    "Zetman" Series Talkback

    Like This Thread!

    I'm not sure what to think because I found out this on April Fools'

    Anyway on March 30th, VIZ Anime posted a "Zetman" simulcast trailer on their Youtube page, announcing they'd start rolling out episodes on April 2nd. Now maybe I'm completely under a rock because I didn't see this mentioned on ANN or Crunchyroll or anywhere. I just found out on VIZ Anime's Facebook page, a post made on April 1st!

    So if I'm missing something feel free to delete the thread.

    Viz should stop licensing anime they never intend on releasing.

    Good to know I'll be able to watch this as it airs. Now hopefully I only like it enough to watch it all, and not enough to want to ever own it. You can stop this, Viz. I'm sure someone else would have picked it up.

    It is certainly legit considering that Anime News Network stopped doing April Foold jokes a few years ago, and they've also posted the news.

    So are we going to have talkback for the show here, or should there be a seperate thread?

    An okay first episode I suppose. Kinda sad that it looks like their going for a compressed adaption. Well hopefully they won't mess with the central themes too much doing it this way. Fight scenes look like they'll be pretty impressive at least.

    I do hope this gets good enough streaming numbers that Viz'll bring over the manga. That would be pretty awesome.

    Episode 1

    Those characters look really familiar after Tiger & Bunny. In some ways this really reminded me of that. Not very often you see those kinds of superhero designs in anime series these days. And of course their human forms look very similar thanks to the creator of this / character designer of that. As for the actual storyline, I think it's interesting enough to keep me watching, but I doubt it will be anything I love.

    Zetman....Headbut!!! Zetman....evisceration!!!! ....wait....-_-

    I've been reading the earlier chapters of the manga to familiarize myself with the story. This episode had the first twelve in it, although in an altered and abrieviated form.

    Spoiler:
    Kouga already being friends with Jin was an interesting change. Not sure what it brings to the story, but it will add an interesting dynamic to their relationship. Also took out Akemi's pimp being the one to scar her, and the fact that the lizard man wasn't actually violent until his fully transformed(he actually tried to kill himself first).


    Weird theme song. But that's Japan for you.

    Need to see how this one goes.

    That was absurdly rushed, but i supposed its necessarily if it will only be a 13 episode series. The changes like Jin being friends with Kouga since childhood instead of meeting later in life like in the manga will i guess make things it easier to move things even faster later on.
