What’s the best way to make a movie that makes all the monies? Just make a sequel, of course. But what if your studio doesn’t own the rights to anything currently popular because you weren’t busy buying the rights to every comic book out there? That’s when you dig through your catalog and make an illegitimate sequel to something people still talk about. If that fails, you at least have a tax write off and the knowledge that you did everything you possibly could.
Speaking of sequels, Tim’s manga is Donten ni Warau Gaiden. It’s a sequel or perhaps an epilogue to another manga. It’s set in the meiji era, which is basically Japan’s wild west for how it’s romanticized. Some people were supposed to fight a snake thing and they won, apparently. Also there are creepy ninjas who are or were crazy in that they forced their members to kill family to join the ranks. It’s intriguing enough that Tim gives it a Borders and may read the original.
Weltall then reviews Let’s Lagoon. In in, the main character awakens on a deserted island. He was apparently in a naval accident but can’t remember what happened. He’s joined by a girl and eventually an older man who is a teacher of hers. When the main guy ends up being pulled away by a riptide into the ocean, he awakens and finds he was only gone for fifteen minutes. There’s time screwiness somehow involved with the ocean and people trying to drown themselves to end up on the island that time forgot. It gets a Read It Now.
This week on Anime Pulse Joseph talks about Fire Emblem Heroes, and seems to be suffering from the effects of a glass of riesling that hit him harder than he was expecting. Andrew is more entertaining anyways, but his IRL is as short as ever with the community segment taking over. The industry also saw fit to give Joseph nothing to talk about, though Andrew had news about Japanese manhole covers and mascots for subways in Japan. This is also the third hybrid show where Joseph reviews a snack anime without snacks, and Andrew previews a disturbing anime about slavery and a third season of FMP.

It’s easy to forget now, in the age where decent and just below average video game adaptations are the norm, what the early two thousands were like. If you saw an advertisement for a video game movie back then, chances were it was a fecal pate served on a cat turd cracker by none other than Uwe Boll.
