Examples of VNs that made good anime:
Clannad (Best anime ever. Period.)
Fate/Stay Night
Yosuga No Sora

It CAN be done. It HAS been done. But, yes, those are largely exceptions to the rule that an anime from a VN is a bad idea. Which is why I'm curious as to whether a KS anime would be good or not, and it would depend on what company made the anime.

Clannad is good, but not the best. It wouldn't even make it to my top 10. :P
Some people I know, like my cousin, have seen Clannad and afterwards they don't accept that other animes can be better. We watched another anime together, and I could see that he liked it a lot, but when I asked him, all he said was: "No! Clannad is so much better. :x "
Conclusion: Clannad is a brainwasher. :P

My top 10 would probably be (not in order):
• Kanon
• Toradora!
• Tsukuyomi Moon Phase
• Zero no Tsukaima
• Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora
• School Rumble
• Asura Cryin'
• Gungrave
• Negima
• Angel Beats
or Love Hina

I would love it, it could have 5 different series, one for each girl. Obviously it would be the good ending :P.

Not going to happen but there are worse things not going to happen :/.

Kanon? That's not how you spell Naruto...

<Ascension>: "I laughed, cried, vomited in my mouth a little, and even had time for marshmallows afterwards. Well played, Xanatos. Well played."
<KeiichiO>: "That's a beautiful response to chocolate."

Correct. ;)
I haven't watched Naruto, and I never will. It's part of the shonen-trio and thereby hate-material. :lol: I'm into shojo and seinen, with a few exceptions. ;)

*Raises hand*

I actually kinda like Naruto... Not as much as other manga, but it's far better than the other two of the shounen trio.

The only thing I like about Naruto is one of the songs; Keisei Gyakuten

Naruto actually has some of the best intro music of the 3

ive stopped following them though. its pretty clear that none of the authors really like working on it anymore and only do so due to cashcow franchise and contract.

ironically even though i stopped following it, Naruto got me into listening to japanese music. or at least more anime themes like the FLCL theme and .hack//sign theme.

Money ruin everything. Let the story lay on your mind.
And since everyone else is saying that, KS anime it's not gonna happen. :D
Science is interesting. If you don't agree, you can fuck off.

In the spirit of KS's origin story, we should make the KS anime ourselves, each of us taking on 15 seconds of animation and sound and then splicing them together.

It worked for the Star Wars fanbase.
Hanako's favorite joke is The Aristocrats, but she never tells it because Lilly finds it really offensive. Instead, she practices her delivery in front of a mirror when she's alone. It's the only time she never stammers.

Oh god no... :lol:
I love the interpretation of Pac-Man where he's a just a lowly worker retrieving golf balls left all over the course by the rich masters and the ghosts are all previous workers who got conked on the head and killed by incoming golf balls in the line of duty.

stupid idiot! finish it already! I DON'T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THE HACHIBI'S PAST OR ABOUT FUCKING TOBI, CAUSE EVERYBODY FUCKING KNOWS WHO TOBI IS !!!

....

anyway, School Rumble is one of my favs, it's pretty close to the manga storyline and well, if you want to finish it and find out more about the Harima-Eri relationship the you better read the "San Gakki" part of the anime that was never made

I have. I also bought volume 1-6, and I'm going to buy the rest too (Although they're very expensive and hard to find :? ). I've been waiting for the complete anime collection since January. It was supposed to be a birthday gift from my grandparents, but it was sold out here in Sweden*, and probably in the US too. They said it would be available in February, but it's already August and nothing has happened. :(

*There is only one store in Sweden that sells imported anime and manga. Some old stuff (Dragonball, One Piece and Love Hina) can be bought in local book stores, but that's only because it's been translated to Swedish by a guy who's recently lost his translator job due to the "manga case".
