchises that they own, and don't want to pay the middle man if it become popular. That why Majin Bone is better then Disk Wars, because they have more control over it and will get more money out of it. Think it more about greed then anything else
