Let's be real here, his name is attached no matter what he does. He's the author. And he's hardly promoting it beyond his "please enjoy the anime" comment in this week's Young Animal, which is about as standard and non-committal as you can get in Japan.NightCrawler said:What is truly shameful is that Miura has his name attached to this travesty. He was a script supervisor (if i recall correctly) on the 97 anime, and that came out pretty good. He distanced himself from the movies, and those were unwatchable. So why is he involved this time? He's even promoting it. His role is most likely very small, but if he's attached, i bet he at least saw some form of a script(s). That makes his complicity very disappointing.
Anyway, if we want to hope beyond reason, I was talking to Gobolatula earlier about what to expect for the next episodes and told him that maybe Miura saw what they had early on in the production and decided to get involved to salvage the mess. Obviously what was already done couldn't be changed, but maybe the later parts will be less terrible as a result.
For better or worse, that's just not his personality.NightCrawler said:He should've just Alan Moore'd all over this garbage.
