   Similar but not really the same. I read Ender's Game and of course loved it but watching Bokurano does not give you any sense of deja vu.  

   News is the Ender's Game movie has been scrapped.

   Having been part of anime fandom for many years I saw somewhat of a cyclic occurrence in anime.  I wanted to ask if anyone on MA-SOC feels that anime is taking a different  direction or is it still cyclic.  Also is that direction is good or bad?
