Discussion of the problems of adaptation decay across different media - manga, anime, games, prose, etc. Manga are turned into anime. Novels become anime. Video games, role-playing games and collectible card games become manga and anime. Manga and anime are turned into games. Sometimes the transformation works wonderfully, but sometimes the new version loses something essential. Join us for a discussion of the phenomenon of adaptation decay.
