Luckily the style did help me understand some stands I didn't really get when I read it. Hopefully it'll also make the piss dragon make sense

I might get heat for this but Jojo's part 4 and 5 really suffered heavily from this. They were still decent enough because the source material was good, but they could have been excellent if they weren't such direct adaptations.

I don't disagree with you, there's certainly stuff that between a manga, anime and live action by the time I get to the third one it's like, I wish they'd not make everything such a same straight adaptation. On the other hand if things stray too far, then people might feel like they'd rather something more straightforward.

Yeah, it's an unenviable position. I may have an idea of what changes would have benefited the series, but making those changes would invite a whole discussion that the studio would probably rather not have.

I agree with you here. I think 5 was better than 4 for making certain parts pop but 4 was kind of a lifeless drag to me.

I cannot see an adaptation of Alternative going well, even if they start it out with four episodes of Extra/Unlimited. There's just no way I can figure out how they can do it well.

I have only the barest knowledge of Muv-Luv, and nothing I've learned has ever made me want to know more.

They were already moving towards softening the Muv-Luv designs previously, at least to the point of using them for some relatively minor side material.

Too much of the Muv in the world today, not enough of the Luv IMHO.

The problem with MuvLuv is that all the side materials jumped headfirst into just out and out fascism.

That's just a problem with military fiction in general

was there a time when speedwagon didn't get trolled

Especially military fiction where the enemy faction is a big spooky monolithic alien/monster invasion, since "we all have to unite under our powerful government and military in order to have the strength to resist the other attempting to destroy us" is basically the meat and potatoes of fascist mythology.
