One of the biggest issues that consistently crops up in anime fandom is adaptions. While a lot of animated series from American and France tend to be original properties, Japan often times has a mix, and many times relies on Manga to adapt. Enter Yamada and the Seven Witches adaptation. The series currently runs on Crunchyroll and continues the ever current manga adaptation trends.
As of right now, the series is on it’s third episode (2nd episode just aired) and it already took out the 1 collections book. At this pace it should clear 6 collections by episode 12 (meaning that the first arc will be done). To emphasize, many times as people will note, Naruto would do only 2 chapters per episode, and one person even said that the first three episodes of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? is the first light novel.
Yep, that is fast. Yep, it shows no signs of stopping. Many fans will arguably complain but I feel that this adaptation begs the question, at what point do adaptations live and die by it’s adaption?
