Just out of curiosity, doesn't the title literally mean "Katana (sword) Stories"?

SquirrelLuvsPnut, I'm afraid your spoiler is entirely correct.

Yes, pretty much.

Westlo, is the story really that bad? Or the writing?

Thank you so much for acknowledging my post since it was just deleted by a mod! It makes me feel a little better. At least now, I know what to expect in this series. I still have high hopes for this one!

We really shouldn't talk about the novel that extensively here since I don't think it's allowed.

It's not allowed. If people want to talk about the novel, then do so in a novel thread. If there isn't one, create one.

Personally I don't know.. but I've posted on the same forum as Andrew for many years and I know his tastes rather well. Also his Katana review makes it rather clear the "tragedy" at the end has nothing to do with why he thinks Katana fails.

Here read it for yourself.

Well thats not a half bad review. He needs to come to touch with people don't like word "regret", so in that respect it is a "bad" review, heh. If he's right it might make into a good anime, though it would suck as a book; nothing like reading a theatrical script to get you bored. I hope its not too theatrical, well I mean hope they don't make it into one; though I suppose Sinji needs more images for his signature now and then, so its inevitable one will come along.

What happened this day with series production materials isn't really funny at all.
I worry about fate of the series.

PS: I don't think there is much point in hiding it when it's all over Youtube.

Really isn't, I thought the script leak is only related to episode 1, but apparently it's all 12, which ... is kinda ...

Admittedly, if you really want spoilers you COULD just read the novel (or ask on a message board). I still have strong faith in the quality, but for the non-novel reader they have a high potential to be spoiled in a way, also the period where you are waiting for the next episode is also ruined because well ... the script's floating everywhere <__<.

I'm still just hoping the DVD/BR sales do well and WHITE FOX doesn't incur lawsuit/losses over this. I honestly like this young company.

What was leaked was not just the material but their FTP credentials for Katanagatari project. Someone posted it on 2ch. Judging from the file list, what was leaked are:
  • Character settings of all characters, including all variants (childhood, etc.)
  • Final version of the script, 10 episodes worth.
  • Draft scripts for episodes 11 and 12.
  • OP song, full version, instrumental and TV edited, in lossless format.
  • Pre-check storyboards, 8 episodes worth.
  • Episode 1's ED song.
Ugh, this is definitely a serious issue. Especially when it's not leaked via P2P like all previous cases (in other studios). Being able to access production's FTP is likely to be a Production Managerů

Indeed, the FTP (after 4 hours at the time of this post)'s login still hasn't been changed.

EDIT: I think the reaction was first are they doing this on purpose? Then the second is this happened by chance and there's no way they would include the songs if it's just some type of viral marketing.

And scripts, and storyboards… but apparently, the leaked account seems to be of external staff's, not WHITE FOX's own. That's a bit relief on WHITE FOX's part, I hope.

This is just raw provider, who turns out to be a person I know, being stupid like always.
Events are unrelated.

This is pretty damn serious. I hope it doesn't do any damage to the upcoming air date, or the future of the show.

I can't really understand why the leak is so bad. I mean, I know it's undesirably, but why would that deter people from watching the anime?

I don't believe anyone has posted anything to do with that.

More like the worry is to do with the show seeing problems. Hopefully it won't.
