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...

Re: AP 558 - Q. Quirks

(Wow, haunting the forums right when Andrew is posting a new topic. So...) First response! Seriously, though... the first quirk I think of is the one where a character with glasses pushes them back up on their face, from a position slightly lower down their nose. It is a trope that once seen, you ca...

Re: VGP 304 Discussion Topic: E3 Relevance?

I would LIKE to think E3 is and can remain relevant, but I have the niggling concern that it might be going the way of other such conventions and trade shows. The reason for this would not be particularly due to a fall in consumer/gamer interest — because I think gamers in particular are still quite...

Re: AP 557 - Q. Games

How about an action RPG in the world of Nausicaa? You get to fly steampunkish flying machines and fight giant bugs in the Poison Forest. Perhaps the apocalyptic giants would be too OP. Similar to this would be a flight combat sim and RPG based on the world of Last Exile? Flying machines, dreadnaught...

Re: AP 556 - Q. Studios

Of course, I love Studio Ghibli, even when I feel their character designs are more nostalgic than modernized (It still fits well their material, so it is forgiven.) But everything else in their animation is always stunning. Having said that, I tend to adhere to individual directors and lead animator...
