Anyone else going to see this tonight at the theater?
>>
no
>>
>>20113550
Unfortunately no theater near me is playing the movie. So I cannot see the movie.
>>
>>20113792
GITS Imax is coming up as well.
>>
is this movie more of that awful CGshit they used for the series?
>>
>>20113799
>local cinema is actually showing GITS
>every single film time is while I'm in work
fuck
>>
>>20113550
I didn't actually realize it was getting a theatrical release. Pretty sure all the theaters near me are still closed so I even if I knew I doubt I'd have been able to go.
>>
Tsumugi a CUTE!
>>
When even the manga is fucking shit why would I waste my time on inferior adaptation?
>>
I for one am excited for it. Never got why this franchise fell off the radar so fast.
>>
>>20113550
Theaters are dead where I'm from
>>
>>20113550
Sure, it feels good to sneak in a six pack and bag of chips into a movie theater
>>
>>20119253
Because it starts as ambitious cosmic horror and ends up as generic monster girl harem.
>>
>>20119512
I think that's my one big problem with Nihei's work as a whole. He always shits the bed with the ending. Nothing I've ever read of his has ever stuck the landing. They always feel jumbled and rushed as if he's pressured by editorial to wrap it up every time.
>>
>>20119512
No it's a harem pretty early on and then it turns into freaky harem.

If anyone is interested the gits 4k imax run starts Thursday and Promare complete edition is Sunday.
>>
>>20119253
Sidonia was too "Nihei" for normies, but too "normie" for NIheifags.
>>
>>20122866
It's so weird that this appeals to me.
I guess I'm lucky.

>>20119512
>Because it starts as ambitious cosmic horror
Yeah this is what really pulled me in with Sidonia, those first few episodes really did a good job at giving a sense of existential dread from the threat of the gauna.
>>
>>20120471
>Promare complete edition
what's different from the original theatrical release?
>>
>>20122977
It supposedly has some prequel shorts, deleted stuff and the staff interviews. It is a longer pro-redux.
>>
>>20119557
Sidonia is Nihei's longest work to date afaik, and it's all the worse for it. The manga was such a slog to get through and, this is just speculation as I haven't started reading it yet, but his editor had him wrap up APOSIMZ quite suddenly last month for what I imagine are similar reasons. Short-form Nihei is best Nihei. Anything more than 6 volumes and his stories just fall apart.
>>
>>20119557
I dunno, Blame!'s non-ending is fitting, since it didn't have the beginning. It's prequel manga is the unnecessary one.
Abara's bad end is good poke at all those shitty "new adam and eve" endings in sci-fi media.

You may be right, Abara is one of my favorites of his because of how much is packed into those two volumes.

just got tickets for promare tonight
>>
>>20122991
>and it's all the worse for it
Aposimz is worse. Sidonia feels like Nihei got bored of it, or he just wanted to start a new project, so he ended it quickly. But Aposimz genuinely feels as if it was axed by his editors.
>>
>>20125829
It was absolutely axed. They just started introducing new concepts, creatures, one character seemed to be getting a slow power up. Alongside some other plot points ramping up. Then all of it goes down the drain in like 4 anti-climactic chapters which feature:
Everyone dying, The big epic penultimate battle happening offscreen, The final fight being short and mostly talking, not to mention all of the sudden reveals he had to drop out of nowhere just so things would make some sense. Honestly I feel really bad for Nihei on this one. Since he clearly still had story to tell.
>>
>>20119557
lets be honest most stories/books/movies don't often stick the landing especially longer form material.

Does Yuhata gone full tranny faggot like in the manga?
>>
>>20125933
yeah, the last 3rd of the manga was really promising to me until the ending.
I feel like Nihei should just start a patreon and work on stuff independantly.
I'm sure he has enough clout to do something like that and be successful.
>>
>>20128223
Nihei should have gave the middle finger to Japan long ago. Nihei had fans in the west way long before Sidonia debuted, and it always seems the west fans are more loyal than the ones in Japan.
>>
>>20122866
I really think he started Aposimz how he did as a deliberate rebuke of anime tropes and his work on Sidonia. Je killed off the traditional anime cast one volume in.
>>
>>20128181
Yuhata has like 3 scenes.

In all fairness, most of the genetic and biological tampering Sidonia's scientists have done over the centuries is probably spitting in God's face more than gender reassignment, which given their tech level on that front is probably far easier and more complete than it would be today. If they can take a giant artificially-engineered living weapon and seamlessly transfer its mind into a more or less normal human body or put someone's brain in a fucking bear, they can probably very easily engineer an opposite-sex body for someone to move to.
>>
>>20131704
It was really hard for me to take that fucking bear seriously.
>>
>>20131704
Just because it make sense, doesn't mean the story should pull that out. Male is an ugly gender and cock-Yuhata looks ugly.
>>
I don't know why but I find Kobayashi wearing her mask to be sexy as hell.

But the bear is an environmental suit, there's a whole human body inside of it. At least, as far as I remember. The human brain in bear body was in Biomega.
>>
>>20131879
What are you trying to convey with that red rectangle?
>>
Damn those characters look generic
>>
I loved how there was actually physics in Sidonia and how they were decelerating into combat and all that. I also loved Tsumugi and wished she would not have become human at the end because that is boring. Apart from that the manga really wasn't great, especially with the Harem (it should have just been Benisuzume clone (who was forgotten by Nihei) vs Tsumugi).
>>
>>20146597

>>Tsumugi became human

>>Yuhata became a dude and fucking Izana

Nihei should go back drawing weird buildings. He is a hack.

Pretty much the same. And yeah like you said no twin tail robot
>>
Didn't someone else switch from m to f in the manga?
>>
>>20148219
Izana. But the reason she turned into female was because she loves Nagate. She was hermaphrodite, unlike Yuhata where she was simply a tranny faggot.
>>
>>20148235
bro you are straight up retarded Yuhata was exactly the same as Izana, just with a more feminine haircut. not like I expect much from a dumb chud like you lol
>>
>>20148254
No. The story only pointed out Izana as hermaphrodite.

Yuhata is female, but at the end of the manga, she got surgery and implants to became a cyborg male.

This manga is retarded on so many levels.
>>
>>20148262
Hermaphrodite is BOTH male and female, Izana was NEITHER.
>>
Yuhata and Izana kinda fuck in the sub airlock.
