So then how come Funimation is known as the “king of ecchi” then?
Is it? Well then it’s a good thing no one is saying that. I’m not sure who is talking about good dramas, maybe I missed it earlier in the thread? Anyhow, to clear up any confusion that may be here, I’m talking about mature science fiction shows, shows with more thought-provoking themes and a tendency towards “hard” science fiction. Funimation’s rescued Moonlight Mile is an example of such a show.
I never made the claim about Funi. It’s just something I’ve read on other forums. They’ve only been releasing one or two new series every month for a while now and they’ve almost entirely consisted of things like Strike Witches, HLP, and Cat Planet Cuties.
As for Moonlight Mile, it was a sales flop. Funi allowed it to fall out of print and the license has likely expired or reverted. Even if they have it, what good does it do if they don’t use it?
Just what are you trying to accomplish here? You’re engaging in logical fallacies, trying to argue points that no one contests (and not the points that have been made), and are dangerously close contradicting yourself.
Are you trying to be Graham Aker?
I have no idea what you’re even asking. You said Funi had all the “mature sci-fi” series. I disputed that, because I didn’t see how it was true. Then you could only list one that is now out of print and didn’t even have the second season picked up. That’s gotta be pretty bad when Funimation gives almost everything at least four or five re-releases. Though they have to, or else they would hardly have any material to distribute each month. I also pointed out that Funi is just as bad as Sentai at picking up silly, fan-service shows (as is just about everyone in R1 really), and that some fans are basically accusing them of going overboard on fan service.
I never said I agreed with the title that some fans have given to Funi. But you still haven’t provided any proof that Funi has all the “mature sci-fi series.”[/quote]
You haven’t provided any proof that they do not, and since you took it upon yourself to start an argument with me, as Chris Ayres is wont to say, “the onus is on you”. Note that I said “shows”, and while that isn’t significantly different than “series”, it does exclude movies like Mardock Scramble. Broken Blade is much more of a fantasy than a science fiction show.
In talking about the release history of Moonlight Mile you’re still creating a straw man (logical fallacy) as I never made any claims about mature science-fiction selling well. That’s a topic you invented for some nefarious purpose; I merely said that Funimation had almost all of such shows, something you haven’t successfully refuted.
I realize that it is quoted above, but I’m going to relist it here because it is necessary to show how absurd your statement is:
You never disputed this, nor technically did you ever dispute much of anything with me. All you did was invent arguments not even tangentially related to what you have made mine and then tried to shoot them down. An example being where you started rambling about dramas, something that I didn’t mention.
I never said I agreed with the title that some fans have given to Funi.[/quote]
Perhaps not, but you’ve gone out of your way to justify that “title” in no fewer than 2 posts. Let’s stop pointlessly beating around the bush here: Do you agree with this “title” given to Funimation?
I hate to put on airs of self-importance, but I can’t help but get the feeling that you’re trying to “shoot me down” here out of some yet-unrevealed spite. You did start a poorly constructed argument with me for no given reason, after all. In Gundam 00, which I’m going to assume that you haven’t seen, Graham Aker goes insane and justifies his own irrational crusade against the organization known as Celestial Being.
I’m not sure why you’re trying to persecute a fellow Sentai fan (there are so few of us, getting back to the recent Sentai panel sales figures) but if you really want to keep it up I think I can oblige, though if these past few posts are the pinnacle of your argumentative technique I think it’d be best if you just “threw in the towel” right now
Speaking of getting back on topic, what about Space Brothers? If Crunchyroll simulcasts a show then the odds of said show being licensed by Sentai increase. It’s a nice foil to Sentai’s existing Bodacious Space Pirates. I’d be one of the 3,000 buying it if they were to license it.
