Who here love Darker Than Black? Me? Yes. I friggen loved it! The ending was perfect the way it was! Then they go along and make a sequel to a perfectly fine anime. At first I think: Hmm, maybe this wont be so bad... Boy was I wrong! I cried my self to sleep! (Kidding!) They SPOILER WARNING: Click here to reveal hidden content.
and add an aggravating pubescent girl who makes me die inside when ever I think of her. I thought, whatever, just another spoiled series. Nothing new right? But these occurrences have been increasing! It's spreading like Swine Flu.
It started not so long ago...
First there was Mai-Hime's spin off: Mai-Otome. Mai-Hime was so emotional and the plot was fully developed. I thought it was great. They go and make Mai-Otome and the plot is almost non-existent and the characters... don't get me started!
Then came the dreaded Naruto. They left us with a cliff hanger... as expected of an anime. They make Shippuden. In my opinion Shippuden is much better than the first season, but I mean come on! Naruto was long enough as it was, now there is another never ending season! Please end Naruto! The plot is dead! you can no longer resuscitate the series... finish it... there is no more hope.
Then comes Dragon Ball. I don't think I can count all the seasons, spin-offs and sequels there are. I don't even know what it's about anymore. Why must animators do this? You are going to loose viewers, not gain them, if you drag along a series like that. It's like dragging a dead cow through the streets... nobody wants it.
Inuyasha... No explanation is needed. I don't even know what it's about.
Darker Than Black, Full Metal Alchemist, Death Note, est., est.
Mind you there are some damn good sequels around. Code Geass R2 was amazing! And they needed it to end the series. Gundam SEED DESTINY was OK and was not unnecessary... the ending sucked but other than that it was good! Hetalia Axis Powers' second season is better than the first and is necessary to complete the series. Gundam 00 season 2, also good and wasn't dragging on a dead plot. The list goes on... But you get my point.
A lot of unnecessary sequels are being made, please, please... if your going to make a sequel make it A) Good B) Worthwhile.
