And thanks for the info, though I hope Klan gets more screentime in the next one.

Another review of the movie

I can't believe I actually listened to the entire audio file (which was like -- 2 hours???). I must have been desperate


Edit: On an unrelated note, Happy Thanksgiving and Aidil Adha! 'Tis a time to celebrate pilgrimage, huh?

Well, to be fair, I didn't understand a thing they said, so....

The songs were nice to listen to though. I like Ranka's CM songs a lot -- am thinking of getting the album.

I succumbed to temptation and am listening to it now. Pretty decent quality I might say.

That's good to hear. I may give in, and listen to it later

This thread has been open for 11 days, and the title still hasn't been corrected.

A: I'll make it clear for the movie.

I think it is pretty clear that he meant this movie. At least to the interviewers. He clearly was dissembling and I really don't get why this is in question. Tons of PR people do it all the time.
You're quoting the translation there, so I'm not sure I'd call it an "exact quote".
Kawamori-sensei actually said "eiga no toki ni ha chanto kangaenakya yo ne"

Which is actually quite vague. I would translate it as "It's something I/we really have to think about for the movie(s)"

(Remember that Japanese doesn't differentiate between singular and plural for most things, so I'd say he's talking about both movies, since they form one story. I can't catch the next bit - sounds like he's either saying "thank you" or adding "how it will work out", but it's pretty quick so I'm assuming it's not that important.)

So it's not even clear whether there will be a clear resolution, though some people already to think otherwise based on the first movie.

I figured as much, even if he had said that first line, it could mean anything really.

I've read that some already think they know who is going to be chosen based on the first movie, but I still believe it's far too early to say so although it does seem pretty convincing from the spoilers I've read. Still, the second movie can do just about anything in terms of the LT so I'd rather not be too hasty and start jumping to conclusions. As far as we know, the second movie will be a continuation of the TV series or at least some new plot development.

Ah, thanks. Since nobody of our normal Japanese speaking residents had said anything, I figured that the translation was accurate. Oh, well, in this case Kawamori is exonerated. Again.

Really? From the spoilers I've read it seems pretty much up in the air, but then again Ranka seems much improved over the TV version. I guess we'll have to see for ourselves when the first rips come out.

It definitely still is up in the air considering there is still another 2 hours left for the completion of this unique take on the TV series.

As for Ranka's character development so far, it's amazing. I'm impressed at how they've handled her character from what I've read and it's just like I once said, her fault as a character was more in the portrayal rather than development. 2 steps forwards, one step back in the TV series but they seem to have covered that in the movie. Still, I want to actually see the damn thing

well...the more you learn the more you realise how little you know. For my part, it means I tend not to trust translations unless I have no choice, hough...I probably wouldn't have looked for the video if I hadn't left my homework at work and thus had a lot of time on my hands.

Kawamori-sensei has been in the business long enough, I'm sure, to not promise something he won't deliver.

wrt the movies, I'm inclined to take it as a retelling rather than a continuation of the series, just because of the extent they've changed the character relationships. Perhaps it's closer to what Kawamori-sensei intended in the first place (if those rumours(?), that the Sheryl's development really took previously unintended turns as the series went on, are true).

Well, for me it was one step forward, three steps back, but otherwise I agree.

I am a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan of when the series was still running. I know all about a head writer who continually lies to the fans, believe me. Maybe I was projecting a bit Joss Whedon on Kawamori, since Kawamori is also such a talented writer.

Errr, those specific rumours fall under the "stuff Shaloom made up in his fake liner notes" area, I believe.

There are too many serious responses here.

Also, the thread's title is still cracking me up. Seriously.

well...this thread is supposed to be more focused on actual discussion of the movie...

From what little I've seen and read about Kawamori, he seems rather charismatic...though I don't know what that might mean about his integrity. Hm...about Joss Whedon, really? never knew that about him...

Touche...I should learn to read the FAQ, especially since I haven't been following Frontier for months...

Believe, being there as Shalooms house of cards came crashing down was worth. OTOH, since I was the guy who spent 4 whole days translating his stuff, before people realized it was bunk... I am still not decided if I am pissed off or embarassed at having been unwittingly part of all this drama.

I agree completely.

In any case, I wouldn't put it behind Kawamori to use the movies to strengthen each relationship to a point where the Triangle is entirely viable. Changing Ranka into a childhood friend = genius to the triangle. Since she's a childhood friend, she's no longer just a whiny girl who tried to insert herself in Alto's life. Mmm, I can very well picture a Polygamous marriage between the three.

We all know that AxS was canon in the TV series even though Kawa tried to play it off at the end as a standoff. I'm afraid Sheryl had too much of an upper hand by the end of the series.

Sorry, I don't think so...I don't mind if you use the term "some viewers", but definitely not "We"
