Yay or nay?
I would personally love to see this happen. Although there seem to be people who also say that they feel it would "be an embarassment". And that since "The target audience is the Japanese population" they would be "frustrated at watching a likely incorrect portrayal of a western culture".
And someone recently threw this rant at me;
"Harry Potter would make a terrible animated series. Because Anime is a format designed for people who struggle with the confronting form of other humans. Its a way for adults to inadvertantly recieve the same communicational content or traditional story telling they would get had they any real friends or social interactions. Harry Potter being firstly a philosophical novel about love, death and the complicated relationship between them would not do well in such a format. As its target audience is too dim to actually achieve a proper human to human relationship, the content of the show would be largely lost on them. And the idea of displaying the complications of a persons emotions via cartoon media is moot."
What do you guys think?
