Well, what you think? doomed to failure or a great success?

....it can't be as bad as the Final Fantasy anime...so I guess it'll be better than having a buffalo take a diarrhea dump in your ear.

It'll be a failure but I'll watch. I'm all about Dragon Age, the games, the books and apparently now the anime.

You are freaking kidding me, right?  You are?

OMG, it looks like you're serious.  I may keep an ear open to see if it sucks or not.

I heard about this awhile ago.  I'll check it out when it comes out, but I'm not expecting too much from it.  I'm sure a lot of folks here on GB will hate it just because it's anime.  My greater concern would be with the storyline since, for me at least, DA:O is all about your story.  Of course, even that notion seems to have been shelved with DA:O2.  If Bioware was going to make an anime, I kind of wished it had been a Mass Effect one.  At least that already has an established canon with its core characters.

As long as they make it like that Batmanime collection they had a while back it'll be awesome.

I'll watch it, and hope it won't suck, but I know it won't be what I want it to be.

I hope it's good, I know it won't be.
 
@FLStyle: Are the novels worth getting?

@hematurge: They're a lot better than what this anime is going to be like. The Stolen Throne tells the tale of Prince Maric and a young Loghain fighting the Orlaisians and its sequel, The Calling, has ties to Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening and a young Duncan. Good stuff.

I don't have particularly high hopes for it, but we'll see how it goes. If it even gets finished and not get stuck in development hell or something.

@FLStyle:  Cool, I'll pick em up some time.

No, i think most of them agree that that thing was horribly bad. 
 
And don't get me started on the Halo one... 
 
They should really learn that anime and video gamers don't mix too well. At least, not western ones.

Why the fuck?

Why are people surprised?  And not that this has been known for a while, more along the lines that EA has been pushing out animated features with their games for a while now, Dead Space, and Dante's Inferno to be the two big examples.

This can't end well. 
 
At least we're not forced to watch it.

#22 Posted by Kiro (286 posts) -

Maybe it'll be good. I'm not holding my breath, but it might not suck. If it does, we can pretend it never existed like we do with most movie/anime adaptations of cool shit we like.

#29 Posted by RLLink (369 posts) -

Just saying this now:
Haters gonna hate.
 
That said I'm not watching this nor am I playing the game.
