Re: AP 646 - Try Anime

If the synopsis or trailer for a new/prospective anime looks like it might have a good or creative premise, especially one that might offer the chance for a good story, I am more likely to give it a try. And if the artwork/animation looks promising, then that bodes for an even better chance as a "wi...

Re: AP 644 - Addictive

Several series come to mind. The last one I recall that I (and my family) watched the entire season in one sitting was the first season of Vinland Saga . Truly an engaging tale for us. Action. Intrigue. Historical context. And great characters. https://static1.cbrimages.com/wordpress/wp-content/uplo...

Re: AP 643 - Anime Birthdays

While I found a lot of entries for my own birthdate, December 12th, I do not recognize hardly any of them. I don't even recognize most of the series they are from. But of the series I do recognize, there are: Ovan from the .Hack (dot-Hack) series. https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/dothack/images/7...

Re: AP 342 - Supernatural Beings

SO many to name. I will have to mention the one I can always reference, Senko from Sewayaki Kitsune no Senko-san (Helpful Fox Senko-san). A kitsune who is so sweet and wholesome, and penultimately soothing. What's not to love about her? https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/f/fe/Sewayaki_K...

Re: AP 341 - Spin off

I guess a spinoff would not include a simple continuation of a given series, as there are a lot of those I'd nominate. Rather, a spinoff would be a side story or character to a given work. In that case, I would like to see a new spinoff of Cowboy Bebop -- with the ending we got for the original seri...

Re: AP 640 - Anime Items

This is a tough one. I think we've already had a topic on vehicles from anime we'd like IRL, so I will avoid duplicating that, which should narrow things down... a little. I think having Gilgamesh's Gate of Babylon from the Fate Series (see Fate/Zero for example) would be OP, which would mean having...

Re: VGP 345 Discussion Topic: Partners and Sidekicks!

I could name many companions in Skyrim and Fallout 4 . Especially the ones added by mods. And for as many hours as I have devoted to countless play-throughs, it would be a natural. But instead I will mention Nier Automat a's 9S who is your companion when you play 2B or A2, but also you have 2B as a ...

Re: AP 639 - Wholesome Love

Oh, there are far too many favorites to mention. Unfortunately a lot of romances in Anime are not entirely wholesome, let alone have fully consummated happy endings. I can still name a few standouts that come to mind, mostly those that do not devolve to pure romance, but have a good story to go alon...

Re: AP 638 - Anime Personality Quiz

I don't consider myself the "Occidental Otaku", as that doesn't seem to fit. And none of the other classic tropes fit either.
I also don't fit in any "dere" types either. So I can't offer anything all that fun to talk about. *shrug*

Re: AP 637 - Underrated Anime of the 2010's

I can name a number of underrated anime, but I will mention those that first come to mind: Log Horizon (2013-2014) was an early issekai that was overshadowed by SAO. The first season was outstanding but the second season did seem to falter, but still very good. https://external-content.duckduckgo.co...
