Farmer In The Sky

Never worry about theory as long as the machinery does what it's supposed to do.

#A want a new series so this story gets animated again with better art

^

yes!

I do wonder how another adaptation would change things up! The existing adaptation managed to extend the short chapter really nicely, with the compromises it also took. Removing the bit with the robot killing the owls allowed Albert to prove his humanity in a different way, and you got the dramatic electrocution scene out of it…though apparently him killing the robo-Gilmore was considered too much, so they relegated the actual moment to an offscreen shooting.

As off-model as this episode gets, some of Albert’s faces really are just amusing. Or even just strangely dramatic and expressive (maybe a little too much for him).

The animation director for this episode was Toyoo Ashida, the same from the 1979 series. That’s why Albert looks bulkier than the rest of the series. There’s several different animation directos in the 2001 series, especially in the standalone episodes.

Did Ishinomori ever do a manga about Takeshi Hongo’s travels through Europe?

It never happened in the manga series. Ishinomori dealt with Hongo’s depart quite differently from the TV version. On the other hand, the Kamen Rider Black manga has Kotaro travelling around the world to fight Golgon.

I WAS RIGHT ALL ALONG

WE’RE GETTING NEW RE:

NEW RE:

NEW MOVIE? ANIME? I HAVE NO IDEA BUT WE’RE GETTING IT

ALSO 1979 ANIME RE-STREAM WHAT

That animation IS kind of telling…

Perhaps it’s a TV series taking place during their adventures, or a sequel/follow-up. It’s hard to say.

A translation will probably help unveil these mysteries.

Maybe it’s another pachinko game…

It’s hard to cap these as the timer ticks down, but…
Yeah, whatever announcement will be here soon

Could it be a new animated adaptation of Conclusion God’s War? Or it would be too good to be true?

I feel like we definitely need more Shotaro Ishinomori in english.
He’s been documented as the second most prolific figure in the manga industry, after Osamu Tezuka.

Like, all of The Voyage of Ryu. It’s his most beautiful comic, draftsmanship-wise

from what I understand we only have three things in english from mr. ishinomori: cyborg 009, the zelda comic…. and … some guide to economics.

all of which are out of print.
Yeah.

Kikaider, Inazuman, Skull Man and Kamen Rider were all released officially by Comixology. Ryu no Michi and Sabu to Ichi are almost finished by Happy Scans. Henshin Ninja Arashi and Kamen Rider Black are fully translated and they’re still working on some others.
