Regarding audio dramas, I wanted to point out that even video games get them (like The King of Fighters and Samurai Shodown), and that often manga are made into audio dramas before anime. Fushigi Yuugi was an audio drama (with a completely different cast from the anime) a while before it became an anime, for example. Black Cat, which is finally becoming an anime this year, has already had a few audio dramas (but the same cast from them is going to be in the anime). It's really interesting.
Usually the cast from the drama goes onto the anime too, but that isn't always the case. Perhaps different studios or something? I remember distinctly that Fushigi Yuugi and Video Girl Ai have dramas with different casts from their anime, but I can't actually think of too many others (not that I'm familiar with an insane amount). It's kinda neat, as a seiyuu fan, to see the different casting ideas that way. The FY dramas went as far to have image songs for the characters, which is really weird after you're familiar with the anime seiyuu. Anime hyper

*rambleramble* I have totally given away my totally seiyuu whoredom, haven't I? Anime cry I also used too many parentheses. Oh well. *post* Blah.

How is downloading porn more legal than downloading fansubs?

Yay for Kamichu! I checked out this one on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. If I were easily given in to hype (which I am) I'd call it Spirited Away The TV. So far I've gotten to Ep 3 and it's still episodic, but each of the stories are a lot of fun.

Forget Full Metal Panic, this is the show of the summer.

It's pretty subjective, but porn sites can have subscription/paid services, free trials, etc. Fansubs aren't legal, though.

ScraPrin Audio Dramas?! Sweet! Won't understand a darn thing, but hey, it's still cool. (It'll go with my Tenchi and CCS dramas)

Fansubs are illegal. Porn is not illegal. The end.

I have never heard of a drama series coming from an anime. The Chrno Crusade and ScraPrin drama CDs were both taken from the manga before the animes were even announced. There are drama CDs for pretty much every popular manga in Japan, and many for bishoujo games as well.

The reason they're not made from anime, is that there's no point, unless there's added content, which there rarely is.

I highly suggest checking out Tide-Line Blue, especially if you like Submarine 707R.

Also, while it may not be considered to be part of "this season" in Japan, at least He Is My Master puts a very good spin on the genre (therefore making it the only genuinely good harem/T'n'A show).[/quote]

I think what Ms. Answerman meant was that a manga will receive the drama CD treatment -before- becoming an anime. There's plenty of series out there that only have audio dramas, too. I suppose it's a lack of quite enough popularity to push them into the 'anime adaptation' bracket.

Either way, when a series gets an audio drama, I tend to take it as a good sign if I'm hoping for an anime adaptation.

I remember someone made an AMV / text tralslation of an Evangelion audio drama that was pretty good.

This is beside the point, but 19th century = 1800s. They didn't have radios in the 1800s. But they did in the early 1900s, i.e. the 20th century. We're in the 21st century now.

Combining two of this week's topics, I want to point out that SutePuri was a serial novel, not a manga, from which they made the CDs and then the anime.

For another franchise that combines the two in an interesting way, check out Starship Girl Yamamoto Yohko. Yohko started as a novel and was adapted into an extremely popular radio drama. Then they made an OVA, based on the rather silly antics of the radio show. A couple of years later they made a TV series, this time using the original books as the source.

So, if you want to compare an audio drama to its original work, without actually listening to one, try comparing the two Yamamoto Yohko animes - the OVA (no plot or character development to speak of) and the TV series (very, very weird show).

Totally agree with Kamichu! It should be a show that any anime fan can get into (minus diehard action & yaoi fans). But...

Even more so then Koi Koi 7?! But as a side thought, is there anyone working for ANN that enjoys most harem shows and/or mindless antics?

Most harem shows and/or mindless antics? No. But there *are* people working for ANN who enjoy quality harem shows and clever shows with mindless antics, like Cromartie High School or School Rumble.

Quality? Harem? Why, just the thought of those two words together starts a rip in the fabric of space and time. Laughing
