In a case where the source material is finished, deviating from it serves no other purpose than to piss off the fanbase. The only thing they might change is the second half because of the amount of hate it's generated, but the anime more than likely won't even be touching that part.

Not really. It just gives a different reason to watch the anime. We'll see how it goes when it gets there though.

This is correct. I mentioned Tsukihime for a reason. The Tsukihime anime is ignored among most of the fans of the original VN because its story doesn't follow any arc from the VN .. however when they made the anime they wanted the anime to be a new experience for the fans rather than just the same thing they already know.

I do not believe that this is the case for Usagi Drop.

I don't know how many episodes this series is going to be, my theory is that it will probably be 12/13 episode series and there will not be enough time to follow the second half of the story.

No, it's ignored because it's bad. It mashes incompatible storylines (and in one odd instance, characters) together into one, drops personalities, ignores important and driving plot elements (I'm looking at you, Sacchin), ruins or completely ignores some of the best scenes (Chaos fight), and doesn't make a damn lick of sense by the end of it.

Also, if you watch it dubbed, the dub is typical God-awful Geneon garbage. Akiha's voice made me want to kill her, and I love Akiha.

P.S. Fate/stay night's anime was bad for the same reasons, it just wasn't as bad.

The whole point is that these works are independent from their originals and should not be compared to them. This should be the case for all of these unless its stated that It is intended to be a Direct transition from whatever to Anime.

I'm curious what kinds of nonsense people say about the Kara no Kyōkai Movies or maybe they cant say much because most people haven't read the books so the movies are more easily accepted since there is nothing to gauge them against.

. . . Who actually watches dubed Anime? That's almost as dumb as dubing hentai.

The books are all translated. The only complaints people really have are that the sixth movie was handled rather poorly, but the entire series is regarded as being great.

Then again, you're not looking at a studio that's not good at adaptations (J.C. Staff or DEEN), and you're looking at novels, which only have one plot line.

VN adaptations are almost always going to be awful compared to the source material. Hell, even linear VNs like Higurashi and Umineko have terrible anime adaptations. It's just not possible to condense them into a TV series and leave all the good stuff intact.

wow I didn't know they translated the books, I'll have to check them out sometime. . . I don't usually venture beyond anime land but this is Type-Moon.


Anyways Episode 6 was XD.

Well they're not officially translated (Del Rey picked them up but then never did anything with them), but translations are available online.

Daikichi's learning a lot about family and marraige. I like how they're doing this show, and I can't wait to see more =^0^=

Indeed it is. I just spent the night at work watching the 9 episodes. I was quite impressed.

Spoiler:
Rin's mom seems to care about her a lot more than she did before. I'm curious as to whether that will come into play.

Played Catch up yet again.

And the show continues to be unbearably adorable, and I continue to empty out my tear ducts every episode ~

Spoiler:
I DO get the feeling she may decide to take Rin back, or at least to start being a presence in her life.


This is the perfect show to watch, you just watch an episode and you feel good for some reason ~
