I find those who love an anime really loves that anime and wouldn’t appreciate a Hollywood adaptation of it because of hollywood’s unfortunate track record with these kinds of films. And I don’t understand why this is the case. Because adapting that film into another medium doesn’t change anything about the original thus it doesn’t change your experience watching that anime. Hell, even if the film has the same name as “Your Name” and is marketed and described as the adaptation of the anime; it doesn’t even necessarily have to be interpreted as it being the same story.
Even if you watched the movie, didn’t like and then rewatched the anime: I sincerely doubt it’ll effect your feelings on the anime. You might even feel better rewatching the anime after watching the movie because re-experiencing the anime you love in all of its glory should remind you how much better it was than the movie.
So, in all honesty, there is nothing wrong with Hollywood movie adaptations. If you already enjoyed the anime you should be indifferent towards. Or in fact, it should be celebrated! Why? Well, here’s food for thought: there will be some new viewers who will like it. And some of those viewers might research exactly where this movie came from and become “ONE OF US!”. As a result, the anime we all love gains new viewers and grows our community. It just doesn’t make sense why we would ever bust our balls over something that benefits us in the long run, if you have the answer to my dilemma then I’m all ears.
