What was that random rant that had nothing to do with anything?
The "anime" industry in the U.S. is on life support at the moment due to a number of factors. It certainly isn't anywhere as "thriving" as it was even two years ago.Originally Posted by MasterTrainer
The movie is an incoherent mess that steals every cliche in the book and does nothing new with them. This isn't a revolutionary film...it's a by-the-numbers, take-no-risks popcorn flick that was clearly influenced more by executives than "fans" or "people who give a shit."So this is what it is, in my sights DBE was supposed to be the breakthrough, the milestone, the spark that starts it all.
Starts what? Simply a revolution...a revolution that overthrows the existing order of awful predictable and stale movie franchises that have been recycled over and over replacing it with what most of the world hasn't seen...the world that is anime.
"Anime" is simply the Japanese word for "cartoon" - nothing more, nothing less.How long is anime going to be regarded as just another cartoon by the rest of the world
Pretending that it's anything more than that is just delusional.
