I’m back again with some more anime content! (Okay, yes, this is a filler post, but who cares?)
Recently, well actually not really, I’ve made a She Games about Persona 5. (Still haven’t played it a bunch yet, I’m working on that.) And as I tried to look if there was an animation out for it, I only saw that there’s a one episode animation called The Day Breakers that was aired before the game in order to get fans hyped about the release.
However, that changed when I saw a post on Twitter about a new show coming out for 2018.
I was certainly excited, and my friend who plays the game also confirmed the news to me. I don’t know what to expect from the animation, I know P4 has one as well, but I haven’t seen it yet and wouldn’t know the pros and cons compared to the game.
Lots of games that get a series out of them don’t always end up pleasing the audience they were made for. For example I’ve heard multiple sides of Danganrompa compared to the game from friends I know who’ve played it. And there’s also some people who aren’t into those live actions of their favorite games, like Assassin’s Creed.
I’d like to bring a point that I’ve heard from someone else, to whom I agree with. Adaptations are simply what they mean. If you look up the word, you’ll see words like “modify” or “alteration” with it. There are lots of people, even I’m guilty of it, who don’t like a certain adaptation because it strays from “accuracy”. Although I do think it’s nice to watch shows or movies of books and games that are probably 100% accurate, you have to understand that if this were true, nothing new is presented. The book, game, etc. will just be a script, and certain audiences will have the pleasure of enjoying it because they know that book or game like they do the back of their hand.
Lots of adaptations are trying their best to fit newer audiences, or come up with newer concepts for the source material, and we end up getting mad because it wasn’t “in the original”. I’m even guilty of this, I admit it.
If that show or movie is still bad likewise, maybe with different flaws other than presenting the original work differently, then that’s okay, the movie couldn’t be saved anyway. But please, always remember to keep an open mind. 🙂
I wasn’t going to rant, but I did anyway, and I hope you can either look upon my words and agree or tell me what you think is you disagree with.
I plan on keeping an open mind as I watch the new show, and I hope you all do too, whether it be for a movie of your favorite anime, or maybe for your favorite book.
That’s all for today, I’ll swing by again later. 😊
