Anime Podcast S2 E5 : Disgruntled Fanboys and the Issue of Making Changes to Source Material

First, we’ll take a look at Yahoo’s numbers on the “most searched” anime during the first half of the year.

Then, it’s Attack on Titan, Overlord III, and Steins;Gate 0 in the Week In Review.

Lastly, should a studio strive to remain as faithful as possible to the source material it’s adapting, or should they have the freedom to make changes? If so, what kind?

All that and more on this week’s episode of The Weeabros Anime Podcast.

  1. I don’t mind studios tweaking some minor things, but in general I prefer for them to stay faithful to the source material. There are many examples of anime original content that turned out weaker than the original manga/light novel.

    1. I can see it being a tough call. Fans are fans of a certain series because they like it the way it is. You may lose them if you change too much, but, in the case of something like Berserk, maybe it is more advantageous to dial down/change some of that source material so as to make it more appealing to casual anime fans.
