Yotsuba to! the Animation, who's with me?? (52)

1 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-06-09 05:23 ID:mJXs9qlw This thread was merged from the former /anime/ board. You can view the archive here.

It's gotta happen sooner or later, maybe they're waiting for the series to end first? How many more volumes is that guy supposed to churn out before they start drawing storyboards?

Anyway, it's a good idea; I'd pirate it... hell, I might even buy it.

Azumanga anime was IMO much better than manga. Not sure if it's possible to make Yotsuba better though.

3 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-06-10 10:58 ID:V478iebe

Who would voice Yotsuba best, though?

I was more of wondering about the Japanese voice actresses.

7 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-06-11 17:07 ID:aaFMoluc

>>6 the japanese cannot va

8 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-06-11 20:09 ID:bFi/yEfM

sigh Fine, the Japanese 声優 then.

9 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-06-12 04:06 ID:BblvnUYQ

Yuki Matsuoka (Osaka) could do it.


Her voice wouldn't be obnoxious like Tomoko Kaneda's (Chiyo).

I'd recommend a SPITZ song for the OP, if the band's work hadn't been whored out so much already.

13 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-06-13 16:30 ID:NdfR56bW

to(prt,conj) (1) if; when; (2) and; (3) with; (4) particle used for quoting (with speech, thoughts, etc.); (5) (abbr) promoted pawn (shogi); (P)

16 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-06-13 23:04 ID:NdfR56bW

didn't mean that, i meant:

What does "Exclamation mark (!)" mean in japanese?
wouldn't it mean " Yotsuba and Exclamation mark" ??????

17 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-06-13 23:42 ID:nHUDnc8j

If "to" is standing on its own after a noun, it can also mean "(together) with [noun]". So "Yotsubato!" means "With Yotsuba!"

18 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-06-14 02:44 ID:BblvnUYQ

It's because almost all the chapters are called "Yotsuba & x !"

So Azuma Kiyohiko is just being a little clever and calling the whole series "Yotsuba &!" ...makes sense. It's more logical than "Azumanga Daioh" I guess.

Now with 20% more Yotsuba!

21 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-06-19 05:56 ID:UfVgimth

Don't they already have the music for it too?

What are they waiting for? Is it not selling enough, I should think it would carry on the heels of Azumanga-D happily.

22 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-06-19 11:40 ID:4fb6roOb

yea, you can get the soundtrack here >>www.4chan.biz

23 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-06-21 22:25 ID:G0lEAs5u

that music isn't official anime soundtrack, just music inspired by Yotsubato!.

24 Name: Tenguri : 2007-06-22 04:03 ID:f+OBoHoC

yotsubato&! is gettin an anime? they only released 3 volumes from ADV here and i was kinda mad they didnt release more..

25 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-06-22 19:48 ID:gnjFZHvb


It hasn't yet, at any rate. But soon... It must..... There is no escape..........

Don't make me destroy you....

4's out in a few weeks and 5 is out October.

27 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-06-23 04:55 ID:qMRfU9Eh

Even so, a lot of it is perfectly suited for BGM. The last track of the first album would be ideal for an ED animation.

Azumanga Daioh was named in a very peculiar way. The creator, Kiyohiko Azuma, wanted to incorporate her name into the title. She found that Azuma and manga could be fit together easily, so that is how "Azumanga" came to be. The second word, "Daioh" was chosen because it ran in Dengenki Daioh.

"She"? "Her"?

Kiyohiko Azuma (東清彦 or あずまきよひこ Azuma Kiyohiko?), born May 27, 1968 in Takasago, Hyōgo Prefecture, is a Japanese manga author and illustrator. In his manga, he writes under the hiragana form of his name. He used to use the pen name Joji Jonokuchi (序ノ口譲二 Jonokuchi Jōji?) in his hentai manga, though he appears to have ceased drawing adult works in the 1990s, while he was still relatively obscure. He graduated from Hyōgo Prefectural Kakogawa East High School and Kobe Design University.

His most well-known work is Azumanga Daioh. His current series is Yotsuba&!, which is serialized monthly in Dengeki Daioh magazine. Other works of his include dōjinshi involving characters from Neon Genesis Evangelion, Sailor Moon, Tenchi Muyo!, and Battle Athletes, among othe

I think it'd be better off just as a manga. It seems that it's kind of comedy is more for manga culture. I also didn't think that the anime of Azumanga Daioh was as satisfying as the manga. This may just be me though...

37 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-08-30 04:52 ID:1rvi+L2E


I think the adaptation of AD was very faithful to its original Yonkoma, so maybe when you saw the adaptation, it didn't have the same impact that it had on me, since I saw it before reading the yonkoma. However, once I picked up a volume of that manga in the bookstore, I had the same reaction you had towards the anime.

Although they did have to cut some very good scenes for the television adaptation. Chose your evil, I say.

38 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2014-04-19 10:32 ID:Heaven

Seven years later and still no sign that a Yotsuba anime is in the works.

39 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2021-03-02 01:43 ID:xIxFvZpQ


>Yotsuba anime

I rather a Yotsuba audio drama

41 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2021-03-09 13:28 ID:VTOK0xLa

Yeah, I want anime of Yotsuba too. The manga is so comfy and cute.

42 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2021-03-10 14:17 ID:5NFG0wLs

Too bad it will never happen the author doesn't want a anime version of it.

43 Name: Anonymous Otaku : 2021-03-21 13:50 ID:ajDRDVOA

well, maybe some day he changes his mind.

44 Name: Anonymous Otaku : 2021-03-29 04:34 ID:Yka8+1MP


I highly doubt that.

45 Name: Anonymous Otaku : 2021-06-08 23:21 ID:UX930trV

Considering that tomorrow (2021-06-09) will mark the official fourteen-year anniversary of this thread's creation, I tend to agree...

RIP our collective hopes and dreams of an official Yotsubato! anime or OAV project, I guess.

It can't be made right now. It doesn't follow any of the current trends in anime. You can't count on name recognition in anime because most new fans don't care about old stuff, they just want to consume seasonals.

Sadly can't even deny.

Oh, by the way, "anime fans" is like 1% of anime watchers, practically a vocal minority. Their opinion doesn't matter that much. Depends on anime though, some pander to them so heavily that they are at least half of all the viewers.

51 Name: Anonymous Otaku : 2021-06-15 23:23 ID:/ihxuJn0

How doesn't their opinion matter if they're pretty much the only ones keeping the industry afloat with a stable stream of money? As far as I remember anime studios make most of their profits from selling merchandise, holding special events etc., and nobody but these "anime fans" is willing to pay for that.

52 Name: Anonymous Otaku : 2021-06-16 16:56 ID:Heaven

Wow, tv adverts don't count anymore? Amazing, I can see why those are so amazing, they don't have to give a shit about what advertisers think.

Late night anime depends on dvd/blueray sales, but other probably not as much. Not sure if such anime exists even still.
