KITE Live Action Film


DeathscytheX

I've never seen Kite, two of them are on netflix now I assume because of this project... I wont watch them however, because the customer reviews claim they are heavily edited.

I've seen the original Kite and Kite Liberator (new main character that takes place after first OVA). Honestly you're not really missing much by not seeing them. Kinda meh in my opinion. The version of the Kite OVA on Netflix is the completely edited version that cuts out all sex scenes and most of the extremely violent acts that take place in the show (there are three versions of the original OVA). The only real thing you miss, story wise, is her motivation for doing what she does at the end of the OVA which honestly really isn't much. Your choice if you want to actually watch it but I'd say don't waste your time.

 

Outside of the curiosity thats being piqued by how true they'll stay to the source material I have no real need or want to watch the live-action adaptation when it comes out (plus it's an American adaptation, anything and everything that's deemed bad for American morals will be but out). Plus after watching the first two minutes of the trailer it looks rather horrible.

Kite was an interesting anime for me when I first watched it, mostly because of the amount of violence in it. Considering how young I was when I first watched it, it really made me realize how drastically different anime can be compared to US cartoons. Aside from that, I wasn't a big fan of the anime. I watched it maybe twice? This movie seems like it will fail to me. Like Eppy said, its a mostly action movie.. but the trailer showed more talk than action.. ehh. Maybe if they had whatsherface that plays Hit Girl in it, then I'd probably watch it.

 

I'm surprised Kite is being made into a movie.. if hollywood wants to make old animes into movies, I hope they make Vampire Hunter D next. :P

 

Dragonball Evolution was a horrible movie. I watched it just so I could see how bad it was made.. oh man.. it ranks up there with Super Mario Brothers in terms of how off mark all the characters and plot was compared to the source material.

Well Neon Genesis Evangelion is still floating out there, and Akira is being made. NGE won't come close to the source material if they tried to make it.

 

I don't know what you're talking about. Super Mario Bros is a cinematic masterpiece. XD XD XD

      I just discovered Hyouka and I'm hooked. The animation is stunningly beautiful... not Evergarden tier, but extremely good compared with most. The Chemistry between Hotaro and Chitanda is outstanding. Chitanda is super adorable and Hotaro's lack of enthusiasm for anything just makes their interactions great. Plus the "mysteries" are intriguing as they go about solving them.

      I've been a bit inactive lately. Lots of things going on with my personal life and work. There's a new big update for the forum software we use and it's finally been released which is also another reason why I didn't update the themes yet. Hopefully if I have the time this weekend I'll get that all updated.

      Anthem isn't perfect. It probably should have been delayed another 6-8 months, but its a hell of a lot of fun. I just find it funny how Destiny can rack up big review scores with the similar issues and significantly less content. The popular thing to do right now is crap on EA, and its justified... but it'll be a shame if this game gets the plugged pulled on it early. There is a lot of potential here to fill the gap until the next gen consoles come. Arekkz has the most realistic take on the game, the rest of the YT community is just spitting out talking points which is kinda sad too see since they're suppose to be the alternate to big game sites.

      Last Spring was an anime season of epicness. This season is of charm and adorableness. Meiji Tokyo Renka, My Roommate is a Cat, The Quintessential Quintuplets, and ENDRO have all captured my heart and they're not even my favorites this season. I'll def have my work cut out for me doing a full review at the end.

      I've been sick as hell for the last 5 days now. Damn sinus infection has wrecked me. At least I got some time in on God of War. Damn that game is amazing.
