>even after the Netflix series tanked and was loathed by everyone outside of ResetERA, Titan are still pushing ahead with their spinoff comics

Why even bother at this stage? Wouldn't it make more sense at this point to just quietly cancel it?
>>
But I believe one day the petition will save the world
https://www.change.org/p/netflix-save-the-live-action-cowboy-bebop
>>
>>128239292
Contracts were signed before Netflix Bebop was released and launching the comic is probably less expensive that breaking the contracts
>>

I watched the show. Personally I didn't think it that bad. Then I saw Ed, and I'm perfectly okay with this show being cancelled.

Memes-aside, who actually is the demographic for all these really bad live-action anime adaptions coming out of America? I mean fucking hell, Adi Shankar was going on about wanting to get a Hellsing series off the ground. You'd think Dragonball Evolution would've scared them off the idea.

Japs and weaboos hate this shit because it fucks with the source material and actual movie/TV enthusiasts hate this shit because they're always bad on their own merits.

Once upon a time capeshit adaptations tanked and were panned and laughed at more often than not too, until they started raking all the money in the world.

>Ed was always cringe
Cringe.

>>128239474
So if it didn’t have Ed, and you weren’t lead to believe they’d do what they did with Ed, would you have wanted another season?
>>
>>128239729
Sadly live action attracts 10x the audience of animated shows, Arcane was the best looking western show ever and the second season of Witcher still destroyed it in viewership despite being a travesty both on its own and as an adaptation of the book it's based on. They're hoping one day they'll get the formula right and have a whole new free source of tested ideas to avoid having to take a risk on an original live action show. It's like how video game developers keep trying to introduce paid mods every couple of years and there's a big backlash and they backtrack to try again in a different way at a later date.

Depends on the country.
That's definitely not the case everywhere, in fact I'd argue that live action and animation are pretty evenly-split in terms of the audience they can attract in countries like Japan and China.

Am drunk so repeated super hacker. But really. Ed was always awful and is the least of the Netflix show's problems.

Is only a concession that you have lower standards for tonal dissonance and performance in that medium than others and the sooner you can accept that we can discuss the more important failings of the Netflix show like Vicious.

Seems like a good call to me. Even though the show was cancelled it seems to have a decently sized fanbase begging for more. Might as well just publish the comics you already had planned to see if any of that fan interest shifts to the comics instead of just canceling it outright.

I actually though the direction they took things was interesting if a bit wacky, and I would've liked another season. Felt like a cheap fan parody and had a charm to how silly they were willing to get.

Ed was a disaster though. Thank god she's only on screen in the very last minute.

Half the reason I like anime is because of the animation, it's in the fucking genre description. So getting rid of that is already betraying part of what made whatever the original was so great. It's the same reason I don't care for adaptations of video games. What the fuck is Devil May Cry without the gameplay?
>>
>Spike
Spike at the time seemed too old, but the ending of the season more or less justifies it. A younger hothead wouldn't have the time to live the life Spike did, or develop his cynicism.
>Jet
Jet's casting was perfect. Literally everything I wanted in a live action Jet, probably the best part of the adaptation.
>Faye
Hated Faye, felt like a try hard edgelady, way out of character for the original, nevermind the lack of sex appeal and the "LOOK, A GAY" representation.
>Ed
Completely indifferent. Ed is very challenging to pull off right, but an attempt was made. I think a more subtle introduction would have been better, something that showcases her hacking ability off the bat, and have the character act more like an unsocialized but energetic NEET.
>>
>>128243579
>It's the same reason I don't care for adaptations of video games. What the fuck is Devil May Cry without the gameplay?

Not to mention they're about as mediocre as your average live-action adaptation of either an anime or even that mediums own bouts with video games

Went back to watch the original after decades, its still amazing.
I also loved how wisely spent their budget animating tit jiggle for Faye.

They cost nothing to make and distribute in comic book stores reaching an important audience and is cheaper over other forms of conventional mass media marketing avenues such as television and the Internet.

It should also be said that companies have basically no way to reach the target nerd audience anymore. Hence why shifting the target audience to mass market appeal is so important because it's so much easier to reach normal people through conventional means.

>>128244640
The american comicbook store customer base is miniscule though. The percentage interested in buying thse kind of tie-ins is a tiny minority of even that dwindling market. In contrast, the audience for the original source material is far more likely to be attracted by manga, which enjoys a far wider addressable market.

That was more a function of the studios not taking them seriously and trying to franchise them on the cheap.
Superman: the Movie was the biggest movie of it's year, won a special Oscar, and made almost a billion in adjusted gross, a record at the time.
Batman '89 came out and did exactly the same thing. Both went south in sequels because WB is absolutely abysmal with franchise management.
Fox studios has always struggled with superhero movies.

All-in-all, it's more due to the studio's attitude towards the genre than the audience's. The masses love a great superhero story, and always have. Comic book superheroes were hugely popular all the way back to the 1940's.

Anime is hard to convert because the dialogue often translates badly from Moonspeak, and the Japanese broadly are a society of autists.

Hollywood only wants to adapt pre-existing IPs into movies these days, even if there's good reason to think it's a bad idea this gives anime and manga adaptations a leg up. Being based on something also means there's free marketing. If you announce that you're making a live action Cowboy Bebop people are going to talk about it much more than if it was original, even if a huge chunk of that talk is negative it still means people are aware it exists.

