    Definitely going to listen to this first chance I get!

    I may not always be well-versed in what's hip or hot in manga but when this dropped a few years ago I was super early in following the manga adaptation of the light novel. I loved it! Just never spoke about it with anyone ;~; forever alone

    When I heard about the Hollywood film I went to watch it opening night and liked the adaptation as well, although I was particular of the differences. Still, good movie. Excited to see the sequel.

    So yeah, super pleasant surprise to see it featured on a podcast. You guys are a couple of respectable people so I look forward to listening to the discourse.

      Not much discourse, more a joined hyping up and gushing. We're both pretty big fans of this manga.

    I enjoyed the series for what it was. I felt like it ended well. I don't think that the Edge of Tomorrow did a great job capturing the series. But as most live action films they tend to diverge from the source. I would love to see a small TV series made for this tho. That would be a great action packed anime to the likes of God Eater.

      The ending (of the manga) was bittersweet for me ;( whereas the ending of the film was more hopeful.
