If Aeon Flux were anime (another weird late-night post)

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread

Aeon Flux, the anime version:

1. All the characters are 15 years younger.

2. Everyone wears "revealing" outfits (which is to say, less so).

3. All Monicans are bikers.

4. All Breens are salarymen... that, or genetic engineers working on a secret government project.

5. Aeon slaps Trevor and calls him "baka" in every episode.

6. Instead of 16 eps, the series runs for 106... with the same amount of plot.

7. Obligatory cute sidekick that eats everything in sight... unfortunately, this would be either Bambara or Fatboy.

8. 15-minute-long, psychic S&M duels.

9. Much recycled footage of tongues.

10. Before attempting the border run to Monica, Sybil takes a moment to admire the cherry blossoms.

11. When removing Aeon's underwear in "Ether Drift Theory", Trevor suffers a massive nosebleed.

12. Even MORE monologues.

13. Chibi-Demiurge. Nuff said.

14. Female fans of Trevor insist he had a "thing" going on with Guildemere.

15. Special "gag episode" where Aeon & Trevor put aside their differences and attend the carnival. Much hilarity and product placement ensues.

16. Characters agonize about killing... but go on doing it anyway.

17. The Seraphs... actually, they're pretty much unchanged.

18. Only four of the eps are ever translated.

19. Eventually, Trevor snaps, climbs in his mechanical suit, and just stomps on Bregna.

20. 3 words: Fanservice, Fanservice, Fanservice!

You forgot a big one: every time Aeon changes into her "mission" outfit, there's a minute-long transformation scene full of recycled footage in which she denounces Trevor's evil regime.

The charactars eyes will have to enlarge to about 30% of the facial area. You missed that too. Their mouths will all have to become narrower with fuller lips. And, no aquiline noses, Aeon's face will have to be completely re edited. In fact you can use the same face for each character, just change hair and costumes. Apparently caucasians all look alike to the Japanese. Who would have expected that.

Everybody's a critic...

Dubbed episode, become imposible to understand as you try in vein to understand why Trevor wants the machine to have sex with 12 Gaishas(sp?) at once.

In the anime this is taken from eventually the machine did indeed eventually summon a deamon.

My ears are bleeding! Frost, was that an laugh?

It should read English Dubbed laugh there.

Eradicator replaced with Astro-Boy, instead of trying to kill those who enter the habitat, he discusts them by looking cute and acting innocent. Don't be fooled though, he is small, but only in size!

Seraphs would remain MOSTLY the same - they'd just be a musical duo :)

Aeon would occasionally clasp her hands together in delight whenever Trever acts 'brave' and discuss privately with her cat her secret dream to one day be the First Lady of Bregna...

great one Barb!

Aeon as wandering ronin, playing the Monican and Breen forces against each other? (Now THAT I wouldn't mind seeing)
