Re: AP 569 - Q. Crossover

Can one imagine the world in which all of the titles from one prolific studio or one prolific director were really part of a shared world? Imagine if all of the titles from say, J.C.Staff or Kyoto Animation were connected. The mind boggles at the thought. Haruhi Suzumiyah would totally ruin everythi...

Re: VGP 309 Discussion Topic: Games With Missing Content

It's Activision — almost as bad as EA. This is the same publisher that encouraged Bungie to remove actual content from the initial install of Destiny, only to parcel it out in subsequent DLC, with that content still on the original disc awaiting being unlocked. THAT Activision. (Yeah, I'm still chap...

Re: AP 568 - Q. Disappoint

I think I will mention one of recent vintage, My sons and I decided to watch Netsuzou Trap all the way to the end, all the while thinking it would have a subverted plot from what it advertised. It advertises and telegraphs with a sledge hammer the blatant Yuri/GL type of story. And there is so much ...

Re: AP 567 - Q. Meet

Well, since Kusanagi from GiTS has been mentioned already... Then I will mention my next choice. I would like to have gotten in on the conversation that takes place in Fate/Zero between Saber/Artoria, Iskander and Gilgamesh concerning the nature of kingship and rule. It infuriated me how the other t...

Re: AP 566 - Q. Killers

Ah, darn, Inoue-sama beat me to the punch, as I too would have named Light Yagami from Death Note. But there are still a few murderous characters in Anime I could name, those that one might find hard to hate, or conversely love to hate. There is an abundance of characters (among many) in the series ...

Re: AP 565 - Q. AMV's

(Second time's the charm, hopefully.)

I cannot seem to recall any AMV's of recent note, but Andrew's GIF on the OP with Araragi reminds me of Nisemonagatari and one of its openings (Platinum Disco)

It doesn't really count, but there it is. :)

Re: AP 564 - Q. Pilgrimage 3 Revelations Game of the Year Edition & Knuckles

There are quite a number of "crapsack" worlds in Anime that most folks would hate to wind up in. I could name several, from Tokyo 3 of Akira, to the world of Desert Punk. But if I had to choose one I would personally dread, it would be the world of Hellsing, where mortals don't really stand a chance...

Re: AP 563 - Q. Animals

There are a lot of animals that play critical parts in Anime. One that immediately springs to mind is this adorable character: https://topdogtips.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Most-Awesome-Dogs-in-Anime-5.jpg Ein from Cowboy Bebop, A "data dog" that is actually a member of the crew.

Re: AP 561 - Q. Pilgrimage 2 (Isekai Edition) & Knuckles

I mentioned in answering the "real world" counterpart to this question (see here http://www.anime-pulse.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=35132#p38327 ) that I was more interested in the fictional locales of anime, and so now that we are discussing it in this follow-on topic, I will reiterate/confirm wh...
