The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 25
Chapter 25 . “Soul Eater: 0”
Li Ruoxuan tilted his head, looked at the planning book proposed by Xu Rui, and turned the first page suspiciously.
It took about ten minutes, Li Ruoxuan carefully read the plan, and gently put it down, she felt a huge impact.
First of all, this is a story that is not mentioned in the original manga of “Soul Eater”. It can be regarded as a prequel. The protagonist Bai Jianshi does not appear in the prequel. Only the heroines Li Leshen and Huangfu Kaoru, the design of the twin heroines can be said in this era. It is extremely rare, not to mention that the plan requires that the interaction between the two girls be shown. The plot described in it is only the text that makes Li Ruoxuan, who is a girl, blush and heartbeat.
Secondly, although there are some more original characters in the plan, all of them can be connected with the characters in the original work. Simply put, it is a reasonable fan creation, which will not contradict the original work, but can also explain some of the original work. Foreshadowing, it can be said that only those who have really dig deep into every detail of the comics can carry out such derivative creations.
Finally, the structure of this twelve-episode animation.
“This…this is too exciting at the beginning, is it really okay to do this? And this ending…can the audience accept it?”
Li Ruoxuan exclaimed, even the little hair on his head almost stood up from his braids.
Animations adapted from comics are mostly advertisements of the original, but Xu Rui’s planning almost completely ignores the plot of the original comics. In Li Ruoxuan’s view, it is an original with the title “Soul Eater”. Animation!
At this time, Li Ruoxuan suddenly realized that the person sitting in front of her was not a simple college graduate, but Xu Rui, who independently produced phenomenal short animations such as “Voice of Stars”. The reason why she felt that the phantom was promising. , Also because of Xu Rui.
Originally, she was a little skeptical of Xu Rui, but when she actually saw the plan Xu Rui handed over, she really felt the amazing creative ability of this young man.
You need to know that it has been less than a week since Xu Rui graduated, and it took him so much time from the time he started contacting the original “Soul Eater” to making this plan.
Of course, Li Ruoxuan would not know that there is a similar cartoon and animation in the parallel world. After Xu Rui came into contact with “Soul Eater” at that time, he immediately adapted it on the basis of it, and the speed and quality are naturally guaranteed.
“Editor Xueluo, according to my investigation, “Soul Eater” is only a popular work even in “Monthly Youth Frontline”. It may be a bit rude to say that, but Mr. A Chuang is slightly less capable of drawing or arranging stories. It is inferior to the first-line cartoonists, which makes it difficult for the story of “Soul Eater” to stand out from other works.”
Xu Rui explained unhurriedly.
“Look at “The King of Thieves”, whether it is the setting of strange fruits or the development of various martial arts, it is unique. The concept of weapon awakening is also very handsome. Coupled with the excellent painter of the teacher on the shore, it is exciting. The plot is the most well-deserved Chinese manga, but the story of “Soul Eater” has no special features. Almost all of them have been used by predecessors. Probably, the electric iron and hydraulic sword drawing are more eye-catching.”
His words caused Li Ruoxuan to think about these issues. Li Ruoxuan considered these issues when he took over “Soul Eater”, but she always thought that she was just a responsible editor and assisted the cartoonist in creating, so she could only express similar opinions euphemistically. , And Mr. A Chuang, tired of catching up with drafts every month, there is no extra time and energy for additional ideas.
To put it simply, routine kingly works do not require too much brainstorming to construct a plot, just follow the script and follow the path of the predecessors, but this kind of work is also the most competitive, and “Soul Eater” is undoubtedly a failure. By.
Li Ruoxuan is also worried about this. If the animation fails, the popularity of “Soul Eater” can only continue to fall, and eventually be cut in the middle. This will be a blow to Mr. A Chuang or to her.
“The story of “Soul Eater: Zero” is an unconventional story that uses an unconventional opening to unfold. Compared to the slightly similar original, I think such an animation will be more popular with the audience.”
Xu Rui said sincerely, making Li Ruoxuan a little embarrassed.
“But with such a large-scale originality, will fans of the original work feel dissatisfied…”
She thought of an adaptation of a car racing manga before. The production company not only turned all the male characters in it into beautiful girls with big breasts, but also turned good racing cars into superpowers. She wanted to please the audience with this. Being criticized wildly by fans of the original work, the audience was not interested in this kind of hyper-expansion. In the end, only six episodes were played.
Li Ruoxuan believes that the adaptation is not chaotic, it must be based on the original.
“Editor Xueluo, we are an animation company. We consider the audience’s ideas. We do not agree with the standard that some original work companies require as long as they can move. We believe that even if it is an adaptation of the work, it should be the best While showing it to the audience, of course, we can make an animation that completely replicates the original work. This is not difficult, but I still hope you can negotiate with Mr. A Chuang and see his opinion.”
Xu Rui’s attitude is not strong, but the gentle words have the power that Li Ruoxuan cannot refuse. If she has not seen this plan, perhaps Li Ruoxuan will oppose it to the end, but after reading it, those stories have been haunting Li Ruoxuan. Can’t disperse in his mind.
She is eager to see this story appear on the screen!
“…Indeed, I can’t make the decision on my own. UU reading www.uukanshu.com I will take it back and show it to Mr. A Chuang and ask for his opinion.”
Li Ruoxuan hesitated for a long time, and still took the planning book handed over by Xu Rui and put it in his school bag.
“Then I will leave first.”
She picked up her bag and adjusted her straps. Xu Rui didn’t look at the indescribable shaking, and cleared her throat.
“If you have any news, please contact me directly.”
Cheng Kewei hasn’t spoken much since just now, and only now has he spoken and handed a simple business card.
It is his contacts who can contact “Monthly Youth Frontline”, but Xu Rui negotiates the specific plan.
On the one hand, because Xu Rui is the person in charge of Phantom Telecom, this plan was proposed by him. Xu Rui can best express the ideas in it. On the other hand, Cheng Kewei also wants to take this to see Xu Rui’s negotiation ability, and the result is as shown See, Ling Cheng Kewei is quite satisfied.
Originally, he thought Xu Rui was just excellent in creativity and technique, and had to rely on their old bones in other aspects. Now it seems that Xu Rui does have excellent abilities as the boss of an animation company.
“Okay thank you.”
Li Ruoxuan took the business card, put it away carefully, and left the meeting room after greeted the two of them. On the way, she couldn’t help but glanced at Iasa’s direction, confirming that the gothic loli girl was drawing seriously instead of In the battlefield summoning, he killed and killed, and then quietly left.
“Do you think the author would agree to such an adaptation?”
Cheng Kewei touched the beard on his chin and asked.
“I think he should have no other choice, but if he doesn’t agree early, our production cycle may not keep up with next January.”
Xu Rui smiled and answered confidently.
