    Wow, this is quite a shock. It worked well for Star Fox, and Nintendo's been expressing interest in more animated content, so it was inevitable. Launches Auguest 12th, so it's clearly for marketing Splatoon 2, and has most likely been in production for quite a while to launching so quickly. I'm really looking forward to it. Shorts based off the characters from the comics AND hand-drawn animation? Sounds good to me!

    *Splutters out his drink*

    How did I miss this...?! I usualy have my eyes peeled and ear to the ground as far as anything CoroCoro Splatoon related goes...!

    Well pardon me now while the fanboy in me internally yells....


    On a side note...I wonder if these will be actual long eps, or more short, condensed things? I guess we will see. Nevermind, you clearly said shorts. Oops.

    I was really sick, so I couldn't comment on the recent news. Thankfully today I can give a better brief upon this since it is exciting news, and not just a misread.

    This was retweeted by him of course:



    Could've sworn though the other day he was referencing some projects and four animation shorts towards this all individually within the tweet itself. So if I am correct, we will be getting four shorts relating to the コロコロSplatoon. If it succeeds, in my theory, they will up the production to make a full fledged series. ((Which will lengthen the stories, yes!))

    Now we need plushies of the S4 and others, and I'd be happy, okay?

    I swear I seen that tweet of his too...but I cant find it for the life of me.

    Four sounds good and solid, if its true. But I wonder the length of them, still. I also wonder if they will be fully original content or heavily based upon particular chapters...I'm hoping for fresh original content myself honestly.

    But there's some shirts at least...and that 3DS/Switch game case...

    Were getting ahead of ourselves yet. Too soon?

    Five minutes is usually a length of a short, which you know already. If they greenlight a series, they may do the same formula and have two stories formulate in a half hour. I have no idea if the comic artist is going to have any sort of control over his creation, most likely won't since a lot of manga artist just come up and give tips. (Zatch Bell is a good example of how much they butchered his work despite the advice given, and the Megaman NT Warriors series avoided everything that made the manga good as well.)

    So hopefully they don't run into that, but won't likely be if they don't decide to stir too far away from his humor or art style. I know it is going to probably have rigid animation quality since it is an anime, and it is a style that Japanese normally pitch in, so that isn't so bad, just how well it is put off.

    (If you don't get what I mean by rigid, it just means in animation terms where the animation has a few frames per second. In Japan, especially back in the 80s, and 50s such as Transformers and so forth, the example of rigid animation could be seen throughout the show. It just became a style later that everyone became so familiar with. So don't mistaken that I am bashing, I am just being technical with my knowledge here. I hate explaining that, but I know some people attempt to take things personally when I describe things.)

    Also I hope it has Japanese subtitles, that would be great for translating.

    (And ignore the tweet I posted, I can't seem to find the actual post where he is speaking about the anime in August. Maybe removed it because he unveiled too much information.)

    Oooh, I seriously can't wait to watch this! ♥
    It's gonna be so interesting to watch. I'll be expecting it to sorta play how Hetalia played out with short episodes and nothing really correlating much. Or for it to just follow the story in the comic! Either way, I can't wait to see Bobble-chan, Glasses-kun, RIDER and Goggle-kun! Don't think I won't be excited for the other characters either. I wonder how Mask is gonna sound like. I instantly think of a Roadhog voice, honestly.

    Either way, I'm so glad they'll be able to make this happen. I can only feel grateful for this.

    Alright, so I hate to bump a thread but...



    This looks less like it will be full animation, and more as if it will be animated stills of frames from the manga, per say.

    I say this because the image shown as part of a video in the picture here is literally straight from a page of the manga:

    LIBNVZ0.png

    So it looks to be just a colored voiced over version of pre-existing chapters of the manga. That's about it. Makes me think of the way this recent fan dub animated panels from the manga and put their own voice over in.



    So yeah, not much else to say. It's coming out soon though...so let's keep an eye out.

    They look to be based on existing chapters of the manga. What was shown here was from the first chapter (Riders Yellow Green Team VS Blue Team). I'm not sure the length though...that much hasn't been revealed yet. But I wouldn't expect it to be too long. Literally short episodic things- so maybe a few minutes long each.

    However, it seems it may be region locked on Youtube...thankfully though someone has uploaded it to an alternative source, provided in a link here:


    Enjoy!

    Ah so you were right about it being like uhh... not animation. Just you know, the manga but with color and voice acting with sound effects and music. It does have a bit of animation. I'll have to watch this a few times to make my opinion.

    It's as I suspected it was going to be, yeah. I would have preferred full blown animation over Manga frames with motion tweening (ugh....) but I'll take what we have.

    The Colors are fantastic regardless, and the voice acting is great- Rider sounds just as I thought he would in my head so I cant help but be amused. The rest of the gang sounds great also.

    The next episode is going to be "Army", so we better prepare the Curry...

    Yea I would have also preferred animation over the Manga frames. I also agree with the colors being amazing, the voice acting is pretty great. I'm pretty excited for it but I don't now why (this might offend some people) but this feels like that Fan Splatoon 2 manga dub but with colors, and more effects.

    And less memes. Not that it hurts, hahah.

    But I think its a compliment if anything for both the official and unofficial dub, so it works out.

    Not sure how its peculiar to have a head canon of how a character from a manga sounds...unless you meant by something else?

    Regardless, just felt the voice was fitting.

    That tweening animation killed me. It's good, but Rider-Kun, stop being such a swag, come on! And, yup, yup, had the same idea that he had that voice.

    I thought it was the opposite of fitting. We're talking about a character who should be around age 14 to 17, and we already have an idea of how Inklings sound thanks to the game's voice clips, and yet this guy sounds like he should be 25+ years old with a chiseled body and an attitude that would realistically think Ink Battles are childish. It almost sounds like they cast the voice actor for the role as a joke. I could not, for the life of me, take him seriously.

    I think you hit it on the nose without realizing..."It almost sounds like they cast the voice actor for the role as a joke."

    This is a comedy based Manga. Its always been its main theme. Things that make no logical sense have the tendency to happen in the series. So Rider having this oddly older sounding voice is a bit amusing in itself due to the fact. Your not supposed to take him or anyone else seriously. And even if you did- there are some young people that do infact have older sounding voices. Its uncommon and a bit rare obviously, but not out of question.

    That said, I think its best just to enjoy the animation for what it is. But you have your right to dislike a voice and it's perfectly fine. Nothing bad on liking it either, though.


    On a side note, there was a interview with the voice cast...its linked in this tweet. But its all in Japanese so most of us wont know whats being said. But it does show more pictures of said cast.
