Juuni Taisen Episode 2

APlus

A weeb, an otaku, or something else entirely? No, no. It's probably one of the first two. Avid watcher and, now, writer of all things anime, I'm pleased to make your acquaintance. Though our waifus and husbandos may differ in the future, I'm hopeful we can remain friends or, at the very least, not become bitter enemies. It's a pleasure.

    Nisioisin will be writing a sequel novel to Juuni Taisen, titled Juuni Taisen vs Juuni Taisen. Out this December.

    Apparently the novel had an audience viewpoint character, a reporter covering the Zodiac War live from a safe distance. Said character seems to have been phased out so viewers can observe the characters directly.

      You’re a bundle of useful information and I love it. Are you saying this series airing now is supposed to have a reporter?

      If so, that’s interesting that they phased it out. The difference to me is between what could be just a generic action flick vs a unique play on POV. Playing with perspectives would no doubt be challenging, so I can’t blame them for simplifying, but if they had succeeded I think this show’s complexity and watchability, for lack of a better word, would be far higher.

      That would also makes me just a bit sad. Maybe taking out the reporter took away what would have made it a Nisio anime.

      … whoops. Thanks for the correction. Writing while I was watching real-time clearly took up too much of my brain power.
