Bebop gets my vote.


I vote shows over movies mostly because I find it more difficult to have a story hold your attention for 26 episodes (appx. 9-10 hours), then it is for a movie usually 1-2 hours. So for the ability for a studio to make a single story line hold my attention for 10 hours they will get my vote. It is much more difficult, in my opinion, to make something to hold the audience's attention for 10 hours, then for only 2 hours.

But with that said. Mononoke is an awesome piece of work, and I will not be disappointed if it wins.

yeah, but also with a series of 26 episodes you get more room to screw up.
you;re allowed to have crappy episodes and boring plot lines here and there with a series.
with a movie you have to maintain quality from beginning to end for the entire two hours with a much
smaller margin for poor quality--if you screw up, there's no room to do it better next time with the
next episode with a movie.

We are basically saying the same thing. the root of what we are saying is the same :thumbup:

And personally I believe Bebop did not screw up at all in the 26 episodes. therefore as you said it is much more likely to have a tv series screwed up than it is for a movie. And because they did not screw it up (in my opinion) that is why it is a awesome piece of work.

That being said. I still agree that Mononoke is also an awesome piece of work and deserves all the respect and admiration that it gets.

As a parting note for now: I have seen people say that they won't vote for Bebop this year because it won last year. I do realize that this is strictly a opinion vote, but saying that is just silly. If Bebop was better then, it is better now too. It should have only been voted out if a new anime was better, not something that was previously beat by it. It's like voting for a new president just so you have a new guy, and saying: "Well the president we have now is the best president ever...but hew won election last time. Let's give the new guy a chance, even though he lost last time." The thought process is what interests me. But anyways, gratz to Mononoke!




Edit: Going off what Keiichi said about tv and movie being different at points...For next time if we want to compare apples to apples. Try a bracket of anime movies vs. other anime movies, and anime tv shows vs. other anime tv shows. So instead of Mononoke vs. Cowboy Bebop TV, it could be Mononoke vs. Cowboy Bepop the Movie.

no, i'm saying it's easier to screw up a movie because you have less time to tell the
story, introduce characters, etc.

i'm saying this because all the episodes of bebop i really enjoyed were the stand-alones,
not the canon, overall spike v. vicious+julie thing. if the series were condensed into a movie,
it would probably be THAT story and i wouldn't have enjoyed it at all.
still, i enjoyed bebop better than mononoke overall.