A little bit off-topic, but I finally watched the Fatal Frame movie last week after seeing numerous people over the years cite it as one of the few good videogame movies out there - though this may be a bit disingenuous since it's actually an adaptation of a spinoff novel rather than any of the games specifically. All I have to say is what an absolute load of crap, it was extremely mediocre. Aside from some nice cinematography, it had nothing going for it. It wasn't scary (or even particularly creepy), most of the acting was terrible, the ghost who you only see a few times is just a pretty teenage girl with some pale makeup and the pacing was all over the place. Not to mention that the only real sort of connection to the games at all was the Camera Obscura being it in for a few minutes with no real explanation. I get that it was pretty low-budget and I just watched some rip on YouTube that had pretty dodgy subtitles, but I must've been watching a different movie to everyone else.

Has anyone else here seen it? I'm curious if it's just me not getting something.

A forum that spun-off from NeoGAF. Basically, overtime the majority of the forum became completely insane with backwards woke politics and other batshittery that they eventually even me-too'ed the site's own owner. The craziest ones(most of them) migrated to a new forum called ResetERA to carry on with their craziness (and make a lot of money in the process). Think of Twitter, but somehow even more insane.

Resetera is basically a metaphor for America, which was similarly founded by the most batshit puritanical fuckjobs that migrated from England in the 1600s after they were all kicked out of the country for being over-the-top crazy.

There's a lot of live adaptations that aren't listed, like Fist of the North Star, JoJo Part 4, Lupin III, City Hunter, Kakegurui, among others.

>>128247026
The problem is, the entire reason you think the show was "fantastic" is because you have a fetish for diversity and such things. The show actually wasn't good to everybody else, hence why it got bad reviews and why no one watched it.

>>128247031

>>128246273
It's funny anon.
If you had said the same thing to me about 7 years ago or so, I'd have agreed with you whole-heartedly.
But I gave it a shot. Now it's grown on me because the art style is, well, different. I like unique stuff. Stuff that's creatively or artistically novel. Maybe not for its own sake, but because of the passion of the creator simply has developed into their own personal style.
Not to say I mind or dislike more "traditional" styled anime, but art that stands out on its own without trying hard to be different is a very hard thing to describe.
To answer your question more directly:
I dunno. I gave it a chance and it stuck with me.

Valerian. if your adaption isnt doing a complete 180 in terms of tone and direction or isnt a visual spectacle, finally giving things that were scribbles in between pages life, you're wasting everyones time.
whatever franchise is being adapted your focus should be to get people interested in whatever they wouldnt normally watch or read anything from that franchise. it wasnt a coincidence netflix forked out money to sunrise to get a 30 year old cartoon a week before their live action one came out or got the original composer to make a brand new soundtrack. sunrise doesnt care about cowboy bebop. if it isnt selling gundums it didnt exist

The tranny didn't actually say that though. I read the clickbait article it actually attaches to and they literally took its words out of context to get hits.

If they were going to cast an old man as Spike, they might as well have use Keanu.

Yes, the comicbook store stereotypical customer base is small, but the foot traffic of comicbook stores has widely expanded to anybody looking for nerd shit like parents and grandparents looking for presents. The comicbook store is no longer this place exclusive to a clientelle, it's become like a store that only deals in wine. Sure, you can buy all your shit from Amazon or the mall but for the people who still want to physically go shopping and want that feel like they've walked into an exotic land filled with experts in fucking cartoon bullshit they don't understand but their children want.

The average nerd is too smart to spend their money in comicbook shops anymore, I know three owners and that's the same story across the board. Comicbook/games stores make the bulk of their money off the one-timers who are looking for something special they refuse to buy at Walmart or nerd whales who reliably buy hundreds of dollars a shit every month.

A Cowboy Bebop comic in these will often be put on the "new" shelf front and centre not having to compete with normal bookstore content like Chapters or Target. And those people will see it, and when they see that the movie is playing at the theatres they'll think "Oh yeah I saw that thing in the comicbook store" and that will affirm their conviction to give it a try because the most effective marketing tool is making someone see something for the first time so that the second time they see it they'll be reminded it's not foreign or scary and try it.

He's from an anime, they all either look white or like some absurd stereotype. Spiegel's a Hebrew name but they didn't give him a huge nose or a hassid beard so his ethnicity is "indeterminate"

They're not, they just want millenniums to get proper/real jobs and stop leaching off off Social Security so that we can get out economy back from China, because only 5% of people who are on Social Security actually need it.

Heck, Nu-Animaniacs cause over 8 million people to ditch Social Security and get real jobs that were once thought to be only available in China.

If only they called it a cowboy bebop gaiden or something to indicate it would only have surface level elements of cowboy bebop...
I didn't hate it, I just resent that it set out to be the opposite of what it was stated to be. I LIKED Barret Jet, I LIKED fruity uncle spike, and I could live with this faye if she wasn't complicit in the psyop of making latinos gay. Hell, I even wanted to see how evil julia and this ed turned out (though I guess THAT carreer could do with being quietly nipped at the bud without being given a chance to crash and burn to the applause of SJWs, a la ghostbusters 2016). But it should have been advertised as an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT ALTERNATE TAKE on cowboy bebop. And shot more cheaply if it was going to look like a high budget youtube fanseries anyways.

Okay, let me be perfectly honest:
Cowboy Bebop sounds like it would've been far too easy to adapt into live-action. It's like the opposite of trying to make Watchmen work as anything other than a comic, it's so easy to work in live-action that it would've been boring.
Doesn't shock me that Netflix screwed up doing just that.
Hopefully the comic won't be written by shit eaters that wrote on fucking cop shows like their own show.

>>128245061
I thought this too, that one of the reasons of why anime doesn't translate well vs comic book movies is because of the cultural differences, like the humor.
>>
>>128244919
I have an idea for how to make a live-action Akira movie: Don't even attempt to make it faithful.
I was kind of thinking of something like an exaggerated satire of how anime has impacted America and the American media, a little like Fight Club except the movie has some kind of respect for its audience.

They don't know what gaiden means, let alone know how to say it.
