Oh look, it’s Hidamari Bund!
So my expectations (of it being “original”) have come true! Shinbo(kastel) has pretty much rewrote the setup of DitVB and introducing the story in a radically different way.
For instance, Akira has amnesia and doesn’t remember the past 16 years of his life thanks to some accident off-screen. Right.
And the enemies have pretty much become “monster of the week” types. We actually went from a chameleon last week to a spider this week. I will expecting be something with long appendages next week or soon enough just so SHAFT can draw some tentacle porn.
They did keep the “lotion” scene, but it’s pretty LOL here. Tell me, what would justify Mina not looking stupid by asking Akira to slather lotion on her while both are being chased by an AH-64 Apache in the city. Reeks of forced fanservice. Also more like, WHY DID YOU MAKE MINA LOOK LIKE SHE’S STALKING AKIRA.
Man, I hate it when people try adapt by doing original shit and mess it up even more badly than the original work is. Of course, I am biased and all since I read the manga so I guess people fresh to this would find it more interesting since it has loli nipples and shit.
