- Eh, what about Gouriki? What about Gouriki? (´；ω；｀)
しかし押井かぁ・・・結構な賭け事だなｗIt's abnormal how much you guys love Gouriki www
But Oshii, huh... That looks like a huge gamble w
押井はダメだ。Oshii's no good
失敗を見越して安くあげたか> budget of \2 billion
So they're making it cheap because they're already predicting a flop.
押井って事は、レイバーなんぞ欠片も出てこないなIf it's Oshii, then we can't expect even a fragment of those labor units to appear
もしくはガンヘッドI feel it will turn into something like Avalon or Tachiguishi-something.
また精神崩壊とか哲学とかわけわかんない感じになるのかSo it'll once again have schizophrenia or philosophical, hard to understand themes?
I get the feeling that the output will satisfy only himself.
この作品の肝は太田The heart of this show is Ohta
あぁ、完全に終わったわ、もう終わりまくり、撮影前から終わってるAhhh, it's over. Everything's over. It was all over even before it started.
剛力の方がネタ的には面白かったんだが。I like her face though.
But Gouriki would have been a better choice if we were going for laughs.
会見見たが筧利夫がやたらネットの評判を気にしてたI saw the presscon, and Toshio Kakei seemed really concerned about the Internet reception
ただ、問題は監督。押井お前はダメだI don't really have complaints about the heroine.
But the problem here is the director. Oshii, you're no good.
Now it's guaranteed that it won't be popular.
これ、千葉繁がシゲさん役で出るのか。Oh, so Shigeru Chiba will play Shige-san, huh
今の人気女優って生温い仕事しかできないから、真野が起用されて嬉しいThe popular actresses right now can only do halfhearted projects, so I'm happy that Mano was selected for this one.
おもしれーわwwOshii who has this live action complex, is directing this ww
That's funny ww
泉 野明（いずみ のあ）じゃなくて
泉野 明（いずみの あきら）とかｗSo the lead role isn't
泉 野明 (Izumi Noa) but
泉野 明 (Izumino Akira) huh LOL
(* pun on Hanzawa Naoki's "bai-gaeshi" catchphrase which means "double payback". "Pai" is short for "Oppai" or "boobies")
もう押井はパトに関わるなよOshii shouldn't get involved with Patlabor anymore
お前ら結局剛力にやってほしかったのか？Did you guys really want Gouriki to play the role?
こけ臭半端ないSmells nothing but flop to me
めっちゃ楽しみI'm so excited about this!
これはなかなかパトっぽいというか、ヘッドギアのメンバー全員が納得できそうThis one actually looks Patlabor-y, and I feel all the members in Head Gear would approve of this
突き放すんだったらとことんやってくれSo will they make it similar, or make it totally different from the original?
If they do make it different, then I hope they make it as distant as possible.
後は大田やヒロミちゃんの配役が問題だBig bro Shiba will be playing Shige, huh?
The next problem is who they'll cast for Ohta and Hiromi-chan.
20億も使うならアニメ作れるだろThey could've made an anime instead if they had a budget of 2 billion
イングラム：剛力Akira Izumino: Erina Mano
押井の実写作品は二度と観たくありませんI don't want to watch an Oshii live action movie ever again
押井叩いとけばガチの通ぶれるという風潮And it seems that there's this trend where you can act like a nonconformist when you bash Oshii
昔押井が「レイバーのあのデザインはあり得ない、もし実写化するならこんなデザインにする」みたいな記事を読んだ気がするんだけど、あのデザイン画はなかったことになったのか。I remember reading an article where Oshii criticized the old Patlabor design and gave his own idea if he were to make a live action version. So are they treating the revised designs he did back then like it didn't happen?
なんか潔くないなAkira Izumi? WTF.
If you're going with new characters then just change it in its entirety.
It doesn't feel graceful.
20億ドブに捨てたか2 billion down the drain, huh
料理の最後にちょろっといれるなら味を引き立たせてより美味く仕上がるがタバスコだけでスープを作ったら誰も飲めないだろ。Mamoru Oshii's like Tabasco sauce.
It would make the dish more tasty if you just add a little when it's cooked, but no one can eat soup made entirely of Tabasco.
不眠症の人は是非、押井作品を観ようPeople who have insomnia, I encourage you to watch Oshii's works.
