      Am I the only one who thought the footage shown didn't look so bad? Most people are all "OH NOES, ITS RUINED!"

        The new Orphen anime looks to be a prequel. As disappointing as I won't be seeing Majic and Cleo (or at least not a lot of them), I am definitely intrigued to see more of Orphen's past.

            People are really overdramatic about that sort of thing.

              But lets be honest here. One Punch Man is famous for it's great animation over all. And something so average animated by JC Staff, does justify a callback from the fandom. I can think of a quite recent sequel that was completely ruined because of cheaper animation (along with crappier writing too) Wake Up Girls wich was iconic for it's choreographies among the Idol fandom and with Wake-Up W the dancing sequences just ceased to exist, along with a very derpy and cheap looking artstyle.

              If we were talking about videogame sequels with worse graphics and dumber gameplay, everyone and their grandma would be in the right to complain about it (like Dragon Age & Dragon Age II)

                It doesn't justify the overdramatic "ruined forever" stuff I have seen from fandoms a million times.

                  I think it's quite justified. I actually haven't finished OPM, but I didn't see it's brilliance in it's writing as a lot of people claimed and the only thing that kept me watching at least 5 episodes was it's amazing animation. With the great animation taken off the table, it's quite justified to feel that it was ruined.

                  The airing begins within less than 2 weeks, so we'll see if this outrage was justified or not.

                    For me, it was all about the gag of Saitama being so strong that nothing is a real challenge so he's bored. As long as that schtick is intact and the animation quality is at least passable enough to not be distracting, I don't think it's ruined or even significantly changed. I think saying, "ruined forever" is overdramatic like it has been every other time I have seen people say this and I have seen people say this many times.

                    I was going to post the ruined forever page from TV Tropes for examples but it was taken down because it was of full of flame-bait and nonsense.

                      Surprised to see that Netflix just added the OVA episodes (13 - 15) for Hi Score Girl.

                      Also a 2nd season has been announced premiering in October for Japan

                      Of course if Netflix follows the usual pattern it won't be available here until 2020

                        Others like me liked it for the points I mentioned earlier and we have the right to express our frustration.

                          It looked all right to me? *shrugs* I mean, I've seen worse animation....

                          I need to rewatch season one 'cause I forgot who half these people are other than Saitama and Genos lol. ETA: And the one whom Saitama punched in the balls

                            I wouldnít say it looked bad, but I wasnít particukarly impressed either. I donít intend to sign up for Hulu just so I can watch it. If it shows up on Toonami later, Iíll prbably watch it.

                                Who said you don't? No one. No one said anything even vaguely like that. Portraying disagreement as saying that you don't have the right to "express your frustration" is rather overdramatic.
