Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

Flattery

… or so they say. Amusing. My blog never looked this Web-2.0-ish though! In deference to mikoto/fangzhao’s ballsy-ness, I guess I will follow suit, XD.

In other words, I am finally up on ABT’s. I was having too much fun with the ANB vs Tenchi fan drama to notice until Nova told me.

Makes me wonder, if I posted that Fate/Stay Night was the pinnacle of anime production and the best TYPE-MOON adaptation ever, will I get my own personal stalker for the next six years? Of course, this is hypothetical because there is no Fate/Stay Night anime, right guys?

    There was an F/SN anime? I thought that there was only the UBW movie..
    I also never heard of a Tsukihime anime adaptation before..
    Maybe these works will get an anime adaptation in the future though..

    What Tsukihime anime?

    There is no Tsukihime anime. That other show had similar-sounding characters and themes, but it ain’t no Tsukihime anime. Itou Shizuka as Akiha notwithstanding.

    Also, what animated adaptation? There’s only one real adaptation, and that’s the Kara no Kyoukai movies.

    I am a bit perplexed at the anime fans’ knowledge of the existence of Tsukihime and FS/N having animes. I never remembered anything of that extent.

    well I know that fate/stay night was animated before and there is even a movie called fate/stay night: unlimited blade works out there that im waiting for it to be subbed.

    no idea about what tsukihime is but I heard that there was and they’re planing to make another adaptation.

    there was a tsukihime anime adaption, and playing the VN. it follows it decently? considering the path i had taken in the VN that is.
    i have yet to watch F/SN, though it is on my list. However, i still am loving Kara no Kyoukai, and eagerly looking forwrd to further TYPE-MOON adaptions ^^

    keep it up at the tourney Kurogane xD not that you can do much about it right now xD

    As Hisui said, there is no Tsukihime anime, but there is an Unlimited Blade Works movie. Kara no Kyoukai is the best TYPE MOON anime.

    Omedetto !! Omedetto !! Omedetto !! Kurogane Senpai – a certain gag pirated by Gintama from Evangelion.

    I miss my beloved Saber, the 2006 Tsundere 2nd runner up Rin, and a certain sex scene from a certain anime series starring a Vampire Girl later mesh together turned into Kare no Kyoukai movies.

    Vampire Girl? Who?

    @ithekro:

    Umineko had an anime? NO WAI

    …Though, it would be awesome if it ever did get a good anime adaption. Like Tsukihime and Fate:Stay/Night, all the good material never gets a decent adaption.

    THERE IS NO TSUKIHIME ANIME. STOP SAYING BULLSHIT.

  22. Haesslich Said,

    May 24, 2010 @ 5:18 am

    There is a rather good Tsukihime manga though. Nothing like that Fate/Stay Night craptastic one. If only they’d do an anime based on that source material… ;)

    The Tsukihime anime only exists to the extent I can screencap pictures of maids from it.

    @Di Gi Kazune: If something called Unlimited Maid Works existed, I would need a new pair of pants.

    basically fate/stay night is a spinoff from tsukihime:

    Spinoffs

    Type-Moon has released two notable spinoff tiles based on Tsukihime series, Melty Blood and Fate/Stay Night. Melty Blood, developed alongside French-Bread is a dojin fighting game using characters from the Tsukihime games as well as new characters specific for the games. Multiple updated versions of the game have been created as well as a sequel. Fate/Stay Night is an eroge visual novel based on an alternate universe to the Tsukihime games centering on Shirō Emiya former mechanic who becomes a powerful sorceror who battles forces of evil to protect mankind. The game has developed a successful media franchise including ports, sequels, anime and manga adaptations.

    I’m guessing those guys who thinked they watched an anime adaptation of it probably saw it first then found the original or heaven forbid don’t know where they came from.

    Some people really don’t get the joke, I suppose.

    I’m now trying to imagine the entire F/SN crew, as drawn by Nagai Go, just to be off topic…..

  29. Haesslich Said,

    Fate/Stay Night isn’t a spin-off of Tsukihime, any more than Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a spinoff of Star Wars Episode 2 – they take place in what is effectively the same universe (the Nasuverse) and use a lot of the same type of mythology/terms. Melty Blood IS, however, a spinoff of Fate/Stay Night, using the same characters in a completely different setting and genre (a fighting game like Mugen). Ditto Fate/Unlimited Codes, and so forth.

    Now look at the link under Adaptation Decay to understand the joke which apparently flew over the heads of half of you.

  30. Haesslich Said,

    May 24, 2010 @ 11:31 am

    To ruin the joke even further and club data into the heads of those who need it…

    * Adaptation Decay – (anime) Thorough Road Cone tossing, and the All There In The Manual factor. Kohaku and Hisui lose all personality, backstory, and importance. Powers are nerfed, characters act out of character, badass fights are completely cut off, Nanaya is missing, and so on, leading some to claim that there is no Tsukihime anime.
    * Adaptation Distillation – The manga eats Arc’s route and shits out awesome. It also incorporates elements from other routes and increases the threat level of the Big Bad, which is a very welcome change.

    - note that the manga is referenced in the first link above. It makes Shiki awesome. The anime… doesn’t. It also sucks the life out of every goddamned character, which the manga doesn’t.

    So many people Not Getting The Joke® in this post here. But perhaps Not Getting The Joke® is The Joke®.

    I should start campaigning with the slogan, “A vote for me is a vote for the non-existence of the Tsukihime anime!”

    May 24, 2010 @ 12:39 pm

    TheBigN: It’s more a joke than anything else. Sorta like most TYPE-MOON franchises thus far, minus the funny. Well, except that Tsukihime manga which is all sorts of awesome.

    “A vote for me is a vote for the non-existence of the Tsukihime anime!”

    That is fricking evil. It’s like telling me to vote for you EVEN THOUGH I AM NOT GONNA VOTE FOR YOU. Arghh. and to those who still don’t get the joke, too bad. The truth is still that there’s no Tsukihime anime.

    I do get the joke, I just don’t find it funny at all. Especially since it’s been so beaten to death by now.

  38. TheBigN Said,

    May 24, 2010 @ 8:50 pm

    Haesslich: Dude, I know the joke and have been all over the block with it. I get it, but I’m not a fan of it, especially because I actually like the Tsukihime anime. :D

    And blog title’s back to normal. 24 hours is long enough for me.

    Also I am surprised how the entirety of the thread is now about Tsukihime anime’s existence. That definitely wasn’t the way I was expecting this thread to go about. Too bad for the actual fans of the anime, eh?

  40. Haesslich Said,

    May 25, 2010 @ 2:06 am

    TheBigN: no accounting for (lack of) taste, I guess. You ought to find the manga and give that a try; although I’m betting you liked the XEBEC Negima adaptation as well for being well paced, and for the original twists on a harem series… ;)

  41. Grimmer Said,

  42. TheBigN Said,

    Haesslich: I read the manga and love it too. I like the manga more than the anime, sure, but comparison isn’t necessary, dude. :P

  43. Haesslich Said,

    May 25, 2010 @ 9:53 am

    TheBigN: The manga’s an example of an adaptation done RIGHT. The anime and manga of Disgaea are examples of adaptations done horribly wrong. And everyone who claims the Tsukihime adaptation was good is only helping shore up the careers of the idiots who make poor adaptations instead of good ones.
