Mishaps of 2007
In lieu of the recent controversies of School Days and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai episodes being pulled from the air, a list of unfortunate mishaps in the anime industry in 2007 has been drawn up in comparison:
Manabi Straight!: The grafitti of the school in the opening scene drew complains which was later changed in mid-production.
Tenpou Ibun Ayakashi Ayashi: It was originally assumed to be aired for a year but the production team cut it in half.
Code Geass: Delays in productions and the insertion of recap episode resulted in the 3 months postponement of the broadcast of the final two episodes.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: A director resigns from the board due to comments about fans on 2ch that he posted on his Mixi diary. The sexy stuffs that was supposed to be aired was replaced by a recap scene instead.
Darker Than Black: The production manager ran away with the manuscript.
Ray’s take: “The production manager ran away with the manuscript.” …Yeah…WHY THE HELL DID THAT HAPPEN?! It’s not like he’s a contractor or something! First a psycho bitch teenage daughter, and now a possibly mentally snapped manager…Wow, I wonder if someone will actually make an anime out of this?
