    Default Shakespeare the manga??

    now the bard's tales get reincarnated as manga.
    BBC has it: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/e...on/6647927.stm
    your opinions?

    Shakespeare manga sounds like a lame idea...
    Its pretty pathetic how low literary n00bs go to try to incorporate literature among the public, even among those who are pretty illiterate or those who don't practice it. As if the "urban adaptation" or Romeo and Juliet wasn't terrible, this sounds even lamer.

    Personally, I prefer Shakespeare the playwright.

    And judging by the teaser cover, with a Romeo straight out of a shoujo manga and a xxxHolic-lookalike Juliet, I'd say don't get your hopes set too high.

    Besides, Hamlet's good enough as it is. Don't fuck with it, please.

    Another retread of Classics Illustrated?
    Today is always the most enjoyable day. Just ask Yotsuba.

    Seconded. If they screw it up, I'm sending lots of hate-mail, and I'll send it with the mail to the creators of the D.Gray-Man anime.

    On the other hand, at least they're just using the plot and not the original setting or anything. That's okay. Those are good basic plots and maybe they'll be different enough from the original that I won't cry with shame whenever I think of them.

    If the animation is good and it sticks to the story lines pretty well, I don't see why it would be bad, per se. Although, I bet whoever did it would royally suck it up in the process of making the plays into more "modern" and "contemporary".
