You should have left it at "It's not an argument, Fawst, it was a statement," and not edited the rest in. You know what I meant. We've had this argument (call it a discussion if it feels better) before, many times. Why beat the dead horse further?
And I really did write that poorly, I'll cede you that one
I meant to say that a live action version of an anime, or a cartoon, or a book, or anything has the potential to be better than the source material. I would argue that Transformers is a good example.
Hell, I've seen the light. I understand just how much Matrix ripped off a lot of stuff. But it's still more enjoyable to me than GITS (the first Matrix, that is).
Aaaaaaaaaanyways, I was just being cautious, and trying to nip it in the bud early, rather than have it turn into another debate.
