Reflections was pretty radically different from the way the manga ended... of maybe better to say that it's a grim extension of what the future may have held after their son was born.

I've heard others describe Lucky Star as that but I think that's a bit of an exaggeration. Haruhi gets mentioned a lot but it's definitely not a commercial for Haruhi.

Well.. though I loved Lucky*Star (and its manga) I can't say I was amused by the ridiculous amount of "product placement" and industry promotion... NONE of which is in the manga. I'm one of those people who *liked* the first episode because it exemplified the manga's humor. A "George Burns" style of subtle long gags -- the musical scoring was perfect and would have fit in a Laurel and Hardy or other 'ancient comedy' scheme.

I imagine many people who bought the manga after watching the anime were confused (e.g. where's the manga store operator, etc)

I was confused about that for a while, but he turns up in the Lucky Star Moe Drill DS games with his lackeys (also other store's mascot characters who didn't show up in the anime appear as well). I've only played the first one a bit haphazardly, but the first game does predate the anime by over a year. Although the DS games could be considered advertisements for Fate/stay night, Da Capo, and some other games in their content.

Depends on the individual. For various reasons, some believe that anime versions should be drastically different (i.e. the creators of Dance in the Vampire Bund and Mayoi Neko Overrun. The Bakuman authors also wanted a different focus for the anime to attract new people to their manga - in their case, it worked).

Some mangaka don't really care about the anime at all, so long as it boosts the popularity of the original work. It's when an anime harms the potential sales of their product that they get pissed.

Quote:
Oreimo Episode 08 completely illustrates this.
It's also an indirect jab at light novels and the qualifications of many authors, not to mention the industry's tendency to adapt any (junk) product that has the slightest potential. Oreimo itself falls under what they're making fun of, and it's known that some people on the team weren't thrilled to be working on it (one animator was pissed that AIC left his name in the credits when he told them to leave it out).

The episode poked fun at the positions of original authors, anime writers, and producers. It certainly wasn't a piece intended to sympathize with authors, nor does it accurately portray the relationship between author and screenwriter.

I wonder how the authors of long-running manga like Hajime no Ippo and Case Closed feel about the adaptations of their works.

The author of the Fractale manga called the anime "uninteresting" and the director of the anime requested the manga be halted. I am not sure, but I think that the anime is not really based on the manga, but are just part of a multimedia project. The manga author later apologized and the manga is still ongoing

Wasn't that the artist of the manga? Or did the author put down the anime too?

No, hate was a pretty good word! He was pretty much frozen out of the creative process on the OVAs and there was a ton of resentment there (justified, IMO)

Anizawa Meito (the hot blooded manga store guy) predates Lucky Star. He's a character designed as the mascot for the retail store Animate. In fact, there was a short anime featuring him called Anime Tenchou animated by Gainax that was released in 2002.

Here's the ANN profile page for the anime:

Aye, in a sense he's no different than the "Initial D" reference insertion: a pre-existing anime meme inserted into the series. There was no reference at all in the manga existing at the time of production.

Some people loved the insertions... those of us who'd actually read the manga, meh.

Kiyohiko Azuma wasn't pleased with the anime adaption of Azumanga.
He also put a veto on any anime adaption of Yotsubato! The official explanation is that he thinks that kind of story isn't fit for an anime adaption, but I think he also fears he'd be displeased like it happened before. Frankly I can't think of any reason it wouldn't work in an anime format.

It's a pity because Azumanga Daioh is my favorite comedy anime and Yotsubato! is simply awesome.

Ah I see. When I read about the interview with him his answer was kinda like "um... It was okay, but I wished the ending was better and happier".
He didn't answer with those words exactly, but it felt like he was trying to say that, in my opinion. So I thought "hate" was a very strong word.

I personally think his interpretation ended up being more unique and worthwhile. Hard to think of many high school series that manage to top those first four episodes when it comes to young love.
Yes, she accused him of focusing to much on the comedy instead of the romance. I feel Anno's version is a vast improvement upon the original, which is nothing more than a decent shoujo romance imo. I wouldn't be surprised if that was the biggest problem for Tsuda.

Agreed. I think Ms. Takaya need to reboot Fruit Basket much like FMA: Brotherhood did to its 2003 version. No wonder there is no second season of that show despie already 9 years old.

PS: While this may an old rumor but Ouran High School Host Club second season is coming. Well, I though 07-Ghost and Togainu no Chi are annoying.

What's unique about this is that as opposed to movies, anime is almost expected to not have drastic variances in tone and outlook. Becasue the manga itself is already a hot media property.

I can kinda see why, I guess - though the manga was soooo much better imo I feel it would be hard to do a good adaptation of it without going for several seasons.

This is a surprise. I thought the anime adaptation for Azumanga was very well done. Hmm.

yeah, i never heard an adequate explanation of what he found so disappointing. I thought the adaptation was relatively spot on.

I thought the story on this was that he hated the process of the adaptation, not the actual final product. He disliked how the animation studio worked with him or something like that.
