It's hard to think of questions without being franchise specific.

@Vapovile:

The chanting is from Akira. Yeah, I had the same question, too. When I watch Akira on Toonami back in 2013, I realize the chant that Tom and Sam Weller did is a homage to this movie.

Few questions here .Wild speculation is aceptable if noted as wild speculation.

Given that the director of the new Lupin the thrid live action due out this year says " There's no meaning to a live-action film adaptation if you make the setting the same. I intend to change the characters themselves to make them modern. It would be nonsense for Goemon to exist in current society wearing samurai's garb and carrying around a katana." Also consider most fans of the series are rather ticked about the lack of character knowledge by the director, an why that same statment aplies when Lupin was out in the 70s as well. How badly will this film fail ? Has Hollywood infected Japan with its loosely based adaption stance?

Considering that Space Dandy episode 1 was leaked before the TV premire, will this hamper more series to be dual released in Japans an America?

Being entertained is one thing.Being entertained enuff to shell out dead presidents is another. Thinking back on the last two years of anime which shows would you buy on Blueray?

How long before we see this ps3 exclusive ...

Made into a blueray with all 4 short films? Xam'd: Lost Memories was also a playstation network exclusive but eventualy got its own disc release.

What is you all's opinions on anime series that deviate vastly from the manga counterpart? Examples would be Full Metal Alchemist and Soul Eater(the latter half). Is this a wise move on the anime company, or should they strictly follow the manga (Filler notwithstanding).

Pepsi or Coca cola?

Simple question this time; What conventions, anime or otherwise, do you both plan on going to this year, if any?

Now that Crunchyroll is legally streaming Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, RubberLuffy and the gang are wondering if you're going to do some coverage on the series. Now, it's in the books.

We anime fans discuss the meat of their favorite shows, but how often do we talk about the opening and ending animation?

So I'd like to discuss 2 OPs that deserve to be compared, because they share the same theme. The call is yours: is The Kill la Kill or Samurai Flamenco 2nd OP better?

Define when a writer pads a story vs anime filler. The two are very difrent things.

As i understand it when a writer pads a story its still in contect of the story. Just adding more flesh to the story bones needed or not for extra run time.

Anime filler can be a whole side story , chapter , season, or story arc with some of the main characters or side character but does not have effect on the original story.Diviation from the source material in chapter or story arc form can fall into this if it does not tie into the main story.

Think there is some confusion on terms an what is what would help in reviews etc.
